Please ask yourself: "Should I stay at a small, older type, cottage located on a postage stamp size lot or should I choose to stay at a beautiful, 2003 custom built, luxury, 8 room, well appointed year round home on a .62 acre waterfront lot with 2 large docks. If your answer is yes to the latter, then we suggest that you reserve your stay as soon as possible. Our Home is located on Lake Winnipesaukee. Linen is provided when requested.
Swimming, boating, tubing, water skiing, wake boarding, scuba diving, sailing and fishing are just a few of the activities available in the Lakes Region.
Swimming from our dock or wading in is possible. (See swim raft photo). Some of the many other activities are table air hockey, DVD, Wii, Wi-Fi, board games and videos. Children enjoy catching fish from the dock, paddling our two kayaks and floating on our swim tubes. Alton Bay has craft fairs.
Hiking up Mount Major and taking family pictures with the lake in the background is very popular. The cruise ship M/S Mount Washington leaves from Alton Bay on Sunday and Thursday (Brunch optional). Eating at restaurants where you can enjoy your favorite foods locally is possible. The kitchen is well equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, glasses and containers. One full bathroom is conveniently located between the master suite and the second bedroom and these are separated for additional privacy from the main living area by a pocket door. Another full bathroom with a walk in shower is centrally available off of the kitchen. The third full bathroom is located on the lower level. There is a slider off of the dining area leading to an open deck overlooking the lake. The main level kitchen features views, granite counter tops and birch cabinets. The large center island food preparation/breakfast bar adds seating capacity. Your family will appreciate dining while seated at a beautiful oak dining table when they experience the added pleasure of a western exposure, a panoramic waterfront view of the southern end of Alton Bay, the eastern slope of Alton Mountain and gorgeous sunsets.
The front-to-back living room with its field stone fireplace and wall to wall waterfront windows is a great place for the family to get together and share the moment. The patio overlooking the lakefront is a great place to lounge and see what is happening on the water. The granite counter tops, high ceilings and Andersen windows attest to the homes highest standards. The tile flooring creates a dramatic look in the entrance foyer that opens to an expansive hardwood floored living room. Relax near the stone fireplace while viewing the watercraft activity through large waterfront windows.
