Why Marie & Joe chose Lakes Region

We absolutely LOVE New Hampshire! The beauty of the mountains and the lakes is remarkable. When we found this home we knew instantly that we had found the perfect place to be able to get away and relax. Being close to nature is important for us and we are surrounded by it. Yet we are thrilled that Gilmanton is a central location for area attractions and activities. We can drive in any direction and easily get to Lake Winnipesauke, Alton Bay, Wolfeboro, Concord, Laconia, Tilton and many more places. We eventually plan to retire in New Hampshire but in the meantime we are excited about sharing this special gift with you!

What makes this cottage unique

We love listening to the birds and taking hikes on the trails or around the lake. The Audobon Society has a preserve in the area also. The main beach is a short walk away for easy access to water activities or community planned activities.

We provide a journal of area attractions at the home but please let us know what your interests are and we will get all the information for you.

Very well setup and taken care of

  • 5 of 5

All of us had a great time. The house is well equiped with everything you need. We stayed for laconia bike week. The area was quiet and safe. Had no issues leaving bikes outside over night for the week. If your looking for a quiet scenic place to getaway then this is the place for you. I look foward to staying here again.

Cute place cozy and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, clean cozy house! We went during a rainy fall weekend but the house was a great place to relax and be indoors with friends. Twenty minutes from Laconia and other towns. Being by the lake was beautiful I'm sure during the summer it's awesome. Also everything was labeled with very clear instructions. I would definitely stay here again!

Gorgeous fall weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so quaint and cozy and the area was great for walks among the foliage with our dog. The home was warm and everything was labeled so nicely so that we knew what to expect when flipping on the lights or the TV. My only wish was that the kitchen was more well-equipped but we made do!

Sweet little cottage with all the comforts of home!

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented this cottage in July. Everything about our experience was wonderful. It held our whole family, seven strong. It had all the charm of our family's cottage from my childhood, which was a great place to gather with a relaxed feel. There is WiFi, great DVDs, and a grill/deck/table off the kitchen. We roasted s'mores one night by the fire and walked down to the beach often. The kitchen had all appliances and utensils that you would need to cook your meals at the cottage, if you so choose. Marie and her husband are wonderful hosts and respond to your questions quickly. We had a great time and highly recommend this cottage!

Loved it, hope to come back

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Marie's cottage. Marie was helpful and informative, getting information to us on time and as promised. The cottage is really well set up with clear instructions on how to turn everything on, clean linens, and a bunch of useful things in the kitchen. The fire pit is great, and it's a short walk (though I guess most people drive) to a small, lovely beach on a quiet, clean lake with a fun floating dock. We spent the weekend grilling, toasting marshmallows, hiking Mt Major, swimming and tanning, then dropping by a vineyard on the drive home - perfect weekend getaway. We would all love to come back soon, maybe for fall foliage or during ski season. Thanks Marie!

Perfect, cozy and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has all the essentials for a quiet, relaxing get-away. Marie has made sure to provide everything needed for a comfortable stay. Well kept, stocked and clean. It's what we were looking for! Ample space, warm bedrooms, beautiful views of the lake. Very enjoyable stay! Two small wishes for the next time...there was no internet service, and I would have loved to have the fireplace available on the beautiful snowy weekend we spent there. Otherwise, great experience. Thanks, Marie!
