Moultonborough house description

Big Bear and Little Bear Lodge overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee sleeps up to 15 people with five bedrooms, four baths, two living rooms plus a family room with sleeping area, a loft, and one-and-one-half kitchens. Just 400' +/- to the Long Island beach.

In the main house, the large, cathedral ceiling living room has a fireplace and is open to the dining and complete kitchen area. There is also a three-quarter bath and a bedroom with a queen and a twin bed on this main floor. We are in the process of remodelling so front of home will differ slightly from photo.

Upstairs there is a full bath, a master bedroom with a queen-size bed, a bedroom with a queen bed and a twin bed and a loft sitting area. The lower level has a sitting area with pop-up trundle bed that can create a queen-size bed, a large family room with a full-size air hockey table, a bathroom with shower, and a laundry area. 2700 sq ft.

Little Bear Lodge, to the left of the main house,has an additional 700 square feet of living space. This living room/dining area has a pull-out couch and dining for six. There is a large counter top area with a two-burner cooktop, microwave, griddle, and a coffee maker and a full size refrigerator. One bedroom has a queen-size bed and the other has two twins. There is a full bathroom and a small deck.

The home sits on a two-acre lot with horseshoes, volleyball, and other games - great for large groups of friends and family get-togethers. The home is just one lot back from the Long Island beach. Lifeguards are usually on duty during peak times. The boat launch is diagonally across the street.

The lodges contain all your basic kitchen utensils, dishes, and silverware. There are cherry hardwood and pine floors and the furnishings are in the mission and lodge style. There are three TV's with DVD and a gas grill. Cable TV and internet provided in main house only. Guests are responsible for their own linens and towels. Five cars maximum.

Winter Guests - Only the main home that sleeps 9 is available during the late fall through early spring. It is a great place for snowmobiling and ice fishing.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We love Lake Winnipesaukee and feel lucky to have vacationed here as kids. We enjoy just relaxing by the lake, kayaking or taking a refreshing trip in the boat. There are many public places to dock your boat that gives you access to wonderful restaurants, food shopping or even get ice creamby boat at 19 mile bay. Then take the kids wakeboarding or tubing. It doesn't get any better than Lake Winnipesaukee.

                  Why the Owner Chose Moultonborough:
                  Lake Winnipesaukee is the ideal place to spend time with family & friends. Large, very clean lake with lots of activities. This home is just steps away from the beach but without the water-front price tag. We bought this home due to the large lot and plenty of rooms for family and friends. Great place to be together but plenty of room to spread out when you need some quiet time. We liked the privacy of the large lot but visibility to the activities at the beach and boat launch.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  With lots of interior space we can have lots of friends join us and never feel cramped. And with 2 acres of land we can play volleyball, horseshoes and so much more.
