We have been coming to Lake Winnipesaukee every summer since 2004. If you love boating, it is a fabulous place to spend a week or two with the family. Whether you trailer your boat or rent (there are plenty of marinas on the lake- I recommend Goodhue & Hawkins in Wolfeboro) the lake is breathtaking with plenty to see and... More

We went to a place called Oliver Lodge for Memorial weekend. It is multiple houses grouped together, however, you choose and rent just one of them to stay there. The lake was beautiful, however was cold but the kids didn't care. It's one of the largest lakes in the area and is crystal clear to the bottom, so hard to... More

Staying at a rental on the shores of this lake was ethereal, with the sounds of water lapping on the shore and overnight hearing the loons calling. Boating was equivalent to exploring, with all the coves and vistas. Found a couple of perfect coves to drop anchor and jump in for a swim. Spent a lovely afternoon boating over to... More

I traveled to New Hampshire from Virginia for a wedding. We stayed at an upscale camp near this lake. The water was perfect for swimming - clear, cool, and refreshing.

I visited Lake Winnepesaukee for a wedding and could not have been more impressed with the beauty and size of the lake. The mountains surrounding the outskirts of the lake made for incredible scenery while boating or even just walking along the side of the lake. Wolfeboro and their affinity for supporting local businesses also adds to the charm of... More

Always look forward to our visits. Places like Squam Lake make it laid-back and Wiers Beach is local if u don't want to stray far and tired from other activities.

We loved the crystal blue waters of Lake Winnipesaukee. So many islands and coves along the shore to explore by boat. Beautiful mountain views encompass this gorgeous lake. With so much to see, time seems to slip away. We loved our trip to the quaint, beautiful town of Meredith. If you don't have friends or family near Lake Winni, rent... More

This is a spectacular lake that is a 'must see' if you're in NH-a huge lake with several towns bordering it, with each town a bit different than the next. Eating in any restaurant with this view will make your meal extra special.
