This is the first visit our family has made to the lakes region of New Hampshire, and we were not disappointed. My husband and I traveled with two older teens, and the purpose was to relax and enjoy family time before my son graduates high school.
We loved the cabin. It provided just the right amount of space for the four of us. Not so cramped we were on top of each other, but not so big that we never saw the kids. It was clean, and furnished with most all of the essentials we needed for the weekend. The cabin faces the lake, and the windows provided a great view of the lake and nice breezes. We went mid September so it was a bit cool in the evening, but the heater made it very comfortable.
Our entire family made great use of the water toys provided. We had a choice of kayaks or canoes, and opted for the canoes. Crescent Lake was beautiful and clear, and offered some wildlife visits from a couple of loons. There is also a small channel that smaller boats can use to get over to the larger Lake Wentworth. In the evening we enjoyed the fire pit provided and roasted marshmallows.
The cabin also backs up to the Cotton Valley trail, and it provided a great setting for my morning walks. It is mostly flat and has nice scenery of the lake and wooded areas. Next time I would bring bikes so we could explore more of the trail.
The town of Wolfeboro was quaint and charming. Since it was after season there wasn't a whole lot going on, but it was busy enough to enjoy without the large crowds of summer. Most of the restaurants and stores were still open.
All in all this property provided a perfect weekend get away for the family. Both adults and teens enjoyed themselves.
My fiancee and I had a wonderful time at this cottage this past weekend. It was extremely charming and clean. Karen and her husband are so friendly and welcome! They are a wealth of knowledge about the area and the many things to do and see. Thank you both, we had a blast!!
