5th time that we have gathered at Samoset for Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time that we, 25 of us with 4 units, have used Debbie's unit. It is well appointed, and makes it easy with a central location to the other 3 units that we rented for everybody to get together easily. We are thinking again of next Summer. We have been to Samoset 5 times in the last 10 years. There are just so many activities in the area, as well as the Pool and the Lake for fishing, tubing, water skiing, and cruising to some of the islands for lunch. We would rent Debbie's unit again if 2018 comes together and her unit is available.

Samoset is s perfect place to rest, to play, to swim, and to explore the surrounding area.

There is so much to do in the surrounding and just not enough time. From beautiful views, clear water, challenging hikes, memories can be made that will last a lifetime.

Great weekend on the lake with family

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely time at the Samoset. Despite being a few rows back from the waterfront, this location is perfect for access to the Samoset's beach, pool, and all of the association's amenities. The house was tidy, well-supplied, and perfect for our group of 4 adults. It was great to have wifi access and full cable as well, particularly given a spurt of rain during our stay. It also was unseasonably humid while we were in town, and having central air was lovely!

We booked somewhat last minute, and Debbie was wonderfully responsive and accommodating. Even throughout our stay, I reached out with a number of questions via text, and Debbie was always quick to reply. We try to coordinate a weekend stay in the lakes region every summer, and I would definitely come back again!

Great relaxing vacation !

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Samoset Resort... I have stayed in quite a few places in Gilford in the same part of the lake and I think Samoset and this condo were GREAT !

I have stayed at this same condo TWICE now this summer and each time I have arrived to an extremely clean and roomy condo..... the first time I rented for a 30th high school reunion and had a fun time on the Mount Washington... the second time was just this past Labor Day weekend and came with family .. we had nice weather and the kids had a blast at the arcade, Ellacoya State Park (beach) 1/2 mile away and the drive in too !!

The residents were very friendly and the grounds and views are gorgeous !

I have been on Home Away also for the Gilford area and find that this condo was very affordable for the size and location....

The owner has been so friendly and helpful to me for both stays..... I would DEFINITELY rent this condo again and recommend it to friends or relatives

Where do you live?

The place was perfect for our weekend with friends!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as the website described, open and spacious. Although not on the water, it was a very short walk. The checkin/checkout procedure was simple and easy, and the owner was friendly and easy to work with.

We would stay here again.
