About Kate and Aaron Dube

This is our home away from home. We started boating on Lake Winnipesaukee and fell in love with it. We have 4 kids - the youngest born in Feb 2015 so extravagant vacations may not be in the near future for us so we invested in our family time with this condo. Away from the worries of home and time for us to be together and enjoy each other's company (while they are still young enough to want to be around us). We are also skiers so the close proximity to Gunstock is great!

Why Kate and Aaron Dube chose Gilford

We love Samoset because it is like being on a resort with so many different options to do with your time. The other owners and renters are very friendly and respectful. We love the location of the unit because of the semi-private backyard as it backs up to the tennis courts so there is not a lot of traffic to bother you on the deck and you can also keep an eye on the kids play tennis through the trees if you still need to do things in the unit.

What makes this condo unique

Not many places on the lake which have 2 in-ground pools, tennis courts, beach access and more without paying an extravagant amount.

Comfortable stay - great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Gilford. The condo was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The layout was perfect for our family. We were able to connect to the WiFi which was a big plus as other renters staying at the complex were not as lucky with their units. The walk down to the beach takes about five minutes and is a little steep. However, once there you are a very short distance to the pool, clubhouse with clean bathrooms and a very pretty picnic area.The lake is perfect for swimming - the water is very clean and the beach has plenty of chairs. The pool is also a nice option. In fact, it's even bigger and nicer than the photos suggest. Tennis courts are right next to the property and a volleyball court is a very short walk away. The condo was very quiet day and night. The air conditioning was a big plus as it was quite hot during our stay. Grocery stores, restaurants and ice cream are all less than a ten minute drive. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • 1 of 5

even though they list date as available - don't count on it. we tried to rent and they waited full 24 hours before telling us the property wasn't available - even though is was listed as available on the VRBO. Now we've missed out on other properties...

Peaseful but a lot of stairs and dog hair and smell strong. Needs deep cleaning

  • 3 of 5

Dog hair and smell was strong, thankfully no one in our group was allergic. The whole condo is like a stair exercise room, which was tough on our 70 yr guest. A deep cleaning is needed, fan has at least a years growth of dust and the pile of dead bugs in the window above door is also a years accumilaton at least. Samoset is a big complex but given its size we were surprised it was not loud and out of control, people in the complex were very friendly.

Welcoming, clean and well appointed accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother, two small children and I spent a week at this condo and loved everything about condo living at the lake! The owners were extremely responsive to questions and everything was handled in an efficient and professional manner. The home was perfectly appointed for our stay including linens, towels and all necessary kitchen needs. Our four year old loved the pool and we spent every afternoon there. The other people at Samoset were extremely nice and the neighbors were welcoming. We had an amazing vacation!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this condo in early March 2016. It was a great size for my family of 5. The location was great. Gunstock was less than 10 minutes away, which made daily skiing very easy. The condo was nicely equipped with the essentials for cooking most meals. The layout was very different because it is a multi-level unit, but we enjoyed the different layout. There was plenty of space for us to spread out. I imagine in the summer this condo is a beautiful one to visit because it is just a short walk to the lake. The owner communication was wonderful. We couldn't figure out how to turn the satellite on and the owner called me almost immediately to walk me through it. Unfortunately the clothes dryer broke during our stay. The owner was great about getting back to me quickly and also sent the property manager to inspect the dryer shortly after I contacted him. Unfortunately, they were not able to get it repaired during our stay because it was a weekend, but that was clearly out of there hands. We would recommend staying in this condo and if we find ourselves back at Gun Stock for another ski race, we will definitely rent it again!
