About the property

2 bedrooms with queen beds, Loft with 2 twin beds, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

Listen to the loons at our ultra private, newly renovated waterfront Post & Beam home located in a small waterfront community in Tuftonboro NH. Only 10 mins to Wolfeboro, our home features pine floors, a newly renovated kitchen with stainless appliances/dishwasher, granite countertops, Franke sink, Parma faucet and breakfast bar, new full bath, large living room with high ceiling and exposed beams, deck overlooking water, fireplace, two bedrooms with queen beds and a large loft with 2 twin beds, all new beds and mattresses. We have a new 12x32 screened-in porch. High speed wireless internet, unlimited long distance phone in the U.S., HD cable tv, 32' HD flat panel TV w/dolby 5.1 surround sound, DVD/CD and iPod connection. We have a high efficiency washer/dryer and ping pong table in basement. Located on a quiet lake with super clean water (oligotrophic), 160' of pristine & private waterfront with over 15 ft depth of visibility. Fully furnished. No pets. Minimum 1 week rental.

About Camp Beech: Camp Beech, our waterfront home is a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This is our vacation house. A neighbor best described the experience by saying 'time moves slowly on Lower Beach Pond'. The lake is very quiet, filled with wildlife (rainbow trout, brown trout, small and large mouth bass for fishing and a loon family we see daily). We even saw a moose swimming last year! Our home is great for relaxation, reading a book on the deck, lying in the sun or hammock, water sports or visiting North Conway's outlets for some retail therapy (35 mins away) and the town of Wolfeboro for fine dining or shopping (10 mins away). In addition to our shoreline property, there are 2 Hidden Valley Association beaches you will have access to which are great for family days, building sand castles and swimming, both are a few minutes walking distance. Bring your racket because there are tennis courts in the association. We hope you enjoy your stay and go home very relaxed!

About the Lake: Our home is located in a small, private community in Tuftonboro NH called Hidden Valley. Our vacation home is located on Lower Beach Pond which is a small Oligotrophic lake with a sandy bottom. Wikipedia defines these lakes 'to have low algal production and often have very clear waters, with high drinking-water quality.' There is a maximum of 10 horsepower boats on the lake. More common, however, to the water are canoes, sail boats, fisherman, and swimmers. Paddling around on surfboards is our preferred method of water transportation. What is yours? Swimming across the lake is also a fantastic way to start your day! We have a large floating cedar raft roughly 35-40ft from shore for relaxing and lying in the sun. Another attraction is Camp William Lawrence, a boys camp that my husband attended, see their website below. If the wind is just right, you can barely make out revelry at 7:30 AM signaling the beginning of another wonderful day for the campers and for you at Camp Beech

Special Referral Offer: If you have visited Camp Beach or are visiting this site and believe someone you know would like to rent our home, please email Carl. If your friends stay at our house during the off season, we will be happy to send you a $100 referral fee after their stay. Please make sure whoever is staying with us drops your name so we can thank you appropriately after their stay.

People who are often are able to stay with us during the off peak season would be those without school aged children and retirees. The nice thing about the off season, such as the beginning of June, or Mid September through October, is that many of the tourists have left, the lake is warm, the weather if often breath taking, and you'll be lucky to see ANYONE on the lake. It's just that quiet and private!

So if you fall into the category of being able to rent in the off season, take advantage of even greater peace and quiet.

Our kitchen is also newly renovated and we decided to add luxuries that are not often found in a typical rental at our price point. As mentioned earlier, we have granite countertops, new stainless appliances and plenty of cooking utensils. Our breakfast bar has 3 stools for casual dining. We have a dining area that can seat 4 comfortably for a nice candlelight meal. We also recommend using our dining table on the deck to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Our living area features a comfortable large couch with a reclining chair and some bean bags. We have an entertainment center with surround sound speakers. Our property is secluded from other homes offering lots of privacy. We have trees on both sides of the house down to the water and our shore front property is cleared with private swimming. There are 2 granite rock steps to the water and a sandy start for swimming - we recommend swimming to the rock across the lake. We have a small dock/mooring to tie a canoe or small sailboat.

Perfect getaway cottage on a quiet,beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our second year there on Lower Beech Pond - it's an absolutely wonderful find. Carl and Erika are thoughtful and responsive owners, and their cottage reflects their commitment to making each visit special. Beautifully and tastefully furnished with a great little kitchen, outdoor porch dining, full tech capability (for anybody unable to disconnect!), a huge deck overlooking the lake, a small private beach, and a perfect location outside Wolfeboro and near Lake Winnipesaukee. Couldn't be a nicer place to unwind and explore the region.

Owner's Response: Wow! That is very nice for you to say that, and it means a lot to us. We do try hard to improve the experience every year. The house is a place we enjoy ourselves from time to time, so part of our mission is self serving. We want it a certain way just as our clients do. That said, we have been absolutely blessed with such caring and fun clients. You wouldn't believe how lucky we have been. Thank you so much for staying with us 2 years in a row! Were does the time go?! On topic, we just met with our builder and are moving forward with a new bathroom. While the room itself is a bit on the small side, we will now have a walk in tile shower with glass door, upgraded sink/loo and ventilation unit. We also just finished doing some tree pruning on the water front last weekend that really has changed the lake aesthetic from the house. Still very private, but far better site lines. Huge thank you for your review and for being such amazing clients! Carl and Erika

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Everything went better than planed. Carl was very helpful with anything we needed. Their lake house is perfect for a great getaway. You are also close to many small towns as well as the castle in the clouds. Carl's house is very well equipped and maintained for what ever you may need. Thanks for a great trip. Greg

Wonderful Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views of a tranquil and clean lake made for a great week. House had everything needed and is in a perfect location to get to all the local activities or just hang around by the lake and recharge. Great times spent with coffee out on the deck in the morning and with drinks in the evening. Lake was perfect size with calm waters for using paddleboards we rented locally. No jet skis or motorboats to contend with which added to the peace and quiet. While we enjoyed great weather, the screened in porch would be perfect for relaxing with a book on a rainy day. Communication with Carl was top notch both before and after our stay. Looking forward to another week next year at Camp Beech.

Beautiful View, Tranquil Setting, Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this lovely home situated right on Lower Beech Pond. The homeowners have recently updated many features of the house. It was perfectly clean and stocked with every amenity! Carl and Erika were fantastic at every turn, offering suggestions for hiking, etc.

The house has a lovely view of the pond with a small dock and raft. The pond is crystal clear and great for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. Don't miss out on this one!

Beautiful waterfront cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay in this cabin! The photos didn't do it justice for how great it was! The kitchen was fully furnished, making meals easy. We ended up using the other beaches mainly, but that was because of the docks they had to jump off of and the other children in the area that our kids met. The owners were FANTASTIC! Super responsive to any questions we had. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking in the area!

We feel that we do not have a lot of competition at our price point. For those willing to spend $3000 a week, that will buy you a different home. For those who do not want to spend at that level, you will find out home to be clean and updated. Our home is on one of the cleanest bodies of water in the lakes region, and there is very limited boat traffic making for a relaxing and quiet environment
