Why Maurice Couture chose Alton Bay
Why this property? Location - Location – Location: The days spent at our vacation, lake home will leave you with a feeling of having enjoyed a rare time in your life on the shores of a remarkable lake with memories that you will cherish forever. Waterfront property on Lake Winnipesaukee similar to ours is nearly impossible to find. This property was acquired in 1945 by members of our family, when this part of the lake was first subdivided, and has remained in the family ever since. Our location offers easy commute, by boat or by car, to restaurants and major attractions. This magnificent waterfront has everything you need to help you get away from it all and relax. Our Home is located on 100 feet of Lake Winnipesaukee lakefront property. Note: In 2016, due to popular demand we included the addition of the lower level that features a living room, a dining room, a full bath and a bed room that sleeps 4. Everyone loves the incredible mountain and lake view and the sliders that open to a large family oriented patio that this lower level has to offer. Linen is included and provided when requested. We are honored and humbled to have guests that enjoy the lake and our home so much during their stay that they return again.
What makes this House unique
The home, the lot and the location all contribute to making this rental an ideal family vacation rental. Children love hanging out on the lower walkout level facing the waterfront. The bedroom has a twin bed and a bunk bed. Our lake home is a single family home. It is not a condo. You will be the only occupants of this property during your stay. Waterfront owned means you have the private use of the property whenever you want to and your children will not have to cross a road to get to the water and you will not have to share the dock. Located in Alton means that you are always within a short travel distance, to major tourist attractions. Our home is located on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. It is centrally located in the lakes region and accessible to all of the popular tourist destinations. Alton Bay is on the southern end of the lake. From our home you can drive 30 minutes west and arrive at Weirs Beach and Funspot in Laconia or drive 1 hour and 15 minutes north and arrive in the White Mountains where you can shop in North Conway and tour the many mountainside attractions. Hampton Beach, Water Country and the Kittery Trading Post are easterly approximately 1 hour away. While Boston Massachusetts is 1 hour and 45 minutes south. Ellacoya State Park 11.72 miles away 19 minute located in Gilford is the southwest shore of Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire's largest lake. Wolfeboro is only a few minutes away by boat or by automobile. Gunstock Mountain Ski area is 12.33 miles away, a 20 minute scenic drive to the biggest zip tour in New England. Grocery shopping is only a couple of miles away from our lake home to Alton's Hannaford Supermarket.

Enjoyed our stay
The owner was nice and thorough in his check in process. House was spacious and comfortable. They allow use of their kayaks and floats which was wonderful. Steep path to the water for those with less mobility but great swimming area. I suggest bringing some fans with you. We had a great time.
Perfect vacation spot!
A great way to spend your vacation with your grandkids. Everything you need to relax and spend a week of swimming, hiking, fishing, and boating. The house was absolutely what a family of ten needed and more.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review.
We enjoyed sharing our home with such a beautiful family.
Meeting everyone upon your arrival at our lake home reassured us that we had made the right decision in choosing you, from among many inquiries, as our guests.
A special thanks to everyone for your cleanliness. .
As we get older spending quality time with our grandchildren
is our duty and our reward.
We really enjoyed our stay!
From the moment we sent our first inquiry, Maurice was very quick to reply and helpful in answering our questions. Everything was as expected when we arrived and we were very pleased with the layout of the home and proximity to the lake. Having both floors available for use was helpful for our large family. There were many indoor games and activities that our kids loved, but the dock and other water activities were the highlight for everyone. There is a little shallow sandy area for small kids to play in. The aquaglide was fun for all ages. There were tubes, beach chairs, sand toys, kayaks and other fun things for our family to use. There are two outdoor tables with chairs for people to sit and enjoy the view. There was plenty of space inside for us to spread out. It was peaceful and quiet. We absolutely loved the location, the home, the grounds and being on the lake. We would definitely recommend this home to others! The only thing we would have done differently is to realize sooner that towels and linens are not provided. Many of us were flying to get to this home and hadn't factored that in to the packing.
Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure having you stay at our lake home.
We hope that you will return on your anniversary. When our guests make a request we deliver.
Towels and linens are now provided for all of our guests.
Packing for long distance travelers is no longer a problem. In fact, in September 2016, we had guests stay at our lake home who traveled all the way from China.
Regarding our stay at your lovely house.
We had a fantastic week, it was everything we anticipated and more, the house itself was great.
There was enough room for all of us, our teenagers loved the game room downstairs, and our 9 year old grandson was thrilled to play on "the beach".
The teenagers and grownups had fun with the kayaks and floating dock, they were either in the water or on it.
We liked the fact that the house was located near so many attractions and places to shop.
Our stay was most pleasurable, we appreciated your concern for our comfort and your personal interactions.
We would most certainly recommend vacationing at your rent home.
Your review confirms that we made the right decision in choosing your family to stay at our lake home.
The best compliment that we can receive is knowing that everyone in your rental party enjoyed themselves. Thank you again. We enjoyed having you.
2015 Family Vacation
This was a very nice, relaxing, peaceful vacation. The owner was EXTREMELY quick to respond to all of our correspondence. The owner was more than accommodating to ensure all of our needs were met. Everyone had a great time, using the owner provided kayaks, tubes and other inflatables. The house had spectacular views and it was lovely waking up each morning and enjoying a cup of coffee while watching early morning boaters and jet skiers. It was a slow-paced week, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby tourist towns, though we did take advantage of driving to neighboring towns. My only suggestion would be putting a queen bed in the second bedroom and better lighting in the bedrooms.
A well-appointed house in a lovely setting
Our family enjoyed our visit. The owners were lovely and accommodating and did everything they could to enhance our stay. This house has every convenience you need for a comfortable vacation. The views of the lake are gorgeous. While the lake traffic was heavy on the weekend, it was very peaceful during the week and our children spent most of the week in the water. The house is proximate to many attractions and we took advantage of many of these including restaurants, pubs, arcades, shopping, cycling, golf, hiking, and movie theaters. We would recommend this house and would love to return!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We all enjoyed welcoming your family on your arrival and we are thrilled to hear that everyone enjoyed their vacation during their stay in our home.
