Photos and Description of this Winnisquam holiday house

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 3/4 Bath, sleeps 8-10

Our 3-Bedroom home sits on the shores of beautiful Lake Winnisquam. When you enter the front door you will be amazed at how open and spacious, yet warm and inviting our home is. The living room features vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, hardwood flooring and lots of over-sized windows to let the natural sunlight in. The house is open concept with the living room flowing into the kitchen and dining room area which makes it great for family gatherings and entertaining. The kitchen also features a breakfast bar for a quick snack or less formal meal for the kids. There is a large deck off of the dining room that comes complete with patio furniture, a grilling area and stairs to dock and beach.

The entire main floor has been recently painted. We have added a 3/4 bathroom on the lower level across from the master bedroom. We have also just recently had the entire retaining wall around the shoreline replaced and upgraded to include granite stairs into the sandy beach area.

The lake isn't just for summer vacations, there is so much to do and see all year long. We're close to all the ski resorts, snowmobile trails are all around us, Weirs Beach, NH International Speedway just to name a few. Don't wait, book your next vacation today - you'll be glad you did.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for the use of your lake house. We have had the most amazing time here. The skiing at Gunstock and the snow is just what we were here for and neither disappointed. If only we had snow like this in the UK. I imagine it's just as good in the summer. Thanks again Dianne for your help.

best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was perfect. The house was very clean and comfortable. My family of 4 went and there was something for everyone. My children ages 4 & 13 had a great time. The owners are really accomodating and very nice.

I will definately rent again.

Grocery stores, Weirs Beach, arcades and restaurants are close by.

Owner's Response: No Stress - That is the perfect way to describe a vacation at our "Home Away From Home". Wether your a family, a young couple or just a group of really good friends this has got to be THE BEST place to just relax, unwind and escape from the realities of everyday life. There is so much to do, from site-seeing, to water activities or just parking yourself in a lounge chair and doing absolutely nothing. It is impossible to come here and not leave without a feeling of inner peace. Thank you to all of our guests - past, present & future, you have all been wonderful.

Beautiful Lake House on Lake Winnisquam

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful lake house on Lake Winnisquam. The house was very clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed. It's in a beautiful, peaceful location, conveniently located to everything. We loved waking up to the views of the lake. We couldn't have asked for a better venue, better weather or better company. It was perfect!

Peaceful Lakeside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a peaceful setting. Loved waking up to views of the lake every morning. It was wonderful to hear the loons daily too! It's close to coffee shops, restaurants and grocery stores. Our favorite place was only 2 miles from the rental, RawLife Juice Bar.

Owners of home are great communicators and responded immediately to any questions.

Will definitely stay again!!

Excellent vacation spot !

  • 5 of 5


We ran out of gas on the gas grill and they even had a spare tank right there just in case. Everything was thought of in advance. Beautiful table cloth out for fall - great to the last detail.

Beautiful Lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this Lakefront home with my family. There were 4 adults and 3 Children and there was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space. The home is clean and it has windows across the front facing the lake which gives you wonderful views of the lake. There is a nice dock with a table to sit out on while outside. Dock for your a boat, a nice sandy beach area for young kids to play. The house is fully equipped with everything you need for the week. BBQ grill on the deck to use. The house is close to many restaurants, shopping and other activities when you want to venture out. The lake is beautiful, large enough to go exploring but small/calm enough to enjoy water sports such as skiing, tubing, paddle boarding etc... We had a blast and look forward to returning next year. The owners are very organized, easy to get ahold of and keep you fully informed of what you need to know. I highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We're so glad you enjoyed your time on the lake and got to take in all that is Lake Winnisquam. We choose this lake for the exact reasons you listed. The location is perfect, the lake is big enough for water sports/activities, but small enough that you don't have the chaos that can come with being on a big lake. We look forward to having you back again!

Beautiful Lake Winnisquam in NH Lakes Region. Boating, fishing, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, shopping, hiking, motorcycle riding, etc. Short distance from the White Mountains, Gunstock Mountain, Waterville Valley, Weirs Beach, Meadowbrook Music Festivals, NH International Speedway, golfing, Fun Spot Arcades and water park, movies, restaurants.

Other Activities: snowmobiling, motor cycle riding

Golf: Lochmere Golf Course & CC is an 18-hole public golf course. Lochmere is within 1-mile of the house, you will actually drive by it on the way to the rental property, that is complete with a restaurant, bar and function facilities. The restaurant is open to the public so even if you don't golf, you can stop in for breakfast or dinner.

And for the kids in the family, Pirates Cove Mini Golf is within walking distance of the house. They have 2-courses to choose from as well as bumper boats and basketball hoops.

Ski: There are numerous Ski Resorts to choose from. The closest is Gunstock Ski resort which features full ski facilities as well as snow tubing. Gunstock is great for everyone, but is a smaller ski resort and is perfect for the beginner and families w/small children. For the more advanced skier you can head north to numerous ski resorts: Waterville Valley, Cannon Mountain, Tenney Mountain, Wilcat Mountain, Cranmore, Loon & Bretton Woods. There is plenty to do for all ages and abilities.
