LAKE WINNIPESAUKEE WATERFRONT SUN AND SKI RETREAT, ALTON BAY

Alton Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to our year-round, waterfront house with the protection of a small cove AND beautiful views across Alton Bay. There is 108 feet of private waterfront with a U-shaped dock for two boats (up to 26 feet) with swimming off the end and sandy bottom. The cove provides a perfect area for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, etc. out of the hustle and bustle of the open lake. A beautiful bluestone patio abuts the shore.

The three bedroom home comfortably sleeps ten (one bedroom with two twin trundle beds sleeps four, two bedrooms with a queen bed in each, walkout basement suite with 2 foldaway cots, sleeper sofa). The entire front of the house has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining area, and living room opening to the wrap-around deck and lake. The house was gutted and luxuriously appointed during the winter 2008. We use the home frequently and pride ourselves in offering a clean and thoughtfully equipped rental. TOWELS AND LINENS are provided for a truly turnkey vacation experience.

We are a very active family and love all there is to do in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. In the summer we enjoy the lovely cove with our beautiful view of Alton Bay. We have a motorboat which we use to explore the islands, shorefront, different towns and restaurants on the lake. We love to water ski, tube, swim, kayak and jump on the water trampoline. In the winter, we are 10 minutes from Gunstock rec area with 51 Trails and over 220 acres to ski. We also like to ice skate and snowmobile.

Our house is located on a small, deep cove (approx 10 feet deep). The cove provides sheltered swimming, kayaking, etc from the boating action on the lake, yet you are right on Alton Bay with water access to all Lake Winnipesaukee has to offer. By boat, the town of Alton is 5 minutes south, Wolfeboro is 15 minutes across the lake, Weirs beach is about 30 minutes North, Meredith and Center Harbor are about 40 minutes North.

The house is luxuriously appointed with lots of exterior deck, dock and patio space so everyone can find a quite spot if they want. When everyone wants to get together, there is plenty of room inside the house, on the deck, patio or dock.

GREAT LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, & ON THE WATER!

Great location, beautiful, clean, & on the water!
  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a place on Lake Winnepesaukee for a family/friends weekend getaway (5/30/14-6/2/14). There were 10 of us. We settled on this place because the pictures looked great and the reviews were very positive. Even going in to the weekend with high expectations, we were still blown away. The house has a spacious layout, is clean, and you couldn't be closer to the water. There was more than enough room to accommodate all of us comfortably, and all of the amenities (including the Aqua Jump) were there as promised. Working with Brian was a pleasure - he was responsive, fair, and over-accommodating. I would recommend renting this property to anyone. I hope we have an excuse to come back in a few years - I wouldn't look anywhere else!

WEEKEND WARRIORS

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this property in Alton Bay as part of a weekend trip to compete in the Warrior Dash mud run/obstacle course event at Gunstock Mountain in Gilford. The house was under 15 minutes from Gunstock, which was a huge selling point for us. Our group included 10 people total, 7 "Warriors" and 3 spectators. The house and location were beautiful and the owner Brian was great. He spoke with me upon my group's arival and explained everything I needed to know for our stay. He truely wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay, which we all certainly did. Everything included in the listing was accurate and the property was wonderfully maintained.

The house included everything we needed and more. The house is actually better than it appears in the pictures. There was plenty of space in the common areas for the group to hang out and having the lake at the doorstep was a huge bonus. Upon return from Gunstock, covered in mud, we were able to just hop in the lake... no further clean-up required! The weather was great for mid-September and we were also able to get use out of the kayaks and water trampoline.

Although we did not venture from the house much other than for the race, there is a Hannaford market within a short drive. There were also a few restaurants and boat rental locations just down the road. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone considering a stay on Lake Winnipesaukee any time of year!

