Beautiful Lakehouse Cottage - Pet Friendly

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The fully furnished year round house sits with a beautiful view of Pawtuckaway Lake and Pawtuckaway State Park.

The house is open concept with two bedrooms, kitchen, living room with gas fireplace, TV, and bathroom with shower. One of the bedrooms is on the first floor and the other bedroom is on a second floor loft.

Outside the house is a large deck and a patio area with a set of tables and chairs, adirondeck chairs for relaxing, a dock setup for a boat hookup. A small beach sits next to the dock for swimming in the lake, which according to a NHDES source is reportedly the 5th cleanest lake in New Hampshire. Three kayaks (one two-person and two one-person types) are available at the house for free use. Kayaking is great around the lake as there are many small islands to visit and wildlife to see. There are 10-15 bass fishing tournaments a year at the lake. The scenery is very tranquil as the house sits on the lake directly across from the 5,600-acre Pawtuckaway State Park. The 1,000-acre lake is very attractive with loons, small islands to explore, excellent swimming, 3-6 miles long, 50 feet at its deepest point, and very good for fishing of small and large mouth bass, pickerel, etc. Half of the lake is bordered by Pawtuckaway State Park, which has miles and dozens of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing in the summer and snowmobiling, ATV-ing, cross-country skiing, and ice fishing activities in the winter. The house is heated for continuous year round use through the fall, winter, and spring.

The house is 10 minutes from exit 5 off Route 101 and 30-40 minutes from the seacoast, Portsmouth, Manchester, or the Massachusetts border.

There are several restaurants (Tuckaway Tavern, Holy Grail, Pizza by George, Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and others), a large Hannaford supermarket, pharmacies, bowling alley, gas stations, post office, and other stores and amenities within 10-20 minutes of the house.

Most pets are allowed. Nightly, weekday, or weekend rates are available in the fall, winter and spring. $100 nightly with minimum 2 ight stay from Mid October to late May; $850/week in June and September, $1300/week in July and August.

Beautiful lake, wonderful weather, adorable house

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days at this adorable house. The weather was gorgeous, the lake was beautiful and neighbors very friendly, they even took us out on their boat the one day for a few hours! Having the kayak's there is amazing and we used them every day we were there. The house is absolutely adorable, despite the Patriots stuff Lol! The shower is small, my husband is 6'1 and barely fit to do a quick rinse off and the bed his feet hung over and wasn't too comfortable to sleep in. But we went there to experience the lake and enjoy some relaxing peace and quiet and we did just that!!! Overall amazing place and already thinking of visiting again at some point!

Adorable lake house!

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with this adorable lake house! It is even better in person. Four of us stayed at the house for a week and wished we could stay longer. The kayaks are in a great location and so easy to hop right into the water; we used them multiple times each day! We spent lots of time lounging on the dock, fishing and just enjoying the scenery. The house is cozy - our friends that stayed up in the loft bumped their heads a few times, but that wasn't a big deal. Waking up in this house is magical: many of the windows face east, so the whole house lights up in the morning with the sun reflecting off the water. The little nook off the dining area was a favorite spot for morning reading and afternoon naps. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are a lot of stairs to get to the house, so pack accordingly! The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the grill almost nightly. Stephan was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking and check-in process. We hope to come back again next year!
