Take advantage of Spring Skiing at Mount Sunapee Resort and stay 20 minutes away on Crescent Lake! Memorial Day weekend is also still available! Summer is now completely booked at Duck Head cottage. Fall weekends are beautiful and quiet at the lake!
Beautiful Lake Front Cottage with all the comforts of home and New England charm. Recently Renovated with original charm kept in mind!
50ft 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 3 kayaks & 1 canoe. The dock will hold up to a 21 foot boat. The dock has stairs to a shallow sandy swimming area great for small children and older adults and the end of the dock is 15+ feet deep with 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 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!
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
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!
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.
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!
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!!
Very relaxing stay at this beautiful, cozy home. We took full advantage of the what the lake has to offer and had a great time. Cooked meals in the fully stocked kitchen while taking in the sights and sounds of the lake, enjoyed s'mores and stargazing by the outdoor firepit, did lots of cannon balls off the dock, and went out for several kayak and canoe trips. About 30-40 min from Sunapee where we took on a great hike.
Our dog Keely also had a fantastic time. Kari and Rod go out of their way to make you comfortable and welcome. A great spot!
We had a great time and a wonderful vacation. The water off the dock was deep and great for diving and swimming. The area was very peaceful and relaxing, and the cottage was very comfortable and had all the amenities that you would find in your own home. Definitely recommend this to others.
The house was clean, beautiful and organized. The view of the lake is wonderful. We enjoyed swimming, fishing and boating. S'mores around the fire at night finished off the day. A really great family vacation!
Duckhead Cottage is an amazing getaway that provided much needed quiet and rest. The lake is clean, beautiful, and quiet, and the house is perfect--a mix of rustic, immaculate, and up to date. The cottage is well stocked but not cluttered. We did not need to take any extras with us, as all of the water gear, fishing gear, and outdoor items were available for our use. The kitchen has everything necessary for home cooking, and the games provided plenty of entertainment on the one rainy day during our stay. The view is lovely, and nighttime allows spectacular stargazing, with the Milky Way overhead. We stayed for a beautiful summer week with our five young children and made memories that none of us will ever forget. The remote nature of the cottage enabled us truly to be away from it all, and we kept wondering how we would ever leave. We will definitely be back! Thank you for being such kind and accommodating owners and for sharing your beautiful home!
This was our 5th or 6th visit to Duckhead, but the first with our second child born in May. We, and our 2 kids were joined by 2 old friends. There was plenty of space for all - in fact, the additional bedroom next to the master bedroom was a perfect place for a babe to sleep - very quiet and out of the way. There really aren't words to describe Duckhead and Crescent lake, but solace, comfort and tranquility abound. We enjoyed great meals, lots of swimming, kayaking and music around the campfire. I can't recommend Duckhead enough, especially for young families looking for some quality time in their busy lives. Well, I guess if I receommend it too much, maybe it will be too booked up for our next visit!!!
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!
