My wife and I recently rented Chris and Shelia's cottage for a week with our two kids, 3 & 7, two grandparents and 15 year old nephew. We had great weather as it was in the upper 80's and low 90's the whole week. We had one night of rain but nothing else. This allowed us to use the pond to the fullest. The owners were great as they checked in with us as we made our way up from MA and when we got to the house they meet us there to do a walk through. They actually own the house next door as well but they did not stay there during the week we were there. They were more than accommodating as they gave us a welcome gift of smores for the fire pit and even took us for a tour around the lake in their boat the first night we were there. They gave our son some fishing tips as well. The house was great for the number of people we had. Plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed the pool table in the basement and loved the screened in porch. We used it everyday for meals and relaxing in the afternoon. The pond was perfect for our kids as it was warm water and not to deep. the kids were able to swim out a bit and we didn't worry about them. Hardly any boat traffic were the house is so it is certainly quiet, especially during the week. We felt like we were the only people on the water. We brought lots of food with us so we didn't have to leave for much of anything. We took a couple of day trips into Wolfeboro, NH which was such a great little town. Nice chops to walk around in and some small restaurants to get food. We used the kayaks and canoe everyday as well. The house stayed cool even though it does not have AC. The beach area is large and great for playing ladder ball or sitting out by the fire pit. We really could not have been happier with the setup of the house, location for what we wanted, or the owners who were great. They checked in with us before we left and were very helpful. We would love to stay here again if the opportunity arises.
