Newfound Lake cottage description
Originally known as 'Bungalow Village,' this cabin has been welcoming guests for 70+ years. The complex was converted to condominiums in 2004 and sold individually. Updates in the last 6 years include a brand new bed, refinished floors, a new kitchenette, new roof, and a fresh coat of paint. The cabin has been selectively refinished to maintain the old world charm while accommodating new world amenities. It's a bit rustic but those who have stayed before would not want it any other way.
Come enjoy the breeze off the water from the front porch; take a dip in the lake on a hot summer night; hike, bike, fish, boat. Newfound Lake has it all!
Simply, there is no better place to be in New England.

Long ago (great) memories of cabin "D"
Long ago (great) memories of cabin "D"
I stumbled across this web site and almost fell down. My family rented Cabin D for something like 40 years. I myself spent time in D from 6 mos to 12 years. My mothers family started going to Newfound Lake in 1922! I thought that was when they began renting D but perhaps that was even before Bungalow Village was in business, but I can tell you that they started going to Bungalow Villege almost from day one. My mother went to the lake for over 70 years! My sister still goes to the lake and she has gone for over 70 years. After we stopped going to "D" we went elsewhere on the lake, as I said my sister and her family still do. I have not been in many, many years. What I do remember about Bungalow Village and Cabil D is that the Nelson family owned it and I think they were teachers in Massachusetts the rest of the year. The cottage itself had 2 murphy bed which folded out of the walls. The table folded out of the front wall and you could store canned goods where the table had been when against the wall. We had an ice chest on the porch and got ice from an ice house just down the street...ice which had been cut from the lake during the winter. There was no hot water and the bathroom was just a commode. There was a pot belly stove for warmth when things got chilly. The "Key" building was a community hal where movies would be shown weekly. There was a little green cottage right on the beach. It was owned by the Roby family and, as I said, was right on the beach. I remember when there was a camp on the island. As a matter of fact I remember there were a number of camps which I understand are long gone...Tomahawk, Red Fox etc, etc. Rand's General Store was just up the beach. There was a movie theater down town and a restaurant which, if memory serves, was the Grace Louise. Maybelle's bakery was a must go to for goodies. From talking to family members I understand that the beach in front of the cottages is now public but was private when my family went there. So amny happy memories so long ago. Good luck to anyone who rents "D" it really has quite a history.

I used to come to Newfound Lake to these cottages when they were refered to as Bunglow Village when I was a couple months old till the time I was 17. I have some of my best memories from up on that hill looking down at the lake . I am now 29 and I am excited to start planning a trip back there to Cabin D. Now this time I can make new memories as an adult !!!

my family and friends stayed at Bungalo Village for 10 straight summers! We have the best memories from the rec hall, the campfires and Paul, the rec hall dances, Doug & Madeline, catching rides on Doug's golf cart, the beach, cookouts, and MANY MANY MORE!!! I cannot say enough good things about these lake front cottages. Simply the best times of our lives!!

I stayed in one of these cottages in 1974....it was the most peaceful, serene place I have ever been. Someday, I hope to go back.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I've been coming to the lake since the summer of 1981...2012 is my 32nd summer! I spent my teenage and college years working the shelves and cooking at Shackett's, as well as waiting a table or two down at The Homestead. I've been a weekend warrior ever since and never once have I found the 2 hour drive from Boston not to be worth it.
Why the Owner Chose Newfound Lake:
My Grandparents Richard 'Nibby' and Carmel Hart from Quincy, MA, stayed here with my Dad in the 1940s and 1950s and settled on 'Cabin D' as their favorite for a number of years. My Dad cherished the memories he made at the lake and purchased a cottage of his own on Arrowhead Point in 1971. Sometimes when we would drive by Bungalo Village he would look up fondly and say, 'That's Cabin D: Where It All Started.' When Bungalo Village was converted to condos in 2004 there was simply no choice - we had to buy it!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Time stands still on the front porch of this cabin. Its a throwback to a simpler time and my hope is it will be preserved for many more years for families to enjoy and create memories.
