About belinda tower

We are John and Belinda Tower, we own a docking company in Northwood for the past 8 years, being in this business we wanted to live on the lake like the customers we serve so we chose Bow Lake and this is where we have enjoyed living for the past 4 years.

belinda tower purchased this cottage in 2013

Why belinda tower chose Merrimack Valley

We purchased the cottage next to us because we wanted others like friends and family to enjoy, we decided to rent the cottage to the public so all can come and enjoy as well.

What makes this cottage unique

The serenity we enjoy after a long day at work is amazing! Come spend a week here and you will see for yourself!

Cozy cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was clean and comfortable, owners lived next door and were more than helpful and friendly.

Short walk to beach, which was clean, our grandchildren loved the beach and the paddle boards on the lake.

Great restaurant not far from cottage. Would like to return next year for another stay!

Cozy Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cove. Belinda put the lights on when she knew we were coming in the dark and greeted us. The driveway is a steep unpaved uphill but do-able.Rooms are as pictured, nice and clean with bureaus so we could unpack. The living room is spacious and open with a tempting big screen TV. The back room was great for viewing the ducks, dock and water. We had our breakfast and read out there. My sister wanted options of more board games, but we didn't get stranded inside enough anyway, We had on and off phone reception and even found wifi signals.

The kitchen had a great fridge (except no ice cube trays), stove and new coffee pot that we made use of. The water had a little rust taste so brought jugs of water. I used the tap water for coffee and it was fine.

The woodsy backyard has lots of chairs and and overhang under house so you can sit outside and stay dry and still enjoy the cove view. 2 kayaks were ready for us but we didn't get a chance to use. We walked in the quiet neighborhood and from shore saw a mother loon with 2 babies on her back and and eagle with a nesting eaglet. This was right near the sandy swimming beach and bridge fishing spot.

We weren't far from civilization: groceries, gas, restaurants, church and taverns. (We went to Johnsons for seafood and ice cream.) Just watch your speed.

Great Little Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I held a low-key bachelor party at this cottage. The owners, John & Belinda, live in the property next door and were wonderful, fun-loving neighbors. The cottage itself is cute, with plenty of room to sleep 8+ people. The property is supplied with paddle boats, canoes, and kayaks for water fun and a nice fire pit. I really cannot recommend this place enough.

Beautiful home and view

  • 5 of 5

This home is very cozy.. The pictures need to be up dated as the furniture has changed for the better in the living room and porch. They have a huge TV mounted on the wall with all stations including HBO which is great if it rains out. My family of 5 adults and granddaughter all loved it here.. The beds are very comfortable. John and Belinda go out of there way to please there guests . There are several restaurants in the area and grocery stores nearby. We will be returning to this hidden gem. Thanks John and Belinda for sharing your beautiful home ...

clean,cozy knotty pine cottage the way it should be not these huge homes that some put lakeside.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Always available but left you alone to enjoy your time at their cottage. Reasonable rental fee. Nice campfire pit to sit around at night. The only noise at night were the peepers,crickets,loons,and frogs which were great to listen to.we had an Eagle fly overhead while standing on the dock.stores for groceries or restaurants only ten minutes away.Johnson's steak and seafood and across the street an excellent diner for breakfast where you can buy different breads they make. I would rent this cottage again. Ken S.
