About John or Virginia

We've enjoyed our Lake House as a family for many years, and look forward to sharing it with you!

John or Virginia purchased this house in 1988

Why John or Virginia chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

We were blessed as a family to be able to grow up on Winnipesaukee, and

have always appreciated its beauty and all the adventure and activity that

it has to offer. When you're at the Lake, you can experience a sense of peacefulness

and retreat that's hard to match.

What makes this house unique

Our home is meant for families to enjoy together. It's located toward the end of a private cul-de-sac road, is situated in a wonderful, family-oriented neighborhood and offers spectacular panoramic views of Lake Winnipesaukee. You'll feel as though you're away from it all yet still be only 5 minutes drive from all your commercial needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Alton! The house was perfect for our needs as my mother-in-law and father-in-law joined us for a few days so the downstairs bedroom and en suite bathroom allowed them to have their own space while my husband, myself and our 2 young kids had plenty of room to ourselves upstairs. The home was spacious, clean, bright and it was an added bonus to have the sunroom and the finished basement as another option for us to play and/or relax.







More than anything we enjoyed the views and the expansive yard. We spent hours outside with our 2 young sons (3 and 1) either playing ball, running around or just playing on a big blanket. My 3 year old loved the sand pit, the dock and still talks about making/enjoying his first s'more at the fire pit.







I especially want to thank John and Diane for their hospitality, their professionalism and their responsiveness. It was truly a pleasure to work with you. I would highly recommend this home for a family vacation!

Simply Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of girls stay for a couple nights last month for a bachelorette weekend - the entire stay was simply amazing!! We had great weather both days and literally spent the entire time down by the dock/water. The house is perfectly situated right on the lake. We couldn't believe how crystal clear the water was! The weather was so nice that we didn't get much use of the game room downstairs - but I would imagine it would be perfect if we had had a rainy day. We had 7 girls total - and everyone had enough space to sleep and spread out. The fire pit was great for making smores - just make sure to stop and grab some firewood at the nearby Hannafords about 10 minutes away! The deck off the kitchen gets sun from sunrise to sunset! And the sunsets over the lake are absolutely gorgeous. John was very helpful and was only a phone call away if we needed anything, while also giving us complete privacy. We left a couple things behind when we left and John went out of his way to mail them back to us!! We had an absolutely unforgettable weekend and might even consider making this an annual girls trip!! Thanks again John & Virginia!! Mallory & Crew

Winnipesaukee Lake Front Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from an absolutely wonderful family reunion/vacation at The Lakehouse on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. Parts of our family from New York, Michigan, and California gathered for a graduation celebration and reunion. The owner was especially gracious and welcoming when we arrived, ensuring that we were oriented to property and had a contact should there be any "issues." There were none. The property was perfect - exactly as depicted and expected, as well as spotless and convenient in all ways. We loved the many and varied living spaces in the 3 story house that allowed excellent spaces for full family gatherings as well as a bit of quiet time alone. The men wore themselves out playing foosball and pocket pool on the one rainy morning and a few evenings. Everyone particularly enjoyed the fire pit and spectacular sunsets. We also rented a pontoon boat for a couple of days and thoroughly enjoyed cruising the lake and finding wonderful eateries and ice cream, as well as spots to swim. We highly recommend the property and all of its conveniences, and will consider a return to the area again.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your family enjoyed your time at our Lake House. Building family memories is dear to our hearts and one of the primary reasons we choose to share it with other families! The Foosball and Pool tables in the basement tend to appeal to all ages ~ sounds like your group had a wonderful time. The lake truly is another entire world to explore, so glad you were able to discover it for yourselves! It would be our sincere pleasure to welcome you back anytime.

An Amazing Place to Get Together With Family!

  • 5 of 5

This property is just stunning! It has almost everything you can think of for your summer vacation! Our kids spent most of their time in the basement, watching TV, or learning how to play pool or foosball. The adults really enjoyed the nice big porch and grilling out! The fire pit is also a hit...just cover yourself in bug spray!

If I HAD to pick a con for this rental, I would say that maybe it isn't as private as we usually prefer, but no big deal! We still had an awesome time! We rented a boat as well, but it was a little scary getting it in and out of the docking area. It's kind of rocky, but if you're an experienced boater, it shouldn't be a problem!

We just wanted to thank the owners for such a fantastic place to stay! I'm sure we will be back in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5-star review of our Lake House on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee! We are so pleased that both kids and adults enjoyed many of the unique features of our home - our huge porch with abundant seating, our large fire pit perfectly positioned to enjoy the remarkable sunsets and count the stars, and a game room designed to entertain for hours. We are fortunate to be near the cul-de-sac in a family-oriented neighborhood, and our 40 foot dock, protected by a rocky breakwater, gives ample room for a boat, jet-ski, wave runner, or whatever your pleasure. Agreed, bug spray (and sunscreen!) should be on every guest's packing list. Our huge grassy yard invites you outside to enjoy the hammock, lawn sports, or just pull up a lounge chair with a good book and soak in the stunning view. Your kind words mean so much. Please return soon!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying here with a group of friends, and again the setting and experience was wonderful.

The house has amazing water access and dock for a boat, which is a must to rent or bring for the stay! Plus it is ample sized to allow everyone their own space and relaxation time, while also having great indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy together.

Sunset on the dock with a glass of your taking is always breathtaking!

Finish the evening with a fire under the stars, and life has never seemed better!

We shall return!

Mark and Alison!

Owner's Response: We absolutely love returning guests! Sounds like you thoroughly enjoyed the Lake House, the Fire Pit, and the multiple gathering spots on the property, not to mention magnificent Lake Winnipesaukee! The sunsets truly are breathtaking from our home and dock, and different every night. Consider yourself invited to return again and continue the tradition. You are always welcome!

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 (ages 8-80) had a wonderful time! The house is clean and spacious and in a great location. Fun was had by all from shopping to Monkey Trunks to boating, fishing, swimming and making smores over the fire pit. Time spent together at a lake house is something our group has been doing for many years and this house was definitely a delight. Great owner! Thanks John and Diane!

Family trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from 7/11-7/18. There were 11 of us including our 3 kids, their spouses and 3 grandkids. There was something for everyone and we had a great time. The house was well appointed and in a great location. We rented a pontoon boat and it parked easily at the dock. This is a location we will definitely visit again. Can't recommend any stronger!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. We love hearing that you enjoyed your time together at the Lake House. What a great way for several generations to gather to make some new memories! And how terrific that you were able to rent a boat and enjoy some playtime ON the water! Lake Winnipesaukee can become a playground until itself...25 miles of crystal clear water, with lots of sand bars to anchor to and swim from, quiet coves and islands to discover, tubing and waterskiing possibilities and (5) towns with free Public Docks to pull your boat up to while you explore their waterfront ice cream stands, outdoor dining, parks and shopping. We'd welcome you all back in a heartbeat!
