Property description

***NOTE:
We are booked solid for the 2015 season. We start booking in January if you are interested please contact us at that point. Thank you!!

This is one of the oldest and most loved places on Lake Winnipesaukee! It was built by my great grandfather in about 1899, and it still looks exactly the way it did then. The cabin sits on 250 feet of pristine Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront. We have a natural sandy walk-in beach. There is a dock to tie your boat up to and a deck that sits on the lake edge. We face west in a partially secluded cove with fabulous view of the amazing sunsets and mountains.

There is much history in this rustic cabin which you can feel when you walk in. It feels homey and comfortable. We have a big wood fireplace which makes up the heart of the cabin. Many nights even in the summer you will find guests making a fire and sitting in the antique rocking chairs, just to hear the crackle of the fire and feel that old world charm.

We have a 16 foot dock which can be used to tie up boats or fish off of. It also one of the many places to relax and watch the sunsets.
