Description from the owner
This is a very special, peaceful place to spend a week--unlike the crowded, noisy waterfront properties listed at most real estate agents. The cabin has a 270 degree pond view with two docks, a canoe and sailfish. And it is among the most affordable on the pond. It offers vacationers the best of both worlds: privacy and gorgeous views, a pond with no motorboats, with a real wilderness feel to it and abundant wildlife--yet a short drive from Boston and close to major tourist attractions and outlet shopping as well as some of the best hiking, biking, fishing and outdoor recreation in New England. It's been in our family for decades, and we try...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Rustic and peaceful
I stayed here as part of a ladies' weekend of artists who wanted a getaway for peace and quiet and friendship. The setting is lovely--we saw a moose in the pond (which is clean, cold, and still swimmable in October if you get the right weather) and a pair of loons. Hot shower and indoor plumbing, of course, but if matching cups and new furniture is your thing, don't stay here--this is a classic "camp," not a fancy Maine cottage. If you're looking for a rustic, sweet, peaceful getaway, this is it! I adore this place.
Bearcamp is nestled on a knoll at the pond's northern edge affording spectacular mountain and water views and sun from the east in the mornings and from the west in the afternoons. The docks are located on both sides, making it easy to launch a resident canoe or swim or fish from either point. The house is fully equipped with a kitchen, large family room with a fireplace and a bedroom and bath in the main cabin; the attached bunkroom has two additional bedrooms that sleep 6 and a bathroom and storage area. Only 5 minutes from us Route 25 and you feel the special remoteness and timelessness that is so characteristic of the Sandwich, New Hampshire region. Walking trails from Bearcamp lead to open country roads for cycling or a well-maintained trail system courtesy of the Wonalancet Outing Club, providing access to Mt. Chocorua or the many companion peaks in the Ossipee Ring. Fall is spectacular but summer is also a great time to be here because of the swimming, boating and quiet reading on the shaded decks attached to the house. If you want sun and solace, park yourself on either dock and enjoy!
