"This property is simply fantastic, We have used HomeAway about 10 times for vacations, and this is definitely our favorite one so far. The lot is the best you could ask for. The sandy beach has a very gentle slope so you can dip your feet into the clean water or slowly go in deeper. There is a dock, and a grassy yard with a firepit. It is incredibly private. There is a fence on one side and tons of trees and bushes on the other side, so you are not on top of your neighbors, like most places. There is also a huge deck and two patio sets so you could sit 10 for dinner out there. We used the two kayaks every day to paddle around the lake, and it was beautiful. We tried the paddle boat too, but the kayaks are more fun.
Inside, the house is open concept with high ceilings and large rooms. We like to cook, and there was every kitchen tool and pan you would ever need. Plus a dishwasher, which is unusual for a lake rental. The house is super clean and neat. We were able to easily hook up our laptop to the TV to watch some Netflix, plus there is a dvd player to watch movies (there is a Redbox about 10 minutes away). The owneres really have thought of everything. We went to Dantes one night, which is a fantastic Italian restaurant nearby. We also went to Smokey Goodness Pub for some great barbecue one night. But our favorite thing to do was just sit on the deck or in the living room and look out at the lake and relax.
I HIGHLY recommend this house, it is exactly what we wanted in a relaxing lake house. I wish we didn't have to leave!"

"3 friends and I rented this charming little house for 5 days this past Oct. We came to see the fall color change and were not disappointed. Great location. Very private feel but not too far from the town of Meredith with shops and restaurants and grocery. House is very accommodating. Took a little while to get used to using bottled water for cooking/washing food, but all in all it was very relaxing and charming. We really enjoyed our wine and cheese afternoons on the patio overlooking the lake with gorgeous sunsets. We even got out on the kayaks one day. Great 'home base" for our trips apple picking, wine tasting, touring Castle in the Clouds, cruising the lake on the Mt. Washington. We cooked a lot in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed feeling "at home" over our dinners, winding down from our days adventures. Great local produce from various farm stands. Owner, Sue, was a joy to work with - very prompt responses to any inquiries and helpful with tips on local info. Also provided linens for us "out of towners" for a nominal charge. Had a WONDERFUL time."

"We truly enjoyed our stay at the Bluffs - plenty of room for all of us, really nice beach area that is well maintained by the homeowners association only 1/2 mile away with a golf cart to get us there. Everything was as advertised. The owners were especially attentive and genuinely cared that we enjoyed their property. Morning coffee on the deck watching the sun come up was truly wonderful!"

"I couldn’t say enough great things about this property. I made the unfortunate mistake of booking the same week as the Laconia Motorcycle week, but since the property contained everything that we needed, we didn’t have to battle the crowds in town for entertainment! The kids were able to fish w/o an Out of State fishing license, but the adults got theirs to that they could fish off the private dock, too. It was so nice to have everyone in the same area but also participating in different activities. The back of the house is set up in tiers so people on the top deck were able to yell down to the people on the dock if needed. The boats were regularly used for fishing as well as a relaxing paddle out into the cove. Once you go through the culvert pipe to Paugus Bay, the water was a bit more choppy, so it made it hard to paddle. We were able to see the train go by a few times, but since they weren’t on a regular schedule due to Motorcycle Week, we were unable to ride it. The kitchen had everything we needed, the dining table and bar counter fit 8 adults and 3 children perfectly. We ate together for every dinner that entire week. It was wonderful. The property owners were extremely accessible and friendly as well as professional and knowledgeable. The house sits at the end of a sort of hollow, so you don’t have the constant back-and-forth traffic that you may have at other properties. The laundry was a nice added feature since we decided to pack light on the clothes. We were able to re-use the same articles of clothing over and over as well as drying out bathing suits/beach towels before packing them up to come home. We experienced one rainy day but were kept entertained with all the Wii games and movies that came with the downstairs rec room. The one funky thing that we never got a hold of were which of the house’s switches went with which lights. Needless to say, there were some lightshows going on before bed each night as we tried to turn everything off J
We would love to come back as our family from Arizona was able to fly into Boston and take the short 2 hour drive into the property as well as it being within driving distance for all of us coming from Ohio .
Unforgettable memories had by all ages!! Thank you for lending us your home for that time, Allison and Robb, and have a great summer!"
