Newfound Lake is a quiet little lake, considered one of the cleanest in the world. It's 'tucked away', yet is close to busy Lake Winnepesauke. Newfound lake is 2.5 miles wide, seven miles long, and 180 feet deep. The lake water quality is closely monitored by the NLRA Association. And judging from the number of fishermen on the lake, it offers 'pretty good fishin'.

"I must admit I was a bit nervous about renting a house "sight unseen" off the internet. But I shouldn't have worried - this place was everything we had hoped for. Your thoughtfullness and hospitality made us feel right at home with all the provisions. Everything was here right down to the last detail.We also enjoyed meeting your family (and dogs!). Your grandchildren were very kind and helpful and nice friends to our children. Ellie and Morgan just loved frolicking with Kaiser, Sky and Zoe.Thank you for sharing your wonderful place on the lake. our only regret is that the week went to fast."
We were very familiar with Newfound Lake, having owned a home in Bristol for many years. We were not, however, familiar with Whittemore Point and it was absolutely wonderful. Our family, including our young grandson, and our daughter's 2 Yorkies, had a fantastic time. It was easily assessable to Storyland and Clark's Trading Post, which our grandson loved. There is a great beach to loll away the afternoon, reading or swimming. The owners and their family are lovely, lovely people - we've already booked it for next year!
We had a great time here. The house itself was clean and very well equipped, and had plenty of space for our group of 4 adults, a couple kids, and a dog. We liked that the layout of the house (with bedrooms on different levels) allowed for more privacy and quiet. The lake was wonderful - beautiful and relatively quiet, with some of the cleanest lake water I've ever seen! The owners were very friendly and welcoming.
My wife, 13 yr old son and in-laws stayed here for the Mooseman 70.3 half ironman weekend, June 3-6, 2011. Everything about the location and cottage was perfect. Even though the water was cold, my son and I swam off the private beach, played with the kayaks and canoes made available by our gracious hosts. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need. The 5 of us had plenty of room with the 3 floors of living space.
Thank you very much Bob and Marsha for the fantastic weekend.
This cottage is very clean and well maintained. I recommend it for weekend getaways. The sleeping arrangements accomodate six people but the kitchen/living room area is small and it was a tight fit for the six of us. The owner allowed liberal use of the beachfront, kayaks, and other water toys. The biggest drawback is the lack of view of the lake and beach. The cottage is located directly behind the owners house and the view of the lake and beach is blocked.
This is a great cottage to rent if the lake and beach are not your primary reason to visit Newfound Lake.
Our family of 4 plus our 6-month old puppy had quite the active, fun, and relaxing vacation week at this wonderful place. There was plenty of room (1 bedroom we hardly touched). The owners were extremely helpful with advice regarding local attractions without being overly intrusive and even let one of our boys borrow some food coloring so he could complete a 'science experiment' on one of the rainy days. We enjoyed many of our meals right at the cottage and that worked out well.
The online description of the place was right-on. We did a little biking and hiking, but enjoyed much of our time swimming and boating in the lake. In water over my head, I clearly could see the bottom of the lake-- so clean! Our 2 boys (7 and 9) were captains of their kayaks while my wife, pup, and I stuck close by in our canoe while exploring the lake. Smores on the sandy beach really made one night special.
Our trips to Clark's Trading Post and the Lost River Gorge were great for the kids and us! We all got to ride segways at Clark’s- pretty cool. Awesome caves at Lost River. During the Clark’s and Lost River trip, we did board our puppy with a local dog sitter/kennel because our dog did not do well when left alone in a crate in our cottage. The local boarding worked out fine. Everyone, including the pup, sure did sleep well in the evenings.
The owner's friendly dog, Kaiser, helped introduce our pup to the water and beach and was a great role model. The dogs played so well together! It was clear that our dog truly loved the 'off leash' experience and I got more relaxed with it as the week went on. It's been almost a week since we were there and I still feel that relaxed healthy feeling.
We are grateful that we were able to enjoy this wonderful place together. I'm hoping that we may be able to return to this 'piece of paradise' again some time.
This cottage was perfect! My husband and I went here for our one year anniversary. There was more than enough space to accomadate the two of us. The owners' dog, Kaiser was so sweet! Next time, we'll be bringing our own dog so the two of them can play.
The private beach was amazing. We used the beach chairs that were provided for us and watched the sunset while we sipped on some cold beers. During the day, we went fishing on the lake as well as kayaking. For lunch during the day, we used the grill and made some tasty burgers and hot dogs. And for dinner, we went to a nearby restaurant that was right on the lake and had the best fish and chips we've ever tasted!
The owners were great... they were there if we needed some help yet still allowed us to have our own privacy. Having access to beach chairs, a row boat, two kayaks, and some fishing poles was wonderful. We'll definitely be going back soon-- most likely for our 2 year anniversary!
