Property description

Our parents bought the property in the 1960's. In 1972 they built an addition and winterized the property. They lived there happily for many years and all of the children, grandchildren, and friends have fond memories of summers and winters at the lake. There is nothing more relaxing than warm summer days on the dock, sharing stories and watching the sunset over Dalton Mountain. In the winter you can cross country ski, snowmobile, and skate on lake, followed by hot chocolate in front of the large outdoor fireplace.

The children took ownership of the family home in 2012 and we began updating and renovating all of the rooms. Updating the patio and gardens is a work in progress. Our Dad was an avid and gifted gardener. His gardens and stonewalls were a great source of pride and we all continue to enjoy their beauty.

Car: Necessary

One of the best summer theatres in America is 5 miles away, The Weathervane. Santa's Village in Jefferson has entertained and wowed many generations and is a must visit for all ages! If you're an antique collector or dealer you'll enjoy the many wonderful 'unpicked' Antique stores and numerous estate auctions. In the autumn, the foliage around the lake and along the mountains is quite spectacular. Winter fun includes skiing at nearby Bretton Woods and Cannon Mountain, cross country skiing and snow shoeing on groomed trails, and ice fishing right outside the door!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: Our parents, Earl and Jane Boswell, bought the camp in the 1960's. They raised us (Bonnie, Michael, Connie, and Laurie) in neighboring Littleton, NH. We were blessed to spend summers at the lake, learning to swim, dive, and water ski, along with picking rocks out of the lake to create a great swimming area. As adults we now look back and realize how important family time at the lake was. We all currently live in NH and we have raised our own children who enjoy making memories by spending time at the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Bethlehem, NH, USA:
Our parents turned the property over to us four children in 2005. We all own homes of our own, though we all enjoy time at the lake whether it is a family cookout to celebrate a special occasion or a quick dip in the lake after a long day at work. There is nothing quite as relaxing as watching the sunset while enjoying a glass of wine on the dock. The peacefulness is unmatched.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Forest Lake is close to town (Whitefield and Littleton) for all daily conveniences, yet far enough away to experience the peace and solitude of life on a lake. The sound of loons or morning doves may wake you, but automobile traffic never will.
