If you are a large family or group, looking for a house to rent on Lake Winnipesaukee, we have a delightful, Victorian style house for you!

Downstairs, there are two bedrooms, a living room with a working gas fireplace and work desk, a fully-equipped, eat-in kitchen, a laundry room, and a bathroom with a tub/shower combo.

If you just want to take it easy, you can relax on the full, wrap-around porch, or on the garage roof deck. By day, it has an outstanding view of the lake and mountains. In the evening, enjoy the clear night sky while watching the colorful lights of boats out on the lake. On Friday nights, the fireworks are set off right across the street from the house.

The house has an unbeatable location in Weirs Beach. You can walk to everything. Walk across the street to the beautiful public beach and park. Walk down the boardwalk to the docks, where you can take a boat cruise across the lake.

Castle Rest

  • 4 of 5

We had a large family gathering at Castle Rest July 28th-August 4th. . The pros - This house is great for large families! It is very kid friendly for the most part. The location to the beach and other activities in Weirs beach is perfect. The younger kids loved the play house in the yard. We used the TV room in the back as the kids space for sleeping and hanging out and that worked out really well. The front porch is great with amazing views of the lake. We spent a lot of time on the front porch. The cons - As much as this house is kid friendly, we were told after we found it that the kids were not to use the kids playroom in the basement because of a "moisture problem." This was very disappointing to them as there were tons of toys and dress up clothes in that room. The room was open and advertised but we were told not to have the kids there and to lock the room. The house is in desperate need of some new furniture! Many chairs were falling apart and you had to be careful before sitting in some. The beds were comfortable over all. The porch is the highlight of the house so it is unfortunate that there are not comfy and nicer chairs out there. Overall we would stay here again, especially if we hear that the house has been updated. We had a great week in Weirs Beach!

Owner's Response: Due to the heavy rains this season, the basement has been damp and in need of constant dehumidification. We were concerned if children were to play there for long periods. We are pleased that the children discovered the outside playhouse and enjoyed it. We recently installed two new overstuffed chairs in the living room, and have scheduled several other pieces to be reupholstered and restored this fall. We also recently added four new adirondack chairs, which can be used on the patio or the porch, and will be adding more.

Fun Vacation - Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Having the porch and top of garage deck made this vacation fabulous. We were able to people watch, boat watch and just enjoy the beautiful lake and mountain views. The kitchen was well stocked except it only had 9 forks and we were 17. I am sure they get thrown out by accident. Linens were provided and were very nice. There was not an area inside were we could all eat together, but the porch and deck were great for that. If you need all the sleeping accommodations, just note that not all rooms afford complete privacy. There are 2 rooms upstairs that one must walk through to get down stairs. Great for kids though. I thought of putting up a tension rod with a sheet, but didn't bother. Overall, the location is the best possible and we really enjoyed our family vacation. PS. do not place anything by the garbage cans, because you never know when they get emptied and the workers assume everything in that area is garbage.

Great Location, Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It is the perfect size for large or multiple families. Plenty of space to spread out. The covered porch and garage deck are the perfect places to just relax and eat outside. The proximity to the beach cannot be beat. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We will definitely return if we come back to this area.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This house is a beautiful home that we had the joy of staying at for 7 days. The view was amazing every morning waking up sitting on the porch watching the sun rise over the trees and mountains. The house was very convenient for my stay because it is in the middle of everything. Being able to sit on the porch and watch the kids play football on the beach was great. The house has such a home feeling. The property is beautiful and very spacious. The rooms are very big and having a big kitchen so everyone can sit at and eat was very nice. This house had it all. We can not wait to go back next year.

Car: recommended

Walk down the sidewalk to the center of the action in Weirs Beach, where there are arcades, bumper car rides, and mini-golf courses. Walk to breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There are several restaurants to choose from, all within easy walking distance.

From July 3rd through Labor Day, there's free entertainment on the boardwalk - fireworks and concerts. In mid-June, Weirs Beach is home to the world famous Laconia Motorcycle Week rally - 3rd largest in the USA with 300,000 in attendance. Other events of significant interest to visitors include NASCAR Cup races in mid July and mid-September at the nearby New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and early August's Soul Fest, a Christian rock festival at the nearby Gunstock recreation area.
