Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4, kitchen, bathroom, living room, two screened porches

Classic New Hampshire cottage, neatly kept, simple, no-frills yet possessing an old-fashioned charm that many refer to as 'spirit-renewing'. Colonial Pines sits on the edge of picturesque Center Harbor Bay.

THE SPACE:

Simple lakeside charm. Cottage #4 has one bedroom with a queen size bed and a trundle bed in the living room that can be set up as two twin beds or attached to make a kind size bed. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, and a drip coffee maker. All dishes, silverware and pots and pans are provided.

Food or meals are not provided. Local supermarket is less than a mile away.

The cottage has two large screened in porches with table and chairs for dining and relaxing.

Our location is in a quiet non-commercialized area, assuring our guests of privacy.

Cottage #4 has a view of the woods and a limited view of the lake.

Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming. There are few locations on the 'big lake' that offer so much privacy without a long drive to the store and services. Restaurants and groceries are only 2 minutes by car or boat. Restaurants ranging from family fast food to gourmet meals are within a couple of miles.

GUEST ACCESS:

One hundred fifty feet of sandy bathing with gradual slope, two wharves, one with diving board; swim raft, stone fireplace by lake for cook-outs, outdoor shuffle-board court, badminton court, and table tennis.

Complimentary use of canoes. Kayak rentals available.

There are many islands to explore by water. The harbor is protected on three sides which makes it ideal for canoeing and kayaking.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:

We live on the property and assist our guests with check-in, boat rentals, finding local attractions, and any other way we can. One of our reviewers says it best: 'Cindy and Gary are experienced hosts who know how to welcome guests and offer assistance, but also leave space for privacy. They are genuinely nice people, and we felt completely comfortable with them'. We have new guests and guests that have been coming for over 40 years.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

We are within walking distance to the quaint town of Center Harbor. There are wonderful little shops in town including Keepsake Quilting, a bookstore, a grocery store, ice cream stands, restaurants and even a gazebo for band concerts on Friday evenings.

Hiking, antiquing, golfing, outlet shopping are just a few of the many activities close by.

Close to the White Mountains and Gunstock Ski area where you can enjoy many outdoor activities. There are lots of hiking trails for all abilities within a short drive.

GETTING AROUND:

Some guests bring bicycles.

A great family tradition is walking to town for ice cream on a hot summer night.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

Weekly rentals Friday to Friday during July & August. We prefer to rent a minimum of three nights other times of the year because of the cleaning involved with a cottage, but a 2 night minimum will be considered. Events and holiday weekends may require a longer minimum stay. If you're looking to stay for a night or two please consider our Lodge Suite. We do not provide sheets and towels. If it's not possible for you to bring your own please let us know. A fee will apply. A deep well on the property assures great drinking water. Boat slips available if you bring your own boat. Additional cost for boat slips. Please inquire. Plenty of parking for trailers. Close to all area attractions. Cruise Lake Winni on the MS Mount Washington (it departs from Center Harbor on Monday's), hike in the White Mountains, tour Castle in the Clouds, attend a concert at Meadowbrook, shop at the Outlet stores in North Conway, go zip lining in Lincoln, ride the Cog Railroad up Mount Washington. Just to name a few of the many things to see and do in our beautiful area!

Wonderful property on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a charming cabin with 2 screened in porches. It was clean, quiet, and in a very nice setting. My grandson enjoyed fishing from the dock, using the canoe, playing table tennis, etc. We would love to go back.

Clean small cottage

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in early evening for a few days. Property is older but kept well by owners. Cindy and Gary could not have been any nicer. They were very accommodating to us and made every effort to make are stay perfect. Can see lake from cottage through the trees. Lake is great and dock had plenty of room for the boat we brought with us.

The perfect getaway on Lake Winnipesaukee

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage as a place to spend 3 nights while having a reunion with friends. It was perfect! Cindy& Gary are extremely friendly & accommodating & the cottage was clean and very comfortable! We didn't get to spend a lot of time there during the day but if we had the water was pristine for swimming & there were canoes & kayaks available for our use. We will definitely come back! It is a lovely area to spend your vacation! Plus we are Nascar fans so this is a great place to stay if you plan on going to a race. We also enjoyed the local restaurants in the area.
