Gilford house description

Review Calendar please for any interested dates, we keep it up to date. We have a strict NO FIREWORKS and NO PETS policy. Thanks.

IMPORTANT: This is an Island Property and to get to the property you have to travel by boat which now in the State of NH means you must possess a valid boaters license as you cannot rent or operate a boat without one. (If you have a license from another state, check as most states are accepted) You do need a boat (your own or rental) or make arrangements for water taxi if desired. This adds to the overall character and experience of the home! We are confident that you will enjoy it as much as us.

Brand new gorgeous post and beam log cabin with all upscale amenities. The name of this home is Waterscape. This 2000 sq ft vacation home sits on 3 acres on the edge of the most wonderful lake in all of New England, Lake Winnipesaukee. The moment you step on the property you will fall in love and begin to decompress from the every day world. Relax in this peaceful comfortable home that has everything you need to be pampered! (IMPORTANT: Before you get too far along, we have a NO PETS policy that is strictly adhered to, and we apologize if this excludes your staying with us however, no exceptions on this policy)

You are first greeted as you walk up the gradual ramp from the dock by the 40 foot long outdoor living space, a covered porch overlooking the lake, and in front of that a wood sitting deck around a large fire-pit. You enter the home from the porch into a large open living area featuring the kitchen, living area, game area and dining area. The kitchen is a chef's playground with all new stainless steel appliances complete with dishwasher, granite countertops and large walkin pantry. You won't be ruffing it on this cabin stay in the woods! As you stand at the sink preparing dinner you look over the dining table out thru 5 windows to a panoramic view of the lake. The kitchen is fully outfitted including a blender for those frozen drinks on the porch, and a proper pot to boil the lobsters!

The Master Bedroom Suite includes its own separate door to the front porch for those early morning coffees. The MB consists of a queen bed, walkin closet, full bath with dual sinks, and a separate closet for Washer/Dryer. Each of the two upstairs bedrooms have a queen bed, walk in closet, and sleeping loft that can accomodate 2 additional adults (but this is where the kids love to sleep!). Each bedroom has two large windows overlooking the lake and a third with a sitting reading nook. All the queen beds in the home have new memory foam mattresses for your sleeping comfort. Each of the 3 bedrooms have flat screen TVs for your viewing pleasure. The bedrooms attach to an upstairs lounge area that has 55' HDTV flatscreen with DirectTV and gaming. Directly above the lounge is the highest point of the house which has a ladder to yet another sleeping loft area. There is a full bath located directly off the upstairs lounge area on the second floor.

On the main living area the open floor plan created by the great post and beam design allows for kitchen, dining, game table, and living room areas of the home. The dining table looks out to the lake and extends to sit 10 for dinner. A second table nearby easily sits another 5 guests. When this second table is not used for dining it is ideal for board games, or jigsaw puzzles. For those looking for more serious gaming the table top converts with a flip to a professional card table for poker and by removing the top entirely it is a very nice bumper pool table.

Surrounding the gas fired fireplace is the living room area with comfortable couch, overstuffed lounge chair, and reclining Adirondack leather chair. The back hallway leads to both the 1/2 bath and the door to the back covered porch and deck that includes stainless steel gas grill and sitting deck.

The property is on a channel that typically is only travelled by the locals which makes it that much more private. It has a sandy area for swimming and a wonderful rocky point with two Adirondack chairs for a quiet private moment. You are graced with nearly 300 feet of waterfront. Mark Island is 93 acres and has just over 30 homes on it. No roads as there are no bridges, just hiking and walking paths. You can hike to the center point of Mark Island which is a mount that is almost 200 feet above the lake. This is the name sake for the island, as it is the highest point on all of the islands and therefore early on became a point of navigation for the travelers on the lake 'The Mark'.



NOTE REGARDING RATES: There is a 'loyalty program' discount for returning guests. There is a 5% discount for full two week booking, and 10% discount on full month booking.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I am a engineer and my wife is in the education field. We enjoy traveling, family and friends, and have always loved this Lake. We are very fortunate to have found this gem of a property and would be pleased to share it with you. Our children have grown up on this lake from infancy and we can think of no where better than to call our 'home away from home'!

                  Why the Owner Chose Gilford:
                  Our immediate family along with friends have been vacationing on Lake Winnipesaukee for over twenty years and have been looking for a home for over the past 5 years. Well, in 2011 we finally found our little slice of paradise called 24 Mark Island.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home has the charm of a wonderful log cabin cottage but being brand new and built with the finest materials and finishes it provides the charm of the lake while pampering even the highest of expectations. We are confident that our guests will typically become repeat vacationers as this is truly a slice of paradise. The fact that it is on an island is a real plus as it adds so much to the experience, seclusion and character of the property. Obviously, if you are not a boater it makes this a bit more of a challenge. Our guests have all found it to be a big plus!
