  • Good not great

    3/5

    Pros-This property has an incredible view of the lake and mountains. There is a beautiful dining room table and cozy living area and enclosed porch.The master bedroom is large and the bedding is quite comfortable.

    Location was great for easy day trips to Franconia Notch, the Kank scenic drive and up to North Conway, Portsmouth and a drive along the coast.

    Cons-

    There is a lot of noise from the road. It did quiet down most of the night and there are white noise machines there, but you are basically a car length from a busy road.

    There is no dishwasher, at least while we were there. We were told a renovation of the kitchen was beginning the next day.

    It needs a detailed cleaning. It was mostly adequate except for the upstairs bathroom floor which we called about. Tammy was apologetic and sent someone the next morning to redo it and we met that person on our way out for the day. When we returned the floor was exactly the same, including a wad of hair and visible debris. When I sent a text asking what happened, she said the cleaner told her it looked fine. Needless to say we didn’t walk barefoot or shower in that bathroom.

    The windows and screens needed a thorough cleaning to really maximize the enjoyment of the view. This was disappointing and annoying since the weather was a little cool for sitting outside and we were there for that view!

    Overall it seemed like it was the off season for this cottage and they didn’t really care if everything was ship shape or not.

    Manager's Response:

    Owner's Response: "Hi Kimberly, Thanks for the review and the feedback. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - Yes, the home is on a road that can become busy during certain hours of the day. You will see that other reviews have mentioned this as well, so we include a picture of the front of the home, including the road.
    - Pre-renovation, there was not a dishwasher, nor did the listing state that there was one, therefore I apologize for any miscommunication that you may have received. Post renovation, we did add a dishwasher for our guests to enjoy.
    - Regarding the floor in the bathroom, the vinyl flooring was old and therefore, had a couple of small gouges and scratches on it. We've since renovated the bathroom and it now has high-quality tile so that will no longer be an issue.
    - Your concerns about the windows were also taken care of, as the home now has new windows throughout. We hope this addresses your concerns and look forward to hosting you again!"

    Fantastic time at this house. The hosts had everything we needed there and it's was so comfortable to hang out insideand outside while being near anything we wanted in town or on the lake. Would definitely stay here again.

  • wonderfully equipped house!!

    4/5

    beautifully maintained house with spectacularviews and right on the lake. Loved the house amenities- everything you could possibly wantwas right there.would have given this 5+ stars except fordifficulty of older family members not having easy access to the dock and downstairs bedroom( steep staircase inside) and no railings on steps to the dock( only access to water for swimming)only other drawback to house was its location on busy Rte 11- Mt Major highway..the bedroom fronting thst road was extremely noisyall night( unfortunately we didn’t see the“sound machine” in the room until we werecleaning up to leave. I’m sure it would have helped immensely)The waterfront side of the house was wonderful so private and peaceful.

    4/5

    We had a lovely stay, a bit disappointed that there were no paddle boards available as the listing said they were included (we would have brought our own). The location was gorgeous with a million dollar view but not an ideal swimming spot for kids, not easily accessible and the shallow area was rocky. My teens just jumped off the dock but it was deep on that side. Tons of nice touches like board games, books, cleaning supplies etc.. very well stocked. We would stay here again.
