About the neighborhood
Lake Winnipesaukee is one of the most beautiful, natural, glacial lakes in the world. It is scenic, clean, excellent for swimming and angling (landlocked salmon, lake trout, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, perch, etc), sailing, canoeing, motor boating, and vacationing for families. Bear Island, where my cottage is, is the largest island in the lake not connected to shore by bridge. (There are 360 islands on Lake Winnipesaukee which translates from the Abanaki Indian to 'The Smile of the Great Spirit.' Summer theater, art shows, and festivals are available to the vacationer in the Lakes Region. My cottage is 3.5 miles from the Meredith Public Docks and Parking at Brown's Boat Basin on Meredith Neck. You can launch your boat there and park your car as well.
