  • Wonderful home that will exceed your expectations!

    "The Cobbles is a wonderful place for family & friends! Photos & description are but a simple, 1-dimensional view of this multi-faceted gem & everywhere you turn will surprise & delight you! 14 adults shared this lovely home for a family reunion & we all shared one common view: the Cobbles felt like home & we can't wait to come back! The Cobbles is an immaculate & lovingly maintained home, guest house, and grounds that retain the charm & aura of the family that owns, lived, played, & loved within her welcoming walls for many generations. Extensive grounds include a separate guest house, tennis court/basketball hoop, outdoor areas, private beach, boathouse, & waterfront deck. The Main House has a lovely screened porch facing the lake and you'll quickly discover why the body of water in front of you is called Sunset Lake. Spectacular! The very large great room & living room have comfortable & varied seating areas for eating, playing, lake views, reading, piano fun, watching TV, or quiet and/or spirited conversations. Enjoy ping pong or an outdoor deck overlooking the grounds and woods. One thing is certain; you will never run out of choices or lack for just the right spot for fun/relaxation! The kitchen had every utensil, pot, pan, dish, glass, cup, tray, or gadget needed, with basic spices & ingredients provided. There are basic soaps & paper products, all appliances work well, & there is a 2nd refrigerator. The boathouse, beach, & lakefront deck offer kayaking, canoeing, & swimming; with toys & personal flotation devices allowing for hours in the water or soaking up the sun, including a picnic table & clothesline. Don’t forget fishing gear since the lake is home to tempting bass & sunfish! The master bedroom is a very large, lovely retreat with a private balcony overlooking the lake. Other bedrooms in the main & guest house are great with comfortable beds, ample closet/storage space, & thoughtful conveniences; all bathrooms are clean & comfortable. There’s convenient grocery shopping in Alton, great food (try Shibley's at the Pier) & lots of sites to enjoy in the area surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee including Old Orchard Beach, Portsmouth, & Mt. Washington. The owner was a pleasure to work with & quickly & professionally answered questions by email. One thing is certain, from the moment you arrive at the Cobbles, to your last day, you will not regret your decision to stay in this fantastic home. Thank you, we cannot wait to return!!"

  • Excellent rental on the lake

    "My family and I had an amazing week at this cottage. It had everything. It was an awesome location with a private beach that my kids enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this for any young family."

  • Memories Made

    "Yes, many wonderful memories were made when my husband and I stayed with our three sons and their families (4 grandchildren under the age of three). The home was beyond our expectation; clean, open and spacious. Words cannot begin to describe the beautiful, private, dead end location, the sandy beach and crystal clear water was enjoyed by all the family members. Panoramic views from the deck and beach of the lake. The fully equipped kitchen came in handy as we all took turns creating wonderful meals for the family! The dock was perfect for our boat and jet ski. Oh yes, the camp fires on the beach..Heavenly! Dave was a pleasure to deal with, and we all want to thank him for allowing us to have these happy memories of his beautiful home! We certainly would come and vacation here again."

  • Fantastic

    "We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home. The photos represented the property. Some of our favorite things - large, well equipped kitchen, big, sunny family room, and downstairs pool table/bunk bed area for the teenagers. The lake is crystal clear and on the shallow side so it is safe for kids and amazingly warm. We used the kayaks every day. We also loved the location - about 30 minutes to either Wolfeboro or Gilmanton. The Shaker Village is nearby as well. Dick was a great communicator and a pleasure do deal with. We highly recommend this property!!"
