    Peaceful and Clean

    We had a wonderful week at Loon Lake. The long dirt road in can be off putting at first, but once you arrive, you have found a hidden gem. The cottage is lovely. Updated and clean, with all the basics you need. When we weren't out on the lake taking in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, we spent time in the screened porch or on the patio, both overlooking the lake. There are plenty of day trip destinations close by, like Concord, Portsmouth and Kittery. The Tuckaway Tavern is very close by and a must visit for delicious food and excellent service. Troy and Kris were gracious hosts and made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend this property!!

    Extraordinary Vacation

    We are sure going to miss the beautiful sunrises with coffee. The cottage was updated and comfortable stocked with everything we needed. The beach towels was a definite plus with littles. The area is quiet, and gorgeous. Our family had the best time! The kids loved the sounds of the loones especially in the morning.we are going to miss our breakfasts overlooking the lake. The location is prime to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and beaches. The owners were friendly, and so very courteous. We can’t wait to book for next year!

    Loon Lake Cottage - Everything we hoped for and more.

    We are two retired couples that live local and that were looking for a nice, quiet place to rent for a week on a lake. Loon Lake Cottage looked to be exactly what we were envisioning. And as it turns out, that assessment couldn't have been more correct. Although there are many things to do in the area, we spent our time at the cottage relaxing on the patio, down by the water or in the enclosed porch, playing cards, reading and building puzzles. Our grandchildren visited us for a day, and they had a great time playing in the water and on the playground at the Pawtuckaway State Park beach (a short drive from the cottage), and doing some fishing from the dock in front of the cottage. We took advantage of the canoe (included with the rental) to paddle around our area of the lake, and to pick blueberries from the many bushes that lined the islands and overhung the water. And we also did some hiking to the boulder field, located within the state park. Pretty amazing array of huge boulders dropped by the glaciers during the last ice age. We saw great blue herons, a bald eagle, song sparrows and of course, loons, which were amazing to listen to in the evening and early morning. The sunrises were varied each morning, from brilliant as the sun come up over the horizon, to quiet and subdued, with the lake as still as glass with mist rising up from the surface. While this was perfect for us local folks, there is also much to do in the area for both kids and adults, with none of it more than maybe 45 minutes away. Food shopping is maybe 10 - 15 minutes away, making it very convenient to stock up for the week. The cottage itself is very clean, and includes all the expected linens, towels, kitchen items, games (played our first game of Monopoly in more years than I can remember), a gas grill, and a fire pit. The cottage also has a dedicated WiFi router with a strong, fast internet connection, and a TV. Cell phone service was also good (we have Verizon). And finally, we cannot say enough about the owners, who are very friendly, local to the cottage, easily reachable, and very responsive to any requests that we had. The cottage is perfect both for those just looking for a little peace and quiet as we were, or to use it as a focal point for all the many things to do in the seacoast area of New Hampshire and in southeast coastal Maine, including the best seafood you'll ever taste. Definitely consider Loon Lake Cottage as a your next vacation spot.

    A hidden gem of a vacation cabin.

    Best vacation ever. Excellent cabin and really nice family running it. The cabin fit our needs perfectly. It is right on the lake with a private dock and sitting patio on the water. It has an enclosed patio where we could watch the loons and many boats. My 7 year old grandson spent everyday fishing off the dock and caught 2 largemouth bass and numerous large hornpout. Every day we went swimming off the dock in clean warm water. The owners could not do enough for us and were really nice people. We made numerous day trips to the beach and water/amusement parks. This truly is a hidden gem and anyone would be happy to stay there. We loved it. Plan to return next year.
