About owner/property manager

I purchased this house while I was living abroad in the UK. I'm from New England originally and I wanted my 2 sons to spend their summers here with their cousins. My sister found the house, called me from the gas station on Route 103 and I purchased it -sight unseen. It was once a girls' camp in the 1930's-the historic artifacts and photos really resonated with me and I moved here in 2002 to raise my sons. We bought the adjoining property which was once the dining hall, and I renovated and re-built it using a similar footprint and style. I have lived in this area for nearly 20 years and love the peaceful lake, the quiet, and the sound of the loons calling to each other.

owner/property manager purchased this lodge in 1996

Why owner/property manager chose New Hampshire

It was(is) my dream property-skiing at Mt. Sunapee in the winter and swimming and enjoying the beach all summer!

Week stay with 9/10 year old girls

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this wonderful NH Lake house. The house was the right combination of rustic and modern. The two better bedrooms are upstairs and the one bath is down but it wasn't really an issue even for my 75 year old mother who came up for the night. The lake is the perfect size, big enough for space and privacy but not crowed with boats there were more people on the lake with paddles than with motors and it was super quiet at night other than the loons. The house is up on a hill with a bit of a walk down to the lake but it worked well and was never an issue the owner was generous and helpful. She recommended a place to rent some extra paddle boards in town that were delivered and an extra treat (they got lots of use). We had one overcast day and she also recommended the Montshire Museum in Hanover which ended up being a great way to spend an afternoon. We were very happy with the vacation and may well go back. We especially like the distance from Boston (less than 2 hours) which made having people come up to visit easy as well as a short drive each way for us.

Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a family gathering at the lake. Beautiful log cabin with a whole lot of character and history to boot. Swim Dock and plenty of Kayak's and fishing equipment for all. The opportunity to try windsurfing was a bonus! Cooking big family meals was easy with the 6 burner stove and built in griddle that allowed pancakes for 10 all at one time in addition to a table that seated us all! The separate bunk area was great for kids (In our case teens) and gave them their own space to spread out. Comfortable beds and linens in the bedrooms and loft and a screened in porch for early morning tea. It is a little walk down to the private beach and boat house, which is also a very cool spot for teenagers and young adults at night, but the beautiful view and relaxing private waterfront location is worth the walk for sure. We had a wonderful time and definitely hope to return.

Glad we chose this lakehouse.

  • 5 of 5

Communication was great with the owner. If you're the type of person that likes to stay busy, there were 3 kayaks, a canoe, a windsurfing set-up, a small sailboat, fishing poles, a piano, plenty of board games and other activities too. If you just like to relax, the house is large and cozy. The furniture is comfortable. Down by the water, there was a picnic table, charcoal grill, hammock, and an assortment of chairs. There is a small cabin by the water with two Futons, a small fridge, and plenty of supplies for water fun. We had a lot of guests come and go, but usually had about 7 adults and 5 kids on the property, although two of the adults slept on the Futon down by the lake. The house never felt crowded. The walk down to the lake is more than you might expect, uphill on the way back and lighted if you stay up to watch the sunset and cook Smores over the fire. If you have someone in your group with mobility issues, getting them to and from the lake will be a chore. You won't get a signal if your cell is AT&T, but Verizon seemed to work fine. There is also wifi in the main house. The lake is not too large nor too busy. Great for kids and teens to explore without having to worry about them too much. The water was a good temp for swimming in mid to late July.
