Beautiful lakefront house

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed here with 5 adults and 4 children (ages 6,4,3, and 1). We had a great time! The house comfortably accommodated all of us. The kitchen is well equipped. The waterfront is great for young children (shallow for a ways out with a sandy bottom), and our kids really enjoyed playing in the water. The home does have some baby equipment if needed (pack n play, high chair, and booster seat with tray). The nearby state park has nice trails to walk around as well (it is a 1.3 mile walk or drive to the end of shore drive and then you can access the state park trails). Overall we loved our stay and would come back!

Private & beautiful lakefront - great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at Matt's house on Winnisquam! There were 6 adults and 4 children...we had plenty of room and enjoyed sitting on the deck and hanging out on the beach in the cove area. We rented a canoe and paddleboards from SuP NH which was a great way to enjoy the water. Since some of us traveled from California to this lake, we especially appreciated how well stocked the house was - notably the kitchen. We hope to come back again another summer! Thank you for sharing your home!!

This house was absolutely perfect for a stress free vacation. It has all the extra like towels, linens, washer/ dryer, cookware, everything. You really feel at home when your there. The pictures are beautiful but it doesn't do it justice, its even better than the pictures. Great for big families, there is plenty of room. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is considering staying here, its well worth it. The only downside is that we could have gone up earlier and stayed later but we found out too late.

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had! This house is amazing and the location is fantastic! There were 10 of us and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house is well stocked with all of your needs and the cabinets are labeled so things are easy to find. The owner is very easy to work with and responsive. We were able to check in early because the house was ready which was so helpful!! The only thing that could have been communicated better is the schedule for the recycling. It is picked up every other week and we didn't know if it was an on week or an off week. It was pouring rain on trash day so we lucked out that it was an on week so everything didn't get soaked and then not picked up.

We would come back to this house again and again if our vacation brings us back here. Definitely a relaxing and beautiful home!
