              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We love Lake Winnipesaukee and feel lucky to have vacationed here as kids. We enjoy just relaxing by the lake, kayaking or taking a refreshing trip in the boat. There are many public places to dock your boat that gives you access to wonderful restaurants, food, shopping or even get ice cream by boat at 19 mile bay. Then take the kids wakeboarding or tubing. It doesn't get any better than Lake Winnipesaukee.

              Why the Owner Chose Moultonborough:
              Lake Winnipesaukee is the ideal place to spend time with family & friends. Large, very clean lake with lots of activities. This home is just steps away from the beach but without the water-front price tag. We bought this home due to the large lot and plenty of rooms for family and friends. Great place to be together but plenty of room to spread out when you need some quiet time. We liked the privacy of the large lot but visibility to the activities at the beach and boat launch.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              With lots of interior space we can have lots of friends join us and never feel cramped. And with 2 acres of land we can play volleyball, horseshoes and so much more.
