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 Wakefield

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!

Very happy with the property and being right on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

We loved being on the lake and able to swim first thing in the morning! My 5 year old loved it! Wish I read the description closer and brought sheets, pillow cases and towels but that was my fault. I like renting off season when the lake is quiet and not many people are around.

Beautiful cozy lake house, right at the water, we had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lake house for two nights. The house is beautiful and cozy, right at the water, with beautiful lake view from balcony and the living area. There is canoe and kayak also available at the house to use. It is also conveniently located close (3-4 min walk) to a small market and about 5 min drive to a larger market. There is a fire pit outside and a good AC and heating system inside. There were some cleaning issues in the beginning apparently due to some emergency situation for the cleaning company but after we communicated with the owner (Kim), she kindly apologized and quickly sent someone and took care of it. The owner is very responsive, polite, and friendly ( thank you Kim). We had a great time, and will plan to hopefully visit again, and definitely recommend the stay.

Perfect Lakefront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had an amazing time during our stay. The house was the perfect size for us and was clean and had everything we needed. The views were amazing both from inside and outside. We enjoyed fishing, jumping off the dock, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, s’mores around the fire pit and much more! We didn’t want to leave and we definitely hope to return!

Very nice place with perfect location on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great week here up on the lake. The spot has a perfect location on the water. This part of the lake is clean with no weeds, just jump right in off the dock and cool off. The rental includes a kayak and a canoe which we made use of. The house also has central AC which is pretty rare on little Balch Lake. The AC turned out to be a very welcome comfort on our very humid week. It has a nice grill and plenty of outdoor seating as well as little Tiki bar/nook. The marina is super easy canoeing or walking distance. It's very handy for prepared meals, as well as essential food items, paper goods, wine and beer. It's also handy to launch your boat or jetski right nearby if you have one. Very nice place, we hope to return. Can't wait to come back!!

Lakeside Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at this nicely appointed Balch Lake Bungalow. The convenient and beautiful lakeside location is ideal for a vacation getaway for a small family or couple. We literally walked out the door and down the stairs to the roomy dock and paddled, swam, fished and just lounged around watching boaters and loons pass by. The nearby marina was such a convenience for picking up necessary items, or to have a quick bite. The lake is pristine, with many loons, and lots of islands and coves to explore by kayak, canoe or paddleboard. There isn't a bad fishing spot on the lake! We highly recommend this home for your vacation!

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!
