This is perfection! Sharing this lake home with two other families. We paddle on the glass- like lake first thing in the morning, then enjoy our coffee from the upper deck. Swim, paddle, swim, nap or read in the hammock... Repeat. Kids never even notice they have stepped back in time with no TV or gaming systems. When we want to step outside of our piece of paradise there are long walks around the bays on quiet roads, we hiked Piper Trail up Chocorua with the bigger kids (strenuous, 40 minutes north) and Boulder Loop (easy, 70 minutes north) with the younger ones followed by a dip in Kangamangus under the covered bridge,... rewarded with a BBQ at Smoke House! At night we usually grill even though the kitchen is a large eat-in kitchen fully stocked, and cook s'mores in the beach fire pit! The canoes and rowboat were a nice addition to our paddle boards;). Clean, open floor plan and room for all of us comfortably! Already booked for next year!

My favorite place to be. The cabin is cozy yet can comfortably fit 3-5 families. We went with three other families all with babies, and my parents and sister came for a day as well. The kitchen looks out over the water, there's a nice screened in porch, deck, outdoor shower, grill, dock, floating dock, camp fire, and a large beach front. We brought our paddle boards for the week as well. There was plenty to do, but most importantly it was relaxing. Room for everyone to be together or do their own thing. Perfect. (The lake is super quite during the week)

Perfect Unplugged Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! The lakehouse was clean with a nice big kitchen and living room and 5 bedrooms. The master bedroom on the 2nd floor is huge and has its own private deck!

Beautiful pink sunrises. The calls of loons. Coffee on the upper deck! We were fortunate to have beautiful, warm sunny days and cool nights. We canoed and swam to the island in the middle of the lake. We relaxed and read books! (There is no TV!) We sunned on the float. We did several day hikes in the White Mountains-Mt Chocorua was spectacular with 360 degree views and Champney Falls on the way back down. (The falls make an icy foot bath!) The Falls trail head is about a 40min. drive from the lakehouse. The hike takes 2.5-3hours each way. Back at the lake, we rewarded ourselves with afternoon naps in the hammock and on the screen porch! In the evenings we used the grill on the deck for easy dinners. And then gathered around the firepit on the beach for a campfire and smores! Great place for families to re-connect and enjoy the lakes and mountains!

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming here for years and my whole family agrees it is their favorite place on earth. Clean, spacious, all the amenities of home and more. Walk out the door and 10 steps later you're floating in the clean water of Leavitt Bay. Grill and eat dinner on the deck overlooking the lake and end the night with a peaceful campfire. Beautiful sunrises. Close to North Conway for outlet shopping on rainy days and just a short drive to the mountains. I've recommended this property to many friends who were thrilled to rent a week here. Can't wait for our next summer vacation.

Awesome relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing week. Even with 10 people we never felt crowded. The cabin is very spacious. We spent our days on the water and evenings around the firepit or on the screened in porch. The kids spent hours jumping off the float. We really enjoyed paddling around the lake in the canoes and rowboat. The lake was very quiet most days. We'll definitely be back!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great 5 br cabin with open concept common area. Plenty of room for our 2 families with 3 bunk rooms for kids. No TV but we were outside all day and night between swimming fishing waterskiing and then campfires every night. Leavitt Bay is one of the smaller ones off Ossipee which was perfect for our littlest swimmers who appreciated he shallow calm waters edge. We also golfed 15 minutes away at Province Lake which was beautiful and easy to get tee times
