"Overall, I personally enjoyed the stay, is peaceful, close to everything but is not for people with boats or want to be in the mix of things on a big lake.
-Very private area
-Fairly warm water
-Near restaurants and the tilton outlets
-Good for families that want privacy but not for partiers or people who have a boat that wants to be on the big lake.
Not the best but still OK:
- It is not connected to Lake Winnisquam it is on the cove that is technically on the lake but split between small trees. There is a few trails to get through to the actual lake. However, the water is very calm and great for swimming and playing in the water. It is what the title says "Cabin on the cove".
-The largest Epham cabin that is shown in the pictures where the others is not is adjacent to the Emerson cabin but the Thoreau cabin is across the street
-It is not the cabins fault but there is a lot of bugs outside and no way to keep them out of the house
-The cabin is a cabin it could be updated but still in decent condition
My recommendation is to go drive if you know the location to check out the cabins or areas before you book! The owner Steve is a very nice guy too!"

"We were two families sharing this house for the week and we had a fantastic time, brought our boat with us. loved having the dock right there. Fishing was fantastic. Loved having the grill on porch and the fire pit for smores. Owner was very nice to deal with, answered all our questions and returned my deposit back promptly. House was very clean, AC in Master bedroom. Only down side was the association beach not kept up - weeds. Pool was great.
Would highly recommend the Lake House to others."

"We had a lovely time staying at the cottage and viewing the fall leaves! My mom, sister and little nieces came to visit and we decided to go to the Lakes region to see the beautiful fall colors. Our group consisted of 3 adults (1 senior) and two children (3 years and 1.5 years) The cottage suited us very well, as we had many different needs with all of our age ranges. The little ones had tons of books and toys to play with which were all available in a bookcase in the cottage. They loved playing in the yard as well, there were lots of fun outdoor toys and games for them also provided. The big girls loved having wine and sitting on the deck star gazing after the little ones went to sleep.
The town of Alton Bay is close and convenient, and we really enjoyed eating at Shibleys at the Pier, which was recommended in the visitor book. We also ventured into Wolfboro for the day and had a great time browsing the streets and shops. The grounds around the cottage are beautiful and very peaceful. I could imagine writing a novel out on the deck!
We had everything we needed and were very comfortable during our stay. I recommend this property to anyone looking for a good place to gather and enjoy the outdoors!"
