  • Fantastic family rental!

    "My family and I had a reunion at Allan and Sandy's home and it was absolutely perfect. Allan was responsive and friendly throughout the process, and even checked in on us via email several times during our 10-day stay. The house was neat as a pin, freshly cleaned, well-maintained, and very comfortable. The furniture, beds, and linens especially were great, and the kitchen was so well stocked that we had no trouble cooking like we were right at home. Altogether we had 6 adults and 3 children and with the 4 bedrooms there was plenty of comfortable space and privacy for all of us. The town is lovely and quiet but has all the amenities we needed - restaurants, shopping, ice cream and coffee! - and the private beach at the lake was a 3 minute drive from the house. The only time we had to contact the property manager was when the cable box stopped working, and the handyman contacted me immediately and had a new box to us the very next morning. We had a wonderful time and would recommend that anyone rent this house from Allan and Sandy!"

  • Had a great time

    "My family had a wonderful week at this house. The house has many large windows with skylights. The owner was very responsive to emails and made sure we had all the information we needed for a wonderful stay. I recommend that you rent a boat to enjoy the beautiful lake and its many attractions. Plenty of room for all. We would definitely come back for another week."

  • Loved this vacation spot

    "My husband and I loved our getaway to Lake Winisquam and this apartment was perfect. Tidy, well cared for and well equipped. The apartment has lots of homey touches. The views from the apartment and the dock were great. Swimming was wonderful as was paddling around in kayaks. Our hosts were very friendly and whenever we had a question, they were so helpful and we also had sufficient privacy. Next year we look forward to coming back and staying longer!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "I have to start off by saying how friendly, gracious and welcoming Carol & Al are!!! We have never felt so at home on vacation! The cottage is very clean, comfortable and cozy. We felt it had everything our family of 4 needed. Blaisdell Lake is absolutely beautiful, clear and quiet (which is amazing since we were there during 4th of July festivities). We had so much fun swimming, fishing and boating and the kids also liked hunting for the tiniest toads I have ever seen! I can't say enough good things about Damselfly Cottage.......this is the 5th year we have rented a lake house and our 1st time here (we usually pick a different spot every year) and this is the first place that we have ever considered coming back to. I hated to leave! I am so happy to have been able to enjoy this little piece of heaven in NH."
