Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

Great retreat! This home has everything you need! The owner is very helpful and ensures you have all the fixings of home. Not too far from downtown Portsmouth (20 min Uber ride) and other attractions (wineries etc). Plenty of space for the entire family or large group!

Property was well cared for and just as described in the listing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. There were 9 of us in total and had a comfortable stay. We brought a queen air mattress that helped with sleeping arrangements.

Perry was a welcoming host who was available for any questions that arose in advance of our stay and during the weekend. He went above and beyond to ensure we had the best stay possible. The house is in a great location, clean, and had all the extras you could need (kitchen items, spices, hair dryers, pillows, blankets, firewood).

One piece of advice: leave extra time for the laundry dryer. Perry mentioned this during our tour but I didn't realize that each load would need a full hour+ to dry. It wasn't an issue for us, but I would have planned my departure differently if I had known.

Overall, our stay could not have been better! Thank you Perry!

College friends reunion

  • 5 of 5

8 college friends rented this property and had a wonderful time. The house is well-suited for a group of women with 3 bathrooms. And the view is spectacular at all hours of the day. Perry is a great host and quick to help with any questions. We did lots of sightseeing in Maine, Massachusetts and coastal New Hampshire. House is very well situated to the highways and yet very quiet and private.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property in June 2016 for a guys golf getaway. The house is huge and has everything you need. You only need to pack clothes and toiletries. There was a gas grill on the deck and a hot tub downstairs. The house is within 15 minutes of two golf courses and Portsmouth. I will definitely be back.

Great home in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this house for a girls weekend. We had a great time. The back deck is perfect for sitting out in the sun and looking at the water. The house has lots of space and the hot tub is a great feature. The house is close enough to downtown Portsmouth to take a cab but far enough away for peace and quiet.

Great Home - Definitely 5 Star

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home in November 2015 for a family Thanksgiving retreat. We could not have picked a better home. The house as a very nice balance of providing all the modern conveniences we all "need" (like Internet, Cable TV, full kitchen appliances, gas grill, etc) yet it has a very "cabin on the lake" feel to it. That provided for a very relaxing environment. Perry told us "just bring your luggage and food" and he sure was right. The house is set up with all the odds and ends you might need. Perry was also very helpful if needed yet he left us to ourselves allowing us full privacy. One other note is that we had age range up to 82 years old and the house was perfect for associated needs of the elderly. I have rented many VRBO homes and know good from bad and this house is great if you are looking for relaxing peace on a beautiful lake.
