About the Property
Lodge, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
The original cabin is now a living room with comfortable chairs and large sofa for reading, watching favorite movies, working on a jigsaw puzzle or enjoying views of the lake from every window.
Hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing, motor-boating, water-skiing and swimming are at your doorstep in spring, summer and fall. Waukewan Golf Course welcomes summer visitors to its course and 19th Hole. Winter brings cross-country and downhill skiing; Gunstock and Ragged Mountains are both close by, snowshoeing, sleigh rides through historic Meredith Village, and ice skating.
Loons gather in our protected cove on this hidden jewel in the lakes region. Lake Waukewan is a bit of a secret, and the residents prefer it that way. Not that Big Lake excitement is too far - Lake Waukewan rushes down the Mill Falls into Lake Winnipesaukee, just five minutes down the road by car.
if you’d rather enjoy the lake at a more leisurely pace, you may choose to rent a kayak or canoe and row to Waukewan Beach. Take a stroll into town for an ice-cream cone at Town Docks. Upon your return, you might just see fireworks overhead; or maybe it’s just the stars lighting your way back.
Keywords: Roomy three level contemporary waterfront in a protected cove. This updated home has a large open concept kitchen/dining/living area overlooking the water, plus five bedrooms and three bathrooms. There are three bedrooms on the main floor; one with a full bed, another with a set of twin bunks, and a third with two twin beds. A master suite on the second level has a queen bed, and the fifth bedroom, also upstairs, has a full. A large deck overlooks the trees and lake. The naturally landscaped yard leads to a small perched beach and two steps into the sandy-bottomed water. *Kayaking, boating, swimming at your doorstep.

Our lakehouse community consists of families like ours who value the tranquility and quiet, natural setting of Lake Waukewan. Guests who enjoy listing to the sounds of loons, catching a fish (or not!) off our dock, and a relaxing swim in the lake will appreciate this warm summer community. Parents will enjoy the quiet cove and our swim platform, and children will enjoy the resident bullfrogs who appear occasionally on our beach. The lakehouse is not a party house; rather, it is a place to connect with loved ones and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We are an active family with pets. We love the lake in all seasons, and discover something new with each visit. The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is one of our favorite places, at any time of year.
Why the Owner Chose Meredith, NH, USA:
When we were first married, we visited friends staying on Lake Wentworth in Wolfeboro, NH, and we fell in love with the area. My husband grew up vacationing in the Adirondacks, and the Lakes Region was reminiscent of those times he spent on the lake with his family.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
We thought we wanted a house on the Big Lake, but once we saw Waukewan, we knew it was the spot for us. We love our protected cove for swimming, and the tranquility of a smaller lake make kayaking and canoeing a joy. 'You will grow to love this lake,' one of our neighbors commented to us. And we have.
