"We have spent a week here, each summer, for the past 3 years. The owners help to make it such a great experience and are always available if needed. The unit is stocked with all necessary amenities and is always found to be super clean. The back deck with a grill and a firepit with seating is also a plus. We look forward to returning again in July!!"

"We rented Rocky Shore Retreat for one week in July for four adults and two kids. It's a very special spot. Having a pier, dock, private beach, mooring, and floating trampoline dock (brand new) made this the perfect place to really experience the lake. We took full advantage of the kayak, canoe, and windsurfer, and rented power boats from the marina down the street. The deep-water dock made tying up stress-free. A large oak tree in front adds to the beautiful setting, as well as the outdoor fireplace and screened-in porch. There's also a basketball hoop and paved driveway in front, which was an added bonus. The street is extremely quiet and safe.
The house itself is spacious and the kitchen well-equipped. It definitely has a "camp" feel to it. If you're looking for a modern house with brand-new appliances and matching silverware, then this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for a charming, fun, family lake cottage, then you won't be able to find a better setting. We would definitely go back!"

"We have vacationed with our family at this beautiful lakefront cottage on 2 occasions during summer months. Our family treasures the wonderful memories we have of spending time together swimming, canoeing, hiking, and relaxing at this peaceful property. The sunsets are truly amazing! We love this beautiful home! The owner is very cooperative and helpful. We look forward to returning with our family."

"Tom and Rita's cabin is the perfect little getaway for some relaxation. There were four of us total staying in the cabin (two couples), and we were able to bring our shepherd-mix dog along too! We traveled from New Jersey and stayed for a week.
You don't need to travel anywhere to enjoy the area -- you can sip coffee on the dock, toast marshmallows by the fire pit, and swim in the lake. We loved the kayak, rowboat, and canoe. As frequent kayakers, it was a treat to have the boats ready for our use instead of having to lug our own to the lake.
We also went horseback riding at Carousel Horse Farm, visited the easy trails of close-by Pondicherry Park, and drove to the White Mountains of New Hampshire for a challenging hike up Frankenstein Cliff and Arethusa Falls. We even visited the nearby drive-in movie theater, which was so much fun! On the ride home, we visited Portland for a mailboat ride around the islands.
The best part of our week in the cabin was an early morning rowboat ride in the lake. My boyfriend proposed on one knee in the rowboat! With the White Mountains as a backdrop, crystal clear water, and our bright orange life vests, it couldn't have been more perfect or more our style.
Thank you so much, Tom and Rita, for an amazing week in your beautiful cabin."
