About the property

Sleeps 14 and 3 baths - awesome fire pit!

Welcome to our "tree house". This property is literally tucked away in the trees but is only ONE MILE to the Gunstock entrance. We are also less than a mile to our association beach, bath house, day dock and swim up raft! Our home is 1 mile to the Ellacoya State Park Beach and close to several marinas where boat, PWC, and SUP rentals are available. It is the perfect place to kick back after a day on the mountains, lake or hike. The chalet is a spacious, comfortable oasis with exposed beams. You will love it!

Our 5 bedroom chalet offers sleeping for 14 guests in beds, not pull-out couches! Open concept family room and eat in kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, screen porch, large deck and a Tiki-inspired finished basement for the night owls in the crowd.

The chalet has all you need for hosting large groups - gas grill, dishwasher, crock pot, griddle, casserole dishes. Or wander less than a mile down the street to the Ellacoya Tavern for a hearty meal and let them worry about the dishes! This property offers the best of both worlds!

The kids are sure to love the bunk bed options, the tire swing and exploring our wooded yard! The on-site washer/dryer allows you to re-wash and dry your ski gear or swim suits for the next great day on Gunstock Mountain or Lake Winni. Enjoy a nightcap or s'mores under the bright stars while gathered around the outdoor fire pit!


Large flatscreen in the living room and a 50" plasma in the basement Tiki Bar (both with DISH TV).

Wait there's more?! In addition to a bed for everyone, the house includes a Tiki Lounge inspired finished basement pub table, bar, washer, dryer, countertop, sink and walkout door to the firepit area.

Our home sits on a PRIVATE wooded lot -- 2 minutes to the association beach, 10 minutes to hiking (Mt. Major, Lockes Hill and more), several golf courses and a pretty lakeside drive to downtown Laconia, Weirs beach etc. Our beach even has space for storing your kayaks and canoes.

Extensive renovations include: hardwood flooring throughout 1st floor, granite countertops, THREE completely new tiled bathrooms (including 2 tubs), brand new carpets upstairs and fresh paint throughout!

We purchased this home in 2015. We have renovated the vast majority of the interior and exterior spaces. It is a great space for our family as it allows us to host lots of friends and family. It is close to the private beach and 3 minutes to Gunstock.

Perfect home with excellent communication

  • 5 of 5

We had our large family of 8 adults and 4 children over Christmas and had such a great time. The house had plenty of space for kids to play and for each family to have their own space. The backyard was great for some snowy exploring and sledding, and it was warm and cozy inside. Kelly was quick to respond to my many questions leading up to our stay, and was very friendly and even offered help in getting us there despite a pretty intense winter storm! Would definitely stay here again!

Winter fun

  • 5 of 5

We spent a whole February vacation week here with our friends and had a lot of fun in this cozy chalet. This place is nicely decorated and a common area is spacious for hanging out. Location is priceless! Very close to the Ski Resort and also to the lake in the summer. So many things you can do here!

Kelly, the owner, was very nice and accommodating and easy to talk to. Communication with her was always prompt and professional.

The yard is not very big for kids to run around but this chalet is surrounded by beautiful woods and a fireplace was a very pleasant addition.

Overall, we liked this place a lot and would come here again!

Thank you Kelly for making our stay enjoyable!

Excellent location with tons of space

  • 5 of 5

Kelly's home was even better than I had imagined from the Homeaway page. There was tons of space for my guests and all of our ski gear and was located in a very great location. Tons to find around the area even in the middle of winter. I would recommend this home to anyone without a doubt! Kelly was also very easy to communicate with and the instructions for the home were very self-explanatory. Excellent home!
