MODERN LOG CABIN W SKYLIGHTS & STONE NESTLED IN THE WOODS ON A 2 LAKE CHAIN

New Durham Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms + loft, 2 full baths (1 w bidet), exercise room, sleeps 8-10

The cabin is located on a 2 lake chain nestled between forested hills and is a quiet refuge from the bustle of life. The structure is modern and features a skylight lit great room and loft and a big stone fireplace. The many windows and skylights ( 2 over beds upstairs) bring the outdoors “inside”. The 40 feet of front porch look out towards the lake peaking through the trees. Our dock is a few hundred yards down the hill where the kayaks and canoe beckon sunsets are spectacular, and is safe distance away for little ones safety. Boat or swim off the dock or take a sort stroll to our associations sandy “kid friendly“ swimming beach. Out back is the deck joined by the porch that wraps around 2/3 of the structure. The basement has an exercise room with a elliptical, ergometer rowing machine, some weights and a ceiling mounted VCR and collection of tapes.

The Lakes: The lakes are clean and the water warm and pleasant for swimming. Winnipesaukee is cold by comparison and many places marred by the sound and smell of outboards. (Fun when you are in them..;)

* Large floating Raft boat dock with 2 Kayaks and canoe provided. The dock is far enough from house to be kid safe, as our property extends across the road down to the shore. The lake is visible through the trees from the front porch.

* For lovers of a 'sandy beach', a couple minuets walk brings you to our private 'association beach'. It 's the prettiest point on the lakes and has a newly renovated sandy beach great for swimming and kids as it's gradual. The point is south facing and gets great sun. Bring the cooler and if you are ambitious the hammock as there are hooks for it. (Yes though the distance is short ... you can throw all the 'stuff' in the car as there is parking too.)

I was the general contractor, and design consultant. We and our friends did much of the interior work, plus a great carpenter/cabinet maker who make great custom built-in details make this post and beam cabin unique. This was created as our family retreat.

Bob Reardon purchased this cabin in 1990

The cabin was built as a 4 season family get-away, for fun and friends. It is nestled in the woods with the lake on one side and bordering the back of a large noncurrent use forest area that goes on for miles right off the back of the property. Skiing hiking canoeing kayaking swimming or just relaxing on the large porch or the hammock, refresh both the body and spirit.

The 5 skylights light up the interior with natural lighting that is even wonderful on cloudy overcast days. The natural light and custom stone work, combined with the skylights and cathedral ceiling and loft entertainment area give a very the place a special feeling.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful cabin, quiet, peaceful location, yet short drive to Mt. Major, great morning hike with incredible views. Sawyer's Dairy Bar, best Lobster Roll, Johnson's Dairy Bar, largest small ice cream I have ever seen. Water 3 minute walk away with canoe, and 2 kayaks. Beautiful sunsets and peaceful throughout the day, (listen to loons at night). Fire pit in the
woods. Spent week with 10 family members, celebrating Dad's/Grandpa's 90th Birthday. It was perfect for the occasion. Thank you for always being quick to respond and sharing your little piece of Heaven!!!

The cabin is situated near the end of a sleepy road leading to a 2 lake chain in New Durham, NH. Close enough to all the bustle of summer activity of the Lake Winnipesaukee region (8 miles) to enjoy all the summer activities – festivals, concerts, fairs… , but after a busy day is a peaceful refuge on a 2 lake chain abutting a large forested mountain area where you and your family can unwind. Our dock has 2 kayaks and a big Grumman canoe waiting to paddle, swim off the dock of take a sort stroll to our sandy ‘kid friendly “swimming beach.

Other Activities: Lounging in the Hammock or on the 40' front porch!!
