Center Ossipee Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 Bdrm, 1 Bath, Sleeps 10

This is the place for you if you are looking to spend a relaxing week with your family! The property is located down a quiet country road on one of Ossipee Lake’s most beautiful & serene beaches with a mountain peaks backdrop. The house is about 50 feet from water’s edge on a private, exclusive to you and your family, natural sandy beach. The beach is oversized and flat with a very gradual grade into the water, very safe for families with young children still learning to swim. Some of the outdoor amenities include private boat dock, canoes, life vests, swim raft and a lakeside fire pit right on the beach with wood for campfires and s’mores under the stars!

The house is a classic seasonal rustic cottage built in the ear;y 1900’s. It has been in our family since the early 1950’s and we feel like the antique style adds to the natural splendor of the lake. This is not the place for you if you are looking for all the modern amenities. The kitchen has a sink, electric stove/oven, microwave, full size refrigerator/freezer, blender, utensils and cooking supplies. There is also a Weber propane grill for outdoor cooking. The living room has a river stone fireplace surrounded by rocking chairs, perfect for congregating around the fire place on cooler evenings. There is a flat screen television with cable as well as internet access. There is one small full bathroom with a stand up shower. There are 5 bedrooms for up to 10 people, all with brand new comfortable mattresses! The screened in porch overlooking the beach and lake is where you will spend hours eating, playing games, reading, etc. It has a large table that seats 6 and a smaller table that seats 4 with plenty of seating for the whole family. Bonus feature - a lake house style creaky slamming door out to the beach!

From the porch and beach enjoy watching loons, bald eagles, ducks, and the many water sport activities people are doing on the lake. Our beach is in a protected cove which makes it one of the best places on the entire lake for watersport activities like water skiing, kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding. Our private dock is yours to park your boat for the week or for the kids to jump off (feet first please, no diving, it’s not that deep!). Bring your own boat or visit one of the local marina's on the lake to rent a boat or jet ski. Go for a paddle adventure to one of the nearby rivers on the lake where you're sure to see some water critters, plenty of birds and turtles catching the rays! Tour the lake and drop anchor at one of the many beaches, sandbars or river estuaries where people from all over the lake congregate. Fishing is also a hobby of many on Ossipee Lake. The fish population includes small and large mouth bass, three kinds of trout, land lock salmon among others. Whether it's relaxing on the beach, water sports activities or nature watching nothing is better than a day at the lake!

Our home is located just one mile from route 16 and route 25, convenient to many local attractions. Indian mound golf course, state liquor store, grocery stores, restaurants & White Lake Speedway & Mini Golf are just down the road. Just a 20 minute drive to Wolfeboro & Lake Winnipesaukee. A 30 minute drive to Conway outlet shopping, and the beautiful Kangamangus Highway. One hour to Mt. Washington, Cog Railway & Storyland. Plenty of nearby easy to difficult hiking trails or take a day trip to hike the Presidential Mountain range in the White Mountain National Forest. Visit North Conway's outlets where you're sure to get amazing Back-to-School deals. Visit area Ski Mountains to ride Alpine Zip Lines & Slides. As fall approaches take a scenic foliage drive to the famous Kangamangus Highway known for endless miles of spectacular fall foliage or take a drive up Mount Washington. The lake is often all that most need during their visit, but there are plenty of excursions for all!

Why Christina Close chose Lakes Region

Ossipee Lake holds a special place in our hearts. Built in the early 1900's, the cottage has been owned by 3 generations of our Family since the 1950's. We have enjoyed this house for over 6 decades. Through the generations we have always enjoyed spending time at the lake. Many memories, many laughs and lots of fun! Our goal is to share this amazing experience with our guests. It's so relaxing and unique and you surely will not want to leave!

Peaceful summer retreat

  • 5 of 5

The pictures accurately describe this very quiet and peaceful lake cottage but they can't truly convey the serenity you will have sitting at your private campfire on the beach watching the sun go down while your grandchildren play in the warm and clean lake in front of you. Or the sunrise from the Adirondack chairs on the beach that will take your breath away. The cabin looks small but is very big inside. It is definitely rustic, but that's perfect when you have 4 grandchildren from 3 to 13 years old! There is a TV but I don't think we ever turned it on because we spent close to 12 hours a day OUTSIDE!!!! This is truly a wonderful place to remind yourself, or teach your family, how to take an old school vacation. Even my 13 year old granddaughter forgot to check her Facebook status a couple of times and she found out that the world didn't end. That is priceless. The Dearborns obviously take great pride in their cottage and their attention to detail and easy accessibility in making the arrangements made this my favorite family vacation in decades!

Dearborn Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The owners description is exactly what this house is all about! Very quiet and rustic place to relax. The Dearborns were absolutely wonderful to work with!! Answering all of our questions and keeping in constant contact with us in the prior weeks to our vacation. If you have little kids that are happy to play in the water all day then hangout by the fire at night then you will love this cottage. The laundry mat is less than 5 minutes away along with several restaurants. We had 3 adults and 3 kids (2 sep families) and there was more than enough room to spread out.
