Attached are pictures -- some from the air -- which show my place on
an island NOT Connected by bridge so you must have your own boat!
Another picture shows the cottage and the larger, longer (70') crib
dock, which is on the left, can't be seen. No problem with any boats
coming is as we have no underwater obstacles.

This charming island cottage has 3 BRs (back one has two double bunk
beds and sleeps 4, the middle one has a double bed, and the
MasterBR has double bed. There is 1 Bath with toilet, sink and
clawfoot bathtub with shower. There is also an outdoor under-the-stars
tub for two heated by its own On-demand water heater. There is a large
living/DR with field
stone working fireplace plus an irish Waterford wood stove which heats
the place very well, when needed. The kitchen has a new electric range
with 2 ovens, refrig, and dishwasher. On the back porch is a 2nd
refrig for beverages, a freezer, a washing machine and
a 220volt dryer. There is a phone for
local calls, cable TV (my internet is cable wifi,) so you would want
your own cell phone or a calling card for long distance calls.

I have two canoes, a small 14' boat fiberglass boat, a paddle boat and
and a Sail-Fish small sail boat.

Do you have boating experience? You will have to dock your boat at the
public dock on Meredith Neck at Browns Boat Basin, or the one on the
Neck at Cattle Landing, both of which have public parking for cars and
boats (3 hr limit for boats but a call to Meredith police will provide
an extension).

The island lot is 140' with the docks at each end. I have a gas grill
and smoker which is great for smoking salmon and trout. I have great
neighbors as well. We use the lake water but have a UV purifier,
though many people do drink the lake water without purifying it out
where we are, as it is very clean there. Great swimming and
smallmouth bass, salmon, and trout fishing in my "front yard."

We have a TV/DVD/VHS cassette player.

The home was built in 1931. I am not planning on listing it with
realtor to rent to unknown tenants.

We mostly live outdoors in warm weather and have picnic tables and
Adrondack chairs. as well as several hammocks.

The lot is level and has a rocky shore with only a very small beach by
the dock, depending on the lake level. I'm on the East side of Bear
Island looking out at 6-Miile island, a bit to my left front, Ozone
straight ahead, and Dollar island to my right front. There is a large
green field with no buildings next door with
horseshoe court and room for play. (Shows from the aireal view).

It is about a half mile hike on beautiful trails to the stone
interdenominational church (no electricity in the church but a pump
organ and candle-light), St. Johns on the Lake, which has services
July and August. There are no roads or vehicles on the Island and it
is an incredibly peaceful place to vacation, play, fish, swim, relax.
The island is about 5 miles long, and a mile wide. It is the largest
Island on Lake Winni not connected by bridge.

I used to keep my boat at Fays which is a 15 min. 4.5 mile ride, but
Browns Boat Basin and the
public dock there is closer. You can go to a small general store
at nearby "Y Landing" for essentials, newspapers, gas, etc.

I love it there -- a bit of heaven here on earth to me!



All linens, towels, sheets, dishes, cooking utinsils, glassware,
coffee maker, etc. Ready to relax and enjoy.



Great fishing (smallmouth bass, landlocked salmon, lake and rainbow
trout) swimming, hiking, shopping, theater, campiing -- an outdoors



The rent is $1450/week,plus 9% NH Rooms & Meals tax STILL OPEN due to recent cancellations: June 18-July 1 July 7-July 11 July 18-31 50% non-returnable deposit to reserve it. I'm a writer and retired and need to be paid in advance for the time you would rent it. Renters must clean up after themselves before leaving as I have no cleaning crews available on the island. And you must take your trash in and out with you.
