Why the Owner Chose Whitefield: While vacationing at a friend's house in the White Mountains in 1976, we had heard so much about Forest Lake. A curious turn short of the public beach landed us right next door to the log cabin that would soon become ours. Rebuilt in 1998, our family has enjoyed countless holidays, summers, winter breaks and weekends in our wonderful log cabin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Private Lighted Tennis Court, Private Swimming Raft, 2 Private Decks, Full Amenities, Coffee Maker, Toaster Oven, DirecTV on LCD TV in Den, and Master bedroom. So quiet you will hear the Loons wail in early morning along with the birds.

Making New Memories

  • 5 of 5
My husband and his family have been going to Forest Lake for over 80 years. Some have not been able to return in quite a few years. We decided to give it another try with the 5th generation in tow. It was wonderful. My grandchildren were with us along with my husband's cousin, her daughter and grandchild. We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect. We look forward to returning hopefully this summer. Thank you Jim Walker the house is everyting you said it was and more.

Absolutely wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a week at this fantastic home on Forest Lake. I don’t even know where to begin. As soon as we drove in the driveway we could see that this was a special place in a special location. The house itself is just beautiful – plenty of room. We were a group of 10 people (my husband and me, our son and daughter in law, our daughter and son in law and their 4 children, ages 3, 8, 10 and 18) The house just fit us to a “T”. I had read in previous reviews how well stocked the kitchen is and that is absolutely true! No need to bring any spices, sugar, salt, etc. It is all there. All the pots and pans that you could need. The view of the lake and mountains from the family room is spectacular! The bedrooms are perfect and the beds very comfortable – the laundry room is on the second floor which is so convenient. The two decks are lovely – one shady and one sunny! The awning is very helpful when the sun gets too hot or it rains! Very easy to operate from the remote on the wall. Plenty of chairs outside. The tennis court and basketball hoop was a big hit with the grandkids! My grandson loves to shoot baskets! There are so many places to sit and relax that it takes the week to try them all out!
The lake itself is gorgeous – we had some beautiful sunsets and got some great pictures! My favorite time of day was between 6 and 7 am when I would sit down on the dock all by myself with a cup of coffee looking at the water (which is smooth as glass at that time of day) and listening to the loons.
My grandsons had a blast doing some fishing. The swimming was awesome and they really enjoyed going out to the raft and jumping off! We couldn’t get them out of the water!
Jim has thought of everything, providing the Johnny boat and canoe for recreation, the lovely antique glider on the dock, and everything else to make vacations just perfect! He is so helpful and spends time explaining everything on the property and in the house. It is clear that this is a very special place to him and we are so grateful to him that we could spend a wonderful week at his little slice of heaven! Thank you Jim - We can’t wait to return next year!

Book this property now!!!

  • 5 of 5
I've been renting in Northern NH for the better part of 20 years, this property (could be referred to as a compound) by far, is the best I've ever stayed in. Aside from hitting the local grocery mart to restock the fridge, we never felt a need to leave. Photos do not do this place justice. Huge yard with over an acre of open space for kids (or adults) to play in, lit tennis courts with a basket ball hoop, and the lake is literally 8 feet from the back deck of the house. Incredible views. Everything you need for a great vacation. Make sure you bring your own life jackets if you're going to use the boats on the property, as there are several canoes/paddle boats for use.

James, the owner, is a warm, engaging and interesting man who will make sure you get the most of your stay by walking you through the intricacies of the property on the phone. Our group will definitely be returning this year and for years to come.

Owner's Response: Mark;

Your review of our NH Lake House is very much appreciated. I have always believed previous Renter reviews are more trustworthy than the owner's comments and without personal prejudice. This evaluation belongs to be a featured review, for it is a true representation of a very special home that has many amenities.

Thank you,
-Jim

what I expected

  • 5 of 5
Our family wanted to have a white Christmas and we surely got it and the frozen lake was fun with all the fresh snow. The house itself was comfortably warm and cozy and plenty of space for the party of nine people. The ski slopes are just minutes away, Bretton Woods @ White Mt., Attitash Mt., Cannon Mt., and yet you are tucked away in the woods. Jim W., the owner, was very helpful in giving info on places to eat, shop and visit.

Owner's Response: Falicitas;
Thank you for your excellent review. You gave valid reasons for those families interested in the Winter Beauty of the White Mountains to go skiing, ice skating, cross country skiing, snow-boarding, sledding, snowmobiling, or just walking on beautiful Forest Lake. The Lake House offers a warm fireplace and coziness to behold. Hope to see you next season or whatever season.
Best to you and family.

What a perfect place to call home for a week!

  • 5 of 5
We spent an idyllic week in Mr. Walker's home with our two 7 year olds, and couldn't have asked for anything better. The property is comfortable, well-kept, and beautiful. We rowed, canoed, saw a moose cross the lake, played tennis, watched a family of loons, enjoyed the playfulness of some otters, star-gazed, enjoyed the warmth of a fire in the outdoor fireplace, and had plenty of recharging quiet times just sitting by the lake. And all of that doesn't include the adventures we had in the vicinity! Mt. Washington one day, some black bears and a rock climbing tower another day, a local Gorge and Caves, and a (grown-up) night out at the local theatre (thank you for your babysitter recommendation - she was just wonderful!). We have hundreds of great photos, and thousands of great memories. Thank you for sharing your very special property, Mr. Walker!!
