clean, great location, something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on an extended family vacation and had a great time. We had a range of ages (kids 2-15) and there was something for everyone both inside and outside. We had great weather, but with ping pong, air hockey, etc in the basement I wasn't worried if it rained. The water front was great for the younger kids because it was shallow enough for them to swim out from the dock. During the week the lake was quiet so it was a true vacation. Angela always responded promptly to any questions we had. The sunsets over the lake were amazing and all the fishermen in the group had great luck. We'd love to stay here again.

Great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four rented the Clubhouse together with another family of four and we all had plenty of room. The location is truly on the water with an expansive back yard, huge deck and large parking lot. There is plenty to do if the weather is great (kayaking, sunbathing, swimming, basketball, walking, bocce etc..) OR if the weather isn't (fooseball, pingpong, air hockey, etc...). We had a fantastic vacation and I would highly recommend this property especially to families. Thank you for such a great week!

Big house with lots of fun activities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 and there was plenty of space for all of us. The location right on the water was perfect, and our group quickly split up to getting in the kayaks, some were playing horseshoes, others were having a dunk contest on the basketball court, etc. The campfire was perfectly located by the water and had plenty of chairs for all of us to sit around it and have smores. Our only wish was that we were there longer to enjoy all of the activities and the beautiful views and weather!

Perfect for a family reunion.

  • 4 of 5

We had 3 couples, 5 teenagers, and my 83 year old mother stay here for a weekend to attend a local wedding. It was just what we needed - plenty of room, clean bathrooms and a kitchen to cook. We were able to enjoy the many games provided and the kayaks for the lake. The weekend went by too fast - I wish we could have stayed longer.

Great house and property for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation at The Clubhouse this year. The house and property were clean and accurately described--we got exactly what we planned on (and then some!). Angela and Nate were very professional, yet approachable and easy to work with. Suncook Lake (both Upper and Lower) is super clean our "private" beach was such a treat! We kayaked all week, swam and even held our own lawn game olympics! Ladder ball, bocce, horseshoes and basketball kept all of us busy all week, when we weren't in the water or relaxing on the spacious deck. We visited Alton Bay and Concord for dinner a few nights. We highly recommend this rental, summer or winter, and look forward to next summer!

Beautful home, perfect location, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 4 children vacationed here for a week. The house was maintained beautifully inside and out. The stocked kitchen had everything that we needed and plenty of space to work. The set up of the house was very comfortable with plenty of views of the lake. The home's large yard was a perfect set up with a fire pit, horseshoes and others things to keep everyone entertained. Our family enjoyed fishing and exploring the lake with the provided kayaks and boat. The location was quiet and peaceful and a wonderful retreat for our family. The owners were very responsive with questions and we will definitely return for vacation.
