About Anna

We bought this property as a couple and completed several renovations. We also enjoy coming here with for our family vacation getaways from the hustle and bustle of city life. We use this home ourselves once a month, and are happy to share it with our renters.

Why Anna chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

The location is ideal with a ski resort just 3 minutes/1 mile away and the 'Big Lake'. It is situated in a wooded, semi-secluded area, and the view from the bedrooms and the deck is well worth it!

What makes this house unique

There are so many unique benefits of this house! It's relatively new (built in 2004), and is decorated by us, to resemble a cozy getaway. The deck overlooks the mountain and has a gas grill.

It's a great place to relax with a special someone or a larger group - the house is a cozy experience in so many ways and during all four seasons!

The kids (and the young at heart) will have a blast skiing and enjoying the water sports activities that the lake has to offer!

Your rental comes with a private access pass to the Gunstock Acres Beach which is just down the road. Enjoy everything the mountain and the lake have to offer!

Perfect Ski Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful weekend away at Anna's ski house! We had planned a weekend of skiing at Gunstock and appreciated the convenience getting to and from the mountain so quickly, while also enjoying the lovely views and peace and quiet surrounding us. Anna's home is spacious with 4 bedrooms, but still manages to feel warm and homey inside. We found everything we needed to cook a couple meals for ourselves and Anna made some nice recommendations for the couple meals we chose to eat out. We were happy to have some great dining options so close by! Everything was clean and tidy, the beds were comfy and the linens and towels were soft and fluffy like new :). Although we went there to ski, we left Gilford wanting to come back in the summer to enjoy the lake and all the summer activities offered at Gunstock...we will certainly stay at Anna's home again, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy a beautiful part of NH :)

A nice little house in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights here in August and enjoyed our stay. The house is furnished comfortably and had more than enough space for us (2 adults + 1 kid) to spread out. It was really nice having a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities! The location was very convenient to get down to the beach (Ellacoya State Park; we checked out but did not use the much smaller private beach) or into nearby towns for activities. We had no issues with our visit and would come back if we find ourselves in the area again! Winter visitors should take note that most of the roads in the neighborhood are very steep, winding, and narrow - something to be aware of during skiing season.

I do recommend this rental!

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with my stay here. It was very clean & close to everything we planned to do. We came up for motorcycle week & they only thing I was a little disappointed in was the size of the deck. The pics made it look bigger but all 8 of us could not hang out there. My friends that stayed upstairs recommend getting mirrors in the bedrooms that way if there are 8 people staying not everyone will need the bathroom mirror. Thank you Anna, I would stay here again & I do recommend this rental!! 😀򐀠Chris
