Property description

Listen to the loons at our ultra private, newly renovated waterfront Post & Beam home located in a small waterfront community in Tuftonboro NH. Only 10 mins to Wolfeboro, our home features pine floors, a newly renovated kitchen with stainless appliances/dishwasher, granite countertops, Franke sink, Parma faucet and breakfast bar, new full bath, large living room with high ceiling and exposed beams, deck overlooking water, fireplace, two bedrooms with queen beds and a large loft with 2 twin beds, all new beds and mattresses. We have a new 12x32 screened-in porch. High speed wireless internet, unlimited long distance phone in the U.S., HD cable tv, 32' HD flat panel TV w/dolby 5.1 surround sound, DVD/CD and iPod connection. We have a high efficiency washer/dryer and ping pong table in basement. Located on a quiet lake with super clean water (oligotrophic), 160' of pristine & private waterfront with over 15 ft depth of visibility. Fully furnished. No pets. Minimum 1 week rental.

About Camp Beech: Camp Beech, our waterfront home is a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This is our vacation house. A neighbor best described the experience by saying 'time moves slowly on Lower Beach Pond'. The lake is very quiet, filled with wildlife (rainbow trout, brown trout, small and large mouth bass for fishing and a loon family we see daily). We even saw a moose swimming last year! Our home is great for relaxation, reading a book on the deck, lying in the sun or hammock, water sports or visiting North Conway's outlets for some retail therapy (35 mins away) and the town of Wolfeboro for fine dining or shopping (10 mins away). In addition to our shoreline property, there are 2 Hidden Valley Association beaches you will have access to which are great for family days, building sand castles and swimming, both are a few minutes walking distance. Bring your racket because there are tennis courts in the association. We hope you enjoy your stay and go home very relaxed!

About the Lake: Our home is located in a small, private community in Tuftonboro NH called Hidden Valley. Our vacation home is located on Lower Beach Pond which is a small Oligotrophic lake with a sandy bottom. Wikipedia defines these lakes 'to have low algal production and often have very clear waters, with high drinking-water quality.' There is a maximum of 10 horsepower boats on the lake. More common, however, to the water are canoes, sail boats, fisherman, and swimmers. Paddling around on surfboards is our preferred method of water transportation. What is yours? Swimming across the lake is also a fantastic way to start your day! We have a large floating cedar raft roughly 35-40ft from shore for relaxing and lying in the sun. Another attraction is Camp William Lawrence, a boys camp that my husband attended, see their website below. If the wind is just right, you can barely make out revelry at 7:30 AM signaling the beginning of another wonderful day for the campers and for you at Camp Beech

Special Referral Offer: If you have visited Camp Beach or are visiting this site and believe someone you know would like to rent our home, please email Carl. If your friends stay at our house during the off season, we will be happy to send you a $100 referral fee after their stay. Please make sure whoever is staying with us drops your name so we can thank you appropriately after their stay.

People who are often are able to stay with us during the off peak season would be those without school aged children and retirees. The nice thing about the off season, such as the beginning of June, or Mid September through October, is that many of the tourists have left, the lake is warm, the weather if often breath taking, and you'll be lucky to see ANYONE on the lake. It's just that quiet and private!

So if you fall into the category of being able to rent in the off season, take advantage of even greater peace and quiet.

The loft upstairs is our favorite room in the house, containing two twin beds with a desk and chairs for lounging as well as a beautiful view of the lake. We have a nice book shelf upstairs that contains several well known authors as well as games for both children and adults - often times we find ourselves playing scrabble until the morning (we have a large dictionary for questionable words!) and connect-4 is also a favorite. All rooms feature new Adirondack style log beds with new mattresses. All linens will be provided, sheets are 200+ thread count, and we ask you put them in the washer before you leave so the cleaner can prepare for our next guests.

Other Amenities

  • Our kitchen is also newly renovated and we decided to add luxuries that are not often found in a typical rental at our price point. As mentioned earlier, we have granite countertops, new stainless appliances and plenty of cooking utensils. Our breakfast bar has 3 stools for casual dining. We have a dining area that can seat 4 comfortably for a nice candlelight meal. We also recommend using our dining table on the deck to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Our living area features a comfortable large couch with a reclining chair and some bean bags. We have an entertainment center with surround sound speakers. Our property is secluded from other homes offering lots of privacy. We have trees on both sides of the house down to the water and our shore front property is cleared with private swimming. There are 2 granite rock steps to the water and a sandy start for swimming - we recommend swimming to the rock across the lake. We have a small dock/mooring to tie a canoe or small sailboat....moreless

We feel that we do not have a lot of competition at our price point. For those willing to spend $3000 a week, that will buy you a different home. For those who do not want to spend at that level, you will find out home to be clean and updated. Our home is on one of the cleanest bodies of water in the lakes region, and there is very limited boat traffic making for a relaxing and quiet environment

A deposit of half of the lease amount is due with contract to reserve your vacation week or long weekend. Then, no less than 30 days prior to your stay date, the remainder is due which includes the second half of the lease amount, the cleaning fee, the NH State Tax and the security deposit.
