We are spending our last evening at Oliver Lodge, and are sorry to be leaving tomorrow. I have no idea why the other two posters did not enjoy their stay, but we loved our week here.
This is informal living, but as comfy as could be, and Lydia, the assistant director, could not have been more helpful. She responded immediately to every request, and even offered to lend her own sunglasses after my daughter lost hers.
I was here with my husband and daughter and daughter-in-law with their families, including four children from 9 months to 7 1/2 years old. We rented the North Wing, which was perfect for our group. Each family had a different section of the house. It is located right on the lake, and we were lucky enough to hear loons on the lake one morning.
Unfortunately, we had terrible weather for the first part of the week but once it cleared up, we spent most of the day on glorious Lake Winnipesaukee. There is a terrific slow-sloping sandy beach, perfect for the kids. We all swam many times out to the little island with the A frame and the buoy. There are two kayaks to use, as well as a rowboat and kickboards.
We made most of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen, and went out to eat once at a fabulous restaurant, Kevin's Cafe, in Center Harbor. Delicious, fresh seafood. We all recommend it highly.
We enjoyed walking through the shops in Meredith, and riding the Go Karts and visiting Weir's Beach. I would return in an instant!
