  • "I stayed here for a girls' weekend this past Fall. The pictures are absolutely beautiful, but believe me, they don't even begin to show how gorgeous this place is. I didn't want to leave. I can't wait to get back up there!! It was so relaxing!!"

  • Great place for a family reunion

    "Our extended family gets together every other year. One year Vancouver, one year Duck, NC, one year Cape Cod, this was one of our favorites. The Lodge is right on the water with plenty of room to move around and everyone can find their favorite place to read, relax, swim, canoe, access the Internet and explore. When we were there an eagle swooped on the lake, caught a fish and flew to a tree on the property for its feast. The loons at night were magical. There is plenty to do in the area, including the Castle in the Clouds, Wolfboro shopping and boat rentals, the Mt. Washington sightseeing boat from Center Harbor and Wolfboro. The house was clean, well equipped with puzzles, games, cable TV, and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. For a true lake house experience, this fits the bill."

  • Perfect home for a family vacation!

    "What a great home and location to spend a week. Whether you have a family with young kids (I have 4, ages 4-13) or are just looking for a quiet place to relax, this place has it all. Within 30 seconds of arriving my gang had thrown their bathing suits on and swam over to the trampoline located just off the beach. Upon arrival, we were great by Pam & Ron and given a quick run through of the home. The house was very clean and the location is about as perfect as you can get on the lake. It's on a mini-peninsula, so you have a 270 degree view of the lake. Take a few steps down a path and you are on your own private beach with several beach chairs and a fire pit directly on the lake. The owners thought of everything right down to an electric inflatable pump just in case the trampoline or the other inflatable lounge there weren't enough. There is great fishing off the deep water dock as well as the small cliff off the side of the house. We ended up renting a pontoon boat for a few days and took advantage of the dock. I would be careful if you have a toddler or child age 3 or under since the home is right on the lake and a bit elevated. Inside the house, it is very comfortable with an open living space that combines the living room, dining room and kitchen. The home has both Wii and Play Station, yet oddly my video-game loving children did not ask to play for 1 second the entire vacation - a testament to just how great the location was with plenty to do outside. It's a little bit of a drive to get to shopping/convenience stores. Jo-Jo's on the main access road is a great spot if you don't feel like driving 15 minutes to Hannaford in Meredith. Personally, I'd recommend loading up at the grocery store and then stay put.....enjoy the place! My one complaint......Mother Nature. She didn't cooperate the last few days, depriving us of a few beach days, but other than that......perfect!"

  • This place even has a ton of wall outlets!

    "You are no doubt reading this review because you have decided you want to go away, are pretty sure of the location and your budget and the features you'd like in a rental property. You are probably toying with this one and maybe 1 or 2 more. I suggest you email the owners of all of those rentals you are considering with a few questions and see what kind of email you get back. See how long it takes for them to respond, if they answer those questions, what the tone of the email is like and whether they seem friendly and on the ball. I am writing this review to help you make a decision. You see, the owner does not need my help finding renters, so I am writing this for you, the potential renter. Julie, the owner, doesn't need to advertise heavily. I know she has this listed on the usual vacation websites but other than that, it's word of mouth and positive stays that are keeping her calendar full of repeat vacationers. I could go on about how great Crystal lake is or how nice New England is, but you probably know that already and want the real dirt, so to speak. I have rented many houses over the years and I actually enjoy looking at the listings. I'm the one in my family who does all of the leg work when it comes to inquiries, reservations, payment and contracts. So, I have looked at a gazillion listings and contacted many owners. I have had a number of questions for Julie before moving ahead with the actual booking, and more interactions during the reserving process. She is THE BEST owner I have ever dealt with, hands down. No, we are not cousins and I do not know her otherwise. She answered every one of my annoying questions (Do the bedrooms have doors? Bureaus? How close is the nearest neighbor? etc.) and then some. I learned a long time ago, despite great photos, to not assume anything. You know how you sense when someone is in it for the money and to make it worse you get there and find the place so unappealing, like it smells and there's no room for your stuff and there's one lamp in the whole house? Julie and this home are the total opposite. If there's anything I'd like you to take away from this review is this: You are paying for an experience, not just a house. The owner is NORMAL, the house and property are divine, there are only pleasant surprises and you won't regret this choice."
