This 'Cozy Cottage' is ideal for a family vacation. Two private bedrooms, one with full bed and windows that look over beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee, the other bedroom is equipped with a triple bunk and trundle. Living room has two sets of sliders that lead to two of the decks surrounding the cottage. Perfect views of The Lake and Mt. Major, as well as a spectacular sunset every evening. Southwestern exposure insures that you will have the sun on your dock until it sets. The dock is 8' wide x 30' feet long.
There are also two additional docks at waters edge ideal for lounging, eating or just enjoying the view.
The water is crystal clear, the fishing is great! Perfect for summer, fall, winter and spring; every season has it's own unique qualities and you can enjoy them all, from the Foliage in the Fall, skiing (only 10 minutes away) at Gunstock mountain, or ice fishing and ski-mobiling on The Lake right outside your door in the Winter, not to mention boating, water skiing, tubing, swimming etc. in the Summer!
Beautiful views! Quiet spot on the Lake. Free public boat ramp down the street for launching and lots of restaurants, etc. close by. Large awning over the porch for rainy days, too. Accommodations were comfortable and the docks are in a great sunny location. Highly recommend~
This was our first homeaway.com rental, and it was flawless. Debbie and Mike were honest, well-organized and described the property perfectly. The cottage is older, but very clean and maintained. Parking a bit tight if you have large vehicles, and there are 3 flights of stairs down to the lake since the cottage sits on hillside -- so maybe not the best if you have elderly folks vacationing with you. But the view of Alton Bay is picture perfect -- and the cottage is just 25 mins from both Wolfeboro and Weirs Beach. There's also ample docking room if you bring your own boat; we waterskiied just off the dock. Lake Winni is crystal clear, too! Great restaurants nearby - Johnson's in New Durham, Shibley's for ice cream in the Bay, and lots more. Plus Funspot in Weirs Beach is great for the kids on a rainy day...a huge arcade. You can also boat to the sandbar in West Alton, then anchor and swim ... or take a day-long cruise on the Mount Washington if you don't bring your own boat. Another great thing about the cottage is that it gets southwest exposure - watch the sunrise from across the lake and see it set off the dock. Beautiful. We would definitely rent again. Thanks!
