                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Owners Bob and Maria Ruggiero, purchased this lakefront property on Smith Cove in the 1990s and renovated the Victorian into a 10-room inn. Additional accommodations are available to inn guests in the Lighthouse and Little House on the Cove. They have hosted many guests looking for a getaway to enjoy their quiet and lovely lakefront location and casual, relaxing atmosphere. During the last 20+ years, they have built their own home and purchased neighboring cottages to provide vacation rentals to those looking for more privacy and room to relax during longer stays.

                  Why the Owner Chose Gilford:
                  This Smith Cove vacation rental is located on a quiet part of New Hampshire's largest lake where boat speeds are limited to allow for lakefront relaxation. The surrounding grounds are owned by the cottage owner and are kept in immaculate condition.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The cottage is located just steps away from a private sandy beach on Smith Cove. Bring your own boat or rent for the day or your entire stay at a nearby marina. Boat dock available upon request. Enjoy quiet relaxation of Smith Cove along with the mountain views surrounding the lake.
