"We stayed at The Sandbar in June of 2015 with our children and grandchildren. The location was unbeatable, the lake views breathtaking, the home gorgeous and well appointed but with a cozy family feeling. It was a vacation reunion that my family cherished to the point that everyone is trying to arrange time off together to do a repeat next year if this home is available.
Dave was a great host - always reachable and helpful !!!!"

"What a wonderful spot! We surprised my sister (who has a home at the lake) for her birthday and we found this wonderful place to house us 3 siblings and our spouses! We kayaked, sat the little beach, BBQ'd on the lovely deck, with a gorgeous view of the lake, relaxed and spent some time in Wolfeboro!
The house is beautiful, the beds super comfy, the kitchen fully stocked and really has everything you'd need! The weather was so nice! A few small gliches but Dave was very helpful and accomodating! Also, the home was perfectly clean!!Thanks again!"

"We stayed at this house for one week in July 2015. We were a group of 8 with ages ranging from 55 to 14 years of age. The house is more run down than the photos show. It is in a great location with amazing views of the lake. The size of the house is perfect for large groups or multiple families, as well as the 3 bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. The draw backs include:
There is only one 19 inch old style TV in the whole house and no wireless internet. SWe brought a router after reading a previous review. A flat screen TV would be a great addition in the living area for rainy days and older folks who have a hard time seeing the small one that is there now. The porch furniture is terrible and uncomfortable and the living room couch and chair have seen better days.
Don't expect to use the fireplaces either, since they do not work.
The bed linens are a cheap 200 thread count and no beach towels are provided, so bring your own.
We own a vacation rental and feel with a few minor expenses, this could be a wonderful rental.
The on site care taker is awesome if you need anything!"

"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!"
