We really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable! Everything was as expected. The house had plenty of linens and dishes, the gas grill was great. The boardwalk is just minutes away it was very accessible to everything! It was a short walk to the water we enjoyed having our boat on the dock there. The dock area is a little tricky but As long as you’re aware it’s shallow we just manually moved the boat in and out of the slip. We definitely would come again!

Nice clean cottage with all the amenities of Home walking distance to the board walk

  • 4 of 5

I’m going to be honest I was hesitant about this rental due to the bad review and the cameras but I have no regrets.The cottage was clean upon arrival and fresh linen set out.we had 6 people in our group there was plenty of room for us all.the swimming area was nice and only a 1 min walk and although it’s not a sandy beach it was just as good to set up you chairs there’s even trees you can hang under if you need some shade.also it’s a 5 min walk to the boardwalk my son and his friend both 13 enjoyed walking there for the arcades and restaurants.The dock was good for us we have a small 10 ft boat and left it tied up all week.I would recommend this cottage especially if you have young children.I just want to say thank you to Simone and Ed for letting us use your cottage and your quick response to any of our questions or needs.The rental process went smoothly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joseph for your review. Just to mention the security cameras are only put in place outtside and are there to ensure the safety of our renters in addition to making sure our renters are not exceeding our 8 person maximum occupancy. We do tend to make acceptions to that rule if the party is straightforward. We have run into problems before speaking from the bad review you are referring to . It was from a renter that well exceeded our maximum limit which resulted in complaints from our neighbors in our association . We strive to maintain a clean relaxing stay for our guests and in return expect the same treatment from our renters. Lastly the sandy beach reference was meant for the sandy lake bottom that is there. There are stairs to the swim area (lake) as well as swimming off the docks. Thank you again for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Simone and Ed

Wonderful home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently stayed in this lovely home in Weirs Beach. The house was full of amenities that a family would appreciate. Washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, and a gas grill. My teenagers loved the free access to the Wi-Fi. The boat slip was well built and easily accessed. The boardwalk was just a block or so away. The home was clean and I felt safe in the neighborhood. My family will certainly consider renting this home again next summer.

Hidden Jem!

  • 5 of 5

Nicest looking cottage in Methodist circle. Very well maintained, clean, with all the comforts of home. Perfect location close to town, but not too close. When you relax at the private swimming area you would never know that town is only a two minute walk. You get the best of both worlds all the excitement of Weirs Beach and the peace and quiet of a cozy cottage on the water.

We spent a lot of time at the private swimming area. Our two young children loved the water and swimming out to the raft and playing in the sandbox. There were other young children to play with too, which was very exciting and fun for them.

We also did some fishing off the T-Dock, enjoyed a couple awesome sunsets, and watched someone's private fireworks display from the balcony of the cottage one evening too.

Overall we had a great week, enjoyed all the amenities of the cottage, explored many of the local area attractions, and even had time to relax too. I highly recommend 30 Methodist Circle to anyone, and will most definitely plan another vacation there next year.

Owners have no compassion for their renters.

  • 2 of 5

First off, I will say the set up of the house is very nice. Now with that being said, two of the upstairs bedrooms have a strong smell of urine. And the sandy bottom swim area they speak of is difficult to get into and is not enjoyable. If you have a boat, be aware that the dock is extremely tricky to get in and out of. There are large rocks by the docks that the owners failed to tell us about, which would have been nice of them to let us know. Also make sure you are out of the house at exactly 10am or before as these owners have zero tolerance for mishaps. There are neighbors who are watching your every move and security cameras in place that the owners do not tell you about. They will be looking for any small violation to keep the security deposit. If you are considering this property I would look elsewhere first.

Owner's Response: Bad renters Security deposits are send back immediately to renters that have respected our property and have met all the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. The maximum occupancy was well exceeded by at least double, our outside security system was deliberately disabled for the purpose of exceeding the maximum occupancy. Checkout time is 10:00 and not 11:00. That extra hour resulted in an additional fee from our cleaning lady which we had to pay. In response to the urine smell we were notified by you towards the end of the week that one room smelled. Our leaning lady was immediately contacted and we asked if that room smelled after the previous renters left. Her reply was absolutely not which leads us to believe the urine smell was from the small children in your party or the small children of your extra guests. We have been straightforward with any and all questions from our renters including our docking system and waterfront. There are stairs that lead to the sandy bottom swim area and our boat slip which is a little tricky to get into can accommodate a 23' boat. We have zero tolerance for bad renters.

Weirs Beach ,walking distance
Car: recommended

Methodist Circle is in the heart of Weirs Beach. Most of Weirs beach attractions are 5 minutes or less walking distance.

Weirs Beach itself is flanked by a boardwalk lined with plenty of arcades, places to eat, and various activities. There are restrooms, and the Weirs is central to most other area attractions. Some Friday nights during the summer there are fireworks at 10pm. The rain date is the following night. The beach is wide and sandy, and stays pretty shallow out a good ways making is good for water games. Take a ride aboard the Sophie C, which is a U.S. mail boat. The boat departs from Weirs Beach, and is a sister vessel of the Mount Washington. The Sophie C is quite different than its big brother the Mount. It's lower to the water and much smaller, therefore it tends to rock slightly with the waves and just feels less like a cruise and more like a boat ride. It winds around the islands of Lake Winnipesaukee to deliver mail, and it even sells ice cream on board. It's typically more interesting for children.
