About the property

See our updates: air conditioning and heat in every bedroom, new bathrooms upstairs, & new 24 ft deck overlooks the lake! Beautiful flowers, lots of wildlife, awesome fishing!Our year-round house sits on the West shore of Lake Winnisquam. This camp has been in our family for three generations. The 24' gas fireplaced livingroom was originally a one room school house in Laconia, and brought across the ice by draft horses. We have pictures of the original owners & the original B&B guest book for 'Camp Westwood' from the late 1800's. Beautiful spacious sunny rooms all have a view of the lake & Belknap Mountain Range. The kitchen has all the amenities: Jenn-air stove, lg frig, dishwasher and disposal. The large dining area with pine table that seats 10, and has 2 large bow windows overlooking lake. Play cards on the 24 ft porch with 3 large picture windows and a slider to the 24 foot deck overlooking the lake. Sit by the outside fireplace eating s'mores and watch the moon rise over the mountains across the lake.

Take in the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the bench of your private 40 ft dock which has easy access to water, for your enjoyment in summer. We have 2 kayaks, a canoe, a paddle boat & row boat with electric motor for your use at no extra charge! Fishing on Lake Winnisquam is fantastic Summer & Winter, we can show you our secret spots! Sit at the picnic table and watch the eagles, osprey, great blue herons, loons & ducks. There are bird houses and feeders all around the yard. My Grandfather started the beautiful flower, vegetable and herb gardens which surround the property. Follow the native trout babbling brook which borders the property and travels thru the woods either walking or snowshoing. Relax and enjoy the private, woodsy setting, located on a quiet dead end road, away from traffic.

About Debbie and Mark

My husband & I have been lucky enough to have this property in our family for three generations. We live in the carriage house next door. We are avid fishermen and love all 4 seasons here. We have lots of great memories of good times & friendships made over the years. Lake Winnisquam fishing is terrific: Lg & sm. mouth bass, lake trout, rainbow trout, white & yellow perch & sunfish. The wildlife is abundant. The gardens are beautiful! We love to watch the sunrise and the moon rise over the mountains across the lake. We live in a wonderful neighborhood!

Debbie and Mark purchased this chateau / country house in 1925

Why Debbie and Mark chose Lakes Region

We are so thankful that our Grandmother & Grandfather chose this spot back in 1925! Step back in time and read the old guest books and journals from 1903! It is such a beautiful location with the Million Dollar View! We are so happy to be able to spend 4 seasons here.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Relax, quiet, beautiful surroundings. The house is full of charm with sunny spacious rooms filled with history. We have two 45' HDTVs, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. We have an apple tree, and fresh beautiful flowers & herbs surrounding the property, ready for picking! We enjoy feeding the birds and watching them nest in the houses by the lake.

During Winter we ice fish in front of the house, x-country ski, downhill ski/tubing, snowmobile to Canada from our front yard/snowshoe the woods exploring animal tracks along the brook.

Renter beware

  • 2 of 5

The home is nice, the A/C is great. The wooden doors were swollen so opening and closing one of the bedroom doors was like a wresting match. It is pricey but you don't have to worry about sheets and such which is helpful. Owners live on site which we were not aware of until shortly before our trip. They seemed like nice people and tried to make you feel like a guest. Everything seemed to go OK. Over a week later after they had another family rent they filed a claim on us to the insurance company for a broken crisper drawer in the fridge. The shelf in the fridge had issues when we got there, we didn't investigate what was the issue just stocked our food in the fridge to enjoy our vacation. It froze our food all week long and ruined any produce we had. I have not received any communication from the owners asking about the drawer before they decided to blame it on us.

Owner's Response: I am sorry the renters were so unhappy with our lake house. After a few days they complained the bath tub wouldn't drain. My husband immediately went up and saw they had the drain in the closed position. He showed them how to open and close the drain. At that time the wooden door was not sticking. Only when they were leaving did they mention the bathroom door was "a little sticky". We checked and the door was not sticking. He checked all the doors and they all open and close fine. We have listed on our VRBO website, under owner information, that "we live next door in the carriage house". It isn't a secret. I never realized they thought this was an issue. We try to give every guest their privacy. We stay on our side and work in the veggy garden. We have our own dock and swimming area away from the lake house. The cleaners came in a few minutes after the renters left and showed me the crisper drawer was cracked. The freezer was turned down as cold as it can go. This froze the refrigerator too. I turned the temp to normal and it works fine. I took pictures, researched where to purchase a replacement, and sent it to CSA. The renter had purchased the $59 accidental insurance policy thru CSA and I put in a claim to replace the drawer. This was not a charge to the renters. I am sorry their food froze all week. I don't know why they didn't tell us. If they had we would have fixed it immediately. We try very hard to keep our lake house in good condition. We inspect everything each week and repair problems as soon as we see them.

Everything anyone would want to make some memories!

  • 5 of 5

Camp Westwood was what we have been looking for years and Mark and Debbie could have not been more helpful for us to enjoy it. There is more than enough of everything to keep our gang busy for the week.....we lacked nothing and even the weather worked for us, I don't know who they arranged that with! As soon as we get all our crew to decide on a good and available week we will return. Ron and Jacki

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was wonderful place to stay during my daughter's wedding. Access to was easy main lake roads and the front view to Winnisquam lake was beautiful. We were very pleased with the home's space, 4 bedrooms and intriguing history. We had frequent visitors coming or staying with us during wedding with plenty of space to accommodate. Owner Debbie and Mark made our stay easy and effortless. They were very respectful of our privacy, but we could no help to invite discussion with Debbie and Mark and obtain some intruding history of the home and surroundings. They offered use of kayaks, canoe, fishing pole, etc. during our stay, which we enjoyed on lake. I would recommend the Lake House to my friends and look forward to another opportunity to return.

Peaceful and relaxing....

  • 5 of 5

Camp Westwood is on a beautiful location on Lake Winnisquam with beautiful sunrises. The home is well stocked to meet the needs of just about anyone who visits. It was so nice to step out the door lakeside, and be able to walk on the dock in so few steps. There's even a bench on the dock to sit, fish, or just enjoy the views. The listing information was completely accurate. We enjoyed the tranquility, and the hospitality of the owners, Deb & Mark!
