Recent Lakes Region reviews

  • Peaceful family fall retreat!

    "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!"

  • Quaint, quiet, relaxing vacation spot

    "Good sized roomy cottage with great cell service, free wifi and local use of a telephone. Lots of fresh blueberries (called whortleberries) were available for picking. Ducks and loons all around. Quiet enough to hear the loon calls morning and night. Spectacular views of mountain, islands and lake area. Dock that has protective rubber to protect your boat. Nature walks around the house showcased coral sticks and indian pipe plants which are usually seen only in natural settings. Safe place for kids, adults and/or families with games, puzzles and loads of VCR and DVDs for rainy days. We enjoyed our entire week!"

  • Wonderful Vacation & Wonderful Owners

    "This summer (2014) was our second time at the house. New Hampshire is beautiful; this house is fabulous. The yard is generous and well-maintained. View of mountains is magnificent. Last summer (2013), the house almost felt too big for us. This summer, we invited family, including my sister and brother-in-law and their children. My sister's family came with their dog. The space worked perfectly. It is an old house--the older portion of the house is very old (like 18th century-old!). The space is interesting--it does not have big, great and open rooms. Instead, it has a couple of large rooms and many small rooms. We found that the children enjoyed the small rooms--the room with the air hockey game, the room with the foosball game, and the small reading room off the master bathroom. There was space for all. Children, teens, adults, and dog. We all enjoyed being in the yar--the kids played constantly and the adults sat outside and read, talked and enjoyed teh beautiful grounds. There is no internet connection at the house (which was a welcome change even if some had withdrawal...); Smart phones with WIfi phones worked decently, and we loved the Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro public libraries (quiet, free internet, great to get work done when needed). Small public beach is 3 miles away (some of us ran there or did regular 3-4 mile runs on the streets of Tuftonboro). Beach has nice space for swimming (including lap swimming), a lifeguard until 5pm, covered eating area, and is not heavily populated. Pier 19 Grocer is across the street--Chester's Fried Chicken at the beach was a favorite! Nearby: Wolfeboro (beautiful), Moultonboro (we ate many good meals at The Village Kitchen on Rt 25 (free WIFI, open @6AM!)), nice hikes--Castle in Clouds (multiple), Red Hill; great ice cream (generous scoops!) @Bailey's Bubble (both locations) & Flurries (Meredith). The house is perfect for a group and great for children; it's not fancy and precious, but old, lived in & comfortable. As a mother of energetic children, I never worried that the kids would break anything. Lisa and Rick, the owners, are EXCEPTIONAL. They get customer service. Lisa is responsive and thoughtful. This summer, the dryer broke shortly after we arrived. Within hours, Rick had someone look at it and then, a few hours later, came to the house with a brand new, industrial-sized dryer. He removed the old one, installed the new one, and we never had another dryer problem! I highly recommend this house to anyone."

  • Very private/peaceful area, on cove, not big lake

    "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. Positives: -Very private area -Paddle boat -Canoe -Swim dock -Fairly warm water -Fire pit -Big property -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!"
