There is a 3 minute video you can see here on homeaway in the links and video section of this posting. or you can copy and paste this link:

We recently completed a $200,000 renovation. 100% remodeled from top to bottom. New high end Thermador kitchen. the home is quite large, but with a very intimate feel! It has a real Bed and Breakfast feel! Three floors of living space. Recently remodeled full bathroom and a brand new second floor bath with round glass corner shower.

A spectacular new stone patio with built-in fire pit.

We are pet friendly! See details below:

This house is pretty big, not a camp or cabin, more like a large English or French country cottage:

-Living room 23X16 lake views

-Family Room/Foyer 14X18

-Kitchen 18x13 lake views

-BR 1 16X13 BR 2 10x18 BR 3 15X18 lake views in 2 out of 3 bedrooms

This house is beautiful with 7 (yes 7) fireplace mantels. All uniquely designed. I have never met a person who did not fall in love with this house. We did, that's why we bought it. We never looked at any other lake houses anywhere, this was it and we knew it they first time we saw it.

In the summer we have a lakeside deck leading to a 24 ft boat dock and small beachy area. The water in the swimming area is quite shallow and great for kids, it has a mostly-sandy bottom and the water is warm. Crescent lake is one of the cleanest in NH. Deeper swimming is out about 50 yards. The swimming area is in sunlight all day, but plenty of shade just steps away. We are in the cove off the main lake in a no wake zone, meaning it is very safe for children, kayakers etc. The boat dock can accommodate water ski type boats, kayaks, canoes and paddleboats etc.

The lakeside yard has plenty of sun and shade.

We provide 3 kayaks, a paddle boat and 2 stand up paddleboards. Sorry, the antique Penn Yan boat is not available for renters use. But you can bring your own boat.

The yard has a spectacular new stone patio with built-in fire-pit with Adirondack seating and all the wood you need to burn.

There is a beautiful newly rebuilt covered porch overlooking the patio and lake, off the lower level entertainment area.

First floor mini suite bedroom with gas fireplace and family room with HDTV. There is a DSL wired and wireless internet hookup located here. (There is no broadcast or cable television available in this area. However, you can stream TV video on your accounts with Netflix, Hulu and your computer or our TV and our Roku box.

The first floor also has large separate living room off open eat-in kitchen with dining table and separate dining room and a large sitting area overlooking lake with gas fireplace. There are 3 dining/eating areas. This area also has a Bang & Olufsen stereo system for radio and LP's. Yes, LP's, and we provide a bunch. You can hook up an iPod or CD player and bluetooth here if you wish.

The kitchen is brand new, Thermador luxury with a triple oven, built-in refrigerator and induction 36 inch cooktop.

The second floor has 2 bedrooms, the master is overlooking the lake with a Queen size bed. The other bedroom is a guest/family or kids bedroom with a double bed and twin beds, sleeps four.

The lower level is an entertainment area complete with Pool table. A ping pong table that sits on top of the pool table is available. And twin sliding over-sized glass doors to the outside and porch.

There are tons of linens, comforters and throws to keep you comfortable anytime of the year.

There are fishing rods for your use. You will need to hook them yourself, worms are available from our new Unity General Store.

This place is great for Junes high school graduations and family gatherings

Why Casey Sewall cell 5082433928 chose New Hampshire

We previously rented this property for years. When the owners decided to sell we decided it had to be ours. We never looked at any other house, this was it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This lovely home on Crescent Lake is a comfortable one in which to live, with lovely views of the lake from the house and from the yard and dock areas outside. It is located at the end of the lake and is fairly private, both on the land and the lake.

The house is comfortably furnished for six visitors, with good beds and good seating for enjoying yourself, both inside and out. The owners have created a wonderful patio with a fire pit overlooking the lake, as well as comfortable furniture on the dock.

The kitchen has new appliances and is fully furnished. The work space is fine for whatever cooking a guest would like to do. The bathrooms, one on the living level and one upstairs, are fine.

The house is on a rather steep hill and guests need to walk down to the lake. This can be done either inside the house or outside with ease.

