About Owner / Property Manager

We found the house while visiting our friends on the lake that have a house also. I was always an ocean person but I couldn't believe how clean the water is and how pretty the views are. It's really a very friendly community. The house is situated on an island with a small bridge to get to it. We fell in love with it and have done the house completely over. Its so beautiful with the views all year round.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Lakes Region

The views are amazing! It's located on Pine Island which you take a small bridge over. It has shallow water and gets deeper as you walk out. There are absolutely no weeds in the water with a 30 ft dock to dock your own boat up to or watch the boats going by, lay out on, and the fishing is fantastic on the lake.

The house is so cozy and everything is new. We have tried to think of something for every guest so everyone will enjoy it.

There are two outdoor sitting areas, one with a firepit and also an outdoor shower.

Honestly there's no reason to leave!

What makes this cabin unique

The waterfront is 175ft. To just wake up and see the loons is so fantastic. You just open the French doors on to the deck and you just look at the view and it's such a great start to your day! You can have your coffee right outside on either that deck or the waterfront patio that has a big beautiful outdoor sectional. You can spend the whole day biking,hiking,swimming,floating in such a peaceful environment. Whenever someone visits they all say the same thing : " I never want to leave here"

Hidden Gem! Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express enough what a wonderful stay/holiday weekend we had away at this beautiful cottage! My husband & I stayed here with 1 other couple. Perfect NYE spot! Kim, our host for the weekend did nothing but make our trip that much better! She has excellent response time, clear/concise communication & to boot, she had champagne chilling in the fridge!!! The space was perfect for being holed up in the winter-time. Easy access to the Lake (clearly your view is spectacular, you're literally water-front)! Easy jaunt into town--10 minute leisurely drive down the road. Everyone is very friendly! The cottage is up-to-date, SO well decorated & just darling. Can't say enough nice things! Can't wait to book something there again soon (summer repeat is calling our names) :) Thanks again, Kim!

Fall get away.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying three nights at the cottage on Balch Lake. The house is situated right on the lake and is very quiet. The kitchen was well stocked. The foliage was stunning and the view out onto the lake was lovely. We hiked Mount Major and spent a day in North Conroy. I highly recommend this home for a quiet and peaceful getaway.

Absolutely stunning lakehouse!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a relaxing weekend away with friends and this little slice of heaven was exactly what we needed. The house was immaculate, with all the touches that made us feel right at home. Waking up to the view of Balch lake was amazing. Our host Kim even left us a bottle of wine in the fridge as a welcome gift! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already decided to make it a yearly trip.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just beautiful. The views of the lake were spectacular! The rooms were comfortably decorated and well stocked with everything we needed. The property featured plenty of sunny and shady areas to accommodate all of our needs. We can't wait for next summer!

This rental is to die for!!!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING lake house!! I cannot rave about this house enough! The inside is absolutely stunning like something from a magazine. There is plenty of space and the bonus sun room off the living room has a gorgeous view of the lake - perfect spot to relax and watch the sunset! There is an awesome outdoor patio with a fire pit and the master has a private deck! The water is super clean and refreshing it was so much fun swimming and kayaking. Kim was great and made sure we had everything we needed! We spent a few days there for a girls’ weekend and it was very hard to leave! We can’t wait to go back this winter for some skiing there’s a mountain only 35 minutes away!! Highly recommend this rental!!!!

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. There is way more space than the pictures will lead you to believe .

The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful and made sure we were satisfied and happy The views are amazing , the sunset is gorgeous ( as well as the sun rise ) . We will absolutely be renting this place out again! Hopefully before the end of the year .Even with the landscape fully covered in snow , this place was absolutely stunning. HIGHLY recommended!!

Map

We are right on the water. It is extremely clean! There are 2 sandbars and islands to kayak, canoe, or boat over to.

We are surrounded by a lot of attractions and things to do. N.Conway, Wolfeboro, Ogunquit, and also Portsmouth are all close by for a day trip or take a nice drive for dinner.

We are on the lake and in the middle of a lot!
