About the property

Enjoy lake front living in this pristine cottage-esque home on beautiful Crescent Lake; a location away from the hustle and bustle, yet well situated for many four-season outdoor activities.

This newly renovated family-friendly home faces West which allows for phenomenal waterfront sunset views. An expansive deck leads down to a sandy beach area with walk-in water access (perfect for younger children and launching your kayak), and a large dock (which can hold a boat up to 20-25 ft).

The open-layout (living room, kitchen, dining area and 4-season porch seating) is perfect for comfortably hosting 8 people (perfect for two families) and offers lake views from just about every seat. The entire home has been newly renovated (2015-16); new carpet (in bedrooms), new hardwood floors downstairs, updated, fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, and fresh paint in every room.

Amenities include: gas grill, 2 adult kayaks, 2 children kayaks, 1 canoe, linens (sheets, towels, beach towels), wireless internet, netflix, and washer/dryer.

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8:

Bedroom 1 (downstairs): Queen bed and full-sized futon.

Bedroom 2 (upstairs): The "bunk room" - two standard twins and a bunk bed (4 twins total)

Bedroom 3 (upstairs): This is a huge master suite with a small deck overlooking the lake. It includes a queen bed and a sitting area with a pull-out bed (unfolds to queen bed). The sitting area is great for game-playing, watching TV, and/or quiet relaxing. Perfect spot for children to hang out for some down time!

Bathroom 1 (downstairs): includes shower stall

Bathroom 2 (upstairs): very large bathroom, includes bath tub and shower combo.

Great location for all seasons. In addition to summer water activities enjoy: great trails for hiking (right out your front door); summer activities and winter skiing at Mount Sunapee (just 20 minutes away); leaf peeping in the fall; ice-skating & snowmobiling in the winter.

Crescent lake is located in Acworth / Unity, NH, near Sunapee, Clarement, and Newport. Shopping and antiquing just a short drive away!

Beautiful, well-equipped, and well-maintained property in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as advertised. The home is beautiful, nicely decorated, and equipped with anything that you would need for a stay on the lake. The owners were communicative and helpful. I would definitely come back if I am ever looking to stay in the area!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a peaceful location. The owners have put a lot of thought and effort into making this a wonderful retreat! There is nothing you need - except food - to have a wonderful vacation. We did not have the opportunity to fully experience the outdoor activities as we were only there for the weekend and the weather was uncooperative. We are planning to go back, stay longer and really experience lake life! Still looking forward to kayaking and seeing the whole lake. This is a great place for adults to relax and unwind as well as a spectacular place for kids with so many things for them to play with and do - wish we had grandchildren to take!

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was here there and everywhere this summer. Myles Away was a great spot to reconnect and relax. The lake was clean provided endless hours of swimming and boating and you can't beat watching the sunset on the dock.

Lovely home, lovely lake, lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We had such a terrific time at the lake!

The lake is beautiful, serene, very clean and quiet. Not crowded, but enough other activity to make it very family friendly. We vacationed with our adult children and their spouses - and all had a terrific time! Even the dogs who could not get enough of fetching and retrieving from the lake!

The humans enjoyed kayaking, canoeing, swimming, viewing, family games, fire pit etc.

Close enough to Sunapee to include that in our vacation as well!

The entire home is nicely appointed with great views from almost everywhere. The kitchen, living room, sun room, and dining room all open out to a lovely deck and dock, which then overlook the firepit and beach area.

Everything was convenient and well thought-out. We had a wonderful time!

Our favorite vacation to date!

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect. The lake is serene, extremely clean and dreamy. We stayed for 2 weeks and it absolute perfection . We returned home in a vacation depression as we never wanted to leave. We have vacationed in the lakes region for over 10years and this, without hesitation, was our most favorite spot!!! Just splendid!
