Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, and have a deep connection to the area. I am a custom home builder and remodeler, who truly loves seeing people have a great experience in the spaces I build.

Why the Owner Chose Gilford, NH, USA:
This property is really an ideal location being just 4 minutes away from Lake Winnipesauke and only 2 minutes away from Gunstock Mountain. When I first saw it in 2012, I knew I wanted to live here. So I purchased the property and did a complete tear down of the previous home. After having built nine other vacation homes, I decided to build this home for myself. I focused on luxurious amenities and all the creature comforts I’d dreamed of. The property offered nice views but I knew it could offer more, so I had a local landscape professional come in and remove some trees to create the breathtaking views that are now offered from every room of the house. After finishing construction and furnishing the home, I realized that I wanted to share the luxurious retreat I had created. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to offer this rental to people from all over the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee from every room to the abundant living space both indoors and out, guests will experience a relaxing, enjoyable vacation from check in to check out. With easy access to both the mountain and the lake, outdoor activity options are endless. The house is equipped with an Xbox 360; board games; and an air hockey table; a Sonos music system throughout the indoor and outdoor living space; a deck with abundant seating, fire pit, and gas grill. It’s a great place to relax with a special someone or a large group. This mountain home is truly a luxury experience in so many ways and during all four seasons.
