Emily S. 8/13 5 Stars!

Great location to experience all that the Lake Winnipesaukee area has to offer

Beautiful views, well-stocked kitchen, room for the entire family and a short drive to Gunstock Mountain, a private beach, the boat-rental marinas and interesting dining for all pallets. We couldn't have asked for more for our vacation.

Wonderful home to stay in!

This is a wonderful property. Cute beach to enjoy down the street. Our entire family enjoyed our vacation so much. Looking forward to going back and staying here again. Thanks so much Paul & Rebecca!

Ann D. 8/7 5 Stars!

Lovely and comfortable home with drop dead gorgeous views.

Every sunrise over the lake was gorgeous. We loved the lake views from so many windows. The home is so very comfortable. Coffee every morning on the porch was the best start to the day. Great location to explore the lake. The house is great for family games and movies. We had the best time. Many thanks for super hospitality.

Refreshing and Relaxing with a touch of Fun!

We found our stay here to be quiet and peaceful with mountain and lake views as advertised. The accommodations were excellent with plenty of room and all bases covered. We were impressed with the owner's hospitality, conscientiousness, and communication. In addition to enjoying our stay at the home, we also loved our trip to the lakes region. Our trip to the private beach (complimentary with the booking) was a pleasant experience and we found plenty to do within a short drive.Our family came with high hopes and expectations. Our stay was just what we needed.

Amazing Views!

We visited the house for a group trip first time up to Lake Winnipesaukee. The House was in great condition, adequate parking, bedrooms were big, and the dining room was inviting. The kitchen was fully stocked with new pots, pans, utensils, and everything works. The Grill was large and worked well to grill steaks. We enjoyed the stay and watching movies on the large downstairs TV and comfy couch. We used the pass for the beach access and it was very close and convenient. We had a good surprise that Allacoya Restaurant was only a 10 minute walk from the house and had pretty good food and atmosphere. Overall I would definitely recommend anyone stay here. Paul (owner) was very helpful and texted me as things got closer to make sure everything was in order. There was no need to bring towels, sheets, TP, tissues, board games, etc., the house had everything and it was all well kept! Be sure to be on the decks to enjoy the views.

Beautiful house, stunning view, great location!

We had a wonderful stay! The house and the view are even more beautiful than the pictures. We were a group of 7 adults and one child, and there was more than enough room in the house for all of us, with lots of different spaces in the house and on the decks for us to enjoy meals and hang out together. The house is in a really nice location [lakes region vacation rentals], easy to access all of the activities and sites around the Lake. We didn't use the private beach, but went to the beach at Ellacoya State Park while we were there, which is really beautiful and only 2 minutes from the house. Paul and Rebecca responded quickly to all communications and provided everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this house and hope we get to stay again!!
