About Brian Caple

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.

Why Brian Caple chose Alton Bay

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. We are 1/2 a mile from Mt Major, a lovely hike with beautiful views of the lake. We are also 15 minutes from Gunstock Resort with year round activities such as skiing/snowboarding, zip lines, aerial rope adventures and Segway tours.

What makes this house unique

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 vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
My family, and extended family rented this home in mid-summer. It is definitely not a cottage. The home was lovely and well decorated - the bathrooms felt like you were staying at a 5-star resort. Everything was there for us - from big fluffy towels, board games for the family, life jackets, and it did not lack for anything in the kitchen.

We rented a pontoon boat, and it was extremely easy to park it in this quiet cove. The kids ( and adults) loved the water trampoline and kayaks. The decks overlooking the lake were used from early morning to late at night - they were well protected so when the sun was shining, it was very warm despite the cooler morning temperatures.

Brian was well prepared for guests. Every switch in the house was labeled - no guessing involved and the book of local activities was very helpful. The one cooler day during the week, we headed to Gunstock for activities for the kids. Wish we had made reservations for the zipline - it was booked for hours. Next time!

Hoping to get the family back next year - and we have requests from other family members who want to join us as they saw our pictures and heard our stories!

Great Vacation Spot for Active Families

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful week at this lovely property! We are a family of five, but during the second half of the week we had a group of ten, including six older teens and twenty-somethings. The house handled the group extremely well. It is even more spacious than it appears on-line. The kids enjoyed having the lower level to themselves, but there was plenty of room for all on the main level. The house is very clean, nicely decorated, and well-stocked with just about anything and everything one would need...linens/towels, cookware/utensils, spices, games, life jackets, etc. As other reviewers mentioned, the owner was very pleasant to deal with. He stopped by to meet us and offered suggestions such as local activities, places to eat, and good fishing spots.
There is plenty to do here for "kids" of all ages. The aqua jump and kayaks were a hit with our group. There is also hiking nearby, as well as a variety of activities at Gunstock Mountain. We had a boat, so spent a lot of time on the water. The house is located in a peaceful cove, so it's also a great spot for those who just want to sit outside on the deck and relax or read a book. I highly recommend it for families/groups of all ages, and I would definitely consider booking another vacation here!

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.

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.
