Gilford house description

Enjoy all that Lake Winnipesaukee, the surrounding area & the White Mountains have to offer at this beautiful waterfront home! It's just steps from the water and there's room for your toys at the 120 ft. private shared dock. A beautifully landscaped, enclosed yard perfect for lawn games, small beach area and ample outside seating (complete with gas grill and small fire pit) ensure outside fun. There's even a large outside shower!
3 Bedrooms (all upstairs) and three full baths (2 up & 1 down) as well as a Murphy bed in the living room.
The master bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has a queen and the third bedroom has a full bed/twin bunk set and a twin. The Murphy bed in the living room is a queen bed.

There are TVs in 2 bedroom as well as the living room along with Blu Ray DVD/DVR players (incl. Sports Channel!). The living room is equipped with a Sonos stereo system, WiFi, iPad, board games and has a gas fireplace. A washer/dryer, central AC & heat, high-end linens, paper products and a fully stocked kitchen complete the total 'home away from home' package that we strive to provide. It is even decorated for the various holidays!
A convenient central location (3 miles or less) to Meadowbrook, Gunstock(skiing/zip-lining,etc.), Laconia airport, shopping, eating, theaters and beaches. Near the start of the IronMan race, Weirs Beach and Loudon/NASCAR is only 20 minutes away. Many hiking venues of varying levels nearby, a major snowmobile trail and great fishing (summer & ice and 4 of 7 varieties) right out front. The White Mountains and ocean are an easy day trip.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, so I have a long-time connection with the Lakes Region. I'm a custom home builder and remodeler. I recently completed my second home and have started renting two properties on Homeaway. Nothing makes me happier than meeting some great people and hearing that they have had a terrific experience at the properties.

Why the Owner Chose Gilford:
I started renovating this house in 2008 for my mom. She has since passed but got to enjoy it for a little bit. It was a labor of love and I get to help create other great memories for a lot of famiies and their friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is HUGE! It's a quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street but within walking distance to great entertainment establishments. I have put a lot of time into a beautiful array of plantings and a perfectly flat lawn. I take a lot of pride in the property (inside & out) and providing a great experience for my guests.
