About the property

Sleeps 14 and 3 baths - great fire pit

Welcome to our "tree house". This property is literally tucked away in the trees but is less than a mile to a private beach, bath house, docks and swim up rafts! It is the perfect place to kick back after a day on the water 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, HUGE deck and a Tiki-inspired finished bar basement for the night owls in the crowd.

The kitchen 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 Elacoya 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 your swim suits for the next great day on lake Winnie. 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 finished basement with washer, dryer, countertop, sink and walkout door to the firepit area.

Our home sits on a PRIVATE wooded lot -- 2 minutes to the private beach, 10 minutes to hiking, 3 golf courses (all within 5-25 minutes) and a pretty lakeside drive to downtown Laconia, Weirs beach etc. The beach even has racks for storing kayaks and canoes - for use by our renters!

Completely renovated in 2015. 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!

Bed 1 -- double bed

Bed 2 -- queen and full

Bed 3 -- bunks (two twins)

Bed 4 -- bunks (twin over full)

Bed 5 -- bunks (twin over full)

We purchased this home in 2014. We have truly renovated 75% of it. 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.

Why KELLY chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

See for yourself! Its wide open and has lots of bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

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!

We really enjoyed our stay! Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house sleeps 14 easily with room for more if needed. The living space is open and all 14 people are able to gather comfortably. We enjoyed having 3 floors to be able to spread out when needed. We found the home inviting and a great place to spend our weekend!

Nice home, great location!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at this home! There are a lot of great things about this rental. The owner is friendly and accommodating. The house is very conveniently located and has plenty of room for a large group. The fire pit outside was a lovely bonus - wonderful for a chilly fall night.

We did have a couple thoughts for how this rental could be improved, however. Renters should note that no bedding is included in the rental fee. The linen fee covers sheets, but not blankets, pillows or towels. It was a bit inconvenient to have to bring our own bedding. Renters should also note that the fridge in the basement kitchenette is full of the owner's food, so it is not available for renter use. We were hoping to use that fridge for extra things for our large group, so we were a little surprised that it was full.

Despite these two points, we did have a very nice stay and we would consider renting his house again. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. All future guests should know that we recently improved our linen service to now include sheets, comforters, pillows and bath towels for all 9 beds. Towels for 14. Also, yes we have an alternate fridge in the basement. While it does have owner food in it, we are happy to accommodate your items we just ask that you do not consume our items. This information is included in the rental narrative. Thank you for providing this thorough review. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests experience. -Kelly

Weekend of Snowboarding Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Came up this past weekend with a group of friends for a little weekend get away . We had about 13 people with us and there was more then enough room for everyone to sleep. One of the best parts about this property was how the kitchen opens up into the living room so no one is ever excluded from the group fun while cooking or cleaning. Also the owners weren't kidding about gunstock being about 5 mins away by car which made an easy trip home after a night of snowboarding. But overall the best part about this property are the owners themselves 1st night we arrived around 830 at night and the owners made sure the lights and heat were on as we arrived and any questions we had were answered within minutes as well. Overall would recommend this property to anyone!

Pros: Large spacious house, plenty of bathrooms, clean, privacy, and amazing owners!

Con: During the winter if it snows would recommend having a car with all wheel drive.
