About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, two half baths, Sleeps 8

This charming cottage with whimsical decor has beautiful lake and mountain views. Lake Wentworth is a quiet 3000 acre lake known for its crystal clear water, sandy bottom and great fishing. The location is private, yet you are only three miles from Wolfeboro, 'The Oldest Summer Resort in America,' and Lake Winnipesaukee. Decorated with antiques and 'shabby chic' style furniture, it was featured in Yankee Magazine's May 2006 magazine. There is a newly renovated kitchen, sun room dining area, and beamed cathedral ceiling and fireplace in the upstairs living room. A large deck with 2 seating areas is close to the water's edge, as well as a new vaulted ceiling screened porch that connects with the master bedroom and kitchen. The new first floor has amazing lake views from every space, all at the edge of the water! A second family room with fireplace, game room, laundry room and two new baths provide lots of space to hang out separately or together! A private dock and swimming raft are steps from the house. The house has four private bedrooms and sleeps 8. In the fall, enjoy the lakefront patio with portable fire pit table, or the two indoor fireplaces. This is not your typical rental- it is perfect for a single family or several couples. PLEASE message me before renting- I will not accept any rental requests made directly on line without communicating with potential renters.

About Sabet Stroman

We bought this house in 2002, and each year we try to add something new to keep the house fresh. We have loved the process of renovating, and adding new surprises for our repeat guests to find when they arrive each year! We live in Richmond, VA and love our getaway time at the lake. The new renovation is amazing, and gives us lots more spaces to fill with the wonderful NH antique finds!

Sabet Stroman purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Sabet Stroman chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

We have all of the benefits of the "big lake" with out the crazy boat traffic you now find there. You might go an entire day with only a few boats passing by, and the occasional seaplane landing in front of the house! Our beautiful views, crystal clear water and proximity to Wolfeboro make it a perfect retreat!

Our best vacation rental, EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful, lovely week at 3 Sisters with our twenty something kids and their significant others. The house is beautiful, sparkling clean, and the most relaxing spot I have ever enjoyed. We kayaked, floated, sipped wine on the dock, ate way too much, and all promised each other that we would make this an annual family ritual. Sabet has thought of everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much... I now have quite a few regulars that come back each year. It is wonderful to get to know each family and watch the younger children in some grow up ( now that mine are almost all grown!) I love sharing it with people that appreciate it as much as my family does!

Amazing, just book it!

  • 5 of 5

This home is magical, no joke. From the moment we arrived it did NOT feel like a rental, it felt like a warm ,cozy, beautiful, love and light filled home. We have rented countless homes and never had an owner as thoughtful and welcoming as Sabet. It is obvious that she not only cares and loves this home, but she genuinely wants to ensure an outstanding guest experience. Every details is thought of to ensure a wonderful stay. The decor in the home is functional, stylish and comfortable. Everything looked very Pottery Barn mixed with custom cottage chic, vintage touches. The Lake is serene, the fall colors were breathtaking and the home is so wonderful we were happy to spend most of our time there. We kayaked, sat by the fire pit, made delish meals, antiqued and relaxed. Each room in the home has character and plenty of space. The downstairs is a walk out with plenty of light, a large TV, wood burning fireplace and comfy furnishings. Its clear all the previous renters have given the home the respect and care it deserves because everything was in great condition. The downtown is close and offers several dining options and cute shops. This felt less like a rental and more like a "home swap". I am a tough crowd and I HIGHLY recommend this place. Would give it six stars if I could! Thank you Sabet for the lovely stay as well as all your thoughtfulness that made it so welcoming.

The pictures do not lie!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home with plenty of space! Lots of room to spread out and still a cozy warm feeling. Modern kitchen fully equipped, cable TV for the kids along with Wifi meant the adults could enjoy the rocking chairs on the deck with a wonderful sunset & bottle of wine! We cannot wait to go back....thank you Sabet!

