About Brian Dunbar

We live in Madbury NH near UNH and Portsmouth. When we first purchased this Fryeburg property in 2010, our weekend trips with 4 young children were numerous. Increasingly their activity schedules have interfered with trips to our beloved 'Hattie Pike'. Hence our desire to rent our home regularly.

Brian Dunbar purchased this house in 2010

Why Brian Dunbar chose Fryeburg

This property offers a tranquil and quiet retreat from life's stressors. No road noise can be heard from the water's edge and no paved roads can be seen from any vantage point when boating.....yet a short 5 min (2 mile) drive to Fryburg provides most services. The large size of the lake makes for great boating and watersports. The lack of boat traffic, even on holiday weekends, is striking. The views of the surrounding mountains, including snow-capped Mount Washington from November-April, strikes a chord with most visitors. The 2/10 of a mile unpaved camp acces road (Hattie pike road) reminds one they are entering a wilderness setting. The gentle slope of the wide-open front yard is ideal…it is flat enough to allow for games of croquet and frisbee in warmer months while transforming to a sledding hill in the winter months. The frozen lake is populated with many ice-fishing huts from Jan-March and serves to connect the many snowmobile trails on either side of the lake.

Perfect Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came from all over to cook dinner for my parents who live in Bridgton, Maine. The place was fantastic and very well kept up. Everything was as advertised and the basement was a bonus for the kids to go down and play in while meals were being prepared. Everyone loved the hot tub! I would definitely stay there again !

Loved the location and the house was very spacious. Just wish the cleaning crew did a better job before my stay especially since we are charged a cleaning fee.

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay. The home has a great set up with the deck, screened in porch, spacious kitchen and living room. The beach was ideal for our little ones. No packing up the car with stuff...just walk out the back door.

Beautiful home with everything you could possibly ask for 😊

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, beautiful lake .... all the amenities you could ask for and then some! We had an absolute blast!

The house is kept very clean and ready to go when you arrive. Plenty of sleeping space for all your guests & of course the water activities on the lake are a huge plus 😊?

Located in Fryeburg ME, between Bridgeton ME and Conway NH, on a beautiful waterfront lot with private beach, this property is one of a kind. The gradual 'zero' entry into the water and delay before a deeper drop off makes swimming/wading safer for small children. Lovell Pond is 1100 acres with average depth around 30 feet. It is roughly 3 miles long and 1 mile wide.....the name 'Lovell Lake' may be more fitting. Despite its larger size and presence of a public boat launch, the lake has minimal boat traffic. This allows for safer waterskiing/boating conditions and a more tranquil lakefront. The property provides direct access to snowmobile/ATV trails and is only 15 min to Conway outlets, 15 min to Shawnee Peak, 20 min to Cranmore, 30 min to Attitash and Storyland, 60 min to Sunday River and Bretton Woods. Fryeburg has a local grocery store, pharmacy, specialty beer/wine store (the 'Good Beer Store' ), and several restaurants all within 5 min drive. Oxford House Inn (Fryeburg) is regarded as one of the top 3 restaurants in the greater Conway region and its downstairs pub 'Johnathan's' has the same menu in a more relaxed setting. Paddling the Saco River using the local canoe outfitters is a must between May and October. Lovell Pond connects directly to the Saco River at its southern end, which allows for paddling directly back to the private beach after a day on the Saco. Lovewell Pond is home to bass and pickerel for fishing enthusiasts. Bridgeton ME and North Conway NH have hospitals with 24 hour Emergency Room service and are about 20 minutes away. There is a State of Maine sponsored 'rails-to-trails' project which will ultimately create a paved biking/running path from the state line in Fryeburg to Portland, ME alongside unused railroad tracks. The path currently begins at the Fryeburg -Conway state line and runs south 7 miles parallel to Lovell Pond. Like the snowmobile trails, it can be directly accessed across from Hattie Pike Road (the 'camp access road') on the other side of route 5/113. It is a short walk (2/10 of a mile) from the property to this newly paved bike path.
