LAKE WINNIPESAUKEE SHORE ROMANTIC COTTAGE:MOUNTAINS/LAKE/SUNSETS/PINES/FAB VIEWS

West Alton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This Romantic Cottage is on a large granite outcropping in the center of the cove with clear Views of the Ossippee Mountains and close by Islands, including the largest Island on the Lake. It is directly on Lake Winnipesaukee, which is 28 miles long and 8 miles wide and contains 365 islands.

The Cottage looks over to and past Diamond and Rattlesnake Islands. Very cozy Knotty Pine interior with 30 foot screened-in porch overlooking Lake. Facing the mountains is a 30 X 8 foot dock for boating/fishing/swimming and an upper deck for sunbathing, reading, photography. The crystal clear water is about 12 feet or so deep off the dock, plenty of draft room for boaters. The sunsets are stunning. Email owner for Virtual Tour.

The small neighborhood Beach is just down the road, about a 5 minute walk. The water has a beautiful sandy bottom, and there are a few flat-topped boulders further out in the water on which to sit while in the water. Ellacoya State Park and Beach is only a 5 minute drive; check out the sunsets, pine trees, fantastic beach, and picnic facilities there! And bring your camera for the incredible Sunsets!!

The location of my Cottage is perfect. A nice restaurant is just a 10 minute walk up the hill. Nearby towns with plenty of interesting shops, dining, and marinas are within a few minutes drive or boat ride. Go have fun and enjoy food and entertainment at The Weirs, Wolfeboro, Meredith, Alton Bay, and Center Harbor! Twice a day the Mount Washington ship goes by, and its docks for excursion trips are only 15 minutes away. In the mood for outdoors live music? Go have a blast at the Meadowbrook summer concert venue, a 10 minute drive to Gilford. My cottage is located near the base of Belknap Mountain, which is only a 5 minute drive away and offers great apple and blueberry picking, hiking, and Mountain and Lake views from the Summit and close to it.

The Funspot, which is terrific for a family outing of games and entertainment, is only 20 minutes away towards Meredith. And Meredith is also home to a few fantastic Common Man restaurants, offering both casual and white tablecloth dining: The Lakehouse Grille, Lago, and the Town Docks (t-shirt & shorts place; roam in the sand while you wait for your lobster, clams, other fish, and burgers). Try the fabulous Canoe Restaurant on the Lake in Center Harbor, too, which is accessible by Boat, Bike, or Auto.

A ten minute boat ride straight across from the Cottage gets you to the deepest part of the Lake (almost 200 feet) for bass, trout, and salmon fishing. And even though there is so much to enjoy in the area, my Cottage is a perfect, peaceful retreat!!

Come and enjoy the wind in the pines, beautiful clear Lake, the special calls of the loons, starry nights, and the sound of gently lapping Lake water....or more dynamic waves crashing against the granite outcropping, as you breathe the fresh mountain air and fall into fantastic reading....or deep sleep!

I am the 3rd generation owner of this classic pine Lake Cottage. I spent every Summer there while growing up. It's still my and my family's favorite place to vacation. The Cottage is so homey and cozy, and the big granite rock is so unusual and fun to enjoy while gazing at the mountains/sunset/lake/weather coming in. The dock accommodates boats real well. I also still love to go into the water off my dock and swim to the small beach a short distance away; I particularly love the sandy bottom, the graduated water depth for children, and the large, flat boulders in the water to sit on. I have a flat-coated retriever who loves to swim, so am very glad that you can bring your well-behaved dog with you on vacation!

Lorrie purchased this cottage in 1943

My Cottage has been my family for 3 generations. I remember so many great things, especially every July 4th eating salmon my grandmother cooked, sitting on the front porch watching fireworks!

This area of the world is so peaceful, yet exciting, with lots to do. It's gorgeous, and the sounds of the loons, the wind through the pines, and the Lake are so incredible. I've been to a lot of places, but this is so special. Come and sign my Guest Book, and read about the other Guests' adventures, like baby's first steps, getting engaged, teaching puppies to swim, getting to know each other again, laughing a lot, and spending quality friends and family time together!!!

The Cottage itself has a wonderful knotty pine interior, and in the living room we can see a few of the carpenters' finger prints on the cross beams from original construction (this is a great guessing game for the kids!). The coziness and simplicity of the Cottage is so fantastic....after months of working hard out there in the world, a real sanctuary--- or after a fun day exploring the Lake and the Mountains, a peaceful welcoming place. The front porch is everyone's favorite hang-out spot in the cottage: plenty to see, great eating area, and fantastic family gathering area! Terrific country smells, especially of the pines, and of the air when rain is about to come. Experience the thunderstorms rolling in from across the Lake (Hey, Yellow lightning + Green pines = Blue!!).

A most memorable getaway!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfectly charming cabin! What a fabulous location! My wife and I spent a long weekend here at the end of September. Stepping into the cabin is like walking into a time capsule from the 1930's. Cozy, warm knotty pine and exposed beams and the beautiful full legnth screened in porch made it easy to sit and just relax. The views of the lake and mountains in the distance are spectacular. The first day, the winds where whipping at 20 to 30 knots across the lake creating dramatic whitecaps and causing large waves to crash against the rocks and the big granite outcropping the cabin sits on. It was quite a sight to wake up to! The weekend went by all to quickly and we have decided that we'll have to go back next suumer with our boat and stay for a week. We just wish it wasn't such a long time!

Owner's Response: Chris and Susy--- Thank you so much for your kind comments! I'm so happy that you had such a good time at my cottage, and I'm thrilled that you liked the setting and this exposed beam simple pine cottage. Since I grew up there and am the third generation owner, hearing about your thoughts about this house that holds so many wonderful memories for me is extra special.
