About the property

3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Lakefront cottage built with classic 'camp' wood finish. This 1990's cottage has wide pine floors and 'pickwick' wood walls with all the comforts of home. There is a 100' sandy beach on Broad Bay of Ossipee Lake with great views of the White Mountains. There is a wood dock for your boat, a swim raft, beach toys, 2 kayaks and several bicycles for your enjoyment. Lower level game area with bumper pool, ping pong, table hockey and darts. The main level has a 42' HDTV with internet access and wifi. The second floor bedrooms are air-conditioned. We rent our camp from Friday at 6:00 PM to Friday at noon. Most of our renters come from New England. By doing it this way, everyone has one complete weekend at the camp which makes it better for having visitors come up on the weekend.

About Brian White

We built this family camp in 1994. The camp was designed to have the look of a classic mid-1900's camp with the Pickwick pine walls and wide pine floors but also to have the modern amenities. We have a 42' HDTV in the living area along with internet and wifi. There is a full bath and a 1/2 bath along with a washer and a dryer. The second floor bedrooms are air-conditioned so sleeping on a hot summer night in the upstairs is very comfortable. The main level is not air-conditioned but with an open concept and great ventilation, none is ever needed. We mainly use this camp as a family summer camp and we make it available for rent for just a couple of prime summer weeks to off-set the property taxes.

Why Brian White chose The Bays

This property is unique as it sits in a small cove with a sandy beach and nice mountain views. There is one small two-bedroom camp to one side of us and the camp on the other side of us has not been occupied for many years. This property is largely wooded. You can boat right from the dock to the open water of Broad Bay and Ossipee Lake or you can take a right and head through the channel and access Leavitt Bay and Berry Bay to the east.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from staying here. Waterfront with private beach was fantastic. The owner allows for use of 2 kayaks which was wonderful for exploring the bays. A lot of steps to make it down to the house but that helps make it more private. Not for the wheelchair bound or those on crutches/walkers.

Has a Boat dock and a swimming dock. The boat dock easily fit a 17' boat. Has homey feel rather than upscale. Has wood floors, which was great for kids, as it made for easier cleanup with sandy feet. Highly recommend for the price. Great value!

Wonderful rustic home on a lake

  • 4 of 5

This is just a sweet home right on a lake. We rented this to get our entire family together for a week on a lake. We slept 6 adults and 4 kids in this home with no issues. There is a small beach (one of the only ones on the lake) the kids loved it. There is a dock for a boat. You can only kayak in early mornings and late afternoon as there are many motor boats on this lake (more so on weekends). This place is about 20 miles from North Conway, NH. There is plenty to do within that 20 miles. Please keep in mind this is a somewhat rustic home as such it is not the Hilton but very serviceable. One more item, people renting this home must be able to climb stairs not a problem for us but if you have trouble in anyway with stairs this is not the place for you. This was one of the best vacations we as a family have ever had. I recommend this home to families with kids 5 and above, you will have a blast.... bring your boat its great. I would recommend this home to my friends also.
