A lake house in New Hampshire sounds pretty nice, right? How about a lake house in New Hampshire located minutes from Canobie Lake Park—all for under $150,000? This sunny, yellow, not-too-good-to-be-true abode in Windham is just that. At just 750 square feet, the one-bedroom cottage across the street from Cobbetts Pond is listed for an affordable $129,900.

Sure, it’s small, but it’s got charm. It’s also in great shape. Save for a few cosmetic changes, not a whole lot will need to be done to make the place a modern, fun, seasonal getaway. The house makes room for an eat-in kitchen, a living room, one bedroom, high ceilings, a lofted sleeping alcove, and an enclosed porch. If you get creative about sleeping arrangements, there’s enough space for the whole family.

The home is also only a 45-minute drive from Boston, meaning it could be a year-round residence if you’re OK with downsizing into a tiny house. But proximity to the city has nothing on the property’s proximity to New England’s other pride and joy: Canobie Lake Park. Established in 1902, the amusement park is a much-loved landmark, and only a 15-minute drive from the cottage. The new owners of the place would have the privilege of living life within minutes of the Yankee Cannonball coaster.
