About the property

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 8

Beautiful Adirondack style, year round 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, waterfront home on Crescent Lake in the 'Oldest Summer Resort in America.' One-acre lot with gently sloping lawn, 125 ft. of waterfront & crystal clear water, within walking distance of downtown Wolfeboro. Fantastic scenery complete with sandy beach area and dock for great swimming, fishing, boating, and pond skating in winter months. Main floor master suite includes custom tub and over sized shower with shared field-stone fireplace to great room. Open concept kitchen and great room includes new furniture and appliances, dining and peninsula area seating, and large screened porch. Second floor includes two bedrooms and full bathroom. Mahogany decking is 800 sq. ft. No Pets or Smokers! Washer/Dryer

Lake details - : Our cottage is located on Crescent Lake, a quiet lake big enough for any activity such as water skiing, fishing, swimming and boating. The lake may have only 1-2 other boats on it at any one time making for plenty of room. Canoeing, kayaking can be done safely and without constant wakes from motorboats screaming past. There are no 'cigarette boats' allowed! The lake is undiscovered and available. An evening row in the canoe or rowboat with a bottle of wine and a cigar is a real treat. So is the possibility of morning water skiing on super flat water with no one else to prevent your best moves. In contrast, is the huge Lake Winnipesaukee located within 5 minutes walking distance. It is crowded with lots of boats and lots of activity. The Mount Washington motor ship and the Winnipesaukee Belle both ply the waters of the entire lake. It is exciting and a nice place to visit, but most people love to rent a jet ski on the big lake and then end their day at our cottage.

Golf details - : Kingswood Golf Course is located right in Wolfeboro and is a private/public course with great views and solid golfing conditions. The public is welcome without any snobbery and is a friendly atmosphere. Several other courses in the area also provide great golf and are open to the public.

Lake Winnipesaukee Club is a very exclusive club located on the top of a nearby mountain. Ridgewood C.C. only 25 minutes by car.

About T.J. Palmer Please email only for inquiries

A local resident of Wolfeboro, NH for the past 27 years. My wife and I actually live right in the town where the cottage is located so we are available for ideas and taking care of any problems that might arise.

T.J. Palmer Please email only for inquiries purchased this cottage in 2005

Why T.J. Palmer Please email only for inquiries chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

We love Wolfeboro - what can we say. It is a throw-back town, in that it is the way 'life used to be.' A small New England village with a lot to do.

What makes this cottage unique

You get a recently built Lake house with all the amenities, on a quiet lake that is big enough to do anything you want but private enough to be able to hear the loons cry, in a town that is picturesque and has that village feel, and still have a ton to do because the big lake [Lake Winnipesaukee] is 3 minutes away if you like to dabble in more 'action' all only two hours from Boston and 1 hour from Portsmouth, NH.

The water in Crescent Lake is absolutely gorgeous; very clean, small sandy beach [rare for the lake] gradually extends into the water. There is no 'muck' as the lake bottom surrounding the beach and dock are annually raked free of leaves and debris. Very safe sloping water level is great for kids. The Lake is quiet and barely used as 1 or 2 boats is more rare than not a boat in sight. Swimming, fishing, canoeing, rowboating and kayaking are perfect! The house is only 3 years old and has all the linens, towels you need; also included paper towels, toilet tissue, kleenex, aluminum foil, etc.

Great Rental in Wolfeboro

  • 5 of 5

This rental property was past our expectations. It was a beautiful home and close to everything you wanted and needed. All the amenities were available (sheets, towels, and best yet, wood for the fireplace!) We were unable to utilize the lake activities since we rented in Dec, but the fireplace made it a very nice and relaxing weekend.

We will definitely return and are planning already.

Perfect Lakeside Property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week in June, and I honestly couldn't be happier. If you're looking for a lakeside rental, this is the place you want. It's right on crescent lake in NH, right next to Winnipesaukee, within walking distance to all of the amenities in Wolfeboro, and perfectly placed in a little cove on the lake. The water here is fantastic. It's warm, and crystal clear and gets sun pretty much all day long. The house is fabulous too. It's very clean, well maintained, and comes with towels and sheets, in addition to a gas grill with propane already provided. The owners of this property are extremely helpful, and very responsive. Rent this place and you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: This time in June can be the best of both worlds - great weather and peaceful quiet on the Lake! We are never disappointed in our thoughtful renters, either! Thank you.

We love this house

  • 5 of 5

This property has so much going for it - beautiful house completely outfitted with everything you can think of, nice beach, canoe and dock on beautiful quiet lake and within walking distance of downtown Wolfeboro. The owner is very responsive and lives nearby. Towels and linens are provided which is rare in rental houses. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The end of the road is located very near the "rail trail" which is a long, well-kept trail along the lakes for biking, running and walking. Wolfeboro is a very pretty town with lots of restaurants and shops. Make sure to pick up some goodies at the Yum Yum shop. It is also close to Castle in the Clouds which is well worth checking out. In summary, you won't be sorry if you rent this house.

Wolfboro NH Great spot hoping to return in 2010

  • 5 of 5

As first time vacationer's at “income properties” We can assure all who read this that this house is truly beautiful over looking a lake and very secluded– it’s someone’s actual home, and you are at home on the lake from the minute you arrive.

My husband and I along with another couple spent 5 wonderful days at this home, to go to a Nascar race in Loudon. It was a perfect vacation. The house is on a beautiful quiet lake, we were in the woods, and we truly were “away from it all,but the nice thing was if you wanted to be around people it was only a 15 min walk to the village of Wolfboro or just minutes by vehicle .” At night, from under the stars, we heard the loons through the open windows. My husband, who has problems sleeping, well, he slept soundly through the night every night.

In the mornings we were up early to enjoy our coffee and watch the mist burn off the lake along with the ducks swimming about. During one day of our holiday we sat on the deck reading and catching up with what has been going on in each of lives, which is something we never seem to have time for when at home in Ontario and looking out over the lake at the stunning fall foliage which was just starting. At dinnertime, we thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the fully equipped kitchen. The furniture is comfortable and the décor is thoroughly charming, and the house is well designed to accommodate a larger group of vacationers, but we found it just great for the 4 of us. The house was clean, well maintained and the owner was very helpful with any questions we had before we left Ontario. I would most definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to "get away from it all."

This house is so relaxing - you’ll never want to leave.
