“Nice little getaway in New Hampshire!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Found this nice little compound in Weirs Beach that offers a nice cottage and well kept grounds to relax on. Great location to watch the boats go by in the channel heading onto the big lake, They offer a nice hangout area with fireplace and tiki bar with grills if you need to cook some dinner. The cottages are all pretty standard. We had a 2 bedroom cottage, #12 with bunkbeds in one room and a queen sized bed in the other. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a nice dinner and eat out on our deck. For $99 a night you could not beat the offerings that this property gave you. It was early in the season though so I assume it will be more expensive as you get into peak times over the summer. A couple of suggestions about the cottages.... perhaps adding a light over the sink to see better and maybe a fan for better ventilation. We opened the window so it wasn't a big deal. Also, to increase the living space maybe some re-working of the cottage where you eliminate the screened in porch and extend the cottage out for more space. It seems the outdoor patio is more than ample so why not increase the cottage size. (Just the Mike Holmes in me talking here). Overall this is a nice little find and worth a visit.

The best spot on the lake. You need to see it for yourself. It's called the Island at Channel Cottages, great location on the channel.
All cottages are very clean and a great vacation for a family and friends !

Channel Waterfront Cottages are located in a great spot. Perfect place to visit with children or as a couple. The cottages are located on the channel of Lake Winnapesaukee which is by far the most beautiful lake to visit. The cottages are very clean and the owners are wonderful and make you feel right at home. You will really enjoy your stay there.

What a wonderful place to stay. Our host was the most accommodating, the cabins were spotless and updated with every ammenity. We were within walking distance of Weirs Beach and all the attractions there as well as awesome restaruants and night life. Would definitely recommend Channel Cottages to anyone.

Room Tip: Loved the rooms on the waterfront!!!

I have been going to the beautiful lakes region for over 33 years. We have a family home in Alton Bay on the opposite end of the lake. I have been lucky enough to spend every summer at the lake. We have always cruised by Channel Cottages on the boat and saw the pristine grounds and the awesome party island with people having a good time. We had a lot of family from overseas staying at our home so I got the opportunity to stay and check out the cottages this summer. We loved it... the cottages are in a great location in Weirs Beach and they are super clean inside and out. I absolutely felt right at home here! They have a beautiful beach area and the water is crystal clear. The island is a perfect hang out to relax and watch all the boat activity. The owners Jose, Stacy and their two girls are the nicest people and the make you feel very comfortable... We stayed there several weekends this summer and had an absolute blast! The fact that it was dog friendly was a huge bonus for us. We suggested it to some of our friends and the loved it as well. You will not be dissaponted if you stay here. We will definitely be returning to stay again. - A.F

We were lucky enought to stay at the Channel Waterfront Cottages for nearly two weeks this August. What a delightful place! The owners, staff and owners children are joy! We were on the Lake during a time when my husband filled in at the Lakes Region Hospital. The Hospital put us up in the Marriott. Once checked in, we felt that the Mariott was too sterile and institutional and moved to the Channel Cottages. From the quaint neon sign greeting you to the sweet little cottages everything was perfect! We loved the island and private beach! Fires at night and watching boats putter by. Thank you Jose et all for wonderful time!

Going to Channel Cottages was an excellent adventure. Not only was it everything we had hoped for, but it was also very close to every attraction Weirs Beach has to offer! The rooms were comfortable, people were super friendly, and the cottage was very clean! We look forward to coming back next summer! Jose and his family (the owners), were very warming, friendly, and willing to help us with everything! Thanks again for a great Labor day weekend!
