About the property

3 king-size beds, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 adults, 2 children

Situated on one of the most picturesque spots in the Lakes Region, our home rests on the corner of Lovell River and Ossipee Lake, with Mount Washington & Chocorua in full view. A well appointed, gourmet kitchen offers a 5 burner commercial cooktop, 36” pizza oven, microwave, dishwasher and all the small appliances needed to cook up your dream meal. A cup of coffee in hand, your first tough choice of the day--the picnic table by river’s edge or the lounge chairs on the sandy beach. Water sports,

fishing or a day of golf are just minutes away. You can also enjoy meals prepared at local restaurants. End the evenings sitting by the campfire, toasting marshmallows, amazed at the glorious sunsets and sharing moments of the day. As bed time approaches, bathe in the sunken 6 foot whirlpool tub or shower in the surround shower on the first floor. A second floor half bath is also there for your convenience. Ceiling fans and air conditioning allow total comfort.

Nestled on a lakefront in the Ossipee woods, experience two vacations in one. You have the fun and enjoyment of a lake vacation with the water, boating and mountain scenery in the front of the property, and the tranquility of a natural setting on the river side. Wildlife abounds in the rear of the property, with sightings of deer, moose, otters, beavers, loons, ducks, geese, woodpeckers, chipmunks, fireflies, frogs, turtles, eagles and fish. After your day outside, you return to a modern updated home complete with all amenities. Conveniently located, Laconia, Conway, North Conway Outlet stores, Rochester, and Maine are all within 1/2 hour's drive. Enjoy the many local restaurants, or travel to the more populated areas for that special treat, knowing your quiet oasis is waiting for you when you return.

About Jim

A home we took 20 years to build and furnish. At the end of each year, we look around and try to add improvements that all will enjoy. We hope to see you soon. Thank you for visiting us, we hope to see you soon. Warmest regards, Jim

Why Jim chose Ossipee

Why this property is one of the easiest questions to answer. Just look outside. You literally are on the water, a beach that goes on an on. A grass deck with tree cover. And the magic of the full flowing river with all the wildlife that come with that experience. Then all you need to do is look up at the magnificent mountains and lake right in front on you. All that just steps around the property! Then take a look at the inside with the fit and finish of a full custom home. Custom tile, cabinets, wood work, carpet, furniture, and bedding. This is a family home, created and built with only one goal, a perfect retreat for anyone, or lifestyle. Every item placed in our home had only one question asked, "will this item make the vacation experience better." We believe it has.

What makes this house unique

Improving on the gifts of this setting is a real challenge. But using it as a canvas makes all of the custom work inside that much easier. Ranging from the hi end appliances, washer and dryer, 3 Kluft king sized mattresses, American Leather pull out beds. If we could add a unique feature we did. From the outside shower built into a tree, to the hand painted tiles, to the hand hammered copper hood. The sunken tub, surround shower, and peace and quiet of a mile into the woods. Nothing better.

Incredible house, location and wonderful caring owner!

  • 5 of 5

I am so reluctant to write this review as I do not want to give away such a secret! We had the pleasure of renting this awesome house on one of the most amazing properties on the lake. I came to New Hampshire to hear the loons. Not only did we hear them during the day and night on most days, but we saw them too! We had a nice fire in the great fire pit every night. The family and I were so in tuned with nature's clocks i.e. beaver swims by at 7:30pm, mama duck calls for babies at 7pm, the shifting of winds etc . . that we were culture shocked coming back to the big suburban America after our vacation.

Couple of highlights- kayaks were in very good shape - you will not need to bring any - paddles were in great as well. Beds were amazing. Showers both inside and outside were EXPERIENCES that need to be on your bucket list. Jim (owner) like us apparently LOVES to cook. The kitchen is for a FOODIE. Grill, pans, pizza oven, k cup, coffee maker (drip) - all nop notch. We were making great meals in rural NH! You can feel Jim's pride in discovering the wood working, windows, furnishing etc. It was an honor to be a guest.

Jim and this house are first class!

My daughter learned to fly fish off the property - perfect for this - she was catching all sort of sunfish (little) in the river.

We miss the house already and are doing everything we can to get back to it next year!

WIFI in the house works well too; however, do not bother to rent this house if you intend to work here! It is too precious to let it go to waste.

Spectacular Views and Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Jim is a true visionary. The home is special to say the least. We have been staying on the lakes for 15 years plus. From A to Z this was the best home we have stayed at. That includes homes twice the price on Winnipesaukee. From the natural woodwork harvested from the woods to the greatest shower I have ever taken, this place is special.

