Sunsets with tangerine skies and sunrises that beckon the haunting song of the loon will take you to a place of calm and beauty. The Bass fishing is supreme on this state stocked lake. A canoe will be available when you check in to explore the hidden coves of the lake. Canoe to the Island and take a nice walk or picnic. Upon arrival you will be greeted by your hosts and given the keys to your own piece of stress free comfort and pleasure. Shake off the hectic pace, dress down and kick back you're on vacation and the appointment book is empty. Take a refreshing dip in the lake and let time slow down for a change. Sip a refreshing drink and sit back while you gaze upon the peaceful water 50 feet from your front door. The grill is ready for a scumptous BBQ and family picnic under the shade of a towering hemlock tree. How about a board game or that movie you haven't taken time to see tonight? When you're ready for rest let the crickets lull you to sleep in a comfortable bed. You will ask yourself why didn't I do this before? Its something you will want to do every year!
Northwood is proud of its nine lakes and ponds, its mountain views, miles of country roads, and its many lovely old homes and public buildings.

Perfect Vacation Spot for a Family or a Couple!
October 22, 2013
My husband and I just spent a FABULOUS week at 86 Shore Drive in Northwood, New Hampshire! This lovely property has amazing views of Lake Harvey throughout the house, including beautiful French doors that lead to a nice deck off the master bedroom! The house is roomy enough for a family, but cozy enough for a couple! The convenient location provided the perfect "home base" for several "day trips" to the White Mountains to see waterfalls, covered bridges, & a wonderful dinner train ride, and to Maine for lobster, lighthouses, and beautiful beaches! We also spent several wonderful days simply relaxing in this comfortable, well-furnished lake house... equipped with everything we needed to feel right at home! The property manager (Wayne) is a wonderful neighbor... very friendly and helpful, while honoring our privacy completely! Thank you, Gary and Wayne, for your gracious hospitality! We hope to return to 86 Shore Drive! Blessings! Jack and Candice
house on a lake
July 21, 2013
The home was what it promised. A house on a lake. It was well equipped and had everything you could think of. In fact, it had stuff I didn't realize I needed until I decided to prepare a particular dish. My husband said "it felt as if a friend asked you to watch their house" it was so well equipped. The scenery was very pretty and we brought 2 kayaks and there is a canoe and rowboat there so, with the 6 of us, we were pretty well set. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't the best, rain and cool. I think we had 2 nice days. No fault of the owner, of course. However, this may have been a blessing since there is no air conditioning. Just like the owner said, the catwalk with 2 twin beds is truly meant for little kids. We had a really nice time and more importantly, the kids had a great time. You will have to travel a bit for points of interest, which we didn't mind. Gave us a good opportunity to see more of NH. One negative, there's a pretty sunroom with a hot tub that is off-limits and I think that's a shame. If it's a liability thing then no hot tub is understandable but, in a situation such as ours, rain....it disconnects you from the outside world and would allow you to feel less trapped. All in all, it was a nice time. The home was very well kept, I might add.
A great family vacation

The house was immaculate when we arrived and the care taker was very helpful and easy to get in touch with. Nice property on the lake with room to relax and for the kids to run. Our children ranged from 2 to 12 years old, and they all LOVED the house. My son actually cried the night before we left. We will be back :)

The house was exactly what we were expecting. It was clean and had everything we needed for cooking and they also provide towels for showers. It was also nice having access to a washer and dryer. The lake was beautiful and very peaceful. The property manager lives across the street and anything we needed, he was there to answer our questions. The lake has some great canoeing, fishing, boating. I personally witnessed 4 good size bass caught just off the property.

Perfect Lakeside Retreat
August 8, 2012
We stayed here for three delightful weeks and we're definitely going back next year! The lake is lovely, the home is very comfortable and the caretaker is very, very helpful. We found the house to be in immaculate condition. The king-sized bed is very comfy and the fully applianced kitchen has everything you could ever want. We also enjoyed daily visits from the pair of loons, the duck family, the goose family and a blue heron. This home has it all. The twin beds in the loft are quite difficult to access, but otherwise, this home provides all the comforts of home, but in a lovely, lakeside setting.

Don´t rent this place,specially if you have kids,the bedrooms are small ,also the house is split in two so you don´t get the hole house. Bad experience!!!

The part of the house you get is only the interior pics. Nice glassed-in room, front porch not included. Very small w/undrinkable water. Tiny bathroom and kitchen. Needed a little cleaning from lack of use...cobwebs, dirty towels. Nice view from outside of house. Would return to this general area, but not to this house. Very overpriced for what you get.

Quiet, beautiful view, right on the lake. I don't think you'd fine much more right on the lake than this! We stayed 8 days- really relaxing and great location. Only complaint is better directions to the place need to be provided- arrived at night and it was challenging as there are no numbers, and the street isn't even labeled, so describing to park by the bear statue or some clues would have been great. Otherwise, it is a gorgeous area, and the house has a great view.

Comfortable, restful, great place for kids and dogs. Good value. Fun time fishing. Nice people, nice neighbors. Fireworks were spectacular! Everything needed was there (except a can opener). We'll be back.
This place is lovely, the loons, the calm water, all the accomodations that we need!
