Spectacular views of Sunset Lake and the mountains will nearly overcome you when you first enter this newly rebuilt lake front home. Construction and furnishing has just wrapped up leaving the house ready for your relaxing vacation with your family and friends. The house is truly unique in its proximity to water, sunset views and panoramic positioning allowing for lake views in 225º of direction. Sunset lake, considerably smaller than Lake Winnipesaukee, is nestled in the mountains approximately 300 feet above the often-too-busy big lake. The private waterfront area is perfect enjoying the lake in that has a shallow area for wading, deep water access within 15 feet of the shore and a brand new dock to relax and sun bathe on. A canoe is available for exploring the interesting islands and coves of the lake. The fishing is excellent even right from the dock. If you wish to rent or bring your own boat the dock will accommodate a modest sized power or sail boat ($50 launching fee will be assessed). The waterskiing is amazing due to the relatively flat water and uncrowded nature of the lake. The spacious deck is elevated well above the water yet it rests right at the shoreline. The deck is complete with dining furniture and a new grill for your fantastic evening meals.
The house itself is a two bedroom ranch style home with spacious living areas and fantastic recreation space in the walkout basement complete with fantastic views, foosball table, home theater, game area and bar. Other amenities include a fully equipped kitchen, sleeper couches, smart TV, iMac computer (great for viewing pictures of your day's adventures!) and washer/ dryer . The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has a comfortable bunk bed and trundle. The sleeper couches and general layout make the walkout basement a great space for a second family or older kids to stay. The 4 beds in the bedrooms along with 4 pullout beds will easily accommodate the house maximum head count of 8 people. The house only has 1 full bathroom.
When everyone is thoroughly relaxed from days of lounging and evenings listening to the calls of the loons, you may wish to venture out for some activity. Just down the mountain, 6 or 7 minutes away, you will find Alton Bay with many choices of shopping for essentials and good restaurants. Extensive shopping choices and a huge number of attractions including water parks are available within a 20 to 45 minute drive from the house.
My name is Luke Howell. I am pleased to offer the house for others to enjoy on behalf of my family who has been coming to and enjoying the home for nearly 30 years. I live in York, Maine with my wife, Cynthia and our two young sons. Please let me know if there is any questions that I may answer for you.

After a day or two I believe that you too will see that this place is a special one. The lake environment combined with the people in the surrounding community make this area a great place to be. We sincerely hope you have a vacation with memories that last a lifetime.
We were so happy turning off the highway onto the long driveway. The property is perfectly situated near the end of the path and is as beautiful as the pictures in the listing. Everything was ready for our long weekend get-away. The house was clean and well appointed for our group. The best features of this property are the deck, with a grill we used every night, the dock, and the basement lounge area. After a day of hiking, or the Frayburg fair, it was so nice to come home and relax with movies and popcorn. Next time I need a quiet get-away, I'm booking this property again!
Spent two nights at the lake house with a group of friends. Unbelievably beautiful property and setting. Quiet with an amazing view of the lake. All the amenities are great. Cozy area with an outdoor fireplace and great access to the water. The house was very clean and inviting. Highly recommended and would go back in a heart beat.
This is an amazing stay. Everything you need is right here, just like home. The home is beautiful and views are amazing. We have been renting for the past 15 years and will be back to this home again next year. Luke and the family really know how to do it up right. We have 2 more days to enjoy this great home and wil make the best of it. Highly recommend to anyone for a great stay. Thank you to Luke and family.

We had a very wonderful weekend at this home. The property is new and clean. It was well supplied with items for cooking and entertainment such as a canoe, life jackets plenty of sitting areas outside and a fire pit. The location was great with access to the water and also very close to alton bay. I would recommend this property as a great vacation get-away.
A beautiful spot to relax. This lovely family home has everything you need including AC for those rare humid nights. The use of the canoe, proximity to various lakes, restaurants, and fantastic sunsets made our week away peaceful and fun. Thank you very much!
Very impressed with the renovation and location! The owners were always quick with response to any inquiry and handling of the rental was a breeze. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing get away! My family hiked Mt. Major, kayaked, enjoyed the rope swing at the dam and loved the Central AC on those hot & humid nights! Sunsets / views were the best!
