  • Beautiful relaxing vacation

    "We stayed here with 4 adults, a 7 year old child and a dog. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived because the photos do not do the house justice. The entry level has 2 bedrooms (one with a king bed and one with a queen bed) and a bathroom. The bedrooms were very pretty, clean and comfortable with ceiling fans and air conditioners. The basement level (one level down) has a bigger bathroom and a room with 2 twin beds. There is also a loft area above the living room which had a small sleeping area which was perfect for our 7 year old. The house was clean and well maintained with a nice supply of dishes, towels, etc. We spent alot of time at the waterfront area which was small but worked well for our group. The dock was twice as wide as shown in the photos and more sturdy than I was expecting. The hammock was a terrific place to read and watch the water. The lake itself has boat traffic but it was very quiet and minimal while we were there and we had a great time exploring with the 2 kayaks and canoe that were on the property. It is a great place to fish and swim - there's a rocky entry and bottom for the swimming area but it was fine with swim shoes. One warning that there are alot of stairs to get down to the waterfront so it would be difficult for someone with disabilities and would be alot of work with very young children. But it worked perfectly for a 7 year old and a medium sized dog and gave us extra exercise. The owner was very responsive via email before we arrived and was quick to answer any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this rental as a beautiful stay for someone looking to relax and enjoy the water!"

  • Beautiful

    "My family and I rented the waterfall cottage for the 2nd time this past august and enjoyed it more than last year. The kids were so excited to go back because of all the fun they had last year and could not wait to fish and swim off the dock and have fun. The cottage is so clean and kid friendly and the sound of the waterfall is relaxing. Cant wait to come back next year!"

  • Joel's Lakehouse Our Home Away From Home

    "Lake Cobboseecontee & Joel's Lakehouse are the best vacation destination. This was our second time staying here. We loved it just as much this summer as we did last year. Very relaxing, very peaceful & a very welcoming home. Catching lg mouth bass, sm mouth bass, pike & yellow perch was a ton of fun. Great Lake for boating & swimming. Can't go wrong staying here for vacation. Joel & Ashley provide absolutely everything you need at the house. Can't speak highly enough of their Lakehouse or them. Very accommodating! We will be back."

  • Perfect Getawat

    "My husband and I rented the cottage for our 5 year anniversary and had the most wonderful time. We were arriving late on Thursday night and Kathie had arranged to have a light left on and the heat turned on. It was a pleasure to arrive to a well-lit and warm home and a testament to how easy it was to work with the owner during the rental. The home was spotless and held everything we needed for our short stay, from extra blankets and towels to pots and pans and a wonderful array of local magazines. We utilized the Wi-Fi to listen to music and enjoyed our time cooking, relaxing in the hot tub and appreciating the peaceful Maine woods. We took Kathie's advice in the thoughtful and carefully executed "instructions" for the cabin and went for a short hike down to the Basin to take in the views and built fires on two occasions using the fire pit and ample firewood. We raved so highly of the place when we returned that our house sitter booked a trip up with his girlfriend for next month. We cannot wait for our next trip back!"
