I have lived on Long Pond since 2001 and know it to be a hidden Gem. There are 1300 lakes in New Hampshire and 11 are called "Long Pond".
The first question I get is what is a difference between a lake and a pond--in New Hampshire it simply might be the spelling. There are 250 acre ponds and 100 acer lakes. No real explanation
You see, this Long Pond I am talking about is around 100 acres--so not a puddle but not a huge lake. It is a quiet lake really--Not inundated with jetskies and powerboats. You will see kayaks, beaver, deer, and a few loons--and I am referring to the bird types. It is also I am told over 120 feet deep in one part, spring fed very clean and filled with fish. People here have come back for many summers and now there are many more year round residents. Afterall Northwood has Coe Brown Academy which is a highly rated hich school--really a private school all the kids go to in town. It is also known as antique Alley--and centrally located between Concord and Portsmouth BManchester Airport and the White Mountains all within an hour. For those weekenders only 90 minutes to Boston. Here is a wonderful example of a perfect Long Pond Getaway.
When you drive down the winding private road through a Model Tree Forest all of your stresses go away. Long Pond is 100 acre spring fed very deep very clean pristine private lake unspoiled and under developed with 3 islands, resident loons, beaver and everything Mother Nature can provide. This cabin is the ideal getaway with privacy and a huge Association sandy beach you can call your own most of the time. Inside you enjoy the benefits of an enclosed porch, outdoor deck. Inside there is an ample kitchen and living area, 3 bedrooms and enclosed porch newly renovated kitchen and full bath. Below is a large open plan basement for all of your tools and toys. There is also a very well established association. Come home to where people can only dream of vacationing. Get away from it all yet be close to everything you need. Within 45 minutes of Gunstock, Concord, Portsmouth, Lake Winnipesaukee, Manchester Airport and 90 minutes to Boston.
Enjoy life as it should be.
