Property description

This rustic former fishing camp has this three bedrooms sharing one bathroom plus two out buildings and is perfect for a family vacation or just a romantic lakeside getaway. The main house has a master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms with bunkbeds. The cozy living room with fireplace opens to a screen porch overlooking the lake. One of the two outbuildings is a one room bedroom in the woods for adventuresome youngsters and the other is a recently redone boathouse that has a futon and wonderful views of the lake and mountains.

The water in the house comes from the lake so bottled water is used for drinking.

The house comes with a dock and a canoe and there are kayaks, motor boats and sail boats available to rent at the local marina.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Bob came to New Hampshire as a boy and attended camp not far from Squam Lake. He has returned almost every summer since. Tricia is originally from North Carolina, but calls New Hampshire her spiritual home. She loves the simple living, hiking and the call of the loons on Squam. But our lab, Midnight, may enjoy Squam more than both of us put together.

Why the Owner Chose Center Harbor, NH, USA:
We bought this house to protect the simple way of life that is the hallmark of Squam Lake. It is all about the the woods, the lake and the wildlife here and we wanted to have a house that brought the outside in. We love to share this cabin with our guests and see the rejuvenation and renewal that happens here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What we love about our house is that it is out the peninsula, 2.5 miles from the main road. There are a few houses nearby but there is a lot of conservation land and wildlife around us. We also wanted a west facing dock to view the sunsets and feel the afternoon warmth.
