Adorable small cabins with two double beds and a kitchenette. The kitchen has a microwave and frig. It is stocked with dinnerware and utensils, coffee pot and toaster. They have a large screen porch. The cabins are simple, no TVs, heat or AC, but you get a clock radio and a big fan! Outside we have grills, fire pits, chairs and picnic tables. These cabins are excellent for an affordable family reunion for as little as $450 (before 9% tax) you can rent all three cabins for two nights! Think about the possibilities!! Birthdays, anniversaries, etc... spent with family and friends at the lake! We are pet friendly, however for the comfort of all guests we have a few mandatory rules. Only dogs under 40 pounds, all dogs must be in crates if left unattended, and can not bark excessively. They can not be left alone for more than 4 hours. They can not be tied up outside unattended. A one time flat pet fee of $25.00 per pet, is charged. If you follow these rules, we would love for you to bring your furry family member! MR# 034674

Extremely cozy cabins, very clean and home felt environment. Shower house was spotless. Great area.
I booked a weekend at the cabins for a birthday surprise for my girlfriend. Upon first arrival Joyce and Peg were both extremely helpful and informative for the area and things to do. I mentioned to them it was my girlfriends birthday and there were happy birthday balloons on the door for her (not per my request) just showing how much they wanted us to feel welcome. Additionally we loved our time in the cabin. Extremely clean, and felt like a little home on the lake. Beautiful cooking and fire pit area, and the cabin we stayed in had a porch to sit and relax anytime. The showerhouse was spotless and had great pressure. I would recommend this cabin site to anyone from a young couple traveling to anyone looking to go hike or be in the Alton area. Great time and thank you to both Joyce and Peg, for setting up a beautiful site for people to relax and enjoy! For sure will be back next summer!
Thank you so much for the kind review Brendan. You were excellent guests and we look forward to your next visit!

Very clean, and located a short walk to food and entertainment
Classic cottages with with views of Alton Bay. Clean cabins and shower building with ample out door seating and picnic tables located around the cabins. Located a short walk for the downtown area with plenty of dining options.
The property is beautiful, the lake, the trees everything was perfect.
We had a family emergency that turned into a death in the family while we were in flight, I was in contact with Joyce so she knew the reason for our trip and the last minute booking. She gave us the cabin we would be most comfortable in and made the stay more relaxing for us. Was such a hard and sad trip, but being able to come back to the cabin, relax, sit by the fire if weather permitted was an amazing gift to us. We will be back for longer next time! There is no heat as the description says, so if you are from a warm environment like we are bring your warmer clothes! We will be back.
Thank you Shirley for the kind review, i’m sorry your visit was for such a sad reason. We really hope to see you another time for just a getaway vacation.

Overall wonderful experience! Cozy cabins makes you feel like you're camping except no tents! yay! Great to feel all the benefits of the outdoors while still having a cabin:)
Thank you so much for your review! You described our cozy cabins to a tee. Hope we see you next year!

Quaint and super clean!
My boyfriend and I needed to find a cabin quick for the Memorial Day weekend and came across these ones. Best decision we ever made. The owner there is very friendly and informative, the cabin was cleaner than I've ever imagined and settled right across Alton Bay. We will definitely be back.
We hope you both visit again real soon!

I have given a rating of four out of five because it was a nice cottage but…
We have the whole place to ourselves no other guests which made it nice. However I think if more people were there it would almost be crowded. Not a lot of privacy between cottages. Would be great for a family reunion where you rent the whole place out.
Also found the cooking facilities difficult. A toaster and coffee maker and that's it. Even the barbecue was not propane so to cook something on it you had to get charcoal heat it up, not very convenient.
I have stayed at a lot of places using this website and enjoy them all this one was just a little underwhelming.
I'm sorry you found our accommodations “underwhelming.” In fairness to us, you asked for privacy and I clearly told you the cabins are not far away from each other (15' +/-) You were clearly told there was no stove, only a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, utensils etc... that is also clearly listed in our ad. It is also clear in our ad there is no propane grills, only charcoal grills. During your stay, we had 6 of the 8 cabins rented, you were not the only guests there, I think that speaks to the privacy. This is our off season, during the summer all the cabins are rented each weekend, and I have never received a complaint of lack of privacy. I offered you a more private cabin with a full kitchen, you refused the offer. My cabins are $75 in the Bay, the only way to keep those rates low, is to Keep Life Simple, and all our loyal returning customers like it that way. In the future please read the correspondences and descriptions better, so you can enjoy your vacation. We are what we are, Clean, Simple, Cabins and we enjoyed catering to those folks who love to get back to the basics.
Additional information about rental rates
The rates are based on two people. $15 per person after two. Maximum four people. If you pay the balance at check in we only accept cash.
