The Bays Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, bathroom with shower, sleeps 4

Relax in this comfortable (seasonal May-October) lakefront family cottage with knotty pine interior, large deck and screened in porch, on which many a lobster and clam feast has been enjoyed on beautiful summer evening - mosquito free! Enjoy the sandy beach front and dock for swimming or mooring your power boat. Our cottage sits on Broad Bay with a beautiful view of Mt. Chocorua. Abbots General Store is right down the street, so you don't have to worry about whatever you forget. Also, we just added high speed internet so you can stay in touch with friends and family.

This cottage is perfect for a private getaway.

Relaxing mini-moon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose to take a "mini-moon" to simply relax and catch up on much needed rest after stressful wedding planning. This cottage was absolutely what we needed. It's family built and run for generations and you can feel the love. It's simple and small, but it is perfect. Everything you need is there and is well maintained and clean. We spent our days laying out on the dock or row boating and our nights sitting on the porch playing dominoes. We chose to grill (which is included with the house) most of our meals and eat on the deck. But there is a fully functional kitchen with all the appliances and utensils you can need. The beds are comfy and there is a nice new couch to lay on too. And, if you must, there is a TV. But I highly recommend not turning it on.

I will never forget the amazing sunsets and moon risings every night and listening to the lake wildlife. I can not recommend this place highly enough. We fell in love with Lake Ossipee and with this house.

A vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a delight! My husband and I and our two dogs vacationed there the week of 8/2 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house was spotless and had everything we could have needed or wanted!

The house sits back from the road and is private from the neighbors. The sandy waterfront beach, deck and screened porch are wonderful. We spent most of our time at the house, sunning, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and reading. A very relaxing vacation! Thank you.

Great place, just right.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size, clean, sunny beach and nice view.

Everything is well kept and in great shape. Wi-Fi was a nice surprise, and is a must these days since cell service at the lake can be spotty.

Would love to go back again next year.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this beautiful cottage the last week of June and can't say enough great things about it. The cottage was very clean an Gary the owner was so nice. It was so quiet both day and night. We went to Wolfeboro a couple of days and hiked Mt Chocorua. We also spent many days down by the sandy beach area. This cottage has everything you could need both inside and out. We both didn't want to leave (including our dog) and can't wait to go back. What a great value!
