Property description

Escape your busy life at cozy 'Crystal Cove', lovely light renovated space with an all-wood, open-plan interior.

Enjoy views of beautiful Crystal Lake and the gentle mountains in the distance. The large wrap-around deck invites you to dine al fresco and listen to the loons.

Or relax on the screened porch a few feet from the water while the kids jump off the dock and swim out to the raft. 200' of private sandy-bottomed, paddle-in waterfront is yours to enjoy, perfect for little ones. Two kayaks and a canoe are waiting for you to explore the lake, PFDs provided.

Plenty of room for all the family with 4 bedrooms: two with queen beds, one with a full, and one with twin beds. Kids love sleeping on 2 twin mattresses in the open loft (watch your head!)

Private and secluded, yet only a couple minutes from convenient corner store for all your needs, including delicious fresh-baked breads and pastries on the weekend! A short 15 minutes drive takes you to Alton Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee with all large lake amenities, restaurants, shopping, mini-golf etc.

Board games and water toys provided but there is no TV at this home because time spent here is about being with family and getting back to the simple pleasures in life. Come and unwind!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a Massachusetts family with three boys. We fell in love with this beautiful cabin because it gives us the opportunity to take time out of our hectic schedules to enjoy family time together.

Why the Owner Chose Gilmanton, NH, USA:
This was the first house we saw! Nothing we saw later could compare...the location, right on the water and on a private road could not be more perfect. It is an easy drive to 'civilization', and yet feels like a complete escape.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love having the lake on our doorstep. Kicking off the day with a refreshing swim, or paddling out in a kayak to watch the sunset. It's perfect! And if we're feeling too lazy to make dinner, there's freshly made pizza and icecream just 5 mins away at the Gilmanton Ironworks Market.
