This home is located in Alton Bay, on the coast of Lake Winnipesaukee. The Lake Winnipesaukee area is a great area for all year round including summer time water fun, fall foliage, winter time skiing, or snowmobiling, or spring time hiking. In the summer there is boating, fishing, tubing, water skiing, and swimming on the lake. The area also has lots of craft shows, antique fairs, and country fairs throughout the summer. It is a 10-15 minute ride (by car or boat) to Wolfeboro Center for shopping, a 20-25 minute ride to Laconia for water parks and other children activities, and a 35 minute ride to Meredith. You can take the Mount Washington from Alton Bay to any other part of the lake (Center Harbor, Laconia, Wolfeboro, Meredith). A great way to relax with your family or friends! In the winter you can downhill ski at Gunstock or other area mountains, cross country ski, snowmobile on the lake or through trails, ice skate, or ice fish.
