It’s Time to Plan your NH LAKEFRONT Vacation!
Your vacation destination includes your choice of 5 bedroom home to easily accommodate you and your friends! The 125 acre Harvey Lake boasts some of the best fishing and water activities around. Of course, the home includes a fully equipped kitchen, linens and baths. On the property you’ll have access to a sandy beach and a boat launch is just a short drive around the corner. The 5 bedroom home offers what you would expect in a 200 year old historic building, including the rustic feel of an antique home with its’ hand hewn beams.
You will find plenty to do including visiting arts and crafts shops and New Hampshire’s famous “Antique Alley”. This home is located in the center of what ENDLESS VACATION MAGAZINE recently featured on their cover as one of the 5 GREAT DRIVES IN AMERICA. (The others are located in Washington, Hawaii, New Mexico and Missouri). Northwood is central to many of the New Hampshire activities you want including the White Mountains, Lakes Region and the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll want to finish your day at some of the greatest restaurants around, including those in either Portsmouth or Concord!
Whether it’s taking a hike, visiting the factory outlets of Tilton or just watching the water from your front porch, you’ll have a great time in and around the Northwood area.

About Nancy Carver
We purchased this property a couple of years ago with the intent of using it as both a retreat for ourselves and something that we could share with others. We both work full-time jobs (Lee is a pharmacist, Nancy works for the postal service), and spend our free time in Northwood. This lake property allows us a release from the day to day activities. We find that as soon as we arrive, our excitement builds about the next boat ride, swim in the beach, or cookout. We've enjoyed many gathering with old friends and new and find Harvey Lake to be the best place anywhere to make our new memories!
Nancy Carver purchased this House in 2007
Why Nancy Carver chose Northwood
We chose Harvey Lake because of it's central location to the Mountains, Lakes Region, Portsmouth and Concord. You can't find a nicer location if you want to take advantage of all that New Hampshire has to offer. Our home is located in the center of 'Antique Alley'. New Hampshire is rich with history, so having a chance to take a look at many of the items used at any of the 100+ shops is a lot of fun to us. Perhaps the most important reason we chose this property was the size of the lake. Harvey Lake is just 125 acres. This is large enough to use a powerboat, yet small enough to feel comfortable using a kayak or canoe. The larger lakes often have large amounts of boating traffic. In the years we've had the property, it's rare to see more than 3 boats on the lake at a time. It's absolutely fantastic!
What makes this House unique
Harvey Lake is located nearly center between the ocean (Portsmouth), the State Capital (Concord) and the largest lake in the state (Winnipesaukee). On the property you can have a campfire, go boating, fishing, swimming or just relaxing in the sun! Nearby you'll find great hiking and areas for the family picnic lunch. Later in the day, take a short trip to buy lobsters or visit many of the fine resteraunts.

A lovely summer weekend on the lake
Nancy and Lee were wonderful hosts to our large group. They offered to check us in early, gave us helpful information upon our arrival, and were kind and welcoming throughout the entire weekend. The property is beautiful - the main house is old but well-kept and clean. It is perfect for a large group of friends or big family looking for a simple place on a lake for a perfect summer weekend. Bonus is it's pet-friendly! There are plenty of grills on the property, fire pits for bonfires, and kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats to explore the lake and surrounding islands. There are also lots of places to eat and even a brewery nearby. All in all, we had a great time thanks to our hosts, Nancy and Lee!
Thank you for the fantastic review! Our goal is to provide a comfortable place to stay and create some great memories for our guests. We are happy you stayed with us and hope you will return! Thanks again, Nancy and Lee Carver
Entire Family Vacation
This is the 4th year that our entire family of 14 people has stayed at this house, This year we also had 2 dogs with us. Our family loves this house. It is large enough for all of us to get together. It has enough space so the teenagers and older children can gather in one area and a separate space for the adults and younger children in another. All ages love swimming in the lake, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and smores around the fire at night. Nancy and Lee could not be nicer. We enjoy seeing the improvements they make from summer to summer. Wi-Fi and a new patio were added this summer. Cannot wait until next year!
Thank you for saying such nice things. Nancy and I absolutely love this property and are privileged to be able to share it with people like yourselves. We know that you have many vacation choices and are pleased you choose us each year. It's your vacation. We want it to be the best that it can be! Thank you again. Nancy and Lee
We stayed at the house fo...
We stayed at the house for 10 days and had a great time. We are from Florida and we have family in the Concord, NH, area. The location worked out great. The owners and the manager will bend over backwards to accomodate you. During our stay we were experiencing a heatwave. The owners and manager jumped into action and brought additional a/c units to relieve the heat. They are working hard on the house. Keep in mind the house is over 207 years old. When we were leaving the manager was working on repainting or siding the outside of the home. This will really spruce up the house. We will definitely be back and will stay longer this time. My name is Bob Carr and my telephone number is 850-830-9870 if you need additional information.
