Average Vacation Rental Rating (Based on 19 reviews)
"The place was great. However, having to be out by 10am was terrible."
"The Droukas house is in a perfect location of the lake. It definitely could use updating as others have said and the spiral staircases are very narrow, but it is spacious, clean and has everything you need. It was great that we could bring our yellow lab, who loved the lake:) I would definitively rent it again."
"Great time, great location, perfect for family, lake front with dock, log cabin great shape can’t wait to get back next year. Vacation rentals made it easy for us to get in"
"Great location and great house especially porch. Does need fixing up a bit but had a very good time.
"The house and location were beautiful and perfect. Swimming and boating were amazing and there were so many restaurants and other things to do throughout the week."
"This cabin was rustically majestic! Its beautiful and spacious. Its location is stellar. It’s a wonderful place to relax and observe the Loons. The living room fireplace is an amazing center piece like a work of art in a vast great room. Tones of beds for sleeping arrangements. A wonderful second home. Thank you for allowing us to stay."
"We spent a wonderful week at the Drukas cabin in mid August. The cabin was very clean and sanitized by the cleaning crew who were there for our early arrival. This cabin is wonderful because it has a nice new dock on the lake and is just far enough but not too far away from area attractions, I would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for an outdoor experience away from people. "
"The home was very large and well appointed. There was plenty of room for everyone. The views were spectacular and the cove was very quiet.The dock had plenty of room to accommodate our boat. The only downside was the home got very hot and uncomfortable. The air conditioner in the Master bedroom was wonderful, however an upgrade of central air or more ac units in the home is definitely needed.
"dream home and dream location! The house is set up perfectly for a larger gathering of people and the section of the lake is peaceful and beautiful, we absolutely loved our stay. Overall it's a 5-star experience, however, not having any sponges, paper towels, or toilet paper was a drag. I brought a kayak but it would have been nice for the rest of us to have been able to use their canoe. That being said, STUNNING PLACE"
"This was a very enjoyable stay at a truky secluded location on the big lake. Most of the day time was spent fishing and kayaking and the location for that was perfect. Plenty of serene conditions for paddling undisturbed by large power boats. We enjoyed observing Loons right off the dock, an industrious beaver lodge 100 yds away and great blue heron dining daily in the marsh/Lily pads. At night there was plenty to do with Funspot, Minigolf, go carts and the Weirs within 15-20 min drive. For those not up for fishing, there were wineries, cideries and plenty of other options to investigate. Some of us took a pleasant 3hr cruise on Winnipesaukee on the Mt Washington. Overall everyone enjoyed their stay very much!"
"The house is in a perfect spot on the lake - very quiet and you can jump right in off the dock. There is a lot of Loon and Blue Heron activity. It had almost all amenities that you could ask for, but there is only 1 AC and the house gets very hot, especially the upstairs bedrooms and bedroom over garage. More fans or AC would be a good addition. The walk down to the dock is tough for anyone older and a handrail is needed. A ladder to get back onto the dock would be great too! The gas went out on our second day there, so we had cold showers and could not cook dinner, but I called and someone was out to fill it within a few hours. The basement bed is VERY uncomfortable and needs replacement. Overall, the house is really nice, in a great spot, and I can't wait to go back next year!"
"This place is a gem! If you are looking to watch loons, snapping turtles, herons, beavers and other wildlife right from your front porch, to kayak or canoe or swim right from your own dock in what has to be the quietest part of the lake, this is your place. We’ve come here 2 years in a row, and have enjoyed it in rain, sweltering heat, and crisp cool air. The living/dining areas and porch are absolutely wonderful, although the circular staircase and tiny kitchen are quirky, to say the least. The basement bedrooms were cool on hot days, but had little else to recommend them, and the bedroom over the garage was nobody’s favorite place. But the upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs master were great. We really didn’t need to leave for anything except hiking or jogging all week long."
"Great place for a family vaca. We had 7 adults and two kids around the age of 2. The stairs weren't the easiest/safest especially for kids. As another review mentioned, the house could use a few updates. But it suited all of our needs and we loved sitting on the back deck every day just enjoying the view! The management company was really helpful. Very happy with our stay - thank you!"
"We had a fabulous time at this spot, rain or shine! We had 8-10 people at all times, and there were gorgeous views, amazing encounters with wildlife (including daily sightings and sounds from what felt like our own loon family from the adjacent loon nesting site), and great opportunities for swimming and paddling. The kitchen was funky and tiny, and the downstairs apartment was gloomy, but, overall, this could not have been a more perfect spot."
"It was a nice place however to many personal items left through out the home and it could use some updates. "
"Absolutely great house in a lovely quiet cove on Winnipesaukee. Tons of space for large families to have a wonderful time. We ate out on the wraparound porch every night and the dogs were waterlogged 24/7. The photos are accurate, there is no sandy beach for swimming, but you can wade the entire length of the property and the water is deep enough to jump off the dock. No problem bringing in the boat and we had plenty of room for a Sailfish and two kayaks. Yes, those are the steps from the house to the water, think of it as your own guilt free vacation with a StairMaster built in! Couldn't ask for a better setting, it was just beautiful!"
"Plenty of room for everyone. A great place to get away from it all and relax. "
"Wonderful, delightful, charming and in a great location. We all had a great time!"
"We had a great week of swimming and relaxing. It was exactly what we wanted! This house was perfect for our family: plenty of room, relaxed interior, great porch. Quiet area, great neighborhood. Good road for morning run, kitchen and laundry all worked great. Not fancy but we would not want that at the lake anyway. If you need pristine accommodations then it's not for you, but if you are an outdoorsy type then it's perfect. Spiral staircases so be sure you are up to manage little kids on stairs. Basement has separate kitchen and small living area that has double French doors opening toward lake. Extra bedrooms down there are very basic - perfect for teenagers. Upstairs guest bedrooms share a bath and there is an office in the loft space. Master bedroom is on main floor and has its own bathroom. A country setting will have a stray spiderweb or evidence of a mouse from time to time but this is to be expected. The house was clean as a whistle when we arrived, no complaints!"
