Absolutly Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a great spot to spend a "Guys only" weekend. I reached out to Meg and she was very helpful and easy going through the whole process. The house was perfect, plenty of space for 12 men to relax and enjoy the amazing views. We enjoyed sitting on the deck over the water with a fire roaring and cold drinks in our hands. We are already looking forward to next years get away at this same house. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental like this one.

Right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a a lake house with plenty of room, right on the lake, with plenty of dock space and some large open decks, this is the house to rent. We've rented for three years and our kids and grandkids have a ball every year. There's a pool table, comfortable living area and added space in an adjoining cottage. Never had a problem worth mentioning and plan to go back next year.

perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14, three generations, have spent several years here. It is wonderful, enough space in the houses to spread out and come together as desired. The decks overlooking the lake are ideal for games, eating, or reading. Enjoyed the fire pit-plenty of space for smores and relaxing.

George and Meg have a wonderful property up on lake Winnisquam. My friends and I stayed there for a long weekend and it was excellent. Their rental property has it all. Plenty of space for a large group and beautiful views of the lake with water access. The pool table is a huge plus. Meg and George were easy to communicate before and after my stay. I highly recommend this rental property if you are looking for a getaway.
