Upon walking into the property we were met with a clean and organized home with all the amenities we would need. It was such a comfortable relaxing stay! The house is close to the lake, downtown Bristol and hiking. The house is not right next door to another home like the homes right on the lake so you have peace and quiet and privacy. Lyda, the owner, is very responsive and accommodating. She was eager to make our stay the very best it could be! I would not hesitate to stay in this home again. Newfound Lake is absolutely beautiful and one of the most beautiful places I have visited. I am a lifetime fan!
This is a wonderful house on a beautiful lake! We stayed here with my parents when visiting them in NH from Seattle and had a wonderful visit! The house is much bigger than it looked from the outside. Lots of sleeping space, a good size kitchen, dining area and living room. It also has a large deck with a gas grill and a HUGE yard for our kids to run around in. It was clean and pretty well stocked as well. The swimming area is a very short walk away, but the owners generously left us a golf cart for driving down as well. This was a huge hit with the kids! Also a huge hit: the sandy beach, large gazebo and raft in the crystal clear waters of Newfound Lake. We had such a great time and will definitely be back! Oh and one thing not mentioned in the description: if you have a baby this place would be great. I noticed a crib, high chair, pack n play and a stroller!
We had a wonderful family vacation with our two children and our grandchildren at this beautiful home on Newfound Lake. The house was clean and comfortable and my daughter remarked that the pictures on line didn't do it justice. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and utensils and we wanted for nothing. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The children loved running and playing in the open areas around the house. They especially enjoyed the water and my five year old grandson finally felt comfortable enougn to paddle all the way to the dock with his life vest on by Thursday. This was a very big step for him as he wouldn't even take his shoes off until then. My heart soared to see the smile on his face whenever he was in the water thereafter. Thank you, Lyda, for making good your home so welcoming!
Everything was as promised. Very comfortable and fully furnished with all you need. The hosts were very helpful and responsive!
It's perfect for us and our family. We have been going to Newfound Lake for 30 years now. In the past, we rented condos. Now that we have grandchildren and our family is growing, we needed more room. Because Lyda's place is a stand alone home, you don't have to worry about bothering the neighbors, if the a baby wakes up in the middle of the night. Also, it has a huge yard for baseball games, etc. Although, it looks small in the pictures, it is deceiving. There is a lot of room! Even though it's located in New Hampshire, it can get very hot. The central air conditioning was greatly appreciated!! Lyda also has all of the stations on her tv, which made my husband happy. He didn't have to worry about missing the Red Sox, etc! Thank you, Lyda. We will be back next year!
This property has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The pictures online are appealing, but the actual home is even nicer! This is our third vacation spot in six years at Newfound Lake, and it is now our favorite. Everything about it was terrific.
Great access to one of the nicest beaches on the lake. Comfortable home for a family.
We've been vacationing at Newfound Lake for over 30 years now, this was one of the nicest houses we've stayed at! Very clean, LOTS of room (the kids loved the yard!), and the central AC was really nice during the hot days. The shared community beach was really nice as well, only a 7 minute walk from the house (we timed it :-) ), or you can use the golf cart provided by the owner. Had a great sandy beach, and the covered pavilion was very helpful if we wanted to each lunch while down there. Also, I have to say the owner of this property was absolutely fantastic. Homeaway/VRBO somehow messed up our reservation and cancelled it 6 days beforehand, the owner was extremely helpful and communicative in ensuring us that we still had our rental and trying to figure out what went wrong (she helped get it settled in the end!). Very frustrating for both sides, but she gets 5+ stars for making sure the rental process went smoothly for us!
