This is a wonderful place for a family vacation!
This well maintained, clean, air conditioned home provides ample space and opportunities for families to gather and enjoy each others' company in multiple locations-the living room-dining room area, the finished basement, the back deck, and the orchard in front of the home. The refrigerators provide ample space for food and beverages.The association's property offered our grandchildren the opportunity to ride their bikes, shoot some hoops, and swing and climb on the playground equipment. The private beach and pavilion are a fun golf cart ride or walk from the house. Lyda's home is a beautiful, private location to enjoy an amazing lake and the surrounding area.
Thank you, Mary Jane! It was nice to welcome you and your family back to my home on Newfound Lake for the second summer. I'm glad everyone had a fun time and hope you will return again soon!
Memorable Family Vacation!
We had a wonderful family vacation with our two children and our grandchildren at this beautiful home on Newfound Lake. The house was clean and comfortable and my daughter remarked that the pictures on line didn't do it justice. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and utensils and we wanted for nothing. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The children loved running and playing in the open areas around the house. They especially enjoyed the water and my five year old grandson finally felt comfortable enougn to paddle all the way to the dock with his life vest on by Thursday. This was a very big step for him as he wouldn't even take his shoes off until then. My heart soared to see the smile on his face whenever he was in the water thereafter. Thank you, Lyda, for making good your home so welcoming!
Thank you so much for your kind words, Peggy! It makes my heart smile to hear about your grandson conquering his water fear on Newfound Lake, and to picture your grandchildren playing on our expansive lawn. I'm glad you found my home inviting and comfortable. I hope you'll come back for another stay!
Lots of Privacy
Loved the home and the location; very private, well stocked kitchen, great beds and overall great home. The only downside I saw was that the beach is very small and very "clique". They were not very welcoming the first few days, but softened up as the week went by and they saw that although we were outsiders we were still "okay people". In addition, with little kids along there was not much else to do but the beach, unless you wanted to travel a little distance. I would definitely return there but with a different group of people.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you loved my home; as you could tell, I furnished it for myself and my family, not as a rental. I'm not sure of the ages of your children, but there's a huge lawn for playing around my home, and the community has a playground, basketball court and tennis courts. I'm sorry the permanent residents didn't make you feel welcome at first, but am glad they warmed up to you. My home is one of the few available to rent in Whittemore Shores. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!!!
We love this place!
This is a wonderful house on a beautiful lake! We stayed here with my parents when visiting them in NH from Seattle and had a wonderful visit! The house is much bigger than it looked from the outside. Lots of sleeping space, a good size kitchen, dining area and living room. It also has a large deck with a gas grill and a HUGE yard for our kids to run around in. It was clean and pretty well stocked as well. The swimming area is a very short walk away, but the owners generously left us a golf cart for driving down as well. This was a huge hit with the kids! Also a huge hit: the sandy beach, large gazebo and raft in the crystal clear waters of Newfound Lake. We had such a great time and will definitely be back! Oh and one thing not mentioned in the description: if you have a baby this place would be great. I noticed a crib, high chair, pack n play and a stroller!
Upon walking into the property we were met with a clean and organized home with all the amenities we would need. It was such a comfortable relaxing stay! The house is close to the lake, downtown Bristol and hiking. The house is not right next door to another home like the homes right on the lake so you have peace and quiet and privacy. Lyda, the owner, is very responsive and accommodating. She was eager to make our stay the very best it could be! I would not hesitate to stay in this home again. Newfound Lake is absolutely beautiful and one of the most beautiful places I have visited. I am a lifetime fan!
