About Carolyn LaVerdiere

I am a Maine native with relatives in the Gilford NH region.

For an outdoor enthusiast, this house is a dream come true! I enjoy several weeks a year here.

Carolyn LaVerdiere purchased this house in 2007

Why Carolyn LaVerdiere chose Lake Winnipesaukee

The views are stunning, just sitting on the deck and looking at the lake and hearing the sounds of nature made me fall for the property. I felt like this house had everything I was looking for, open living room with lots of windows, very large decks for entertaining and a spacious yard with beautiful flowers. I love the feel of the town of Gilford it has a wonderful New England charm.

What makes this house unique

The location of this house is so ideal, in just minutes you could be enjoying the many hiking trails, relaxing at a beach with beautiful views or taking in a concert at Meadowbrook. When you are at the house you feel like you are in a quiet paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

By Michael D.(Connecticut) Very nice home with great views of the lake. Was perfect for our family. Game room was a great bonus and kept everyone entertained in the evenings. Minutes away from Gunstock Mountain. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Gilford NH retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and open, with all the amenities of home capable of accommodating our large family. The views were great and the location was close enough to everything, and still far enough away to relax. My family and I would gladly stay again.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carolyn's home labor day weekend through the first week of September. The house is spacious, quiet, close to everything and the view of the lake is outstanding! The house has everything you need, linens, towels, etc. We spent a lot of time hanging out on the deck, enjoying the view of the boats whizzing by on the lake. The care taker Rebecca was quick to respond with any questions we had. The private beach access was wonderful. The beach is clean, lots of natural shade, not overly crowded and great for parents with small children. We would definitely stay again!

This was the perfect house for us! Three couples each looking for quiet time and gathering time! It was absolutely beautiful, well maintained and so comfortable and peaceful. We appreciated the close proximity to Gunstock and restaurants, and the water. The view was priceless! Thank you Carolyn for your welcoming nature and genuine interest in this being a pleasurable time! We want to come back!!

This house was perfect for my sons, daughter in laws and grandchildren. The house was very clean and the lay out is perfect. We enjoyed the deck every morning and night. The private beach was wonderful.

Carolyn was a gem to work with. Rebecca her assistant was there in minutes when we needed her. Thank you so much ~ we will be back.

The best experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations I've had in a long time and although there were other factors that contributed to that, the main factor was the home and the location. The house looks even better in person and was so warm and welcoming that we immediately felt at home and that type of comfort is priceless. We enjoyed the fact that shopping and the beach were close by and easy to find. There was not one single thing that we did not like about the home or the renting experience. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive, the caretaker was delightful, the views were amazing and we all felt sad when it was time to leave. We have already decided to make renting this home a yearly tradition for our family so I think that says it all. If you are thinking about renting, please do!
