A large family compound well suited for family reunions on Lake Winnipesaukee on a very private peninsula with water on three sides. This property features 3 separate structures: 1) A classic 4 BR lake house (sleeps 10) with a wraparound covered porch just a few yards from the water; 2) an updated 2 BR guest house (sleeps 4) with AC, stainless steel appliances, Corian countertops, tile floors in kitchen and baths, and large open deck overlooking the water; & 3) a renovated 2 BR carriage house (sleeps 4) with kitchenette, screened in porch, and ping pong table.
We spent the hottest week of this summer at this great property. We were 17 people, ranging in ages from 83 to 1. It was fabulous! The pictures depict the houses perfectly and the property is extremely well-maintained. The Main House is classic lake style (think "On Golden Pond"). This easily slept 10 people. The 4 little boys loved the bunk room. The dining space was a bit tight when all 17 of us wanted to eat together but we got around it by feeding the kids first. The guest house slept another 4 of us. One person is wheel-chair bound and this house (and one bedroom/bathroom) is all on one level and worked fine (with just a few steps into the house). The carriage house slept the remainder of the group. The front porch, overlooking the lake, was the favorite spot, all of us lined up in our rockers, cocktails in hand. The docks provided great fishing spots for the kids and the beach for swimming was great too. The house does face west, so the afternoon sun got the house a bit hot. With no air conditioning in the Main House, maybe some blinds in the dining room windows would help filter sun when needed. The guest house has a/c but we never used it. Leaving the windows open seemed sufficient. The carriage house has a Ping-Pong table and the guys spent many after-dinner hours in rowdy games. Both kitchens are extremely well-stocked w/ everything you could need. Loads of outdoor room for the kids to play or bike ride down the long drive-way. The realtor was very accommodating, allowing us to check out the property during the off-season to assess its wheel-chair accessibility. Our security deposit was returned in full in 30 days, along with a lunch cooler bag we had left behind. When asked what the best part of the vacation was, my 9 year old nephew summed it up simply - "Everything!" Wish we could do this every summer.
