About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 Bathrooms --- Sleeps 8, swimming, boating, fishing.

This lovely year-round chalet is situated in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. It is perched only 20 ft. from private waterfront on crystal clear Rust Pond. Rust Pond is a quiet 210-acre pristine lake in South Wolfeboro, 'The Oldest Summer Resort in America.' From the master bedroom balcony, you can see the morning sunrise, watch fish swim, or simply take in the serenity. Walking out on to the dock with your coffee, you may decide to slip in for a early morning dip, being the first to quietly pierce the clam water. Breakfast on the deck is a must. In the late summer you will smile at the mist rising above the surface, offering the warmth of the lake to the crisp morning air.

Rust Pond is noted for great bass fishing. From the Chalet, a short walk along the Middleton Road and up Alpine Meadows will reward you with the most amazing view of Mount Major and Lake Winnipesaukee. The chalet is 3 miles from the center of Wolfeboro and Lake Winnipesaukee. There is a great walking path along the old railroad starting at the Wolfeboro depot and proceeding along Crystal Lake and Lake Wentworth. There are abundant restaurants, grocery, and specialty shops. Our family loves the ice cream, crepes, shoe store, jewelry, the local library, and a hidden gem, the Wright Museum. Lake Winnipesaukee Golf Club is near the Kingswood Regional High School toward the center of Wolfeboro. The Mt. Washington Cruise Ship offers sightseeing trips of Winnipesaukee from the Wolfeboro docks several days a week. Castle in the Clouds is another great take for the view, lunch or horse back riding.

There are 3 golf courses within 10 miles: Enjoy New England at it's best. The Kancamagus Highway and the White Mountains are only an hour's drive north. Mount Major in Alton offers a great day hike for families with the reward of stunning views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Presidential Range. Story Land is an hour north if the kids aren't exhausted by swimming and playing outside all day. The the Conway outlets are an hour away if school or holiday shopping is on your agenda. Antique and yard sale expeditions are always an option if you want a change from your beautiful lake surroundings. This is a fabulous spot for the fall burst of colors and a fresh crispness to the air. Come see why our family has been enjoying Rust Pond for 4 generations

Best Place in Wolfeboro!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Staying at this "chalet" and it was the best!! We stayed on Lake Winni in the past, and it was very noisy. This house is located on Rust Pond which is about 2 miles from Lake Winni and Wolfeboro town, and it was the quietest, most tranquil place you will ever go!! The loons at night made it extra special. The fishing was incredible. Smallies, Largemouth Bass, Pikes, etc. were abundant!! Catfish at night seemed to come outta nowhere!! Swimming was incredible also!! The house itself has everything you need. The owners were super super nice and accommodating. Please don't pass this one up!! Much better than staying on the big lake.

Nice lakefront chalet with remodeled kitchen, bathroom, and living room

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Beautiful lake with limited public acesss. Chalet has a nice deck, barbecue grill, and lake view. We’ve been coming here ten years straight and our hosts are welcoming and wonderful people. Elaine, who manages the rental, kindly shipped a backpack to me mistakenly left behind by my son. Highly recommend!

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

My two friends and I were looking for a quiet retreat and this is the place! The house had plenty of room and was comfortable and perfectly located on a lovely lake (Rusty Pond) with beautiful views. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and we felt right at home. The house was well equipped with all of our kitchen needs (we like to cook!) and other amenities. We totally enjoyed our relaxing time reading by the lake, swimming in the clear water just outside our door, and taking the kayak out. But we also took time to sightsee in the area, pick apples, take a lake cruise (on the larger Lake Winni which was closeby) and shop in the friendly nearby town which was minutes away. Something for everyone! Thank you for a much needed vacation and I hope to return soon!
