About Robert Heinrich

I am a caretaker in charge of a very special home.

Robert Heinrich purchased this castle in 1995

Why Robert Heinrich chose Gilford

This property is a well kept secret. The home was built in 1897 as a grand victorian cottage by AV Lincoln, the largest property owner in Charlestown,MA which was at the time the epicenter of Boston. Mr. Lincoln was the real-estate consultant for the railroad, which was booming at the time. Mr lincoln sighted the home perfectly in sech a way that it always is sunlit with the undisputed best view of Winnipesaukee and the Ossipee mountains anywhere.

What makes this castle unique

Every day is beautiful from The Lincoln Cottage, rain or shine. Watching a weather event from here is alost as good as a sunny day. Everything you need for a home away from home is here at the Lincoln Cottage.

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the house to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and their families. Plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was great for constant food preparation by someone. Lots of room to stand around and visit. I think the view is the highlight of the home. The waterfront area had plenty of chairs to visit or read. Robert was easy to work with and very accommodating.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just came home from an amazing 5 days at the Lincoln Cottage. First off, the owner/landlord was so accommodating and made sure we had everything ready for us upon arrival (we have a 1 year old and he was kind enough to find an awesome crib which my boy loved sleeping in and high chair) and even put out extra tables and chairs. He was so flexible and accommodating, he was a joy to work with. We did a lot of work planning for this trip and dealt with many owners prior to choosing this home. Robert was by far the best. The house is beautiful! Views are breathtaking! The game room on the top level is amazing and there was so much room for everyone to be comfortable. The kitchen ROCKS! I don't have anything but positives to say and I highly recommend this house. There are a lot of stairs which separate the levels but even with a 1 year old and my folks who are in their late 60s we were all fine. Definitely would rent again! Thank you Robert and the Lincoln Cottage for making our family vacation so memorable!
