Overview

About the property

Three Bedroom, 2 Bath Home, Handicap accessible by ramp, Basement Game Room

Home on waterfront has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and laundry.

Perfect spot for up to 8, or get together with friends 2,500 sq. ft. of living space with a large seating area near water, on 40 ft deck, or in family room with pool table.

Our home is situated in a very quiet cove with a southwest exposure on a the most pristine lake in the state of New Hampshire. 100 ft of frontage with a dock located on beautiful and crystal clear Merrymeeting Lake which is a 1,111 acre lake, 122' deep called the cleanest lake in New Hampshire.

This is truly a place to relax, enjoy the serenity of nature and have fun on the water. You are welcome to bring your own boat and tie up right at the dock. We have a paddle boat, swim raft, and kayak available to use.

The 40 ft long wrap around deck off the kitchen/dining room offers direct views of the sun and lake and has plenty of space for outdoor grilling, eating, and lounging. Bird lovers delight in the hummingbirds, nuthatchers, etc. who come right to the deck.

We provide pillows, blankets, towels and sheets. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a wine refrigerator and trash compactor.

Ramps from the parking area direct to the main house and to the water allow guests with mobility issues greater access to the waterfront than most homes, although the house is NOT ADA compliant.

The home has a first floor bedroom, 2 huge second floor bedrooms, 2 full baths, one on each floor, two large flat screen tvs, fully equipped kitchen, DirecTV, and 2-zone forced hot water baseboard by oil heat. First floor has large kitchen with island and breakfast nook, dining area, living room with flat screen tv and large couch. Full bath with laundry and one bedroom with queen size bed. Second floor has master with king size bed and full bath (Jack and Jill). Second bedroom has two queen size beds. Ample closet space. Satellite tv and wi-fi but no land line.

A wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in July of 2015 at this great home. The house has all we could have asked for and more. We have stayed at many houses in NH over the past 35 years and this one is at the top of our list. The owners were right there for us and answered all questions we had. The bedrooms are big and the beds were very comfortable. The laundry on the main level was nice. The kitchen was full of what we needed. A trip to the store for the food you want for the week and you are all set. There is any kind of spice and/or condiments for your cooking. We had a beautiful week weather wise and enjoyed the water toys the owners supplied. If the weather had not been good we had so many options inside. The lower level of the home has a large TV and a great pool table that we used in the evenings. We used one of the tables in the breakfast nook to do jigsaw puzzles. There is so much space to spread out both inside and out. The deck is large with comfortable tables and furniture plus a very nice grill. As we drove to the house there are many houses on the lake so we thought the lake would be busy. This was not the case. In fact we found the lake to be quite quiet. The house is very private with many trees and the owners have beautiful gardens all around. We enjoyed watching the various birds that were right outside the large windows. The one day as our daughter was sitting on the dock (this was favorite pastime) she saw an Eagle. We were all jealous that we didn't get to see it. Our grandson (9) learned how to kayak and play pool .Our son-in-law rented a motor boat and went fishing My husband spent most of his time reading and studying I spent hours listening to audio books and doing my rug making. The house has a steep driveway in the back but don't let that scare you. The driveway ends on a level area and then there is a gradual ramp to the deck and house. Going down to the docks and water is not an issue either. Both my husband and I use canes and there was no problem at all. I could go on and on about this home. We would recommend it to all that are looking for a place that has it all. All that is needed are some books, your clothes, your toothbrush, and time to enjoy the lake, home and area. There is the ability to communicate with the outside world but personally I would leave the electronics behind and just enjoy what God has created. Thank you Brian and Nancy for allowing us to have your home for a week. We hope to be able to return.

A wonderful rental on Merrymeeting Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and relaxing week at this waterfront home on a lake that my family and I now call a "hidden gem". My parents, my brother and I all came from different cities and spent the week together here and it was everything we needed and more. The location was great, especially when driving from the Boston area (easy trip) and the house had privacy, quiet and all the amenities one would need. And the lakefront view was amazing. Brian and Nancy (owners) were very helpful and we arrived knowing everything we needed to know... and they were reachable all week if needed. My father has some trouble getting around and this house was perfect for him, with ramp access to the house and lake and a bedroom/bath on the ground floor. I hope we are able to stay here again next summer and highly recommend the property. What a great vacation!!
