About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 3/4 Bath, sleeps 8-10

Our 3-Bedroom home sits on the shores of beautiful Lake Winnisquam. When you enter the front door you will be amazed at how open and spacious, yet warm and inviting our home is. The living room features vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, hardwood flooring and lots of over-sized windows to let the natural sunlight in. The house is open concept with the living room flowing into the kitchen and dining room area which makes it great for family gatherings and entertaining. The kitchen also features a breakfast bar for a quick snack or less formal meal for the kids. There is a large deck off of the dining room that comes complete with patio furniture, a grilling area and stairs to dock and beach.

The entire main floor has been recently painted. We have added a 3/4 bathroom on the lower level across from the master bedroom. We have also just recently had the entire retaining wall around the shoreline replaced and upgraded to include granite stairs into the sandy beach area.

The lake isn't just for summer vacations, there is so much to do and see all year long. We're close to all the ski resorts, snowmobile trails are all around us, Weirs Beach, NH International Speedway just to name a few. Don't wait, book your next vacation today - you'll be glad you did.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for the use of your lake house. We have had the most amazing time here. The skiing at Gunstock and the snow is just what we were here for and neither disappointed. If only we had snow like this in the UK. I imagine it's just as good in the summer. Thanks again Dianne for your help.

Awesome house, incredible location, everything was perfect! The owner is a PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH!

  • 5 of 5

The house is a really great place, great location, great lake access, well stocked (pots/pans, games, etc.). The downstairs is finished with lots of space for an air mattress or whatever luggage you bring. The upstairs has a really nice "great room" that overlooks the lake. There is ample seating and plenty of room to spread out. This room is an open concept and connects to both the kitchen and dining area. The lake is probably 15 feet from the house. The area between the house and lake is level and connects directly to the dock area. All of the pictures were accurate and everything was as it was described, or better. There is shopping, grocery stores, etc. with 5 minutes of the house. However, when you are at the house you feel very secluded and can't hear any traffic as it is a dead end road. It's a great location!

The owner, Dianne, is wonderful to deal with. She quickly responds to emails and she is VERY accommodating - THANK YOU!

I highly reccomend this house, you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: That's awesome!!! I'm so glad you all had a great time for Fishing Derby weekend. The location and the open concept are what guests seems to love the most. The house is super close to anything you may need. And at the end of a very active day, it's nice to be able to go back and just relax. We would love to have you all back again...ANYTIME!!!

Great vacation spot no matter what time of year!

  • 5 of 5

We actually used this house to stay in the winter for the pond hockey tournament so our outdoor use was a bit limited, but I can't imagine how great this place would be in the summer. I think our group would have much rather stayed in and enjoyed the house more than we were actually able to.

We fit 6 guys here with no problem, got to wake up to a beautiful view, utilized the fireplace and were incredibly comfortable here. We even got to enjoy some of the old video game classics in the basement!

Thanks to Dianne for being available and incredibly hospitable!

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend in December, and it was the best stay we've ever had in New Hampshire! The home was so welcoming and comfortable, and it made for the perfect relaxing vacation. Even in the winter, the view was beautiful, and we can't wait to see what it looks in the summer!

Beautiful home on the lake....perfect place to gather before a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed here before my oldest daughters wedding. The master bedroom downstairs was perfect for my daughter to get ready in. The house had plenty of places to sleep and a nice big dining room table to gather at, and a lot of the girls enjoyed the jetted tub :) I couldn't have asked for a better day for a November wedding. We took photos out on the deck by the water it was great! I want to give Dianne a HUGE thank you for being so sweet and a great hostess. I'm thankful that she shared her home with us. I highly recommend this place and definitely want to go back!

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure having your family stay at our lake house for your daughter's wedding weekend. That morning, the weather wasn't looking all that great. But as the fog burned off and the clouds scattered, it turned into a beautiful fall November day. We're so glad you all enjoyed your stay and truly hope your daughter had the wedding of her dreams. We are beyond thrilled that our lake house was part of her very special day. We wish her a lifetime of happiness. Our door is always open to your family. We would love to have you back again anytime!

Thanksgiving at the lake

  • 5 of 5

This year we decided to meet our son and his family at the lake Winnisquam NH. Couldn't get a better house than Dianne's. Or a better hostess for that matter. House is lovely and it was decorated for the holiday for us. Spacious and clean.Gorgeous views of the lake.

I baked our turkey in the oven and it came out perfect. Even with bad weather this year on Thanksgiving we had a good time. Hope to do the same next year. Thank you Dianne.
