Waterfront home was built on one of the premier lots in Alton Bay around 1902 and has been owned by the same family since 1918.
The house has been modernized, but it retains the old cottage feel. It has a screened in porch facing the water on the west side of Alton Bay which affords excellent views of Lake Winnipesaukee and plentiful morning sun.
The private driveway places this house over 700 feet from the highway. There is adequate parking next to the house on the same level as the main floor, and is accessed by a single six inch step.
On the main (first floor) there is a bedroom with two twin beds. The full bath is located on the first floor. There are three bedrooms on the second floor with one queen and two double beds, and a half bath.
The house is fully furnished. The kitchen is fully equiped with new appliances, dishes, silverware and settings for 8 persons. Renters must provide their own bed linens and towels.
The beach is located about 40 feet from the house via a concrete and stone stair way. (Vertical distance is about 20 feet.)
The boathouse has two outside docks available to the tenant which will accommodate up to 30 ft. boats. The sandy beach opens onto a shallow sand bar which extends for 100 feet into the lake with a depth of about 4 feet. This is an excellent and safe place for young children.

I am a Corporate Educator from the Boston Area and I inherited this now fifth generation family property from my father when he passed in October 2013 down here in MA. In an attempt to keep the property in the family I intend to continue renting it in the summers to pay the bills and fund improvements to the property.
This is the cleanest water anywhere, and when My Great, Great Grandfather bought it in 1918 with a house that was already 16 years old, it had the best location with a great sandy beach.
The accommodations are complete, with excellent views, lake access and modern appliances to make your stay comfortable.