Owner's Response: Hi Brandon,
Thanks for the kind words and I am glad you had a good time at the house and enjoyed the activities at Gunstock! The pictures on Gunstocks website look like fun and I see lots of mud. I am impressed you did not leave a drop of mud in the house! Thanks again, you and your family are welcome anytime. Brian

LAKESIDE DREAM

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our two children (12 and 9) and my parents just returned from the most perfect week. This house is a diamond. I couldn't have asked for more. The home is beautiful, well appointed and so clean. Everything you need is there( cabinet full of games, dvd's, iron, life jackets etc) The cove is the perfect setting for relaxing and swimming. You can not tell from the pictures but there are steps into the lake. It is sandy by the steps with a few rocks, so it is easy to get in and out(it is not mucky and weedy). The water is deep by the water trampoline so I didn't have to worry about injuries. The kayaks were great. We were up every morning kayaking. Around the corner is Gilmans, where we rented paddel boards for the kids to try (only $70 for a 24 hour period). The cove was a wonderful safe place for them to get started. We also rented a wave runner and boat. I highly suggest making reservations on boats and wave runners a week before at least. We didn't feel safe biking on rt 11 but there is a bike trail nearby in Laconia. Also a great hiking trail five minutes down the road. I highly recommend Gunstock. It has a great zipline and rope course for kids and adults. I would also recommend the drive to Castle in the Clouds. It takes about 45 minutes but is well worth the trip. There is a cafe to have lunch with an amazing view of the lake(closes 4pm) on Thursdays they are open late for a jazz evening.

Brian was great during the whole process of renting this house. He was patient and so helpful with all my questions. I will be back next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for you great comments and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. As you indicated there is just so much to do in and around the lake, we are still having new experiences after 8 years! We look forward to seeing you next year!

EXCELLENT VACATION AND BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this home in 08/11. We loved it. The home was cozy and the view of the lake was spectacular. The house was fully equipped with everything you could ask for and the owner was friendly, warm and generous in his offerings. The photos did not do the house justice and I would definately recommend the property to anyone - except for the week we want it.

We have been to Alton Bay six times now and this house was wonderful. We will be coming back every year, if possible, and we always want to stay here.

I love this house and the owner was wonderful. Please do not hesitate to stay here!!!!

Owner's Response: Bill, it was great to meet you and your family/friends! I am so glad you had a nice time. I have tried to capture the essence of the house and location in pictures, but I have been told by many guests that it is even nicer than they thought. I look forward to seeing you in the future.

GREAT HOME, LOCATION, AND OWNER

  • 5 of 5
In June 2011, we and 3 other adult couples on a motorcycle vacation had the good fortune and pleasure of staying at this property. The home was beautiful and in immaculate condition. In fact, the pictures on the website do not begin to show the excellent condition and cleanliness of the home. The home is located on the lakefront with a nice deck and boat dock on a rather secluded cove which was very quiet and peaceful yet it is close to stores and several nice restaurants. This home is perfect for families with children in terms of its design as well as a beach for swimming with the use of a water trampoline and plastic kayaks. The owner could not have been more accommodating while never being intrusive. We would recommend this property to anyone.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING HOME AND FANTASTIC OWNER TO WORK WITH.

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house in mid-june as a getaway to propose to my girlfriend. From the moment I e-mailed the owner he was incredibly helpful with completing the rental, answering my questions, and even assisting with making sure the proposal went without a hitch. The house is completely renovated and the pictures do not show how beauitful this house actually is. Every little detail of the house is just right. There is plenty of room for people. The house has perfect views of the lake from nearly every room. This is just the perfect place to relax. We made good use of the lake. Since the house is in a protected cove we were able to swim, kayak, and even use the trampoline without any problems. The beds and linens provided were very comfortable. The kitchens are fully stocked. There are two great living rooms and three nice patios. There is a large dining table, great for a group meal. Everything in the house is precisely labeled, which makes the stay a lot easier. The owner has thought of everything. I recommend this place for any type of group looking for a pleasant lake stay. And for any future renters, be sure to make use of the fantastic shower during your stay!!
