  • Country living

    "Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at Moat Brook Cottage. Immaculately clean & tidy. Wish I could hire their housekeeper for my own home. Pleasant casual decor, new carpet, durable furniture and ample space for luggage as well as three large closets if you want to fully unpack. All the kitchen equipment we needed to cook breakfasts and dinner, plus some basic pantry staples and detergents. Gas grill clean & worked great. Really enjoyed the big TV in the evenings. Bed pillows a bit flat, but we slept well. Easy access to N. Conway by going a few miles north on West Side Road to the River Road. West Side Rd. is a favorite route for locals to bypass the congestion of N.Conway so it can be busy at times. The only surprise was a dairy farm a few hundred yards away that can be aromatic at times. We weren't inconvenienced by that. I'm a farm girl and smells are part of country living. The cottage is well insulated so we didn't need to open windows for our early fall visit. This is a great place for families with kids old enough to avoid the road as there is no fence. Great value. Owner responded to inquiries promptly and easy to work with on booking."

  • My hard-to-please husband loves this house

    "The great room is a terrific space with a lovely view. The large, handsome stone fireplace kept everyone cozy during our season's first snowfall. We cooked elaborate meals all weekend and the kitchen had everything we needed--including multiple ways to brew coffee. Our six-year-old loved exploring the toys in the toy cupboard and the backyard--and she could not get enough of the ping pong table. The instructions for the house (trash, heat, fireplace, etc) are clear and well-organized, and include a terrific list of things to do in the area. In 15 years of vacationing, this is the ONLY house my husband has ever said he would return to. Woo hoo!!"

  • Great Yard/Huge House

    "The cast of ImprovBoston's Family show has a "retreat" every 6 months to get away and hang out, and this is by far the nicest Home Away location we've stayed at! We spent a lot of time outside while here; the yard was perfect for grilling, hanging out, playing frisbee or sunbathing. Those of us who wanted a little more adventure were close to the mountains so hiking was a great option, while others had a short trip to make to hang out downtown. The inside of the house perfectly suited our needs as well! We're a cast of 13 adults, and so we needed a big kitchen and enough bedrooms- this surpassed our expectations. The kitchen was a great size, enough space to store food for everyone, cook and eat! All large number of bedrooms allowed almost everyone to have their own bed and sleep comfortably. In fact, all the living areas were comfortable and homey with more than enough space. Finally Brenda (the owner) was very professional and pleasant to work with. The house was in the exact condition she said it would be and advertised it as, the key and contract arrived on time, and she was available by phone or email for further questions. We loved our stay and would highly recommend it to others!"

    "If you are a true Lake Connoisseur, put this on your Top 10 List. Swimmer's & paddler's paradise. Quiet. Clean. Loons! Stars! Beautifully equipped kitchen. Totally unobstrusive but lovely young couple owner/landlord and well-behaved & charming old dog. For this reviewer, the best part is the water: the location on a tiny point of land leaves you surrounded on 3 sides by the soft, glimmering, shimmering, inviting water of Lake Skatatukee (pronounced with emphasis on the "-ta"). If relaxation is what you seek, if swimming, canoeing and reading are your idea of a good time, this is the place for you! (Bring your mountain bike - many roads in the area are dirt & gravel). (ps: bedroom mattress is quite soft).""
