About Bill McGrath
I am one of twelve children. I grew up in Meriden, CT and used to come to Forest Lake every Summer, since 1950. I graduated from the University of Hartford in Hartford, CT in 1979 with BS in Business Administration and graduated with MBA in Management in 1986. I spent most of my career as Material Manager for a small company in Bloomfield, CT. My wife and I are currently retired. I am currently on the Zoning Board of Adjustment and was on the School Board and Board of Selectmen.
Bill McGrath purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Bill McGrath chose Winchester
I spent every Summer here, since 1950. I really loved the area and the people. My dream was to retire here. We purchased this property in 1992 and in 2005 we built our retirement home on Forest Lake. It's like being on vacation year round. We hate to leave to go anywhere else.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the lake, the woods, and the mountains. We like the rural character of the area. It's so peaceful and serene. It's like being on vacation year round. We like to travel, but we enjoy the area so much we don't like to leave.

Amazing lake house
Bill was an amazing host! He was very easy to communicate with and responded very promptly. We stayed for 2 nights for a bike race. The house was exeptionally clean and offered everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay with Bill again!
Thank you for the review. You and your friends were great guests.
Comfortable, clean, lakeside accommodations with a beautiful view.
Overall experience was great, perfect location for our daughters graduation from Keene State. Kitchen well appointed, we had a nice cookout. Enjoyed the beautiful lake, wish we had more time to enjoy even more! Clean and comfortable.
Fantastic place to unwind.
We had a great time right on the lake. Bill, Sandie and Cassie were fantastic. The apartment has everything your could need for your stay. I was impressed how clean and warm the lake was. We had a lot of fun cooking in the full kitchen and the restaurants around the area are also excellent.
We will definitely be making the trip there again.
We loved it

It was great hosting you, your wife and friends. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here and are looking forward to your returning the next time that you are in the area.
Beautiful lakeside getaway
We needed a short notice weekend getaway for some rest and relaxation. This rental fit the profile to a tee and was a wonderful place to stay. The owner was great and gave us all the help we needed leading up to our trip and then once we got there. Very friendly and thorough. The house was beautiful and came with everything we needed. We would love to come back in the warmer months to take full advantage of the lake and all the amenities offered. We would highly recommend this rental. Everything about it was fabulous.
Thank you. we look forward to your return visit.
