Why Buy a Home on Lake Winnipesaukee?
I think the best thing about the Big Lake if you are a boater is that you can literally go someplace different every time you go out on the lake. There is much to explore, countless places to anchor for lunch and a swim, great fishing, and beautiful sunset cruises. If you can’t afford the boat (or the gas these days), hop on board the M/S Mt. Washington and take a tour in grand style and see all that the lake has to offer. It is a little like going back in time…
Lake Winnipesaukee Island Homes

The Governor doesn’t live there, but some of the most expensive residences on the lake can be found there. These estates are great to view on a slow sunset boat ride around the island!
