Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in New Durham - Clearwater Cottage

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Lakefront Home

Come spend the lazy days of summer lounging lakeside at our vacation home on beautiful Merrymeeting lake! Our house has three bedrooms, a one-car garage, and parking for two cars. One bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has a double bed, and the kid's bunkroom has five bunk beds for the little ones. Merrymeeting lake is a wonderful lake with crystal clear water and plenty of opportunities for boating and fishing. It is considered one of the cleanest lakes in NH. It is located within 15 minutes of shopping and great restaurants in Wolfeboro, 10 minutes from Lake Winnepesaukee, and 10 minutes from grocery stores. Enjoy cocktails on the screened-in porch, fish for bass, pull your boat up to the dock, or just kick back on the lawn and soak up the afternoon sun. Relaxation is the name of the game here.

About Dan and Nicole Hinchey

Hello! Our names are Dan and Nicole Hinchey. We are the owners of Clearwater Cottage. We named it such because the lake water here is crystal clear and visitors will feel the peace and serenity of it when they visit.

We live in a city during the rest of the year and wanted a quiet place we could take our three children for the summer. Nicole grew up in New Durham so it was fun for her to get back to her roots. We have really enjoyed our first three summers here and we hope you do too.

Dan and Nicole Hinchey purchased this cottage in 2012

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time during our stay! The weather was perfect and it was so peaceful We had beautiful sunrises everyday and the loons loved hanging out in our cove. The beach area is perfect for children to play and swim. For the adults, our most favorite part was having coffee on the screened in porch. It was just absolutely wonderful! We are looking forward to booking again next year!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family gathering! We enjoyed paddling across the lake in the canoe, and our kids loved paddling around the cove in the kayak.

Relaxation at the lake

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is adorable and the perfect place to get away with the family and relax. It is well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The lake is just steps away from front door and we were able to dock the jet ski and kayaks onsite. The lake water was crystal clear. Nicole was very responsive and answered any questions immediately. I would definitely go back!

Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Nicole for a wonderful vacation week at your cottage on Merrymeeting Lake. Your cottage was a perfect fit for our extended family! The grandchildren enjoyed the water right outside the quaint, grassy yard. Fishing off the dock was a big hit when our grandson caught a fish!!! We made use of the canoe and kyak and enjoyed the beautiful, calm and quiet lake. The cottage was plenty big enough for everyone to sleep comfortably. We highly recommend your cottage to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing family vacation on one of the most beautiful lakes we've ever seen!!!
