Great family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

I took my adult children away for a ski vacation. The house had space to go your own way, have a little privacy, but spacious in the common areas to participate in group activities. A great dining table - we like to eat together. And a great lower level with pool table. About 25 minutes from Gunstock for skiing. The view was gorgeous and we will most definitely look at going back during the summer!!

Great week at the lake! Can't wait for next year.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 13th year vacationing at a lake house. We are a group of 13 and have kids ranging from 9 to 18. Everyone thouroughly enjoyed our first year at this house and the location. We definitely want to return next year. The table in the dining room was large enough for all of us to eat together. The house was very spacious with enough beds for everyone. The house was clean and had ac throughout. The water was crystal clear. We rented a pontoon boat from Winnesquam Marina with a big enough motor to ski, tube and knee board. The sandbar area of the lake is awesome - a must do if you have a boat. Convenient to grocery stores and mini golf was a plus. David was very prompt in getting back to any questions and the rental process was easy. Thanks for sharing your home!!!

Great time staying

  • 5 of 5

We had I great time staying over. My family a few close friends and kids had so much fun hanging around the dock, deck and the sand area plus they did some swimming and fishing. Most of the time we was outside. Did camp fire, marshmallow and grilling.

Dave and Kris was great for letting us go over at 2pm instead of 4pm for check-in and the dock was ready for us to do some boating.

Great property in a nice quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had great stay at the lake house with family and friends. The rental process was very easy. The owners provided adequate instructions for check-in day and the deposit was returned in a timely manner as promised. The house had plenty of space. We loved the kitchen and great room for gathering and the basement rec room was perfect for the kids. The bathrooms were clean. The bedrooms were also clean and comfortable. We had a great vacation and look forward to returning next year.
