Open and comfy house! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our group lived our weekend get away! Wonderful views, clean and comfy house. Only draw back was that the fire pit was not lakeside or near our cabin.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura, I'm glad you enjoyed the house and the location. We certainly enjoyed having you. Yes, the fire pit is set back on the property. This is actually the result of a state requirement. The state requires that all camp fires be at least 75 feet from the edge of the lake. I think that is because they don't want embers drifting into the water, that is my guess anyway. The end result is we were required to locate it so that we met the requirements. We realize some property owners do not abide by that rule. We hope you have a great summer and look forward to having you as our guest in the future.

We stayed at Pollard Shores for an extended weekend in mid October. The hosts were attentive and friendly. The house was clean and well maintained. The location was perfect. Close to shopping, sight seeing and restaurants. The views were spectacular and we hit near the peak of Fall foliage, We will definitely stay here again.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at Pollard Shores for 14+ years. We left because our family grew too large for the cottages. Waukewan is a treasure lake in the middle of Merredith close to so many attractions . Although there is no reason to leave this property once you get there. Perfect lake front and accommodations. We will miss her but we have wonderful memories!

My family's Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We started going to Pollard Shores when our kids were 3 and 1 years old they are now 34 and 31 and we now have 3 grandchildren 8-- 6 and 5 and none of us have never missed a year. The day we get there we feel like we are at our 2nd home it is relaxing the lake is our back yard for one week and we spend as much time as possible swimming in the water relaxing at beach playing horse shoes or playing catch with our ball and glove . We have a gas grille we use every day for lunch and/or dinner the other cottages rented are the same family's for years and have become close friends of all of my family. It truly is the one week all year that we look forward to every year for 30 years now and many more years to come, and we all call Pollard Shores and Lake Waukewan our Heaven On Earth.

Summer vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Pollard Shores is a great spot in the heart of the Lakes Region. The property has a large flat lawn and is perfect for toddlers and young children. The houses we have stayed in are all well kept, clean and come with everything you need ! All your dishes, pots and pans, dishwasher, picnic tables, barbeque, washer and dryer. These homes are modern and its a peaceful setting. Our vacations have included the grand parents, children, grandchildren and some extended family. You know its a great place and you are creating lasting memories when your 2-1/2 year grand daughter says 'When are we going back to Waukewan?' It's a very clean lake and really quiet compared to the other lakes in this region. Two years ago a gentleman two doors away would catch rainbow trout and drop by and ask would you like one? So after three days of asking/accepting fish we had enough fish to put on the grill. The swimming area is sandy and child safe. You will not find a finer property to rent in the Lakes Region.

What a great week

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 3 small families for a total of 10 people (6 adults and 4 kids, aged 4-5) in unit SEAN. We had such a great trip, we have already booked the same week for 2016. Our only regret was that we didn't stay here years ago. I heard about this place about 8 years ago, but I never thought to stay here because it wasn't on Lake Winnepesaukee. I must say Lake Waukewan is absolutely beautiful, clean, and warm. My guess was the lake temp in mid August was 80 degrees. The owners, Bob and Sally were there to greet us on arrival and were present on property throughout our stay. They are both so nice and are always available if the need arises. Bob took our entire party on a sunset cruise around the lake on our last day, which was a prefect way to cap off an incredible week.

I will say there was plenty of room in unit SEAN for our party of 10. The stairs to the sleeping loft were at little tricky at first for the kids, because the stairs are steep and a little unorthodox, but once the kids figured out how to climb them, it was a piece of cake. Just be aware of this if your children are really young. Our youngest was 4 and she had no issue. There was a fire-pit that we used almost every night and we witnessed shooting stars on 3 or 4 nights! So much fun. This place is super convenient too. Hannafords and Dunkin Donuts is 7 minutes away, while my new favorite store, the Case N Keg is 5 minutes away, as are the shops at Mills Falls. The beach was superb with nice soft sand and the swim area was fairly shallow several years from the beach. It is a tad rocky, but not to the point were you need water shoes. We can't wait for our next visit in 2016 and we even hope to rent an additional unit because we had friends visit and they were so impressed that they want to rent another unit with us next year.
