About Allison

We are a family that enjoys NH during all seasons. Although we live and work in MA, we love to escape to NH for summer fun, fall foliage, winter skiing and down time with family and friends.

You will find this home is suited for friends and family gatherings, ski getaways, summer relaxation, 4 season fishing, and kayaking spring, summer and fall. For the last 14 years we have enjoyed the many lakes region and white mountain attractions as our kids have grown up camping in Meredith NH. Although we thoroughly enjoy this home a few times during the year we continue to camp and play in NH.

One of our new past-times is maintaining this home and making it an enjoyable experience for our guests.

Allison purchased this house in 2011

Why Allison chose Lake Winnipesaukee

We have camped in and loved this area for escaping with friends and family since 1998. In 2011 we were fortunate to purchase this home and have renovated throughout. Every attempt has been made to set this home up for a successful rental experience. Guests are valued customers and we look forward to your reviews and feedback.

The location offers a quiet beautiful setting while being close to all the attractions and supply stores etc.

What makes this house unique

The new multi-tier decking is fabulous. You will spend countless hours enjoying the views and watching the wildlife and lake front activities. Inside and out you will enjoy views throughout your stay. Any inclined early birds will view some spectacular sunrises....then we suggest you take the kayaks out while you watch/listen as the birds, loons and wildlife come alive.....or sleep in and catch the Weirs Beach fireworks if that is more your style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hi Allison,

I just got back to the office today. I wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in your beautiful home. The weather was perfect and there wasn't anything we needed, because your home is stocked so well. The kids had a blast in the water, and the adults were grateful for the dock because we had the opportunity to use someone's boat which allowed us to venture over to the sandbar and the Naswa for some adult fun. We spotted a bald eagle 3 times during the week and were in awe at its beauty. Your neighbor was very friendly. All in all it was a peaceful and relaxing week. One of the kids left you a piece of art that she painted as a thank you. Hope you get to see it. Again thank you so much for a wonderful family vacation." - Thank you Judy for sending this email. We love the painting left on our mantle! So glad you all had an enjoyable stay.

Spent a week in June 2017

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of June at this wonderful home celebrating my in-laws 50th anniversary. The house has everything needed to make your stay a pleasant one.The location gives good access to everything in and around Lake Winnipesaukee. The views from the deck every morning were stunning.

The family did quite a bit of fishing and kayaking while we were there and we made it over to the small beach on Paugus Bay for some swimming. We headed to Gunstock and zip lined and did all the other activities they offer. I also managed to play a few rounds of golf at a couple of local courses. The ladies did some shopping in Contoocook and Meredith and some of the group also got over to Wolfeboro as well. We cooked most nights at the house but we did go the "O" Steak House in Laconia for dinner and would highly recommend it (thanks for the recommendation Allison).

My brother in-law left a few of his life jackets at the house and Rob and Allison were very kind in assisting with the return of them to him. Allison was very responsive to all of our questions and was timely with her responses. The family was very pleased with our stay and I don't think we could have asked for a nicer home to have rented for our gathering. Thank you very much Rob and Allison .

Beautiful, warm, relaxing, with every amenity you could want!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just spent one of the most relaxing, lovely weeks of vacation we've had in a long time in this beautiful home. Every day we woke up to the combined view of cove and bay just outside our back door. We kayaked galore and spent lazy afternoons floating in inner tubes and swimming in the cove. We ate every lunch and dinner on the deck, feeling the breeze and listening to the birds and the boats. We spent evenings in the hot tub and around the fire. Our 3 teenagers declared it one of the best vacations we've had! Our hosts have provided everything you could want, from outdoor toys to kitchen tools to DVDs to comfy beds. We explored the surrounding towns a little bit - there are so many cute areas to discover! - but what we really enjoyed was being back at the house, on the deck or in/on the water. Thank you to our hosts, who've thought of pretty much everything families could want or need. We hope to be back!

Great for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is right on the water and has a fully stocked kitchen. Plenty of sleeping space will provide privacy for the adults and the bunk room will give the little ones a great space for pajama parties. The outdoor grill is great fo cooking and the deck has plenty of room for eating and relaxing. Overall a great week for our family trip

Beautiful home/location with lots of activities

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay - The house was just beautiful and fit our group perfectly. Despite the cold time of year (end of Oct), we even took the canoe/kayaks out for a quick spin and got the absolute best view of the foliage. The hosts were great, flexible with our check in and check out times. One of our group accidentally left their baby monitor at the house and the hosts so kindly went out of their way to send the monitor back to it's owners! Would certainly stay here again if we make our way back to the area.

We echo the other 5 star reviews. The photos don't lie. We also had three generations for our 50th anniversary celebration. The kids loved the waterfront which is calm and user friendly as opposed to the big water lake. Went to the drive-in movie for novelty experience for the kids, rented pontoon boat with operator (no boating license nightmare) at EkAL-Meridith as well as paddleboards for a day (well worth it). Highly recommend Hart's Turkey Farm for any catering needs. Robb & Allison have thought of everything. Don't overthink this . Just GO!

Our entire family, with kids and grandchildren, spent the last week of July 2016 at this fabulous house. This was our 5th consecutive summer vacation at this house.

We had a great week, and the weather was excellent. We never get tired of spending our vacation at this house, with plenty to do with swimming in the cove, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, and riding the train at nearby Weirs Beach.

Thank you again, Allison and Robb, for allowing us to stay at your house and enjoying a fantastic family vacation.
