Franklin house description

The Blueberry Cove lakehouse is a secluded cottage with panoramic views of Webster Lake. Situated in a private cove and bordering the woods, the lakehouse is a perfect getaway for both families and couples. Enjoy reading a book in our hammock, swimming and fishing in the lake, or simply relaxing on the private beach only a few steps away from the front door. At night you can cuddle up with hot cocoa while gazing at the stars, roast smores at the firepit, or play music on the digital piano.

We are also proud to offer high-speed internet access, cable HDTV with HBO, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor gas grill, picnic table, canoe, 2-person kayak, rowboat, painting easel, air-conditioning in the bedrooms and in the livingroom, inflatables, downy pillows and covers, soft towels as well as washing machine and dryer. The quiet serenity of the Blueberry Cove lakehouse is ideal for artists, writers, bird watchers and nature lovers (ospreys, loons, hummingbirds and bald eagles are frequently in the woods around the house). On the property you can find many blueberry bushes and also strawberries and blackberries. In the garden we planted this spring some tomatoes and peppers for our guests to enjoy. There is also an herb garden. The freshly planted cherry and pear tree will still need some years before bearing fruits.
Beautiful Fall colors are all around the area and biking and hiking trails along Franklin's rivers invite to explore nature.
In winter ice fishing is possible on the lake. Different trails for snow shoeing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing are minutes away from the house and Rugged Mountain offers only 30 min away wonderful downhill skiing slopes.

          Location

          Rugged Mountain is only a 30 min drive away and offers excellent downhill skiing. So does Mount Sunapee (45 min). Mount Cardigan, Mount Major, and the White Mountains are within 1hr drive and invite for summer and fall hiking. Snow Tubing is great at Gunstock Mountain in Laconia. Two trails for snow mobiles are adjacent to Southern Webster Lake. Serene snow shoe trails of NH State parks are just minutes away from Blueberry Cove.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: We are a small family, and for years we have traveled around the world. We settled in the greater Boston area, and were exploring on the weekends all corners of New England. When we first discovered Webster Lake and saw this house and its location, we fell in love with it immediately and were overjoyed at the opportunity to purchase this house last year from family friends. Since then we've spent many weekends at this house, playing board games and painting and having an absolutely wonderful time. We hope you'll love our lake house as much as we do.

          Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
          Webster Lake itself is a wonderful lake. It warms up comfortably for swimming, is stocked with fish every year for fishing, has small islands and coves to explore kayaking. But most important of all, not too many properties border the lake, which keeps it from being overrun like bigger lakes in NH. Additionally our Bluebery Cove Lakehouse is situated on the meandering cove side which adds to its charm and feel of privacy.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Our sandy private beach is not more than ten steps away from the front porch. The house itself is furnished with the feel of comfort and sunshine in mind, and offers everything to make your stay a most wonderful vacation!
