Property description

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT DO WEEKEND RENTALS. Min. is 7 nights in July & Aug, 5 nights all other months.

Have you had your fill of dowdy, musty rentals? Do you appreciate the aesthetics of a truly beautiful home with quality furnishings and all the amenities, in a gorgeous setting? Then you've come to the right place.

We fell in love with this stunning wooded, lakefront lot and worked with an architect to design a custom home that would do it justice. The result is this 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home whose bedrooms ALL face the lake, and whose great room will instantly relax you -- it's that serene and beautiful, with its full wall of windows overlooking the pond.

Relax on the screen porch, on the patio, or on the master bedroom's balcony -- the views are glorious in every direction, no matter where you choose to hang out. Or jump off the private dock into the crisp, refreshing waters of our tranquil no-motorcraft pond. Three kayaks, a canoe and a floating dock with built-in sunbathing chaises are yours to enjoy. If you want your kids to make friends, just walk up the road to one of two sandy, shared neighborhood beaches, one of which has a basketball court.

Our home, dubbed 'Lakehouse Heaven,' is in Madison, just outside North Conway -- which offers all the restaurants you could ask for, plus tax-free shopping (take your pick: outlets, handcrafts, antiques, or all three), mini-golf, movies, summer stock theater, and nightlife. And better yet, we are right in the heart of the glorious White Mountains, offering hiking, biking, rock climbing, paddling, secluded swimming holes, plus numerous ski resorts offering summer fun in the form of mountain slides, zip lines, and more.

This house is well suited to sharing by two families, since 2 bedrooms are on the first floor and 2 are on the second, with custom-tiled bathrooms both upstairs and down. There are queen size beds in the upstairs master bedroom and in one of the downstairs bedrooms. The second downstairs bedroom has a pair of twin beds, and the final upstairs bedroom has a double bed plus a twin-size trundle. There is a daybed in the loft and a finished walkout basement with twin-size futon couch and twin-size LL Bean sleeper chair.

The loft also offers a comfortable desk, for those who need to get work done while on vacation. (The house comes with wi-fi.) The Master Bedroom boasts a private balcony with views of the pond and the hills beyond.

A full laundry room and walkout basement rec room add to the home's family-friendly appeal. The kitchen is a cook's dream, with high-end stainless appliances, the quietest Bosch dishwasher on the market, and a layout designed for multiple cooks. Or treat yourselves to dinner out, at a wide variety of nearby restaurants.

This house will not disappoint -- except when the time comes to leave!!

Summer fun nearby includes hiking in the White Mountains, picnicking at waterfalls, tubing or kayaking on the lazy, lovely Saco river, 'adventure elements' (mountain coasters, alpine slides, and zip lines) at nearby ski resorts (Cranmore, Attitash), mountain biking, etc.

Power boat/waterskiing enthusiasts can put in at Madison's Silver Lake, just 3 miles from our house.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We've always loved the White Mountains, particularly the hiking and climbing. A few years ago, we decided to pursue our dream of owning a vacation home here. At first, we looked at existing houses but after visiting countless cramped, poorly laid out, depressing spaces, we opted to build from scratch. We worked with a terrific architect and masterful custom builders, resulting in a stunning, serene getaway - the lake house of our dreams. We are happy to share it with you; we are certain you will find it a magical place for a family vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Eidelweiss Village, Madison, NH, USA:
This location is absolutely brilliant! It's just a few miles from the eastern terminus of the Kankamaugus Highway, that phenomenal scenic drive that bisects the lower half of the White Mountains. Hiking trailheads abound on either side of the road, and the Swift River offers itself up as a summer playground. In winter, there's downhill skiing, X-C, snowshoe hikes, and ice skating. And if you're car-free you can easily get to this house by bus from the Boston area and Logan Airport, using the Concord Coach line. We're just a short taxi ride away from the Conway Village bus stop.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The call of the loons never fails to take our breath away... The swaying of the trees right outside the second-floor windows creates the feel of living in a tree house... The fire pit on the patio beckons, and we gather around in the evenings, roast s'mores and sing songs... On a rainy day, nothing beats doing a jigsaw puzzle while a cozy (gas) fire warms us in the stone fireplace... The cook top faces the living area -- how nice it is to chat with friends seated on the barstools, while you prepare the meal. This is the kitchen we've always dreamed of, lovely and logically laid out. Its multiple workstations lend themselves to multiple helpers... Or if you prefer, barbecue all your meals on the gas grill out on the patio.
