We stayed here for the week of our 19th anniversary. What a beautiful, quiet spot. Our cottage was absolutely adorable. We brought our own grill not knowing they actually have grills there for use and the cottage was spotless with the request for extra towels all set for our arrival. Our second day there we booked for a long weekend in October with so so many things to do in just a short 15 minute drive to anywhere in the mountains you want to go. Not far from Vermont, where we also spent a day without feeling like we drove all day, just an hour. The people were very nice and we can’t wait to go back!!! Excellent and lovely

Perfect place to stay. From the warm relaxing pool. To being able to go hang out on the river on the hot days. Updated cottages. Air conditioning. Cable tv. And being in the middle of everything. Close to fun spot for the kids. Lincoln 10 minutes up the street. Whales tale, ice castle,skiing,hiking. Perfect location. And the owner are amazing. They welcomed our family. Touch less check in and check out. Tended to our needs. We highly recommend this place for vacation. Either a quick get away or a long stay.

This was our 2nd time staying here and we loved it. The cottages are clean, cute and comfortable and the entire property is relaxing and quiet. The location right on the Pemi River is a beautiful spot. The owners are very friendly and are always willing to give excellent restaurant and local must do recommendations.

We loved our stay at Gilcrest. The cottage was perfect and very reasonably priced. It is located so close to 93 it's easy to travel to wherever you want to go. There is a pool, and a nice little playground that our 4 year old son was thrilled with. The owners are more than happy to make sure your stay is perfect. We plan on making the trip up a tradition and come up at least once a year.
