2 BR Vintage Cottage Newfound Lake - Private Beach
Description from the owner
This is our family cottage on the water's edge with private sandy beach on crystal clear Newfound Lake in Hebron NH, on the west shore so you can see the sunrise and the glow of sunset on the mountains across the lake. This is a vintage cottage but it has everything for a great family vacation and like visiting "Grandma's Beach House". It is rustic and campy in a private setting with 100' of frontage on Newfound Lake. Private beach and sitting area with a deck and an excellent location for fishing, canoeing, kayaking. There are two quality sea kayaks, life jackets, paddles, a canoe, sand chairs, beach chaise lounges, inflatable tubes/toys and inflatable boat all available. The crystal clear water provides a excellent swimming with a waterfront deck that overlooks a private sandy beach and swim area. An excellent place for small children with a gradual slope on the beach and a very protected cove. There is large picnic table and gas grill overlooking deck and beach for outdoor dining. There is both a screened in porch as well as a lakeside deck that both offer great views of the lake while sipping your morning coffee or evening cocktail. There is wireless internet and cable TV. In the evening, light the tiki torches and sit deckside with cocktails, enjoy a bonfire lakeside, make smores and listen to the loons. The calling of the loons is a beautiful sound in the evenings. A private lakeside on Newfound Lake is a vintage vacation few get to experience. The Lake views, the mountain views, the private sandy beach, the evening campfires, moon beams across the lake and the ducks and loons swimming by, the outdoor living just does not get any better then this.

2 BR Vintage Cottage Newfound Lake - Private Beach Hebron, New Hampshire
Additional Location Information
The cottage is located on the West shore of Newfound Lake in the town of Hebron, NH. It is situated down a private dirt road in a protected cove. The view from the porch is looking at the widest part of the lake in a very peaceful and quiet part of the lake. This glacial lake is a beauty in the middle of New Hampshire and is 2.5 miles wide and 7 miles long, reaching depths of up to 180 feet, with 22 miles of shoreline. The water, fed by eight springs, is considered the most pristine in the state. The Lakes Region of New Hampshire is such a wonderful vacation spot for so many people year after year. Newfound Lake had many camps. The greatest impact on Hebron from the establishment of these camps, especially the ones that survive to this day, was unintentional. Large areas of shoreline and many acres of surrounding land have been kept in natural condition because of these camps. Further, in several cases, the land is now locked away in perpetual trusts that insures that these many acres remain forever wild. Between 1925 and 1945 tourism was a full blown industry at Hebron. The great camps that owned so much of the lakeshore on the north end kept the tourism activities and population density in Hebron much lower than that on the south end. This is still true today. Whereas, cottages and bungalows dotted the southern half, the northern half of the lake was limited to campgrounds, inns and private camp complexes. We are blessed to be in this special part of Newfound Lake! Newfound Lake has been referred to as New Hampshire's best kept secret.
