About the property

3 Bedroom 1 & 1/2 Baths Sleeps 10+

Sip your morning coffee from the screened porch overlooking the serene lake. Relax morning through evening on the lake front deck that enjoys spectacular sunset views. Swim and fish off the dock in warm lake waters. Our 3-Bedroom year round home sits on the shores of peaceful Belleau Lake.

You will be amazed at how open and spacious, yet warm and inviting our home is. When you walk through our front door, you will enter the fully equipped kitchen, which is sure to meet all of your cooking, baking and serving needs. The open floor plan allows for the kitchen to flow into the dining area and living room. Great for family gatherings and entertaining! The living room and dining area boasts cathedral ceilings, with 2 large sky lights, allowing for the natural sunlight to spill in. The dining area seats 8+. The living room features a wood burning fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa and lots of comfortable seating, along with cable TV, DVD, VCR, & stereo. Stretch out on one of the two Yogibo bean bags.

Off the living room are french doors that lead to the spacious screened porch and large deck overlooking the lake. Also off the living room is the master bedroom on the left, which features a queen bed and attached half bath. Another bedroom to the right, with a queen bed and twin cot. The washer/dryer and full bath are located between the two bedrooms.

On the lower level is the third bedroom with twin bunk beds and a futon that sleeps 2. There is also a large family room with pool table, Foosball table, dart board, bar, pellet stove, sitting area with queen sleeper sofa and chair. Walk-out to stairs leading to the deck with patio furniture and dock for swimming and fishing from. We also provide 2 kayaks, 1 stand-up paddle board and life jackets in many sizes. Vachon Beach, which is a private beach for lake residents, is located just a short walk away.

For the times when you just don't feel like cooking, there is the Blue Bay Seafood and Steaks Restaurant and Bar less than a half mile away on Province Lake Road. Plus Jim's Wheelhouse Pizza in the same area. The Knotty Pine Restaurant and Poor People's Pub are 10 minutes down the road. There is also the Country Goods and Groceries store less than a half mile away on Province Lake Road, which sells pizza and subs and has all of your grocery needs, along with beer and wine and some of the best ice cream in the area! The New Deal grocery store and gas station is in the same area. If it's a great breakfast you want, try Cindy's just across the street.

The lake isn't just for summer vacation. There are many antique shops to explore, fresh fruit to be picked at local farms, leaf peeping in the Fall and skiing, sledding and snowmobiling in winter. These all make for fun family day trips and memories to last a lifetime. We are approximately 45 minutes to North Conway. There, you can shop the many outlet stores, and other local hand-craft, antique and gift shops, ride one of the area's scenic train rides, visit the many family attractions, such as Story Land and Santa's Village, and ski at one of the many resorts in the area. If it's golf you enjoy, Province Lake Golf Course is just a 10 minute scenic drive away. There you can enjoy a round of golf, then dine at The Restaurant at Province Lake Golf located in the clubhouse. Make sure you save room for an ice cream from Sweet Spot Ice Cream located just outside the clubhouse. For those who have snowmobiles, Belleau Lake is located on Corridor 19, which links you with trails throughout New Hampshire, Maine and Canada. You can travel to North Conway or Lake Winnepesaukee for the day!

Come enjoy our home away from home, create wonderful memories and see why we fell in love with peaceful Belleau Lake.

About Lisa and John Lyons

John and I grew up in Massachusetts and have been enjoying the lakes regions of Maine and New Hampshire for many years now. Our home on Belleau Lake is our 'home away from home'. A place we come to get away from it all and relax!

Lisa and John Lyons purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa and John Lyons chose Lakes Region

John and I have been renting a home on Belleau Lake for the past 8 years or so. Our children grew up coming here.. We have friends who own here and when this house came up for sale, we decided we wanted to make this a permanent part of our lives. We know you will love it too!

What makes this house unique

When John and I saw this house, we fell in love with the openness of the rooms, along with the cathedral ceilings and wonderful screened porch overlooking the lake... The sun sets across the lake making for some stunning views. It's just so peaceful and serene.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your lovely vacation home. The kids loved the kayaks and the paddle board. Learning to play pool was so much fun. Your cottage is very well equipped with linens, towels and kitchen tools. We had a campfire with s'mores of course. We fished every single day and caught tons of bluegills. The 3 big bass that hang out under the dock eluded us :( The convenience of nearby shopping was wonderful. Thank you for renting to us. We'll miss your cottage and lovely Belleau Lake.

Beautiful inside and out! Very comfy.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to get together! The house was wonderful with plenty of room. We had 6 adults and 5 children. The kitchen had everything we needed and the oversized grill made cooking for everyone easy. The lake and view are awesome. Peaceful, fun. Lisa was easy to communicate with and eased any concerns I had. Would most definitely stay here again!

This was a weather-proof vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a weekend, unfortunately the weather wasn't great. But with the screen porch that's directly connected to the house - we still got our lake views and fresh air. Downstairs the pool table and dartboard kept us entertained at night- it was a fun place to stay even in the rain!

Great house with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a party of 10. The upstairs is really nice with a large kitchen and family room. A great cable package and plenty of places to sit for a meal. The downstairs is great if you have kids or just have a group that likes games. You have a pool table, Foosball table, and a dart board. We were there in November so it was a bit to cold to go in the lake, but it's an amazing view and there is some great outdoor space right on the lake. There's a great pizza place only a few minutes away. Very secluded spot.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. Comfortable sleeping arrangements for many guests. Great views of the lake and easy access to fishing and swimming. The house came with everything we needed and more. Shopping center was 7 miles away which was a nice scenic drive. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful and quiet vacation.

Beautiful Spot; Great for Families

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Belleau Lake. The house is clean and well supplied. Our teenagers appreciated having the downstairs to themselves. The lake itself is beautiful and there were many days we had it almost to ourselves. Loved having use of the kayaks and paddle board. The house and its hosts are definitely 5 stars. The only drawback for us was that East Wakefield is not near many attractions. When the sun was out, we were in paradise. On our one rainy day, we had to be creative to find something to do, but I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing, family-oriented time.
