About Robert Heinrich
I am the Caretaker of this very special home. My Daughter and I run the fun here.
Robert Heinrich purchased this Castle in 1995
Why Robert Heinrich chose Gilford
This property is a well kept secret. The original home was built in 1897 as a Grand Victorian Cottage by AV Lincoln, the largest property owner in Charlestown,MA which was at the time the epicenter of Boston. Mr. Lincoln was the real-estate consultant for the railroad, which was booming at the time. Mr Lincoln sighted the home perfectly in such a way that it always is sunlit with the undisputed best view of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Ossipee mountains found anywhere.
What makes this Castle unique
Every day is beautiful from The Lincoln Cottage, rain or shine. Watching a weather event from here is alost as good as a sunny day. Everything you need for a home away from home is here at the Lincoln Cottage.

Excellent host, excellent location.
Robert was a prompt host, he gave an thorough tour and offered many amenities. After he checked us in, he gave us our space and we had a great weekend! Recommended the location to my parents who will also be looking into a weekend here.
The third floor game room offered an amazing view of the lake, I cannot even imagine how perfect it would be for the summer with the large double doors that open and allow the air to come in.
I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking.
Wow, I only wish all my guests were so neat. These finevyoung men even cleaned the ashes out of the fireplace. That is a first. I would be elated if either they or their families wish to enjoy my home, The Lincoln Cottage.
Amazing Lakeview Property
Amazing house with great lake views! Was perfect for our extended family reunion with the large kitchen and deck for cooking and dining. Nicely furnished and owner was readily available for any questions. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
A perfect family retreat with views that never stop, a roaring fireplace, and an A-1 kitchen.
