About Heather or Jay McGaffigan

Heather grew up in nearby Plymouth, NH and spent a lot of time at Newfound Lake as a child. Jay is from Massachusetts, but vacationed in the New Hampshire lakes region with his family every summer. We both love the area and wanted to purchase a property where we could share the beautiful area with our two daughters and extended family.

Heather or Jay McGaffigan purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Heather or Jay McGaffigan chose Newfound Lake

We toured several other houses for sale around Newfound and fell in love with the open spaciousness of this chalet. We knew it would be a great house to entertain friends and family, as well as a great rental property. We liked the location near Wellington State Park and hiking trails and the closeness of the shared beach.

What makes this chalet unique

The house is fairly private and you do not hear the neighbors. The yard is big enough for our girls and friends to run around. There is ample parking for 4 cars in the driveway. The large deck is a great place to hang out and dine on in the summer months. The interior has modern appliances, countertops and flooring, which bring warmth to the house.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our fall weekend vacation- beautiful area, lots of comfy couches, and nice and warm. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the space is flexible enough to accomodate a crowd- we had three couples and a baby, and there was room to spare. Heather was very responsive and helpful (perhaps most important of all). We'd love to come back to experience the place in summer too!

Relaxing Girls' Week

Relaxing Girls' Week
  • 5 of 5
For the 26th year our group of "girls" have taken a week to go manless and kidless. We always look for a comfortable place to kick back, read, play games, and relax. This property perfectly fit the bill. We went in the fall and enjoyed cool nights and daytime hiking at Wellington State Park. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Needed a place to stay when my daughter got married at Ragged Mountain. Wonderful, large house that was so well stocked with the basics, plus a washer and dryer. Very clean and no problems at all. The landlords were wonderful answering questions and being very accommodating. Have nothing bad to say and will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Fabulous Week on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent last week on Newfound Lake in this adorable retreat. We rent vacation spots a couple of times each year and this spot does not disappoint! Newfound Lake itself is great, of course, but the house is charming too. There's plenty of space (we had 4 adults and 2 kids), the front deck is huge and overlooks the lake, the washer and dryer came in very handy, and it's only about 3 minutes to the closest little market which is all we ever needed. We found it homey, welcoming and relaxing. There were lots of fans ready for us to use as we pleased, the kitchen was well equipped, and the little one enjoyed discovering the cache of movies and games.

Heather was very accommodating and responded to all inquiries quickly. I have no hesitations recommending this location to other potential renters.

Great Family week

  • 5 of 5
We were very comfortable in this well kept home during our stay. It was very spacious for a family of four, and the owners are very considerate having furnished and maintained the house very well. We appreciated how much they thought about their tenants' experience. The binder full of suggestions for eating out, sight-seeing and shopping is brilliant. We consulted it every day--better than internet or GPS. Every little thing we thought of turned out to be right there-from kitchenware to beach chairs, to night lights and fans. And we learned to play almost all of the board games.

Our Family of four with young kids enjoyed the beach space every day. Newfound lake is phenomenally clean (literally "clean" and clear water) and pretty. The beach for this home has a rocky shore for the first few feet--water shoes could make it easier for kids to get in, (as another reviewer accurately noted) and with goggles and snorkels, our kids loved exploring the waters every day. We ran into families with kids in the neighboring rental properties and our kids remember their stay very fondly. --A whole week of what's-not-to-like?! It was 100% positive for us.

The unknowns and points of concern for us were: safe parking for car? bathroom fit the bill? Can we store and prepare food, and will beds, sleeping conditions, leave something to be desired? Can we wash clothes? We were relieved and pleasantly surprised as all needs were met. If you feel a need for a yard to run and play in, you won't really have that, but the gathering and living spaces are very nice, and this home has it's own shared beach space with a beautiful view. Even people with the highest standards would have to see this home as modest but quaint, and charming. I can't imagine anyone who is looking to relax being disappointed with this property or area.
Thank you HG and JG!

Great weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend ! We were at the lake for a wedding. The cottage was very spacious and clean! The location was great. We enjoyed crossing the street and heading to the beach and walking around the state park. There was plenty of room for a family gathering due to the size of the cottage and the deck; everyone had a wonderful time. First time at Newfound Lake; it may not be our last!
