Lake Winnisquam Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Special 2 Night Sept/Oct 2014

Beautiful flowers, lots of wildlife, awesome fishing!Our year-round house sits on the West shore of Lake Winnisquam. This camp has been in our family for three generations. The 24' fireplaced livingroom was originally a one room school house in Laconia, and brought across the ice by draft horses. We have pictures of the original owners & the original B&B guest book for 'Camp Westwood' from the late 1800's. Beautiful spacious sunny rooms all have a view of the lake & Belknap Mountain Range. The kitchen has all the amenities: Jenn-air stove, lg frig, dishwasher and disposal. The large dining area has 2 large bow windows overlooking lake. Play cards on the 24 ft porch with 3 large picture windows and a slider to the deck overlooking the lake. Sit by the outside fireplace eating s'mores and watch the moon rise over the mountains across the lake.

Take in the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the bench of your private 40 ft dock which has easy access to water, for your enjoyment in summer. Fishing on Lake Winnisquam is fantastic Summer & Winter, we can show you our secret spots! Sit at the picnic table and watch the eagles, osprey, great blue herons, loons & ducks. There are bird houses and feeders all around the yard. My Grandfather started the beautiful flower, vegetable and herb gardens which surround the property. Follow the native trout babbling brook which borders the property and travels thru the woods either walking or snowshoing. Relax and enjoy the private, woodsy setting, located on a quiet dead end road, away from traffic. In winter, enjoy great Rainbow & Lake Trout fishing in front of the Camp - no 'Ice Fishing House' needed! The outlet mall, golfing and mini golf, antiquing, hiking and farm stands, cider & pumpkins, Gunstock mtn. Recreational Area, Weirs Beach and the Mt. Washington cruise ship, only 20 minutes away. All types of boat & jetski rentals nearby on Lake Winnisquam. Ice fish, cross-country ski, iceskate, snowmobile right at Camp!

My husband & I have been lucky enough to have this property in our family for three generations. We live in the carriage house next door. We are avid fishermen and love all 4 seasons here. We have lots of great memories of good times & friendships made over the years. Lake Winnisquam fishing is terrific: Lg & sm. mouth bass, lake trout, rainbow trout, white & yellow perch & sunfish. The wildlife is abundant. The gardens are beautiful! We love to watch the sunrise and the moon rise over the mountains across the lake. We live in a wonderful neighborhood!

DEBBIE purchased this chateau / country house in 1925

We are so thankful that our Grandmother & Grandfather chose this spot back in 1925! Step back in time and read the old guest books and journals from 1903! It is such a beautiful location with the Million Dollar View! We are so happy to be able to spend 4 seasons here.

Relax, quiet, beautiful surroundings. The house is full of charm with sunny spacious rooms filled with history. We have two 45' HDTVs, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. We have an apple tree, and fresh beautiful flowers & herbs surrounding the property, ready for picking! We enjoy feeding the birds and watching them nest in the houses by the lake.

During Winter we ice fish in front of the house, x-country ski, downhill ski/tubing, snowmobile to Canada from our front yard/snowshoe the woods exploring animal tracks along the brook.

COZY HOME AND VERY KIND HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We had a great long winter weekend at Lake Winnisquam! Debbie and Mark were very nice and helpful and it was cool to learn the history of the house. The houes is cozy with many areas that allowed us to gather and relax together. In all there were 12 of us, including 5 kids and we never felt crowded! The kitchen and dining room area are fabulous and the views are spectacular (especially in the early morning sun!). I am sure that in the heart of summer it is even more beautiful. Thank you again Mark & Debbie, maybe next time we will catch more fish!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We enjoyed having all of you here. We enjoyed talking with you out at the ice traps and especially had fun watching the kids feeding the ducks! We'll send you some photos that I took of the kids getting a fishing lesson from their Dad (very cute)! We hope you will consider visiting us again!
Sincerely, Deb & Mark

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Cannot say enough about the whole visit and experience. This was our second annual visit to Camp Westwood. Not sure there are enough usable characters in this review to tell all of the detail of how Debbie and Mark go above and beyond to be sure your visit is memorable and comfortable. It IS the place to reconnect with nature, reconnect with family and or friends or just reconnect with life. No where have I felt more at home and we certainly look forward to coming back next year.
We have already recommended this get away home to more than one friend.
Thanks again, Debbie and Mark for a most wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for those kind words! We enjoy you and your family and look forward to you visits! It is great seeing families come together and make lasting memories. We love watching the kids having fun in the water, water skiing, and enjoying the lake and area. It is those kind of wonderful memories that I had growing up here on the lake with my family and glad the tradition is growing with your family too! See you soon!

We enjoyed kayaking, boating, bonfire in full moon, playing piano and also picking fresh vegetables and apples from Debbie's garden.

WARM HOSTS, FUN TIME, BUT HOUSE NEEDS IMPROVEMENTS

  • 3 of 5
Thank you for hosting our family reunion. We enjoyed meeting you and appreciated your sharing the garden! Your house is well situated on Lake Winnisquam. There are great views of the sunrise, a long dock, various boating amenities and outdoor grilling. Some areas inside the house could benefit from refurbishing, particularly the upstairs. Refurbishing should focus on improved ventilation and updates to the amenities (shower curtains, handles, mattresses, etc.). While we enjoyed hanging out around the nicely modeled kitchen and dining room, other areas on the 1st level were moldy and a little "tired" - likely a common problem for houses so close to the lake.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you at our lake house! Sorry you felt the house needed improvements. We just put in new wall-to-wall rug on porch & new flooring in bathrooms. The upstairs bathrooms are being redone this Winter. We have new mattresses in upstairs bedrooms and just bought a new twin bunkbed with full bottom bed & twin trundle. We don't have a mold issue, but this Spring was an extra wet one. We hope you will consider returning and see the updates to the house! Please visit our website to see improvements!

EXCELLENT PLACE FOR FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We stated at Camp Westwood for 10 days in June 2013. For us this was a bit of a family reunion with several couples and the children coming and going over the 10 days. The house was perfect for this with plenty of space. The lake is just the right temperature for swimming and very shallow and safe. Three different boata were supplied (rowboat with electric motor, canoe and inflatable kayak). All got used regularly, and we rented a ski boat one day. We relaxed, walked in the mountains, read books, rode bikes, played games, and fed the ducks. It was great. All this and No Bugs! in the evening. Mark and Debbie were excellent hosts. We are likely to book again.
