About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, 10 Sleeps

This stunning lakefront home is located within a private association in beautiful Washington, NH. Our home was constructed with locally sourced wood timbers and beams, giving it a warm, farmhouse type feel. Guests can relax and enjoy westerly waterfront views while sitting on the deck or at our private beach. For the more adventurous types, enjoy kayaking, fishing, skiing, boating, water sports, hiking, cross country skiing and site seeing. Guests will have access to the association’s shared tennis and basketball courts during summer months. Winter sports enthusiast can ski/ride at Pat’s Peak Ski Mountain (~20 minutes to the south) and Mount Sunapee (~28 minutes to the north).


A well-appointed kitchen with granite counter tops, KitchenAid Professional Series stainless steel appliances, and large farmhouse sink is perfect for preparing all of your gourmet meals. Pots, pans, and typical the kitchen "tools" and appliances (toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker, electric griddle, etc) are also provided.


The kitchen overlooks the living room complete with a wood-burning fireplace, large comfy couches and chairs, and a wall of windows that bring the outside in. The home is complete with wireless internet, HD flat-screen TV, and a Blu-ray DVD player. Unfortunately, we do not have cable, but our home is equipped with a Sonos audio system.


The over-sized master bedroom features a queen bed, a private bathroom with granite counter tops and a custom built stone shower. The second bedroom is located upstairs, down the hall from the master bedroom, and has 2 sets of bunk beds that will comfortably sleep four adults and a queen bed that will sleep two. The guest bathroom is located immediately to the right of the second bedroom and appointed in the same fashion as the master bedroom bath. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and will sleep two adults. A rustic cabin themed bathroom is located just across the hall on the first floor.


Continuing with the rustic theme of our home, this area is complete with pine bead board wainscoting and natural slate flooring..


Guest can make use of the linens and towels.


We are dog owners, so pets are welcome at an added rental fee + increased security deposit. A separate pet disclosure form will be included as part of the rental agreement. Absolutely no pit bulls (purebred or mixed), Rottweilers, Dobermans, German Shepards, and any dog(s) with aggressive demeanor are allowed on our property – insurance dictates this, not us. Pets are to be kept on a leash at all times & guests will be responsible for cleaning up after their pets.


Our desire is to create a home away from home with everything you would need for an extended business trip or a holiday with the kids. You will find all kinds of resources and guidebooks to the Lake Sunapee Region and the surrounding areas.

Fantastic winter getaway destination!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a winter week at this property and had a wonderful time. Views of the frozen lake are absolutely stunning. The house is well-equipped, nicely laid out for groups and offers a good mix of private and community space. We are foodies and spent a good deal of time cooking and hanging out, and the open kitchen/living area were perfect for this. Joe was accessible for all our questions and needs and extremely gracious throughout our stay. Great location, outstanding host- we will be back!

Great lakeside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful lakeside house. The house is wonderfully decorated and has all the amenities. We went in the fall so we couldn't enjoy the lake, but the views were still spectacular.

We loved the quiet of this secluded house, but it is a trip to go pretty much anywhere so it is something to keep in mind. That being said we can't wait to go back in the summer and get the most out of the lake.

Very comfortable and well maintained house with a great yard, beach, and access to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at the lake house. The house was perfect for our two families. In warm weather, the yard, beach, and lake are great fun - be sure to bring whatever water equipment you need. Also, there are not a lot of food options nearby, so best to load up before you arrive. If you're looking for a quiet time on a beautiful lake, this is a great spot!

quiet and relaxing weekend with my adult children

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to visit with two or my children and their spouses. So good to get away. Loved the view of the lake with the fall foliage. The house was charming and clean, with room enough for us to spread out and relax, talk and play a few games and eat together on the large kitchen table. Owner returned emails promptly. Would stay again and would definitely recommend if you are looking for peace and quiet.

Cozy, beautifully kept lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples and 4 children aged 4-7) really enjoyed our stay here. This was an ideal choice for a quiet family vacation with young kids: the house is right on the water, has an ample flat, grassy lawn, a private beach with sandy area extending well into a warm, shallow lake perfect for young swimmers, and a cozy kids' bedroom with night lights, 4 bunks and a double bed. Minor quibble - the upper bunks have no railings, so if your kids are young and/or squirmy in their sleep, bring some sort of railings (I improvised one on the spot using PVC pipes and kayak tie-downs), or an inflatable bed rail (like Shrunks brand). The master bedroom was spacious and comfortable, and the large windows were great. We fell asleep to the Perseid meteors streaking over the lake. Bathrooms were all clean, well-stocked, and felt like-new. The large walk-in shower in the master bath was beautifully done, and at 6'4" I didn't have to stoop my head down to wash my hair as I often must in showers. The kitchen has a really excellent gas stove and a decent amount of counter space, and is fairly well stocked, although I could have used a few more kitchen implements, for example basic kitchen tongs, and there were plenty of mugs, tumblers, and stemware but no juice glasses. Again, it's a minor quibble.

The neighborhood (at least during our stay in early August 2016) was very quiet. It's in a private development with unpaved roads, so there is no fast traffic zooming around, and the scene at the lake seemed fairly mellow, with only a handful of jetskis and motorboats. You will have to bring or rent your own paddlecraft (we rented kayaks from a place in New London), but the lake is a pretty decent paddle, albeit a bit breezy, and there are a few interesting little coves to explore. It's fairly shallow, warm, and very weedy, but I managed to find a few rocky areas just north of the house that yielded a few bass and a bunch of yellow perch.

The owner, Joe, was very friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in sharing the place with us. When I texted him with questions during our stay, he responded very promptly, and when I informed him that the garbage bin out back was full upon our arrival, he had it taken care of within a few hours. I would definitely consider returning to this property, and I would recommend this place for a comfortable, quiet, outdoors-oriented vacation with family and/or close friends.
