Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at this rental. We rented House # 1 and Cottage #3. Both places were just what we need with the amount of people we had. The grocery store wasn't to far so we bought all our food and just stay at the rental for the weekend. It worked out great with the grill.

We brought two boats and docked them right outside the house which was so convenient and perfect!

There's a Market on the lake where you can just pull up on your boat, dock, and get food and drinks. It was great!

Lake Winnisquam was so clean! We had a fabulous time on the water. Our group even went to the Sand Bar with the boats and spent the day. It was so nice to just drive the boats back to our rental and dock it for the nights.

We will definitely be back! I recommended this spot to our friends and family also. This rental is a great location on the Lake.

Catherine was great to work with. She said this rental would be perfect for what we wanted for the weekend and she was right! Everyone had a Blast!

Thank you!

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Catherine..Sorry it took so long to write our review about our amazing vacation at your very special water front home with the boat house underneath! The wide open living room offering the breath taking views of Gunstock mountain and complete open water views. The futons in the living room really came in handy when our daughter arrived with a friend. They found them to be spacious and comfortable and for us we had the back bedrooms which were perfect for our needs. The sunrise and sets were simply priceless!

Honestly you really could not be any closer to the water.. It was so relaxing especially hearing the waves splashing against the home.. Next time we will be renting a boat.. Our neighbors next door were wonderful and shared their water activities with us. We enjoyed the large dock too. We took nice little joints to the beach which was perfect off the country road only a few homes away. We have already been talking of our return trip!

Thanks again

My stay at the boat house was amazing!! Perfect location for a quick getaway, couple's retreat, or a family vacation. The views are breathtaking and there is something to do for the entire family. The house was very clean when we arrived and the beds were SUPER comfortable. Plenty of natural light from the windows in the main living room. The house is equipped with all necessary amenities (including a washer and dryer which was a HUGE plus). Very spacious as well. Highly recommend to any family. Thank for everything Cathy!

Great Place for Great Friends

  • 5 of 5

Our group cannot stop talking about our trip up to Winnisquam. We planned a (very) last minute Labor Day getaway and with Cathy's help we were able to pull it off! From the minute we arrived we enjoyed beautiful views from all cabins looking over the lake. Everyone was so comfortable with ample places to sleep and beautiful arrangements. The cabins were very clean and having the three houses allowed our large group to spread out. We enjoyed every minute on the docks, sitting at the tables on the lawn, grilling, and swimming. We rented a boat for two days and it was so great to be able to pull it up to our own docks. Our group had one day of rain but with the board games provided in the houses and with the screened in porch, we kept ourselves happy and busy. We have already booked our vacation for next year and are so excited to return! With linens provided and a washer/dryer, keeping everyone clean and organized was a breeze. Thank you again for our amazing stay up at the lake - great memories made with old high school friends on an amazing piece of property. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

We have you all set for your next vacation.. Thank you for organizing your group on such last minute notice.. Great job!! Have a safe healthy Winter season ! See you in 2018!! Cathy O P.S thanks for taking the time to tell us about your special vacation at our Water front property!

Out of this world! Pure Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Impressive! Wow, last year we stayed at the cottage in the woods (3809101) and this year we stayed in one of the main house right on the water (363369). Staying at the cabin in the woods is so much better than any camp site we have ever stayed at, so rustic. This year we wanted to stay right on the lake and was it beautiful. The lake is all around you, and made you feel like you were living on a cruise ship. There are three houses on the lot and we had our own space but meeting the other renters, I feel we have made friends for life. The house is impeccable. It is equipped with everything one would need. The boat slip was right at our front door. Although it had a great kitchen, we spent our time cooking outdoors on the BBQ grills that are supplied by Ms. Owen. My family felt like we were in heaven. We could not find a better spot to vacation and dealing with Ms. Owen was a pleasure. We will be back, but perhaps for a longer stay. We loved everything about it, the house, the location, the lake, the boat docks, just perfect. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Have a safe healthy winter see you next season! Sincerely The Owen's

Unkept and dirty

  • 1 of 5

The location of the property is lovely HOWEVER, we had issues with ants crawling in the cabinets, a filthy grill that we would never use, black filth in all of the windows, broken rusty lounge chairs on the dock. Luckily we had relatives down the road where we ended up cooking and spending our time there. Overall, we did not feel that the high price we paid was worth it. We've stayed in many other houses that offer better amenities for the same price. Perhaps if an investment of new furniture including beds and linens and kitchenware was made if would be worth the money we spent. Million dollar views maybe but less than million dollar feeling.