The Property was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

To say that this home is charming would be an understatement. From the minute we pulled into the driveway, we were thrilled with the house, the view, and especially the Treats that Sabet left for us. Knowing that the weekend was birthday gift for my husband, she included Birthday hats, plates, napkins and candles. Also, a bottle of our favorite wine and a packed full /Farm bought Apple Pie. The kitchen was wonderful to work in. Having a complete view of the lake from all windows was just perfect. Lake Wentworth is a gem- close to Winnipesaukee, but without crowds. The home is right in Wolfeboro, so it took us only mins. to get in to the center. If you know Wolfeboro you know how special that is. Sabet left us lists of favorite restaurants, and shared little hints about the house to help us navigate. Each room was great- Family room was roomy enough for all 7 of us to gather. But, there were rooms downstairs to find some time for quiet to read or work, or catch the Pat's game on a rainy day. Beds were very comfortable. The house was immaculate. I just can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. We had two children with us. One is 4 and one is 2, we did move a few items that looked tempting, but the house was very cozy, warm and inviting for each one of us. None of us wanted to leave- that says it all. We cooked in most nights, but did grab lunch at Nolan's Brick Oven Bistro with the kids, and it was just delicious. The Sandwiches were made with Homemade bread and rolls. The waitresses could not have been more friendly. Low key, and fun lunch. We will remember our Columbus day weekend 2016 for a very long time with fond memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I love sharing the house with families, especially when you have a birthday to share! I was glad that I was in for a few days before you so that I could leave a few surprises! I appreciated the baby proofing too because I do have lots of vintage things around that would be tempting as a plaything. Thanks for staying at with us!

Wonderful home on lake Wentworth in Wolfeboro!

  • 5 of 5

Sabet, the owner of this home, is a wonderful hostess! She left us a perfect arrival basket with ingredients to make a late dinner after a long day of travel, as well as a delicious blueberry pie in the freezer from a local baker. The home is charmingly decorated, clean, well-appointed, and sits on a stunning lake with beautiful fall foliage! We happened to hit some cold weather, but Sabet had left us firewood to huddle around the lovely fireplace and stay warm in the evening.

Our son who is at Brewster Academy was able to spend a couple of days in a real home vs a hotel, which was a great way to enjoy being together! We explored the area, hiked, saw the beautiful fall colors, and even made some home-cooked meals and cookies!

We hope to return on another visit! What a great place to spend time in the lake region!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments! This year the foliage was beautiful, and the foliage season really seems to be extending into late October. I was there the last week of October and had quite a show even then. I'm always happy to share a "home away from home" for some of our Brewster families! Good luck to your son- especially during his first winter in New Hampshire!

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

I don't know how to describe this special place other than perfection. It is so light and bright and homey, we immediately felt as if we belonged there. It is beautifully decorated and everywhere you look you see something thoughtfully chosen and placed. We were greeted with fresh flowers in several places as well as a lovely bottle of wine, crackers and a loaf of wonderful blueberry bread. The cottage is equipped with everything you need - linens, towels and even some pantry items. The views from the screened in porch, the deck and the windows from all rooms lakeside are gorgeous; sunsets breath-taking. Lazy afternoons spent reading on the daybed on the porch after a good swim, glass of wine nearby or a board game on the well worn picnic table after paddling around the lake in the kayak made for a great vacation. The owner is a wonderful lady and was very attentive from afar - there was only one thing that required attention while we were there and it was attended to immediately. We also enjoyed the short drive into town for breakfast at the Downtown Grille.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your week! I'm so glad you used the kayaks- since the lake does not have a marina we have far fewer motor boats than the "big lake" and I always feel safe kayaking across to the conservation island or quietly along the shore. Getting on the lake is a different experience than seeing it from the shore. I'm so glad you had a great week!

Nearest Airport
60 Miles

Car: necessary

This is a great place to relax - but if you want to stay busy there's plenty to do - antiquing, charming shops and restaurants abound; the White Mountains and the coast of Maine are 45 minutes away; or visit all the tourist attractions in Conway. There are 4 golf courses nearby, and trails for hiking and biking. Wolfeboro also does a great job of constantly offering craft fairs, antique boat shows, art shows, etc over the weekends to provide additional activities.

Other Activities: outlet shopping, boat rides on Mt. Washington
