first off: This place is not fancy and I see some reviews that are trashing the place, it appears to me that they may have caviar taste on a tuna fish budget. if you are looking for a place with all the bells and whistles then you should plan to spend well over 100$ a night. The cabins are older... More

We just spent a night here last weekend. For the most part it was a pleasant stay. The staff was nice, the grounds are great, the lake and views can't be beat. We were looking for a camping type experience without having to lug tents and sleeping bags, and this fit the bill. The cabins are very basic & rustic.... More

Although we do not seem to receive many smoking complaints, you are absolutely right and we are going to revisit this policy for the 2014 season. Thank-you for your positive comments and should you decide to visit again, smoking will most likely only be permitted on the porches. More

The floor was dirty, only a sheet on the bed with flat pillows, and the cabin smelled! My husband told them we were not satisfied and all she said was ok. Never asked why or offered another cabin. Just kept the 87.00. That is terrible!

This is our second year getting together for a girl's weekend at Ancourage at the lake. We had such a blast last year that others wanted to join us this year. We stayed at the farmhouse which was big enough for all nine of us to have a bed, eat together in the kitchen and sit together in the livingroom.... More

Thank-you Donna. The Anchorage at the Lake is a great place for “girls getaways” and “mancations”, not to mention group gatherings, family reunions and weddings. The three large homes are arranged to accommodate large parties ranging from 14-22 people which makes for a fantastic and affordable spot right on Lake Winnisquam where you can barbeque, sit on screened in porches...

We are one of six families that have vacationed here together for the past two summers. We searched for a pet friendly place that had a nice location, clean beach, open space and activities for 17 kids to enjoy, decent sized cabins, and helpful staff. We found it at Anchorage at the Lake. Swimming, fishing, kayaking, volleyball, horseshoes, ping pong,... More

A large group of us booked several cabins here last weekend and it was a big mistake! The cabins are very old and outdated. The appliances and fixtures were disgusting. The bed sheets were dirty with cob webs when turned down. And the overall smell in each cabin was just rank! All eight of us were extremely disappointed :( The... More

These types of reviews are very hard to respond to and it is unfortunate that you were not informed that we are cabin style camping. It is very important to us that guests know the type of basic, cabin style camping that we offer here at The Anchorage at the Lake. The cabins were built in the 50’s and we... More

We stayed for 1 night in a tiny lakeside cabin. It was perfect, even though we didn't have a tv. We had a kitchenette and a fire pit. It really was lakeside. This was the best value right on the lake. It's definitely a hidden gem. The cabins are a little rustic but bigger and modern ones were available. We... More

Rustic (very simple) cabins, a bit rundown, but fine for the purpose intended. I suppose, had it rained the whole week, we would have noticed. But the sun was shining all week, so we were out at the beach, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, enjoying the evening bonfires... The staff were excellent, lots of good tips, great service and generally nice folks.... More
