Interaction with Guests:
We live on the property and assist our guests with check-in, boat rentals, finding local attractions, and any other way we can. One of our reviewers says it best: 'Cindy and Gary are experienced hosts who know how to welcome guests and offer assistance, but also leave space for privacy. They are genuinely nice people, and we felt completely comfortable with them'. We have new guests and guests that have been coming for 43 or more years.
We are within walking distance to the quaint town of Center Harbor. There are wonderful little shops in town including Keepsake Quilting, a bookstore, a grocery store, ice cream stands, restaurants and even a gazebo for band concerts on Friday evenings.

About Gary and Cindy Kunz
Our seven bedroom lodge was built in 1915 as a private home. Cottages were built later and became Lawrence Cottages. The Luce family purchased the resort in 1960 and we continue to strive to maintain comfort and peacefulness while balancing the historical significance of waterfront housekeeping cottages.

Why Gary and Cindy Kunz chose Center Harbor
A westerly exposure means sun all afternoon in our swimming area and beautiful sunsets!
Our customers (some have been returning for over 40 years now) feel there is something special about our beautiful location on this pristine lake.
What makes this cottage unique
A deep well on the property assures excellent drinking water.
Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing for all ages. Children love to catch fish in and around the boathouse and many improve their swimming skills during their stay.
There are few locations on the 'big lake' that offer so much privacy without a long drive to the store and services. Restaurants and groceries are only 2 minutes by car or boat. Restaurants ranging from family fast food to gourmet meals are within a couple of miles.
