A little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the cottage for a little family vacation, joined at various times by our adult children and two grand kids. What a wonderful experience! Coffee on the deck in the morning and cocktails in the afternoon gazing out at the beautiful lake, meals on the screened in porch, evenings around the fire pit at the water's edge, great swimming steps from the cottage, kayaking, taking the little ones in the paddleboat and rowboat, shopping and restaurants close by. The cottage was immaculate! The owners obviously take a lot of pride in their property and make sure you have everything you need for a family vacation. We were certainly very comfortable and satisfied with this rental experience.

A Little piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Just spend a delightful week at his lovely lakefront cottage. Clean, comfortable and decorated with taste. Everything that you could have asked for in a vacation rental. Kayaks, paddleboat, life jackets, fishing poles, games, coolers, unbelievable time and thought put in to this property. My grandchildren loved the sandy beach area, with a lake that had a gradual depth entry making it so safe for the little ones. One thing that I would mention is the loft area which is delightful (and a secret hideaway in the kids minds) :) has a ladder up to it that is straight up without handpulls at the top which was cumbersome to climb. Grocery store is right up the road, but we drove to Hannafords, about 10min down Rt 16S for better pricing and selection. Golf course right next to property, very nice fire pit and chairs at lakefront But would rent this home again anytime! Thank you Chris and Steve for the opportunity to enjoy your wonderful home!

Ideal spot, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a great stay at this rental property. It's clean , comfortable and well organized. What I liked the most was it's privacy. It's one of the last houses on a quiet dirt road so there were no worries about my boys riding bikes or playing ball out front. All of the neighbors wave as you go by. Everyone seemed like they were simply enjoying relaxing. We spent July 4th watching local fireworks all around the lake and the boats lit up with red white and blue, which was awesome. It's a short drive to Winnipesaukee and North Conway so if you like exploring busy areas with mini golf, shops, restaurants, etc.,, but prefer a quiet rental without the traffic and crowds, this is an ideal location. The lake is so clean and sandy, so most of the day we would swim and float. We grilled and ate great meals on the screened in porch. I would highly recommend this rental.

I'd give it 10 stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our first vacation together in this home on the water. The beach is right out the front door, but you don't even have to go off the front deck to enjoy this peaceful setting with an amazing view. The home was clean and well appointed and very easy to take care of even when we were a full 8 people. We were 3 generations and each one had plenty to do, but family time on the beach or around the fire in the evening was just wonderful.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most fantastic and relaxing stay at this cottage. The Owners have provided everything you could possible need or want for a relaxing stress free week. It was truly amazing to wake up everyday to the sights and sounds of Lake Ossipee. It is a vacation that we intend to repeat every year.

This adorable cottage was spotless & the owners have thought of & left everything at their guest's fingertips. The lake was just right for our famiy of fours needs(mom, dad, boys 7 & 10). The boys had a blast swimming all day & we were able to relax knowing that this clear, clean, sandy lake has a very gradual drop off. Sitting and eating meals in the screened porch while looking out at beautiful Lake Ossipee is quintessential New Hampshire (and we live in We took day trips to the Conway Scenic RR, outlets in North Conway (tax free), & Lost River Caves (a ride, but well worth it). We will be returning next summer!!
