Pair of cottages on one of Winnipesaukees nicest beaches perfect for families
Who wouldn't want to spend a week on one of the largest, cleanest most beautiful lakes in NH. The property, including two cottages rented as a pair with a nice yard and beautiful beach will provide you the perfect family vacation. Each of the cottages has two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, bathroom with shower and a screen porch. The nice level lot leads right out to the private sandy beach with no outdoor obstacles such as rocks, stairs or cliffs. Our beach is certainly one of the absolute nicest beaches on the lake. Situated in sandy Melvin Bay, the sand cascades from the beach and into the water as far out as you can walk! The water gradually becomes deeper which is perfect for our children, our grandparents and everyone in between.
This property is perfect for anyone that is looking for the sun all day since the property faces west. The sun comes up over the trees in the AM and stays with you all day until you have front row seats to a stunning sunset! For our guests who prefer some shade, you can pull up your beach chair under one of our trees along the beach.
Also included is the use of our 40' dock with prior approval and description of the watercraft you will be docking up to 22'. Use of our 12' aluminum row boat with plenty of life vests on hand is included also. The water is currently approximately 40" deep at the end of the dock. Water depth cannot be guaranteed. The dock is sturdy and has no problem securing my 22' inboard boat.
There is also a marina with boat rentals just under a mile away!
Water is supplied from lake and should not be used for drinking water. You MUST bring your own drinking water (and to be used for making ice cubes, coffee, etc).

Why Jay Looney chose Melvin Village
After renting cottages year-after-year on many of the New Hampshire and Maine lakes, our goal was to one day have a lakefront property to call our own. Our dream became a reality in 2017! Having young children, my wife and I were looking for a property to balance our outdoor/lake interests and a safe place to create memories for our family and friends. This lakefront property is PERFECT! First, Lake Winnipesaukee is one of the largest, cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the area. The abundance of towns and restaurants with public docking also helped to solidify our decision that we needed to be on THIS lake! Secondly, this beach is certainly one of the absolute nicest beaches on the lake. Situated in sandy Melvin Bay, the sand cascades from the beach and into the water as far out as you can walk! The water gradually becomes deeper which is perfect for our children, our grandparents and everyone in between. Third, what is a beach vacation without the sun? We have no idea because the property faces west - the sun comes up over the trees in the AM and we get to enjoy it all day until we get to watch the sunset right in front of us (sipping cocktails). Fourth, we wanted a place to get away from our busy work/city life and experience the greatness that the New Hampshire lakes region has to offer. These rustic 1950's cottages are picture perfect - simple and well maintained....the way a NH lake vacation is supposed to be! I could go on and on....but because we have three cottages on our property, we are able to provide you the opportunity to come see why we LOVE this property for yourself!!! Please send us a message and we hope you create memories to last a lifetime here as well!

Excellent-- accommodations, location , weather and beach toys
Cabins were neat and cozy, and in chilly mornings m, the propane heaters were just right,'m. Kitchens were well equipped and beds comfortable. Would have appreciated bath mats. Also, rain drainage from new septic installation left grass marshy on arrival after heavy rain but it dried and owners say they are working in improving the landscaping.
Both cabins are exactly as shown in pictures. Sunset on beach is beautiful.
Property perfect for combined family/friends to vacation together but have own cabin. We brought our kayaks, and small boat.. plenty of room on beach and dock. Owners very nice, warm and welcoming. Cabins clean and stocked with cooking, dishes, silverware. Everything you need for a week at lake. Wonderful week can't wait until next year!
Nice quite peaceful vacation. Would highly recommend the cabins.
