Although this property is the perfect getaway for those who do NOT live on the lake, it is also a great idea for those who are NEAR! My family actually lives on the mainland of Lake Winnipesaukee. We decided a "stay-cation" was in the cards for us this year. We wanted a completely DIFFERENT experience, without having to drive or fly far away. We learned that there are VERY few private islands on the lake for rent. In fact this is the only one we found that met all of our needs:
Nature, beautiful authentic lake house, private bunk house for the kids, 360 degree views, boat dock, kayaks, fire pit, and also important to us, was not having to worry about our dogs running free. The surrounding water is crystal clear, and we all enjoyed floating, laughing, family time, friends coming to visit, and the feeling of "escape" from daily life. I highly recommend this island retreat - we also found the owners very pleasant to work with. They kindly got us oriented when we arrived. WE WILL be back!
