Beautiful home, open and airy, modern, with every amenity. This was truly the nicest home we have rented in many years. Comfortable beds and rooms. A great expanse of porch from which we saw bald eagles and deer meandering across the dirt road. The waterfront area was small but adequate and the lake is very clean. Our 11 and 6 year olds particularly loved the water trampoline. A fire pit at the beach allowed nightly fires with s'mores. The owner was great about promptly answering our questions prior to our stay. We loved blueberry picking nearby.
Wow - where to start?? We had an absolutely wonderful week at this property. The owner has gone to great lengths to provide everything anyone could possibly want in a lakefront vacation property, and was very helpful in advance, answering my many questions. We had previously rented beach houses in NC, but never in this "neck of the woods". The design of the home and the decor was flawless. Brand new appliances, new dock, bunco-raft, kayaks, all the amenities...the pictures don't do it justice. Gorgeous views, sunsets, lush wooded surroundings on a quiet picturesque lake (do bring the bug spray-damp this year!). We especially enjoyed hearing loons. Didn't have to haul bedding, linens, beach towels, pots/pans, small appliances, games, puzzles ...everything is already there! Even a full cupboard of spices! Our group made good use of the pool/ping pong room in the basement, the great sound system, the reading room, the expansive front porch, gas grill out back, and roasted marshmallows down by the dock. A newly built home and a newly renovated cabin (side by side) provided housing for our family of 9. We ate dinner at Poor People's Pub in Sanbornville, our first night; food and service were great! Lots to do in the Lakes region;and within an hours' drive the Atlantic Ocean, Maine, Lake Winnepesaukee, hiking, jet-skiing, sight-seeing, whale watching, antiquing and more. We did get tired of driving...too much to explore in one short week! A very relaxing environment...something for everyone! Would definitely recommend it for families. It was our first trip to New Hampshire, and probably not our last!
Communications with the owner, Cinny, beforehand were excellent. Receipts were always provided, and the contract was straightforward. Directions were provided, but we used our GPS. In retrospect, the directions provided were easier to follow.
When we reached our destination, we were thrilled with the beauty. The house itself is stunning, and the attached camp is impressive as well. The only thing that gave us pause was that you have to cross a small road to get to the beach area. It turned out that this wasn't a problem, at all. Very little traffic, and the view from the deck is uninterrupted. The beach area has a very nice grassy area, great for outdoor games, and a picnic table provided.
It would be impossible to describe how beautiful the inside of the house is. My father does carpentry, and was so impressed with the quality of the work in the house. The rooms were large, and the extremely comfortable. I felt like the owners spared no expense with the furnishings. Everything from the appliances to the dishware to the bedding was first class.
The house is somewhat removed from the beaten path, which worked for us! It took about 10 minutes to get to the local stores, about 20 minutes to major shopping. North Conway is about an hour away, as is Portland.
Five adults and 2 children had plenty of room. We could have easly accommodated 4 more people. We have a 5 year old, as well as a 14 year old. The swimming was good for both ages. My youngest could wade out along the sandy bottom, and my 14 year old could jump off the dock, or the provided bongo raft. The basement pool/ ping pong table provided entertainment during rainy days.
I would reccommend this house for families looking to get away from it all. I have already made inquiries about renting again next year!
A 9% NH room and meals tax will be added to the rental price.