The view of the mountains is amazing. The river with a couple of deep swimming holes is right behind the house. There is a Bald Eagle who calls the river home. We were lucky enough to see him every day. Even though Jim is not a boater, the dock is first class. The home inside is incredibly well appointed with everything you could ever need. The beds and linens are high end. The appliances including the pizza oven are all top notch.The beach is about 300 feet of pure sand leading to a shallow waters edge.

This is truly a special property and a labor of love for the owner. There is a golf course right behind the property and several full service marinas minutes away on the lake. If you rent this home you won't be disappointed.

An exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more thrilled with our week at Jim Lamm's immaculate lake house. Not only was the setting as peaceful and pleasant as advertised -- we enjoyed the stunning mountain views, private sandy beach (very fun for our one-year-old), crystal-clear water, and safe kayaking along the river -- but the house itself is impeccably clean (the owner runs a cleaning company, and it shows), bright, spacious, climate-controlled, charmingly decorated with rustic touches throughout, and luxuriously equipped.

A typical day for us: wake up with the sun, have coffee on the covered patio, go out on the completely still water for an early-morning kayak; lunch in one of the nearby towns (check out the Tamworth Lyceum, 20 minutes away, or the shopper's paradise Wolfeboro); an afternoon of swimming and sunbathing; dinner in the gourmet kitchen (we made heavy use of the pizza oven); evenings watching the sun set behind the mountains, making a fire, playing cards on the patio, or just sleeping in the comfortable, air-conditioned bedrooms. (It was quiet enough there that our sensitive toddler could sleep through the night with no problems.)

Special recognition has to go to the showers, both indoor and outdoor (!!), which boast insanely strong pressure, unlimited hot water, and multiple individually controlled heads at complementary angles; I'm not one to rave about plumbing but this was just incredible. All the infrastructural details of this house are fully thought-out, from dimmers on the overhead lights to foot-washing stations outside, with storage everywhere. It outclasses every other New England vacation house we've stayed at, by a mile.

Jim was a courteous and friendly host who clearly goes out of his way to make his guests comfortable, and we appreciate it. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

Back for Round 2

  • 5 of 5

If it ain't broke, don't fix it! We came back this year to Jim's terrific waterfront home, the outdoor shower is even more fabulous, so much to do locally to keep kids happy and a perfect place to relax. A new 2 man kayak got a real workout and the lake is as clean and sandy as ever. It's perfect for children as it stays shallow for quite a way out and you can sit on the beach and see the depth of the water, no scary sudden drop-offs to worry about. The local restaurants are good there's even decent pizza, we're from NY so you can take that to the bank. There's a decent sized supermarket not too far away and a small but decent market 2 minutes from the house. One of this year's highlights was watching our resident Bald Eagle in the back yard every evening. This property is amazing, you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful home, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the last week in July at Jim and Sue's beautiful cottage. the cottage location is private and perfect. It has the river on one side and a large expanse of private beach on the lake front. The view from the cottage and the beach, in our opinion is the best on the lake. You can't help but gaze out at the lake and mountains from the cottage or the beach and feel the stress of daily life dissipate. The water is shallow for a fair distance out which is great for floating or for kids to play. The bottom is sandy. To swim you need to wade out a bit, but this was not a problem for us. The cottage itself is well appointed. The message chair was a hit with all. The kitchen has all that one needs. The showers are amazing, especially the private outdoor shower with multiple shower heads coming from all directions. On our stay we enjoyed numerous visits to the back yard from a bald eagle. We saw a beaver, loons, a loon momma and her two babies and a fox. We loved our morning kayaking adventures. The motor traffic on the lake was very light and did not interfere with any chosen activities. We highly recommend this cottage for a stress free, fun and relaxing vacation.

Amazing!!! 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this beautiful lake house last week, and it was amazing! We found all the wonderful things mentioned by past reviewers were absolutely true. Jim was very helpful and friendly. His attention to detail has made this home a very unique place to stay. The location on the lake was perfect, and the home was very clean, comfortable, and well appointed. They provided linens/towels, beach chairs, a fire pit, the kitchen had everything you could ever need including high end appliances, and the beds were extremely comfortable. We very much enjoyed using the kayaks and the massage chair. The outdoor shower was amazing! We highly recommend this lake house. Thank you Jim and Sue!
