Novella Cottage at Newfound Lake, Sandy Beach
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Nice cabin, but very close to busy road

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a weekend at the cottage, having heard that Newfound Lake had beautifully clear water. We were looking for a quiet lakeside getaway to relax and do some kayaking. Steve was very responsive to my emails and was able to clarify the process of paying by check which I had never done before when using VRBO or Airbnb. We didn't need any assistance while we were at the cabin, but when Steve greeted us, he made it clear we could contact him if we needed anything and was very welcoming.

The cabin has rustic charm but as other have said has been updated to have modern conveniences. The big screened in porch was a very nice touche and we spent a good amount of time out there. The landscaping is very nicely maintained and it was great having such easy access to the beach a short walk away.

The downside is that the cabin is only about 50 ft from Rt. 3A which is a very busy road with lots of truck traffic. The road noise is nearly constant except for late at night and very early in the morning. Since we were trying to get away from the noise of the city, it was pretty disappointing to so much constant traffic noise. This might not bother everyone, but it did put a damper on the experience for us.

The only other issue I would note is that the mattress in the larger bedroom seems overdue to be replaced. It had large dents in it from people's sleeping locations and was very soft and worn out feeling. We opted to sleep in the smaller bedroom which had a very firm mattress. Obviously, this is an easy issue to fix.

This is our sixth year staying at Novella cottage. It can't be beat! My husband and I stay one week every year (wish it was longer) for our anniversary and just to have some time away together without the hassle of life. It is so relaxing.

It has everything you need and has that "awesome cabiny Newfound lake feel" but at the same time having all the modern necessities. Screened in porch is one of our favorites!

The owners are great and willing to help you enjoy your stay however they can. The beautiful beach is a stones throw away.

Although it is off a main road, once you get into the cabin and settled, you feel like you're you are in your own little piece of paradise.

Best Newfound Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th summer renting small family cottages on Newfound and we have found a gem. The charm of a 1940s lakeside cottage without all the quirks. The owners updated the cottage about ten years ago, including insulation, foundation, and lots of beautiful touches inside (track lighting, full W/D, up-to-date kitchen amenities like dishwasher, fridge, stove - all full size). The result is a cottage with the feel of the quaint cottages of yesteryear, but with the added luxuries of modern living. The large grassy yard is wonderful for the kids and the sandy beach cannot be beat. ps: What amazing sunsets!

Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I rented the cottage for 2 weeks in July, and we were very happy with our vacation rental this year! The cottage was really nice, it had just about everything we needed from kitchen utensils (including a dishwasher that worked!), a washer dryer, A/C, and internet access when we weren't at the beach. The owner was really nice and very helpful when we had questions (or when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the cottage ^_^ ). The best part of this place was the HUGH screened in porch! It was beautiful and really great to sit out there and eat our meals or just relaxing with a book while listening to the sounds of Newfound Lake.

I'd definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a really nice place while vacationing!

Newfound Cottage is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at the cottage! Unsure about what we would actually find despite the adorable pix online, we were so pleasantly surprised to find it exactly as it was photographed.

The cottage was clean and updated and just gorgeous! It still has that "rustic cottage" feel, but with all the comforts of home--A/C, cable TV, dishwasher, washer/dryer--with a huge screenporch overlooking the big yard where the kids played.

The lake is only about 100 yards from the cottage, a short walk. There is a private beach area with soft beach sand. We're hoping to become "regulars" at Newfound Cottage!
