Nestled on the eastern shore of Lake Winnipesaukee and surrounded by the pristine beauty of forests and mountains, Wolfeboro is a quintessential New England community with a rich heritage.

Distinguished as “The Oldest Summer Resort in America,” Wolfeboro has grown to become a four-season vacation destination as well as a cherished home for full-time residents. A visit to Wolfeboro can be whatever you want it to be: a romantic getaway, a fun-filled family weekend or a quiet respite from hectic city life. Here you’ll find a myriad of shops, art galleries and museums, as well as a tempting array of restaurants, bed and breakfasts and inns.

In the summer the town bustles with sight-seeing, concerts, summer theater and craft fairs. Sports enthusiasts enjoy boating, fishing and swimming. Shoppers delight in the many locally-owned shops and boutiques. In the Fall, spectacular foliage creates photo opportunities at every turn. Nearby country fairs abound with a cornucopia of produce, farm animals, and crafts. The crisp weather invites long country walks and evenings by the fire. Under a blanket of glistening snow, Wolfeboro becomes a winter wonderland for skiing, snowmobiling, skating, ice fishing and more. “Ice Out” on Lake Winnipesaukee heralds the onset of spring, syrup flows from the maple trees and a delicate green mist decorates the forest, the harbinger of the summer to come.

Come visit. Explore. Shop. Dine. Ski. Fish. Boat. Hike. Golf. Picnic. Laugh. Talk. Share. Nap. Dream. Stay. You can do everything or nothing at all in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire — The Jewel of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Peaceful Columbus Day Weekend visit at The Barn!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The Barn over Columbus Day weekend! The Barn is beautiful, modern, impeccably clean and was truly above our expectations! The kitchen was well stocked with whatever you need and has a large island that seats 4. There is both a Keurig machine and a regular coffee maker and was great to have both options! However, if you're in need of something, there's a small grocery store just a few miles down the road. The pond is incredibly peaceful and we enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sunset! Wolfeboro itself is a cute town with a downtown area right on Lake Winnipesaukee. There are some nice restaurants... We ate at 'Garwoods' and would recommend eating there. All-in-all, my husband and I had a great time staying here and we hope to stay here again someday during the warmer weather!

Simply stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "The Barn" was wonderful from the accommodations, to the quiet of Rust Pond to the friendly neighbors and of course the beautiful town of Wolfboro. We vacationed with two other couples and had everything we needed at the house. The house has ample space for a larger group yet very comfortable and homey. We would highly recommend a visit to Rust Pond and a stay at "The Barn".

This house is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful and the view is spectacular. It was hard to believe that it was mid-September. Even though we were there for my son's wedding, we found the time to swim, kayak and even canoe around Rust Pond. We also walked to downtown and enjoyed every minute spent there. Chris the host made sure that the house was well stocked for our visit and it was greatly appreciated. If we ever visit the area again, we would love to stay here. Highly recommend this rental home. It is truly AMAZING!!

Perfect Lake House for a visit to Wolfeboro!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I could not have had a better visit to The Barn. The home is the perfect setting for a Lake Vacation and certainly has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable time. We were so impressed with the home and its location we were planning next year's visit almost immediately. Most definitely looking forward to our next visit to The Barn and Rust Pond.

Gorgeous waterfront home close to town

  • 5 of 5

My husband, children and I stayed at The Barn for a week in July. This house is spacious and comfortable while being updated and gorgeous. The three bedrooms were all comfortable, and the kitchen was impressive. I was a bit hesitant at first because from the photos it wasn't clear how easy it would be for my three year old to get into the water from the dock, but there was no issue at all as the steps were sturdy and the water of Rust Pond was clean and clear. Christopher and his family were very quick to respond with any questions (we thought we may have left behind an item, and reached out to him and he responded immediately). This house is a great location within Wolfeboro, Rust Pond is a bit quieter than being on the Lake, and you can be downtown in minutes. Having a kayak and canoe to use without the hassle of renting or bringing our own was also a huge plus. I highly recommend The Barn if you are looking in Wolfeboro!

Owner's Response: Dear Danielle ... thanks for choosing to stay at The Barn and thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. I'm grateful you chose to stay at our house and I’m happy to hear you found the accommodations comfortable. I’m also glad to hear that your daughter was able to use the dock easily to go swimming. I was at the house a few weeks ago and the water was a perfect temperature after warming up through the summer. My kids are now 15 years old (son) and 13 years old (daughter) and Rust Pond is perfect … with the canoe and kayak and a stand-up paddleboard we bring, they're ALWAYS on the water. I hope you and your whole family enjoyed every minute of your time on the lake and around Wolfeboro. We would be happy to welcome you and your family back some time in the future. All the best!
