About Lynne and Bob

We spent so much time boating on the lake and visiting the lakes region that we purchased our lakehouse in 2001. It was a dream come true! We're happy to share our home with our renters and enjoy it when we can also!

Lynne and Bob purchased this condo in 2001

Why Lynne and Bob chose Laconia

South Down Shores is a beautiful lakeside community close to so many attractions. Lake Winnipesaukee is a year-round destination. Summer brings swimming, boating and watersports. It's our Winter playground for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and skating! The Fall is a beautiful time for hiking and leafpeeping. And the Spring brings quiet boat rides on the lake. We love it here!

What makes this condo unique

Our home is open-concept. The airy kitchen has an island and large dining table for family dinners and card games. The living room is comfortable and cozy and open to the back patio. The 4 bedrooms can accomodate 10+ so there's lots of room for visitors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lynne & Bob,

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed being at your lovely house. It was so comfortable, and we especially appreciated all the natural light that comes in. We spent time reading/going in the water/watching the boats, exploring the area and could not have asked for better weather!

Thanks for allowing us to spend some time there.

Excellent Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property with out of state friends over the weekend in October. The ammenities listed were above expectation - the back deck/patio was well laid out and inviting, the furnishings were comfortable and the unit was very clean. The location was within reasonable driving distance of attractions and great restaurants, like JT's BBQ. The owner was courteous enough to set out signs requesting that there be no smoking in the unit - I would suggest adding that to the property description.

The South Down's community is such a fun location. The beach and grounds were beautiful. We always stay here with our family and my sister's for a great lake location. Totally worked for us. Can't always find a large place to stay. Highly recommend.

A memorable vacation with my family

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great choice for my family of 4 and our friends with 2 kids. Everyone had their own bedroom. The deck out back is a great place to hang out after boating on the lake all day. My wife loved the kitchen too. Thanks Bob and Lynne - South Down Shores is a great family spot.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a girls getaway weekend at this condo. It was the perfect spot for us to relax! There are plenty of bedrooms and the open layout of the house meant we could all hang out together. Dinners out each night at one of the many nearby restaurants. We enjoyed the Spa in Meredith and shopped at the Titlon outlets. Most of all we enjoyed relaxing in the adirondack chairs on the water. Thank you so much for an enjoyable stay and making us feel welcome in your home. The girls plan to return this Fall for a spa/shopping getaway. - Juli
