About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Renovated lake community home a short walk from the private beach. 163 steps to be exact. Leave the car behind and stroll down for swimming, sunbathing, fishing or boating. New furniture throughout including a cozy living room arrangement with gas stove and TV with full premium cable, Netflix and DVD. High speed WIFI. Central Air Conditioning makes it cool even during a heatwave. Two floor design puts the kids down stairs and the parents above. Large front porch for catching sun or reading the morning paper. Screened back porch for dinner and late evening drinks. Living room is big enough for all to gather. Kitchen is full of utensils for cooking or grilling outside. Clothes washer and dryer. Stove and microwave. All the amenities a family or 2 would need for a weeks getaway.

Suissevale Beach Community: Suissevale is a quiet subdivision in Moultonborough. Houses are spaced apart and very private. My cottage in particular is surrounded by trees in all directions. For residents and guests, there are many things to do. A full private beach just steps away. Two boat launches. Two playgrounds: One on the beach, the other at the clubhouse. Two tennis courts. Barbeque and picnic tables behind the beach. And so much to do in the surrounding area.

Cottage History: I bought the cottage about four years ago. I was hoping to find a family reunion point near all the family. The Lake seemed like a natural spot. My Aunt Sandy has been an owner in Suissevale for more than 15 years and loves it. She can also help with visitors like you. Most of the rest of the family live up in Berlin or down in Manchester, New Hampshire. Moultonborough was perfect. We looked at a lot of houses. It came down to two…this one or a new one a mile off the Lake. I wanted the new one, but 4 important women (my 2 aunts, my mother and my grandmother) told me close to the lake was better. It was big enough for everyone. It was well maintained. It was very close to the Lake. So I bought it. I’ve changed all the furniture. High-quality Ethan Allen furniture all around. We painted the entire place inside and out. There are all new decorations everywhere. It feels like a new home. But it keeps that cottage feel. I’m very proud of it and think the ladies made the right choice.

Northern Lake Winnipesaukee:. it's got lots of restaurant reviews and ideas on what to do. Fishing licenses, horseback riding and blue berry picking are all very near.

Perfect summer lake getaway house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mark's lake house in August. It was really very comfortable and cozy, with lots of amenities. The couches and chairs were great for lounging. Our favorite part was probably the screen porch--we really enjoyed being able to gather at the round table for meals, without being bothered by mosquitos. We even heard loons calling one evening.

Everything was spelled out in the instructions, and went smoothly. The beach is picture-perfect, the very ideal of relaxed New Hampshire lake. The water was sparkling and perfect for swimming.

Mark was a proactive and clear communicator, which made planning easy. I highly recommend this listing, and we'll try to book it again the next time we go to Lake Winnepesaukee.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Brian, thank you for renting your beautiful home to us. The house was in perfect order when we arrived and enjoyable in every way for our visit. We enjoyed swimming, morning coffee on the porch, and the outdoor fireplace in the evenings. I would highly recommend this rental It was a great place to stay and very close to the water which was awesome (of course we counted the steps - only 163 Steps to the water)! We hope to be back next year!! -- The Goscinak Family

Cozy, comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

This cute cottage is well maintained and equipped with all the necessities needed for a comfortable, delightful stay. The cottage was roomy enough to fit our family of seven adults. The front deck and the back screened-in porch offered additional space for relaxing. We were in the area to celebrate a wedding, and the location of the cottage was perfect...close to the wedding venue, other family rentals and the beach. The beach is a short, peaceful walk away. It is beautifully maintained and full of friendly people. In fact, we were impressed by how friendly the whole neighborhood was. Also, just a short ride away is a market where you can buy almost any "forgotten" or necessary item. We really enjoyed our stay in Suissevale and felt very fortunate to have found Brian's cottage to stay in.

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

Great location, very easy to get to and from the beach. We had awesome weather, the house was perfect for our weekend away. Loved having the fire pit and grill available for us to use as well. And the wagons were great for lugging stuff to and from the beach :)

Great Home for Families

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house very much - perfect for families with young kids as two bedrooms are equipped with bunk beds - the top bunks are twins and the lower levels are full size. The screen porch was great for dinner in the evenings. The home is very well equipped with everything needed for a beach stay. We brought our boat and kayaks - the ramp is very convenient just down at the bottom of the street and there is sufficient parking at the house for several cars and the boat trailer. If you obtain a sticker from the property managers, you can leave the boat on the beach for the day which worked out very well for us. The beach is very clean and very well maintained. If you have toddlers, best to bring a child gate to protect them from the stairs - we forgot but used the coffee table to block them in. Castle in the Clouds is about a mile away and offers great trail rides if you enjoy horseback riding. We certainly would not hesitate to vacation at this property again.

Beautiful home for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this home. The house was immaculate. We especially enjoyed the large screened in porch. Our younger family members rented SUP boards for a day of paddleboarding - the Suissevale beach is perfect for that! And our youngest family members were excited to see the ice cream boat pull in every afternoon. The beach is wonderful for swimming, picnicing, fishing, relaxing, and there is even wi-fi down there!

About Brian Hachez

My name is Brian and I consult banks on automation software. Most of my business is based in Asia so I am traveling a lot. When we talk on the phone, I might be calling from Singapore or Manila most times. I was born in New Hampshire about 2 hours from Moultbonborough. All my family is very close by.

Brian Hachez purchased this house in 2010

Why Brian Hachez chose Moultonborough

I chose Suissevale because my Aunt Sandy has a house in the same community and loves it. It's also very close to the town where my mother, brother and grandparents live. This house was chosen specifically for it's location. Just steps away from the beach. It was also well maintained by all previous owners [which my aunt knew personally]. After a full renovation, it is a real gem on the lake. Walk to the beach convenience at an affordable price.

What makes this house unique

First, it's the walk to the lake. This is very rare for a rental house on Winnipesaukee in this price range. Most houses on the lake are way more expensive to rent. Others that look close to the water have access blocked by private property. This place is steps away from the famous Suissevale beach. Finally, the house itself was fully renovated 2 years ago with all Ethan Allen furniture. Not cheap second-hand stuff here. Just high quality.
