Return to an era of simplicity and understatement on Lake Waukewan. Originally built in the 1940’s as a simple lakeside cabin, the Lakehouse has expanded over the years yet still retains the charm of its earlier days.
The original cabin is now a living room with comfortable chairs and large sofa for reading, watching favorite movies, working on a jigsaw puzzle or enjoying views of the lake from every window.
Hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing, motor-boating, water-skiing and swimming are at your doorstep in spring, summer and fall. Waukewan Golf Course welcomes summer visitors to its course and 19th Hole. Winter brings cross-country and downhill skiing; Gunstock and Ragged Mountains are both close by, snowshoeing, sleigh rides through historic Meredith Village, and ice skating.
Loons gather in our protected cove on this hidden jewel in the lakes region. Lake Waukewan is a bit of a secret, and the residents prefer it that way. Not that Big Lake excitement is too far - Lake Waukewan rushes down the Mill Falls into Lake Winnipesaukee, just five minutes down the road by car.
if you’d rather enjoy the lake at a more leisurely pace, you may choose to rent a kayak or canoe and row to Waukewan Beach. Take a stroll into town for an ice-cream cone at Town Docks. Upon your return, you might just see fireworks overhead; or maybe it’s just the stars lighting your way back.

When we were first married, we visited friends staying on Lake Wentworth in Wolfeboro, NH, and we fell in love with the area. My husband grew up vacationing in the Adirondacks, and the Lakes Region was reminiscent of those times he spent on the lake with his family.
We thought we wanted a house on the Big Lake, but once we saw Waukewan, we knew it was the spot for us. We love our protected cove for swimming, and the tranquility of a smaller lake make kayaking and canoeing a joy. 'You will grow to love this lake,' one of our neighbors commented to us. And we have.
This is a lovely and spacious home that my family will *hopefully* return to for years to come. We enjoyed meals on the new deck and large dining table and listening to the loons as we fell asleep at night. The house was clean and had all the indoor amenities we needed. The swimming area perfect for both waders and divers alike, and we loved swimming to the raft and boating around the point. We had kids, teenagers, and young and old couples, and the house never felt crowded. We highly recommend it!
lovely home, great location, close to all but far enough away for privacy.
we saw otters and heard the loons every day.
bbq'd outside and sat on deck watching sunset every nite.
we hope to go back soon!
If I say how much we enjoyed this place it won't be available for us to rent next year.
All of us were so thrilled with the clean and relatively warm water, great dock and raft to swim to. The house is very large, five bedrooms instead of the four listed. A wonderful dining table for all of us board players. Kitchen is huge and very well equipped. The location, so close to lovely Meredith, is excellent. Great walking town. There were tons of activities ;we almost welcomed a rainy day so that we wouldn't mind leaving that peaceful lake. And we did hear the loons sing. How thrilling! Good restaurants near by. I miss it already.
My family has stayed at this home for a number of years now. Each year, we enjoy relaxing on the deck, lounging on the lake, meals around the big dining room table, and quick access to activities in the surrounding towns. This comfortable, clean house is a meeting spot for our family and friends from around the country each summer for one wonderful week that we each look forward to. I'm sure any family would enjoy it as much as we do!
Our lakehouse community consists of families like ours who value the tranquility and quiet, natural setting of Lake Waukewan. Guests who enjoy listing to the sounds of loons, catching a fish (or not!) off our dock, and a relaxing swim in the lake will appreciate this warm summer community. Parents will enjoy the quiet cove and our swim platform, and children will enjoy the resident bullfrogs who appear occasionally on our beach. The lakehouse is not a party house; rather, it is a place to connect with loved ones and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
