Gilford House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, pull out couch and daybed, 2 baths with showers, outdoor shower

This restored Vintage Lakehouse is a stones throw away from the crystal clear waters of Lake Winnipesaukee. This is the house you remember from your childhood and the one your children will remember when they get older. 2,000 sq/ft home with hardwood floors, exposed beams, open concept living room, dining room and sun room all with over sized windows looking out to Smith Cove. 215 feet of water frontage with a large deck to sit and relax and watch the boats go by.The dock will easily accommodate a 27 foot boat. No boat? Use the 2 kayaks to fish or put around the cove.Easy walk to Gilford Beach or drive and we'll supply the parking passes. Great food in the area. Meadowbrook concert arena and a drive-in movie theatre are minutes away.

Just a short drive to Gunstock Mountain makes this a great weekend getaway.

Life as it should be!: Although you're tucked away and feel like you're light years away from it all, all the fun you want is just around the corner. There's the beach, Fays boat yard where you can rent a boat for the day or the week, Meadowbrook with all its concerts, the Drive-in by Weirs Boulevard, Outlet shopping....its endless fun. Or get up early and take the kayaks out and catch some trout or bass. Listen to the loons at night while you cook up something fresh on the grill. It really is the way life should be!

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying here for the last 5 years and will continue for as long as we can. Maryanne and Kim are the best hosts and are always there if we need them. The home is always clean well maintained. I would recommend to my friends and family

Great Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Lake Winnipesaukee this year. The Lake House was better than advertised. Great location on Lake Winni and a well-kept and furnished interior.

Amazing get away

  • 5 of 5

It took me about a month to decide if I wanted to write a review or not. Well, It was out of pure selfishness that I did want to, because, I wanted to keep this home a hidden secret. My family and I fell in love with this home. We had made all of these plans to visit the area, go zip lining, shopping, mini golf and to Weirs Beach. Once we were there we never left except to go to the market for more groceries. The swimming off the dock, fishing, sunbathing, grilling and just sitting talking and laughing all made new memories for us. The home was clean and very spacious and had all the accommodations that we needed. The owners, Kim and Mary Anne were absolutely wonderful. I hope they will have us back again for many years to come. Thank you both.

Best on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a few houses on the lake and this home is by far the best. Location is great for all activities either water or land and Mary Anne and Kim are great hosts. We will be back next year

The perfect lake house & much more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Gilford, NH was "Tough" & relaxing at the same time. The house is amazing. It has enough room for 8 adults. The clean, fresh sets of sheets for each of us made our night!

The view of the lake each morning was stunning. After our "Tough Mudder" event, we crawled back to the house. We loved being able to rinse off in the lake from the dock/ladder. Plenty of room outside for us all to drip dry. Wish we could have stayed longer to use the grill & chimney/fire pit.

The house is close to all local necessities...Dunkin Dounuts, Hanafin's grocery story, Patrick's Restaurant. We would all come back to enjoy the house with our families.

Thank you for letting our 1st on-line rental be successful.

This lakehouse sits on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in the town of Gilford New Hampshire. Gilford has a gorgeous town beach that is within walking distance. Attractions include The Mount Washington or 'The Mount', a large lake boat that stops at all the major points around the lake such as 'The Weirs', Meredith town docks, Wolfboro docks, and Alton town docks, picking up passengers along the way. Meadowbrook is a large outdoor concert arena and is a couple of miles away ( Weirs beach has all the rides and ice cream shops with lots of people watching, All of this is close by. Fays Boat Yard is 4 houses away and offers boat rentals to get you out on the Lake. Sawyers Dairy Bar is a great way to end the day and thats just down the street. Lots of fun for all ages. Email me for links to all the areas highlights.
