About the Property

2 bedrooms 1 full bath sleeps 6

This lakefront cottage is only 2.5 miles from Rt.125 on Swains Lake in Barrington, NH, on a private, wooded, 5-acre lot with a large shore frontage. Swains Lake is over 550 acres with swimming, boating and bass fishing. The cottage is 560 sq. ft., with an additional full-front screened porch overlooking the lake, providing a wonderful area for open-air dining and relaxing. Listen to the loons at night!
The cedar dock is suitable for boat docking. The house has two bedrooms and one bathroom (shower only, no tub). The living room connects to the dining/kitchen area (full-sized refrigerator, stove, oven, and microwave). One bedroom has a double bed, the other has twin-sized bunk beds, and the living room sofa pulls out to a queen-sized sleeper.
Pets are allowed with a deposit.

The cottage is 10 miles east of Durham (UNH), and a 30 minute-drive to Loudon NHIS racetrack, just 2.5 miles off Rt. 125. The lake offers bass fishing, boating, and swimming. In the fall, view New England’s foliage. Hampton Beach is a short drive away.

Shopping center is located 3 miles south on Rt.125, with a grocery store (Market Basket), movie and game rental store, state liquor store, Walgreens, and other small shops. Also on Rt. 125 is a 4-screen movie theater.

Visit Calef's Country Store (at the intersection with Rt. 9) for freshly-made donuts and bread in the morning, penny-candy, and snappy cheese, and other local goods. Also see The Christmas Dove gift shop, also on Rt. 9.

Local restaurants for seafood and home-style cooking can be found on Rt. 125 north and south of the cottage.

Other Activities: Biking
