Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, screened porch with view of Center Harbor Bay

This classic New Hampshire cottage, neatly kept, simple, no-frills yet possessing an old-fashioned charm that many refer to as 'spirit-renewing'. Colonial Pines sits on the edge of picturesque Center Harbor Bay.

THE SPACE:

Simple lakeside charm. Knotty pine interior. Cottage #1 accommodates up to three guests. It has one bedroom with a double bed, bureau, and closet. The living room has a futon, comfortable chairs and TV, a closet and small dresser. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, toaster, and a drip coffee maker. All dishes, silverware and pots and pans are provided.

Food or meals are not provided. Local supermarket is less than a mile away.

The cottage has two porches - one screened in with table and chairs for dining and relaxing.

Our location is in a quiet non-commercialized area, assuring our guests of privacy. The cottage has a wonderful view of the lake and surrounding woods.

Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing.. There are few locations on the 'big lake' that offer so much privacy without a long drive to the store and services. Restaurants and groceries are only 2 minutes by car or boat. Restaurants ranging from family fast food to gourmet meals are within a couple of miles.

GUEST ACCESS:

One hundred fifty feet of sandy swimming with gradual slope, two wharves, swim raft, stone fireplace by lake for cook-outs, outdoor shuffle-board court and table tennis.

For our guests we offer complimentary use of two canoes.

We also offer KAYAK RENTALS.

There are many islands to explore by water. The harbor is protected on three sides which makes it ideal for canoeing and kayaking.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:

We live on the property and assist our guests with check-in, boat rentals, finding local attractions, and any other way we can. One of our reviewers says it best: "Cindy and Gary are experienced hosts who know how to welcome guests and offer assistance, but also leave space for privacy. They are genuinely nice people, and we felt completely comfortable with them."

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

We are within walking distance to the quaint town of Center Harbor. There are wonderful little shops in town including Keepsake Quilting, a bookstore, a grocery store, ice cream stands, restaurants and even a gazebo for band concerts on Friday evenings.

Hiking, antiquing, golfing, outlet shopping are just a few of the many activities close by.

Close to the White Mountains and Gunstock Mountain Recreation area where you can enjoy many outdoor activities. There are lots of hiking trails for all abilities within a short drive.

GETTING AROUND:

Some guests bring bicycles.

A great family tradition is walking to town for ice cream on a hot summer night.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

Weekly rentals Friday to Friday during July & August. We prefer to rent a minimum of three nights other times of the year because of the cleaning involved with a cottage, but a 2 night minimum will be considered. Events and holiday weekends may require a longer minimum stay. If you're looking to stay for a night or two please consider our Lodge Suite. We do not provide sheets and towels. If it's not possible for you to bring your own please let us know. A fee will apply. A deep well on the property assures great drinking water. Boat slips available if you bring your own boat. Additional cost for boat slips. Please inquire. Plenty of parking for trailers. Close to all area attractions. Cruise Lake Winni on the MS Mount Washington (it departs from Center Harbor on Monday's), hike in the White Mountains, tour Castle in the Clouds, attend a concert at Meadowbrook, shop at the Outlet stores in North Conway, go zip lining in Lincoln, ride the Cog Railroad up Mount Washington. Just to name a few of the many things to see and do in our beautiful area!

surpassed expectations, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We rented for a week the small cabin nearest the lake. Comfortable bed, basic shower, small kitchen but thoughtfully equipped, good WiFi for work -- essential for us. Hosts Cindy and Gary were very accommodating and accessible -- they live in the lodge on the property. Good-quality canoes come with the rental. Cottage is slightly bigger and brighter than what its pictures portray. Easy-access swimming and gradual entry, OK for kids. Beautiful spot on the lake. Center Harbor, with grocery, is 2-mins by car, 10 mins walk, or less. Meredith, a more consequential town, is ~ 10 minutes' drive. We enthusiastically recommend this property.

I loved this wonderful lake side cabin. How relaxing to be right on the water. The cabin was really clean and comfortable. Cindy and Gary were absolutely the best hosts!! I loved being able to walk down the lake and swim. Also put my kayak on early innthe morning. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. I would definitely return. The cabin was also accessible to hiked nearby

Beautiful lakeside cabin: ideal for romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This clean, ample cabin set on a slope was like a litte shangri-la! Comfortable with all the amenities you want for a relaxing getaway. Idyllic setting amongst tall trees, singing birds, and right up from a tidy dock and deck, where we sat and watched the sunsets. Very many fond momories after a stay of only 5 nights, including swimming in the clean water of the lake, sitting by the big fireplace, having coffe on the deck. Innkeepers Gary and Cathy wondefrful. Already planning to return.
