About Dave Rice

I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, so I have a long-time connection with the Lakes Region. I'm a custom home builder and remodeler. I recently completed my second home and have started renting two properties on Homeaway. Nothing makes me happier than meeting some great people and hearing that they have had a terrific experience at the properties.

Dave Rice purchased this house in 2008

Why Dave Rice chose Gilford

I started renovating this house in 2008 for my mom. She has since passed but got to enjoy it for a little bit. It was a labor of love and I get to help create other great memories for a lot of famiies and their friends.

What makes this house unique

The location is HUGE! It's a quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street but within walking distance to great entertainment establishments. I have put a lot of time into a beautiful array of plantings and a perfectly flat lawn. I take a lot of pride in the property (inside & out) and providing a great experience for my guests.

Wonderful home with everything you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5
The property is very well set-up for a great vacation. The location is perfect - right on the lake and close to Gunstock Mountain, hiking trails and outlets. The house has plenty of room to spend time with friends and family and the beds are all comfortable - great pillows too! Dave was extremely accommodating and the house is very well maintained with lots of extras, I don't think I've ever rented a property that had everything we needed but this one did! I would definitely recommend renting this property.

Our stay in Gilford

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was EXCEPTIONAL! The pictures and description of the property were spot on! VERY well taken care of! Clean, welcoming, comfortable, GREAT VIEW! The owners thought of EVERY detail to make our stay truly a "home away from home"! Our two small children loved playing at the beach right out the back door and we also rented paddle boards right down the street. We even made use of the boat dock with a friends boat and enjoy cruising around the lake! I would highly recommend staying here! We look forward to enjoying another visit here in the future! Thank you Dave!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Very clean, plenty of beds, great layout for family or a guys getaway weekend!

Having the dock steps from the house was awesome. NH State liquor store is right up the road along with a great meat house for bar-b-que grilling. Great location, marina right up the road for boat launch. Overall great stay and owner is very professional and easy to work with. Our only regret is not bringing yard games for the well landscaped lawn!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This property was gorgeous! My family had an amazing time. We really enjoyed being right on the water with our own beach. The private backyard was perfect to play games with the kids. We were a short drive to all the places we wanted to go. We will definitely be back next year! Thank you Dave for a wonderful week in your lake house!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation! Thanks for the great review.
We'd love to get a picture of the 4 1/2 lb bass you caught off of the dock…
It would be a pleasure to have you and your family back any time.

Great location-Great house

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous place to stay. The house is like new with all the amenities you could ask for. The beach was perfect for the young children in our family, the sand is nice and the water is shallow with a sandy bottom for at least 100 feet. Anyone would be happy to vacation here for a week and you will definetly be sorry your vacation is over when it is time to leave.

Absolutely wonderful home and owner!

  • 5 of 5
Being the type of person who likes to entertain and make sure everyone is comfortable and happy, I totally appreciated the effort the owner made to do the same for us. Not only was he accommodating to my request to come a little early, he made sure that every detail was taken care of. The house has been very lovingly renovated and is absolutely wonderful. It's actually more beautiful than the pictures. I felt like I was in a very nice bed and breakfast- if only I could have had someone make me breakfast!

Thank you, Dave, for making our stay so enjoyable and for all the extras you do to make people feel so welcomed and comfortable.
