Perfect family vacation! The house itself was so comfy, cozy, and clean! The location was so convenient and the property so beautiful! We loved that you could do as little or as much as you wanted! So relaxing! The property was also well-appointed with kayaks, paddleboard, and paddle boat! Owners were very accessible, caring, and easy to communicate with!
We were looking for a quiet, comfortable cottage to get away for our 40th anniversary with our 2 dogs for leaf peeping season. Cottages of Wolfeboro was the exact match. Cottage #10 is a 1 bedroom with a very good bed and plenty of room for us and our dogs. Our stay in the area was fantastic, in great part by the property manager Jody. Anyone staying at the cottages should seek her out as soon as you arrive. She recommended a few good restaurants which were all great and was very knowledgeable about the area. If there is anything you need she takes care of it immediately. She is a huge asset to the Cottages and made our stay great.
If you have dogs or are a walker or biker, find the Cotton Valley Rail Trail which runs behind the cottages along Front/Back Bay, (called Front on some maps and Back on others) , which in one direction runs right into main street Wolfeboro, and the other way for 12 miles all the way around Lake Wentworth. It is flat and groomed all the way and beautifully scenic. We also took a hike up Turtleback mountain which took about 2 hours up a sometimes pretty steep grade on very well maintained trails to the scenic overlook at the top of the Blue Oak ridge trail. We recommend starting with the yellow trail just below the parking lot at Castle in the Clouds. The overlook is fantastic. You can see the whole North end of Winnipesaukee and you actually look slightly down at Castle in the Clouds.
We would highly recommend Mexican food at El Centauria (?spelling) and if you are going to grill at the cottage, find Mill Street Meat Market for the best marinated sirloin tips and marinated chicken we have ever had. (Also recommended by Jody)
We are absolutely returning to The Cottages and are planning to book 3 cottages for us and our 2 sons for waterskiing in the bay.
