Little Camp Island on Lake Winnipesaukee is located east of Bear Island and north and west of the Forties. It is approx. 2 miles from mainland. Accessible only by boat, this island retreat is very private. Little Camp Island has only two other cottages on it, which are not visible. There is a large private dock with mooring whips and anchor lines, with an adjoining sundeck and a mooring ball. The dock is best suited for one boat. Rental is for adults 25 and over and their children.
Built in 1963, the cottage faces north with a spectacular view of the White Mountains. Enjoy both sun and moon rises and sets from anywhere, as the cottage is situated on the northern tip of the island with exposure on the West, North, and East. The sun greets you each morning as it rises over the east beach and across the 'broads.' The moon rises over the east beach as well. The sun sets to your west while you enjoy dining on the large wrap around deck.
On-site toys include a canoe, two kayaks, and a badminton space, as well as swimming all day and night!
The bedrooms are comprised of the first floor master with queen size bed and guest with full size bed and a very large loft with three twin beds and one full size bed up the spiral staircase.
The north point beach includes a stone deck and chiminea surrounded by a deck and hammock. Wild blueberry bushes offer berries in late July and August, great for pancakes and muffins.
Clearest Water On Lake Winnipesaukee. You have found the seclusion and change of pace in life you need for the perfect vacation! This is the most lovely property on Lake Winnipesaukee; your family will never want to leave. The cottage is very private and the water is the cleanest on the lake, as Little Camp borders the 'Broads' which help keep the water moving and clear. There is no milfoil which is prevalent along the shores of the lake! Because of its remoteness it lacks some of the modern conveniences which adds to its rustic charm. For example, electricity for the camp is provided by a generator which pumps water to the house and supplies limited electricity (bathroom lights, a few sockets for a hair dryer, a spot light helps light the path to the dock, etc.). There is no A/C (cottage is very open with large glass sliders throughout which open to cool lake breezes). Kerosene lamps are used for lighting (though the days are long), propane fuels the kitchen utilities: refrigerator and stove. The lake-stone fireplace throws heat on those rare rainy cool days (firewood included), there is no TV. A solar array powers ceiling fans in the bedrooms and bedside fans in the loft, as well as providing 12 volt receptacles for recharging cell phones and other electronic devices.
For our families, it has always been a place for fun and togetherness without the distractions of modern life. Stow your cellphones and electronics away, say goodbye to the hustle and bustle of everyday life and go for a swim, paddle around the lake, lay in the hammock enjoying a good read - reacquaint yourself with yourself and make lifelong memories with family and friends.
The house is most comfortable for 2-4 adults over 25 and their children, totaling no more than 9 including children.
This is a non-smoking, drug free, no pet home and property for adults 25 and over.
On Site Inspections: On site inspections are welcome. If you are planning on being out on the lake please send us a message with a rough estimate of the time frame and we will gladly arrange to meet you at your convenience to give you a tour.Get the full listing »
