Why Ruth or Seth Stevens chose Ossipee
This is located in a typical, quaint New England area with a small town feel, and affords plenty of ways to enjoy the countryside. Many growing-up years were spent here swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and mountain-climbing.

Great for summertime fun
Our family had a wonderful vacation in the Stevens’ comfortable cottage. Our toddler loved exploring the beach, the woods, the lake, and the new gazebo overlooking the water and the mountains. Ossipee Lake is a special place for our family, and the owners made our stay easy and pleasant.
An amazing place to spend your time
My family and I vacation yearly together in the month of July. This was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The views are breathtaking, the house is clean, with everything you need at your reach. The beach is absolutely perfect. The water was warm, clean, and inviting. I wish I could put into words how much my family and I enjoyed our stay here. You won’t regret spending time at this amazing place.
Thank you for your highly complimentary review! You have clearly captured a love for the place, and we so appreciate the care you took during your stay. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests!
The quintessential lakefront cottage.
An experience we will treasure always. Ruth and Seth were wonderful to work with from the get go and made everything simple, creating a perfect experience for all. Their lovely lakefront cottage seemed almost as if it were prepped in a Hollywood studio. The sites, sounds and smells were those of a quintessential New Hampshire lakefront cottage. We spent the week of July 4th enjoying their jewel on Ossipee Lake with our four children. The cottage was perfectly equipped for an out-of-state family. We wanted for absolutely nothing. My brothers pontoon boat made easy pit stops on the dock just off the sandy private beach. A wonderful grassy expanse between the cottage and beach made for a perfect wiffle ball field. The fire pit was enjoyed for late night s'mores and firework viewing around the big lake. Our only complaint is that the week came and went far too quickly! Thank you Ruth for everything. We hope to be back next year!
Located on the best part of the lake with large sandy beach and gradual waterfront. Beautiful views and sunrises. Very clean and spacious. The owners are very responsive and want to ensure your experience is a good one. Loved it!
Great Cottage. We really enjoyed our stay at this beach front cottage on gorgeous Lake Ossipee!
Cottage was super clean and has lots of space!
Thank you for posting your enjoyment of your stay at the cottage!
This house suited our family vacation to a tee. The location was great - easy on/off Route 16, yet secluded and very quiet. The views from the house/beach were breathtaking. The beach was a good size and never felt crowded even when the neighbors were out. The house itself was very clean, well appointed, and even more spacious than it appears in the pictures. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in their home and have really thought of everything when it comes to their renters' needs. In a perfect world, there'd be one more bathroom; other than that it's as good as it gets!
Thank you for your very complimentary review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the cottage and your stay there. You have found, like we have, that it's a pretty special place.
