Nice home in a quiet spot

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time here. The house was very clean and they had everything we needed already at the house. The neighbors are very friendly as you walk around the lake, and Sam the lakes dog is fun to play with.

Lovely home but not cleaned, convenient location to skiing

  • 3 of 5

We booked this listing for our Feb ski vacation. The location is beautiful. The home itself is comfortable, spacious, tastefully decorated and the kitchen is fully )stocked with everything you need for cooking a few simple meals.

However, we were charged a cleaning fee at the time of booking. Upon arrival, it did not look like the place had been vacuumed. There was dust and pet hair on the carpet. The bathroom vanity and mirror had not been wiped down. We found the vacuum cleaner but the dust cup was completely full and did not have any suction. We emptied it out and vacuumed both upstairs and down. It was not the first thing we wanted to do after a 5 hour drive.

We contacted the owner, Don. He said that it should have been cleaned and he would look into it. We asked for a refund of the cleaning fee. On the day of checkout, we contacted him again and he said he would refund us twenty percent of our original cleaning fee for the inconvenience. As of 3/17/17, we have not received this refund.

Overall, the property is beautiful and we enjoyed our stay but it could have been cleaned before we arrived as that is what we paid for.

Wonderful New Years vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making you home our home for New Years week. We had wonderful time and wonderful experience. You place was beautiful and very comfortable. The house was clean and nicely kept. It looked exactly like the pictures.We had everything we could need. It was very cozy and we all felt at home. The living room is the perfect place to hang out and is close to the kitchen so that the cooks can be part of what is going on. The family room downstairs was a perfect spot for kids to hang out and play. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. I would recommend this place to all.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for a long weekend in New England. Our only major goal for the trip was to find a pet-friendly rental near water. This house was exactly as pictured -- spacious, clean, and provided everything we needed in terms of kitchen supplies, linens, etc. The owners were easy to reach and got right back to me when I called on the 4th of July. The public access beach area is a short and easy walk from the house (maybe 1/2 mile?) along the paved road. Everyone in the area is incredibly friendly. There's a grocery store a short drive away. We had planned to venture out and explore the White Mountains area in New Hampshire, but to be honest, we were so comfortable in the Howard Pond area and at this rental house, we just stayed near the water and relaxed all weekend!
