Alton Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

2 spacious living rooms with spacious kitchen and large dining rooms w/porch

Sleeps 8-10 comfortably!

A blend of country and some modern this house has it all. 10 minutes from Alton Bay, easy access for shopping or attending one of the great events on the big lake. Looking to just relax? This property sits on the waterfront of pristine Sunset Lake. Awake to loons in the morning and the tranquility of being secluded in the woods on a lake.

Sunset Lake is a spring fed private lake with just over 100 homes and no public access! Clean and pristine! Kayaks, paddles, and life preservers are also available.

House is gorgeous with 2 full baths 4 bedrooms large kitchen, mud room, dining room overlooking lake, 2 very large living rooms and massive porch that wraps around the house. Grill on the porch and have cocktails on the 15x15' dock.

Spring, Summer or Fall, you really can't go wrong sitting atop a mountain on a lake (elevation approx 900 feet). There's something to do every season. Currently we're not booking in the Winter, but Winter rentals could be available within the next year.

Call for information.

About Chris

I grew up at this lakehouse so I take pride in enjoying the home, the lake, and the tranquility of the Lakes Region. My wife and our two dogs frequent the lake as much as possible and plan on continuing the tradition!

Chris purchased this chateau / country house in 1991

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This property brings the all the home essentials to you while sharing a unique lakeside experience. 1 hour and 30 minutes north of Boston make travel fairly easy from 93N or 95N and offers a quick escape. Sit by the lake all week or attend one of the many festivites/festivals offered by the Town of Alton down by the bay.

Spacious house with gorgeous vistas of Sunset Lake

  • 5 of 5

This house is well laid out--we were 7, and fit easily in four double bedrooms, one of which is gigantic, with splendid views. Two large, comfortable sitting areas. Kitchen well-stocked, large dining tables in and out, deck well-situated, nice fire pit and dock, with three kayaks. The lake water is beyond beautiful and you can walk right in--comfortable, sandy bottom. Lake is quiet, too, very few motorboats even on a Saturday in July. Owner helpful and responsive.

Beautiful & Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly the place you want to visit if you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful getaway. The house is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen, large dining room, washroom, and two spacious livings rooms, giving you that "home away from home" feel. The numerous bedrooms also gives guests a feeling of privacy while all staying under one roof.

And the very best part about this getaway? THE VIEW OF SUNSET LAKE! Tucked away in its own little cove, this house sits on a beautiful waterfront location, with a dock that leads out to the lake. Great for boating, sunbathing, kayaking, swimming, relaxing -- and you just can't beat THE VIEW!

Cozy home, beautiful location, peaceful environment, perfect getaway for any family to enjoy!

Perfect Location and Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent an absolutely wonderful 4 days with another family at this property - 4 pre-teen/teen boys. There was so much to keep them entertained - fishing, kayaking, swimming. We found a rope swing around the bend that was awesome. The house itself was spacious enough to sleep all of us comfortably. The cove the house was in was perfect for relaxing on the dock with a cocktail! the yard was a great size for throwing around a football or Frisbee and our puppies loved hanging out and learning to swim! Owner was extremely easy to deal with. Note: no WI-FI and spotty cell service but that was just what we needed to really escape!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing house in a great location! My friends and I recently took a weekend trip here and could not have been more pleased with the accommodation and location. It comfortably slept 10 of us, with plenty of outdoor and indoor space for all of us. There is plenty of space for parking too. We are already talking about our next trip back!

spectacular getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I am in love with this property and this lake. It is close to Boston, the location is private and serene, the house was cozy and comfortable but nice and spacious. My friends and I had an absolute blast and we are making this an annual trip! The owner was so easy going and a pleasure to deal with. The property was very clean and inviting. And the sunsets on the lake are incomparable!

Thank you for this amazing getaway!

Beats the Big Lake

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful weekend/week away in this area of New Hampshire, this is the place to go. The greatest attribute of this property is that it is not on Lake "Winnie". This Lake is surrounded by picturesque views of the hills and mountains. The sunset is absolutely amazing. To the owners point about the peace and quiet, you will not hear the drone of large outboard motors and and the screams from party boats. The house itself is set up for many guests but is not too big for 2-4 guests either. It is what it is. It is an affordable (rent) lake house. It is obvious that the owner respects and takes pride in the property. Often you rent a vacation home that is clearly just that, an income property with no charm or care present. I would also add that Chris is extremely responsive and easy to deal with. I have rented properties before and have dealt with property owners who seem inconvenienced with questions. I plan to return!
