Wolfeboro Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Main House, Sleeping House, Back Beach For Sunrise, Front Dock For Sunset!

Unplug...unwind...and refresh on Lake Went worth! Do your soul a favor and spend a week at Flight winds, our treasured cabin on Sister Island.

The beauty of this place lies not only in all there is, but also in all there isn't.

You can get up early and watch the sun rise from the sandy cove of the back beach, or kayak across pristine waters to watch the eagles soar over Stamp Act Island, a neighboring nature preserve. Spend your days fishing and swimming and reading in hammocks. As night falls, let lapping waves and laughing loons lull you to sleep in one of six incredibly comfy beds--or stay up late and marvel at the Milky Way.

Built in the 1930s, and in keeping with the culture of the lake, Flight winds does not have electricity or running water, which is part of what makes staying here so special. In a world of instant everything, it is truly a gift to spend time in a space that demands a slower pace. Water must be pumped by hand, lamps must be lit with matches...and our two-seater outhouse is not to be missed!! There is cell service, but we suggest turning your phone off--and leaving it off--for the duration of your stay.

In addition to all that our camp has to offer, you can also enjoy all the amenities of downtown Wolfeboro! Take your boat to the landing and stroll into town on the Bridge Falls path. Grab an espresso or an ice cream cone as you browse the shops. Choose from several great restaurants or grab something at the market to bring back to the island.

Flight winds is a place you will want to return to again and again. We look forward to sharing our summer home with you!

Couldn't have been better!

We loved our week on Sister Island, peaceful and relaxing. The cottage and lake are wonderful and we barely left to go anyway else in the area. We spent our week fishing, kayaking, tubing, swimming, paddle boarding, listening to the loons, playing cards and board games, cooking meals, and much more...all together as a family. It felt like we were visiting someone 's home and not a rental. It was nice that sheets, towels, and everything else was provided, less we had to bring over on the boat. It's not the vacation for everyone, but it's the perfect vacation for the right family...think glamping with a propane frig, stove, and wall lamps. It was even fun taking baths in the lake!

Loved my week in July 2015. The property is beautiful ,I loved having 2 waterfronts. It is not for everyone. I would call it luxury camping. If you are adventurous, have a boat and love peace and quiet and fishing , you will love this place. The smallmouth fishing is great. My dogs had the time of their lives, chasing the red squirrels. The water was crystal clear. I would give 5 stars if we had a bathroom. My wife did not like the outhouse. It didn't bother me. I would definitely rent again.

I cannot express the intimacy and connectiveness this property has brought between my wife and my kids and I. It's very surprising given its close proximity to one of the top tourist destinations in the country, but when we get to this island property, all time and distractions cease from occupying our minds. We revert to candlelight, simpler pleasures, sitting, talking in depth, noticing things we never have the space to notice, sounds that were previously undetectable, wind, crystal clear water, trusting fish that swim up to you so you can marvel at them, hours of exploration during the day among the little islands and features surrounding this property and then solitude at night with lanterns, the sound of the old water pump, grilled food over a fire or on the gas stove.... it's magical, truly magic that catches you off guard and stays with you for months as we reflect back on our shared experience. I know we will think back to those days and the personal connections and transition from the world with great fondness and dreamy reflections for years and years to come. Thank you for your generosity Steve and Gail... Dave, Wendy and the kids...
