Ossipee Lake House from the water.  The water here was a little over knee deep standing on the sand.

Spacious naturally sandy lake bottom gently slopes from shore for hundreds of feet for comfort and safety and avoids steep drop-offs and rocks often found at other locations. Relax in serenity in this modern and spacious 4200 sq. ft vacation villa. No lake house is closer to the lake than Ossipee Lake House. The many features of this fully furnished and equipped home include: Large deck next to water with stunning lake and mountain views. Huge great room with fieldstone fireplace has two stories of windows overlooking lake and views of mountains. Kitchen has electric cooktop, self-cleaning oven, refrigerator with through-the-door ice and water dispensing, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, Jenn-Air indoor grill and griddle in the island counter. Full sets of dishes, drinking containers, cookware, flatware, servingware, and utensils. Your water comes from our exclusive private deep rock (artesian) well (not lake water) and is double filtered to provide clear refreshing water without added chlorine or fluoride. Many warm weather and winter activities exist in the area. After you rent the lake house, I can refer you to the Ossipee Lake House web site that describes them and maps them. Year round pleasures include summer water sports (swimming, boating, water skiing, canoeing, kayaking), hiking and biking out the door, golf is less than a 10 minute drive away and walk to tennis courts in 10 minutes (or a 1 minute drive). Bring your boat (or rent one from a nearby marina) and use our mooring. Let us know your plans so that we can arrange for your using the mooring. You will be in the heart of the region for New Hampshire's famous gorgeous fall foliage colors. Winter activities abound including skiing and snowboarding (including night skiing) and indoor skating 10 minutes away and cross country skiing, ice skating, and snowmobiling just out the door. Snowmobile from Ossipee Lake House directly to groomed trails leading to the entire New Hampshire snowmobile trail system. Although we do not list them as sleeping areas, our favorite sleeping areas are the two large sofas in the great room. Being on them in the summer with the sliding glass doors open (and the screens closed) and listening to the nearby waves lapping against the shore and the calls of the loons is absolutely magical. Sleeping on the sofas in the winter in front of the fireplace (with the fireplace screen in place) creates special memories as the fire dies down and the embers glow in the dark. Our children and grandchildren have tremendously enjoyed the smooth natural sandy lake bottom with its gentle slope. Please, carefully supervise children in the water. Also, carefully supervise children on the balcony leading to the upstairs bedrooms and and also when they are on the deck, which is above ground level. Easy to use electronic lock so that you do not need to get a key nor worry about losing or returning a key. Prior to arrival, a custom entry code will be emailed to the primary renter, who may then wish to send it to others who may be arriving at different times. The exercise room has professional quality equipment. The Concept 2 rowing machine has upgraded electronics and new seat bearings for smooth operation. The Olympic weight set with the bench press and squat rack and the cross-over cable machine are locked to inhibit use by people not familiar with using this equipment. A special wavier and deposit are needed to use the weight set and cross-over cable machine. Summer breezes off the lake and shade from tall trees naturally cool Ossipee Lake House as fresh air wafts through the openable windows in every room and the wall of sliding glass doors that face the lake. Forced air heat quickly and thoroughly warms the lake house, even on the coldest days. The fireplace's energy conserving insert allows viewing the fire and blows clean warm air into the great room as you watch the flames. We provide a generous starting supply of wood for the fireplace. We supply consumables so that you do not need to shop for them or bring them including: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel in all bathing areas, soap, dish and dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, paper towels toilet paper. Close to excellent coffee and cinnamon rolls and restaurants for breakfast and dinner. Beds for 12 guests in 5 bedrooms and a bunk bed room, 4 bathrooms. Safety features include wirelessly networked smoke/CO alarms (when one alarms they all alarm) in all sleeping areas, the hallways, the great room, and the basement (which is locked for guest safety). Also the bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry room have emergency lights plugged into outlets and those lights can be used as emergency only flashlights in case power is interrupted. Fire extinguishers are in the kitchen and by the fireplace. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 060615More

About the neighbourhood
Ossipee Lake House sits at the very edge of Ossipee Lake in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and at the gateway to the White Mountains. No lake house is closer to the water than Ossipee Lake House, making it very easy to enjoy the lake. Our location on the Long Sands section of Ossipee Lake allows you comfortably walk 100s of feet into the lake along the gently sloping smooth naturally sandy lake bottom. That sandy lake bottom makes it easy to use the water without the slippery rocks or steep drop-offs commonly found at other lakes. Excellent hiking and biking out the door compliment the water sports that come with being next to the lake. Kayak and canoe on the lake or its tributary rivers or through the coves and bays accessible through the nearby outlet of the main lake. Besid...