Our family has enjoyed renting this house twice. We enjoy being there and find it a very comfortable vacation space.

Completely as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The photos tell the story: the house is over-the-top posh for a vacation rental. It was way more than we needed for two, and we immediately began thinking of gathering up some family for a return at another time to take advantage of all the space. There us a nice assortment of boats, and it is at a great location on a cove off the main lake. Owner was agreeable to let us rent mid-week as it was off season. We would definitely return for lake fun and relaxing.

Wonderful week for our family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful cabin. It was spacious, inviting, and comfortable with plenty of room for the 6 of us (3 adults and 3 tween/teen children). The owners were friendly and accommodating. The kitchen was well stocked with new appliances, the house was full of games and indoor activities for the 1 rainy day we had during our stay, and there was plenty of room to be outside to eat, play, hang out... We loved all the boats and spent time every day on the water - we particularly enjoyed their new paddle boards as it make it easy to get in and out of the warm water for a swim while in the middle of the lake. The cabin is situated in a little cove off the main area of the lake which makes it quieter and there is quick, easy access to the larger area. We enjoyed the surrounding area's activities (hikes, ropes courses, zip lines, horseback riding, ice cream, lovely restaurants, etc). We would definitely consider coming again & would recommend this to others who are looking for a NH get-away.

A Fabulous English Cottage on Wonderful Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous week at this lovely English Cottage! When we drove up we realized the house was even nicer than than the pictures!! The house and the surrounding grounds are simply beautiful. And, the inside of the house is so well appointed, clean, spacious, and comfortable. The kitchen was a joy to cook in and there was ample seating for meals. We made full use of the kayaks, paddle boat and sandy beach area. And, you would not believe the size fish we caught right off the dock!! We also had many "smores" nights around the fire pit - which was spectacular. The owner Casey, could not have been more helpful and his attention to detail made our stay all the more enjoyable. and, he was always so quick to respond to any questions! We look forward to returning!

Very Relaxing Week at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a very relaxing week with my family (including our dog!) at this lovely house on Crescent Lake. It is very well equipped with lots of amenities. There is a small but clean walk-in beach which was great for my young kids. Ping Pong table, fishing rods, kayaks, paddle boards and a paddle boat provided plenty of activity for the week. The lake is very clean. The yard has a good mix of shade & sun so made it easy to be outside all day. The house is cute with a great kitchen/dining room area, 3 BRs (one downstairs, 2 upstairs), a couple separate living/family rooms including a bonus room downstairs. It's about a 20 minute drive to any large store so good to do your shopping on the way to the house. If you have young children, I would suggest bringing a baby gate as the upstairs "children's" bedroom doesn't have a door and is right at the top of the stairs. Fun, relaxing, quiet getaway!!!

A secret slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this lovely home for a week in July 2015. It was eveyrthing we had hoped for plus much more. The home offers amazing space and all the updates have been tastefully done. The kitchen..oh that kitchen!!! Home was equipped with everything you could need. We spent 99% of our time lakeside. We just could not get enough of it. My daughter ( 5 at the time) spent hours upon hours fishing because the fish were plentiful. She even caught a huge bass and would have caught more but they kept breaking the lines since they were that big. I can not say enough about this special home. The owner was also a pleasure to deal with. He was responsive and answered all questions very quickly. We were sad when our week was up but we have countless memories that will last a lifetime!

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (including 4 young grandchildren) enjoyed a fabulous 2 weeks. The house is charming - clean, well maintained, cozy yet spacious. I loved the owner's extensive toy train and oil lamp collections! We especially appreciated the recently renovated kitchen, complete with every appliance and amenity one could hope for. There is a large eating area both inside and out and the outdoor fire pit hosted several evenings of "S'mores" for the grandchildren. The family enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat and fishing from the dock. One afternoon was spend at near by Lake Sunapee where we took a boat excursion around the lake. In addition Newport (20 minutes away) is a small, quiet yet charming New England town with cute shops and a great farmer's market on Friday afternoons! Casey, the owner, was most obliging and helpful. This is a great spot if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax and enjoy the lake and fabulous views of New Hampshire!
