Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 10 stayed over the past weekend for the 39th Annual Meredith Rotary Fishing Derby held Feb.10 & 11. Well equipped/stocked kitchen, plenty of room for all to gather at kitchen table. Comfortable rooms, very clean and plenty of parking for 5 pick up trucks even with snow. We would have liked to spend time on the 3 season porch, but was a bit chilly to do so considering we rented during the 4th season. Very roomy! Am sure it is nice during the summer months. Will definitely look into renting again for 2019 Derby! Thanks Matt you were also very accommodating to us!

  • 5 of 5

Our Mother Daughter weekend (12 adults) at this property was a rousing success due to the quality of this property. We were blown away by the view and the property. Everything you could possibly need was there and the owner was very easy and eager to work with us. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this property.

Where do you live?

We would come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our three adult children, their spouses, and our three grandchildren aged 2 to 5. The house had plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was convenient, well stocked and clearly labelled. The master bedroom was spacious and comfortable with a king bed, private bathroom, and incredible lake view. All the bedrooms were well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed the large gated deck which was safe for the grandchildren and provided a wonderful place for all of us to eat, play, read, or just enjoy the view. We spent most of the week on the sandy beach but we enjoyed our time lounging on the dock and in the owner’s docked pontoon boat - both provided great views of the sunset. The two single kayaks got a lot of use. Everything we needed was available close by including groceries and bait. We rented a motorboat for a day at Winnesquam Marine for touring the lake, water skiing, and tubing. Just know that you have to get a NH Safe Boating License to rent a boat over 25 HP. The owner was responsive to all our needs and responded in a timely manner to all of our questions or requests. The only disappointment was that we ran out of days. We would love to come back.

This place was awesome!

  • 4 of 5

Overall this house is beautiful and an awesome place for a family get together. Having a marina on the lake was extremely convenient and there are lots of places to eat if you don't want to cook. The water is very clean, shallow with a sandy bottom so it's great for small children. The owner does a fantastic job of ensuring you have plenty of supplies to start with and is very accommodating. We would definitely stay there again.

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!
