About Andrew Lidestri

Ogontz Arts event center is a privately owned facility on Ogontz lake supporting many different arts organizations. During our summer season, children, families, and professionals in different arts fields gather to create and educate in music, dance and theatre. Ogontz also owns two private properties (distanced from its camp operation) that it rents to help defer the costs of its arts programming. Renting this property from us supports this venture.

Andrew Lidestri purchased this house in 2005

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this cabin. It's our go to rental above all others in New Hampshire. Secluded, on the lake, comfortable, huge fireplace and trails all around the property to explore! Andrew is wonderful to work with. If you have a question or issue he responds promptly. The cabin is secluded, peaceful and still. We love sitting on the screened in porch with a cup of tea or a good book! The only negative thing I can say, and it certainly isn't a deal breaker with us, are the beds are uncomfortable. Other than that the cabin is perfect in every way. You won't be disappointed

Plenty of room and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Two small kids had a blast playing in all the space. The view was stunning. Andrew was prompt and easy to work with. Only complaint is the beds are old and not great on middle aged backs.

Secluded and quiet, needs a little upkeep, but overall was really nice.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, view of the lake and bald eagles was beautiful, which was better than expected. Nice fireplace so cozy for a cold weather stay. Plenty of room for a large family. Beds could use an upgrade especially for older family members. Nice kitchen well stocked and decorated, lots of interesting decorations. The downstairs bathroom is so nice!!! Upstairs not so great. Overall we had a wonderful stay, would like to go back in the summer months to enjoy the lake.

This is a beautifully situated, well furnished house. The view of the lake from the screened in porch is mesmerizing. The trails around the lake are fun, the walk to the lake is also very good. It was great to be able to let the kids wander everywhere without worrying about anything and they loved the freedom. I highly recommend this rental.

Secluded, Private, & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks at this property. Initial enquiries were answered swiftly and booking was straight forward. Later emails were slow to be answered, which resulted in telephone communication. Information provided before the trip was good and all that we needed. The description of the property was accurate. The property is big and has a lived in feel about it. It is well stocked with utensils and equipment. The fridge/freezer is big, and the barbeque outside is excellent. Whilst we were there we had regular sightings of Deer, red squirrel, grey squirrel, chipmunk, wild turkey, porcupine, rabbit. Lots of Blue Jay in the area with their varied songs, and Loons on the lake with their ghostly tunes. Unexpected surprises with a few visits from a pair of Humming Birds to the flowers on the porch, occasional glimmers from Fireflies, and numerous Turtles in the lake. Being away from any built up areas the view of the stars at night was fantastic. We were lucky to see several shooting stars during our stay. We had one problem with the Bathroom electricity on our first night but this was rectified the following morning and did not occur again. The property is within 30 minute drive of numerous places of interest and activities. Closest town with ample shops is 15 minutes. Everything we needed. Overall a good sized property which met our needs, in a great location. Only negative point was the bed in the master bedroom. Small and noisy. (Gary, Dawn, & George)
