About The Owner

I am in love with New Hampshire! It is in my blood and where I grew up. I have traveled all over the world and there is nothing like the true beauty and peace that you can find just sitting by the lake. I love to sit by the lake and relax with friends and family. Reading, relaxing and going fishing on the lake! I love to spend my down time in New Hampshire. We bought this house because I grew up on this lake! The house has been in and out of our family for the past 70 years. Most homes on the lake never go up for sale, they are passed down from generation to generation. We have made the house very comfortable as well as historic. It has been a journey remodeling the house an still keeping the historic enchantment. I have photos around the house of famous people I have met and worked with. I have tried to make the house very comfortable with luxurious soft linen. I want guest to love not only the peace and quiet but get a wonderful sleep in one of beautiful bedrooms. We love the many families that have returned year. You too can enjoy the New England Charm and find a secret place of tranquility. We have large yard with a wonderful horse shoe pit. We have many laughs over how to play a really good game. We often see ducks geese and sometimes deer in the yard.

Why The Owner chose Northwood

I grew up on this lake! The family's on the lake return year after year! We bought the house for many reasons. The house is part of american history and had been in our family many years. There are 11 lake s in Northwood. My family used to own a beautiful Inn on the other side of the lake in the late 50's. .

I love this part of New England! It is very peaceful and my father bagpipes for guest at sunset!

What makes this house unique

Location Location Location. You are only 1.5 from Boston, 6 hours from New York City. You truly feel like you are in the country! There is horseback riding only 5 miles away! The house is located in the World Famous 'Antique Alley' a true treasure hunt awaits you at every corner!

The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable kids will love the safari room . This is no camp! It is a beautiful historic house.

a dream house

  • 5 of 5

The Lakehouse is about as nice a retreat as you can find - with a beautiful lawn down to a large beach and lake - a comfortable and large interior space for comfortable family living - all within easy distance of shops, parks, and fruit orchards where you can pick your own blueberries, peaches, and apples.

Great Place to Relax and Enjoy NH

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I stayed for four days and enjoyed it immensely. John was extremely nice and welcoming and played the bagpipes which thrilled our three year old to no end. We fished everyday and made an excursion into Dover for the Children's Science Museum which I recommend for anyone with young kids. The house was clean, well maintained and inviting. We certainly hope to be back again.

Something for everyone and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful get-away for our family:) We brought our kayaks, borrowed Arlene's rowboat and spent wonderful, long, lazy days on Lucas Pond. John greeted us with a beautiful bagpipe perofrmance and was hpositable and friendly. The house has everything you would need and is perfect for the young and the old. We definitely would like to come back!
