PERFECT VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Tom and Debbie are perfect hosts. My wife, daughter and I stayed for a week in this perfect cabin. Tom and Debbie made sure we had everything that we needed. They have water toys and let everybody use them. The landscaping in the yard is done perfectly. We didn't use the fire pit but it was there if we wanted. Perfect location on lake Winnisquam but just minutes to Winnipesaukee. Hope to come back next year!

LOVED THE WINNISQUAM COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Winnisquam cottage was so relaxing and fun! We loved playing in the water off the dock, pedaling in the pedal boat, and taking fun day trips in the area. The Murphys were fantastic hosts and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun stay on the lake. Thank you Murphys!

NINE YEARS AND COUNTING!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent our 9th year with the Murpy's and hope for many more! We love the quiet charm of the cottage and look forward to see Tom and Deb every summer. The cottage is quaint and clean with plenty of room for our family of 5. The dock is the best part, the water starts shallow and sandy (perfect for youngers kids) but is very deep at the end of the dock (fun for the older kids/adults to jump in and swim to their hears content.) Our kids have many wonderful memories spending their summers at the Murphy's cottage!

PERFECT VACATION SPOT IN THE LAKES REGION

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is perfect for people who want to experience all that the lakes region has to offer during the day and come back to a quiet Lakeside cottage at night. The hosts (who live in the other house on the property) are amazing. They were extremely helpful in giving us some tips about attractions and hiking locations in the area, and gave us full access to their dock, canoe, fire pit, etc. Yet they gave us our space and our privacy too. We spent our week touring the area, going to many shops, restaurants, marinas, and other attractions. The cottage is only a 10-15 minute drive to many of these. But the rest of the time we were enjoying the quiet no wake zone part of Lake Winnisquam, taking the canoe out, jumping off the dock, and taking the dog for a swim. Another great part about Tom and Debbie- doing business with them is simple. The rate was VERY fair for a rental with Lake access, and all fees, taxes, etc were included in it. And they let us bring our dog. He's a big part of our family, and it was so nice being able to bring him to enjoy the lake instead of leaving him at home at a kennel. All in all we had a great time renting here, and already have a deposit on our week next summer.

THE ULTIMATE VACATION AT THE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This is our third year staying at the cottage and it hardly seems possible that we love it more this year than the last two. Can't wait to see what next year wil bring. Some rain. Some shine. Every minute was perfect. Slept like the dead! Arose like the fully awake to swim each early morning, sharing the lake only with the loons at that hour. Canoeing, sunning, reading, eating, hiking, touristing, drives in beautiful country, movies, plays...And the warm and wonderful hospitality of Tom, Deb, and Ari! Cottage is lovely and comfortable, meeting all our needs and wants. It is so quiet, one can actually hear the hum of the hummingbirds! Time to reserve for 2014!

DEFINITELY A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 4 of 5
This lake house had everything just as described. It was nice and clean and Tom & Debbie were excellent hosts. We would definitely recommend this rental to family or friends. It was easy to find with the great directions sent to us. On one of the cloudy days we took a short ride to Castle in the Clouds and on another a day we went shopping at the outlet in Tilton. We ate at a few good restaurants too; such as Guisseppe's and Twin Docks. We loved listening to the loons on the lake.
