Leave the hustle and bustle of daily life on the mainland behind and retreat to this beautiful, peaceful home located on Mink Island. It's just a short 10 minute 3 mile boat ride from the mainland to paradise! We are looking for renters who will appreciate the beauty of our property and take care of our home as they would their own.
The property boasts a large, level, grassy front yard which is great for playing lawn games, a large picnic table, an inviting hammock , a fire pit and a sandy beach with shallow water entry. The gradual slope into the water is perfect for an easy swim or kayak out to the swim raft where you can enjoy your book, beverage and snack. A no wake zone allows for a safe, quiet, worry free area perfect for kids of all ages. The private 40’ dock will accommodate 2 boats up to 30’ and has steps leading into the water.
The large deck has a gas BBQ grill and a screened in gazebo great for dinner or an evening card game around the high top. Enter the house through the screened porch where you can sit and listen to the loons in the evening and enjoy family dinner time and games. Enjoy an open concept living room and kitchen with its vaulted ceiling. Overlooking the living room is a large loft with 2 twin beds and below the loft are 2 bedrooms. The master has a king size bed while the second bedroom has a bunkbed, and twin captains bed, both with large closet space. There is a full bath plus an enclosed outside shower on the deck. The kitchen with island is well equipped with everything you will need to prepare and serve your favorite cuisine. Appliances include a full size refridgerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric range and coffee maker. Water supply is filtered directly from the lake but there is a 5 gallon water cooler for your drinking water. The living room has comfortable seating with 2 couches and a chair with ottoman. There is also a flatscreen TV with satellite and a combination DVD/VCR.
Just behind the main house is a bunkhouse with additional sleeping, half bath with washer/dryer and an additional full size refridgerator. There are 2 kayaks available for your use as well as lawn games, books, puzzles and movies. What a wonderful way to spend your vacation!

About the owner: We are a family living in Gloucester Massachusetts who loves vacationing on the Islands of Lake Winnipesaukee and decided to purchase our own Island property. Since we can't be there all of the time, we have decided to share our little piece of paradise with others who would like to experience the tranquility of island life on the lake.
Why the Owner Chose Gilford, NH, USA:
We fell in love with this home as soon as we saw it! It has a retreat-like feel that we hope you will find as peaceful and rejuvenating as we have. Listening to the loons at night will serenade you to sleep. Enjoy time on the swim raft that is within yards of the loon nesting area where you will see them feeding and frolicking with their families. Bald eagles nest on the island adjacent to ours and provide a daily opportunity to catch a glimpse of these beautiful birds. Being in a no wake zone makes for perfect swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding without boat traffic and waves.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A favorite amenity is the large screened in porch. it is so beautiful but especially early morning with your first cup of coffee as the day awakens or late at night with a cocktail in hand listening to the lake fall asleep.
