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; 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 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!

It's clear that K.T. and Chris have put a ton of energy and care into this New Hampshire getaway. The place feels like home and is a perfect spot to relax, cook, watch movies, and enjoy the lake.
The house definitely looks as great in person as in the photos. It's laid out well and feels roomy throughout. We enjoyed the open feel of the kitchen, living, and eating areas that all look out on the lake.
They've really taken care of everything so you can enjoy your time with friends and family. We look forward to coming back in the future!
When we first stepped in the house we immediately felt at home. From the welcome goodie bag to guest slippers and complimentary toiletries the owners special touches were felt. Being on the water was amazing as we spent most of our days there. At night we would settle down to a fire, take out the guitars and have a family jamboree. Pollards Falls was a favorite stop, Cornish Windsor covered bridge, local brewery and some hiking on border of Vermont.
The perfect getaway!
A little disappointed in the lake. It was not really swimmable. Also disappointment with the owner. While there the stove was broken and we received a msg stating the repair man would show up to repair. It never got repaired. Told we would receive $ back along with our deposit. After, we left; we received an email stating that due to excessive sand and dog hair on the furniture that we would be charged extra. Also due to a family member coming up for the day with her dog we would be charged an extra fee. So, we received only our original deposit back minus the $ for the broken stove we should have received.
Here is a list of the issues we were provided with from the owner along with my response.
*excess laundry: There was no excess laundry. All laundry was cleaned/folded and put back. Only laundry left were the sheets we stripped off the beds and put in the washing machine when we left. (We also bought new laundry detergent as there was none left for us. which we were told there would be)
*Excess sand. We swept the morning we left. Including the outside porch.
*additional dog fee. This dog was there one day and is 13 yrs old and does not shed. As for the excess dog hair. We had slip covers on all the furniture just in case the dog did get on it.
*additional cleaning fee – All dishes were done and put back in proper place. Upstairs bathroom was cleaned including sink and mirror. Counters /stove tops all cleaned and washed. All towels cleaned and folded.
I believe we paid for the cleaning fee. HMMMM why charge extra for sand and dog hair... if there in fact was any. When that house was cleaner when we left than it was when we arrived. (when we arrived, we arrived to a ton of trash that needed to be cleaned up from the prior house guest after a storm), tons of cigarette buts and dog poo on the law around the house, and the screen door was broken so the glass door had to always be closed so our pets would not come in the house wet.
One other thing, I noticed there where complimentary slippers. However, there was only one pair for 6 guests. You may want to ask your cleaning lady regarding this.
And just because we were nice neighbors while vacationing in your home. We gave a nice gift card to your neighbors for letting us use there electricity so our food would not spoil during the storm/no power/no water. (which I believe you never even checked on us to see if we need anything)
This was our first time at Crescent Lake, the Myles Away home was beautifully renovated and spacious. Perfect for our two families. The dock was great, and lots of fishing fun to be had! One of our favorite destinations were the waterfalls, this is a perfect spot for a fun outing just down the road. We also took all the kids to Mt. Sunapee, and bought the day pass for the ropes course, disc golf, etc. it was a blast for the kids and adults!
The weather was perfect for most of the week and we all enjoyed the outdoors experience. The canoe, kayaks and pedal boat together with lifebelt for our year old grandson Oliver, were all wonderful. The children's toys under the deck and on the beach were ideal for his stage in life. Our lunches on the deck and the restful afternoons in a hammock or hanging chairs were delightful and the sunsets gorgeous. The seating areas on the deck and dock were well set out and we were grateful for the safety gate installed on the deck, keeping our grandson safe.
The spaciousness of the interior of the very attractive lake house made our stay very comfortable and the very well equipped kitchen a pleasure to be in. The bedrooms and beds were comfortable, the décor pretty and the bathrooms were adequate for all the family needs. We enjoyed the closed in porch area for our family breakfasts and dinners and the beautiful views out to the lake with fireworks on the fourth!!
The laundry area was very useful with a well appointed washer, drier and tub and the general cleanliness of the house very good. Thank you for the many comforts, the TV for the evenings, the games and the internet, though reading was bliss too!
As far as comments and suggestions, here go a few:
We noticed on various uses of the dishwasher that the latch or locking system did not always hold, hence the programs did not always work and performance at times erratic. The odor from the drains was also very strong.
The mesh sliding screen on to the deck was at times snagged in the top plastic runner and might have to be changed?
On arrival at the lake house we found the deck, dock and front stoop to be very covered in tree debris and needed a good sweep and hose down. Also the window frames on opening the windows for air needed a good clean.
A few ceiling fans would have been appreciated just to circulate the air and remove some of the afternoon heat.
On a final note we wish to thank KT and Chris for a very cute Lake House and to say we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Best wishes to you and many happy days on Crescent Lake.

The Myles Away lakefront property is beautiful as well as functional! The home was exactly as it appears in the photos. Spacious, immaculate and fully equipped with all the amenities you could think of. It was so wonderful to just head out back and be able to have access to the clean lake, kayaks, canoe and paddle boat. Everything was in excellent working order and the communication provided by K. T. prior to our trip was exceptional! I have rented several properties and this one was the total package! The owners have gone above and beyond in creating a welcoming atmosphere for their guests. I felt as if we were staying in the home of a family member who personally knew me and anticipated all of my needs before I even asked. I spend many hours looking for the perfect vacation spot and I truly found it at Myles Away! I would not hesitate to recommend this property and I look forward to returning in the future.
