Barrington house description

ISLAND GETAWAY

Come enjoy the peace and quiet of Calef Island, located on Swain's Lake in Barrington, New Hampshire.

Drive across a birch lined causeway and you will find this spacious Half Acre Lake House just 70 miles north of Boston and 17 miles west of Portsmouth. Walk through the front door and be greeted with sun filled rooms, cathedral ceilings, and spectacular lake views. Private and peaceful this beautiful home includes 3 Bedrooms/2.5 Baths. Master Suite with California King bedding/private half bath is located on the first floor. Downstairs you will find 2 newly renovated bedrooms one with a Queen-size bed, the third with 2 twins. Each floor has a full Bath.

The large and comfortable eat-in kitchen comes complete with new stainless steel appliance, microwave, dishwasher, coffee-maker, and more... all available for your cooking convenience. An open concept best describes the LR/DR area. Designed for full appreciation of Swains Lake the picture windows offer spectacular views, from sunrise to sunset. Take your coffee and binoculars, sit on the private upper deck and watch for wildlife along the opposite shores where you will find acres of Conservation Land.

On the ground floor you will find another deck/porch that leads you either to the patio area, or out to 180 FT of remarkable shoreline. There you will enjoy a shallow sandy beach, boat ramp, and dock. Both decks and patio areas are furnished with comfortable seating/tables for relaxing outdoor living. All beds complete with linens/blankets/pillows. You will need to supply your own towels. Laundry room has washer and dryer. Sorry, no cats or children under the age of ten years old. Well mannered dogs are welcome with proof of vaccinations/shots. Any questions, just give us a call? References provided from previous guests. We want your stay on Calef Island to be the best ever.

Read underneath a canopy of trees, swim off the dock into cool clear waters, or kayak this 3.5 mile lake. Then dine on the deck or patio area, listen to the sound of loons, and watch one of the best sunsets you have ever seen!

Rain or shine there is plenty to do in this seacoast region. Portsmouth is just 17 miles away with its nearby beaches, deep sea fishing, and cultural events. The National Trust For Historic Preservation honored Portsmouth for their 'commitment to historic preservation and community revitalization'. There are only 12 honorees recognized nationally.

Fish and swim, boat and golf, shop and sun...a week will never be enough!
