This property has been exclusively designed for weekly luxury vacation rentals. It has never been and never will be used for permanent residents, nor does the owner ever live in the property. As such, the property is guaranteed to be available for guests who would like to return each year, as many of our guests do.

Our calendar is accurate. This property is available for full-week rentals only during the summer. Weekends and partial weeks are available during the off-season as indicated in our rate schedule. We DO NOT accommodate functions or events on the property of any sort (weddings, large reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, groups larger than 14 people, etc..) as this property is in a residential neighborhood with full-time residents on both sides of the property.

NOTE: IF YOU SEE THIS PROPERTY LISTED ON CRAIG'S LIST, OR ANYWHERE OTHER THAN VRBO OR HOMEAWAY IT IS A SCAM. We do not list anywhere other than vrbo.com and homewaway.com.

About Andy

I grew up coming to Lake Winnipesaukee with my parents and always dreamt about having a home of my own on the lake. My wife and I rented for many years on the lake and finally a decade ago our dream became reality when we built a home large enough to house our family; 3 kids and 2 Labradors. This peaceful location seems to wash away months of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. That’s why we fly here (with our dogs) from our home in Oregon every summer! I travel extensively for work and haven’t found anywhere as beautiful or unique as this lake.

A few years ago we purchased another home, in the same neighborhood, also on the lake. We recently finished its extensive purpose-built remodel and now it is available as a seasonal high-end luxury rental. My wife and I rented high-end houses for many years on the lake so we knew exactly what we wanted to find when we rented a home for our vacation. As a result, when we built this luxury rental property, we put in all of the features and amenities that we felt we would want ourselves in a high-end rental. We built this home with multi-generational family vacations in mind, where you have two or three couples looking for a "no-compromise" setting to enjoy a week's vacation. Literally, no expense has been spared in creating this fabulous home. Also, we are dog friendly ... we travel with our dogs and we want you to able to as well. So come and enjoy what we fly 3,100 miles for each summer! Check out our reviews, you wont be disappointed.

Andy purchased this house in 2009

Why Andy chose Moultonborough

Moultonborough has the best overall location on the big lake. It is easy to get to, close to a wide variety of restaurants and features clear, calm water. At only 30 minutes from route 93 and 15 minutes to Weirs Beach, the location is both convenient and quiet. Enjoy more than five high-end restaurants within 15 minutes, or a host of other 'North Country' eateries within the same short distance. Grocery shopping, gas, hardware stores and fresh vegetable stands are also within 5-10 minutes away. There is also a gourmet butcher shop featuring high-end meats, fish, prepared foods and wines within a 10 minute drive.

What makes this house unique

This house has been optimized for large groups and multi-generational families seeking a comfortable retreat from everyday life. Six bedrooms assure privacy, four bathrooms mean no waiting in line and 8-tons of central A/C throughout provides a respite from the heat and humidity so common to New England summers. The cove provides calm waters and no racing boats, which makes it ideal for swimming, kayaking and fishing. The house is on a very quiet cul-de-sac, where kids can play on the street safely. The streets of this secluded development are quiet and ideal for morning or afternoon walks. The beach is large, level and natural, not a 'perched' beach or rocky shoreline which seem to be the norm for many other properties on the lake. The beach is very well suited for small children or the elderly who love to play in the natural sand or interact with the small frogs and turtles nearby.

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

The private beach is a great place to spend the day. We took out the kayaks, paddle boat, paddle boards and the rest of the water toys. The kitchen was well equipped to allow us to prepare meals. The property is exactly as advertised and in great shape. We felt right at home after arrival. Everything is well stocked, clean and well maintained. We would go back any time.

Andy, the owner, was warm, helpful and welcoming--both during the booking process and during the visit. Our whole family had a great time

Quiet cove, lovely house, accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need short of a power boat to keep the kids and adults active or relaxed. Water toys, fire pit, lawn area, beach, dock...

The house is well stocked with the basics and more upon arrival.

