Lake Winnisquam Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1-3/4 Bath, 1st Floor 2-Twins, 2nd Floor Q-Sleep Comfort,3rd 2-Twins

This is a definate one of a kind property; the house is fashioned after a Dutch Windmill and was named Dutchland when it was built in 1910, the Windmill paddles were lost in the Hurricane of 1938. This property has been in our family since 1963.

We take much pride in maintaning this property. We do upgrades and improvements every year. This year we redecked and rerailed the 2 level deck to the water and also added solar lights. There is now power on the deck if you want to hook up a radio/tv/dvd.

Our family hopes you will come and relax and enjoy a carefree stay. We provide linens and towels. Also a BBQ and propane.

The boat dock is shared.

For rainy days we provide, books, games and movies. On sunny days enjoy a game of lawn croquet and water fun toys, like floats and noodles. We hope to see you soon. Sorry no Pets.

Must be 27 years or older to rent this property. Sorry no Pets

The Windmill is awesome

The Windmill is like your home away from home with amazing views of Lake Winnisquam. The Windmill is clean and ready to enjoy.The Leighton's have thought of everything you would need whether you wanted to stay in or explore the region. The property is very private with beautiful landscaping. You can enjoy your morning coffee in the sunroom or on the dock listening to the loons or watching the boats go by.The beach is sandy and shallow for the perfect leisurely afternoon of water sports. I would highly recommend the Windmill as the perfect getaway.

In a word . . . FABULOUS!

The Windmill was sparkling clean, roomy, yet cozy and oh so comfortable. It was the perfect place to spend a relaxing early summer vacation and trip to Bike Week.

The property is a bit out of the way and still so close to so many attractions...shopping, dining, golf and hiking and of course, all the lake has to offer.

We spent early mornings drinking our coffee on the dock listening to the loons sing their beautiful songs. Evenings we were back on the dock for a cold drink and feeding the ducks. The large yard was open enough for a game of croquet or playing catch, yet it offered complete privacy.

It's obvious by the condition of The Windmill and the beautiful gardens and landscaping that Sandy and Earl take great pride in their property. We are already planning our next stay.

A super value considering all that is offered!

This was my (our) first stay at the Windmill and we are already making plans to come back. If you are reading this review then you are considering renting this wonderful little cottage yourself. Do not hesitate! You will NOT be disappointed. I grew up in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and come back "home" as often as I can. We've stayed in other cottages on Lake Winnisquam and I feel that this cottage and this lake are a perfect match.

The cottage has been around for 70+ years and has the perfect balance of old time character and modern convience. It is in wonderful condition....clean, comfortable and cozy. And unlike some lake cottages that sit side-by-side, the Windmill sits alone on a large lot so you have plenty of privacy for relaxation.

Also, as one reviewer mentioned, the cottage is well equipped with everything from salt and pepper shakers to games for the kids. Everything to make your stay easy and relaxing.

So....why are you still reading? Send that email before the week you want gets taken by someone else! :-)

My family and I (husband, 2 children) rented the Windmill for 1 full week in July. Everything was wonderful. The living room area was spacious for family fun time (it rained a lot during the week so this was especially appreciated), the bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked (think measuring cup and rolling pin!) and the property was just plain beautiful; from the lush lawn, to the gorgeous flowers, to the babbling brook running through the property to the breath-taking view of Lake Winnisquam (my favorite part!). In dealing with the owners, Sandy and Earl, everything was right from the start. What warm, kind folks. It was a pleasure to stay at their "camp." We have discussed making the Windmill a regular part of our summers and can't wait for next year!
