Our stay was so fantastic! The cottage was adorable, the views were amazing, and the town was so cute! Everything was neat, clean, and matched the description.
Fred and Jan were very helpful, offered suggestions for excursions, and allowed us use of their lakefront deck.
What a lovely weekend trip. We will hopefully be back next year!
We try to supply most anything you would need for an enjoyable stay. We love to share our beautiful lakefront property and are pleased when we get a positive review!
Alton Bay guest house
Enjoyed our stay at the guest house, was exactly as detailed. Was a little bit of a drag to go outside to go upstairs, but all in all a picturesque cabin and lake. The hosts were very interested in making our stay wonderful. Would consider going back.
We are sorry that you considered the outside stairs such a disadvantage. We try to be very honest and send a description of the Guesthouse to all prospective renters (including the fact that there is an outside stairway to save valuable interior space). The staircase is quite private as it is not visible to anyone in our main residence and fairly hidden from the neighbors!
Jan and Fred
This was truly the best stay we had during our tour of New England. The "cottage" is very clean, and very comfortably furnished, with a bedroom and bathroom downstairs and a well equipped kitchen diner/sitting room upstairs.This is reached via the outside staircase. Jan does leave umbrellas in the cottage in case of inclement weather. In addition there is room for an outside meal on the upper level plus a grill for outdoor cooking. Jan and Fred were most welcoming and helpful. Use of their waterfront was a real privilege. We enjoyed an evening drink or breakfast coffee, watched beautiful sunsets and at one moment counted four loons on the lake. It's marvellous - we shall remember it for a long time.

Wonderful Relaxing getaway
We stayed for 3 nights after our wedding and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The Octagon has such charm and personality to go along with the lake that it was the exact Rest and Relaxation we needed.
One of our favorite activities turned out to be stargazing on the dock at night listing to the water and the peepers. My wife and I both saw some shooting stars so it was quite fun.
We absolutely would stay again next time we need a getaway.
We are pleased that you enjoyed our special place on Sunset Lake. The deck is a great place to stargaze because there is so little light pollution! Please come back and celebrate your first anniversary next year!!
Cozy and relaxing
The octagon was the perfect place to kick back and relax for a few days! Sitting on the dock, reading a book and taking a dip in the lake whenever we wanted was just what we needed! The location is perfect as well, the lake is quiet but a short drive away and you are at restaurants, grocery stores and activities! It was clean and just the right size for two people to fit comfortably. We even made breakfast every morning! We will definitely be coming back!!
We are always pleased when a renter enjoys the Guesthouse with it's amenities. We try to provide everything that they would need for a great stay!
Little Slice of Heaven
My partner and I had a marvelous week at Sunset Lake. The setting is sublime - quiet lake, clear water for swimming and canoeing, gorgeous sunsets and loons at night. This is a nature lover's dream. Jan and Fred were the best hosts, but we also had complete privacy whenever we wanted it.
We had all of our breakfasts and many of our dinners on the dock, but the octagonal guest house was a cozy setting as well. It's just that nothing could beat the beauty of the continuously changing light on the water. We had a restful week, but also enjoyed nearby outings around Lake Winnepesaukee for dinners, golf, and a visit to the Loon Center.
This is the perfect spot to rejuvenate and enjoy Mother Nature. We will definitely be going back!
We are always gratified when our renters have a good stay; our lake is a well kept secret with no public access so it remains quiet and pristine!
Located in the heart of the Lakes Region, and conveniently located near Wolfeboro, Meredith and Lake Winnipesaukee almost weekly craft fairs, band concerts in three local communities, and music festivals are all available. Hiking is nearby at Mt Major (local) or you are within an hours drive to the White Mountain National Forest hiking trails. If you prefer the ocean, we are within an hour of the NH seacoast or Maine's picturesque rocky coast. Attractions in the White Mountains such as Storyland and Mount Washington are within 2 hours.
