Beautiful Laconia

This house was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. Caretaker was very friendly and explained everything to us. The only thing I think it could use would be a small tv in the kitchen dining area. Definitely would return or recommend to friends.

Owner's reply:

Thank you Mike for taking the time to write a review, I really appreciate it. So glad that you enjoyed the house and location, it really is ideal for Bike Week. A small t.v. in the kitchen area would be handy, good suggestion.

Its all that!!!

Stayed here in September for a long weekend - racing weekend. Cant say enough about the place. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! NOT a bad thing can be said about the place. The transaction to rent the place was very easy - and pleasant. Even had friends have a last minute change for one night and it was no problem to get in touch with owner and get approval for last minute guest. Care taker showed us around when we got there and she was wonderful to. There was 6 of us for the weekend (10 first night) and we had more than enough room. Place and property are spotless and just beautiful!!! Everything is updated and in great working condition.....just an amazing place to get away. THANK YOU for the use of your home and for an all around great experience!!!! We hope to be lucky enough to return next year ..... Thank You again!!!!! :)

Gorgeous House, Gorgeous Views

Six of us (three couples) stayed here for a week this summer and we had a great time. The hill that the house sits on is quiet and there's hardly any traffic. We enjoyed having access to the neighborhood's private beach, which was a quick 5 minute drive away. We found that, even though we had a lot of cloudy and rainy weather, we were perfectly content to hang out at the house. The house itself was great - modern, clean, and plenty of windows to let in light and the great views of the lake. The bedrooms are fairly separate from each other, so everyone felt like they had enough privacy. The only thing I could ask for? A bigger dining table that could accommodate six adults, and perhaps curtains over the bedroom door to the balcony. Everything else was perfect! Both Carolyn and Rebecca were great, we couldn't have found nicer people to rent from. Thanks so much!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Zoe for taking the time to write a review, we are so glad you had an enjoyable stay. I have noticed that cloudy or rainy weather doesn't bother me as much here either! I appreciate the suggestions. Have a great rest of the summer and hope to see you again. Take Care,

Amazing house and location- we'll be back!!

We stayed here last weekend while in town for a concert at Meadowbrook. The house was EXACTLY as advertised - great location, very spacious and clean!!! The decks and views were amazing and the bedrooms were comfy. We drove the < 1 mile to the state park road to run rather than tackle the hills ;-) but other than that and the concert I was happily planted on the deck the entire time. My friends went to the beach which was close and a great break from the heat. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet getaway close to the lake activity. We were not ready to go home. We'll definitely will be back next year for longer!!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Sheri for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the house and the activities in the area, it is such a wonderful location to make memories. Isn't the run along the lake beautiful? One of my favorite routes. We look forward to having you back, have a great rest of the summer! Take Care,

Very Comfortable

Comfortable, clean, and modern accommodations in a quiet residential area. Waking up in the morning and having breakfast on the deck with awesome views of the lake was very relaxing. Highly recommend this home for a nice get away!

Bike week vacation

The house is very lovely with awesome views. A few things to note before your stay, no Internet and only 1 working TV on the bottom floor. (Not a big deal, Internet was missed only because we wanted to look for things to do in our area) We had a great stay and Thank you very much.

Carolyn LaVerdiere

Owner's reply:

Daniel, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! We link to the free WiFi that is available for internet, thanks for mentioning this, I will make sure to inform future guests.

Awesome views!

Very nice home with great views of the lake. Was perfect for our family. Game room was a great bonus and kept everyone entertained in the evenings. Minutes away from Gunstock Mountain. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful house, great location

We first rented this house for a weekend in August 2011 and have spent two more weekends there since. We really love it! Carolyn and Rebecca, who takes care of the house, are very nice and welcoming, and the house is great: plenty of space for our group of 6 friends, beautiful decks with amazing view and lots of amenities. The area is ideal for both summer and winter vacations, with the lake and the Gunstock ski area nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed the three weekends spent in Gilford, and are planning another trip to the house this winter.

The house was just beautiful. As where the views. We were close to many attractions and restaurants that we went to. The weather was beautiful. It was very nice to have the ping pong table we played quite a bit. It was very relaxing and quite. We had a great time and if we ever were to go to that area we would for sure stay there. We were looking forward to using the hottub. But there was plenty other things to keep us busy.

Gorgeous house with spectacular views!

My husband, my two kids, ages 7 and 10, and I spent four days of our vacation at this gorgeous, spacious house with stunning views of the mountains and the lake. The decks were huge and had a nice grill and a table and chairs for relaxation. The kitchen was great and it was fully equipped with everything you need. The game room and the TV room and a closet full of toys were great for the kids. The area was convenient to Weirs beach, Fun Spot arcade, Whales Tale water park, Chucksters, restaurants and supermarket, etc. The caretaker was super nice, welcoming and very helpful as well. Overall, this comfortable, modern house was perfect for relaxing and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely house.

Carolyn LaVerdiere

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much Eunmi for sharing your thoughts on the house! We are so glad you enjoyed yourself and look forward to having you stay again. Have a wonderful rest of the summer.

Beautiful Place

My husband and two children (ages 8 and 13) stayed here for a long weekend. It was located between Gunstock and Ellacoya State Park..just where we wanted it to be. My brother and his friend also came and the house felt very spacious with the 6 of us sleeping in it. It's set high on a hill so the view of the lake are just gorgeous. The kids really enjoyed the game room and tv room on the lower level. The house is fairly new..which is always a plus. Well worth it!
