Our lake home looks onto beautiful and clean Newfound Lake. The private shared access beach is 300 yards away (it is a bit rocky at the water entrance, so water shoes are suggested). Wellington State Park and beach is 1/4 mile away, with a free public boat launch. The house sits on a private lot and the large deck has water views. Off-street parking for 4 cars. New insulation and siding in fall 2011. The house has pergo flooring throughout the first floor, modern full size appliances and a gas cooking stove. Many recent furniture upgrades too! The living area is open and spacious as are the bedrooms. The master bedroom on the first floor has a queen bed and a washer and dryer. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has a double and two twin beds. Hiking and snowmobile trails are within walking distance. Walk to Newfound Winery for free tasting (open May to Oct.). Ice fishing and skating on the lake as well! Restaurants and stores nearby. Beautiful area, lots to do any time of year!
Summer: Swim in one of the cleanest lakes in the world and the deepest in New Hampshire. Bring your canoe, motor boat or sailboat and enjoy Newfound Lake which is 2 miles wide and 7 miles long. Plenty of other things to do locally - hike, bike, view falls, nature reserves etc.
Winter: Ski/Snowboard at Ragged Mountain - 20 minutes away or Tenney Mountain - 15 minutes away. Waterville Valley, Loon or Sunapee are 45 minutes away. Snowmobile trails nearby. Snowshoe, ice fish or ice skate too!
Fall: Take in the beautiful scenery around the lake. Nearby hike provides spectacular views! Nice scenic drives to take in all the foliage. If you've never visited NH this time of year, you won't be disappointed with the array of colors!
Heather grew up in nearby Plymouth, NH and spent a lot of time at Newfound Lake as a child. Jay is from Massachusetts, but vacationed in the New Hampshire lakes region with his family every summer. We both love the area and wanted to purchase a property where we could share the beautiful area with our two daughters and extended family.
Heather or Jay McGaffigan purchased this chalet in 2008
We toured several other houses for sale around Newfound and fell in love with the open spaciousness of this chalet. We knew it would be a great house to entertain friends and family, as well as a great rental property. We liked the location near Wellington State Park and hiking trails and the closeness of the shared beach.
The house is fairly private and you do not hear the neighbors. The yard is big enough for our girls and friends to run around. There is ample parking for 4 cars in the driveway. The large deck is a great place to hang out and dine on in the summer months. The interior has modern appliances, countertops and flooring, which bring warmth to the house.
The property is in a great location, easy to find - we didn't arrive until 7pm in the dark but the detailed instructions from the owners were really helpful. The owner was very easy to deal with, answering queries quickly and with lots of information.
The house is lovely, upstairs are two rooms which we used for the children, a bedroom each separated by a wooden door. These rooms are fairly spacious, housing each a large bed and the second room has two extra singles also. Plenty of room for storage in wardrobes and drawer units. The master bedroom is downstairs, just opposite the bathroom. The lounge again is very spacious and lovely big tv, comfy sofas as well as lots of videos supplied for cosy nights in. We loved using the log fire, a lovely added extra, both for warming the house (although the heating system worked fine) and also snuggling on the sofa with our hot chocolates in the evening!
The location is also fantastic. The lake itself offers lots of lovely views and beaches to walk along. We also travelled further afield to join the flocks of tourists in the white mountains 'leaf peeping' but it was lovely to get back to the quiet and peaceful cottage at the end of each day.
Bristol, a short drive down the road offers lots of quaint cafes and gift shops and you mustn't miss the old country store for a wander and, at this time of the year, some freshly cooked cider apple donuts.
We hope to return. Don't hesitate to book, this is a great location and everything you need in a home away from home.
We stayed a few days right after labor day. Price was reasonable. House has all we (4 adults 1 kid and 2 babies) need, like wifi netflix all equipped kitchen bbq standard bath tub and washer dryer. It has easy access to beach area also walking distance to wellington state park. Its about half an hour drive to other tourist attraction by the bigger lakes, 2 hrs to Mt Washington NE highest peak 6000 ft.
We loved Newfound lake. It was peaceful and serene, much needed escape for us new yorkers...
my husband and I stayed for a week with my 2 year old son. House was extremely clean and well maintained. Lots of space with the open floor plan! The large deck out front was great for all meals. Super quick walk to small beach. Wellington state park is an easy walk as well. Owners respond to any questions very promptly. We will definitely rent this house again!
My family and I just stayed in this home this summer. I couldn't say enough about how great it was! It has all the amenities that you could ask for, from the modern kitchen to having wifi. The porch in the front was great for outside eating and relaxing. The private beach was amazing as well. Newfound lake looks like it's a painting! The owners were great too, we had left a few items behind and heather was gracious enough to get them back to me. I would recommend this place to everyone looking.
Our family had a wonderful visit at this charming home. It has a great deck, kitchen, and lots of relaxing space in the living room. There are many amenities, and the area is so nice. We spent a lot of time at Wellington State Park, took the gondola to the top of Loon, went to Storyland (an annual event for our granddaughter), as well as other area attractions. The rental process was easy, and the property owner helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.
Stayed here for our annual girls get-away, very nice, clean and private. We had a great time.
Lots of good hiking trails right outside the door, shopping and places to eat nearby.
It was a very relaxing trip.
