We really enjoyed the clean, quiet and cozy room, and the great views! A lot to do, horse shoe pits, volleyball, fishing, canoeing and more! We stayed in a Newley remodeled cabin.. Great work! The hospitality was wonderful! We will definitely be back!

On Rainbow lake, have stayed on this property many times in years past with different owners. The remodeling- renovation upgraded the units to a more comfortable place to stay. This is the white mountains, these are small affordable cabins in a safe and friendly environment. The frisbee area and fire pits are a nice addition by this owner. Hopeful to...

My boyfriend and I were referred by friends who travel quite frequently and highly recommended Rainbow’s End. We were looking for a place to spend for a weekend getaway for just the two of us, something simple, affordable and different and this was the perfect place! We stayed in the Poplar room, each room has distinct features that other rooms...

Awesome place. Nice clean and quiet cabin. Bed was super comfy. We stayed 9 nights. The owner was super nice, very helpful. He even tried to help my hubby find a good fishing spot at different lakes around the area. Fishing was not that great. But, we still enjoyed our stay. Will stay again.

Really enjoyed the view from our room and front porch. Owner was very good with his clients. Would have had a 5 star if we had better lighting in the room. Could not read after dark in living area or bedroom. Was also very disappointed in the fishing. Lake is full of grass and moss. No way to really fish...

I stayed here with my boo for two nights during the first week of June and had a wonderful time. I definitely recommend the Maple Room which has great views of the lake, a complete kitchen and a comfortable queen sized bed. We took one of the fishing boats out on the lake at sunset and--despite being novice fisher people--caught...

Just spent three days at Rainbows End Resort. We were very pleased with our stay. Firstly we arrived late and our key, directions, and a welcome message were waiting for us at the office. We had a one room cabin with a living room and kitchenette. Plenty of room as we pretty much just slept there and spent most of...

We recently stayed at the Rainbows End Resort this past October and were completely delighted. There were four adults and my 2 year old daughter and we were all very comfortably accommodated in the "Pine" room.
