House, 3 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
I am in love with New Hampshire! It is in my blood and where I grew up. I have traveled all over the world and there is nothing like the true beauty and peace that you can find just sitting by the lake. I love to sit by the lake and relax with friends and family. Reading, relaxing and going fishing on the lake! I love to spend my down time in New Hampshire. We bought this house because I grew up on this lake! The house has been in and out of our family for the past 70 years. Most homes on the lake never go up for sale, they are passed down from generation to generation. We have made the house very comfortable as well as historic. It has been a journey remodeling the house an still keeping the historic enchantment. I have photos around the house of famous people I have met and worked with. I have tried to make the house very comfortable with luxurious soft linen. I want guest to love not only the peace and quiet but get a wonderful sleep in one of beautiful bedrooms. We love the many families that have returned year. You too can enjoy the New England Charm and find a secret place of tranquility. We have large yard with a wonderful horse shoe pit. We have many laughs over how to play a really good game. We often see ducks geese and sometimes deer in the yard.
Why Owner chose Northwood
I grew up on this lake! The family's on the lake return year after year! We bought the house for many reasons. The house is part of american history and had been in our family many years. There are 11 lake s in Northwood. My family used to own a beautiful Inn on the other side of the lake in the late 50's. . I love this part of New England! It is very peaceful and my father bagpipes for guest at sunset!

Perfect all around
Arlene was so easy to work with. House was super clean and it had everything you could need. Lake beach area was awesome including a water slide for small kids. Also had a playroom just off living area. Wifi and FireStick made for modern entertainment options and well. Will definitely return. Thanks Arlene!
The whole property was amazing. The large sweeping lawn and fruit trees. There were plenty of areas to relax in, the greenhouse, the patio, and the nice little cove with a swing and hammock. The beach was perfect for my granddaughters who are 3 and 1.They could wade into the water and lots of little fish nibbled their toes. They loved it. We were greeted every morning by a pair of loons. It was so quiet and peaceful. I would stay here again in a minute.
We are happy you had an amazing vacation at the Lake House! Please return anytime!
Labor Day on the Lake! Lobsters and more! So much fun!
Thank you to the owners of the Lake House and Family! We had a so much fun! We stayed over Labor Day and had an incredible week! We wanted Lobsters and the owners helped us find some tasty lobster at a great price! Really beautiful and very relaxing!
a dream house
The Lakehouse is about as nice a retreat as you can find - with a beautiful lawn down to a large beach and lake - a comfortable and large interior space for comfortable family living - all within easy distance of shops, parks, and fruit orchards where you can pick your own blueberries, peaches, and apples.
Thank you! It's so wonderful to have your family return every summer! We look forward to seeing you each year!
Great time in the snow!
My family booked this big house over christmas break.
It was so much fun! We got a huge snow storm and we made snowmen in the yard!
Great Place to Relax and Enjoy NH
My wife, son and I stayed for four days and enjoyed it immensely. John was extremely nice and welcoming and played the bagpipes which thrilled our three year old to no end. We fished everyday and made an excursion into Dover for the Children's Science Museum which I recommend for anyone with young kids. The house was clean, well maintained and inviting. We certainly hope to be back again.
So glad you had a wonderful time!
Thank you for the wonderful review!
The lake is known for GREAT TROUT FISHING! Bagpiper at sunset. Great swimming and sailing. Now Stand-up Paddling!
