Why Janet and Rich Cocchiaro chose Holderness

We built this house to provide a space for our extended family to gather and for our growing children to share with their friends.

The House in The Pines

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house by the lake in August 2015. If I had to sum it up in only one word - MAGICAL.

First of all the surroundings - The house is right on a secluded lakefront with an absolutely stunning lake steps from the back of the house. The rural New Hampshire feel is just the perfect oposite of our crazed city living. So order of the day was lake, more lake, hiking swimming Bbq'ing and just having a great time with our two families 6 kids . The House - was absolutely magnificent, extremely well furnished and maintained and frankly speaking there is absolutely nothing to fault even slightly . Pool table, video systems, canoes, and a beautiful library with a lake view to die for. There must be at least 6 or 7 spacious bedrooms (i didnt count and would be hard pressed to find them all!!)

Rich and Janet were exceedingly welcoming and frendly , and helped with everything we needed, including local tour advice and more.

In short this is one rental that will definitely exceed your expectations by far. without a doubt we will be back for more.!!

Beautiful peaceful site with lots of space and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with many thanks to this fantastic site and space. Swimming in the peaceful, clear lake, sitting on the deck porch and enjoying games in the enclosed porch on a rainy day were just a few of the highlights. We prepared all of our meals in the terrific kitchen. Also while the property was secluded, access to many attractions was very easy. We all came away refreshed and renewed.

Wonderful house & owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

Background - we are an active family of 4 (2 adults, 2 adult children) and rented this house for a week in July (2018). The property didn't dictate this but we had exceptional weather so we were outside on the lake every day. Let me start with my ONLY critique of this wonderful property...for such a large house there is only one TV...forcing TV watchers to their laptops when more than one show was in demand. Now for everything else. This house is gorgeous. Plenty of space, numerous bedrooms and bathrooms, spread out living spaces (so if you want privacy you can find it but rooms large enough to hold a gathering...or a small family), beautiful kitchen, game room (pool table), well manicured yard, working gas grill, private and extremely peaceful lake (if you want hustle and bustle DON'T rent this house), lake front backyard with a nice new dock and a floating dock swimming distance from shore. And my favorite room - a large screened in porch (I'm sure I'm missing something). The house is down a private road and it is extremely quiet and secluded...yet only a short (5 - 10 mile) drive from shopping and restaurants. The owners (Janet & Rich) live nearby and welcomed us upon arrival (helpful to explain some of the house's nuances) and were responsive to any issues that arose (e.g., the wifi went down and Janet had it fixed within 30 minutes of our text) and our questions about the area (e.g., best places to buy souvenirs). But in my mind the fact that the house had almost everything included (glasses, plates, utensils, towels, beach towels, outdoor chairs, kayak and canoe, etc.) made it so that we could pack lighter than usual AND immediately enjoy our vacation once there rather than running around to pick up some missing items (hard to put a price on that). If back in the Lake Winni area we would absolutely rent this house again (if Janet and Rich would have us)! Lovely!!!

Clean, beautiful, large

right on the water, hottest week of the year but air-conditioned was much appreciated. Our whole family gathered there for our second year. If we returned, you know we loved it.

Quiet get-away on waterfront

  • 4 of 5

Large, well-equipped home that met all our needs. Appreciate the use of owners kayak & canoe on the very quiet White Oak Pond just across the way from Squam Lake. No beach for young kids, but they did enjoy the floating raft. Fishing was excellent, but fish very small. Close to Center Harbor and Meredith shops. Took a great hike over at nearby Squam Lake.
