This is our family cottage on the water's edge with private sandy beach on crystal clear Newfound Lake in Hebron NH, on the west shore so you can see the sunrise and the glow of sunset on the mountains across the lake.
This is a vintage cottage but it has everything for a great family vacation and like visiting "Grandma's Beach House". It is rustic and campy in a private setting with 100' of frontage on Newfound Lake. Private beach and sitting area with a deck and an excellent location for fishing, canoeing, kayaking. There are two quality sea kayaks, life jackets, paddles, a canoe, sand chairs, beach chaise lounges, inflatable tubes/toys and inflatable boat all available. The crystal clear water provides a excellent swimming with a waterfront deck that overlooks a private sandy beach and swim area. An excellent place for small children with a gradual slope on the beach and a much protected cove. There is large picnic table and gas grill overlooking deck and beach for outdoor dining. There is both a screened in porch as well as a lakeside deck that both offer great views of the lake while sipping your morning coffee or evening cocktail. There is wireless internet and cable TV. In the evening, light the tiki torches and sit deck side with cocktails, enjoy a bonfire lakeside, make smores and listen to the loons. The calling of the loons is a beautiful sound in the evenings. A private lakeside on Newfound Lake is a vintage vacation few get to experience. The Lake views, the mountain views, the private sandy beach, the evening campfires, moon beams across the lake and the ducks and loons swimming by, the outdoor living just does not get any better than this.
This is not a typical rental but a private owned vintage cottage that I grew up in and a very special lakeside experience with your own private beach, your own private waterfront deck, your own lakeside fire pit, your own lakeside picnic table and NO association or condo sharing and NO road between the cottage and the lake. Back in Time lodging with wireless technology: This is a vintage 'cottage' and certainly could use a lot work, but it has everything for a great family vacation. It is a rustic summer camp in a private setting with 100’ of frontage on Newfound Lake much the same as it was 65 years ago except for the technology. It is a beautiful place to be on a warm summer day but also a great getaway in the off season with very quiet kayak paddles and warm evening campfires by the lake. This is a seasonal cottage and there is no central heating but there is a small Vermont casting woodstove to warm up on fall and spring nights. You should come prepared with warm clothes any time of year but especially in the off season as the house is not heated.
