A VERY SPECIAL PLACE AT A VERY SPECIAL RATE: SIMPLE, SECLUDED SHOREFRONT CABIN

Sandwich Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 8; fireplace, deck, boathouse and canoe/sailboat

This is a very special, peaceful place to spend a week--unlike the crowded, noisy waterfront properties listed at most real estate agents. The cabin has a 270 degree pond view with two docks, a canoe and sailfish. And it is among the most affordable on the pond.

It offers vacationers the best of both worlds: privacy and gorgeous views, a pond with no motorboats, with a real wilderness feel to it and abundant wildlife--yet close to major tourist attractions and outlet shopping as well as some of the best hiking, biking, fishing and outdoor recreation in New England.

It's been in our family for decades, and we try to maintain a family feel to our rental of it. The ideal tenant is not looking for the typical 'DVR in every room' rental, but something that is a throwback to a simpler time. People return year after year

Perfect Way to Get Away from It All: This rustic pine-panelled cabin offers seclusion, privacy and a wilderness feel--far from roads, at the end of a long dirt driveway, on a quiet pond full of wildlife--while also being close to many amenities. 75 miles from the seashore and Portland Maine, a short drive from Squam and Winnipisaukee, with their classic tourist attractions: water slides, water sports, restaurants. Not far from North Conway with its outlet shoping and cog railway up Mt. Washington. The towns of Sandwich and Tamworth are classic New England villages with white clapboard churches and antique stores, and gorgeus scenery that attracts many artists and craftsmen. There's also tennis in Sandwich, as well as golf and hiking, biking in the White Mts., trout fishing in nearby trout ponds, and fishing, swimming, kayaking, and canoeing right on Bearcamp Pond, with its islands and public beach. At night you'll be lulled to sleep by the loons calling to each other, and you may well see deer, moose and beaver.

A Very Special Place at a Very Special Rate: This is a very special place to spend a week--unlike the crowded, noisy waterfront properties listed at most real estate agents. And the cottage listed here is among the most affordable on the pond--by several hundred dollars.

It's been in our family for decades, and we try to maintain a family feel to our rental of it. The ideal tenant is not looking for the typical 'DVR in every room' rental, but something that is a throwback to a simpler time. Most people return year after year.

Autumn Sublime

"Autumn Sublime"
Bearcamp is nestled on a knoll at the pond's northern edge affording spectacular mountain and water views and sun from the east in the mornings and from the west in the afternoons. The docks are located on both sides, making it easy to launch a resident canoe or swim or fish from either point. The house is fully equipped with a kitchen, large family room with a fireplace and a bedroom and bath in the main cabin; the attached bunkroom has two additional bedrooms that sleep 6 and a bathroom and storage area. Only 5 minutes from us Route 25 and you feel the special remoteness and timelessness that is so characteristic of the Sandwich, New Hampshire region. Walking trails from Bearcamp lead to open country roads for cycling or a well-maintained trail system courtesy of the Wonalancet Outing Club, providing access to Mt. Chocorua or the many companion peaks in the Ossipee Ring. Fall is spectacular but summer is also a great time to be here because of the swimming, boating and quiet reading on the shaded decks attached to the house. If you want sun and solace, park yourself on either dock and enjoy!

Rustic and Peaceful

"Rustic and peaceful"
I stayed here as part of a ladies' weekend of artists who wanted a getaway for peace and quiet and friendship. The setting is lovely--we saw a moose in the pond (which is clean, cold, and still swimmable in October if you get the right weather) and a pair of loons. Hot shower and indoor plumbing, of course, but if matching cups and new furniture is your thing, don't stay here--this is a classic "camp," not a fancy Maine cottage. If you're looking for a rustic, sweet, peaceful getaway, this is it! I adore this place.
