Wonderful Summer Vacation!!
Submitted: August 10, 2011

Arrived on Saturday afternoon as was pleasantly surprised to find this house was very large, had an open concept living area, very functional kitchen space and big windows to highlight beautiful Lake Winni. There was plenty of space for our party of seven. There are two bedrooms upstairs (King and 2 twins) and two bedrooms downstairs (2 Queens) as well as many couches and dinning tables. There is also a full bath in the upstairs bedroom (King) and an 1/2 bath near the kitchen, downstairs, there is a full bath as well as another kitchen (we used it as a wet bar as it had a refrigerator, and easy access to the back patio with amazing views of Lake). The home was surrounded by plush greens and we felt like we were on our very own island, which was wonderful. We enjoyed the fire pit, patio furniture, star glazing, and laughs each night so much that it felt like we were camping (Smores, yummy!), yet we had great sleeping quarters. We rented a plontoon boot from Bayside Inn (right down the street on RT 11D for the week, and we were so glad we did, as Lake Winni is so huge, and you don't even realize it until you are out on the water. Took a boat ride to Wolfeboro and enjoyed an afternoon shopping and dining, visited a few sand bars and played frisbee, and took a ride to other area attractions (Weirs drive-inn, Fun Spot, etc.) as well as climbed Mt. Major.
The only cons were: sprinkler system going off during the day and getting everything wet (wood, towels) and we had to stay off the lawn during this time, a small plumbing issue, and landscapers showing up on a Tuesday morning unannounced (Realtor helped solve both issues very quickly, and I suggested they post when the landscapers arrival day and time are so that their guests are surprised like we were). I would recommend this home to a friend or relative, as well as return again to enjoy this oasis in Alton Bay.
