Absolutely fantastic vacation!
I can't say enough good things about our time at the Lake! My boyfriend and I stayed at the cottage with his two children, ages 8 and 11. From the moment we pulled into the driveway we were overwhelmed! The lake is literally right in the backyard, which is a few short steps from the cottage. You walk first onto a fairly big deck, used exclusively by renters, and from there down onto a good sized sandy beach, occasionally shared by the homeowners, who are fantastic people. They were so welcoming and kind from the first day, and even offered to take the kids out on a boatride around the lake, which they LOVED! During the week, the property is pretty quiet, as the owners live/work elsewhere, which made for some very relaxing days catching some rays on the dock! They allowed us use of some of their boating equipment, including a canoe, versaboard, and sailboat- so much fun! The four of us were able to explore the lake together, which was great. The area of Moultonborough where the property is located is about 20-25 minutes away from Meredith, where there is a lot more shopping and action. BUT, I prefer the quiet almost country feel of Moultonborough to anything else- plus there is a small store called Jojo's right down the street for anything you may need to pick up without wanting to drive very far. Any activities one would want to do with kids are pretty close by- you never have to drive more than 20-45 minutes to have a fun filled afternoon, which we loved about the vacation. And at the end of the day we're right back at the most beautiful, serene spot one could ask for! We were able to set up a badminton net in the yard; we grilled almost every night and ate dinner in the huge open porch attached to the cottage. The master bedroom is amazing- waking up to waterviews is pretty tough to beat. The owners allowed us use of their firepit for our smores night- such a great time! All in all, I hope to come back to this cottage every summer- it really exceeded our expectations, to say the least! It doesn't hurt that the owners go out of their way to make your vacation enjoyable!
