Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: As a U.S. Foreign Service family often working overseas, we love to return to the lake in New Hampshire as often as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Stoddard, NH, USA:
After renting summer homes in southern New Hampshire for years, we finaly bought our own and turned it into the place we would want to rent. We hope you'll find living on the lake as relaxing as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The 180 degree view of hills and trees across the lake from our front deck and nearly all the rooms makes doing a lot, or nothing, equally worthwhile.
