Celebrated our Mom's 90th birthday. We had a great week. The homes were clean, had beautiful views of the lake. The new Redwood was beautifully built and allowed us to have family meals for 18 of us without being cramped.

My wife and I go boating on Newfound a few times each summer. As stated by others, it is exceptionally clean. It is a large lake and very deep but it doesn’t receive the traffic that Lake Winnipesaukee does. We put in at Wellington Beach State Park and for boaters, entry is free.

Newfound lake is gorgeous, surrounded by mountain views. The lake is spring fed and the water is crystal clear yet cool and refreshing. We kayaked into the sunset, it was awesome! Wellington State Park is beautiful with a generous beach area and a place to launch your boat!
