Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in Concord, MA and frequent the house. We are looking for people who will treat this house with respect as if it were their own. In return, they will have a memorable vacation stay!

Why the Owner Chose Gilford, NH, USA:
We love this area. We fell in love with the many things to do and the beautiful scenery. We looked at A LOT of properties before buying this. We hope you will feel the same way! This is not a business for us. it is our vacation home which we rent occasionally.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We wanted a place where we could have the family and be comfortable yet have privacy as well. We had certain other criteria that needed to be met. We wanted a quiet place. Walking trails were a must. Skiing, boating nearby and a beach as well. We have put a lot of work into the house and we are looking for people who will respect it. If you are looking for a loud party house, please look elsewhere. This is a very quiet area. You may hear an occasional boat in the summer but in the winter it is peaceful. No snowmobiles or ATVs are allowed on the island. Please read association rules and abide by them.
