We've enjoyed our Lake House as a family for many years, and look forward to sharing it with you!

John or Diane (Owners) purchased this house in 1988

We were blessed as a family to be able to grow up on Winnipesaukee, and

have always appreciated its beauty and all the adventure and activity that

it has to offer. When you're at the Lake, you can experience a sense of peacefulness

and retreat that's hard to match.

Our home is meant for families to enjoy together. It's located toward the end of a private cul-de-sac road, is situated in a wonderful, family-oriented neighborhood and offers spectacular panoramic views of Lake Winnipesaukee. You'll feel as though you're away from it all yet still be only 5 minutes drive from all your commercial needs.

Wonderful, Relaxing and Super Fun - these are the words to describe our time that we spent at this amazing property. The property is set on a serene and absolutely picturesque location. The property has all the required necessities. Of course, the game room was the highlight. Kayaking was super cool too. The owner John was a professional with a friendly demeanor. Although, the water was a bit cold we had lots of fun. We have recommended this property to our friends and family and we look forward to go again.

Owner's Response: It was so nice to have you join us! We're thrilled that you found our home to have everything you needed during your October stay! The lake water can be a bit chilly for swimming in mid-October, but the fishing is always a hit and as you found, the kayaks that we provide for our guests are a great perk and can serve as an wonderful additional method of enjoying the lake. Frequently, guests are able to see or hear the loons call while they're out on the lake!

The Game Room is a favorite of ours as well. It offers something for everyone...a Pool Table, Foosball Table, Flat Screen TV with DVD player, lots of floor space to spread out, a Bar area, a Queen Sleeper Sofa and a Game or Puzzle Table. We especially appreciate the sliding doors that open to the lake side yard and the wall of large windows that make it possible to enjoy the incredible lake views even while you're in the house!

Thanks for sharing your experience~
We'll hope to see you again!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Alton! The house was perfect for our needs as my mother-in-law and father-in-law joined us for a few days so the downstairs bedroom and en suite bathroom allowed them to have their own space while my husband, myself and our 2 young kids had plenty of room to ourselves upstairs. The home was spacious, clean, bright and it was an added bonus to have the sunroom and the finished basement as another option for us to play and/or relax.

More than anything we enjoyed the views and the expansive yard. We spent hours outside with our 2 young sons (3 and 1) either playing ball, running around or just playing on a big blanket. My 3 year old loved the sand pit, the dock and still talks about making/enjoying his first s'more at the fire pit.

I especially want to thank John and Diane for their hospitality, their professionalism and their responsiveness. It was truly a pleasure to work with you. I would highly recommend this home for a family vacation!

The six of us had a great long weekend getting away from it all. The weather was a little funky but it's almost fall after all and we had a good time even so. The house was comfortable and there was plenty of room for all. We did a lot of fun trips nearby, including the Regatta in Wolfboro, the cruise on the M/S Mt. Washington and Castle in the Clouds....there was so much to do. But it was also nice to sit on the wonderful sunporch and enjoy the fantastic view. We had a blast toasting s'mores and marshmallows in the firepit. This rental is highly recommended for all.

Owner's Response: Anne, thanks for joining us! It was a funky weather weekend during your stay but the temperatures are back into the mid-70's and sunny again...Ahhhhh, New England weather! It sounds like you found plenty of things to keep you busy. We are so fortunate to live in an area where there's so much natural beauty and also so many destination options within a short drive of the lake house.

As you mentioned, the firepit is a perfect gathering spot for cooler Fall evenings together, making everyone feel cozy and relaxed. And the s' can't beat them! In the fall, there are also many beautiful local hikes to take as well as country fairs, wagon rides, corn mazes, apples to pick and music festivals to enjoy. The change of the seasons offers something different for each time of the year, and the fall foliage should be peaking in the next couple of weeks!

Thanks so much for trusting us with your stay and we'll hope to see you again!

Most relaxing vacation in years!

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had at your beautiful house.

