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.

About DEBBIE

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

Why DEBBIE chose Lake Winnisquam

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.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned home from our wonderful one week family vacation at Camp Westwood.As I sit here and look at the house I wish that I was still laying on the deck...sigh.To be honest,I was a bit concerned about our privacy with the owners carriage house so close to ours but Mark and Debbie were so nice and were never intrusive at all during our stay.The house was just exactly what we hoped it would be! It was large enough to accommodate all ten of us comfortably,clean,well stocked and we even loved the creeky floors in the upstairs...just charming! Our four Grandchildren loved the sandy bottom and shallow water to play and snorkel.Our ten year old Grandson told us that it was the best vacation that he's ever had..better than our Disney trip! haha Big thanks again to Mark and Debbie for allowing us to share their beautiful family lakefront home and for being so nice.We hope to perhaps come back again in a few years if you'll have us!

Owner's Response: Mark & I are so glad all of you enjoyed your stay at Camp Westwood. It was nice seeing the kids having so much fun in the water (brings back fond memories of my sister and I spending all day playing out there!) We enjoyed meeting all of you and very much hope to see you again!
Thank you, Debbie & Mark

So I figure why not write a review on our ride back home to Rhode Island after leaving the BEST vacation spot in all of New Hampshire? Perfection is the one word that comes to mind when describing camp Westwood. I highly recommend this place for large families vacationing together such as ourselves. We are a party of 12...6 kids and 6 adults. More room and space than you can imagine to accommodate such a large group! All bedrooms are extremely comfy and cozy, all with fabulous views of the lake! And bed linens provided with beds already made..fabulous added bonus! Three full bathrooms is a HUGE plus with so many people as well! The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, cookware etc. with plenty of room to have a nice sit down dinner! Loved sitting on the porch looking over the lake in the morning and at nite. The lake itself is beautiful and so clean! For little ones this is the ideal swimming area because of the shallow water and VERY clean and clear area to wade out. Loved tying our floats to the dock and just laying there relaxing for hours! That was probably MY most favorite thing to do lol! The kids all loved playing and feeding the many ducks that visited us daily! We also enjoyed s'mores over the fire outside at night. One last thing I must make mention is the terrific owners! Mark and Debbie..two of the kindest sweetest and most helpful people we've ever met. Thank you both so much for your graciousness and all your advice and helpful tips for fishing. In all our years vacationing we have never caught so many BIG fish right from our very own dock!!! We look forward to seeing you both again next summer ...you aren't getting rid of this crazy crew that easy lol hope you know!! Lol have a great rest of the summer, fall, and winter! See you in 2015...God willing.
Oh PS: I cannot forget to mention...the cleanliness of this house is impeccable! it was so nice to just arrive and be able to unpack and settle right in!! Worth every cent!!!
Thank you again!! Lynn Beksha

Owner's Response: Hi everyone! We really enjoyed meeting and getting to know all of you! So glad you were able to experience so many wonderful things here while vacationing. The beautiful red full moon rise reflecting on the lake, the immature eagle soaring overhead, the blue heron flying right in front of the dock, catching so many fish off the dock, swimming, snorkeling & just plain relaxing on the lounge floats in the water. You are lucky to have such a wonderful family, and able to enjoy your vacations together. We look forward to your next trip--who knows, maybe you'd like to visit us this winter for some ice fishing! Thank-you, Debbie and Mark

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!
