Lovely cottage, great experience

  • 5 of 5

The cottage itself was spacious, plenty of room for our family of four plus the family that occasionally dropped in to visit. It was well stocked and adorably decorated. We loved the views of the lake and appreciated the use of kayaks while were there. We have only good things to say about the entire rental experience. We hope to have another opportunity to stay at the Paddy Shack.

Very nice house, friendly owners.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. Ellen and Pat are very nice and so are their dogs. Would have given it 5 stars but in the pics there was no mention of another house directly in front of this one blocking your view of the lake. Wasn't really an issue with us but worth mentioning. Also, just for anyone wondering about cellphone service, we have AT&T and had no problems with a signal and the house has free Wi-Fi !! We would definitely stay here again !!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Paddy Shack last week! We spent pretty much all day hanging out on the beach. We have two small children who loved jumping off the dock, playing on the swing set, and playing with all the beach toys. Pat and Ellen were so nice and accommodating. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed! We can't wait to come back next year!

Perfect spot to rest and relax

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week at the beautiful "Paddy Shack". The accomdations were second to none. It was a small trek to the beach, but the beach area was great for swimming, fishing, playing lawn games and hanging out. Kayaks and a canoe supplied by the McGoverns who were fantastic hosts.

Only reason for 4 vs 5 stars is the property itself is not directly on the water, however a 2 minute walk gets you there. Would highly recomend this property.

A fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Ellen & pat for offering The Paddy Shack as a vacation home for others..this was my second year at The Paddy Shack and it is a wonderful home! The cottage is immaculate and has all the amenities/comforts for a relaxing time. Once you spend time at the cottage, you will not want to leave!

The beach at the shared lake front is a great place for families to have fun! Though I spent time at the cottage as a retreat/respite time, it offers easy access to the ocean, the mountains, etc. Concord, NH is only 20 mins. away, Portsmouth 40 mins.

Stay, go, but have fun!

Relaxing and comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I am thankful to have spent two weeks (separate) at this lovely cottage. The cottage is immaculate and comfortable. Ellen and pat are so gracious and helpful! The beach/swimming area is wonderful though the short trek to & back is not for the faint of heart! I look forward to returning next summer.
