  • Very peaceful week:)

    "My 2 sons and I stayed at the cottage for a week in July. We were blessed with great weather. Owners were very nice and accommodating, living locally. Cottage was neat, tidy, well stocked and organized. We loved the location on the lake, which was in a cove area. Location was perfect for kayaking ( 2 are provided) without lots of wind or boats to make the waters rough. Dock was easy to moor a boat for tubing. Appreciated the window a/c unit on a couple warmer days. Would definitely recommend as a rental! Thanks Jeff and Joanne:)"

  • More than we expected...

    "The Howard home was more than we expected for our family vacation. The house is fully stocked, sheets, towels, pillows, etc., even the kitchen has essentials and then some, I always bring tons of stuff from home, cheese grater, wine opener, etc., none of it was necessary, they think of everything! This is all on top of paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, pontoon boat (which was great to cruise around in and swim in the pond from), games, grounds, etc. The amount of space in the house was more than we needed, but it was nice to have space to spread out. There was something for everyone to do and the little town of Wayne does not disappoint either. Super cute general store and you MUST go to "Tubbie's" for ice cream, we admittedly went more than once. Mr. Howard was available on a moment's notice for questions and guidance while we were there. Terrific experience and super grateful that we had the time together as a family. Thank you from the Doug & Stacy Gooding & Family, Beverly, MA."

  • Look No Further!

    "We rented this house the first week of August 2016. The owners, Alice & Eli, were a pleasure to work with and quickly answered all of our questions. Alice was waiting for us at the house the first day and gave us the tour and highlights of things we should know. The house is beautiful. We especially enjoyed the large screened porch, the well-designed kitchen and the huge walk-in shower. This house has lots of charm and character and seems much more like someone’s year-round residence than a vacation rental. There are beautiful antiques, shelves overflowing with books and everything needed for a comfortable vacation week. There’s no Wi-Fi but we had good coverage through our Verizon phones. We spent many hours kayaking on Bryant Pond (AKA Lake Christopher). The lake is assessable by a steep natural path to a set of docks. There’s no beach but there is a ladder that made getting out of our kayaks relatively easy. The lake is fairly large and there were limited power boats and no jet skis on the lake while we were there. The house is a very short distance off a main road with a great convenience store (plus ice cream and delicious pizza) moments away. We’ve vacationed in this area many times over the past years and enjoy the location for its proximity to the North Conway NH area and the availability of ‘civilization’ in the nearby towns of Oxford, Norway, Paris and Bethel. (Be sure to visit the Hungry Hollow Country Store on your way or on one of your tips out! Also check out Brian’s Bistro in Rumford.) You should know that there is an active rail line across the street from the house. A single freight train comes through each weeknight between 10 and 11. We enjoyed the sights and sounds as it came and went out each night to watch it pass by. You should also know that there is a house next door that rents to groups of up to 24 people. We had the ‘neighbors from hell’ during our week that put a serious damper on the quality of our vacation. Eli noted that issues from there are rare. Your results should vary. Overall excellent!"
