About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms With Lake Frontage And Mountain Views

With 225 feet of lake frontage this property shares the end of a peninsula with one other house. It is considered one of the finest properties on Highland Lake. Attractive sitting areas, a screened gazebo and an expansive level yard all face the lake and distant views of Mt. Kearsarge and Ragged mountain. Full use of the lake is encouraged with a small shallow beach, a 30 foot dock, and available kayaks, canoe and paddle board. Additionally, the spacious Andover town beach is in close proximity (a few hundred yards), as is the 50 mile Northern Rail Trail (walking and biking) and a public boat ramp. All close but not too close. This is not a rental house as such; but a year-round family vacation home which is occasionally rented.

The house has 1940’s charm with many updated features including an all new kitchen. The large living room/dining room has wall to wall south facing windows taking in the magnificent views while brightening the house interior. There are three well furnished bedrooms upstairs and a full bath; one of the rooms has a king bed, one a queen bed, and the third a double bed along with a bunk bed. There are two small multi use rooms off the living room and the kitchen on the main floor along with a second bathroom (with a shower). On the north side of the house is a large screened in porch. There is a washer and dryer in the basement. The house is very nicely furnished with virtually everything a renter could reasonably want.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for hosting us. The house and property are gorgeous. We especially loved the lake views from the house, and also the seating area w/fireplace in the backyard. The bunk beds and sleeping arrangements work perfectly for the family. We would definitely come back. Thanks again!

Wonderful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this beautiful place! It was comfortable, clean as a whistle, quiet and picturesque, which was perfect for our family. Everything you need for cooking, it's there in the well-equipped kitchen. And you can dine inside, on the porch or out on the dock -- lots of options, no matter the weather. We couldn't have asked for a better place to gather for a local graduation weekend. Thank you, Norris family, for sharing this gem!

Lake House Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The house on HIghland lake was perfect. It was clean, well maintained, comfortable, warm ( in a blizzard), and has beautiful views of the lake. Josh was accommodating of our special requests, ( providing a ground floor bed for our elderly father) and shoveling the drive and walk. It was a wonderful

Place to write, read, relax and enjoy our grandchildren. We can't wait to return.

Beautiful location right on the lake, great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay on Highland Lake. The house is well-equipped, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed the kayaks, paddle boat, and even swimming. Fall foilage was at its peak and the vista from the house with the colorful trees was absolutly gorgeous. We hope to be back soon!

Gorgeous location, wonderful lake and caring owners

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week we had. It was hurricane weather at our home and positively perfect at our home away!

The lake is the nicest we have been to and the home and owners were delightfully comforting.

Thank you to all involved!

About Owner/Property Manager

This house was recently purchased by our family to be used as a retreat for our children and their young children. Some of us live in Andover, some elsewhere. Our family has long been associated with Proctor Academy which is 7 minutes away. We are all college graduates and/or post graduates if that is important. VRBO seems to think so.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Property Manager chose East Andover

We had been looking for a house, appropriate for us, on Highland Lake for some time and feel very fortunate to have been able to purchase this property. It is a gem. We think the pictures tell the story.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the few four season houses on this area of the lake. There is a nice sense of community here during the summer, and during the other months we have the area pretty much to ourselves. We have the benefit of our own secluded and completely accessible waterfront with a small beach and a dock, but also the property has proximity to the town beach and the rail trail. This is a perfect spot for one or two families with up to six children (more if the two multi-use rooms are utilized as bedrooms--there are two air mattresses available).

There is lots to do in the area: Although East Andover itself is a very small village, Andover is 7 minutes west on rt 11 (Bank, Pizza Chef, mini mart wine and beer selection), and Proctor Academy (tennis, hiking trails). 15 minutes to the east on Rt. 11 is the small city of Franklin with restaurants and a Hannafords Grocery Store. 10 minutes further east on Rt. 11 is The Tangiers Discount Mall which is surrounded by box stores (Walmart, Hone Depot, Lowes) and lots of franchise restaurants. So the unique benefit is a beautiful and peaceful rural lake setting which is not far from lots of things people seem to want.

Although 18 hole Mojalaki Golf Course (10 minutes) is a nice course and is closest, The Country Club of NH is also open to the public, is 20 minutes, is reasonably priced and has one of the finest layouts in the State. Also in addition to Ragged Mt. Ski Area 25 minutes, Mt. Sunapee Ski Area is 35 minutes, is larger and more varied in terrain. Ice Fishing is very popular on Highland Lake. The White mountains with all their ski areas and summer activities are roughly 1 hour north.
