Lake Winnisquam Cottage Rental Photos and Description
4 bedrooms sleeps 8 plus

Very private cabin with a mile of private waterfront and 60 acres of nature on lake Winnisquam, NH and only 1 1/2 hours from Boston. On the grounds of historic Butternut Farm the cabin comes with a canoe, great views of the lake and mountains, excellent fishing, swimming, wildlife, fire pit, gas grill and all conveniences. It can be combined with 1 or 2 other cabins for larger gatherings or reunions. Only minutes from shopping and restaurants it offers the experience of privacy and nature the way we remember it as kids. We like to say it is 'close to everything but far from anything'.

FAMILY REUNIONS: We can accommodate 25 + persons when all 3 cabins are rented. The Ephraim Cabin, pictured here, is the normal gathering point with plenty of seating for everyone. When all 3 cabins are taken by the same group it includes 3 beaches, 2 docks, many trails, 3 canoes and paddleboat, swim float etc. etc.

I'm a musician and I work with non-fiction publishers I also produce and host a Cambridge TV show. Though I maintain a home in Cambridge I spend most of my time in the Butternut Farm farmhouse in NH. One of my main goals has been to preserve the character of the Cove and to head off nearby threats of development etc. I love to share the Cove with others who enjoy it as much as I do.

A world away in your own private sanctuary!

My friends and family plan an annual trip to the Lakes region every year. I sorted through literally a hundred homeaway ads before deciding on this one. This was by far our best vacation yet and we will be returning for years to come. The cabin itself is quaint and charming and spacious enough for all our friends, family and dog! The trails are endless, the lake is beautiful and very private. The beach was a huge hit with our 4 year old and dog! The fishing was spectatcular and I myself caught 2 (which was my first time fishing ever).

When the weather was nice we had so much to do outdoors between the beach, paddle boating and canoeing. When it rained we went shopping at the nearby outlets and went to the nearby Weirs beach arcade for some pier family fun.
You will feel like you are a world away in your own private sanctuary, leaving was bittersweet!

And last but not least Stephen was a delight to meet and I can honestly say this would get a 6th star because of him!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

My family of 5 (+ 2 dogs) had a great time on the cove. It had everything we could ask for. The home was well equipped with all the necessities. The downstairs family room was great for the kids with a piano and foosball table. Outside shower overlooking the cove was awesome! We kayaked, swam, explored. Restaurants, antiquing, waterpark ~ all are nearby. We especially liked the privacy. It is truly the sweetest spot we have stayed at in New Hampshire. We have already booked again for next year. Thanks Steve! 5 stars!

My family & I stayed at this cottage & we loved it! We are die-hard campers, so we could truly appreciate the "cabin" feel of this house. It was well-stocked with just about everything you could need, including a grill! There are many stores right down the street. The private cove was our favorite part... my family really enjoyed the swimming & fishing in the lake. Plus the canoes & paddle boat were awesome. The only thing I would mention is that you are in the woods, so there are plenty of bugs. As well as we had an extremely hot week, so if that is forecasted for you, bring fans. The house has tons of windows, so that helps alot as well. The owner is really nice & easy to work with. We can not wait to go back!

Great Private Retreat

I stayed for a couple of days for a mini family reunion. As advertised, very private, yet close to everything! We enjoyed every minute stretching our legs exploring the nearby trails, canoeing and lots of swimming in our own private cove. It was special - we will be going back.

Weekend get-away

Rented this place last September and had a great time. Secluded enough to enjoy yourself but close to everything if you need to venture out. Views of the lake were amazing. Nice fire pit where you can sit around for hours into the night. Coming back again in a couple weeks and I can't wait. I highly recommend this if you are seeking out a nice quiet retreat where you can kick back and relax and have a wonderful time.
