About Jodi Freeman

The property at 150 Oakwood Road was one of the very first purchased pieces of property in the area. My mom was born in 1942 and grew up enjoying Lake Winnipesaukee her entire life. Her father and his father-in-law built the original "camp" back in the mid to late 30's. When school was out for the summer, my mom and my Grandparents would pack up and leave Boston to head to Wolfeboro. When I was born, we traveled from Ohio to NH every summer to visit. The beauty and peacefulness brought me to NH for college where I spent my summers at "the camp" working as a lifeguard at Brewster Beach. My siblings love the area as much as I do and actually, my brother got married on the property back in 2009 (my family in the photo).

The local people are welcoming and exude an extreme love for home and all of the secrets the area holds. My grandfather always called it "God's Country" and we are truly blessed to be able to enjoy a piece of it every time we visit!

Why Jodi Freeman chose Wolfeboro

My great-grandparents found this piece of property back in the early 1900's. When my grandmother and grandfather were married, they took over the property and built a gorgeous little cottage which later became known as "the camp" to my mom and all of the grandchildren. I have been in love with this location my entire life. To this day, our first visit to town includes a trip to the Yum Yum Shop for homemade goodies and a delicious ice cream at Bailey's Bubble.

When my grandfather passed away, my mom moved up to "the camp" from Ohio. She decided to do an overhaul and tore the old house down and replaced it with the beautiful white and blue A-frame cottage it is today. My mom had always planned to move in to the house once she reached retirement age but, unfortunately, her time was cut very short when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease shortly after she arrived. She is now in our care in Georgia.

While we still visit the house quite frequently, we have all decided that my mom would want as many people to share in the love of this property just as she did. We hope others can enjoy the peaceful, breathtaking views and experience all that the home and The Oldest Summer Resort in America have to offer. Memories that will last a lifetime!

What makes this cottage unique

From the smell of fresh pine trees and clean air, to the crystal clear waters that you can many times spot a small mouth bass swimming below, there really is nothing like it. Fill your days with water activities and nature hikes or just sit back, relax, and catch up on a good book while sitting on the dock, soaking up some sun.

We truly hope those who are able to appreciate the beauty and tranquility of the home will enjoy it as much as we do.

Delightful vacation home for our family

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening up your lovely lakeside home to us! We found it to be warm, spacious, and comfy for the six of us. We enjoyed the abundant natural light as well as the slide off the dock into the water. I think our one regret was that we only stayed for two days.

Thank you, Jodi, for sharing your home! Although the weather wasn't totally cooperative, we enjoyed the beautiful view and a comfortable weekend on the lake! The house is well maintained on a beautiful and quiet part of the lake and has absolutely everything you need (including an adorable welcome basket and gifts!). We hope to be able to come back again soon!
