This adorable 600 sq. ft. cottage is set back from the water (about 150 ft.) but overlooks pristine Crystal Lake and the Belknap MT range. It was built in 1933 as a wedding present for my parents and has, of course, had many updates since then!


The "Villa" is part of a group of 3 cottages called Crystal Acres, a name given to the property in 1898 by my grandfather. It offers 200’ of beach front with a gorgeous view of the Belknap Mountain range.

During the summer and early fall, there are lots of activities including swimming from our three piers and swimming raft, fishing and boating, shuffleboard and lots of lawn games. We have a paddleboat, rowboat, kayaks and canoes for your use and we even have a kayak for the kids!

During the winter, however, the other 2 rentals on this property are shut down so it's just our house and this advertised cottage that are occupied. Utilities are included.


Crystal Acres provides easy access to everything you need. For Laconia Bike Week fans, we’re right between Weir’s Beach and the Loudon Speedway. For sightseers, all the attractions in the White Mountains are at your fingertips. Got kids and it’s raining? Try Funspot at Weir’s Beach. Shopaholic? Tanger Outlet is only 30 minutes down the road. But most of all, at Crystal Acres you can just stay put, swim, play and relax.

Laconia and Gilford provide business and shopping oportunities and are only 30-35 minutes away. Concord is the capital of NH and only 40 minutes away.


We respect our guests privacy but will happily visit on the beach, in the yard or in their cottage if they invite us. They are always welcome at our house. We live on the property so are here or just a phone call away if they need anything at all.


The signing of a rental agreement is required before arrival.
Included during the summer are free firewood, rowboats, canoes, kayaks and a paddleboat. Of course there is always the 3 piers, the raft and, oh yes, did we mention the lake?

Wireless Internet is available as is cell phone reception for those on the Verizon network. There are no land lines.

Sue and Art were very on top of their game throughout the whole process. Sue's response time is amazing, and the location is amazing as well. During the early morning hours/late afternoon you'll finally understand why it's called Crystal Lake. Initially, we thought we wouldn't be spending much time in the house with a beautiful lake down the hill - but we ended up spending a lot of time in the open kitchen/living room area. We baked, we boiled, we grilled, and we toasted in good company. Aside having to bring your own bedding (not a big deal for me), the house exceeded my expectations with all the extra little things. The lake was far more beautiful than any picture I could have taken (and we took a lot of photos). Canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, row boats, floaties, tubes - the list goes on. However you choose to enjoy the lake, your options are neatly available for you. On the sand, on the piers, in the water - they really do have it all. On a clear night, you can see the Milky Way above. It's truly a sight for city-folk like my friends and I. Grab a couple of lawn chairs (they have like 20), bring the mobile fire pit down to the beach, uncork a bottle of champagne, and celebrate being away from the busy life. I guarantee you, it will be worth it. P.S. Cellular service is spotty at best here. Best to rely on the free wifi (which is pretty fast), or to leave your phone in the car (best idea).

Thanks Peter. We enjoyed your being here. We're glad you had such a good time. Unfortunately Verizon is the only cell phone reception is little section of NH gets. Frustrating for us all. Great idea about fishing rods but don't forget a pre-bought fishing license from the state is required for fishing.

Susan lives on the grounds that have been in her family for over 100 years. She is attentive and delightful. However, this is not a full service with all the frills kind of place! It is not meant to be. I must say though, that the context, in a quiet woods next to a pristine lake is ideal for someone seeking quietude, clean air, and swimming. We had the lake practically to ourselves. The cottage is clean with a well equipped kitchen...important factor, because there are few restaurants in the area. This was a perfect place to rest and restore!

Celia's correct when she says we're not a "full service and frills" kind of place. ( This is rural NH after all!) But we can guarantee that we will do all we can to make your stay as comfortable as possible and fun for your whole family. We also guarantee the pristine lake, free canoes and kayaks (we even have one for the kids!) and lots of relaxation! There are small, family owned restaurants about 15 miles away but I guess you'll have to wait till you get here to learn the secrets of where they are!

My husband, Art and I, are in our 70's and in 2002 retired to our family loved and family owned property on Crystal Lake in Gilmanton IW in the lakes region of NH.

We rent 3 cottages that my grandfather had built in the early 1900's and we just love it here.

Although Art taught high school math in CT for 35 years, he loves teaching skiing in the winter but would cave in without contact to his past hiking buddies (he hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in 2004) and his daily walks and pistachios!

I taught PreK, K and 1st grade for years and then stopped to open an Alteration and Tailoring business which I did for 30 years. I still love to sew but now I make clothes for American Girl Dolls and sell them on Etsy. It's also fantastic having time to read, do aqua aerobics and munch on rice chips and almond butter!

I don't think either of us could get through life without our 2 daughters and 3 granddaughters (plus another one in the "oven"). We are so lucky to have them in our lives.

We don't travel ourselves so live vicariously through the stories of our guests. There is nothing like sitting at the beach with a beer (or water) and talking about life adventures. In the fall there is the outdoor fireplace (well, heck, that's good in the summer too).
