Great scenery and clean water

A favorite of ours. Love the Ledge Water Steakhouse and Inn at Newfound Lake. Hiking at Cardigan Mountain. Visit Spectacle Pond, too!

This is truly a beautiful lake! I much prefer the mountains, but this lake will grow on anyone. The entire volume of water turs over three or four times per year making it very clean.

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.

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.

Drove all around the West shore Rd enjoying the scenery. Stopped at Sculptured Rocks in Hebron ( a rocky gorge formation with waterfalls & pools.)
