About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This quaint and cozy cottage is situated in the quiet and beautiful New Hampshire countryside making it a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage shares approximately 33 acres with our classic New England farmhouse. It is located roughly 100 feet from the house and around 200 feet from our privately owned sandy beach on peaceful Lake Winona. The next closest neighbor in any direction lives around 500 feet away. A country road divides our property in two with the house and cottage on one side and the lakefront and beach on the other. However, the traffic is minimal because we are located in a very rural area. The beach is a brief walk across the street and down a modest hill from the cabin. A limited, but beautiful, view of the surrounding mountains and the lake is visible from the cottage porch.

Enjoyed the beautiful serenity...

  • 4 of 5

Just what we needed. The cabin was small and had the basic necessities. Used the oven and charcoal grill for kabobs. Beautiful lake Winona was amazing! We used Bruce's kayak twice. Weather was phenomenal day after day. Bruce was a great host, respected privacy, but closeby if needed. Cabin was approximately 1/2 hour from Laconia and surrounding towns...enjoyed our stay immensely!

A sojourn and sequester... breathtaking beauty.

  • 5 of 5

This little place was a perfect getaway with everything I needed to clear out the mental clutter and appreciate the moment. The cottage is cozy and functional. I loved the screened-in porch, particularly during a fantastic thunderstorm one night. Lake Winona provided masterful sunsets almost every night and a canvas above for millions of starts. The dragonflies and then fireflies danced all round. With an impeccably manicured private beach, a kayak and a fire pit, evenings were magical. Bruce the proprietor has a sharp eye for gorgeous granite sculpture and landscaped beauty that is in harmony with the wildness of nature. He is also a fabulous host, so knowledgable about the surrounding area and a great person to talk to around the fire pit. At the same time he is so respectful of your space and privacy. I will definitely be back because one day, I want to take his John Deere tractor out for a spin!!! I loved the hiking and easy access to Squam Lake and the other incredible sites in the White Mountains.

The Name Says it all !

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the two of us. We lived in NH for 20 years and this was a return visit for family reunion and rest . Great area for drives and food.

Loved the beach, kayaks and bonfire. Maybe tennis next time on local courts.

Really nice meeting you Bruce! We will return.

Peaceful getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Bruce's place and it was as amazing as we remembered. The surroundings are just superb - we absolutely adore the private beach & the kayaks are great to explore the lake with its islands. The docks are also really nice - perfect for a morning yoga session!

Everything you need for a peaceful getaway...

We can't wait to return - thanks Bruce!

Very nice cottage. Just a short walk to private beach area on lake Winona. My wife and I enjoyed kayaking lake and a fire on the private beach area. Location very good for drives to areas of interest such as Mt. Washington, Lake Winnipesaukee and bicycle trails. Nice getaway for couples. The owner Bruce was very friendly and cottage very clean.
