About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8

Summer is now completely booked at Duck Head cottage. Fall is a beautiful time to visit the lake, the water is warm and the lake is quiet. Book now for a week or weekend away!

Beautiful Lake Front Cottage with all the comforts of home and New England charm. Recently Renovated with original charm kept in mind!

Less than 50 feet right to your own dock and waterfront for swimming, boating, fishing or water skiing. Or perhaps just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery! The rental is equipped with 4 kayaks, 1 double kayak & 2 canoes. The dock will hold up to a 21 foot boat. The dock has stairs to a shallow sandy swimming area great for young children and older adults and the end of the dock is 12 feet deep with a ladder.

Awesome views and exceptionally clean, warm lake.

This cottage makes for great family memories to cherish for years!

For nature lovers, there are great trails to hike right out your front door. Crescent Lake is located in Acworth, NH right in the middle of quaint towns, including Acworth, Sunapee & Newport. Great antiquing, shops and more. Mount Sunapee has fun Summer, Fall and Winter activities and is 20 minutes away.

In Winter, Crescent Lake offers skating and walking on the frozen ice, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on the lake, snowmobiling on the local trails, and skiing and snowboarding at nearby Mt. Sunapee or a little farther away at Okemo Mountain.

This lake home is a true gem & makes for magical memories with family and friends for years to come!

About Kari and Rod MacLeod

We are a family of 5 who loves being outdoors. We have fallen in love with Duck Head cottage and Crescent Lake. We enjoy our cottage getaway in all 4 seasons and love skiing at nearby Mount Sunapee.

Kari and Rod MacLeod purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kari and Rod MacLeod chose Dartmouth - Lake Sunapee

We were looking for a cottage on a lake that we could enjoy Springs, Summers and Falls kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing. We also love Winter in New England and were excited about finding a place that was driving distance to a ski mountain, while being able to skate, snowshoe and cross country ski on the lake. We fell in love with Duck Head and have enjoyed every minute of our time there. We love sharing the cottage with friends, family and renters when we can't be there because we want the cottage to be enjoyed as much as possible!

What makes this cottage unique

The house is cozy, quaint and steps away from lakeside fun. We are 20 minutes from Mount Sunapee and all that it has to offer year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a fantastic week in your lovely home. We had four generations up for one final summer hurrah. Weather was cool and calm, kayaking and s'mores, and board games were enjoyed by all. Everyone had plenty of room and our basset hound delighted with tracking all the New Hampshire scents. Thank you!

Quaint, peaceful mid-week getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this historic cabin literally on the lake. It was small and cozy yet roomy enough for a family (although we were just a couple). It was well stocked with everything we could have needed, impeccably clean and absolutely charming. The lake was fun for paddling and just sitting out and taking in the peace. We hope to be able to come back again!

Lovely and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This home is relaxing and comfortable no matter what time of year you go. We had snow falling almost the entire time we were there, and we stayed cozy and warm by the fire, looking out at the lake. We love how we had everything we needed for a snowy night, tons of board games, a TV with movies, a fire. This is our favorite getaway.

Warm, lovely, inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home in the off-season and we couldn't have had a better time. We relaxed by the fire and played the many board games that the owners have on hand. Everything was clean and so comfortable. We can't wait to come back and enjoy the area again. Loved it!

What a lovely cottAge!

  • 5 of 5

The owners take wonderful care of their lovely home, and it was comfortable and fun to stay here with our family, including the dog. :) On our one rainy day of the week, there were plenty of board games and puzzles for all of us to play together, and the lake is a perfect New Hampshire summer experience - cool enough to be refreshing and yet warm enough to dive right in! The kids worked on perfecting their cannonballs off the dock, kayaking and playing lawn games that were available. Dog walks along the shaded lake road were so peaceful, and the fire pit for s'mores in the evenings was alot of fun, too. We can't wait to go back!!

Charming, newly renovated lake cottage with all the comforts of home. Year round, four bedroom, two bath, washer & dryer, high-speed internet access and stone fireplace.

This home features a great dock for boating, swimming & fishing! Plus a shallow swim area for the little ones on one of the cleanest lakes in NH. Bring your boat for skiing, tubing & wake boarding. Four kayaks and one canoe are available for use along with fishing poles.

Winter activities include skating and walking on the frozen lake, cross country skiing or snowshoeing on the lake or local trails, snowmobiling, and skiing at nearby Mt. Sunup or Okemo Mountain.

Great fire pit to roast marshmallows and to cherish the days events!
