I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, so I have a long-time connection with the Lakes Region. I'm a custom home builder and remodeler. I recently completed my second home and have started renting two properties on Homeaway. Nothing makes me happier than meeting some great people and hearing that they have had a terrific experience at the properties.
Dave Rice purchased this house in 2008
I started renovating this house in 2008 for my mom. She has since passed but got to enjoy it for a little bit. It was a labor of love and I get to help create other great memories for a lot of famiies and their friends.
The location is HUGE! It's a quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street but within walking distance to great entertainment establishments. I have put a lot of time into a beautiful array of plantings and a perfectly flat lawn. I take a lot of pride in the property (inside & out) and providing a great experience for my guests.
This is a beautiful, comfortable home with great views of the lake. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked as advertised making it very convenient for cooking meals. The location was perfect for kayaking and boating. Much of our time was spent outdoors in the yard. It was nice to have plenty of seating for eating and relaxing and we really enjoyed the fire pit. The owner is very accommodating and responded to all inquiries quickly - was a pleasure to work with.
We had a wonderful two week stay starting with Labor Day weekend. The property is immaculate and very well maintained. Everything is included - linens and towels, kitchen supplies, even toilet paper! Parking was spacious and my 22 foot boat fit at the dock. Unfortunately the lake level was over 18 inches below normal due to drought which made docking difficult- I had to resort to jumping into the water (I used waders) to push the boat in and out from the dock. That was not anything that Dave could control, of course. The location is nice and peaceful and the beach and swimming area is great. It is also quite convenient to many good restaurants and shopping opportunities. Overall we were very happy with our stay.
We love staying at Dave's lake house. The house was very clean and had all the amenities you could imagine. The lake is right out the back door and the adults and kids loved it! Perfect for our family and we can't wait to go back! We had so much fun paddle boarding, swimming, and kayaking. The nights were so peaceful overlooking the lake with a fire in the fire pit. Thanks Dave for answering all my questions and providing such a great environment for our getaway!
The property is perfect for anyone wanting to relax. We traveled with 3 families with young children and the slow sloping beach was perfect. We kayaked, swam and just enjoyed the property. It is close to everything you will need, and Dave is a very nice owner. I would highly recommend this property.
This was my first time staying at Lake Winnipesaukee!! I was always more of a beach person than lake... This house made me fall in love with the lake!!!! The private beach was the best!!! Three families stayed here and we all enjoyed it.. The beach was great for our little ones!!! The house itself was beautiful and the views from the living room windows were unreal!! I literally can't say enough about this property and I'm a very picky person!!! We defiantly will be renting this house again next time we vacation at the lake!!! The beds and pillows were amazing!! I only wish I checked out the brand of the pillows before I left!!! Ughhhh I wish I was back there now!!!!
Wonderful spot to vacation. Fully equipped and totally comfortable. Just bring friends , family and food and you're all set. I'll be back!
