Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. It is great being able to just relax looking out over the lake. The house was conveniently located to everything we needed. Our kids loved being able to play in the yard.

A beautiful lake retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this charming lake house was well beyond our expectations. What a beautiful and peaceful setting, and just an hour away from Boston. Great Pond is absolutely gorgeous. The house was spacious, airy, bright and very well furnished. Just about everything we needed was provided, all the way from an extensive line of cookware and spices to a huge library of books perfect for reading on a cool autumn day. The pond is quite large but not heavily populated and I spent many happy hours peacefully kayaking around the island observing ducks and otters. The outside deck and balconies are perfect for sitting, entertaining or just relaxing. The whole front of this house is glass sliders that look out right upon the pond, you can spend the day just relaxing or you can be in downtown Boston in a one hour drive. The owners was extremely polite and was more than happy to help in any way she could. My family had a wonderful time here ,this place is a jewel!

Lovely, secluded lake house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cute lake house. The owner was very communicative and helpful. Everything was well taken care of. The lake is nice and secluded. The neighborhood is pure New Hampshire with lots of trees.

Pleasant owners, home is showing wear

  • 3 of 5

Owners were pleasant to work with. Home is showing wear. There is ample space to gather outside as a family. Inside seating is very limited for family gathering. As such rain/cold require floor seating, the kitchen cabinets are worn and dirty inside, many lights not working in home, showers are not the cleanest, floors are worn and furniture needs good cleaning, kitchen chairs held together with zip ties. Several outside chairs torn or broken. House needs a very good cleaning overall, neighbors were friendly, pretty morning sunrise.

We would have been more than happy to send the cleaners back out to rectify the items. We rely on our renters to provide feedback and take this very seriously.

Relaxing, Just Like Home Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience, both in communicating with the owners and in all the comforts of home during our stay here. Every question was answered quickly both before and during our stay. Very reassuring. Actually you won't have many questions while staying as every anticipated need is covered in the info left by the owners and how easily it is all set up for you. We traveled all the way from Sydney, Australia to visit friends and family (as we had moved from Derry, NH to Australia a few years ago) so it was especially wonderful to arrive after 24 hours of travel to a comfy, peaceful home away from home. Waking to the gorgeous sunrises over the lake and the absolute quiet of the neighborhood was amazing. The kids enjoyed the lake, kayaking and canoeing, and even getting to swim a few days as we had some beautiful September weather. We were able to relax and let friends and family come to visit us, creating some wonderful lasting memories. Every comfort of home, comfy bedrooms, stocked kitchen, made it easy to settle in for our two week stay. Highly recommend staying here and hope to return on our next visit home.

Great place for family.... relaxing and getting back to the simple life

  • 5 of 5

We rented Amy and Eric's house in late June 2016 for a week. Upon arrival, I was relieved to find the house in the condition that the pictures showed. The house has been recently redone and is clean, modern and has everything you need. The bathrooms were clean, the bedrooms were a nice size and because of the layout of the house is very quiet upstairs when the kids are being loud downstairs and visa verse. The house is well stocked with linens, towels, pots, pans, a blender, and even basic kitchen spices, etc...

The yard, deck and lake are fantastic. The deck is large and well lit at night. There is a sand table on the deck and a picnic table for the kids. In the yard there is a swing set our kids used a ton. The fire pit was great for night time smores and family fun. The best of the best is the dock and the swimming area. My kids couldn't get enough of fishing off the dock and swimming in the shallow walk-in area of the pond. It is such a nice piece of property and the neighbors were all very nice. We would definitely return.

Although the house isn't super close to a lot of things (you aren't walking anywhere), it is close enough for short trips to some fun places. We drove 30 minutes to Portsmouth for one afternoon, we drove 20 minutes one night to Hampton beach (beautiful real beach) to watch fireworks and see the sand castle competition and another day we went to Canobie Lake Park (amusement park) and all those things were so much fun. You are close enough to restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores for anything you need.

Amy was super attentive and helpful. She addressed all of our needs and questions super quickly and was a great resource for information about the area and house. Can't say enough great things about this trip but my son said "mom this was better than Disney World!"

Do yourself a favor and rent this house for you next trip!
