Why Chris Green chose The Bays

We purchased this property after owning a smaller lakefront cottage in Maine for 18 years. We searched for and looked at properties in four states on over 20 lakes before settling on this because of the unique and beautiful setting on the lake. It is close enough to a number of large NH ski areas to ski from. It is also within minutes to several beautiful mountain golf courses.

What makes this cottage unique

Pristine and beautiful lakefront setting with mountain views close to golf courses and ski areas. This property is in a child safe setting.
