Guestbook comments from the manager

Our week vacation was awesome! The home was more than I expected. Fully applianced kitchen, although the microwave was broken-we made do. The bedrooms are very large , along with the two baths. Nice open floor plan in the kitchen and living areas that open up to a large deck overlooking the lake. Fishing was great! Nice size perch, and bass! My husband caught a bass that he estimated to be 5 lbs - he does a lot of fishing too! The sunsets were beautiful, the morning lake with "fog" covering it -so peaceful. You've got to check out JJ Goodwins too! Great place to eat - 5 minutes away on Rte 28. The water is nice, but murky-my youngest like to snorkel but couldn't see under water. We definitely want to go again next summer!

A Lake House with Personality

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at this clean and spacious chalet. We were 4 adults and 2 teenagers.

The large deck is very inviting and comfortable with a peaceful view of the lake - a good place to relax, read, eat lunch, chat......loved not only hearing the loons but seeing them on the lake along with mallards and their baby ducklings.

In the kitchen, we found everything we needed when we cooked in some evenings. There is a good Hannaford Supermarket a short distance away in Alton that was very convenient.

We brought firewood and one evening made a fire in the pit near the lake while we watched the fire AND the fireflies lighting up in the dark.

We brought blow-up tubes to paddle around in the lake - did fly fishing from the dock and at a nice deep spot the beginning of the lake near the boat launch.

The 3 bedrooms on the lower, middle and upper levels were very private with 2 queens, 1 double and a large blow-up queen mattress. We didn't use the pull out sofa in the living room because we wanted the privacy of the bedrooms.

As a bonus, we were delighted to find a farm close by that had recently opened for blueberry picking.

One of the best houses

  • 4 of 5

We are a family with 3 kids. We loved the house, very clean and cozy. The location was perfect, and the lake view was amazing. The only downside is no boats or kayaks available, other than that it is one of top 10 houses in the area.

Great location! Quiet and off the beaten path!

  • 4 of 5

On a positive note, location was great, house was clean, and the kitchen well appointed. Only two criticisms. The whirlpool bath was barely useable and the house was drafty for a winter visit. I would recommend this house for a summer rental.

Very good

  • 5 of 5

House fits description, you have all necessaties for a stay. It is located close to a shopping and lake Winnipesauke. You need a license to operate a boat in NH. If you have a boat or a canoe, better bring it with you, so you can use it on a lake.
