Stayed at this perfect getaway for the holiday week and had a wonderful time. Loved the peace and quiet. First time staying at Manning Lake and loved how quiet the lake was at night. Would love to come back!!

My family and I stayed at this quaint and private cottage and cannot say enough wonderful things about it! The lake is amazingly clean and beautiful! We enjoyed swimming, fishing, kayaking and paddle boating while taking in the splendid views of the mountains and watching the loons swim nearby. We felt safe in the area while walking our dog and bike riding. The owners are equally wonderful and we felt a genuine welcome to their home. We cannot wait to return in the near future and are grateful for the opportunity to have spent time at this little hidden gem of a cottage.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Me and my two children (ages 5 & 7) stayed here in July 2010 while my husband was deployed to Afghanistan. The Youssef's were so accomodating & kind. The cottage is absolutely adorable, cozy and comfortable, we walked in on Saturday and immediately felt at home.

Susan allowed for me to bring my dog so I felt safer without my husband, every morning we walked up and down the quiet dirt road and just enjoyed the quiet and scenery.

The private beach is a huge plus for the kids. It was clean and well maintained. The weather that week was very hot and perfect, so we all spent all day in the lake swimming.

It is now December and the kids are still talking about the week at the cottage and what a great time we had.

We will definetly be back summer 2011, with my husband this time :)

Our family was here August 2010. We immediately felt a "home away from home" feeling. Very quiet and relaxing with 2 loons singing in the morning and early evening. Great sunrise and sunsets. Perfect for our grandchildren with a nice private beach area. The decks were perfect for morning coffee and meals. We highly recommend this place. Owners were extremely helpful and the Tanger Outlets in Tilton is less than 1/2 hour away for a rainy day! A big thank you to the Youssefs!

Siimply Georgous!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last summer at the cottage. It was just beautiful. The view and just having your own piece of beach is fantastic. I would highly recommend this cottage to everyone. The round second deck is an added bonus overlooking the water. The cottage is cozy, clean and neat. The pictures are very accurate. The owners are the nicest people, very friendly and accommodating. We even had our own pet ducks for the week! Just a short drive from Boston, 2 hours too! I have been looking forward to coming back since the day I got back home last year!
