We recently spent two nights with our little girl at Cottage Place. Our cottage was lovely, really cute and traditional but with all the things that was needed. Loved sitting out on the porch on an evening and there are some nice things to do nearby. Our little girl loved the swing slide set and the proximity and access to... More

In the cottage tradition, clean and slightly eclectic, that's the cottage part. I stay there for a week each summer while I teach a boatbuilding class in the area. I always look forward to the stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the kitchen has everything I need to get an early breakfast on the table. I've not stayed... More

To make a long story short, my wife and I were at the lakes region to spend an anniversary get away at our family's cabin near Cottage Place. A miscommunication meant the cabin was occupied by a family member! We left our cabin in search of a place to stay. Our first, and last stop was at Cotten Place. My... More

Just got back from Cottage Place after spending beautiful, relaxing week. If you are looking for five star hotels and five star restaurants, this is not a place, but if you are looking for quiet charm, cozy atmosphere, beautiful lake beach, nice hiking and biking trails and nice little NH towns of Ashland and Holderness (again, no five stars, but...

We had the most wonderful week...hated to leave. Loved opening our cottage door and walking out to a beautiful beach. We swam every day of our stay; our son loved the floating raft. The view is absolutely beautiful, and it's so peaceful, sitting on the porch, watching the loons "fish" for their lunch. We'll definitely return next summer, and I'm... More

On the plus side: --They take dogs --Met some nice guests --Quiet (but see below) --Super clean bedding On the not so plus side: --Motorcycle noise on the weekend is laughably bad --Unlike most reviewers, I did not get much help or interaction from the front desk. Mostly served by a pretty, nice girl who just looked at me blankly... More

Thank you for taking the time to create a review. I am sorry we were not your "cup of tea" but do realize that with the age of our property and the size of our very small staff, we cannot be everything to everyone. We accept that for sure. We strive to be the best we can be. The motor... More

We are from the UK and stayed in an upstairs apartment with our six year old son in August 2013 for two nights whilst travelling around New Hampshire. The view was wonderful, the room was clean and comfortable and there were basic kitchen facilities should you want to use them. It was a friendly place to stay with little noise... More

What a find this place was! When they say pet friendly, they mean pet friendly. Not only did we feel welcomed and comfortable, but our 2 weimaraners were as accepted as we were. Absolutely best experience taking our dogs to a beach. It is not often you find a place that allows pets on the beach. The cottages are adorable... More

Fourteen of us were attending a local wedding in the area and we didn't want to stay in a boring hotel. We booked some cottages and were able to make a fun weekend of it, yet still have some privacy. We were able to barbecue, and have a bonfire and hang out at the beach. The cottages don't have air... More
