I have completed only one day of a three day visit and recall reading reviews before we came here looking for an overview/introduction. First, I would decide on where you will stay around the lake (we picked Holderness on Lake Squam) which really is like a section of the overall Winni Lake Area. We drove from Maine to NH and... More

Best time to go to Lake Winnipesaukee. NH around this time. Took the boat tour around the lake. If you have time do the lake tour, It's a 2 hours tour and one can buy brunch or dinner on the cruise tour. The meals are just buffet style, nothing extra ordinary. I say go to other restaurant along the beach... More

Found it one of the cleanest and pristine lake shores. When I went there with friends, I found it totally peaceful with only few people around. I was amazed by the crystal clear fresh water, making short waves on the beach. It was wonderful to step in a freshwater beach. We could not do boating because we did not had... More

This is a beautiful, picturesque lake with some great towns and antique shopping. My favorite town, Wolfeborough. Swimming, boating, relaxing, clear water, fishing - you have it all.

never heard of this lake before, but while visiting cousins, we rented a power boat and it was the best part of our trip! Scenic, clean...just beautiful! Wish I remembered where we rented the boat, but it was affordable and fun! can't wait to return!!

This is an exceptionally beautiful lake definitely worth visiting. Stay at either Wolfeborough - historical, upmarket, pretty town at one end or Weirs Beach at the other, more touristy and with the largest beach. We went on the Winnipesauke Belle for a tour around part of the lake, viewing the areas where the movie "On Golden Pond" was shot, houses... More

The lake is beautiful and clear. So nice to see the bottom of the lake even when it's fairly deep. Chilly though! We stayed at Church Landing at Mill Falls in Meredith which was terrifc. We took the scenic 2 hour boat ride on the Doris which is a sister to the large Mt. Washington boat trip. Very nice tour... More

You can bike around the 65 mile lake, or boat from town to town. The lake is excellent for swimming in July, so warm and clear! Very relaxing area.
