About Larry & Kate Gomes

We built Two Lakes Lodge in 2000 after spending many years renting vacation homes in NH. The Lodge was designed to be our retirement home and we hope to be able to move there full-time during the next few years. In the meantime, we decided to rent the Lodge to help pay expenses. The Lodge is a great getaway for all 4 seasons, but our favorite season is winter, when we snowmobile right from the Lodge to destinations all over northern New Hampshire.

Larry & Kate Gomes purchased this house in 2000

Why Larry & Kate Gomes chose Great North Woods

The area around Two Lakes Lodge is unique because it was originally owned by a paper company and later was made part of the White Mountain National Forest. As a result, there are only 45 home sites in the area and that can never be expanded. This creates a small tight-knit community within the boundaries of the National Forest, with trails, wildlife and great views at your doorstep.

Beautiful lodge

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at Two Lakes Lodge this summer with our family of 11 and had a great time. The lodge is beautiful, clean and we loved the sound system in all the rooms. We streamed music in the rooms the children were sleeping in and they loved it! It also kept them from hearing the adults while play pool and cards in the evenings. The beach on South Pond was absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed using the kayaks, row boat & paddle boat. The house is well equipped with just about everything you would need. My husband has done carpentry and electrical his whole life and was very impressed with this lodge and all the extras that were put into it. The manual we were given had all the information we needed to know about the house and the area. We even had our security deposit back the week after we returned home. We would definitely rent again. Thank you Larry & Kate for a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful home, welcoming hosts, peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful time at the home of Larry and Kate. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. The house is fabulous, spotlessly clean and well supplied. Our group had a great time playing board games, using the gaming tables, eating, taking walks, and socializing. The home was warm and cozy and Larry and Kate were immediately available to answer any questions. The guide book about the property and surrounding area offers all you need to know to get out and explore. Was a terrific way for the family to welcome in 2016. Thank you to Larry and Kate for giving us the opportunity to share you home!

Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

Hey Larry and Kate!

Just wanted to say thanks for allowing us to stay at your beautiful lakefront oasis!!!!

From the moment we arrived we knew that we were some place very special!

With three boys there wasn’t a day when we weren’t busy doing something… and we did a heck of a lot! Mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, kayaking, Mount Washington, ziplining, pool, ping pong, Moose “hunting” and on and on…

The sights, smells, and sounds are incredible. Heather and I were sitting down at the lake one night looking at the stars and the silence was “deafening” LITERALLY… there was not a sound and as a result my ears were ringing!

Thanks again!

The best rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place, superior to most vacation houses we've been too. The beautiful house itself and the variety of activities made it a unique vacation experience for us. The owner is very nice, responsible and organized. Every detail mentioned about the place turns out to be true. All 8 of us spent a terrific, memorable weekend and would love to go back.
