Enjoy stunning views of the lake, mountains and wildlife from the many windows, skylights and sliders! Wake up to peace and serenity as you sip your morning coffee

from one of the three decks. Sandy beach with a gentle slope into the water, perfect for kids! Spend your days swimming, sunning, kayaking, canoeing or just relax with a great book. There’s plenty of room for your boat on our 30 foot dock, too! Some of the best fishing in the State of New Hampshire, and don’t forget to visit the Powder Mill Fish Hatchery located right at the start of the lake. Barbecue on warm summer nights or use the fully equipped kitchen to cook up your family’s favorites. Watch the moon and stars reflect

off the lake! Put your feet up and relax in the cozy great room with cathedral ceiling, flat screen TV, cable and WiFi. Finished walk out basement with flat screen, futon and slider doors that open onto deck overlooking the lake.

Waterfront Lake House with Sandy Beach on Beautiful Merrymeeting Lake
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews
Wakefield, MA, USA

Picturesque, peaceful and relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our two oldest grandchildren (9 & 14) in July, 2013. The house is located on Merrymeeting Lake, which is special in character and noted for its clean, clear water. The setting is picturesque,peaceful and relaxing. The house and waterfront are clean, comfortable and child-friendly, with easy and safe access to the sandy beach area for swimming and kayaking. The dock provides plenty of room for your boat and for lounging while you watch the kids enjoy the swimming platform. Additionally, there are pleasant views of the lake and surrounding hills from the house, decks, and lower level patio. We are looking forward to returning next summer.
