About Sheila Argue

Sons of New Hampshire, Dan and Dave grew up summering on Crystal Lake. Currently residing in Michigan and Maryland, Dan and Dave continued to come home to New Hampshire to vacation with their respective families. When the chance to buy a Crystal Lake cottage came up, they jumped at the opportunity. The cottage has become a favorite childhood memory for the kids. Lots of great extended family fun, swimming, boating, sailing and hiking the mountains.

Sheila Argue purchased this cottage in 1999

What makes this cottage unique

Sitting on the front porch at breakfast watching the sun rise behind the mountains as the mist lifts from the crystal water is a favorite memory. Our cottage is cozy for a few yet can house a gang for extended family fun!
