About the Owner

I purchased the lot and designed the house, cleared the lot and built it the following year. There is about 100' of lake frontage with breath taking views facing south. The lot includes a marsh and a bridge was built so that all the shore line can be walked on and seating varies with access to other side of marsh. I am very proud to take guests out to my place for swimming and cookouts..

Cow Island Lake House

Tuftonboro Lake Winnipesaukee Area

We escaped for an entire month!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Will's house for the entire month of July last summer and it was great. It was a true escape from things. The dock was perfect for my 28' Formula. The water is clear and calm. Orchard Cove is beautiful. The intimacy with the water is excellent - the patio is right on the water and you look out over the water while you're grilling. The screened-in porch is excellent on those rainy evenings, and the fire pit is outstanding.

Things to keep in mind: it's really a 1BR + a loft, the toilet in the bathroom is a composting toilet (but there is an outhouse as well), and the kitchen sink is actually on the back porch. These things were no big deal for a handful of 30-something professionals, but if you have small children, they might add a level of complexity.

In addition, Will is super easy to work with and we stay in touch to this day. I would go back in a heartbeat...and plan on doing so!

Owner's Response: MATT, Thank you for staying at my place and I appreciate the reviews from you. I hope next season you can reserve a month again. You are a gentleman and left the house immaculate. Will


From the Owner

It is so private and peaceful with tons of wildlife to observe and you can walk the entire island because the middle is town owned. Any fallen wood can be used for a camp fire in the fire pit.

Wolfeboro is the oldest resort town in America,and full of events and restaurants fireworks golf etc.Its just a 10 minute boat ride from my dock at Cow Island.There is a large town dock in Tuftonboro just a few minutes from the lake house with groceries etc. Ps. you need a boat to transport to and from the island. Its only a few minutes to the main land dock and stores.

Additional information about rental rates

  • Pet Fee $100.00

$300 deposit for one week stay, two weeks prior to arrival date I receive the 1500. the security deposit is refunded upon inspection of property.

Nightly Rate: $225 - $250

Weekly Rate: $800 - $1500

Monthly Rate: $2800 - $5600

A $300. security deposit reserves your vacation and will be returned following the owners inspection of the lake house. There is off season rates and prime time rates. Most of the summer is 1500. And off season prices are a real deal. Well behaved pets are welcome for a small weekly fee. I do not place my pets in kennels and this is way less expensive plus they are part of the adventure.i am willing to negotiate if you reserve early. The best rental times are in the fall when you have the lake to yourself. The lake house is situated in a deep protective cove. I just had a new 40'x6' solid dock installed.The rental needs to be paid in full at least two weeks before rental day.
