About Brian Dennett
The Dennett family are missionaries serving in Guatemala with AMG International. To learn more about their ministry visit amgguatemala website. We moved to Guatemala in Jan. of 2009 and return each summer to our beloved Alton Bay. Our original cottage was lost to a fire in 2009, and we purchased this property in 2011. We love the home and we've added touches from Guatemala here and there throughout.
Brian Dennett purchased this House in 2011
Why Brian Dennett chose Alton Bay
The Alton Bay Christian Conference Center is a paradise for Christian families or couples that want to get away for a weekend or entire week. There is no more affordable way to get away to Lake Winnipesaukee and enjoy the many amusements, outdoor activities and nature surrounding us. Our home is perfect for kids and they will absolutely love running around the entire property, swimming at our private beach and enjoying company with other children.

A comfortable cottage in a picturesque area
I have been coming to Alton Bay Christian Campground my whole life. Although our old family cottage is no longer there, I still come back to rent every summer. This is a great place for families, with a playground, ball field and a private, beautiful beach. The cottages range from very rustic to modern and newly built. This one is well-maintained and fairly roomy (some can be tiny) with a pretty little waterfall outside which you can hear from the screened-in porch when you open the windows. The owners have been very responsive and we have rented here twice. Many of the cottages have no AC (we never did, growing up) but this one does have several in the windows and plenty of fans, also a TV and DVD player. The beach is only a few minutes' walk down the hill. This is a conservative area but the people are friendly and we've never had trouble following the campground rules. Also, it is nice to know that one will be in a community where good behavior is expected of everyone. And, of course, Lake Winnipesaukee is a lovely place; here you have the private Back Bay beach and, five minutes' walk off the campground, also the public Front Bay beach areas as well, with plenty of swimming and boating.
It was o.k.
Although the house was nice there were a few things thay were not. There are no air conditioners in the upstair bedrooms and it was very hot & humid. Some of ended up sleeping downstairs on the couches & floor. The one AC they had was not enough for the whole house. The stairs we very loud & squeaked everytime you went up & down them. That was a big problem in the morning & night. I'm a very earlier riser and was very hard to be quite. I did not expect to have to clean up so much before I left. For the amount of the rental you wouldn't think you would have sweep, vacuum & clean the bathrooms. This part I blame myself for not reading the rental agreement better. The over all grounds and beach were very nice. We did enjoy our stay in New Hampshire and we will go back, but I will do a better job at looking for a place to rent.
We have added air conditioning in the master and guest bedrooms. We're very sorry that our squeaky stairs bothered you, we had never had complaints about that before, but will look into how they might be tightened up. It is an older cottage but we have consistently updated and maintained it well. We also have chosen to keep our rent extremely low for the area in order for families to access all the fun things to do here! We have rented for years, privately through our association and have renters that come back year after year... this was of just one of a few rentals we've done through VRBO and our first review.
The Christian Conference Center where our home is located has Saturday night Christian concerts in July and August and many youth activities, VBS programs and children's activities through the summer.
