Northwood house description

It’s Time to Plan your NH LAKEFRONT Vacation!

Your vacation destination includes your choice of 5 bedroom home to easily accommodate you and your friends! The 125 acre Harvey Lake boasts some of the best fishing and water activities around. Of course, the home includes a fully equipped kitchen, linens and baths. On the property you’ll have access to a sandy beach and a boat launch is just a short drive around the corner. The 5 bedroom home offers what you would expect in a 200 year old historic building, including the rustic feel of an antique home with its’ hand hewn beams.

You will find plenty to do including visiting arts and crafts shops and New Hampshire’s famous “Antique Alley”. This home is located in the center of what ENDLESS VACATION MAGAZINE recently featured on their cover as one of the 5 GREAT DRIVES IN AMERICA. (The others are located in Washington, Hawaii, New Mexico and Missouri). Northwood is central to many of the New Hampshire activities you want including the White Mountains, Lakes Region and the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll want to finish your day at some of the greatest restaurants around, including those in either Portsmouth or Concord!

Whether it’s taking a hike, visiting the factory outlets of Tilton or just watching the water from your front porch, you’ll have a great time in and around the Northwood area.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We purchased this property a couple of years ago with the intent of using it as both a retreat for ourselves and something that we could share with others. We both work full-time jobs (Lee is a pharmacist, Nancy works for the postal service), and spend our free time in Northwood. This lake property allows us a release from the day to day activities. We find that as soon as we arrive, our excitement builds about the next boat ride, swim in the beach, or cookout. We've enjoyed many gathering with old friends and new and find Harvey Lake to be the best place anywhere to make our new memories!

                          Why the Owner Chose Northwood:
                          We chose Harvey Lake because of it's central location to the Mountains, Lakes Region, Portsmouth and Concord. You can't find a nicer location if you want to take advantage of all that New Hampshire has to offer. Our home is located in the center of 'Antique Alley'. New Hampshire is rich with history, so having a chance to take a look at many of the items used at any of the 100+ shops is a lot of fun to us. Perhaps the most important reason we chose this property was the size of the lake. Harvey Lake is just 125 acres. This is large enough to use a powerboat, yet small enough to feel comfortable using a kayak or canoe. The larger lakes often have large amounts of boating traffic. In the years we've had the property, it's rare to see more than 3 boats on the lake at a time. It's absolutely fantastic!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Harvey Lake is located nearly center between the ocean (Portsmouth), the State Capital (Concord) and the largest lake in the state (Winnipesaukee). On the property you can have a campfire, go boating, fishing, swimming or just relaxing in the sun! Nearby you'll find great hiking and areas for the family picnic lunch. Later in the day, take a short trip to buy lobsters or visit many of the fine resteraunts.
