This is the waterfront vacation home you've been searching for!

This fabulous lake house is ideally located on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee with 100 feet of waterfront and gorgeous long views of the lake, Gunstock and other surrounding mountains. The location cannot be beat and from the moment you arrive you won't want to leave. It's right on Winnipesaukee in Sanders Bay, which provides calm, super-clean water perfect for swimming and westerly exposure which provides fantastic afternoon sun and amazing sunsets.

The outdoor space is amazing with a fantastic private 15' x 50' dock (it's huge!) as well as an oversize wrap-around deck, both of which are wired with exterior stereo speakers. There is a sandy swim area on the side of the dock and deep water (10 feet) at the end of the dock, which is perfect for jumping off all day long!!

You'll love this location on a quiet dead end road, yet minutes to all Lakes Region amenities; shopping, restaurants, golf, skiing, movie theater, airport & many attractions. Gunstock Mountain is just 10 minutes away and in the summer they have lots of activities including a zip lining.

You'll feel immediately comfortable and relaxed when you walk through the doors of this vacation home and take in the gorgeous lake views from every room. The living area is open and spacious with lots of sun and room for everyone. The beautiful custom kitchen has every amenity for your comfort. Come spend your summer vacation at 'Tranquility' and relax and enjoy the beauty of the lake and all it has to offer. It's everything you'd ever want in a vacation home on Lake Winnipesaukee.

There is a tandem (2-person) kayak at the property available for your use.

Why Heather McKay chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

We'd been looking to buy a vacation home on Winnipesaukee for many years, but just couldn't find the right one. From the moment we saw this one we knew it's perfect for family getaways. Gorgeous views, plenty of room for a couple of families to enjoy.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property. The house was so welcoming, the view was stunning, and the location was perfect. Right up the street from a beautiful public beach. Outstanding customer service. Heather was available to answer any questions we had leading up and during our weekend stay. All around wonderful experience.

Great view, great dock, and plenty of sleeping quarters

  • 5 of 5

Spent two weeks here and we had a blast. The dock was very spacious, with a great view of the beautiful NH sunsets. There are some stairs to deal with, so if that could be an issue, be advised. I would recommend this property to others. On a side note, you can hear concerts across the water from the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion (formerly Meadowbrook), but they end at 11 pm. The place was very clean, towels and sheets fresh, and some minor supplies were left behind (perhaps from previous renters). Great restaurants, Sawyers (ice cream), and shopping all nearby.

Perfect location for a Lake Winnipesaukee vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful home on Lake Winnipesaukee. We were a party of 9 and all fit very comfortably. The home is located in a great spot on the lake, near Fay's Boat Yard. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and then rented a fast boat for a couple days to enjoy water sports. Very convenient! The home has a good sized kitchen and nice living room. The lake is not congested with a lot of boaters near this house, which is really nice! We highly recommend this beautiful property for your next stay. Heather is a very gracious host who thinks of everything to make your stay more enjoyable.

The property is just as listed, every detail and then some. The dock is just perfect for sitting on and relaxing all day in the sun, and can accommodate two boats without any problems. We totally enjoyed the front deck during the day because it had an awning to get out of the hot sun and at night it was our favorite place to sit and enjoy the sunset and play games. We were a large group of 12 adults and 4 small children, and there was enough room for all of us without any issues. No need to bring anything from home for the kitchen everything you could want was in it. At night there were concerts going on across the water at the outdoor concert venue and you were able to hear top name bands which was an added extra. The location was perfect for boating, close to Weirs, Meredith and Wolfeboro. As for Heather the owner of the property she is amazing to work with from the beginning to end. She responded promptly to all questions and she has added a personal touch to all parts of the house so it made you feel right at home. We would recommend this home to anyone interested in it and hope to be able to return ourselves to it. It was an amazing week!

The perfect place to spend a family vacation . . . "Tranquility" and fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious with a beautiful view of the lake. The whole house was light and airy. The kitchen had great appliances and great cabinets. The deck was fantastic. We had all our adult children with us and we dined on the deck. The dock was incredible. We jumped in the lake, used the kayak and introduced the grandkids to Lake Winnipesaukee. The house is in a perfect location with easy access to dining and entertainment. Don't miss ice cream at Sawyer's! We had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend renting this home. Heather McKay was a joy to work with, she answered questions promptly and equipped this home with everything one might possibly need on vacation.
