Affectionately known as Turtle Lodge, this recently renovated lakeside home accommodates 7-8 guests and offers direct access to Squam Lake with a spacious dock for 2 boats directly off the yard. Turtle Lodge is located in Grapevine Cove, a calm cove looking out to Squam and toward Red Hill and the Sandwich Mountain Range.
Turtle Lodge has 100 feet of private lakefront for swimming and other water activities. Bring your boat, paddleboard, kayak or canoe!! Also, kayak, paddleboard, sailboat and canoe rentals are available at the nearby Squam Lakes Association and several marinas on Squam also rent boats.
Turtle Lodge has three bedrooms and a sleeping loft, two bathrooms, an outdoor grill, AC, a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The house has internet, cable tv, a wood burning fireplace, an outdoor deck and a 3-season room with views of the cove and out to the lake. The Turtle Lodge lawn is perfect for lounging, grilling out on the gas grill or challenge your friends to a game of cornhole (cornhole game provided!).
This lakefront home is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping and local attractions. Visit the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center which is only a 5 minute drive! Meredith, Centre Harbor and Plymouth are all charming areas within a 15-20 minute drive and offer year round restaurant and shopping options.
Hiking abounds with nearby popular hikes including Rattlesnake, Cotton and Livermore Mountains. Skiing is nearby with Loon and Waterville within a 35-40 minute drive. The White Mountain National Forest lies within the White Mountains approximately 60-90 minutes from Turtle Lodge, crossed by the White Mountain Trail and Kancamagus scenic drives, plus part of the Appalachian Trail. Dating to the 1860s, the Mt. Washington Cog Railway climbs to the summit of Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the northeastern U.S. The area is also known for bright fall foliage and winter skiing.
