Enjoy a rare vacation getaway in this rustic lakeside cottage in the woods. Nicknamed Battsford, it was built in the late 1930s, when people went to their 'camps' to find peace and quiet in natural surroundings. Nestled in the heart of 36 private acres, it is full of period charm, with a fieldstone fireplace and a front porch for relaxing and taking in the spectacular Belknap Mountains across Lake Winnipesaukee. A little beach makes wading or launching canoes/kayaks easy, and you can fish off the jetty. One dock slip for a small motor/sail boat is available for an additional fee. Private tennis court recently refinished. This is the perfect spot for an outdoorsy couple looking for a romantic interlude or a family wanting to spend old-fashioned summer time with the kids.

A guest wrote to me, after unsuccessfully trying to post review, so I am posting it here for her:
Staying at Battsford makes your imagination run wild. What must it have been like in a simpler time with few amenities (that you realize are unnecessary), unplugged days, awakening by loons vs. alarms. Views of the lake that change several times a day, thunderstorms where you can watch the storm move from Meredith to your front porch in a matter of minutes. If you are looking quiet relaxation and beauty, look no further!
We are located about one mile west of the bridge connecting Moultonborough Neck and Long Island on Lake Winnepesaukee.
This secluded lakeside cottage offers beautiful views, convenient lake access, and a private tennis court. One boat slip (24 ft. maximum) is available for an additional fee. Please visit oaklandingwest.com for more information about the property.
