Next best thing to heaven
The accommodations were superb. The apartment had everything we needed for relaxing and cooking - not many places have a good collection of seasonings for cooking, but they did here. Nancy and Dave couldn’t have been nicer in all our communications. The dock, the Great Pond and the proximity to a lot of neat places, especially for history lovers, was perfect. The fishing rods helped me remember my days as a kid on Lake Sunapee and the use of the canoe/kayak was great. Their dog, Beckett, was a really sweetie. He hung out with us down by the water in the rain. Even the rain was nice. I hope to return here again when we can stay longer.
Wonderful Lakeside Stay
I So Enjoyed:
- Nancy's help with possible places to eat
- touring the lake with Dan and Nancy in their electric boat the 1st night I was there
- seeing a loon or woodpeckers on my early morning kayak outings
- 1 morning being woken up with the sound of 2 owls communicating with each other
Below are two things that I got use to. All the other blessings out weigh these things. I plan to visit next year hoping to make time for enjoying the fire pit.
The rental is on the bottom floor of Dan and Nancy's home. Their kitchen is above and I could hear them walking around.
I found that my Version cell was more reliable when I step outside to answers calls and send texts that included pictures.
Delightful, relaxing location right on the lake.
My experience was even better than I imagined. Beautiful studio with wonderful hosts.
Kingston lake house
Lovely lower level studio apartment on a quiet lake. Had everything you could want incl. kayaks and a canoe. Great dock for fishing. Owners Nancy & Dan were warm and friendly, even took us on a boat ride around the lake (much appreciated). We really enjoyed our stay. One thing: as 3 adults traveling together we expected a separate bedroom from the description, but it's actually a studio. Worked out fine.
Nancy and her husband are such nice people. The place was clean. Beautiful view of the lake. Didn't have time for a boat ride, but will next time! Thank you to our hosts!!
A little microcosm of vacation delights
Our mini vacation was a perfect combo of sharing the quiet, perfect getaway that is the lakeside wooded retreat with a bustling visit with my daughters and their families who live in the area. It is charmingly decorated with antiques. It includes so many things populating kitchen cabinets and drawers that you don’t need to bring anything - just stop on the way there for bread, milk and eggs. The lake, dock, beach area with chairs and the fire pit (equipped with chairs) complete the outdoor setting for this cozy place. The owners are wonderful and are available as much or as little as you wish. We will be returning most definitely!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed meeting you both and hearing about Dale's fishing and knowing that you got to spend some quality time with your family. We DO hope to see you all again. BTW, you left our place in beautiful condition, thank you!
