Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently rented this house for a girls trip from California. Kevin was absolutely amazing, he responded to our inquiries right away and made himself available for any and all questions. When we arrived at the house, we were blown away. The house itself was gorgeous, it was imaculate and so well stocked with everything we could possibly need. The view was a whole other story, just breathtaking!! We also dealt with April and she was incredible as well, she was so quick to get back to us if we had questions. We would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful escape, they definitely know how to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We can't wait to come back!!

Absolutely recommend

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything it is advertised to be and then some. The owner is responsive, cooperative and conscientious. The property manager is the best I have encountered. Clean and spacious, perfect location, quiet and relaxing. Grandkids loved it as did us older folk.

Thankyou Kevin (owner) and April (mgr). Definitely an A+ !

Great Place for those who love the outdoors!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend with my family and celebrating my brother's birthday! Enjoyed ice fishing during the day right out in front of the house and sitting fireside relaxing at night. House had everything we had expected and was exactly what we were looking for with plenty of cookware and appliances for any meal you might want to prepare. Plenty of amenities are accessible and only a short drive to the bustle of Lake Winnipesaukee! We'll absolutely keep this place in mind for any future trips we might be taking. Thanks Kevin and April!

Great Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our weekend on Loche lake in this home. Beautiful location with easy access to the lake and trails for the snowmobiles and not too far from Gunstock skiing. Very comfortable. We look forward to staying here again. Wonderful getaway.

Amazing 2014 Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have vacationed in this lovely home and we will be back again for sure! We stayed with our parents and our sons, ages 10 and 12.

The house was well cared for and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for the week. Plenty of linens were provided and having the laundry available was a plus! The layout is great - lots of room for everyone.

We were all able to relax. The kids had a great time in the water and on the float. The beach area is the perfect place to sit in the sun, but there is plenty of shade by the water too. We had the choice of dining inside at the large family table or outside on the deck. We enjoyed fires in the outdoor fireplace in the evenings. The kids did some fishing off the dock. So many options at one location - really something for everyone!

Kevin is friendly and easy to work with - we plan to come back! Thanks for a great vacation!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time renting this lake house. We had a wonderful time. We now live in Florida, however our family is in New England. We rented this house for 2 weeks and were able to enjoy it with out children and grandchildren. The house is located close to nearby attractions, however while there you feel like you are very secluded. The adult kids as well as the grandkids enjoyed the swim raft with the ladder and diving board. Easy access to the lake. The house is well equipped with everything that you would need. The owners (Kevin and Lisa) as well as the property manager (April) were very helpful and informative with any questions that we had. If something was needed or requested, it was taken care of promptly. I would definitely recommend this as a vacation home. In fact, we have it rented again for another 2 weeks next summer.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for February vacation. It was just as terrific as we hoped it would be. Despite lots of snow in the week before our arrival, the driveway was plowed, the walkway clear. Over a foot of snow on our second day was plowed that night so that we could be out early and on the ski slopes at Gunstock.

The house is clean and comfortable. Our kids felt right at home. The fireplace is terrific and there is a huge woodpile to keep you warm. April, the agent, was very helpful, and Kevin, the owner, was very accommodating when we asked if we could extend our stay.

We've rented houses before, and this was one of the best experiences we've ever had. We definitely hope to be back!
