  • Just perfect

    "I cannot say enough good things about The Coop. I was totally worn out and needed a "reset" week in a bucolic setting. This place was just perfect. A lot of attention to detail was put into the design and building of this wonderfully intimate building, and it envelops you in a restful atmosphere immediately. There is a kitchen that has all the utensils and appliances one could want, plus many extras such as spices. The electric heater is available when needed; I stayed in mid-September and needed it a few times. Wireless connectivity is spotty, so I would not recommend this for anyone who will need to use the Internet a lot. This wasn't a problem for me, however, since the whole point of choosing this place was to get away from it all. I liked the excuse to not respond to work emails! There are games and books in a large cupboard, and Phyllis and Mitch have assembled a 3-ring binder with information about local places to eat, shop, hike, and visit. One of the tremendous assets of the location is that it is at the intersection of two dirt roads that offer excellent walking hikes (I've heard these referred to as "wikes"). It was great to roll out of bed and not have to drive to another place to get in a good bit of exercise. 100 feet away from The Coop you have the choice of which road to explore, and you are off. Both roads follow old stone walls and are through mature forests. I did 1.5 hour walks every day and seeing the sun dappling down through the canopy of trees was soothing to the soul. Phyllis and Mitch were available as resources yet also let me have complete privacy. They are definitely one (two) of the selling points for this property. I invited my wife up to join me at one point, and we decided that we will be coming back to The Coop at some point."

  • A great vacation!

    "Our family of four, including my mother-in-law, stayed at this house for a week in July and had a great time. Before we rented, the owners were great at answering questions and were very responsive. It's a very short walk to Newfound Lake and similar to another posting there is a slight decline/hill getting to and from the beach area. Both my children loved to "race" us each way. Needless to say they won! We watched several people bring their vehicles to the beach area to drop-off and pickup with ease. The outside shower at the house is nice to wash all the sand off. The house is even better than the pictures. It's well laid out and the house has everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen! Even though there is a table in the kitchen, we enjoyed eating dinner at the table that's in the three season porch each night and my children loved having breakfast there in the morning. So peaceful and relaxing! Their flower garden is wonderful and my children and mother-in-law enjoyed trying to identify the various flowers. You can do as little or as much as you want in the area. We headed out each day for excursions from Laconia to Jefferson and everywhere in between and it was nice to come back to a place where we could kick-back and relax."

  • 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!!"
