  • Great Vacation Rental!

    "We vacationed from 7/31-8/7/10. We loved this house. It is beautiful. The pictures really don't do the house justice. It is much bigger than we were expecting. The house has been recently renovated. Everything was really new and it was very clean. The views of the lakes are incredible. My husband loved fishing off the dock each night. (He had great luck fishing right before dark.) We also used the canoe provided and canoed around the lake. The lake is a great size and is really peaceful. We also went to Johnson's Dairy Bar for dinner and ice cream. This place was great! We loved our vacation and hope to rent again next year."

  • This place even has a ton of wall outlets!

    "You are no doubt reading this review because you have decided you want to go away, are pretty sure of the location and your budget and the features you'd like in a rental property. You are probably toying with this one and maybe 1 or 2 more. I suggest you email the owners of all of those rentals you are considering with a few questions and see what kind of email you get back. See how long it takes for them to respond, if they answer those questions, what the tone of the email is like and whether they seem friendly and on the ball. I am writing this review to help you make a decision. You see, the owner does not need my help finding renters, so I am writing this for you, the potential renter. Julie, the owner, doesn't need to advertise heavily. I know she has this listed on the usual vacation websites but other than that, it's word of mouth and positive stays that are keeping her calendar full of repeat vacationers. I could go on about how great Crystal lake is or how nice New England is, but you probably know that already and want the real dirt, so to speak. I have rented many houses over the years and I actually enjoy looking at the listings. I'm the one in my family who does all of the leg work when it comes to inquiries, reservations, payment and contracts. So, I have looked at a gazillion listings and contacted many owners. I have had a number of questions for Julie before moving ahead with the actual booking, and more interactions during the reserving process. She is THE BEST owner I have ever dealt with, hands down. No, we are not cousins and I do not know her otherwise. She answered every one of my annoying questions (Do the bedrooms have doors? Bureaus? How close is the nearest neighbor? etc.) and then some. I learned a long time ago, despite great photos, to not assume anything. You know how you sense when someone is in it for the money and to make it worse you get there and find the place so unappealing, like it smells and there's no room for your stuff and there's one lamp in the whole house? Julie and this home are the total opposite. If there's anything I'd like you to take away from this review is this: You are paying for an experience, not just a house. The owner is NORMAL, the house and property are divine, there are only pleasant surprises and you won't regret this choice."

  • Loved it, hope to come back

    "We had a wonderful stay at Marie's cottage. Marie was helpful and informative, getting information to us on time and as promised. The cottage is really well set up with clear instructions on how to turn everything on, clean linens, and a bunch of useful things in the kitchen. The fire pit is great, and it's a short walk (though I guess most people drive) to a small, lovely beach on a quiet, clean lake with a fun floating dock. We spent the weekend grilling, toasting marshmallows, hiking Mt Major, swimming and tanning, then dropping by a vineyard on the drive home - perfect weekend getaway. We would all love to come back soon, maybe for fall foliage or during ski season. Thanks Marie!"

Gilmanton Travel Tips

Stay in Gilmaton Vacation Rentals for an Affordable Vacation

If you're planning to visit beautiful New Hampshire, a stay in Gilmanton vacation rentals could ease your budget. Instead of piling your family and a group of friends into cramped, expensive hotel rooms, consider renting a house where you all relax and enjoy each other's company while saving on costs. Dine in or eat out when you stay in your rental. Either head out to a nearby restaurant or visit the local grocery store and come back to your house to make a gourmet meal in your fully equipped kitchen.

Celebrate the Beauty Surrounding Gilmanton Lodging

Gilmanton lodging options offer you a front seat on a lake known for its cleanliness. Escape the stresses of your daily lifestyle as you sit with loved ones on an enclosed porch and enjoy panoramic views of the water and mountain ranges. If your rental comes with a boat on Crystal Lake, take the boat out and explore the waterways. Alton Bay is only a short distance away. The lake is also perfect for swimming and fishing, and the area is great for hiking. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the habitat surrounding you.

Gather With Loved Ones in New Hampshire Lakes Vacation Homes

Plan a reunion or small getaway with loved ones when you stay in New Hampshire Lakes vacation homes. The spacious houses with multiple bedrooms offer peace and quiet for those wanting to rest. Comfortable living rooms with stereos, televisions, Internet, and games encourage people to gather together for some fun. If you are not playing in the water, head into town for some outlet shopping or maybe a game of miniature golf. Come back and relax in front of the fire or plan your own group barbequeue back at the house before participating in some star gazing.
