THE CABIN OF YOUR DREAMS - HEAVENLY OLD WORLD CHARM !

Mirror Lake, Tuftonboro Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is one of the oldest and most loved places on Lake Winnipesaukee! It was built by my great grandfather in about 1899, and it still looks exactly the way it did then. The cabin sits on 250 feet of pristine Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront. We have a natural sandy walk-in beach. There is a dock to tie your boat up to and a deck that sits on the lake edge. We face west in a partially secluded cove with fabulous view of the amazing sunsets and mountains.

There is much history in this rustic cabin which you can feel when you walk in. It feels homey and comfortable. We have a big wood fireplace which makes up the heart of the cabin. Many nights even in the summer you will find guests making a fire and sitting in the antique rocking chairs, just to hear the crackle of the fire and feel that old world charm.

We have a 16 foot dock which can be used to tie up boats or fish off of. It also one of the many places to relax and watch the sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Wendy,We had a FABULOUS time!! Your home on the lake is absolutely charming! We especially loved the family photos and knowing the home had been in your family for 100 years! The views were amazing, The sandy beach and raft so much fun for swimming. You and your brother left great information so we knew everything we could possibly need. The weather was great as well.We did manage to get my mother up there for the day. She sat on the beach near the picnic table, then on the front porch and in the living room. She grew up in a home very much like your lake home, a home with a porch nestled among tall pine trees. She loved being there enjoying her grandkids and looking at the pictures of your family. My 15 year old caught his first fish that day which was quite the event!! I will try to send you some photos soon!We would love to return next summer!Again, thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Everything you can ask for in a lake house!!

  • 5 of 5
Prior to booking this lake house, our family researched many other properties. This house had everything we were looking for: walk-in sandy beach, dock for fishing, floating dock for tanning, an outdoor pit for campfires, fireplace for cool mornings and late evenings, porch for overlooking the pristine water, and another deck closer to the lake to view the amazing sunsets. The house could easily accommodate large groups, from the bedrooms to the dining area. You can do as little or as much as you wanted: from relaxing all day to watersports and fishing. The owners were amazing, very accommodating, and made sure that your vacation was comfortable and enjoyable. This was the perfect lake house!!!!!

Amazing spot on the lake

  • 5 of 5
The is a fantastic spot on the lake. The owners are very approachable and answered all of our questions. My family consisted of my husband and our teens and twenty four year old. They loved the swim out raft and the 'perch' (deck overlooking the lake). The house has so much charm and the beach area is perfect for small children as it goes out quite a ways at only about a foot deep. We also made use of the canoe and chiminea. It faces west so the sunsets are spectacular. If you are looking for a fabulous place to spend some time with your family, then this is the place. Wolfboro is nearby and is a very quaint town. Book it, you'll love it!

Restful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
After a difficult year I booked this property to bring my daughter and grandchildren from Ohio together for some time to relax and spend some quality time together. The cabin and lake were wonderful. My teenage grandsons loved the lake and my daughter and I loved the private little beach and the most incredible sunsets. We swam, played games, and enjoyed the porch. My favorite was a little deck that hangs over the lake. It was a great place to drink my morning coffee and just spend some quiet time reading or doing needle work. I recommend this "gem" for anybody interested in enjoying a beautiful lakefront experience and just being a family.

Perfect Lake Cabin in Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cabin for my family (my husband and I and our three children, ages 2-8) to get away from everything and we succeeded! The cabin was exactly what we were looking for, like we were stepping back in time. It has been lovingly cared for and we felt like a guest of friends at their family cottage. The location is so beautiful, right on the water with sunset views and a lovely sandy beach and great dock. We swam, played in the sand, paddle boarded, kayaked and fished. When it rained, we made a fire and played games. The only problem was that we only had one week...and not a month. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: So happy to have had you stay and play in our cabin. Although rain is not fun the entire time on vacation, it is nice to hear you found the games and lit a fire. There is nothing like sitting in the rocking chair my great grandfather sat in looking at the same fireplace he did. we would welcome you back anytime.

Quintessential lake cabin - with beautiful sunsets & property

Quintessential lake cabin - with beautiful sunsets & property
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had been looking for a truly historic, secluded lakefront retreat - we found it with this place. At over 100 years old, this is not your typical vacation rental - but you can see why the builder chose this site long ago when you see the sunsets, which are unbelievable. The kids loved the shallow beach, which was perfect for swimming and playing. We hope to return in the future!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased to share our beloved cabin with you. As one of the oldest cabins on the lake it is truly a step back in history and that is what our family has loved about it for so long. Even after 100 years of sunsets - as you mentioned - each and every one is different and amazing. We will never grow weary of sitting on the porch as the days ends watching the sun go down. We are so happy you had a great time, and hope to see you another summer!

Plenty of local hiking spots, Abenaki Fire Tower, Mount Major, Bald Nob, Red Hill, and you are also about 30 min. from Mt. Chocorua. There are tons antiques in the Lakes Region. Kayak jet ski and boat rentals can be found in Wolfeboro. The famous Mt. Washington offers day trips around Lake Winnipesaukee and lovely night time cruises that go right past (quite a ways away!) our cove.
