Lovely waterfront Cape Cod style house with water views from almost every window. This clean, modern, open-concept home provides the perfect vacation getaway. With over 2,000 square feet of living space and everything from use of sandy beach and kayaks to double cedar decks and a gas grill this home away from home has ample space and amenities to accommodate your whole family or all your friends.
The large, bright, kitchen with island and family gathering area has plenty of space for cooking, entertaining, and relaxing. It is well stocked with everything from blender to wine glasses and welcomes everyone into the heart of the home. The adjoining living room with gas fireplace provides a comfortable yet luxurious gathering place to visit, read, or just relax. The first floor bedroom/den is a spacious hang-out room with HD TV, Roku, wireless internet, a closet full of games and puzzles for all ages, bunk beds and a sofa/futon. The large, full bath on the first floor offers plenty of immaculate space for showering or bathing children and convenient washer and dryer.
The second floor has a very large master bedroom with king bed and full-sized crib and walk-in closets. With panoramic water views and a private deck the master bedroom provides a romantic getaway and serene oasis. The second bedroom has lovely water views, a full sized bed, and a large closet. The third bedroom has a bright southern exposure, a full sized bed and a child bed.
The back yard and wooded perimeter provide plenty of green space to run around, explore nature, pick berries, play on the swing set, or play frisbee, bocce ball, or sprinkler games. For days of beach fun, just take a few steps through your back yard to the adjacent quiet, sandy association beach. Here you can lounge in the sun, build sand castles with the kids, take quiet rides in the kayaks, float in a tube, splash around, or swim for exercise. Bring your fishing pole and enjoy a great day casting from beach or boat. Kayaks, life jackets for all ages, and sand toys come with the house--your only job is to relax and enjoy. As evening approaches, savor splendid sunsets over the water. Then, cozy up around the waterfront fire pit to roast marshmallows and enjoy s’mores. In quiet moments you may see the resident beavers swimming by or blue herons fishing for dinner. At bedtime, drift off to sleep to the lullaby of soothing loon calls echoing across the water.

Laurie lives at Sunset Haven with her husband and three young children throughout the off-season. They love taking vacations together and especially enjoy getting outside as a family. When they're not taking day trips to the seashore or the White Mountains they cherish the family time they share swimming, kayaking, building sand castles, berry picking, and roasting marshmallows over the campfire at Sunset Haven.

First off, Thank you to Laurie and Matt! You have an absolutely beautiful home and take care of it quite well. They stopped by multiple times throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and were a pleasure to work with.
We stayed here for about a week while visiting family in the area. I was with my wife, 2 sons, and my wife's parents and sister. There is plenty of room in the house for even more people than that, as we also had some family members stay over here and there. There is also just about everything you can possible need during a vacation provided in the house.
We thoroughly enjoyed the lake, which was mostly quiet, except for the fireworks at night, which the kids and adults all enjoyed(we were there for the 4th of July). The fishing was also quite nice, plenty of large and small mouth bass to catch. As others have stated, 2 kayaks are provided, as well as beach toys and chairs. The fire pit was a nice touch. We definitely enjoyed hanging out around the fire at night. The backyard is nice and spacious and provided ample space for my 2 boys to play with all of the provided toys, which they very much enjoyed.
Also, as far as staying here with young children, the house is set up perfect for that. There are gates at the top and bottom of the stairs as well as a crib and other baby proofing throughout the house.
We could not have been happier!
Thank you again from the Tilley's and Lindsay's!
PS Laurie - As I told you when we were packing up to leave, I took some really nice pictures of the house and property. There was not an option to include them in this review. Let me know if you want them and they are yours!

This is a wonderful property and immaculately kept. There was plenty of room for our family of four plus various guests we had with us throughout the 2 weeks we stayed. The house is the perfect set up for kids. The beach access was just a few steps from the property and everything you would need to enjoy the water is right there for you - kayaks, chairs, beach toys, towels, noodles etc. Laurie and family are very attentive owners who were easy to contact and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
Clean spacious house with everything you could possibly need. Owners were super friendly. Thank you for a wonderful week.
My wife and I just spent a week with our son and his family, including two small grandchildren. We had a wonderful time. To say that Sunset Haven was well supplied would be an understatement - kayaks for the older people, beach toys for the little ones. Very quiet lake; almost no traffic. The home was spotless, with plenty of space to spread out. Thank you, Laurie and family! You were wonderful hosts and we had a terrific family time!
Sunset Haven was out family's "home base" during my daughter's wedding in Durham, NH. We had a very relaxing time at the start of the week... Making great use if the kayaks, fire pit and outdoor grill and deck. Laurie had all the essentials and great serving pieces to allow us to host the groom's family for a fun dinner too! Then the end of the week got crazy with wedding details, rehearsal dinner and the wedding itself. We were pleasantly surprised that there was enough hot water to allow everyone to take a shower over two hours!
Thank you, Laurie for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!
