The best thing about this beautiful house hands down is you feel very private but in 5 minutes you can walk to town and get an ice cream. It really is an ideal spot on an ideal lake. The lake is quiet but big enough to explore for hours.
What is great about this place is that when people think of a Maine house this usually fits the bill. It is comfortable, not too fancy but all the amenities. Campy to a degree but great layout. The house itself has a great energy and many laughs and reunions, new friendships have come through this house. Whether it is sitting by the fire pit at the edge of the lake roasting marshmallows or having a crew for dinner while listening to the loons this is really the spot :)

I live in Mass, mother of two kids. Growing up we rented a house in Franconia, NH and it was my fondest memories so when my kids came along I wanted to share that same experience with them. I have renters that have been renting the same weeks for the 12 years I have owned the house and it makes me feel good that they are creating their own memories at the lake house too.
The house has great bones and when it was built in 1930 the craftmanship was at its peak. It to me is the epitome of a Maine camp. I feel in love with the layout and location on the spot. Ironically, everyone who visits the house all feel the house has such a good feel to it. There have been many laughs for many renters in the house
Boathouse, rare to find in Maine
Walk to town but a very private feel
