SPECTACULAR WATERFRONT LOG CABIN W/ FANTASTIC SANDY BEACH (100')

Wakefield Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 15, Private Sandy Beach, Outdoor Hot Tub

Lovely lakefront log cabin home in picturesque Wakefield, NH with 100'+ sandy beach, on a peaceful cove on clean 700 acre Balch Lake. Three (3) private bedrooms (all with queen beds and doors), a downstairs 'kids kabin' with 3 daybeds with trundle beds sleeping 6 (or more if needed w/ add'l. mattresses and cot available), 2 1/2 baths, with two propane fireplaces, an outdoor hot tub, a covered outdoor deck looking out over the lake with a Weber gas grill, & a Tiki hut on our private sandy beach.

In the summer, come and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the loons, as well as canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, jet skiing, motor boating or simply swimming in the clear lake water. Our lake features a full service marina. Sit on the beach or the dock relaxing and taking in the sun, or playing bocce on the beach. A top rated golf course (Province Lake Golf course) is only 10 minutes away. In the evenings, make a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows under the starry nights!

In the winter, wonderful sledding in the back yard, ice skating on the lake, or snowmobiling trails through the area, as well as numerous ski resorts within as little as a 25 minute drive of our cabin.

And year round, the outdoor hot tub is a wonderful place to relax and talk with your family or friends.

Open to Vacation Exchanges: We love to travel -- my wife Donna of 26 years, our two daughters (ages 17 and 13) and perhaps our oldest daughter (who is out of college and not able to travel as much). We love warm locales (Hawaii, Florida, California as well as Europe. We can also do non-simultaneous exchanges.

Tempt us!!

Very fun place for the kids to swim and play there was plenty of room. The adults enjoyed themselves too. We went fishing and swimming during the days and beach and firepit at night. There was always someone enjoying the veranda and the hot tub. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and spacious the host is very hospitable.

Awesome Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at the cabin, which was perfect for a big group -- it comfortably slept 14 adults. The beachfront was perfect for horseshoes, cornhole, etc., and for hanging out by a fire at night. The house was in great shape and everything worked really well and was exactly as described. Steven was great to work with. We would definitely rent again and would highly recommend.

Helpful host, perfect experience

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I rented this cabin to get away from Boston after finishing our finals in the Spring. The cabin was better than we could've hoped for and we had an amazing 5-day stay.

The beds fit 13 of us very comfortably, and the rest of the space was perfect as well. We had room to sit around the living room / kitchen area together, or go down to the beach and all hang out on the dock or in the sand. We also loved the many other features of the cabin including the hot tub, canoes, fire pit, and more.

The location was perfect, as we were able to head out and get some groceries or a bite to eat when we wanted, but when sat out on the porch we felt nicely isolated. Unfortunately we got rained on a few days while we were there, but we were able to stay inside and play games while it blew over. Afterwards, we still had lots of time to go rowing or hiking out in the beautiful weather.

The cabin was perfect to live in and the owner was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire rental experience. I'd certainly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a similarly relaxing and hospitable get-away, and would definitely return again.

Beautiful cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cabin for a weekend in late April and it was absolutely wonderful. The cabin was spacious with rustic mountain charm and the chairs in the living room were the most comfortable chairs I have ever sat in. Although it rained for a bit during our stay, the hot tub and grill made for fun entertainment During the times when it wasn't raining we were able to canoe around the lake which was great. The property felt secluded without being isolated and we visited a local eatery (The Poor People's Pub) only about 10 minutes away for drinks one night which was quite nice.

There were 8 adults staying here, and with all the various beds throughout the cabin it was a very comfortable stay. The owner was super friendly and great to rent from. The property and cabin were well maintained and everything was extremely clean. We would all definitely rent this property/from this owner again and recommend it to anyone else looking for a weekend getaway destination that they can relax and desstress in. Five Stars!!!!

Amazing ski trip and getaway for the weekend!

  • 5 of 5
A few of us (12), decided on a last minute getaway and ski trip for the weekend, ,and this cabin was perfect. With all 12 of us, there was still plenty of space for people to sleep. The cabin was extremely cozy and homey, and more spacious then expected.

During the day we skied/snowboarded, at night we came to relax in the cabin and in the hot tub. From the cabin/deck there is a beautiful view of the frozen lake, and the hill was perfect for sledding.

The cabin was a little far from the main road and highway, which was perfect for us since we were looking for an isolated spot away from city life, being from Boston.

The only minor problem which we ran into, which Stephen forewarned us about, was the snowy/icy driveway. It definitely helps to have 4 wheel drive, but not impossible without it.

It was a pleasure working with Stephen. He responded quickly to calls, texts, and emails. He gave thorough information and instructions, and gave us a ring to check up on us on the night of our arrival. He was enthusiastic in helping us plan our trip, and ensured that everything in the cabin exceeded our expectations. We would definitely work with Stephen again in the future.

We are set on a quiet cove on Balch Lake, away from all the boating noise. Easy access to main part of the crystal clear lake, where there is great jet skiing, tubing, swimming and fishing. There is only 1 home close by, but our beach is very private and secluded. There are no beaches across the cove, as those homes have no beach front areas at all. So, you can feel comfortable just tanning or relaxing on the beach or the dock or floating in the lake on a tube, imbibing your favorite drink.

Once done with all the outdoor activities (be it in the sun or on the mountains), we have a wonderful 6 person outdoor hot tub that is available year round. Nothing like it after a hard day of skiing the blues or blacks on the mountains in the crisp, NH winter air or after a tough day out on the water or beach, swimming and tanning. Great way to unwind.

We are 45 minutes from the Portsmouth Circle and very easy to get to up Rte 16; just under 2 hours from downtown Boston. Once here, we have space for 5-6 cars to park down at the cabin. We also have a 2 car garage up the hill, which is used more for storage, although lots of parking there as well, if needed. We have over an acre of land on our property.

2 convenience stores 5 minutes in either direction on Rte 153. Large Hannaford's grocery store 15 minutes away in Ossipee. Poor People's Pub is a nice local bar and pretty good food as well -- 10 minutes away in downtown Wakefield. Miss Wakefield's Diner and Hen House are 10 and 5 minutes away - both serve fantastic breakfasts if you do not want to cook (great pancakes, omelettes, et al).

Other Activities: Boating, canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing --- all available on our lake. Local marina allows people to bring in their own boats. We provide canoe and kayak and some flotation devices to use. Our private beach is nice and sandy and approx. 100' long. Nice and gradual slope for little children. And you can jump off our dock into the lake. We are located in a nice, tranquil cove which does not get much boat traffic, so nice and quiet. Great to just jump on a flotation device and grab some rays with a drink of your choosing (we have a refrigerator in our tiki hut on the beach). And nothing better than building a fire on the beach at night under the stars next to the water.

Golf: Province Lake -- 10 minutes away on Rte 153 North; great course in wonderful shape

Indian Mound -- 20 minutes away on Rte 16 North; nice course

Kingswood -- 25 minutes away in Wolfeboro

Ski: King Pine -- 25 minutes away; great family mountain.

Cranmore -- 50 minutes away; more challenging

Attitash -- 65 minutes away; two great peaks

Wildcat and Black Mountain -- 70 minutes

Shawnee Peak -- 75 minutes
