200 ft of Winnipesaukee Shore with Gorgeous Sunsets in Scenic Roberts Cove

Located in: Alton
Wake up to the call of the nearby loons, have breakfast on the deck, then relax on the dock as you take in the spectacular views, directly west along Roberts Cove to Rattlesnake Island in the distance. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath, recently remodeled 100 year old Winnipesaukee waterfront ranch cottage is situated in a no wake zone at the eastern end of Roberts Cove. This is a great location for swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding, and allows easy access to explore the rest of the lake. The cottage sits on a level 0.3 acre lot, with a 3 slip dock and 190 feet of private waterfront, adjacent to a 35 foot shared sand beach. There are multiple sandy bottom swimming areas along the waterfront including next to the dock (entered by wooden steps from the dock), at the far edge of the property on the point (entered by rock steps and screened by trees for privacy) and at the beach. Try them all and choose your favorite! 1 dock slip is included in the rental so bring your boat, which you can launched from the marina at Roberts Cove Basin just 500 feet away.

This property has the feel of an old time family summer camp and, as you hear the old wood screen door slam behind you and you walk the few steps to the dock to take in the view, it will seem as if you've stepped into an iconic New England summer vacation on the lake. However, despite the remote feel, this property is conveniently located between the bustling summer towns of Alton and Wolfeboro (filled with delicious restaurants and cute shops), with easy access by car or boat to both. We recommend Shibley's at the Pier in Alton and Wolfe's Tavern in Wolfeboro. East of Suez restaurant is also minutes away by car and highly regarded.

2 kayaks, a stand up paddle board and lifejackets are included in the rental so you can spend your days on the lake and explore the cove. Additional stand up paddle boards, kayaks and canoes, as well as jet skis, can be rented in town for the day or the week. And if you're looking for the things to do off the lake, look no further then across the road where you can access a network of snowmobile trails that provide endless hiking and dog walking trails. Starting 50 feet from the front door you can get on the trails to Devil's Den and Merrymeeting Lake. If you prefer to explore on bikes, there are local bike paths and rail trails which wind through some of the most gorgeous parts of the state. And for more challenging hiking, the Belknap Mountains and White Mountains are just a short drive away.

Amenities include: Air conditioning, dehumidifier, small fans, smart TV with Roku connection including Sling account for 35 live channels, and wireless internet. Microwave, electric stove, refrigerator, kettle, toaster, electric drip coffee pot, and french press. Outdoor small charcoal grill and larger propane barbecue. Charcoal and Propane is not included. Also included are 2 kayaks, 1 stand up paddle board, paddles, life jackets, limited yard games and telescope. One bedroom with queen bed, one bedroom with double bed, and couch with pull out memory foam queen bed in living room.

There is a welcome binder which includes useful information and rules for the cottage/property, history of the cottage and cove, and extensive area information including lists of local stores and restaurants, where to rent water sports equipment, information about hiking trails in the immediate area and further out, day trips, and extensive maps for local hiking and paddling.

The property is not insulated and the only heat source is a wood stove.

Blankets and pillows provided. Sheets and towels are not provided- you must bring your own. There is no washer or dryer in the cottage, but there is a laundromat a few miles away in town.

Absolutely no smoking on the property inside or out. Security deposit will be forfeited.

Absolutely no fireworks, sparklers, or similar sparking material of any kind allowed at any time. Security deposit will be forfeited.

Pets limited to a maximum of 2 dogs only (overnight and visiting for the day) with prior approval. No cats. Pet fee is $150/per dog per stay. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture and must be crated if left alone. 2 x 36" crates, baby gates and an x pen are provided. There is a small fenced outdoor dog pen just off the back of the deck.
