Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 8

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!

About Heather or Jay McGaffigan

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

Why Heather or Jay McGaffigan chose Bristol

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.

What makes this chalet unique

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.

Spacious Rental at the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We were celebrating a Plymouth State Univ. graduate and wanted to get a unique, local property for the weekend. This house was very comfortable for our multi-generational family/group looking to spend some time together (yet all have our own room). It has everything you need in the kitchen, a well-stocked game cabinet, and a spacious living room to hang. We're from NH but never had the opportunity to visit Newfound Lake and this was the perfect introduction. Thank you to our hosts!

Great Location

Cozy Getaway on Newfound Lake

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house is very comfortable and the beach is just a minute walk from the front door. Though you couldn't see much of the lake from the deck, it was still a comfortable space to relax after a day of hiking. Near to the White Mountains and many other hiking trails and outdoor activities. The whole house was very clean and had everything we needed.

Peaceful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a comfortable place to hang out with your family, you will enjoy this home. The six of us, including 4 young adults, had room to spread around the large kitchen table and in the family room. For those who like to hike, you'll find Ellwell trailhead a few hundred yards down the road with many different views over the lake as you climb to Little Sugarloaf, Big Sugarloaf or Bear Mountian... however far you want to go. The forest was peaceful with many hemlock groves and the trail not as rocky as many in NH. Not only are there the views of Newfound Lake, the trail system has a large, pristine pond to enjoy. Our afternoon hiking was perfect after a gentle rain had fallen earlier in the day. We also enjoyed walking on the road, mindful of cars now again, along the lake, soaking in the beauty of fall on the water.
