"We stayed here with three adults and two children (5 and 7) and had a good time.
The house has a nice beach and swimming to go with it (shared with other properties.)
It is nicely situated for nature walks, kayaking, and swimming.
With the children the street running between the house and the beach is a little drawback. But you will find that with many properties around newfound lake and we were aware of it.
The house is well equipped, we found everything we needed.
Only reason for taking off one star is that we found the refrigerator dirty with old and outdated food in it."

"This house is fantastic. Period.
Every detail has been thought out. Everything you need and everything you want is here. There is plenty of room for lots of people and there's lots of spaces to sit with smaller groups and play games at night or watch a movie on a rainy day. The house is meticulously maintained, very clean and inviting. It's great to have 2 en-suite bedrooms, because sometimes your parents don't want to share a bathroom with your kids! The kitchen has everything you need to cook and serve a crowd. The ice-machine was wonderful to have! The main living space is open and spacious, and can open up to the screen porch, making it a great place for everyone to be together. The screen porch is always key at a lake house, and this one was perfect. TVs in all the rooms made my kids happy, and the basement was well used, with the Wii and ping pong table. Outside, there was something for everyone. SUPs and kayaks and the canoe, all in perfect working order, with life jackets to fit everyone. The shed was filled with water toys for the smaller kids. There was simply nothing missing! The beach area was well maintained with plenty of chairs, and the fire pit was great.We were out there every night watching the beautiful sunsets and roasting marshmallows. Even the neighbors were lovely.
Our experience with the owner, Andy, was also fantastic. He was very responsive from our first inquiry to the day we left. He stopped by to introduce himself on our second day to make sure we were happy with everything and to answer any questions we may have had. He's a super nice guy.
This area of the lake is our favorite. It's quiet and peaceful without being too remote. The shops and restaurants in Merideth are just a short drive away, so there's never a dull moment, even if the weather doesn't cooperate. So many places we didn't even get a chance to check out, we can't wait to go back. This was a completely fantastic vacation spot! Highly recommend!! Thank you, Andy!"

"We had such a beautiful week on the lake. One rainy day we hit the outlets for some shopping. This is a great spot. Close to everything, fantastic Local Eatery in lacuna juts up the road, hiking all around. There is sand bar very close which means when the boats go by, they are slow and quiet. We spent a lot of time floating on the lake, thanks to the folates provided by Dottie. Afternoons relaxing in the sun or shade in the yard. Very kind hosts, we found some fresh veggies from the garden and some homemade cookies on our doorstep. Doesn't get much better than this beautiful peacful spot. The photos did a great job, you get what you see."

"I stayed at this cottage with 4 friends over 4th of July weekend and it was exactly what I thought it would be: charming, rustic, with beach access and in a great location right in the heart of Weirs by the boardwalk. The owner was responsive and great to work with. We knew exactly what to expect and even got a positive surprise with more bedding/towels/beach toys available for use than we thought. The experience was pretty perfect. The only criticism would be that the private beach area isn't as large as I thought it would be, but still plenty of room to lay out and once you're in the water, the lake is huge and obviously all yours!!! Would definitely recommend this property for someone looking for a charming cottage for a weekend getaway!"
