Perfect for waterfront fun with kids!
Our family has been vacationing together for five years, giving the children (4 cousins, now ages 7-12) and parents and grandparents time each year to play and relax. When we went looking online to plan this year's vacation, what attracted us most to this house were the photos showing the beach area which appeared to be very sandy and very close to the house. Sometimes it is difficult to get a great representation of a house and its beach access in photos but we were so pleased to discover when we arrived that the photos had represented this house very accurately. The beach access was fantastic! By far, the best we've had in all the homes we've rented. What we absolutely loved about this house was that the sandy beach and expansive shallow swimming area was so close to the house that the adults could actually sit on the deck of the house or in the sunny breakfast room/dining room and watch the kids swim without needing to pack up a thing to "go to the beach". The water was also so shallow for a very long way out that the kids could play very freely without worries about them going too deep. We also loved that there was a dock for our motor boat (that we brought with us) and a very accessible location across the lake to put the boat in and out. The house itself is situated on a fairly quiet part of the lake which made it very safe and pleasant to take the kids out tubing. Although the nearby houses were very close and lots of neighbors had boats too, we barely saw any of the neighbors for the entire two weeks we were there so we were happy with the level of privacy. The landlords were very accessible and responsive to any assistance we needed and the outdoor area was very well set-up for hanging out by a fire at night or enjoying the water during the day. The property was clean and the recently updated kitchen was a terrific bonus. The sunny "breakfast room/dining room" with seating for 8 was one of our favorite places to hang out and the upstairs master bedroom with private deck was really a lovely room. There is a large grocery store within 10 minutes of the house which was very convenient and it isn't more than a half hour to towns with more attractions like Wolfboro... if you ever feel like leaving the lake. We would definitely recommend this home, especially to families with young kids who want to spend lots of time in the water.
