Lake views, but not on the lake. Walking distance to downtown

Why Owner Joyce McKenney chose Alton Bay
Peg and I have owned and operated Winn-A-Bay Cabins since 1991. We take care of all the house keeping responsibility's to assure you have a nice clean cabin. We have guests that have been coming each year since we opened. We may not have all the perks of our competitors, but Winn-A-Bay Cabins has it's charm! Please give us an opportunity to show you getting back to the basics, and simple living can be awesome!
What makes this Cabin unique
We advertise "Simple Living" but to be clear, we are not "rustic" our cabins are all recently remodeled, and we have attention to detail. A nice summer night sitting by the campfire with friends, you can't beat it!

Great location overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee yet nestled in a wooded area. Very clean. Owners are very friendly and eager to please. Spacious rooms and great deck! Thanks for the memory!
Thank you Wendy for taking the time to review us. Hope you visit again in the future!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the main cottage.
The place was clean, had everything we needed and was well located for enjoying the lake. Enjoyed several cookouts and sitting by the firepit under a full moon. Joyce and Peg were really nice and very responsive hosts. Would stay here again for sure.
Thank you for taking the time to review us! I hope you visit again real soon!

unhappy stay !
The cottage was nice. But beds were to small, cell phone reception was poor. The WIFI on TV was difficult to maneuver. Parking at cottage became a problem because we had a pick up truck. Very difficult to make turns in such a small area. There was very little view of the lake. And yes we did check the reviews on this cottage. We felt that this was a good choice based on the reviews. We were wrong. We traveled 1600 miles to go to this cottage. We were not happy!!! We were suppose to stay for 1 month and stayed 1 week. A lot of arrangements and planning went into this trip. My wife was very upset. very dissatisfied with this vacation.
Reviews are a funny thing, especially with stars. I would assume you would be evaluating us on what we advertise, and how we stood by what we said we offer. With that being said, I make sure I am transparent in my ad, I write exactly what we are. I was nervous about you renting for a month, so I took the extra step to reach out to you, and discussed exactly what we have. We advertise full size beds, the cabin would not comfortably accommodate a queen size bed. We just added a Roku TV, with on-line access, we have not had any other complaints about the ease of using it, and both Peg and I went through it with you several times, I did say the Wi-Fi is unpredictable, and spotty. Cell phone reception is about your carrier. Yes, the driveway is narrow, and we did have a powerful rain storm before your arrival, that caused ruts. However we have plenty of parking in the front of the property, or on the back road, we offered you closer parking as a convenience. One important item, is that I requested you find a more mutually satisfying accommodation, and I released you from your reservation. I’m not sure I could have been fairer than that. I cannot compete with expensive hotel chains, we are cabins, cabins that we are proud to own, and run. Peg and I work very hard to make everyone’s visit all it can be, and when I realized how unsatisfied you were about issues I couldn’t resolve, I was quick to do all I could to help you. Reflecting on requests you made during your stay, it appeared you are accustomed to daily housekeeping service, and attention to your daily needs. Cabins seldom offer these things, we go the extra step, and set up your cabin nicely with sheets and towels, and make sure you receive it clean and welcoming.
Very cute cabin. Perfect for an unplanned getaway.
Property very clean. Well suited for us as a couple.
I’m not sure why we received three stars, I wish you would’ve told us how we could’ve improved your vacation. We strive for people to have a very pleasant experience. This is the first time we’ve ever received anything below four stars.
Great location, very clean!
We had a wonderful stay. The cottage is very clean and in a great location! Everyone was very helpful and kind. We would definitely stay there again!
Thank you for your review! We hope you visit again real soon! Joyce and Peg
In the military and in town for the Ironman 70.3 Timberman as well as get together with my family from MA. I couldn't have picked a better place to reunite. It had everything we needed and more and super clean. The feel of relaxed camping. The lake just a skip away. The Community as friendly can be. Everything within walking distance. If I visit this lake again, I'm staying at Alton Bay and hope this cabin is open.
