About Janet Wadsworth

About our family:

We have been enjoying summers on Kezar Lake for six generations. My grandfather bought our first cottage in 1944. We are a family of musicians and artists and scientists. We love hiking, fishing, boating and bird watching as well as just floating on the lake in a tube. Preserving the beauty of Kezar Lake and the surrounding area has always been important to us.

About our property:

We have 2 rental cottages on our five-acre property. They are private residences with their own gradual, sandy beaches, yards and docks and plenty of sun. Both are listed on VRBO and

The cottages are historically interesting properties.

Leaning Pines cottage (Listing #309030) was originally a general store in Center Lovell and was moved across the frozen lake to its current location many decades ago. It has undergone extensive renovation but the history can still be seen in the antique poured glass windows and New England cottage style. There is still one Lovell resident who recalls this grandfather telling him about moving the house across the frozen lake.

Our other cottage; The School House (Listing #305700) was one of Lovell original one room schoolhouses. This building was moved from its original location to the lake and has been extensively renovated. It still retains its architectural charm.

Janet Wadsworth purchased this cottage in 1945

Wonderful Lakefront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sadly, our wonderful week at "the Schoolhouse" on the shores of Kezar Lake will come to an end tomorrow. This property has everything you need for an enjoyable vacation in the beautiful White Mountain's lake region. Depending on your personal interests, you can swim, boat and relax by the lake all day or you can head off to North Conway for shopping, nightlife and tourist attractions. For the more adventurous types, you can enjoy some of the best hiking and river canoeing found anywhere. Whatever you do, make sure you stop by Ebenezer's Pub. It's just two miles up the road and it has been named the No. 1 beer destination in the world with over 800 different beers on site (and pretty good food, too).

When you return to the Schoolhouse after a long day of vacationing, you will truly feel like you are "home." It seems like Janet has thought of everything. If you need it, the Schoolhouse has it. The interior is decorated with care to provide a warm and easy New England living environment. Everything is extremely clean and well maintained. We will definitely recommend this property to all of our friends and we look forward to staying here again in the future.

Lovely cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at the Schoolhouse! The cottage itself is very peaceful, comfortable, clean and well-equipped. There is a large grassy yard to play in and our 4 year old loved digging in the sandy beach and swimming in the lake. The lake is a great place for kayaking and fishing. The Lovell area is close to terrific hiking, Storyland and other kid-friendly activities. We are looking forward to returning.

A wonderful, relaxing spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at the School House! The house itself is very clean and very comfortable. Janet is extremely accomodating and made sure we had everything we needed. We loved the kayak and spent a lot of time exploring this beautiful lake with it - when we weren't relaxing on the dock, fishing, swimming, and sunning ourselves on the float, watching the loons swim by. It's an easy trip to Sunday River where we had a great time on the zip line and mountain biking, as well as shopping and dining in North Conway. Thank you!

charming lake front cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on the lake view porch you can hear the loons crooning and the melodies drift across the lake from the music resort. We were transported to another world. Sunset drinks on the dock and floating on the lake were favorite past times.Truly a 1st rate vacation spot. The house was great - clean, comfortable with everything needed for a great vacation.
