About the property

Sleeps 6 - Master with king bed, open loft bedroom queen bed, lower level futon.

Great little getaway! Enjoy your time in this well appointed cottage. This lovely property is a 4 season waterfront home on Hills Pond and shares rights to Sunset Lake. Tranquility and nature at it's finest. Conservation forests nearby. Sit on the large deck and watch the birds! Completely remodeled home sleeps 6 people. 2nd bedroom is a loft bedroom. Dock will accommodate up to a 16 ft boat. Great bass fishing on this smaller pond. Some of the many amenities include wifi, dvd player, vcr, wood stove, central air, washer/dryer, gas grill, 2 kayaks, 1 canoe, IPod speaker system, spiral stairs to lower level, cable, local calling, deck facing the water and fire pit. Not only is there great sandy bottom swimming off of the dock, there are also 5 sandy beaches to use close by! Also a few minutes away from conservation trails great for hiking. This little gem is tucked away from the big lake, Winnipesaukee, but only 10 minutes away if you want to be a part of that as well. You won't be disappointed.

This house is in a great location for us. The kitchen has everything you need, and it is great for our family of four. You could also fit another couple in the downstairs if needed. The kayak and canoe are always the best part! I wish the fire pit was a little more accessible, but other then that it was great!

Beautiful home--perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were struck at how beautiful the home is inside and out. It has everything, and I mean everything, you might possibly need for your stay. The house is beautifully decorated and the deck is outstanding. We spent several days just sitting out there enjoying the sunshine and breeze and grilling our dinner.

Hill's Pond was very quiet while we were there--plenty of wide open space to enjoy the quiet and solitude. The fishing and kayaking were great!

I don't know what else to say other than we were very, very sad to leave and we cannot wait to come back again! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for lakeside living! Wolfeboro is nearby with cute shops and restaurants, but honestly, we only ventured out once or twice because we wanted to stay at the house!

Serene Setting for a Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This nicely appointed home is situated in a woody area on a very clean pond. The location is close to Alton Bay and Wolfboro. It is perfect setting for a relaxining vacation. There are many stairs to the home's front door and again to the water - but they are really easy to navigate - but they might be difficult for elders and younger children. We had no problem with them. The master bedroom is huge. The loft is very quaint and private. We would love to stay here again in the future.

Beautiful lake house in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this house on Hills Pond. The house is very well equipped with almost anything you need to self-cater. The deck with grill provides a great area for eating out from breakfast through to dinner and was well used by us for our entire stay. The use of the canoe & kayaks really helped to make this property ideal for us, as our son was hardly off the lake. The proximity to Alton and the larger Lake Winnipesaukee also meant there were restaurants and other activities less than an hour away. A great holiday home.
