Lake Winnisquam chateau / country house description

Beautiful flowers, lots of wildlife, awesome fishing!Our year-round house sits on the West shore of Lake Winnisquam. This camp has been in our family for three generations. The 24' fireplaced livingroom was originally a one room school house in Laconia, and brought across the ice by draft horses. We have pictures of the original owners & the original B&B guest book for 'Camp Westwood' from the late 1800's. Beautiful spacious sunny rooms all have a view of the lake & Belknap Mountain Range. The kitchen has all the amenities: Jenn-air stove, lg frig, dishwasher and disposal. The large dining area has 2 large bow windows overlooking lake. Play cards on the 24 ft porch with 3 large picture windows and a slider to the deck overlooking the lake. Sit by the outside fireplace eating s'mores and watch the moon rise over the mountains across the lake.
Take in the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the bench of your private 40 ft dock which has easy access to water, for your enjoyment in summer. Fishing on Lake Winnisquam is fantastic Summer & Winter, we can show you our secret spots! Sit at the picnic table and watch the eagles, osprey, great blue herons, loons & ducks. There are bird houses and feeders all around the yard. My Grandfather started the beautiful flower, vegetable and herb gardens which surround the property. Follow the native trout babbling brook which borders the property and travels thru the woods either walking or snowshoing. Relax and enjoy the private, woodsy setting, located on a quiet dead end road, away from traffic. In winter, enjoy great Rainbow & Lake Trout fishing in front of the Camp - no 'Ice Fishing House' needed! The outlet mall, golfing and mini golf, antiquing, hiking and farm stands, cider & pumpkins, Gunstock mtn. Recreational Area, Weirs Beach and the Mt. Washington cruise ship, only 20 minutes away. All types of boat & jetski rentals nearby on Lake Winnisquam. Ice fish, cross-country ski, iceskate, snowmobile right at Camp! There are numerous restaurants to choose from: family style home cooking to 5 star gourmet restaurants within a 30 minute drive. Indoor swimming pool nearby.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1925

              About the owner: My husband & I have been lucky enough to have this property in our family for three generations. We live in the carriage house next door. We are avid fishermen and love all 4 seasons here. We have lots of great memories of good times & friendships made over the years. Lake Winnisquam fishing is terrific: Lg & sm. mouth bass, lake trout, rainbow trout, white & yellow perch & sunfish. The wildlife is abundant. The gardens are beautiful! We love to watch the sunrise and the moon rise over the mountains across the lake. We live in a wonderful neighborhood!

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Winnisquam:
              We are so thankful that our Grandmother & Grandfather chose this spot back in 1925! Step back in time and read the old guest books and journals from 1903! It is such a beautiful location with the Million Dollar View! We are so happy to be able to spend 4 seasons here.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              Relax, quiet, beautiful surroundings. The house is full of charm with sunny spacious rooms filled with history. We have two 45' HDTVs, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. We have an apple tree, and fresh beautiful flowers & herbs surrounding the property, ready for picking! We enjoy feeding the birds and watching them nest in the houses by the lake. During Winter we ice fish in front of the house, x-country ski, downhill ski/tubing, snowmobile to Canada from our front yard/snowshoe the woods exploring animal tracks along the brook.
