About Beth Freeland

Our family has been on crescent Lake since 1982. My parents built a house then, about 13 years later my husband and I built a house and when the next door cottage became available in 2008, we couldn't resist......

Beth Freeland purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Beth Freeland chose New Hampshire

We think this might be one of the best properties on the lake. Located in the cove it's quiet since it's a no wake zone of the lake.

But you get fantastic westerly views and beautiful sunsets.

It's just really beautiful and peaceful.

What makes this cottage unique

Just 2 hours from Boston it's a pretty easy drive. Close to ski mountains in winter and lots of fun activities on the lake in the summer. Screen in porch is a nice place to read and enjoy the view.

Relaxing weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a very restful weekend away over Memorial Day. The cottage is well stocked and comfortable with everything we needed plus some! The azaleas outside were in full bloom and I got to drink my morning coffee watching the hummingbirds visit them. Beth, Grant and Charlie were wonderful hosts! We will be back.

Lovely, peaceful, well kept

  • 4 of 5

The sunsets on the screened in porch listening to the ducks and crickets met our hopes for rest and relaxation at this cottage that has been updated and made comfortable. We enjoyed hiking near by and kayaking on Crescent Lake! A great little private spot!

No cell phone service. Otherwise quiet, relaxing and a great place to refresh. Wish I was more of a water person! Was unable to find many cable channels for night time watching

This is it!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave! We've stayed at many different lake house rentals at many different lakes, but this is the first one that we felt we'd return to. The house is absolutely perfect with everything you need. I think I spent most of the time on the screened in porch! The views are breathtaking. The house is nestled into a cove of the lake, so quiet and serene. Fishing is excellent right off the dock! Bass and perch aplenty. We kayaked the whole lake (kayak and rowboats provided along with life jackets) and swam along the sandy shore, which drops quickly for an excellent place to swim. We put off running to the store for more supplies because we just wanted to spend time as much time here. We had a great campfire every night to cap off each perfect day. Highly recommend!

Amazing Week!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was just like described and more. Everything needed was provided for. From shampoo to pans. Even shampoo for our dog, Benji.🐕 The cottage is beautiful. The views from the cottage looking out to the lake are lovely. The lake itself is great to kayak and swim. Our Benji loved swimming in it. We hiked and went to the beautiful beach in Mount Sunapee. The nearest town (20 minutes away) Claremont has a supermarket, Market Basket, which we loved. Thank you again Beth for an amazing week.
