Came here with my girlfriend for New Years weekend. The owners were so friendly and caring about our needs. They had a community fire at night which was nice to see and try and get the guests together. The room was perfect for two cozy and warm for the winter months! We will definitely be back!

I would describe it as comfortable, cozy, quiet and meticulously clean, in a uniquely peaceful and picturesque environment. The new owners are welcoming, thoughtful, funny and nice. I had a wonderful stay and will definitely be going back. I am already looking forward to my next visit. :)

The owners are very nice and helpful. The cabin that we had(Welch and Dickey) was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the shower was excellent(plenty of hot water). Had everything you could possibly need in a cabin. I will highly recommend it to every body.

We stayed in Kinsman #13 room over the Thanksgiving weekend. Close to ATV's, Snowmobiles and horseback riding. Doing things in Woodstock, Lincoln, Campton? This keeps you central to all. The owners are super nice.

My girlfriend and I had a terrific stay for three nights while surveying a land purchase. Two nights in the standalone cottage 'Welch and Dickey' and a night in the 'motel', or shared cottage as I'd call it. Very clean, charming and a wonderful staff at reception. They have just purchased the Gilcrest and I think they'll develop it and...

The cottage was well equipped with a lovely fire and a gas heater. It was excellently kept and very clean. My only tip would...

Gary and Julie are great hosts. The cottages are a great place to stay and are at a convenient location between Franconia Notch and the lakes region. This was a very good place to stay at a reasonable price.

My husband and I and 2 other couples rented 3 cottages for 3 nights/4days. We had so much fun in this area. The cottages were exactly what we were looking for. CLEAN, comfy, pleasant décor, with great bathroom, fridge, microwave & coffeemaker. In the winter the fireplace would be a great attraction. Picnic table right outside our door, swimming pool...

“Room was perfect for the days we were there. I especially appreciated the boot matt & tray and the fireplace. Tips would be 1) only duraflame logs in the fireplaces, no real wood. 2) no maid service during your stay of less than 5 days, but you can ask the owners for anything you need. 3) Closet with hangers provided, but no dresser to put items away. If you are the type that likes to unpack everything and put it away, please keep this in mind. Highly recommend these cottages. Free wifi!”
