Why settle for lakefront when you can stay on a private island? On Middle Island, crystal clear Lovell Lake is more than just a view shared by neighbors and passerby. Enjoy cool lake breezes no matter which way the wind is blowing. Don't just hear the haunting call of the loons; watch them fish just yards away while you sunbathe on one of the 3 docks. Enjoy our 3 boats, including our brand-new pontoon boat, and our private mainland docking area with more places to swim, relax and explore.
Doze in the hammock under the pines after swimming laps around the island or fishing in the lake's prime fishing waters. Sip cocktails on the sandy beach and watch the sun set behind Moose Mountain. While the mainlanders buy blueberries at the local market, you pick them right on the island, from the bushes lining the water's edge. Relax in the comfortable living room with your feet up by the fire or reclining on the double length, cushioned window seat - you are never far from the lake.
Even though you may not want to leave your own little paradise, a 5 minute ride in one of the 3 powerboats brings you to all that the mainland has to offer. Fresh lobster on the Maine coast is a little over an hour away, historic Wolfeboro on Lake Winnipesaukee just 20 minutes, outlet shopping in North Conway, and trips to Mt. Washington, Storyland and more only a quick day trip. In less time than you spend commuting to work every morning you can get to golf, hiking and more antique shops than there are Starbucks in Seattle.
Picture a private hide-away with a large high-hearthed stone fireplace, full kitchen, screened porch, antique furniture and sandy areas and shallow water for the kids, deeper water for adults, all set in a reservoir quality lake and you just begin to get a sense of the experience awaiting you at Middle Island.
Pets negotiable, deposit required.
A quick 5 minute trip in one of our 3 boats to the mainland brings you to the village of Sanbornville, with several restaurants to choose from, as well as a well-stocked supermarket and great ice cream shop.

Several golf courses are at hand, antiquing, amusement parks, museums, and historic Mt. Washington are easy and scenic day drives. The Maine coast, with fresh lobster, LL Bean and Kennebunkport is 1 hour.
