Our seven bedroom lodge was built in 1915 as a private home. The cottages were built later. Our family purchased Colonial Pines in 1960. We continue to strive to maintain comfort and peacefulness while balancing the historical significance of the waterfront lodge and housekeeping cottages.
Gary and Cindy Kunz purchased this lodge in 1960

A deep well on the property assures excellent drinking water.
Get in touch with nature, perfect for boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing.
There are few locations on the 'big lake' that offer so much privacy without a long drive to the store and services. Restaurants and groceries are only 2 minutes by car or boat. Restaurants ranging from family fast food to gourmet meals are within a couple of miles.
Our location is in a quiet non-commercialized area, assuring our guests of privacy.
We were delighted by Colonial Pines from the minute we saw the cluster of
charming white cabins set amid a stand of tall pines on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. The nostalgic feel and beauty of The Lodge was beyond our expectations. Our bedroom was very comfortable and charmingly decorated with a beautiful view of the lake and mountain from our front window.
Cindy and Gary could not have been more welcoming, friendly, and accommodating hosts. We look forward to a return visit.
The owners Cindy and Gary make you feel welcomed right away, The property is charming and well maintained with a beautiful place on the Lake. In addition, they have canoes, kayaks and a sailboat available to rent. Their beach is sandy and has a nice drop off. We stayed in the Lodge and the rooms were authentically decorated with all the modern amenities. The individual cottages they have to rent are truly special with people coming back year after year. A wonderful place to unwind and enjoy authentic New Hampshire!
