Property description

Enjoy lake front living and dazzling sunsets in this classic cape home on beautiful Governor's Island; a location well suited away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to shopping (both necessary and luxury), dining and all the four-season outdoor activities that Lake Winnipesaukee is well known for.

Meticulously kept, this family-friendly house is located on the west, north-west side of the island which allows for phenomenal waterfront sunset views. 150' of water frontage with a U-shaped dock and jetty and substantial deck space for relaxation. Tiered landscaping allows for dining, lounging and play on many different levels; you won't want to go inside! But if you do find yourself wandering indoors, the sweeping main living level has a well stocked kitchen with counter stools and a recessed sitting area with fireplace. An adjacent dining room seats 8 with lovely views of the water or enjoy your meals in the three season screened porch leading off the kitchen with lake views. The great room is a perfect family gathering spot with cathedral ceilings and a large fireplace. There are two bedrooms on the main level, one with a queen bed and lake views and the other with two twin beds; both bedrooms are served by a full bathroom between them. On the upper level you will find two en-suite bedrooms: one is a generously sized master with a king bed, lake views and walk in closet, the other is outfitted with two twin beds and overlooks the front yard. The upstairs landing has desk space for those times that you absolutely must (but don't want to!) work. The walk-out lower level boasts a media room with comfortable seating in front of a 65" TV... perfect for those few times you venture inside to catch a movie/show on TV or Netflix (included). On the other end of this level, a game area with group seating, an air hockey table & fuβball table await hours of fun. A wet bar connects the media and game areas for ease of serving refreshments. One last en-suite bedroom with king bed finishes off the lower level. All living areas enjoy the convenience and versatility of the SONOS music system.

Being a bonafied renter on Governor's Island is not without its perks. You can enjoy access to all the Governor's Island Club amenities, just 1 mile away from the house: use of the tennis courts, volleyball, the children's playground and sandy, shallow beaches. There are also substantial walking trails that run throughout the island which double as snow-shoeing/cross country skiing trails in the winter!

This conveniently located rental is in close proximity to a myriad of Lake Winnipesaukee's wonderful activities. Whether you are looking for something to do in the Summer, Spring, Winter or Fall, Lake Winnipesaukee has it all. And while we are available for every season, please keep in mind that we are a non-smoking and pet-free rental. Thank you!
