Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I am the Caretaker of this very special home. My Daughter and I run the fun here.

Why the Owner Chose Gilford, NH, USA:
This property is a well kept secret. The original home was built in 1897 as a Grand Victorian Cottage by AV Lincoln, the largest property owner in Charlestown,MA which was at the time the epicenter of Boston. Mr. Lincoln was the real-estate consultant for the railroad, which was booming at the time. Mr Lincoln sighted the home perfectly in such a way that it always is sunlit with the undisputed best view of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Ossipee mountains found anywhere.

The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
Every day is beautiful from The Lincoln Cottage, rain or shine. Watching a weather event from here is alost as good as a sunny day. Everything you need for a home away from home is here at the Lincoln Cottage.
