Classic Lake Cottage Design

There are five bedrooms in the upstairs of the main lake cottage. At 124 Alpine Park, Moultonborough's lake cottage you will find high ceilings, knotty pine walls, pine floors, and many windows for cross ventilation. These are some of the characteristics of summer cottages that still influence the design of contemporary lake homes today.

The detached "barn" which has been converted to charming year round quarters for the current owners has additional sleeping quarters in its upper level. A kitchen and an open concept living area with a fireplace, now used for a woodstove, is on the entry level. The living area leads to a large den that opens to the laundry room and to a sun porch and deck. This converted barn has high ceilings and the original hardwood floors, which are in beautiful condition. The key elements of lake house warmth are yours in both the converted barn and classic lake cottage.
