Great family spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a place that could accommodate 10 or more people ranging in age from young teens to great-grandparents. This 4 BDRM, 3 BA home fit the bill perfectly! The finished basement with pool table and television provided a place for the younger group to hang out and enjoy active time while the older folks could relax and enjoy the views of the lake from the large living room. A short walk to the private beach and dock provided us with all the amenities for water activity we could ask for. With 6 kayaks, a rowing dinghy and a paddleboat, no one felt left out of the fun. After our time swimming and boating, we all gathered on the large sun deck where there is a 7 person hot tub, picnic tables and a gas grill built into the chimney. (We called it the "turbo grill"). A short drive into Alton Bay puts you right on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. We had a wonderful week here and definitely plan to return next year!

A Great Vacation Week

  • 5 of 5

I stumbled across this house on the Internet and I am very glad I did. I was looking for a spacious home for our yearly family reunion. The house and location exceeded all my expectations. It comfortably fit 8 of us with several beds that were not used. The house is set back from the road in a beautiful area of New Hampshire. The dining room comfortably fit all of us for dinner every night. The kitchen had all the tools to cook dinner with room for several chefs. The rear deck and hot tub were a great place to unwind. Sunset Lake is gorgeous. The walk to the lake through the woods was always beautiful and at the end you find Sunset Lake. The dock is large enough for at least 8 people to relax on. The lake is clean and quiet. We'd spend our nights relaxing outside looking at the stars and listening to the loons.

I can't say enough good things about the house and location. The house was spotless upon our arrival. Within a reasonable drive is Wolfsboro and a little further out is Woodstock, so there is plenty to do if you want to get out.

Dick was very accommodating and even called us mid week to see how we were. We would absolutely rent this beautiful house from Dick again. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get away and spend a very relaxing week.

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a wonderful week in July at Dick and Maureen's home. The house is accommodating in every sense of the word. Our college aged kids slept in the downstairs bunkroom, complete with TV and pool table while the adults claimed the first and second floor rooms. We've rented places previously that claim to sleep 8-10 and it's been tight. This is not the case with Dick and Maureen's home; there is plenty of room for that number. The kitchen is spacious - room for multiple cooks - and the living room is open and comfortable. The home was perfect for us.

Sunset Lake is very clean and peaceful. Many evenings you only hear the loons. The Flahertys' home is at the quietest end of an overall quiet lake. One of the nicest attributes of the home is that it's close to Alton Bay and Lake Winnepesaukee and the buzz of summer activity there, but Sunset Lake itself is secluded. So you can have the best of both worlds - big lake activities a few miles away when you want it but peaceful seclusion on Sunset Lake to return to.

We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home. The photos represented the property. Some of our favorite things - large, well equipped kitchen, big, sunny family room, and downstairs pool table/bunk bed area for the teenagers. The lake is crystal clear and on the shallow side so it is safe for kids and amazingly warm. We used the kayaks every day. We also loved the location - about 30 minutes to either Wolfeboro or Gilmanton. The Shaker Village is nearby as well. Dick was a great communicator and a pleasure do deal with. We highly recommend this property!!

Comfortable and happy week

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the house. We stayed for a Christmas before and had such a wonderful time, we decided to go back in the summer. The house has lots of amenities, and keeps both teenagers and younger children happy. The secluded cove is great for swimming and boating, although a little rocky. We loved using the hot tub in the evening and then dunking in the lake afterwards. We did not use the sauna during this visit because it was so warm out, but we used it every day during our winter visit. We also had the family dog with us, who enjoyed it as well. I recommend renting from Dick and Maureen - they keep it clean and are very helpful with questions and the rental process.

Peacful Week

  • 4 of 5

Had a really nice time with daughter and family, including family dog. The house is totally private making for a very peaceful week. The children and dog loved the lake and boats that were available.

The house is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay including filters for the coffee maker. We brought items like paper towels, napkins, foil, s & p, detergent, etc. Didn't need a thing. It all remained in the box and went home with us.

The only complaints would be that it would have been nice to have the cob webs and bugs cleaned from the windows and there could have been a little more weed eating around the house to eliminate some of the over growth. We did not use downstairs. The house, though, is lovely. It is very spacious and was comfortable for the six of us, It is decorated very nicely.

The owner was always available for help and recommendations about area.

Overall, everyone had a delightful time. Children (8 and 12) had plenty to keep them busy and going. Adults enjoyed the lake and boats, the hot tube, and even a bit of fishing.
