Franklin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Year round vacation rental. Cozy four bedroom, three bath lake house, privately situated on almost 2 acres of Aiken Point, with a private dock and private sandy beach. Built in the 1930s as a summer residence for a wealthy Massachusetts family, this house maintains all the charm of that era, with all modern appliances in the kitchen. It is a quiet setting (you can hear the loons call), with lake views from most of the windows and views of the mountains from the yard.

Upstairs is a master bedroom with a queen-size bed and private bath. A second master bedroom with queen-size bed shares a large bathroom with a bedroom containing two twin-beds. There are great views of the lake from the upstairs bedrooms.

Downstairs is a bedroom with a with pyramid bed (bunk bed with one on top, two below), and single-bed, with a small bathroom and shower across the hall. There is a large kitchen, with plenty of counter space and breakfast nook, butler's pantry, and laundry area. The formal dining room and living room have water views.

There is also a screened porch with comfortable seating and dining furniture, and great views of the lake. You will not be disappointed in our beautiful waterfront home.

Great Location with a few minor issues

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house for one week in July 2015. We were a group of 8 with ages ranging from 55 to 14 years of age. The house is more run down than the photos show. It is in a great location with amazing views of the lake. The size of the house is perfect for large groups or multiple families, as well as the 3 bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. The draw backs include:

There is only one 19 inch old style TV in the whole house and no wireless internet. SWe brought a router after reading a previous review. A flat screen TV would be a great addition in the living area for rainy days and older folks who have a hard time seeing the small one that is there now. The porch furniture is terrible and uncomfortable and the living room couch and chair have seen better days.

Don't expect to use the fireplaces either, since they do not work.

The bed linens are a cheap 200 thread count and no beach towels are provided, so bring your own.

We own a vacation rental and feel with a few minor expenses, this could be a wonderful rental.

The on site care taker is awesome if you need anything!

Perfect Place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend to attend a family wedding in Sanbornton. The property was EXACTLY as described and pictured on its website....very neat and clean. The bathrooms are original to the house, built in the mid 1930's, but that's part of the charm. The beds were very comfortable. The house is on a point on the lake and has everything you need. We barbequed, sat out on the lawn overlooking the lake and just relaxed when we weren't busy with wedding events. Jim, the manager of the property, couldn't have been nicer and made us feel right at home. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

A group of five late 20-something, early 30-something couples came up here for a long weekend away from Boston. We had a great time. I do not think the pictures do the place justice. The interior of the house is well maintained, extremely clean, and put together.

We ended up skiing and snowboarding at Gunstock, shopping at the outlets, snowshoeing on the lake, talking with the local fishermen during the Webster Lake Ice Fishing Derby, and hanging out in the house.

I would not hesitate to stay here again in winter or summer. The house is surrounded on three sides by water and has awesome views. Further, the place is pet-friendly and our dogs loved running around.

Only minor complaint (EXTREMELY SMALL ISSUE) is if you need wi-fi, bring your own router from your house. There is super fast internet with an ethernet cable, but no wi-fi router. We went to the Walmart and got one for the weekend.

Other than that small issue, we had a great weekend. Highly recommend it and look forward to coming back in the future.
