Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps
This original 1940 New Hampshire camp is situated on the Lake Winnipesaukee facing west across the broads on Tuftonboro Neck. Built out of timbers felled during the hurricane of 1938 (thus my grandmother named it Hurricane Ledge), this property has a rustic, quaint feel. Enjoy swimming, canoeing, sitting on the water-side deck or porch enjoying breath-taking sunset views. The house has a wonderful views of the lake, particularly at sunset and Very quiet location; 15 minute drive to Wolfeboro, NH.
We rent by the week, June, July, August, and Sept; $1025 per week plus cleaning fee, taxes and $400.00 deposit.
***We have an other rental property next door that sleeps 4. We LOVE to rent these properties together. Please inquiry for possible discounts. See link. SEE LISTING #53124 'Cozy, Rustic Cottage on Lake Winnipesaukee in Lake Winnipesaukee'

Why Karen Hutchins-Keim chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area
My grandmother purchased the land where our rental property is now in 1940 from a neighbor. There she built, often with her own two hands, one of the houses on the property with wood from trees felled during the 1938 hurricane that hit New England. She passed away in 2008, but the home remains a central feature of our family. I, my sister, and four cousins have been coming to 'the lake' for our entire lives and my aunt even lives down the road.

A Step Back in Time
This classic cozy camp reminded me of my childhood at our camp in the Maine woods! It was rustic, yet perfect for an experience in an early Winni cottage. We had lived on the lake for over twenty years, but we had not stayed on this side of Lake. A step back in time with a relaxing porch, complete with porch screen door that also brought back a "sound" memory. Adequate kitchen, reading spots, a no fuss,easy, laid back place for recharging after a busy year. Recommended for family or couple but young children may need a more gradual beach for their water activities.
A treasure on Winnepasakie
The week we spent in this cottage in this spot on the lake was wonderful! It was quiet, private and just perfect. This cottage is exactly what a summer lakeside cottage should be; rustic, charming and simple. The water is incredible, as are the views! Woke to the sound of loons each morning......The cottage is very well equipped, comfortable and has a gas grill which is very convenient. The nearby town of Wolfeboro is fantastic and has everything you could possibly need while on vacation; amazing restaurants, great ice cream and a quaint little downtown to stroll about when you are not enjoying the serenity of the cottage!! We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for sharing your cottage, Karen! You have a treasure on Lake Winnepasakie!
