About the property

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 with shower, 1 with tub)

Spacious 5 bedroom Victorian house with antique furnishings, expansive lot, and old-world charm. Enjoy a spectacular view of 6 mountains from the wrap-around stonewalled front porch and bedroom windows. All new kitchen, appliances, bathrooms, plumbing, electrical, and amenities. Short walk to the lake for canoeing and kayaking. (NO motorboats allowed on this private lake). Swim beach and hiking trails nearby. The house has three fireplaces on first floor.

This Victorian home is a modern treasure. Rebuilt in 2004 upon the footprint and in the 19th century style of the original home, this house has all the charm and warmth of the 1890 home that stood here for over 100 years. Yet it offers updated and modern conveniences to its residents. Located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, this vacationer's delight offers stunning views, outdoor adventures, and peaceful surroundings.

My whole family loved this property! Even my two year old son can't wait to go back. There was plenty of room for everyone to stay and relax, and big enough for everyone to come together and visit. The views were breathtaking. It was a spectacular place to watch the eclipse. We hope to visit again in the future!

This home was a perfect summer get away for our whole family. We loved the big, well-equipped, comfortable home along with all the extras that came with it: kayaks, canoe, fishing equipment, horseshoes, ping pong, board games (to name a few!). We loved hiking, swimming, biking, conversing on the porch, napping, and a night sky so clear that you could discover a new constellation. I would give this place an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up. The owners were so friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a great week!

Barnstormers Theatre Attendee

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends spent three days and two nights at the Mathews Chocura property. The house was even more spectacular than the pictures indicated. Everyone was extremely comfortable. We were in town to see my son perform in "The Full Monty" at the Barnstormers Theatre and had pre-show guests for dinner both nights, including two actors from the show. The property was easy to find and in close proximity to Tamworth. We will stay here again in the future.
