Come relax in beautiful Moultonborough and see why people think the lakes region of NH is one of the most beautiful places in the world. This home is on a quiet but easily accessible road with 100-feet of waterfront on Lake Winnipesaukee. This is a great family vacation site! On-site, there is a shared beach (shared only with the owner, and completely private Monday through Friday), a floating swim-dock, and a shady deck overlooking the beach and lake that’s for the exclusive use of the renter. The beach is sandy and child-friendly. Additionally, you will be able to dock up to a 30-foot-boat on our large, easily accessible, permanent dock. You’ll have the use of a canoe, kayak and sailboat; powerboat rentals are nearby. The cottage has a large, screened-in porch that’s perfect for lounging, dining or entertaining. The kitchen is fully applianced, including a gas grill just outside the door. WiFi and cable TV are included.
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.
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!
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!
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!
We had an absolutely wonderful time while staying at this cottage for our vacation week. Our two sons, 12 and 16 summed it up best by simply asking, “Can we come back here next year?” They both spent a lot of time swimming and enjoying the water toys the hosts have on a nice sandy beach. I am a novice boat owner and the hosts were most gracious helping me both launch and load my boat. The cottage has a nice screened in room where we enjoyed our dinner most nights and the living room was nice and comfy for watching movies at night. This was a peaceful fun filled vacation and I would recommend it to both couples and families.
I can't say enough good things about our time at the Lake! My boyfriend and I stayed at the cottage with his two children, ages 8 and 11. From the moment we pulled into the driveway we were overwhelmed! The lake is literally right in the backyard, which is a few short steps from the cottage. You walk first onto a fairly big deck, used exclusively by renters, and from there down onto a good sized sandy beach, occasionally shared by the homeowners, who are fantastic people. They were so welcoming and kind from the first day, and even offered to take the kids out on a boatride around the lake, which they LOVED! During the week, the property is pretty quiet, as the owners live/work elsewhere, which made for some very relaxing days catching some rays on the dock! They allowed us use of some of their boating equipment, including a canoe, versaboard, and sailboat- so much fun! The four of us were able to explore the lake together, which was great. The area of Moultonborough where the property is located is about 20-25 minutes away from Meredith, where there is a lot more shopping and action. BUT, I prefer the quiet almost country feel of Moultonborough to anything else- plus there is a small store called Jojo's right down the street for anything you may need to pick up without wanting to drive very far. Any activities one would want to do with kids are pretty close by- you never have to drive more than 20-45 minutes to have a fun filled afternoon, which we loved about the vacation. And at the end of the day we're right back at the most beautiful, serene spot one could ask for! We were able to set up a badminton net in the yard; we grilled almost every night and ate dinner in the huge open porch attached to the cottage. The master bedroom is amazing- waking up to waterviews is pretty tough to beat. The owners allowed us use of their firepit for our smores night- such a great time! All in all, I hope to come back to this cottage every summer- it really exceeded our expectations, to say the least! It doesn't hurt that the owners go out of their way to make your vacation enjoyable!
Located in the heart of the beautiful lakes region of NH, your stay at this cozy waterfront cottage means you'll have easy access to all the area has to offer. Enjoy swimming, boating, or hanging out on the beach; while still being an easy drive to attractions such as Castle in the Clouds, concerts at Meadowbrook, the M/S Mount Washington and many, many more. NH's White Mountains are close by as well. It's a vacationer's paradise!
