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.

best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was perfect. The house was very clean and comfortable. My family of 4 went and there was something for everyone. My children ages 4 & 13 had a great time. The owners are really accomodating and very nice.

I will definately rent again.

Grocery stores, Weirs Beach, arcades and restaurants are close by.

Owner's Response: No Stress - That is the perfect way to describe a vacation at our "Home Away From Home". Wether your a family, a young couple or just a group of really good friends this has got to be THE BEST place to just relax, unwind and escape from the realities of everyday life. There is so much to do, from site-seeing, to water activities or just parking yourself in a lounge chair and doing absolutely nothing. It is impossible to come here and not leave without a feeling of inner peace. Thank you to all of our guests - past, present & future, you have all been wonderful.

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.

Marvelous accommodations for a Highland Bike Park season ender!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning well maintained home in a beautiful setting with all the fixings you would need for a fantastic weekend away! Owners were very responsive to questions and were great to deal with. Looking forward to returning next season when the weather is warmer so we can skip the hot showers and clean off in the lake!
