Guestbook comments from the owner
Jon and Liz,
We had an amazing time in NH! As you'll see in our guest book entry,
almost everything we did was a recommendation you made. We didn't
note it in our entry but on the way home we did do the trail in
Holderness to the lookout over Squam Lake and went to lunch at Walters
Basin, as suggested. All wonderful. The house is so beautiful.
