“Rustic camp; not for young families”
Reviewed 17 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

The location is fantastic, but everything else is not.

If your traveling with fishing buddies you'll have fun, but not suitable for families (especially with kids under 5) due to numerous safety concerns: (1) cracked lighting over kitchen sink, (2) raised nailheads all over dock, (3) metal c-clamps in bedroom nightstand, and (4) spring loaded porch doors that slam shut hard.

"Rustic camp" because everything is old and outdated (accept for internet and TV): (1) bad mattresses in mainhouse (guest cottage has nice mattress), (2) kitchen appliances are from 1950's and very small, and (3) all outlets are two prong so we needed to purchase adapters.

Advice to owner: (1) walk through the house as if you were a guest (before you rent it again; why the broken light fixture and c-clamps in night stands which are actually file cabinets?), (2) do not rent to young families unless numerous updates are made, (3) update property description to be more representative of truth and avoid unsatisfied guests.

Thank you for sharing your home, but we will stay elsewhere next time.

“Property should never have been listed under the Trip Advisor banner. Sub-par in every respect.”

The single star is for waterfront location and decent bed in guest cottage.The property is a late 1950's hunting camp - unrenovated and unimproved since then. Beds are ancient. Kitchen is original with disorganized cabinets cluttered with very old and cheap items. No cabinet space for grocery items...shelves loaded instead with at least 60 beverage and wine glasses, a single frypan of 6 inches diameter and a total of 8 dinner plates. Screen porch has no gutters, so rain renders the porch unuseable. Screen doors have no hinge anti-slamming hardware, and power outages are daily occurences from insufficient service and wiring. With lots of renovations and TLC this could become a decent vacation rental. As it is now, it is not rentable to anyone with expectations of decency. Its rental fee is beyond absurd...and Trip Advisor loses credibility and reputation.

“It all depends on what you're looking for”

Where do I begin? Let me start by saying location, location, location. If your top priority is access to the beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee (as it was mine) then this rental will not disappoint. We brought our 26 foot pontoon boat and the dock was more than able to accommodate. The private beach allows for hours of swimming and fishing.
If your priorities lean more towards the condition of the rental itself then quaint is quite an overstatement. I can sum it up this way: The breaker would trip anytime more than a few lights were in use and the box to reset the tripper was outside about 7 feet off the ground. My six foot 2 inch teenage son would have to stand on a chair just to get the power back on.

I am sorry you found the breaker issue to be such a problem. You are the first person to have this issue as the breaker usually only tripped when the washer and dryer were going at the same time. No one else has noted the breaker tripping with normal use of the cottage.
