A First-Class Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I was told by a friend that this was the perfect property if you want to be on the lake, and he was understating it.

The view is magnificent, facing the setting sun, and the beach is a rare thing on Lake Winnipesaukee. It is the perfect place for children because the sandy beach goes out gradually which is ideal for swimming.

What stands out the most about the property in my mind is the family that owns it. They are the nicest people you could hope to meet when you rent property. Yes, they live next door, but that is a big plus because they treat you more like family than tenants. They truly enjoy people and would do anything they could to accommodate your needs.

We could not find anything they had not thought of in the unit to make living there comfortable. The kitchen is superbly equipped with more than enough dishes, glasses, etc., the beds are very comfortable, there is a washer and dryer as well as dishwasher.

As you sit in the living room and dining area and look out at the lake, you will not want to leave.

My first reaction upon entering the place was that they had a lot of pride in their property and took great care of it. The place is immaculate.

It is truly the Heaven of lake rental properties, and it is close to grocery shopping and all the great Lakes Region activities.

You can't stay here without wanting to come back!

Best Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The Chalet is just gorgeous.. It's so comfy and it's like a home away from home but better. The view is marvelous and you have your own private dock & beach. Even the days that were a bit gloomy you could still go outside and enjoy the scenery or even just sit on the deck and relax.

The owners are awesome. They make you feel right at home and are very generous and kind. We bragged to all our friends and family about this place and many have asked about going there. The next vacation time we get we will be definitely going back for atleast a week. We can't picture ourselves at any other location.

It was the best time we ever had and my 5 year old still talks about it and is dying to go back.

We miss it!!!

EXACTLY as described-gorgeous,private,clean

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation plans began with overwhelming internet shopping. We chose truth and integrity.By that I mean, everything we were told was true. The chalet is gorgeous, clean,equipped, and private,even though it is an add on to the owner 's property-that should not be a deterrant-if it is it's your loss. In fact, it is a security plus. The beach is clean, and views are stunning. The owner's are extremely helpful and friendly and you don't know they're there. We were able to do day trips and grateful to return to such peace, or chose to do nothing

and enjoy that as well. It is a place where you will definately wish to return to. It was sad to leave, but the memories are awesome.
