About the Property

Golden Deer is A Charming, Secluded, Private, Two Bedroom, Seasonal NH Rental

This property offers an updated, charming, open concept style cottage on a true waterfront, and unique seclusion at the end of a private road, nearby one of the town's natural areas and many lovely upscale neighborhoods.

** BOOK NOW FOR YOUR 2017 VACATION **
This peaceful and natural setting is ideal for couples and small families seeking to get away and relax. Only non-motorized boats are allowed on the lake, enhancing the natural atmosphere and offering worry-free, enjoyable swimming for both children and adults absent the turbidity, wake and noise caused by fast-moving motorized watercraft. The lake is spring-fed with refreshing, therapeutic, clean water. And the property has a crystal-clear flowing artisan well.

Located on the premier side of the lake, you can also enjoy long afternoons of sunbathing and fun on your own lawn and private sandy beach, swimming, fishing, canoeing, pedal boat riding, hiking, walking, rock climbing, wildlife & bird watching, and viewing foliage, followed by spectacular sunsets!

Conveniently located just 35 miles north of Boston off Route 93, it is the perfect place to enjoy and explore New England. Enjoy the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, yet just minutes away are family-friendly, affordable and award-winning restaurants, Canobie Lake Amusement Park and tax free shopping at NH's Rockingham Park Mall. The cottage is also 30 minutes to Manchester and the seacoast, Hampton and Salisbury beaches, and is less than an hour to Portsmouth and Maine outlets.

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has owned and offered this preferred Southern New Hampshire vacation rental property since 2004. Lifelong New Englanders, we are design professionals who appreciate the lakeside lifestyle and charm of the era in which this cottage was built, yet we have updated the space with modern amenities and other enhancements that give it today's comfort and convenience. In raising our children at the lake, we understand what our guests may want or need to have an enjoyable stay here. The proof is in the kind thank-you notes that families write us in addition to their guestbook entries, the great reviews we receive year after year, and the many returning guests.

Why the Owner Chose Windham, NH, USA:
Located just a short distance from the MA/NH border, the cottage is a quick 30 minute drive to Manchester and the Seacoast, and under an hour to Boston. Nearby are Malls, Golf Courses, Canobie Lake Amusement Park, Verizon Wireless Arena, Museums, Award-Winning Restaurants, Cinemas and other entertainment and shoppes.
