Why Thomas E. Neve chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

This property allowed us to share the unique qualities of days gone by. The cabins were originally built in the mid 1940's. Renovated along the way to provide guests with comfortable but simple accommodations among a wooded but waterfront location. These simple accommodations were enhanced recently to provide updated features needed for today s lifestyle but still providing and maintaining the cabins original charm.

What makes this cottage unique

Simplicity. Private setting and unique accommodations. Pleasant surroundings. Children friendly. Water access for all ages. Private beach and safe swim area.

Fantastic cabin in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family abosuelty loved our stay here! The cabin was adorable and clean. The screened porch was our favorite place to hang out and look out at the water. Having the little beach right outside our door was perfect for coming and going with small children. We loved using the kayaks, swimming and fishing off the dock. Most nights we cooked dinner by the big community grill and ate at the big round table overlooking the lake. The close proximity to downtown Wolfeboro (so cute) was also loved by the whole family. Tom, the owner, clearly takes great pride in the property and ensures guests have a great stay. Can't say enough about this spot and we will definitely be back!

We Came Back!!!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our first visit to # 9 Museum Lodge so much, we wanted to try to recapture those wonderful days in the cabin on the Lake. We accomplished that and more......the weather was perfect for kayaking and spending time on the beach...warm days and cool nights. Our hosts Tom and Sheila couldn't have been nicer. It was a lovely week....

Peaceful, beautiful, relaxing and fun.

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week in cabin #9 at Museum Lodge on Lake Winnipesaukee and loved it! There were four of us there - husband and wife and two young adult daughters. Plenty of room and sleeping space for the four of us. The screened porch is great for relaxing during the day and sleeping at night. (You may want to bring a foam pad for extra comfort if you'll be using the sofa bed on the sleeping porch. The futon is very comfortable). The queen bed in the bedroom as well as the queen inflatable mattress in the living room sofa are both very comfortable.

Electric range, microwave, coffeemaker and fridge as well as a nicely remodeled bathroom make this cabin in the woods very convenient and comfortable. We chose the linen option as we traveled from the west coast and there were plenty of bed linens and towels for the four of us.

The grounds are just beautiful and so well maintained. We enjoyed daily outings in the kayaks and canoe. The lake is very clean and great for swimming too. The rec room with pool table and ping pong table, TV with movies and a huge library of books makes this a great place to hang out alone or as a family. It reminded me of the very best of summer camp with most of the comforts of home!

Tom is a great host and had lots of good tips for day trips around the area. The town of Wolfesboro is just a five minute drive away and has two grocery stores, lots of cute shops and a laundromat as well as several restaurants and boat rental stores.

We will definintely stay here again if we come back to New Hampshire and we highly recommend it to others looking for a peaceful getaway in the woods with the comforts of home.

Thanks Tom!

Owner's Response: Brad and Kathleen, I am so pleased that you all had a wonderful time at our cottage. It does bring you back in time, with today's amenities however. We are blessed to have such a special place to offer our guests. Thank you for trusting our listing on VRBO and I hope that your trip to New England from Seattle was as rewarding as you had hoped. I hope that our paths cross again in the future. Warm regards, Tom

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at this property. The lake is stunning and the entire property is fantastic. The cabin was super clean, adorable and charming. A short distance from the lovely town of Wolfeboro. We will definitely be coming back and recommending this location to all our friends. It was a wonderful find!

Lake Winnipesaukee is called 'the Big Lake'. A picturesque 90 minute car ride around the lake will introduce you to a myriad of special interests and attractions. Eight, unique New England Towns surround the Lake, each offering their own menu of features. The area is considered the 'oldest vacation resort' in New England.

Everything you will need is in the Town of Wolfeboro which is located about 3 miles south of Museum Lodges. There are five other, quaint, New England, Towns surrounding the Lake, each offering a variety of restaurants, shops and attractions.

Visit Castle in the Clouds, in Moultonboro and have lunch in a mountainside restaurant offering a picturesk and panoramic view of the Lake.

Visit many wonderful restaurants around the Lake for a quick breakfast or lunch or for a romantic dinner. Many family restaurants are also a good stop.
