Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed here for 3 nights. Couldn't ask for a better deal! Right on the water, beach access, a grill AND the use of 2 kayaks and a canoe. The hosts were wonderful. The apartment was adorable and the kitchen was fully equipt. I also forgot a couple toiletries and there was a basket in the bathroom of anything you may have forgotten.

The location is also near the marina where we rented a boat, and right by the mini-golf which we also did. I would absolutely reccomend this to anyone who wants a lakeside getaway. Cheaper than most hotels and you get a whole lot more. Thanks Dotty and Dave!

Lovely little respite

  • 5 of 5

Dottie and Dave were perfect hosts; the lake was beautiful and fascinating to watch to boats moored on the sandbar. The marina is close for those who want to rent kayaks or canoes. For us it was perfect just to relax and get-a-way. If you are a strong swimmer, the sandbar is about 150 yds off shore, but why would you want to as the little sandy beach is right there?

There is a little local lobster/clam "restaurant" very close, as is much of the retail that you might need.

The bed is comfortable, the kitchen well-appointed; after driving many, miles this place was perfect. (Dave's garden was impressive)

Note: there are a number of stairs to negotiate, and tall people probably would not be comfortable.

Dottie and Dave - thanks for being the perfect host and hostess!

Beautiful spot on the lake

  • 4 of 5

We had such a beautiful week on the lake. One rainy day we hit the outlets for some shopping. This is a great spot. Close to everything, fantastic Local Eatery in lacuna juts up the road, hiking all around. There is sand bar very close which means when the boats go by, they are slow and quiet. We spent a lot of time floating on the lake, thanks to the folates provided by Dottie. Afternoons relaxing in the sun or shade in the yard. Very kind hosts, we found some fresh veggies from the garden and some homemade cookies on our doorstep. Doesn't get much better than this beautiful peacful spot. The photos did a great job, you get what you see.

Nice mother-in-law apartment, but some features to be aware of

  • 3 of 5

This is a well-kept "garden-level" mother-in-law apartment (with a separate entrance) in a house in a residential neighborhood; the owners live upstairs. The owners are extremely nice, and we enjoyed our stay, but there are a few things travelers may want to note:

1. The ceiling for most of it is around 75", and the lintel on the way to the bedroom is below 72".

2. The view of the lake is as shown, and we had full use of the dock and also a canoe or two kayaks. But the lake is very shallow (just off the dock it's maybe 2' deep; I saw people standing at waist-level about halfway across the lake) and it's muddy on the bottom. I didn't find swimming to be practical, at least not near the dock. Maybe if you take a canoe out into a deeper part and swim off the canoe.

3. The owners are extremely nice and don't intrude, and the guests certainly have plenty of privacy *within* the apartment, but bear in mind that it is a mother-in-law apartment in a residential house.

We used it as a base for a hike in the White Mountains about an hour away. (We didn't get a chance to paddle because it rained on our second day.) There's a decent Mexican restaurant in town which they can direct you to, but most of the restaurants in the area are not distinguished, so we saved money by buying groceries and cooking most of our meals (we stayed two nights).

Owner's Response: In response to Ron F's review. He is correct about one ceiling. It is 75". We do, however, take exception with the comments about the lake. There is sandy access from our property , through the side gate. What Ron saw, "halfway across the lake", is a sandbar. Water level on the sandbar ranges from 3 to 4 feet depending on the dam. It's located about 150 yards from our dock and is a favorite spot for the local boaters. They are are able to leave their boats and stand waist deep or they can swim. Children love it! The depth between our dock and the sandbar ranges from 2 to 15 feet; and is able to support boating as evidenced by the number of boats at the neighborhood docks. Now, just a note about the restaurants in the area. There are many: fast food, national chains and a fine variety of locally owned and operated eateries; all of them good. We do provide a published restaurant guide and local maps.

Loved this vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our getaway to Lake Winisquam and this apartment was perfect. Tidy, well cared for and well equipped. The apartment has lots of homey touches. The views from the apartment and the dock were great. Swimming was wonderful as was paddling around in kayaks. Our hosts were very friendly and whenever we had a question, they were so helpful and we also had sufficient privacy. Next year we look forward to coming back and staying longer!
