Main House and History

The Main House The original house was built around 1880. There are some nice architectural details throughout the house which is the post and beam construction (although the beams are not currently exposed). The Barn is also post and beam construction with the hand hewn logs clearly visible in the barn basement.
The house received the following mention in "A History of Lochmere New Hampshire" (A Bicentennial Project of Lochmere Woman's Club 1974-1975, page 64):

"The Anthony Costa home was built by Ina Richardson's father around 1880. He cut the lumber on his own land, Ina says. The Robert Rices completely renovated the building and ran a gift shop there in the forties. Weldon Young says Marie Rice was influential in getting street lights installed in Lochmere. The Costas have added to the old building, making it one of Lochmere's most beautiful homes."

View from cottage road View from the Cottage road looking down to the main house and barn. We don't offer guest quarters in the main house at this time, however we are exploring that possibility as well as renovating our barn to be used for guest use. We see potential in our property as a rustic but well appointed get away.

Painting of House and Property The house was the subject for a local artist who we believe is pictured here with her original painting of the property. Please email us if you have any information on the artist or painting.
