About Tom & Paul
The lake house was built by Tom and Paul's father when they were only four and two years old. They grew up spending their summers here - boating, waterskiing, swimming, sailing, and Skee-Ball & Air Hockey @ Weirs Beach! Hiking in the spring and fall. Skiing and skating in the winters. Now the extended family spends as much time at the lake as they can, enjoying every minute of it. (And, yes, "the kids" still play Skee-Ball & Air Hockey!)
Tom & Paul purchased this House in 1971
Why Tom & Paul chose Moultonborough
This family-owned property has seen four generations pass though its doors. Currently owned by Paul & Tom. Our families enjoy spending time at the lake and take pride in our home, frequently making improvements in the "off season." Our new kitchen combined with the updated living and dining areas is the focal point of the interior. While the whole family has worked in the construction industry for decades, Paul, who works for an upscale remodeling company, took it upon himself to create the perfect kitchen to match the existing space. He spent countless hours designing the layout to maximize space within the challenging footprint as well as blend the materials to match the existing finishes in addition to creating a more modern and functional design. We hope you enjoy its beauty and functionality as much as we do! And in 2017, we completely remodeled the lower level, including a new granite bathroom designed by Paul, hardwood floors, new furniture and additional finishes.
What makes this House unique
While this home is spacious and very comfortable, what sets it apart is its location. Black Cat Island is located in Moultonborough, and it is bridged so you can drive your car here. It is calm and secluded on our side of the island, but to the west and south is open water. The water is calm and protected, but crystal clear. Many protected areas of the lake have stagnant water. Many open parts of the lake have heavy wind and boat chop. Our property has the unique combination of clear and calm waters, deep water dock, and shallow swimming, all with beautiful lake and mountain views. It is truly a special place. As this is our second home, we take pride in keeping the property in the best shape possible. Each off-season we aim to upgrade furniture, rooms, and features, ensuring the most comfortable stay for our guests. Come spend a week or two and find out for yourself why this vacation home is a Black Cat Beauty!!!

A Week We Won't Forget!
When we arrived at the cottage, we found a welcoming note from our hosts along with a little gift of New Hampshire maple syrup! There were eight of us on the get-away week--five adults and three children--and we had a super time! Our bedrooms were so attractive and comfortable, and the living room and deck were lovely. Our kids were in the lake all the time, and only came inside when food was offered.
The cottage was pristine and the kitchen was updated with every sort of equipment a person could need for serving great meals. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts with coffee on the deck, and our dinners included a birthday "party". The view through the wall of windows facing the lake was spectacular, especially in late afternoon.
Dealing with Tom and Paul was very smooth and friendly. We were all so grateful to them for sharing their lovely home with us. What a lot of sweet memories we brought back with us at the end of our vacation! I would recommend this Black Cat Island Beauty to everyone looking for a great getaway spot!
Thanks for taking the time to write such a beautiful & detailed review! We're so glad you and your family enjoyed themselves at our home (most importantly the kids swimming in the lake!). We hope you can stay with us again in the future.
another great vacation
As always, the house was spotless and well organized, and we greatly appreciate how thoughtful the owners are in finding ways to enhance the renter's experience each year with improvement and upgrades that make the property even more attractive.
