This quaint property boasts an 1890 farmhouse and small cottage perched in a private cove. The main house offers 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The cottage has 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath. This enchanting Homestead is the perfect retreat for family, couples and small groups.
MAIN HOUSE: This farmhouse sleeps up to 9. Gorgeous lake and mountain views from two of the three terraces. Sunset dinner parties on the screened terrace, morning coffee on the north terrace, or catch a little morning sun on the east terrace with a view of the gardens. The open-concept living, dining and reading nook, with an oversized fireplace, is ideal for large and intimate gatherings. Furnishings are predominately antique. Premium kitchen appliances include an induction cooktop and convection oven. Spend the day on the property's private beach with a fire pit, swimming raft and a dock for your boat.
COTTAGE: This charming bungalow that sleeps 3-5. Enjoy intimate cove views from the screened porch, an updated kitchen and an open concept living and dining room with a wood stove.
The main house is approximately 2,300 square feet, and the cottage is just over 1,100 square feet. The cottage, sited behind the main house, has a clear view of the field, beach, and lake.
In addition to the private beach and dock, the grounds include a field of wild strawberries, blueberries, and wildflowers. The surrounding woods and miles of stone walls envelop the property on three sides, for total privacy. The house has a country garden. We are happy to send more photos of the houses and property.
The lake is perfect for swimming, kayaking, sailing, and low impact motor boats (the north dock of the boat house is yours to use). There is access to a canoe and kayaks. Numerous hiking and walking options throughout the Squam Range are a must -- the trailhead to our favorite quick morning and sunset hike, Eagle Cliff, is just a 10-minute drive.
Two delightful towns, Sandwich and Center Harbor, are just a few miles away with unique restaurants, local farm stands, shopping and groceries. The main farmhouse and cottage are available for rent. A converted barn (not for rent) is also on the property.
We request a 2-week minimum in July.
The loons are calling you.
Our family has been loving Squam Lake for 6 generations. We gather to enjoy holidays, weekends and the changing seasons. We offer this magical spot to families who return year after year to enjoy the lake and mountains.
Autumn Acres Family purchased this farmhouse in 1890
Our property is an old farm perched on a hill at the edge of the lake. The site includes a grand field with native wildflowers, wild strawberries and low bush blueberries. Woods and ferns surround the property.
This is a private and quiet setting with water and mountain access and views and outdoor activities abound.
Squam summers are filled with beach days, water sports, kayaking, boating, hiking and gorgeous sunsets.
June is gorgeous - one of our favorites - a peaceful lake, a peony garden in full bloom, and very few bugs.
New Hampshire is known for it's leaf peeper falls - and Autumn Acres (thus the name) is no exception. The property and surrounding mountains are a blaze with russet reds, salmon pinks and vibrant yellow landscapes. And the water is usually calm enough for kayaking.
Some of our favorite winter memories are winters of sledding down our hill, ice skating, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing. Hot soup and sherry by the fire. And of course there are downhill options an hour or so away.
This is a great house for holidays, vacations, or just getting away from it all. Magic memories await.
We had a family reunion holiday at Autumn Acres for two weeks, in the main house and the nearby cottage. The house and cottage were immaculate, and we were assisted by a very nice housekeeper and outside handyman. The property is extremely well kept and equipped with everything needed to enjoy the lake, the house and all manner of vacation activities. The kitchen is fully equipped with high end appliances and and attractive cooking, dinner and serving materials. Rather than roughing it on the lakeside, we felt indulged in a beautiful property in a glorious setting. The property is accurately described on the website, was clean and very well maintained, and every issue, however, small, was quickly addressed by our host. The property is only a short distance from shops and entertainment but still very quiet and secluded from commercial development or other properties. We would definitely recommend this property and would readily return.
Spectacular! - All it is advertised as and more! This property is perfectly maintained, immaculately clean, and clearly loved by those who care for it. Every detail for guest comfort has been carefully thought of and executed. Just unpack and enjoy the lake and lake views from this pristine setting on a private cove. By far the best accommodations we have had in 45+ years of vacationing on Squam Lake. Barbara is delightful to work with and extremely responsive.
Autumn Acres is located on idyllic Squam Lake in a secluded cove between Center Harbor and Sandwich, at the edge of the Squam Range.
