Several Comments in our guest book:" We 6 diverse woman enjoyed your beautiful warm home! We only have 'one' complaint - we have to leave!!"
"We walked in this house and were in awe of how beautiful and big it was. Pictures just don't do it justice. . . . what a relaxing vacation".
"Finally the lake has frozen over. . . . we found the trails at Pisgah Park which was a great way to enjoy a family expedition. . . . thanks for sharing your house"
This home is also our summer residence which we choose to rent out a few weeks each summer while we travel and much of the fall/winter. Subsequently the home has all the amenities you will need. We are both retired now and winter in Florida.
Mary Barstow purchased this house in 1983
If you are looking for a quiet, remote location for you family to enjoy swimming, boating or fishing or just relaxing this is a great spot. Plenty of hiking trails in the area too. The fall foliage is spectacular right from your deck.
Idyllic setting. Watched the moon rise over the lake while sitting on the deck outside our bedroom each night. Left the deck door open nightly so we would be awakened by early dawn to watch the mist rising on the lake followed by the sunrise. The house is comfortable and spacious with no "roughing it" required. Active lake in the daytime with courteous boaters and lots of fun for everyone. Quiet and peaceful at night. Heavenly!
My family and I stayed here last summer and it was the perfect vacation getaway. As soon as we walked in, were were blown away by how spacious the home is. Three floors of living space, plus incredible wrap around decks. Everything was very clean, and decor is warm and welcoming.
The sandy beach is ideal. No need to pack up the car to head to the lake - just walk out the back steps! We relaxed on the dock and kayaked around the lake using the owners' boats. Our toddler loved running in and out of the water - very family friendly house.
We also appreciated the tvs and wifi but spent most of our time lounging in the hammock or in the GORGEOUS screened in porch.
The owners were wonderful. Made the rental process so easy and were available via phone during our stay for random questions.
Can't wait to head back this summer! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
I wish we could make this a regular vacation spot. We were in New Hampshire for our son's wedding and this was the perfect place for us and our extended family to gather. The house has LOTS of space. The great room with kitchen, fireplace and views is fabulous. Our sons and their cousins loved the lake and all the activities available.
Summer: canoe, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking. Winter: ice skating, ice fishing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowmobile trails.
