About the property

Cottage Rental: Alton Bay, NH Lake Winnipesaukee

Name: Waterfront Cottage with Dock

Description: Affordable opportunity to be on the big lake. Located across from and on Alton Bay, this property is just down the street from Sandy Point (Lobster / Seafood) Restaurant. The primary attraction is the 60+ feet of deck across the waterfront, plus a 24' dock with walk in steps to make swimming easy. The cottage itself is located across the street, and has views of the bay, including watching the Mount Washington come and go. The cottage includes a ¾ bath, washer / dryer, 2+ bedrooms that allow us to stay up at the lake frequently with 7 of us (3 children). One bedroom has a queen size bed, the second is the kids room with a triple bunk system, and the third has a twin bed with a trundle style one below if allowing for two people in the room. . . This property also includes significant parking via a private driveway, and parking on the road is also allowed.

Why this property: Private Waterfront w Dock, Location, Range of activities, Affordable prices

If you enjoy the lake, this is a terrific location. It is a real pleasure to sit out on the dock with refreshments, watching the boats coming and going or the leaves turning. Take a swim if the season is right, or take a kayak / canoe / paddleboard ride around the bay (about 4.5 miles long!). If you have a jet ski, or small boat, use this as your launching point to explore all of the adventures that the lake can bring. Wolfesboro is 20-30 minutes by boat, with beautiful swimming spots on the way. Once in Wolfesboro, enjoy ice cream, lunch, dinner or the shops. Many other locations are available by boat, including Weirs beach, Meredith Bay and more. . . If you are looking to drive, you can reach Weirs Beach or Wolfesboro in about 20-25 minutes. If you want to take a walk, Alton Bay has several small restaurants, a country store, and two small beaches. If you enjoy hiking, you can explore a local park, as well as several true mountain hikes with a hike to the top of mount major providing a couple hours of hiking round trip for a spectacular view of the lake and Alton Bay. Other hikes are close by to those interested.
