This house is located on one acre of land. It has a beautiful lake view with 375 feet of lake frontage including a beach. Vacations here can be quiet due to the lack of lake activity in the summer. It will feel like you are here by yourself because of the woods on either side sheltering the house from the neighbors. The bedrooms are configured as follows: 1 bedroom has a king size bed, 1 bedroom has a queen size; two bedrooms have twin beds. Eight people can easily be accommodated. We could even set up a one-person portable cot in one of the bedrooms with the twins which might aid some families with young kids. There is a very comfortable porch that wraps around the north and east sides of the house. The gas grill is located on this porch. There are 2 kayaks and a paddle boat available. The entrance to the water does not drop suddenly drop off, it is very gradual allowing youngsters to play in the shallow portion without fear of getting over their heads quickly. A standby generator provides automatic power in the unlikely event of a power outage. The entire house is Wifi enabled with cable and netflix available.

About Dick Conant
Dick and Bev purchased this property in 2001 for a summer retreat from the hot confines of Texas. They loved it so much they decided to move here and live permanently year round. So the house and the property isn't just rental property .. it's their house that they personally live in 10 months each year. They rent out only in July and August.

Why Dick Conant chose East Wakefield
Dick and Bev have discovered this house to be their 'home of belonging' because it fits their lifestyle so perfectly. It has everything a family would need in a vacation residence: food accessories, towels, bed linens, pots & pans, waffle iron, Keurig coffee machine with a handy supply of various coffees, washer-dryer, some games and many other items.

Perfect location on the lake
Right off the main road, is a beautiful location with lake beach and trees. Communication was fantastic and the ammeties made us feel welcome. We loved the kyaks and paddle boat too. Quiet part of the lake with no noisy neighbors! Room for the whole family!
Very kind words. Much appreciated. We love the fact that the house is so close to the main road so there is not much dirt road driving. Plus the house location with the trees on both sides gives you the feeling that you're all alone without neighbors pressing in. You were looking for quiet and serene; and you found it. Thanks again for your comments.
Great getaway vacation home!
This home is off the beaten path which allows for real downtime and peace & quiet, yet is close enough for day trips to Portland, North Conway, Storyland, and much more! The view is spectacular, especially at sunset. We alternated between fishing, swimming, and kayaking right out the back door and rocking on the porch with a book and a beautiful view! Dick & Bev are wonderful hosts who went to great lengths to make us feel welcome in their lake house.
Terri - We agree with what you mentioned about rocking on the porch with a book and enjoying the view and the coolness of the air. We generally get a slight breeze that makes the day feel cooler than it otherwise might be. We're glad that you enjoyed that as well.

Week in August 2018
The lake house was absolutely beautiful. It had everything we needed for our week stay. Lake was clean and perfect for our 2 young grandchildren plus all adults. Bev and Dick were awesome answering any questions we had. They even had home made cookies and lemonade waiting for us when we arrived. We all had a wonderful relaxing time
We knew you had a concern initially about your 2 very young grandchildren having a good time, so it's very satisfying for us to hear they loved the home and lake as if it were their own. The beach area is great for sand-castle-making and the inflatibles helps keep them in the water, but safely. Bev & I are pleased that our place worked out so well for your family.
Lake Belleau Cabin
We spent 6 days at this delightful property. We wanted a house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and this turned out to be the perfect choice. When we arrived there was a welcoming letter from the owners and a tray of homemade cookies, lemonade in the refrigerator and a basket of s'more supplies! The house is charming and spacious, with a wonderful covered deck that has a gorgeous view of the lake and private sand beach. We spent everyday down at the beach and used the paddle boat and kayaks. There is also a picnic table, fire pit and covered glider by the water. My granddaughters ages 4 & 6 loved the beach and the flat back yard to play. The long driveway was great for chalk drawing and riding their scooters. The lake is also very quite and peaceful. The sunsets were amazing too. We would definitely return again to this lovely setting.
I can remember your questions about whether the lake would be adequate for very young children or would there be a big drop-off that would necessitate you choosing to access the lake elsewhere. That issue was definitely settled and I'm quite pleased that you stayed right there and didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. It was such a pleasure having your wonderful family as guests this summer.
A great family getaway!
Thank you Dick and Bev for the use of your wonderful home! It is warm and welcoming! It was a nice surprise to find homemade cookies waiting for us! They were delicious! The sandy beach with gently sloping lake entry were perfect for our two grandsons! Plenty of room for all eight of us with room to spare for our lab! The house was clean and the beds very comfortable! We shared multiple meals on the deck overlooking the lake! The sunsets were stunning! Thank you again for the wonderful stay on Lake Belleau!

A great family retreat....
Perfect home for family and friends. Very accommodating to all ages. Beautiful lake. And spectacular sunsets.
The sunsets are amazing and it's so nice to see the beams of remaining sun sparkle over the top of the water in the evening.
Dick & Bev
The property is located on one of the seven lakes in this town.
