Tranquil lakefront cottage w/private beach, boat slip, access to fishing kayaks

Relax on your very own private sandy beach on Leavitt Bay. This bright lakefront cottage has an expansive waterfront and two decks giving you a front-row seat to some beautiful sunrises and sunsets across seasons. The Fall season is especially quiet and beautiful on Leavitt Bay, fantastic for fishing, kayaking, and stargazing. The Ossipee area is close to apple orchards, farms, fairs and tasting rooms.

During the Summer months, you will enjoy swimming and boating, and fishing on the bay, as well as a slip on an expansive dock where you can secure your boat. Grill your fresh catch on the private gas grill as the sun goes down and let the non-fishers of the group prepare sides in the fully equipped kitchen. With space and trees between each of the homes in the neighborhood, you'll feel like the lake is your own. Plus, an amazing outdoor area - complete with a hammock, propane fire pit, picnic table, and an umbrella to help you escape the sun. This cottage is just the place to enjoy a glass of wine and relax with the song of the loons or sightings of the Eagle fishing in the bay. Welcome to your lake life retreat!

Bring your bikes and hiking shoes and explore many nearby country roads and trails. There are many good fishing spots on Ossipee Lake, as well as on many other nearby ponds. When folks inevitably grow hungry, there are some local favorites, including The Wooden Spoon, Windy Fields Farm, Smoking Guns BBQ & Butcher Shop, Mountain View Station, Mumma Christy's Pizzas & Subs, Hobbs Tavern & Brewing Company, and Harley Jacks Burgers and Brews, Sap House Meadery within 15 miles of the cottage!

I haven't taken a vacation for myself in such a long time, and Bayside Sunshine was just the ticket. I loved that the property was nestled on the corner of Leavitt Bay, and we did not have any neighbors the entire weekend! I basically lived in the hammock. And the views...I mean, it was all so breathtaking. Really - I could go on and on about the views, but I digress.

There were just a couple things I wanted to mention about the property. I was a little nervous about cleanliness because I feel like lake houses have a reputation for being a bit dirty and unkept, but this place was pretty well-maintained. We did find a couple dead bugs in the kitchen and on one of the beds, but that's it. The bugs on the outside, however, were relentless at times! FYI for those wanting to go around this time of year...bring your repellent!

Most days the lake was not too bad with boats and jet skis, but the weekends can be a bit noisier. Just an FYI.

I was pleasantly surprised about all the things that came with the place, especially the kitchen - fully equipped! I wish there had been like 1 or 2 more rolls of toilet paper for the bathroom and maybe 1 or 2 more trash bags, but no big deal to get some more. We had a bit of trouble with the wifi and the TV in the beginning, but when all else fails, turn the devices off and on again!

I had also read the past reviews about the beds being super uncomfortable, but these beds were great! Not one complaint about them. Slept very well and was able to keep cool as well.

Communication-wise, if you need to get in touch with the company while you are there, calling or texting the number they provide worked well for me. Beforehand, however, I could not get much communication, but it all turned out ok.

If I could pick one thing to pass onto the management company, however, it would be the front slider screen door. That thing was terrible. It kept coming off of its tracks no matter what we did and was difficult to manage every day.

All in all, this was a great stay and I've gone into full post-vacation depression. Thank you so much - I will absolutely be back in the future when I need another escape!

We had an amazing stay at Bayside Sunshine. We visited the cottage in the fall, and the views were stunning! The lake, mountains, and colorful leaves made for a breath-taking back drop. There was also a propane fire pit on the point of the peninsula that we enjoyed at night. The inside of the cottage was adorable. There was plenty of space and the rooms were impeccably clean. We enjoyed a paddle boat ride in the morning, which was a perfect way to see the sunrise. While visiting Ossipee, we Hiked Mount Shaw and had a delicious dinner at Harley Jacks nearby. This made for a perfect weekend get away!

Great little place with a nice beach! Kitchen has everything you need. It’s small but it works fine for 3-4 people. AC works well but doesn’t really reach the bedrooms. The rooms and atmosphere are very comfortable but the beds have seen better days so bring some extra fluff.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Maria! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. To enhance the comfort of our guests, the bed has been replaced. We hope you'll come back to stay again!

The cottage was perfect for what we needed. It was clean and well stocked with dishes, pots/pans etc. We also loved being right on the lake. Only downside was lake was very busy with boats, jet skis etc

Family of four, we stayed for a long weekend in September 2020. The cottage is cute and the location is beautiful. Very close to the water, with a nice beach area, and extra swimming area around the side, as it is on the end of a small point - isolated on one side. When entering water, a couple feet of rocks/pebbles, then nice sand for 10 yards or so, and then some sparce lake grass pops up (like tall hay, not slimy, and not overwhelming). Also a nice, wide, shared dock for a boat, or fishing. Only disappointment was the overall cleanliness of the cottage upon arrival. Some cob/spider webs with spiders and bugs in the corners. More than a random spider as one would expect. The sheets appeared to be new and washed, but had old stains on them. Fridge was pretty dirty inside. And there was women's underwear in the top drawer of one of the bureaus. Some minor items like falling curtain rod holders. While we were very focused on COVID, and hoping everythign was disinfected, we were more concerned with the dirt once we arrived. We are hopeful that the COVID cleaning occurred since we received several notices regarding the cleaning standards of Vacasa. Overall, it was nothing we could not get past. We were prepared to wipe everything down on a shared rental property. It was just a little worse than expected. All in all, the cottage, and location were worth the stay. And we would go back to this spot.
Manager response:
Hi, Daniel! We are sorry to read cleaning was subpar for your stay. We have a new Property Caretaker for this rental, and they will be addressing the housekeeping issues you encountered along with the curtain rod. Thank you!

My family stayed here for four nights and loved every minute of it. The cottage was clean and stocked, and the views were beautiful. My kids loved having a private beach to swim, fish, and be kids. We didn't feel the need to go anywhere, but we were easily able to drive to North Conway for a day or access grocery stores, etc. We hope to be back!