From the moment we walked through the front door, to the moment we closed it behind us, our week was relaxing and comfortable. My mother "lived" on the deck, either with book in hand, or just meditating while looking at the most amazing views of the lake. It brought back lots of memories of her times spent up at her best friends' home on Newfound Lake. That, in and of itself, was worth every penny.

My sister did not live up to her expectations in the kitchen, but did whip up one or two delicous surprises. I don't think she has ever had a vacation quite like this, so she didn't realize that throwing something on the grill is just as tasty as a gourmet recipe, and leaves much more time for playing with her niece!

My husband and I easily switched into vacation mode, and made use of the deck, the porch, the couch, and the huge king-size bed to chill out, read, drink cocktails, and nap.

Our daughter probably had the most fun. She loved the bunk beds, the deck, the pool table, eating s'mores by the fire pit, and, of course, the lake. She either wanted to be swimming or playing pool (the eight-year old version), at all times.

My husband took us on a road trip down memory lane to all of the places he and his family used to go, when he use to spend every summer in Alton. We also hit Sawyers and the Kellerhaus for ice cream, and ate at a couple of places in Wolfeboro. My sister and daughter made the day trip to Story Land, as well.

The house was beautiful - clean and comfortable, with a well stocked kitchen. The air conditioners were a plus, for the warm afternoons. The bedrooms were good sized, with plenty of extra blankets and pillows.

Of course, John was great. Incredibly friendly, welcoming, helpful, and courteous.

So, from all of us to you, thank you for a wonderful week.

Sincerely, Susan

P.S.: "Tranquility Lane" says it all.
Owner's Response: Susan, it was such a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us! We're very happy that you were able to spend that time sharing old memories and creating new ones together~

As you mentioned, and as your Mom experienced, the deck, waterfront and front porches are all great places to escape and allow yourself to breathe deeply, count your blessings and enjoy a good book.

It's also nice to hear that your daughter enjoyed herself so much! The kids do seem to love the bunk beds and all the options in the Gameroom, as well as spending day after day in the crystal clear Lake Winnipesaukee water. And the Firepit is a wonderful place to come together at the end of the day!

What a great opportunity for your sister, the gourmet cook, to discover the joys of the gas grill and have an opportunity to get out of the kitchen and have more time to play outside with the family and enjoy the weather, natural beauty and lake breezes!

We'll hope to see you again!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

No need to look further for a perfect place to vacation on Lake W, especially with young children. The house is very child friendly (carpeting, not overly decorated, door seals off basement stairs, plenty of games, puzzles, etc., bunkbed). Our kids, ages 4 and 2, loved swimming in the lake, going in the kayaks with us, playing in the sandpit, making smores in the firepit, playing in the fairly large, level yard, and hanging out on the large rocks leading into the water. Bring water shoes as bottom of lake is mix of sand and rocks. Location is very convenient to supermarket and Wolfeboro (each minutes away), Storyland (hour away), as well as Boston. Owners a pleasure to deal with...easy and hassle-free in all respects. The description and pictures fairly represent the house. Window AC units and washer/dryer worked well. Nice, well-maintained grill for bbqs. Backyard faces west for fantastic sunsets over the lake. Close to neighbors, but not much activity - there is a sense of privacy. We highly recommend this property.
Owner's Response: Brad~ Thanks so much for trusting us with your stay! We know it was very important to you that our home be child friendly, and we're so happy that it worked well for you and your young family. Our intentions have always been to create a stress-free environment at our Lake keep it well maintained and tastefully decorated with family-friendly materials so that all ages can gather to relax and enjoy their time together, rather than needing to worry about breakage or their children's safety.

There is something for every age and interest at the Lake House. You can be outside enjoying yard games, swimming, napping in the hammock, fishing, playing in the sand or roasting marshmallows in the fire pit or you can be inside playing board games, billiards, watching movies together or getting lost in the view on the front porch. It sounds like you experienced all of this and more!

As you mentioned, we're located mid-way between the towns of Alton and Wolfeboro, both of which offer all the conveniences that guests might need during their stay. Our home is also located within an hour of all the Lakes Region, Seacoast and Mountain attractions. We hope to see your family again!
