Property description

Very private cabin with a mile of private waterfront and 60 acres of nature on lake Winnisquam, NH and only 1 1/2 hours from Boston. On the grounds of historic Butternut Farm the cabin comes with a canoe, great views of the lake and mountains, excellent fishing, swimming, wildlife, fire pit, gas grill and all conveniences. It can be combined with 1 or 2 other cabins for larger gatherings or reunions. Only minutes from shopping and restaurants it offers the experience of privacy and nature the way we remember it as kids. We like to say it is 'close to everything but far from anything'.

Location:
We are 5 to 20 minutes close to every imaginable attraction from outlet shopping to theater, thai and chinese restaurants, sports bar, golf, water park, drive-in movie, arcades etc. There are walking trails on our property and mountain hiking within 30/45 min. Canoeing/kayaking is popular in the cove where swimming too is great as there is no motorboat traffic. Also popular is wildlife and bird watching (we have an osprey nest, fox with pups, wild turkeys, otters, fisher cats, beavers etc.). If you like fishing we have bass, pickerel, white and yellow perch, horned pout, etc. And the fire pit is a favorite attraction.

FAMILY REUNIONS:
We can accommodate 25 + persons when all 3 cabins are rented. The Ephraim Cabin, pictured here, is the normal gathering point with plenty of seating for everyone. When all 3 cabins are taken by the same group it includes 3 beaches, 2 docks, many trails, 3 canoes and paddleboat, swim float etc. etc.

Owner info

About the owner: I am a composer of classical music , known professionally by my full name Stephen Funk Pearson, and I play in a folk-rock band in which I play lead guitar, sing and write the songs. I am an avid traveller and nature lover and have hosted a Cambridge TV show for the last 10 years. I also work with 10 publishers helping libraries with their collection development. I'm a Vassar (BA) and Hunter College (MA) grad.

Why the Owner Chose Belmont:
I fell in love with the Cove as did my brother and it has been my goal to preserve the Cove and its unique character by purchasing the adjoining acreage and properties, by renovating the 1700's farmhouse and a 3rd cabin. Our family and friends used it for many years exclusively, only beginning to rent the cabins a few years ago by necessity.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Too many benefits to mention.
