About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This quaint and cozy cottage is situated in the quiet and beautiful New Hampshire countryside making it a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage shares approximately 33 acres with our classic New England farmhouse. It is located roughly 100 feet from the house and around 200 feet from our privately owned sandy beach on peaceful Lake Winona. The next closest neighbor in any direction lives around 500 feet away. A country road divides our property in two with the house and cottage on one side and the lakefront and beach on the other. However, the traffic is minimal because we are located in a very rural area. The beach is a brief walk across the street and down a modest hill from the cabin. A limited, but beautiful, view of the surrounding mountains and the lake is visible from the cottage porch.

Beautiful lake and private beach

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful location. The owner is extremely nice and helpful. A great place to relax and get in touch with nature. We spent many hours kayaking, swimming, and just enjoying the beach.

The Name Says it all !

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the two of us. We lived in NH for 20 years and this was a return visit for family reunion and rest . Great area for drives and food.

Loved the beach, kayaks and bonfire. Maybe tennis next time on local courts.

Really nice meeting you Bruce! We will return.

Peaceful getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Bruce's place and it was as amazing as we remembered. The surroundings are just superb - we absolutely adore the private beach & the kayaks are great to explore the lake with its islands. The docks are also really nice - perfect for a morning yoga session!

Everything you need for a peaceful getaway...

We can't wait to return - thanks Bruce!

Very nice cottage. Just a short walk to private beach area on lake Winona. My wife and I enjoyed kayaking lake and a fire on the private beach area. Location very good for drives to areas of interest such as Mt. Washington, Lake Winnipesaukee and bicycle trails. Nice getaway for couples. The owner Bruce was very friendly and cottage very clean.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

Trip to this charming cottage was truly wonderful. Quaint, clean, private and so lovely. Short drive to the main lake and tons of great hiking nearby. Relaxation by the lake during the day and evening bonfires by night are exactly what signed up for. Thank you Bruce and we will be back.

Perfect getaway

Beautiful. Adorable. Romantic

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I loved this cabin. I caught a large mouth bass on my second cast off the pier! It's cozy, adorable and just perfect for a couple. We wanted a place that was far from the noise and congestion of Boston, and this place was a great romantic and peaceful escape. The pictures do not do the place justice. Grilling by the lake while watching picturesque sunset reflect off the calm waters was so relaxing. The screened in porch was great for eating lunch or reading a book. The owner Bruce clearly takes pride in maintaining his property. He is a really cool person, so make sure you say hi.
