Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome time. The view was great and the cabin was perfect. We did a lot of canoeing and fishing! Not to mention the weather wad beautiful. There were so many places right up the road for us to take our dog. I think she had more fun than we did! Just kidding ... :) Thank you for your hospitality and your help with finding things to do.

The house was well appointed, clean, and perfect for a large family. We had a coffee maker go out and within hours a new one was in place. Frank and Margaret made sure everything was perfect. There were so many lovely decorating touches that gave the place its charm. We loved the screend in porch for relaxing with coffee in the morning, eating, or a place for children to play when raining. Convenient to hiking, biking, farm stands, We all loved it! Many thanks to great owners.

We love it here!

Frank and Margaret are the most gracious hosts. Their house is well maintained, comfortable and stocked with pots, pans, spices, linens and towels. We loved the very short walking distance to the lake where we would go kayaking and fishing. Frank showed Steve all the hot spots for fishing and Steve caught a fish everyday. The loons were amazing and the vista spectacular. Our dog loved it here too! So much to do here and not enough time. Thank you so much!!!!

We enjoyed the area, very peaceful and quiet. Only "bad" thing was no internet or cable/tv connection. It was Hockey playoffs the week we were there!!!

Wonderful vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome week on Kimball Lake. The house was clean and well stocked. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed being able to kayak and canoe on the lake. Our teens enjoyed fishing in the evenings. They each were able to catch at least one large fish. We were very fascinated by the loons. The hiking in the area was awesome and our son really enjoyed mountain biking. So many things to do, so little time!

Kuiet on Kimball

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and four of our children stayed in this house over an extended Columbus Day weekend this past October. We found that this house was a very short commute to the Fryeburg Fair, through back roads, and were very pleased with the location. We attended the fair for 2 days, from sun-up till past sun-down and were tired, chilled and exhausted upon our arrival back to Kimball Lake. The house was a perfect resting place for us and I could best describe the house as "cozy, quiet, clean and comfortable." We were very happy to use the wood stove in the family room as we caught up on some old movies. All of us had great night sleeps! The kitchen was well stocked and we definitely saved some money by having a few meals here. Margaret and Frank were very accomodating and although we didn't really have time to enjoy the lake, they had plenty of fun "lake toys" on hand.

Thanks Margaret and Frank. The kids loved the fair and would very much like to return to try the pig scramble! Hopefully, we'll return soon.

Nice New Hampshire getaway

  • 4 of 5

We spent September 10-13, 2009 here and had a fantastic time. The house was clean and well stocked. It didn't phase us in the least that the TV didn't work, we brought plenty of DVD's. The house is very close to the lake which you can clearly see from the screened in porch and deck. We went with another family, in total 4 adults, 3 boys ages 5 and under, and 3 dogs. The guys had a great time fishing on the lake with the kids, we had great walks with the dogs and the boys couldn't get enough of Storyland which was a 25 minute drive away. Frank and Margaret we very pleasant and gave us great ideas of which walks to take the dogs on and other places to see. Overall, we had an excellent weekend and didn't want to leave.