The owner is friendly and hands off, but available should you need something.

Great experience overall. 5 star.

Wonderful location and great home layout

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 members of the family (3 generations) at Loon Lodge in July. The house is situated in a great location, and it was very clean when we arrived. We loved the kitchen and great room area, and the group spent many hours congregating there, when we weren't out on the really nice sandy beach or enjoying the lake on a pontoon boat we rented and kept at the dock all week. There was plenty of bedroom space and bathroom facilities for all to be comfortable. The owner is in the neighborhood and made clear that he would be available, if needed. But other than stopping by with his wife to greet us when arrived, we did not see him and had no need to call no him. As an added note, making the arrangements with the owner for the rental was straightforward and I really appreciated his communication along the way. Great place to stay on Lake Winnipesaukee, and I highly recommend it!

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a great week at Loon Lodge. Our family (three generations) including two Brittany Spaniels, all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The house is beautifully appointed with lots of space allowing everyone their own private space. The downstairs rec room was especially appealing to our teen aged grandsons. The waterfront with its sandy beach and 40 foot dock was enjoyed by all and provided easily accessed docking for the pontoon boat we rented from a nearby marina. There were lots of water toys provided with a selection to suit all ages and abilities. Andy and Laurie have thought of pretty much everything anyone could expect or hope for, including charging stations in the bedrooms for your electronic devices. ,They have a home nearby and are accessible if needed, but were in no way intrusive. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of space for several folks to work at the same time. There is an incredible ice making machine that can meet almost any demand.

All in all a great experience which we hope to duplicate some time in the future.

Awesome family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational group spent a week at this lovely home. It has a great kitchen, which we put to good use cooking all meals for our gang. The two dining spaces with banquet sized tables-one inside and the other on the screened in porch - allowed us to share meals together. We all enjoyed the lawn and various games such as corn hole and bacci. The small fry in the group loved playing at the sandy beach. Everyone had fun on the water toys- stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, and floats. Great location close to town for grocery shopping, tennis courts five minutes away, and easy access to great hikes in the mountains. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay.

If I could pick more stars I would!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing, and really made the first family reunion in years one we will remember for a lifetime.

This was the first time four generations of our family was together. There were 13 of us, ranging in age from 6 months to 75 years. I was worried we'd be piled on top of each other but this was completely not the case. Great space for the littlest ones to sleep comfortably at night while the adults caught up. More than enough space to spread out and everyone could claim some personal territory. Lots of bathrooms. Plenty of TVs so those who wanted to watch could, without bothering those who didn't. Huge kitchen very well stocked and amenable to cooking. Great grill and corn cooker outside that got their fair share of use. Two fridges that kept us well stocked. Two washer and driers which was key to keep us in fresh towels, as we could not get enough of the beach. Oh, the BEACH!

We rented this house with the intent we'd use it as a home base to explore the region. We had lots of things planned. Well, we did about 10% of them. We had such a great time at the house, on the beach and playing in the water with the already well described INCREDIBLY well stocked beachfront. Someone was always out on a SUP, kayak, paddleboat, inflatable or canoe while someone was playing badminton on the lawn. Seriously, we opened the shed and even the adults were like kids in a toy store. We spent so much time in the water (which was VERY warm) and had a blast. Three generations splashing around, reconnecting like we were all at summer camp. Good fishing (for the little ones) and snorkeling around the little inlet too. We were going to rent a boat but honestly never got around to it because we were already having so much fun with the non motorized water toys. We had several fires in the pit as well which was great!

The house itself is beautiful and decorated just how I would like to have my home. Beds were very comfortable. Andy and his sister were so so nice and easy to deal with. They put together a binder of fun things to do in the area and I wish we had more time to go through everything!

I can't say enough nice things about this experience. It really will always be a very special place and time for our family; as people age and move away you never know how many more adventures like this you'll have together. Thank you Loon Lodge! (At the end of the trip my sister bought us all a stuffed loon to commemorate the week, and it's sitting atop my mantle now!)
