The Bays House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bath, Sleeps 20

This perfect set up for multi family rental includes not one, but TWO houses, a four bedroom / two bath main house and separate one bedroom / one bath apartment. Sought after location features large flat lake facing lawn and fantastic beach located in one of the most desirable locations on Ossipee Lake. Beautiful 120-foot private beach with completely sandy gradual descent beach is absolutely perfect for children of all ages. No weeds, all sand, room for softball on the lawn and volleyball in the water. Perfect exposure has sun on the beach from morning till night, never in the shadows. Entertain on the large lakefront lawn or swim all day then spend the night under the stars around the lakeside fire pit or in the huge 8 person lakeside hot tub. Explore the lake with the four KAYAKS included in the rental. Home has a 70-foot multi slip dock just waiting for a rental boat (Rental Jet Ski’s or Pontoon boats are available from local Marinas).

Both houses have integrated whole house multi zone audio with 10 independently sourced zones capable of being linked to play music over the entire property – including hidden speakers in the yard and the beach.

The two story ~ 1800 Square foot main house has traditional lakeside cottage style charm with large airy cathedral ceilings, lot’s of tongue and groove pine and beautiful fieldstone fireplace. Dining space has plenty of room for 8 inside and ten outside in the screened porch, the perfect combination of inside and outside. Relax by the fantastic fireplace or watch a dvd or blue ray movie on a rainy day or play Wii on the 55” flat panel (Sorry no cable TV).

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

There are very few properties on a lake where it is ALL sand and NO weeds. You can swim or walk out into the water and only feel sand in your toes! Perfect for not just kids but anyone!

The Lahues are great to deal with. This was our second summer here and hope it can be 10 more!

We rented a motor boat at a marina on the lake and the kids learned to waterski, kneeboard and tube. The best part is that our family dog is able to join us.

We go with two other families and there is more than enough space. This is by far the best vacation house around!!!

Could Not Ask For Anything More !!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this wonderful lake house, with a large family group and 3 small children this set up could not be better, we have rented a boat to cruise around and also have just taken advantage of hanging there with all that is needed, Dale and Robin have been very easy to reach and pleasant to deal with. We have just requested dates for 2016, need I say more !

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property for a week to relax with the kids and celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. The property was perfect for our toddlers, elderly relatives and everyone in between. We hosted a BBQ one day for the birthday and everyone had a great time! The trampoline, boats, kayaks, balls, tubes, etc were all put to good use throughout the day. We loved that the deck overlooked the lake and that this home is on a quiet bay with less boat traffic than other areas of the lake.

The owners were very nice, easy to work with and gracious when we had a small miscommunication about arrival time. The house manual was perfect and helped us when we had any questions. We spent most of the week at the house, but ventured out to North Conway one day to see the train and wander town. Great location to hit Storyland as well!

Highly recommend for a relaxing family vacation!

Great place to stay with multiple families

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this property. We had 20 family members and we spent most of our time out in the nice big yard and in the lake. There were so many extras we would not need to bring half of what we brought with us the next time we rent. The owners were very accommodating and helpful in answering our questions. Definitely a property to consider for large groups. We can't wait to go back!!

Great Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends (18 adults) all gathered at this great rental home (and apartment) for an annual Pre-Thanksgiving Meal tradition, and it was a complete success. There was enough sleeping space for everyone with the pull out futons, pull out couches, and beds, and there was plenty to do for those who weren't heavily involved in the meal preparation. Even though the weather was a little on the colder side, several people took out the kayaks and pedal boat, fires were built, several walks around the lake area were taken, and the hot tub was a huge plus on those chilly nights. The whole home sound system was a lot of fun, and made for some interesting song choice "battles" between the house and the apartment. Overall, everyone had a great time, and we'll definitely be considering this property again next year! Thanks Robin!
