Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We got married at Camp Morgan Lodge and spent the week using this house as our base camp. The main room is beautiful and a great place to relax with the whole family. The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed and fun to cook in.

The beach is beautiful and my (new) husband was able to take the kayak out a few times. It was beautiful and very relaxing! Thanks so much for a great vacation.

Great place - private waterfront area

  • 4 of 5

Alan's place was a great way for our family to spend the 4th of July. The private waterfront was awesome. It's a 5 minute walk from the house, or a quick drive (30 seconds) down a private driveway to the water.

We did have a little issue checking in. Our check in time said 10am on HomeAway but the previous renters check out time said 12pm. So, we showed up to an occupied unit. It all got worked out in the end, but I'd suggest double checking with Alan to confirm check-in/check-out times before arriving.

Beautiful, comfortable home with bonus woodland paths and easy lake access

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is so much larger than we expected and with a fully supplied kitchen. We stopped by the farmers market for some fresh breads and meats on Saturday and found all the spices and kitchen wares we needed in the cabin. The family room was comfortable for all. The yard and the woodland behind the house were ideal for the dogs to play. We dropped our kayaks off at the private beach on the lake when we arrived and spent a lot of time on or by the water thereafter. The only caveat is to bring bug spray. Depending on the time of year you will need it if you spent a lot of time outdoors. But this is NH and that may go without saying for some folks. Overall a wonderful, relaxing escape from reality for a few days.

Spacious Beach and Historic Home

  • 4 of 5

This property was available on short notice (just a couple weeks) before labor day.

Interpersonal: Communication between the owner/property manager was great, speedy and informative. We had trouble finding it at first and received a quick call back to help locate the rental.

Beach: On google Earth there looks like a long road to the waterfront. It's very walkable with small children (ages 10-13). You can easily drive to the beach as well. It's like a very long, long driveway. Kind of fun and adds to the seclusion. Fantastic for dogs. I wished I had the kids bikes but the road can be a bit steep so perhaps it was for the best. The waterfront is spacious. Plenty of chairs. A canoe seating 3 was provided which was fantastic. Also, the kids couldn't get enough of the paddle boat that seats 4. Ages 10 to 13 were totally fine to take it out on their own. The bottom of the pond/lake is sandy. It was chilly so we didn't get much swimming time. Kids preferred to use water toys. I would add that although the water is clean it is quick mucky and rocky. I don't mean pebbly either. Be prepared to not touch the bottom. Areas of the pond are very shallow (knee deep) in the middle of the pond. Not a big deal for water toys. If you are looking for a swimming lake and are used to seeing the bottom of the pond this might not be the best choice for you. Great fire pit. Sun and shade.

House: It's historic and modern all at the same time. When you first walk in it's like stepping back in time. Handcrafted everything. So be prepared for a rustic look and feel. We slept 8 comfortably. There are 3 queen beds and then a queen mattress that can be put on the floor in one of the upstairs rooms. Beds were really comfortable. Plenty of blankets and sheets and towels. Wifi is very slow and spotty but if you are vacationing then you should be concentrated on vacationing anyway so I see it as a plus. Kitchen well stocked with everything you need, large fridge and dishwasher. Note that showering and washing your hands could cause a problem. It was a little unexpected but wasn't a big deal once we figured it out. Really only one water user at a time.

Surrounding Area: there is a general store where you can get a quick bite to eat. The store selection is similar to what you find at a large gas station mart. Plan ahead for short trips. Going to the store is a bit of a pain. Ate in Hillsboro at pizza place that was very good.
