About Kirk Gilmore & John Agostine
John and Kirk moved to Wolfeboro from Houston, TX. Talk about a pleasant culture shock! John is retired Guidance Counselor who currently spends his time creating unique, high quality, hand-crafted soaps, which he sells under the name Back Bay Soaps. When not creating his bejeweled soaps and hand-crafted bags, John spends most of his time waiting on Rocco and Lola, our spoiled and loving 3 year old Yorkie-Poos. Kirk is a Corporate Controller for an international company and travels, often too much according to Lola! When home he plans elaborate annual parties, tends the flower beds, sells promotional products through GILCO Specialties, and decorates.
Kirk Gilmore & John Agostine purchased this House in 2013
Why Kirk Gilmore & John Agostine chose Wolfeboro
We fell in love with Wolfeboro the moment we drove down main street, captivated by the true New England charm of this sleepy little town. As far as the church, we both feel in love with it as soon as we opened the front door. The prior owner spent a lot of time and money transforming the bones of the building into a 5 BR, 4 bath residence--we simply took it to a higher level. We (Kirk) loves to throw parties, our 2nd Annual Christmas Party was attended by more than 225 people. We name the property "Celebrate on Union" with the intentions of one day being a small event center. The decorations are a unique and eclectic mix of antiques, modern shiny glass, oriental rugs and "things". We believe in of them. Each time you walk into a room you are likely to notice something that you did not notice before. And if you like Christmas, Celebrate on Union becomes a Christmas Wonderland with lavish decorations (and glitter) dripping from every surface! We love to entertain and share our space with both old and new friends. We look forward to getting to know you
What makes this House unique
Each of our rooms have a European style bath with an antique claw-footed tub, perfect for a relaxing soak. The wood ceiling in the bedrooms provide a warm welcome and the new Mitsubishi A/C & heating units ensure perfect sleeping comfort on the both days each year when the humidity is too high to sleep with the window open.

Beautiful property and gracious owners
We were more than pleased with the property and the owners. Wonderfully decorated and maintained. Very comfortable and quiet, and close to everything Wolfeboro had to offer.
Cool Place and Location - Nice Hosts
This was a cool place that was walking distance into the town. The hosts were very gracious and had the place very clean and ready for us to stay in. The kitchen has everything you might need to cook a meal and stay in for the night. Definitely would recommend this.
A must see!!!!!!
Really interesting place.
Very well located. Interesting to see.beautifully decorated. Clean and well cared for.
John and Kirk are lovely interesting people.
Wolfeboro is a sleepy little, quaint New England town. Picturesque and slow paced. Although there is outlet shopping with an hours drive, you do not come to Wolfeboro for shopping. Lake Winnipesaukee is one of the cleanest lakes in the United States and the waterfront properties are truly spectacular. The summer months are generally mild with average highs only reaching into the low 80s--occasionally! Spring doesn't begin until late April and the Indian Summer (Fall) Nights are truly spectacular. Drink your morning coffee on our outdoor patio and have complimentary cocktails on our raise deck. The church is truly a landmark in the area and everyone that walks inside is absolutely amazed at the interior. We are told repeatedly that pictures do not come close to doing Celebrate on Union justice. Come enjoy our hospitality. Your privacy is respected, but be certain to keep your door shut, or Rocco and Lola (the resident Yorkie-Poo host and hostess) may give you an invigorating welcome! We live downstairs, so our guests have complete use of the main level, loft, gourmet kitchen and dining areas.
