A great location is the only plus about this place, they lie about it being a heated pool on the website, no way is it a heated pool, thought I was doing the ALS ice bucket challenge after jumping in, rooms are run down, apparently the owner who walks by all day and doesn't bother to say hi or acknowledge...

Stayed at the Half Moon for 4 nights of 2015 motorcycle week. Old outdated room, sad bathroom and wood paneling. Staff was nice, room was "refreshed" daily but it was not worth the jacked up rate for the event. The location was perfect and the deck was great for hanging out. I would stay again based on location only.

We loved our stay here. Everything went so smoothly. These cottages have the best location, right in the middle of everything. The cottage was very neat and clean and well maintained. I loved that we can open the door and our view was the lake.during the day. The cleaning staff is out n about and are very friendly and helpful.... More

This was a wonderful little cottage to stay in for a weekend trip. We will certainly stay here again. The staff was very accomadating and the location was perfect for what our trip needed. We were withing a few hundred feet of the weirs beach boardwalk, and a very short walking distance to the Mt Washington Dinner Cruise we were... More

I stayed in a cottage over memorial day weekend. The cottage was spotless, and smelled fresh. The manager was friendly and helpful. The view of the lake from my front window was spectacular. It was so nice I will be returning later in the season.

I have stayed here a few times due to the convenient location to the beach and pier area. I am highly disappointed in a place that could have such potential. I stayed in the small cabin and every time it gets worse. My front door had a two inch gap between the door and the door frame that I had... More

This guest stayed in a Small Cottage, which have UNscreened OUTSIDE porches. We clean away spider webs from the outside porches on a regular basis. Cottage doors fit snugly without gaps, and have new locks. Our showers are a standard size shower stall. Our manager had already retired for the evening, and was dressed in her pajamas when this customer... More

location is a huge plus for this place. Stone's throw to the BLVD on Weir's beach and all it has to offer. Let us park our boat on property which was very convenient. Cute room, small but had mini fridge and microwave, plenty of room for our one night stay. Set due east so I was able to capture a... More

I travel a lot for business so it is a treat to go for pleasure, except this wasn't a pleasure. I called ahead because my flight from Illinois was going to be getting in late and when I booked I was told "no problem we will leave your keys at the door". When I got to the Half Moon it... More

We did not have any guest from Illinois or any late check-ins this season. Our property is well lit at night and every unit number is clearly marked. For late arrivals we leave a property map with the unit number clearly circled. There can be no doubt which is the right room. We would never nail a window shut. Our... More

We planned a girls weekend trip for Mother's Day weekend. The cottages were so cute. We loved sitting on our porch and looking at the amazing view of the lake. We were within walking distance of several restaurants and Mt. Washington boat rides. Management and house keeping checked on us several times to be sure we had everything we needed.... More
