The main house is approximately 2,300 square feet, and the cottage is just over 1,100 square feet. The main house has lake, field, mountain and garden views. The cottage, sited behind the main house at the edge of the woods, has a clear view of the field, beach, and lake.
In addition to the private beach and dock, the grounds include a field of wild strawberries, blueberries, and wildflowers (seasonal). The surrounding woods and miles of stone walls envelop the property on three sides, for total privacy. The house has a country garden. We are happy to send more photos of the houses and property.
The lake is perfect for swimming, kayaking, sailing, and low impact motor boats (the north dock of the boat house is yours to use). There is access to a canoe and kayaks. Numerous hiking and walking options throughout the Squam Range are a must -- the trailhead to our favorite quick morning and sunset hike, Eagle Cliff, is just a 10-minute drive.
The delightful towns of Sandwich, Center Harbor and Tamworth with unique restaurants, local farm stands, shopping and groceries are nearby. The main farmhouse and cottage are available for rent. A converted barn (not for rent) is also on the property.
