It has wonderful outdoor space with 120’ of waterfront, a 45’ permanent dock, perched sandy beach, sandy swimming area, custom outdoor patio, a gently sloping lawn perfect for outdoor games, a deck with patio furniture, gas grill and gorgeous views of beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee.

You will feel comfortable and relaxed in this wonderful vacation home. The home is 3226 sq. ft. and has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, gas fireplace, cable, Wi-Fi, central air, heat, a 60” HD TV in the family room plus 3 bedroom flat screens, and a fully equipped kitchen with all the amenities you’ll need. The main floor has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, kitchen, dining area with table seating for 10, open living room, large family room surrounded by windows with a HD wide screen TV and amazing views of the lake.

The house is located on a quiet dead-end street and is 14 minutes to Gunstock Mtn. for zip-lining and other activities in the summer, and cross-country, tubing and skiing in the winter. Hiking at Mt. Major is 20 minutes away, outlet shopping, restaurants, and other area attractions are also all just minutes away. The home is perfect for family gatherings, snowmobiling, sightseeing, fishing or just a quick weekend getaway with family and friends.

In the summer, this property is perfect for swimming, fishing, boating or use as home base for other New England adventures. In the winter, enjoy skiing, pond hockey, ice fishing and snowmobiling. We are located across the street from a major state snow mobile route, route 15, providing access to all parts of New England.

Lastly, a few things you will want to know. There is a powered boat lift attached to the dock. The lift is fitted to the specific hull design and size of our boat and it does require some instruction and experience to operate safely. For the safety of your boat and our personal property, it will unfortunately not be available for use during your stay however, there is still plenty of room to dock your boat and a few wave runners on other parts of the dock. In addition, we have installed heavy duty docking cleats, docking whips, and rope with built in "snubbers" to absorb and soften the waves created by passing boats.

We also have a very strict no pets and no smoking policy due to severe allergies that exist in our family.

Our goal is for all of our guests to have a truly memorable experience and we hope you consider our home for your vacation - spring, summer, winter or fall.

3 Night Stay minimum on all off-peak Long Holiday Weekends including Memorial Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving etc.

Preferred payment methods include bank checks and personal checks. We do accept credit cards however there is an additional 3% charge from the credit card company.

About Lisa & Don

We have enjoyed taking family vacations at Lake Winnipesaukee for years now and have been looking for a place of our own for quite some time. We were thrilled when we came across this property, in this location. We know we will enjoy it for years to come and are excited to share it with you to enjoy as well.

Lisa & Don purchased this house in 2015

Why Lisa & Don chose Laconia

My husband grew up vacationing on Lake Winnipesaukee with his family and after buying a boat on the lake a few summers ago, we knew we just had to find a home here. We chose this property because of its location and proximity to all the lake has to offer. It is close to so many area attractions, great restaurants, shopping and convenient to Rte. 93. The home is also very close to grocery shopping (Hannaford and Shaw's) just 10 minutes away.

Grocery stores and major shopping areas are all just minutes away but when you are here, you feel like you are miles away. The house offers all the modern amenities of home with air conditioning for the summer, baseboard heat and a gas fireplace for the winter. It is big enough for large groups to gather and offers plenty of space for people to find a quiet place of their own if needed. The house can accommodate large groups very well and the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house so folks can have their own space and privacy. This home is located on a quiet, residential, dead end street - perfect for a relaxing getaway with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

We love the views from our yard looking out across the lake. We love the gently sloping lawn down to the lake and are really happy with the amount of usable outdoor space. It offers plenty of sunshine for those looking to sunbathe or swim, and also a lot of shaded space provided by our covered patio and shade trees in the yard. The house was built on a double lot offering 120' of water frontage and a huge lawn for lawn games and relaxing. We enjoy watching the activity on the water during the day and love the peaceful mornings and evenings at the property. If you're an early bird, you will love watching the sun rise over Belknap Mountain (Gunstock) and onto the lake - it is truly stunning and something you just have to see.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about the issue with the cleaners, I really appreciate your feedback. Without your feedback we would not have know that the cleaners weren't doing the job we were paying them for. We have since fired that cleaning company and have hired a new company that we believe will clean to our level of expectation. We hope you had a wonderful vacation and enjoy the rest of you summer. Sincerely, Lisa and Don

Great home on the lake for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful home for a family vacation with ages ranging from 2 months to 85 years. We all had a wonderful week in this spacious 5 bedroom home. Central air was a plus as the temperature during the week stayed in the 90's. Perfect warm weather for swimming and boating, but very nice to come inside to a cool house. Thank you Lisa and Don for sharing your home with us. We are already looking forward to spending a week here next summer.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation spot. The property was more than expected. We had a total of 10 in our group and we all came together for Bike Week and everyone was impressed and had a very great time. Lisa and Don ensured we had everything we needed and provide all the instruction for the stay. Would recommend to any and all.

Perfect lakeside location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group for a long weekend and this house was perfect. Plenty of space and the grill is HUGE, great for cookouts!

The best part of this house may be the outdoor space. The yard is wonderful, tons of chairs and the waterfront is incredible.

Highly highly recommended!!!

Annual Friend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for what my friends and I were looking for! We are a group of friends that love to relax outside, play yard games, and have bonfires. This property had a wonderful backyard right on the water with enough space between homes that we didn’t bother the neighbors when playing music or yard games.

The inside of the house is well maintained. One of our favorite features was the large dining room table that sat 10 people. It was great being able to have our meals all together instead of having to go to different spots in the house for a table and chair. It also came in handy for playing card games at night and on the one day it was too chilly to relax outside.

Overall, the group had a great experience while staying at this home and we would highly recommend it to others!
