Quiet, Peaceful, Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great week at Lake Winnisquam. This waterfront one-bedroom apartment is close to everything the Lake area has to offer. It is right near the bridge, miniature golf, restaurants (all less than 1/2 mile... almost walking distance) and the Tanger Outlets (about 4.5 miles). There is off-street parking right in front of the cottage. You do need to go down five steps to the main level of the yard, but there are railings to help navigate up and down. Once down the stairs, the entrance to the apartment is on the left of the cottage and it is only one step down into the living room. Inside you get a wonderful expansive view of the lake from the living room windows and the room is much larger than the photos indicate, as is the whole apartment in general. There is a cute kitchen with all appliances, bathroom with walk-in shower, and a one bed/bedroom with plenty of closet and drawer space. You also get a lovely yard in which to sit (either in sun or shade any time of day) with an outdoor table, four comfortable chairs, and nice clean grille for your convenience. The yard is well-cared for and has lovely flowers and tasteful decorations here and there. You have a lot of privacy, as the owners live upstairs and utilize their deck leaving the outside lawn to their quests.

The sandbar area is directly in front of you, so it was a great place to people and boat watch. We swam out to the sandbar a few times with floats. I don't think I would swim the distance without a float, however, as it was very shallow for half the swim but then it was over my head for the second half until you got to the sandbar. It was a nice refreshing swim on the whole. There is a small sandy area in which to enter the water that is free from the small pebbles and rocks which we have encountered at other cottages, but this is only for about 8-10 feet. Like most of Lake Winnisquam, most of the sand is out at the sandbar.

I highly recommend this apartment for a single person or couple, as it is very clean and comfortable and has a beautiful yard with privacy. The owners, Dorothy and David, are very nice and extremely accommodating. This apartment is a great waterfront spot.

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed here for 3 nights. Couldn't ask for a better deal! Right on the water, beach access, a grill AND the use of 2 kayaks and a canoe. The hosts were wonderful. The apartment was adorable and the kitchen was fully equipt. I also forgot a couple toiletries and there was a basket in the bathroom of anything you may have forgotten.

The location is also near the marina where we rented a boat, and right by the mini-golf which we also did. I would absolutely reccomend this to anyone who wants a lakeside getaway. Cheaper than most hotels and you get a whole lot more. Thanks Dotty and Dave!

Lovely little respite

  • 5 of 5

Dottie and Dave were perfect hosts; the lake was beautiful and fascinating to watch to boats moored on the sandbar. The marina is close for those who want to rent kayaks or canoes. For us it was perfect just to relax and get-a-way. If you are a strong swimmer, the sandbar is about 150 yds off shore, but why would you want to as the little sandy beach is right there?

There is a little local lobster/clam "restaurant" very close, as is much of the retail that you might need.

The bed is comfortable, the kitchen well-appointed; after driving many, miles this place was perfect. (Dave's garden was impressive)

Note: there are a number of stairs to negotiate, and tall people probably would not be comfortable.

Dottie and Dave - thanks for being the perfect host and hostess!
