Family Fun & Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean cottage, with excellent use of space, incredible lake view and caring owners. We have a 16- and 10-year-old, each had a guest at some point (friend or cousin aged 8-17), and we all want to come back to this cottage next year. The very long screened-in porch is flies or mosquitos and a nice view with a breeze. The owners tastefully decorated and thought out what might be needed (a corkscrew? Children's books? Baking sheet? Games? Nightlight? Yes, found them all here)! We brought our 20' I/O boat and traveled back and forth over to Lake Ossipee/Broad Bay/Leavitt Bay a few times. Danforth was excellent for kayaking and fishing. Son caught 11 fish in 1.5 hours off the dock. Others reeled in a few large bass (around 2lbs).

I just hope this review doesn't make you try to book our week!!

Perfect place for fishing, swimming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at this house for our vacation. My 5 year old son loved climbing up to and playing in the loft, as well as swimming and jumping off the floating dock. My husband had a great time fishing from the dock, and also in the rowboat. The screened in porch was great for reading, relaxing, enjoying meals, and listening to the loons on the lake, I spent most of my time there! The owner is very helpful and accommodating and answered questions related to the house very quickly. I would highly recommend this house, and we look forward to coming back in the future.

Best vacation spot ever. You won't want to leave.

  • 5 of 5

The lake house exceeded my expectations. It has everything you could need and more. I never had so much fun boating, canoeing and floating around on such a serene lake. Hiking trails in every direction. Spotting deer around every corner. Catching a 5.8 lb bass right off the dock, priceless. Definitely was vacation paradise. Can't wait for my next year's return back there.

Relaxing and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 19 and 17 year old children had a wonderful time. We swam/canoed/fished/relaxed/played games and shopped at North Conway! The property was clean and well maintained. David was eager to answer any inquiries and always answered promptly. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who wants to relax. The screened in porch was wonderful!!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This house really is the perfect place. The House is clean and comfortable. The owners are courteous and respond quickly. They really did a great job describing their home. The location of the property is ideal with rentals and a small store very close by. I can hardly describe the scenery other than saying it truly is spectacular!! I couldn't decide if I liked the screened in porch or the outside deck better! The views from both are outstanding any time of day. The private beach area is fantastic with sun all day. Watching the sunset was an added bonus. We had family stop by initially for an hour on their way to N. Conway-they stayed all day before reluctantly leaving. My young children and I all enjoyed fishing, swimming, canoeing and relaxing. They have already asked to go back again next year. I highly recommend staying here!!

Great location and the porch makes the house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation week on Danforth Pond. The home is neat and clean and perfect for a family of 4. We enjoyed our morning coffee overlooking the water and the dock and beach area were just right for our 6 and 4 year olds. The porch has enough room for visitors and we hosted our family in the area with space to spare. The owners were responsive and helpful. Hope to return and would recommend this rental!
