About the Property
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 9)
The cottage rents Sat to Sat. Price: $2500/week shoulder season
At 2-3/4 acres, the property is about half-again larger than the average lakefront property on Lake Winnipesaukee. The sloping property is still in its original wooded state with large pines throughout, although some trees have been thinned in front of the cottage to aid the view. The property is on a private road, with a long winding driveway down to the house, so there is no road noise whatsoever. The parking area is part-way down the hill, away from the house.
The houses on Chestnut Cove are well-spaced, so there is relatively little boat traffic. The large dock area has with shade pergola, for ample seating, and can accommodate a 22’ boat. Included are open kayaks and a canoe, with paddles and some lifejackets. Both Parker and Gillan Marine in nearby Alton Bay have power boats for rent.
We’re located about 8 miles (15 min) from downtown Wolfeboro with its many fine restaurants and shops. Travel about 6 miles (12 minutes) the other direction and you’re in Alton Bay.
The property looks out across the large open expanse on the lake called 'The Broads' between the southern end of the lake and Rattlesnake Island, so the views and sunsets are gorgeous. Cooling breezes normally flow down the lake and right up our property.
While the size of the cottage is modest, the layout with bedrooms on either end of the house provides a fair amount of sleeping capacity. There are 5 bedrooms, 3 with double or queen beds, one with two twins, and a small room with one twin bed. The main house (with master bedroom and room with twin beds) is separated from the other bedrooms by a screened in porch, so two families could share with privacy. Three bedrooms face the lake. All the bedrooms are compact, as it’s assumed vacationers will spend their time in the living room/porch areas or down by the waterfront.
The kitchen is in a small alcove but does have a compact island facing the living room with high-stool seating for 4. This is an all-original period cottage with rustic pine cabinets: no granite countertops, no dishwasher. Just off the kitchen is a large screened porch area with rustic dining table that seats about 10, so it’s not a long walk to serve meals. There's a bathroom on either end of the house, one with a new shower, the other with only a toilet and sink.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
