Our seven bedroom lodge was built in 1915 as a private home. Cottages were built later and became Lawrence Cottages. The Luce family purchased the resort in 1960 and we continue to strive to maintain comfort and peacefulness while balancing the historical significance of waterfront housekeeping cottages.

Gary and Cindy Kunz purchased this cottage in 1960

A westerly exposure means sun all afternoon in our swimming area and beautiful sunsets!

Our customers (some have been returning for over 40 years now) feel there is something special about our beautiful location on this pristine lake.

A deep well on the property assures excellent drinking water.

Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing for all ages. Children love to catch fish in and around the boathouse and many improve their swimming skills during their stay.

There are few locations on the 'big lake' that offer so much privacy without a long drive to the store and services. Restaurants and groceries are only 2 minutes by car or boat. Restaurants ranging from family fast food to gourmet meals are within a couple of miles.

WINTER RENTAL - Cottage #3 is available to book year round.

Cozy NH cottage

  • 5 of 5
Colonial Pines Reort is a small group of cottages directly on the lakeshore. One of the cottages is open all year round, and I rented it for the Thanksgiving weekend. It is the perfect spot to get away from the hectic life in the city. Located within walking distance from Center Harbor, the cottages are on a quiet street with hardly any traffic. The cottage has a small living room, a fully equipped kitchen, and two bedrooms. The living room has a big and extremely comfortable sofa and a gas oven that kept the place warm in spite of freezing temperatures outside. The owners live on site and are very friendly and helpful. I'd certainly recommend the place and I 'll come back next year.

Great getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Colonial Resort to be close to our son who was at band camp on Lake Winnipesaukee. The location was incredible....close to shopping, restaurants, tourist attractions. The accommodations were very clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. Our hosts, Cindy & Gary were so very friendly and helpful. We had such a relaxing, peaceful stay at this wonderful cabin set on the beautiful lake. We even called a few weeks later to go back with our boys! Looking forward to another stay and highly recommend it to others!

Cozy room in a charming lodge

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect room for a couple that has a charming, old feel to it. The room is spacious enough for two, with a nice size bathroom that has a small hall separating the bathroom from the bedroom where linens can be kept. There is also a small covered, screened porch with two hanging hammock chairs that are pure bliss. Both the bedroom and porch face the water. If you need to have wireless connection, it's hassle free and no extra charge. The room is perfect if you don't want to do any cooking. We brought a cooler for breakfast /lunch/drinks, which we had on our boat and ate on the water - pure heaven! We ate out for dinners. There is a grocery store within walking distance, so no need to pack food ahead, if you choose not to. There are plenty of restaurants and pizza shops close by as well. There is a nice sandy beach on location and you can put your boat in at the local launch and drive it over to your own slip on premises. The owners are delightful, eager to please and very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. I highly recommend staying here for some relaxation and fun!

Exactly What We Had Hoped For

  • 5 of 5
We found Colonial Pines last minute for the 4th of July week and we really felt like we hit the lottery. We'll definitely be back. Great location, fishing, beachfront, swimming, the cabin we stayed in was exactly what we expected and very clean. Gary and Cindy are super nice people and were all about making sure we had a great vacation.

Most importantly...the kids really enjoyed themselves. It was great to see them put down their electronics for a few days and enjoy the outdoors.

Perfect summer retreat

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottages were well maintained (due to our late reservation and cottage availability we stayed in 2 different cottages during our vacation) and provided ample room for the 2 of us. The bathrooms and kitchens were clean. The view of the lake from one of the cottages was beautiful and the porch from the other cottage provided a peaceful resting place. We enjoyed the nice dock to watch the sunset and wished we stayed long enough to get a fishing license for we could see fish right around the boat house! We had a great time playing table tennis and wish the weather cooperated enough so we could have played shuffle board. We were able to enjoy the canoe available for guest use. For being such a quiet and peaceful place it was amazing how close we were to Center Harbor for shopping (Keepsake Quilting, grocery store and gift shops) and many restaurants (the Canoe - delicious!!!) and ice cream too! We picked up dinner from Hart's Turkey Farm (yum!!!) during the day and then heated it up later in our own kitchen so we could watch the sunset. The owners are incredibly friendly and make you feel welcomed. They were able to answer any question we had and made suggestions as to what to see or do. They have lived in the area for some time and are quite knowledgeable. We most definitely recommend this as the perfect quiet summer retreat.
