True New Hampshire Experience at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing... Our hostess couldn't be any sweeter. The rental was perfect in every way. Clean and oh so well stocked... All that was needed was our clothes and very personal items. The lake is spectacular. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone that is looking to experience true New Hampshire beauty and hospitality.

Great Family Spot

  • 5 of 5

I rented this for a getaway for 6 of us including my dad, sister, nieces, and the dog. AiKen Manor is a fabulous place with lots of history. Bronwyn met us when arrived to show us around. We never went anywhere besides out to dinner and to the fantastic candy shop in town for my nieces. We relaxed on the lake every day. We used the kayaks, paddle boat, horse shoes, and the fire pit to roast marshmallows. My nieces fed the horses daily and the show dogs she has as well. The place was immaculate and very well taken care of. We had plenty of towels, toiletries, and linen for all of us. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back for another getaway. Thank you so much Bronwyn.

Great vacation spot, hidden in plain view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing week we spent at Aiken Manor. We loved the quite county setting, the private beach and the central location. While the house is already on a lake, it is also near to many other lakes, is easily accessible to the highway, and for us Aiken Manor made a great landing point for our multiple day trips. The place was clean, offered a Keurig coffee maker and all other kitchen needs, plenty of extra towels, various toiletries, and even a nice welcoming fruit basket. Thank you Bronwyn, for making our stay so comfortable!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was very impressed working with the owner and property manager - they made us feel most welcome. The guest suite was very clean. We had lots of fun on the lake using the onsite kayak and paddle boat.

A wonderful place to relax a short walk from Webster Lake where you can enjoy water activities.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment on 2nd floor with all the amenities you could wish for. Close enough to town to be convenient but far enough away to be very relaxing. Very clean and well maintained.

Bronwyn has provided everything, even treats for the horses and show dogs in a nearby kennel on the property.

There's a small beach front area across the road on Webster Lake. A paddle boat, a kayak, barbecue, screened gazebo, volleyball net, croquet set, etc. are all available for your use. Flotation vests in a small shed next to the boats. A small raft about 50 feet from the end of the short dock.

The Northern Rail Trail runs right behind the property. Great for a little exercise (hike or bike).

Lots of history in the area and for the property as well.

If it were a restaurant, it would qualify as a "Hidden Gem".
