Unwind, relax and enjoy your family!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week at the Mayotte's cottage. It was the perfect way to relax and unwind. The owners were very responsive to questions prior to our arrival. They were there to greet us once we arrived and were helpful in making suggestions on what to do in the area. The master bedroom is roomy and has a washer/dryer available for the renter's use. The two other bedrooms are very small, each with two twin beds, a closet and a dresser, but, seriously, who spends time in their room when on vacation? The living room was comfortable. The screened in porch was perfect for eating breakfast and dinner. The kitchen was well equipped with all of the essentials you need for the week. There is no air conditioning, but we never missed it since the lake provided a wonderful breeze for sleeping. There is a private dock/patio with a fire pit provided for the exclusive use of renters. Enjoying your morning coffee overlooking the lake never gets old! The owners provided "water toys" to help us enjoy the lake. In addition, Marie and Jerry took us for a 1 1/2 hour ride on their boat to show us the lake. The road that the cottage is on is a dead end dirt road. It contributed to the "cabin" feel and provided a very safe environment for our 2 year old grandson. There is a grocery store just two miles from the cottage. Moultonborough is the perfect central location for enjoying the area. It was an easy drive to Meredith, North Conway and Lake Squam. We hope to return again next summer.

Great lakeside cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We REALLY enjoyed our time in the cottage! It was a great week of relaxing family time while making fun memories! Marie and Gerry could not have been nicer or more helpful and answered all questions prior to arrival and while staying in the cottage. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed. It was great to have access to all the boats (kayak, sailboat, canoe) and we used them a lot during the week. The washer and dryer was also nice! The cottage was very clean. We enjoyed the fire pit on the patio overlooking the lake on several nights, and had many dinners in the sun porch using the grill. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family!

Get busy or relax at Lake Winni.

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts went out of their way to make us welcome. We chose this property because of the dock where we could keep our 21' Sailboat. Also, the location is sheltered from large waves that can be a problem at other locations on the big lake. Jerry took us in his boat to check out the nearby boat launch. This saved us a lot of time.

The cottage is charming and welcoming. Our first few days were cold and rainy. The electric fireplace took off the chill. We had a good view of the water from the couch and small table where we ate.

After the weather cleared, we enjoyed many things. For relaxing, I sat on the swing, which is really a converted ski lift chair. The we spent time sitting with family on the small patio, overlooking the private beach, with an expansive view of the lake.

For activities, the swimming was great. We tried the Versa board and sailed our boat.

Overall, what made this property good for us was the location. It is near the Long Island boat launch, and sheltered from rough water. The cottage is small but perfect for us as a party of 3.

Wonderful place to get away!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at "The Cottage" as we affectionately called it! We immediately felt relaxed and at home when we arrived. If you are looking for a place just to get away from it all for a bit, this place is it!

We used the kayaks, and paddleboards every morning and enjoyed the sunsets on the beach every night. Our 9 year old son even caught his first fish right off the dock. A truly memorable experience and a truly memorable place!

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our first family trip to Lake Winnipesaukee and our stay was AMAZING! The Mayottes are wonderful to work with. Very friendly, accommodating and so helpful with information from docking our boat to accessing the internet. The description was accurate and the place was clean and well maintained and stocked with all the kitchen items you could possibly need, including BBQ tools. The screened in porch was perfect place to eat for our grill nights. Easy access to water and sandy beach for swimming, borrowing the Versa board, Kayak and Canoe as well as the dock. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Perfect Cottage!

July 4th Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been meaning to write this review for months now because this vacation was wonderful and deserves a great review! We stayed up at the cottage for the week of July 4th this past summer. My husband and I stayed for a few days by ourselves before we had family and friends visit throughout the week. The Mayottes are very kind, helpful and friendly people who made our stay very comfortable, fun and welcoming! The cottage is gorgeous, very clean and spacious! It has all of the amenities you would ever need for a week on the lake! The beach front is beautiful and has a great swimming area, raft, beach and dock. Gerry took us on his boat for a lengthy ride around the lake which we enjoyed very much! The area is great, close to many restaurants and town center! Our parents loved the house and even plan on renting it themselves for a week next summer! Our friends had a great time fishing, using their canoes and the versa board! The Mayottes were very laid back, the beach was relaxing and quiet, and anything we needed they were there to provide. We can't wait to go back next year, and we highly recommend that if you are thinking about staying here, please do!
