About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)
Listen to the loons while you drink your morning coffee on our large open air porch right off the kitchen or on our private dock. Your closest neighbor is 1/2 mile away by water. Enjoy an afternoon on the screened porch or second floor deck. At night, make a fire in the fire pit down by the lake after your dinner you've cooked on the Weber gas grill. That's what we used to do with our kids.
You’ll find 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus a large open sleeping loft off the cathedral ceiling balcony.
The house sleeps 7 (4 adults and 3 kids max due to our well capacity). We have 2 1/2 baths (one full bath on the first floor), a great sound system, Netflix using our Roku internet system, a grand piano and DVD/VCR to play rentals you can get at the Errol General Store. Use our canoes or bring your own and tie up to our dock. Put your boat in at the Public Boat Launch on Rt 26. Bring your dog and enjoy miles of wilderness walks. You’ll go home rested, refreshed and rejuvenated.
We’re a short distance to exceptional fly and lake fishing, fabulous hiking, and flat and white-water paddling. There’s trout fishing on the Rapid River and Androscoggin. A short drive gets you to Grafton Notch and the Appalachian Trail for hiking. And of course, there’s paddling on the incomparable Lake Umbagog as well as the Androscoggin and Megalloway Rivers. The canoe is just steps away from the gorgeous covered deck right off the full kitchen.
