Silver Lake House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 12, Lake waterfront, WiFi Internet

Come and enjoy our cozy knotty pine home on exclusive Silver Lake in Madison. You'll love having your own private beach (sand toys provided), and the gradual decline of the lake bottom lets you walk out many feet into the clean clear water - no unexpected drop-offs here! There's an outdoor grill for your use, cook in the fully functional kitchen, or get takeout at any of the many close by restaurants. Dine on the deck and watch a sunset so beautiful it will bring tears to your eyes, or take a break from the lake and sit in the rear screen porch and enjoy the loon song at night. With all the activities the area has to offer - Barnstormers Theatre in Tamworth, Indian Mound Golf in Ossipee, shopping outlets in North Conway, Go-Carts and Mini-Golf all within a short drive, you'll only wish for a longer stay so you could do it all!

We provide a canoe, but there are also many places close by that rent kayaks, speed boats, and party boats. We are less than a mile away from the boat launch if you plan to bring your own. Our dock is typically in the water from Memorial Day thru Labor Day, but there is plenty of room on our beach for a boat or two if you're looking for spring or fall fishing when the dock is out. We'll point you to the best areas in the lake to catch bass or trout - but only if you ask.

Just check our availability calendar and seasonal rates about half way down on this page. We welcome guests during the summer season for full weeks only, but during the spring and fall we rent by the week or 3-night weekends on an 'as avalable' basis.

Best Place for Kids

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with 5 adults and 5 small children. Family voted best place we've ever stayed. The house is very comfortable and the beach area is perfect for small children. There is plenty of space to play in shallow water, a lovely sanded area, and the water is very clean. And there was plenty of shade for the adults on duty to sit and watch the kids. Tons of sand and water toys available. As stated, stairs are very steep, but even our 3 3-year-olds managed well. Kitchen provided everything needed, many staples were available. Close enough to Conway for shopping and movies. Plenty of parking, quiet location, and unequaled sunsets. My only suggestion would be that if you have small children, and they are sleeping upstairs, invest in a $12 potty chair at Walmart. Saves navigating the stairs in the middle of the night. Loved the fact that they provided the linens and towels. This place truly had everything we were looking for, and we had a great week.

Silver Lake Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was very comfortable and we could not have asked for much more. (Perhaps a few dumber fish!) The description was very accurate-clean, peaceful, and the pics really did not show the true spaciousness of the property. The owners are great people as we had the pleasure of meeting them. Now if only they would be willing to adopt us so we could spend even more time at one of the finest lakes in New Hampshire. Looking forward to next year...

A Vacation to Remember

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (plus our two faithful dogs) had the vacation of a lifetime at this wonderful getaway on Silver Lake in Madison, NH. From the moment we arrived, we fell madly in love with the home and the lake. Our search began in February and Ann, the owner, was a joy to work with from the very beginning. I cannot say enough about how patient she was answering each of my numerous emails, which helped us enormously in our decision. We rented this home sight unseen, which is always a gamble, but her description and the pictures are exactly what we found there. No disappointment! The great part about this home is that all we needed to bring with us were some clothes and food, and suntan lotion. The place had everything we needed, from floats and sand toys for the children, to beach chairs, umbrellas, a canoe, and a fully stocked kitchen for us to cook our meals. They even had a grill large enough to cook for our crew of 12. Having two living rooms made it nice, while the children played video games in one, the adults could sit and visit in the other. We loved eating our dinners in the screened porch area, then relaxing on the deck and watching the most spectacular sunsets any of us had ever seen. We never knew there were so many colors in one sunset until our vacation at Silver Lake. Although there is much to do in the area, our days and evenings were spent enjoying the private beach or fishing from the dock because the children were having so much fun they never wanted to leave! We brought along our kayaks and enjoyed early morning trips on the lake to watch the sunrise (with the loons as our water guides) and filled our afternoons exploring the lake and its points of interest. This lake is quiet, peaceful, and crystal clear. In fact, during the week, there were very few, if any, motor boats, which was a nice surprise. With five bedrooms, there was plenty of sleeping space for everyone, although I caution that the stairs to the upstair rooms are steep and narrow and not recommended for very young children or the elderly. They would be better off in the two large downstairs bedrooms. Overall, we made memories that will last a lifetime and came home relaxed and refreshed. Our family is hoping to make this our annual vacation spot. We are so glad we found this home and beautiful lake and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to make some memories of their own.

A Little Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Four adults, two children, and two dogs had plenty of room in this charming home. With the house located on the east side of Silver Lake, we truly witnessed (as promised) the most spectacular sunsets over both the lake and the stunning White Mountains looming above it. We all fell in love with the view. And at night you can look forward to seeing the Milky Way streak across the open lake sky. We ate lots of our meals at the table on the deck overseeing the sights.

The lake bottom drops gradually down in front of the house, which allowed the children to swim and play with ease. And the owners provided lots of swim toys for their enjoyment. We found the water, during August, to be a delight--surprisingly warm for a New Hampshire lake. And sparkingly clear! The wind could be strong at times, rippling up the water, but no stronger than a good breeze at an oceanfront. Moreover, the speed boats on the water (most used for water-skiing) were few and not intrusive. No jet skis (thankfully).

We found the house both clean and well-maintained when we arrived. And it was fully equipped with all the necessities. We even found long forks for cooking marshmallows around the small fire pit provided on the beach. Two separate living rooms also allowed the adults and children to have their own space when needed.

A large canoe is provided, but we brought our own kayaks. There was plenty to explore, such as going down a small channel that empties into Silver Lake over to Cook's Pond. This long channel was a little bit of paradise with its water lilies, wildflowers, and bird life.

When the children (ages 6 and 10) got restless, there were also fun places nearby for them to visit: a monkey-bar park (which they LOVED) and miniature golf.

One qualifier: this is a place for older children. The stairs to the bedrooms on the upper floor are fairly narrow and steep for walking up and down.

Silver Lake is a section of the town of Madison, New Hampshire. The Lake is about 2 by 3 miles and noted as one of the cleanest lakes in the area. There's a boat launch a half mile from the house. In addition to swimming, sailing, boating, and fishing (the lake is stocked with trout, small and large mouth bass, land locked salmon and more), there are historic sites and hiking trails in the immediate area. A short ride away are movie theaters, museums, 18 hole golf courses, miniature golf courses, historic sites, amusement parks, local festivals, antique shops, outlet shopping and many restaurants. The closest concert venue for major name acts is the Meadowbrook Pavilion (40 miles). The view of Mount Chocurua and the Sandwich Mountain range is breathtaking and sunset is spectacular. For day trips, there are Lost River, The Flume, hikes along the Kancamangus Highway, the alpine and waterslides at Attitash, StoryLand, and Santa's Village. Logan Airport in Boston, MA is about 120 mi.
