Tuftonboro Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 8 Bedrooms, 3.25 Baths, (Accommodates 16 Maximum )

The seven-bedroom Lodge, built in 1907 as a family summer cottage, accommodates fourteen very comfortably and is a great house for large family or group gatherings. The Lodge is a traditional shingle-style lake house that has been lovingly maintained by four generations of the same New England family.

The Lodge offers thirteen sunny, many-windowed rooms that capture lake breezes. A fieldstone fireplace and a 45-foot wrap-around lakefront screened porch distinguish this gracious summer property. Its shaded yard, gently sloping waterfront lawn and naturalized perennial gardens create a relaxing, private environment. The Lodge is located on a westerly-facing shoreline, offering expansive water views and beautiful sunsets along 150 feet of private waterfront. It also features a 24-foot permanent dock, a floating swim raft, and one additional boat mooring.

Our guests have embraced the ambiance of our traditional lakefront Lodge:

“I stayed at “The Lodge” with a family group of thirteen for a week in July 2009. It was a great experience and we all hope to return someday. We found the house to be well kept - very clean and in good condition. The rooms were all comfortable and nicely furnished. One of the best features was the large wrap-around screened-in porch where our entire family ate dinner every night and watched some of the most amazing sunsets any of us had ever seen. The lakefront was awesome with a very nice boat dock, a swim-float that our kids loved (ages 11-21), plus comfortable chairs, shady trees, a hammock, a tree swing and more. I highly recommend this place. It has one of the best views you can find on the lake and it’s a great value… and as an added plus, the owners are very nice people.” Brian M., Andover, MA

“Some of our fondest summer memories have been created in this beautiful summer home. My children love to fall asleep to the sound of the loons, and there was nothing better than sitting on the porch at the end of the day as the sun sets over the lake. We’ve enjoyed staying here with a large group, where there is plenty of room for everyone. We loved going to Wawbeek (The Lodge), my daughter just asked me the other day when we were visiting again!” Nancy S., North Berwick, ME

The Wawbeek Shore is easily accessible to Wolfeboro (8 miles south), Melvin Village (2 miles north), and Center Harbor (8 miles north), several of Lake Winnipesaukee's most charming historic towns. A nearby caretaker is available to address property and local area questions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our five children with our eight grandchildren came from around the country for a vacation in NH. We stayed at the delightful Lodge at Wawbeek on the eastern shore of the lake. The weather was perfect and we had magnificent sunsets very evening. Most of the family slept late, but a few early risers enjoyed the special quiet time when the Loons sing and the sun illuminates the sky. Very early one morning the lake was a tranquil as any lake can ever be and I canoed towards Black Island with two of my grandchildren.

A we approached the island I noticed a large bird swoop down to the water and soar high into a tree. We stopped paddling and edged close to the spot where the bird was perched. It was quickly apparent that we were watching a Bald Eagle enjoying its breakfast of fresh fish. After a few minutes the Eagle consumed the meal, cleaned is beak on the branch and again took flight. As it flew away a feather floated to the placid surface and I was able to retrieve it. Life doesn't get any better than this!

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family gets together every other year. One year Vancouver, one year Duck, NC, one year Cape Cod, this was one of our favorites. The Lodge is right on the water with plenty of room to move around and everyone can find their favorite place to read, relax, swim, canoe, access the Internet and explore. When we were there an eagle swooped on the lake, caught a fish and flew to a tree on the property for its feast. The loons at night were magical. There is plenty to do in the area, including the Castle in the Clouds, Wolfboro shopping and boat rentals, the Mt. Washington sightseeing boat from Center Harbor and Wolfboro. The house was clean, well equipped with puzzles, games, cable TV, and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. For a true lake house experience, this fits the bill.

Great place to relax and enjoy family and nature.

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered at the Lake House for a week in July. Five children, their spouses and eight grandchildren came from five different states. As we continue to reflect on our time, we recall how peaceful and comfortable our time together was. The house is located on the east shore of the lake and every evening we enjoyed a spectacular sunset, each one different as the sun set over the lake and behind the mountains.

The kitchen had recently been renovated and the eating and sleeping arrangements were excellent. Our family enjoyed swimming in the clear waters and to a float. We also enjoyed canoeing along the shore.

It was one of the most relaxing vacations we had and months later we are still talking about it as we enjoy over 1000 photos.

The facility was "as advertised," clean, well maintained and the owner was helpful in answering our questions. We would recommend it to others and look forward to returning sometime in the future.

The Lodge at Wawbeek is an absolutely beautiful place, inside and out. My large family group and I were more than comfortable in the lovely house with its spacious rooms and homey furnishings. The newly renovated kitchen is so pretty and it is stocked with all the "tools" you need. The spacious lakefront offers breathtaking views, crystal clear water and a tree swing that was loved by all. The owners are so nice and extremely accommodating. We all can't wait to go back!

4 generations of family fun!

  • 5 of 5
My extended family spent the last week of July at this wonderful lodge on the lake. We covered every age from 9 to 90 and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. Early risers enjoyed calm quiet waters for fishing, kayaking and other paddle sports. As the day went on, swimmers sunbathed on the floating dock and boaters had plenty of activities to keep themselves busy. Some of us chose to cozy up on the large wrap around porch with a good book. In the evenings, the sunset was spectacular, the loons peaceful, and the board games got quite competitive! This lodge is kept in amazing condition. Everything works perfectly and is well maintained. The kitchen is brand new and stocked with anything you might possible need. With eight bedrooms everyone had plenty of space and a comfortable bed to sleep in. The kitchen and porch were big enough to accommodate our large family dinners, and there are lots of little sitting areas throughout the house. We created memories that will stay with us for a lifetime and are already talking about returning next year!

Homesick for the Wawbeek Lodge

  • 5 of 5
My 3 siblings and our families (14 of us total) vacationed together and quickly made ourselves at home in this beautiful, rambling lodge. We made the trip from our respective homes in GA, NC, and MI and enjoyed a week's respite from a summer heat wave. The kitchen is newly renovated and is well equipped with brand new large and small appliances (including a microwave and food processor) plus pots, pans and ample plates, glasses and cutlery. The lodge is aesthetic appealing and comfortable. We sunned by the lake during the day and enjoyed the screened-in porch overlooking the lake during the evenings. There were plenty of options for day trips for antique shopping and sight-seeing. We were sad when our week's rental was up and vowed to do it again next year. We now feel homesick when we look at the pictures!

The Lodge is very well maintained, right on the lake with a large spacious wrap around screen porch that looks out over the lake. There are modern amenities (wifi online access, dishwasher, washer/dryer) along with a nice rustic NH lake camp feel. My family had a mini-reunion and all 11 of us were well accommodated and comfortable. We would certainly come back for another week on the lake.
