Beautiful Well Kept Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short weekend getaway. The apartment was very well kept and perfectly stocked with coffee, seasoning, pots, pans and everything else you would need to make yourself right at home. The set up is more like a studio so the bed is right next to the living room but that was a plus for me because come bedtime we all still got to be together instead of in separate rooms. The apartment is very comfortable and Nancy and Dan do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your stay. We took the canoe out on the water and over to the nearby beach and it was absolutely perfect. If you are looking for a retreat from the busy city and enjoy fun by the water this is a great place for you.

A Perfect Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

A great opportunity for me to take advantage of some brief time off from work ended up being the perfect weekend get-away at the Lakeside Wooded Retreat! This was my first time staying in this type of accommodation and it won’t be my last! It is so much better to have a “home away from home” instead of a cramped hotel/motel room. This particular location also offered me a bit of a nostalgic weekend as it was located in the same neighborhood where my family had a summer cottage and my grandparents had also lived many, many years ago and I got to re-live some wonderful memories.

The apartment suite was every bit as lovely as it looked in the pictures on the site and offered all options as advertised! Facing the lake, the views are terrific and atmosphere so peaceful. For me, there is nothing more relaxing that just spending time near water – don’t even have to be in it or on it!

Nancy and Dan (and Beckett, their dog) were very welcoming. I too was surprised by a bottle of wine left to welcome me (so thoughtful). Nancy even took the time to text me with some breakfast locations after I had asked (not being much of a cook, I always like to try to visit where the locals eat when I travel). Ironically, with the available kitchen space, I ended up cooking anyway. But options are always great to have.

I highly recommend this location to anyone – I look forward to returning to it myself someday. Thank you again Nancy & Dan.

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and there were many activities for the whole family. The beach was also a short drive away and there is a kayak and canoe available to explore the lake. The lake has a large variety of fish and a private dock to fish from. I would recommend renting this property to anyone visiting the area.

Tranquility on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I would rename the lakeside wooded retreat Tranquility! It was very peaceful, serene and beautiful! We had a wonderful welcome from Nancy & Dan complete with a bottle of wine to celebrate our 30th anniversary! We enjoyed a kayak trip across the lake and a great sunset tour courtesy of Nancy & Dan. Enjoyed meeting their great dog Beckett also! It was only a short ride over to Portsmouth. We would definately stay again and would plan our trip upon the availability of their cottage which was adorable with a wonderful porch overlooking the lake!
