Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in the State of New Hampshire and one of the largest lakes in the United States that lies within the boundaries of a single state. Surrounded by three mountain ranges, the wooded shoreline and crystal clear water of this spring-fed lake make it a popular year round NH Lakes Region destination, a place to rest and relax in beautiful surroundings.

Summer in the Lakes Region is simply a refreshing time of year. The boats, sports cars, water skiing, diving, kayaking and unique country Inns and shops make this time of year great for your vacation getaway. And if that's not enough, nothing compares to breath taking beauty than Winter at Lake Winnipesaukee! As you step out onto the ice, frosty breath in the air, adorned with your favorite winter apparel, you can witness the Fly-In onto the lake. One of the most exciting events in winter for the whole family. The runway is cleared on the ice and the planes land from all over the area. The frozen tundra is dotted with bob houses as far as the eye can see. There is ice skating, ice fishing, dog sled racing, snow mobiles and ice boats that fly with the wind. What ever your interests, Lake Winnipesaukee will captivate you.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a family of 6 with a primary residence in PA. Growing up in Woburn, MA, I used to vacation up at Lake Winnepesauke as a child and was fortunate enough to find a place to purchase in 2010. We are up at the home whenever we can be, including the month of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations. However, due to the kids' school and sports, ages ranging from 14-5, the home remains empty for 10 months out of the year. During these periods, we are looking to share it with nice families that enjoy the relaxing environment of the Gables Village, but also will take advantage of all the nearby amenities, including boating, skiing, fishing, etc. We have been there for three years and still have not done everything fun that there is to do up in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Laconia:
This property is set-up as a home. We live in it two months out of the year and comes with all the necessary amenities to have a relaxing and comfortable time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
100' from the beach. 300' from the lakefront and boat docks. Great nearby restaurants and attractions for all ages. Marina across the Bay for boat rentals. Jet Ski rentals about 15 minutes away. Gunstock ski mountain only 15 minutes away.
