Overview

Lake Winnipesaukee Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom cottage, kitchen, full bathroom, large screened in porch, sleeps 4

Our five housekeeping cottages are classic New Hampshire cabins, neatly kept, simple, no-frills yet possessing an old-fashioned charm that many refer to as 'spirit-renewing'. Colonial Pines sits on the edge of picturesque Center Harbor Bay.

PLEASE NOTE WE RENT BY THE WEEK ONLY DURING JULY AND AUGUST.

THE SPACE:

Cottage #3 is available to book year round. It is a two bedroom cottage and accommodates up to four guests. One bedroom has a queen size bed, bureau, and closet. The second bedroom has two twin beds, bureau and closet. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, and a drip coffee maker. All dishes, silverware and pots and pans are provided.

Food or meals are not provided. Local supermarket is less than a mile away.

The cottage has a large screened in porch with table and chairs for dining and relaxing. Hearthstone gas fireplace heats the cottage in the colder months. Cottage is winterized for maximum comfort.

Our location is in a quiet non-commercialized area, assuring our guests of privacy. The cottage has a view of the lake and surrounding woods. The cottages are spaced to insure privacy.

Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming. There are few locations on the 'big lake' that offer so much privacy without a long drive to the store and services. Restaurants and groceries are only 2 minutes by car or boat. Restaurants ranging from family fast food to gourmet meals are within a couple of miles.

GUEST ACCESS:

One hundred fifty feet of sandy swimming with gradual slope, two wharves - one with diving board, swim raft, stone fireplace by lake for cook-outs, outdoor shuffle-board court, badminton, and table tennis.

For our guests we offer complimentary use of two canoes.

We also offer KAYAK RENTALS.

There are many islands to explore by water. The harbor is protected on three sides which makes it ideal for canoeing and kayaking.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:

We live on the property and assist our guests with check-in, boat rentals, finding local attractions, and any other way we can. One of our reviewers says it best: 'Cindy and Gary are experienced hosts who know how to welcome guests and offer assistance, but also leave space for privacy. They are genuinely nice people, and we felt completely comfortable with them'.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

We are within walking distance to the quaint town of Center Harbor. There are wonderful little shops in town including Keepsake Quilting, a bookstore, a grocery store, ice cream stands, restaurants and even a gazebo for band concerts on Friday evenings.

Hiking, antiquing, golfing, outlet shopping are just a few of the many activities close by.

Close to the White Mountains and Gunstock Mountain Recreation area where you can enjoy many outdoor activities. There are lots of hiking trails for all abilities within a short drive.

GETTING AROUND:

Some guests bring bicycles.

A great family tradition is walking to town for ice cream on a hot summer night.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

Winter rentals available. Long term winter rentals considered.

Weekly rentals Friday to Friday during July & August.

2-3 night minimum other times of the year. Events and holiday weekends may require a longer minimum stay.

A deep well on the property assures great drinking water.

About Gary and Cindy Kunz

Our seven bedroom lodge was built in 1915 as a private home. Cottages were built later and became Lawrence Cottages. The Luce family purchased the resort in 1960 and we continue to strive to maintain comfort and peacefulness while balancing the historical significance of waterfront housekeeping cottages.

Gary and Cindy Kunz purchased this cottage in 1960

Why Gary and Cindy Kunz chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

A westerly exposure means sun all afternoon in our swimming area and beautiful sunsets!

Our customers (some have been returning for over 40 years now) feel there is something special about our beautiful location on this pristine lake.

What makes this cottage unique

A deep well on the property assures excellent drinking water.

Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing for all ages. Children love to catch fish in and around the boathouse and many improve their swimming skills during their stay.

Excellent place to relax for the whole family! Beautiful, peaceful, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation spot! All you need to relax and get away from stresses of life. This was our first vacation with all our children. We have 3 young kids, 8, 3 and 8 month old. This cozy cottage on the lake had everything we needed and more! I loved the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of the camp, with beautiful pine trees all around. My husband and son did a ton of fishing, we all got to swim and relax on the deck. The cottage had everything needed for cooking, so we didn't have to go out to eat, which was very convenient. The owners, Cindy and Gary, are very nice and knowledgable of the area and the attractions. They are very accommodating, friendly and always available to help. They are very respectful of the privacy of their guests and by no means overbearing with rules and regulations. We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to come back!

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable cabin with full kitchen and wifi and cable. We were looking for a place to relax and unwind, and this was it. Easy access to a waterfront great for swimming and kayaking and just hanging out. There were shops for food and fun, restaurants, antiques, mini-golf, and beach arcades all within easy driving distance. Cindy and Gary were great. We had a wonderful week.

A relaxing and beautiful place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

This place was every bit as advertised and then some! The beds were comfortable, the house was clean, and the kitchen had plenty of cookware and dishes. The grounds are breath-taking. Our young children loved the sandbox, the fish in the boathouse, the diving board, AND the owners, Gary and Cindy. Gary and Cindy went out of their way to play with our kids--our kids can't stop talking about Mr. Gary and the little vacation house by the lake. There is plenty to do here, it is within walking distance to stores and restaurants, and our only regret is that we had to leave. We would definite stay here again and recommend Colonial Pines Resort to couples, families, and just about anyone.
