Description of the East Wakefield vacation cabin rental
Lovely lakefront log cabin home in picturesque Wakefield, NH with 100' sandy beach, on a peaceful cove on clean 700 acre Balch Lake. Three (3) private bedrooms (all with queen beds), a downstairs 'kids kabin' with 3 daybeds with trundle beds sleeping 6 (or more if needed w/ add'l. mattresses available), 2 1/2 baths, with two propane fireplaces, an outdoor hot tub, a covered outdoor deck looking out over the lake with a Weber gas grill, & a Tiki hut on our private sandy beach.

In the summer, come and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the loons, as well as canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, jet skiing, motor boating or simply swimming in the clear lake water. Our lake features a full service marina. Sit on the beach or the dock relaxing and taking in the sun, or playing bocce on the beach. A top rated golf course (Province Lake Golf course) is only 10 minutes away. In the evenings, make a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows under the starry nights!
Area Information
We are set on a quiet cove on Balch Lake, away from all the boating noise. Easy access to main part of the crystal clear lake, where there is great jet skiing, tubing, swimming and fishing. There is only 1 home close by, but our beach is very private and secluded. There are no beaches across the cove, as those homes have no beach front areas at all. So, you can feel comfortable just tanning or relaxing on the beach or the dock or floating in the lake on a tube, imbibing your favorite drink.

Once done with all the outdoor activities (be it in the sun or on the mountains), we have a wonderful 6 person outdoor hot tub that is available year round. Nothing like it after a hard day of skiing the blues or blacks on the mountains in the crisp, NH winter air or after a tough day out on the water or beach, swimming and tanning. Great way to unwind.

We are 45 minutes from the Portsmouth Circle and very easy to get to up Rte 16; just under 2 hours from downtown Boston. Once here, we have space for 5-6 cars to park down at the cabin. We also have a 2 car garage up the hill, which is used more for storage, although lots of parking there as well, if needed. We have over an acre of land on our property.

2 convenience stores 5 minutes in either direction on Rte 153. Large Hannaford's grocery store 15 minutes away in Ossipee. Poor People's Pub is a nice local bar and pretty good food as well -- 10 minutes away in downtown Wakefield. Miss Wakefield's Diner and Hen House are 10 and 5 minutes away - both serve fantastic breakfasts if you do not want to cook (great pancakes, omelettes, et al).

Other Activities: Boating, canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing --- all available on our lake. Local marina allows people to bring in their own boats. We provide canoe and kayak and some flotation devices to use. Our private beach is nice and sandy and approx. 100' long. Nice and gradual slope for little children. And you can jump off our dock into the lake. We are located in a nice, tranquil cove which does not get much boat traffic, so nice and quiet. Great to just jump on a flotation device and grab some rays with a drink of your choosing (we have a refrigerator in our tiki hut on the beach). And nothing better than building a fire on the beach at night under the stars next to the water.

Golf: Province Lake -- 10 minutes away on Rte 153 North; great course in wonderful shape

Indian Mound -- 20 minutes away on Rte 16 North; nice course

Kingswood -- 25 minutes away in Wolfeboro

Ski: King Pine -- 25 minutes away; great family mountain.

Cranmore -- 50 minutes away; more challenging

Attitash -- 65 minutes away; two great peaks

Wildcat and Black Mountain -- 70 minutes

Shawnee Peak -- 75 minutes
