Myself and 15 other people spent last weekend here, and we absolutely loved it!! Not only is the house gorgeous, but it's expansive and caters to having a great time! It has something for everyone, aside from its updated interior, it has scenic views, 3 docks, a cove to swim in, kayaks, a row boat, a camp fire, a game room, and an outdoor living space.

Both the owner and the boat driver were courteous and wonderful to work with, eager to help and answer questions in a prompt manner.

I sincerely hope to make this a yearly destination.

Hello Jim & Steve, My friends and I had a truly amazing experience at your island house. What a property, what a house!! It was absolutely universal among the group that they had never experienced such a unique and well-crafted custom lake house like this one. Thank you for sharing it with us. We are already trying to find another weekend to rent it.......
EVERYONE was blown away with your craftsmanship. From the fireplace to the kitchen, to the back house TV game room, to the thickness of the doors! What a place! Thank you for sharing. Until next time, Dan

Dear Jim, we had a marvelous time last week.   I'm sorry it took so long to write to you.  Plenty of room, quiet nights, peaceful days. My son, his wife and children would go out in their rented boat every day and not come back until dinnertime.   Perfect!   Anyway, thank you for letting us use the place.

A "WOW" vacation!!! Our entire family of 15 gathered  together for a family reunion at this lovely vacation home.  Words cannot express the wonderful time we had there.  The people who own the home were wonderful and kind.  The house is beautiful and everyone loved it.  With the addition of the bunkhouse the grandkids had their own space.  It is a place where everyone can relax  and have their own space if they choose to do so.  I love "Loons" and the loons would appear in the early morning.  This sounds of the loons at night gave a peaceful air and relaxing feeling. Beautiful clear water for swimming, kayaking and boating.  It is all here!  You won't be disappointed if you choose this as your vacation!

This was a memorable vacation, and well worth the expense. This is a very special, unique property. You've seen the pictures: the house is a work of rustic art, but beautifully functional. It was the heat wave of July 2013, and all my Boston friends were jealous. The water was glorious and 15 steps from the porch which caught the breezes of the peninsula. The guesthouse provided just the right degree of separation for teenagers. The island setting was peaceful but just a 4 minute boat ride to a mainland parking lot, so we never felt trapped. We had some beautiful, dramatic thunderstorms roll in; a cool thing to watch from the porch. Neither adults nor teenagers, nor 6 year old ever felt bored, yet we all returned refreshed. The owners were gracious and trusting. Upon departure, I forgot some paddles that belonged to the Marina, and Steve immediately gave me a boat lift back to recover them. This trip was a privilege and pleasure. Thank You Bev, Jim, and Steve.

We found the rental online and were intrigued by the photos. We contacted the owners and they directed us to a website with many detailed photos of the property. It was everything the photos showed and more and was very well maintained. The property is unique and quite beautiful and is accessed by boat within a small private inlet shared with one other property. The owners were very friendly and helpful with us getting set up the first day and following up with us after we left. All of the members of our family that were able to make it, about 20 people, had a place to sleep. There was plenty of kayaking, swimming, and boating during the day. We listened to the loons and frogs during the evening, and it was nice and quiet during the night. Plenty of private places to read and play games. We saw a bald eagle drop down in front of the inlet to the house and carry off a large fish one afternoon as we were swimming. There were a few ducks and ducklings that we saw daily as they swam by. My father took the grandkids to the dock to fish in the mornings and evenings. We all had a wonderful time and we'll never forget this trip. Our family lived nearby when we were growing up and we have great memories of Lake Winnipesaukee when we visited Ellacoya State Park and climbed Mount Major. The lake is absolutely gorgeous with lots of islands and wide open areas on the water, and it is surrounded by mountains. This trip reinforced everything we love about the area and we definitely plan on visiting again. I strongly recommend this vacation rental.

This was an amazing weekend for us - your home truly felt like our own. It was incredibly special for our family from New York, Detroit and LA to be together with no distraction. We truly will never forget our stay - the setting is magical and we loved everything. Steve, you went above and beyond to make sure that our weekend went off without a hitch and we will always be grateful. Thank you!

We had an awesome time this week in your home. The house is beautiful and my whole family and I had a great time. The house is in a great spot and my cousins and I would swim to the rock and back whenever we were bored.We would spend most of the day in the water and at night we would make s'mores and sit by the fire. Thank you for having us at your beautiful home.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home. We came from all over the USA to be together and we couldn't have picked a better spot. We will never forget this island, the house and all the fun we had here. Thank you and best wishes.
