About Dave Rice

I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, so I have a long, close connection to the area. I'm a custom home builder and remodeler and truly love seeing people have a great experience in the spaces I build.

Dave Rice purchased this house in 2012

Why Dave Rice chose Gilford

I bought this property in 2012 and did a complete tear down of the previous home. Having previously done 9 houses, I built this home for myself, so it has tons of amenities and creature comforts. The location is ideal with a ski resort 2 minutes away and the 'Big Lake' 4 minutes away. It was hard work getting some of the trees down, but the view from every room was worth it!

What makes this house unique

There are so many unique benefits of this house! It's all brand new, from the solid, well-built, (crown moldings to the radiant heat floors),home itself to all the furnishings. I situated the house so that there are views of the 'Big Lake' from every room. The large deck overlooks the lake and has a gas grill & fire pit. Both the deck and inside have abundant seating - perfect for entertaining. The Sonos sound system (inside & out) enhances any mood. It's a great place to relax with a special someone or a large group - the house is a luxury experience in so many ways and during all four seasons!

The kids (and the young at heart) will have a blast playing air hockey and ping pong on the basement level and no worries about disturbing those upstairs.

Your rental comes with access to a private dock & launch at another home I own/rent on the lake with space for a 26 ft. boat and a jet ski. Enjoy everything the mountain and the lake have to offer!

One of my favorite weekend getaways!

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends decided to go on a ski getaway for a weekend. After staying here we decided this was the perfect location and home for the trip! The house is only half a mile from Gunstock. The views were spectacular. The house itself was very cozy and we instantly felt comfortable. There was much attention to detail and everything we could possibly need was provided. From a wide range of spices for our cooking needs to heating satellite television and board games for entertainment, everything was taken care of. As mentioned in previous reviews the Sonos sound system was a definite plus. The volume in each room is adjustable to fit every guest's needs. David was very helpful during the reservation process and very timely in his responses to my MANY questions. He was there to greet us upon arrival and give us a nice tour of the house. This place was a perfect getaway for our group of 11 and we hope to return again!

A beauty not to be missed!

  • 5 of 5
We took our fall trip 3 months ago in October. One of the best times of the year to be in N.E. With having family and friends nearby, it was a bonus! Either way, we had such a marvelous time. And to take in all the home had to offer- kept us smiling! From the extensive ammenaties, to the added touches you would not find in most rentals throughout. Despite just 2 of us. I say no matter what- This RENTAL IS A BEAUTY and a must! We so enjoyed our week stay! So much so when time permits we are leaving Florida and heading back up! Could not get any better. The sound system on throughout the home, and outside, was top notch! Lake Winnipesaukee is not to be missed...Especially grilling out on the deck overlooking the lake, music on...And when the sun goes down the firepit goes on! Something no one should miss! P.S. Love the pumpkin on the table = > See you again soon!! :) Many Thanks Again for the Wonderful Hospitality!!

Beautiful Propery!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Eleven adults stayed at this property for a family holiday weekend. We enjoyed the magnificent views from every room. Dave and Kristin were incredible hosts and take pride in their well kept property. Our son in law loved the Sonos and woke us all up to "who let the Dogs out" each morning. The sound system in this house is amazing. The kitchen has everything you need so don't pack up your kitchen for this property. You will feel like you are at home with all the dishware and glassware and spices you need. The game room kept everyone laughing and well entertained. All eleven of us fit around the island in the kitchen while both eating meals and playing Cards against humanity. Good time had by all. We will certainly return to this property!!!!

Great. The owner is very thoughtful

  • 5 of 5
Came up the Wednesday before thanksgiving with 11 family members. Dave (the owner) was so thoughtful that he bought a Turkey pan for us to use. We were snowed in a bit but that was just fine with everyone. The place is so nice, Dave's attention to detail is awesome. He really thinks of everything. We had a very nice three days at Dave's place and are sure to return!!
