      The Lake House has spectacular private water frontage and is furnished for those with discerning taste. It is a newly renovated three bedroom, two bath home on a private peninsula on North Pond only 6 miles from Bethel Village. The Lake House is only a short drive to The White Mountains, Grafton Notch State Park, area waterfalls, wonderful hiking, golf, biking, canoeing, kayaking, snow-mobile trails, cross-country skiing, or a short drive to skiing at Sunday River and Mount Abram Ski Areas. Your Host is a PSIA certified level 3 Ski Pro and staff trainer at Sunday River. Private coaching is available and should be arranged well in advance.

     The Lake House sits on a private peninsula with 270 degree water views and is surrounded by conservation land on both sides. Your arrival down a long gravel drive will bring you to this pristine setting. Granite walls, steps and landscaping surround the blue-stone patio leading up to the front entry. The yard is very private with a large lawn area toward the water side. Our guests will find plenty of space for yard games, volley ball, badminton, croquet, etc. Bring your boat and tie up to our 20 foot aluminum dock. We are also happy to provide an Old Town Camper Canoe and two kyaks for paddling the three inter-connected ponds. (savings of approx. $100 /day or more) ( not to be removed by vehicle from the property) We supply paddles and a variety of small to large life jackets. (not suitable for small children or larger adults) There is a shallow sandy area to enter the water and there are wonderful mountain views of Bucks Ledge to the east.

Relax on the upper covered deck or on the lower level patio area. There is a dining area on both levels as well as comfortable seating areas and a Weber gas grill on the lower level. You may also choose to sit and enjoy the large outdoor stone fireplace for an evening camp fire. There is swimming and boating available or just relax and read a book while listening to the loons call. If you are lucky, our resident bald eagle will land in one of the large pines on the property.


The house is contemporary post and beam home and has been totally renovated. Our home features two master suites with king size beds. It is tastefully decorated with a pleasant mix of contemporary furnishings, including oak tables, comfortable leather seating and custom made shaker cherry master suite beds, night stands and dressers. The original Deck House has been custom finished by the owner/builder with high end finishes, custom tile work and large windows to capture the water views.



      At the lake side of the house there is an elevated covered mahogany deck with cedar railings and stainless steel cable that allows an unobstructed view while providing a retreat from the hot summer sun. There are two steamer lounge chairs, two zero gravity reclining chairs and a Pottery Barn mahogany table with 6 chairs.
There is also a covered patio below with 5 Adirondack chairs, a teak dining set for 4 and a relaxing hammock as well. In the evenings enjoy sitting at the camp fire in the large stone fireplace .
