Fun to be had
Jun. 2021
What a nice lake, just a good size learning curve with all the rocks and a new boat. Have hit ground, hit a rock and drifted into some rocks when we ran out of gas. I do have a map, I did buy an extra 12 gallon gas tank and I will never leave the motor in gear when we run out of gas. All on the learning curve. Last fall and this spring we have left our marina in Alton Bay and have traveled to Roberts Cove, Wolfsboro, Christmas Harbor, Center Harbor, Meredith, Weirs, Paugus Bay, Sandbar at West Marine, Mingo Cove. We love being out there, mostly just my wife, our dog and me. So glad we bought a boat last year to enjoy this beautiful area.

Beautiful lake and beautiful scenery
May 2021
We visited Lake Winnipesaukee in the beg of May, before everything opened for tourist season. We drove around the lake and visited the Castle in the Clouds area and also the White Mountains area. We stopped to see a number of covered bridges and went on a couple of hikes. The area is quite beautiful and I imagine in the summer with the boat/canoe/etc rentals, it is even nicer.

Love the area
Nov. 2020
At this time of year most of the shops and even restaurants are closed for the season and with COVID still around check individual websites before taking the chance something you want to see or do is closed. However, it's a beautiful area and a nice area to walk around

The biggest lake of NH!
Oct. 2020 • Couples
The second time to visit Meredith. The lake is really big and last time we took the old scenic train to travel around the lake. The view is fantastic and today we just stopped at the park right in the middle of the town. The weather was nice and lots of people were taking a walk along the beach and there were plenty of yachts on the lake. This is an ideal season to bring one's boat to Meredith where on the lake one can view lots of colored forests and red hills around the lake. Parking was not difficult especially on Sundays, but this town was not the sort I like because it seemed too commercialized. Even during this period of pandemic there were still lots of people eating and drinking . For us, we would rather have a cup of icy beer at a small restaurant in a little country town.

4th of July by The Lake
Jul. 2019
My wife and I spent a few days by Lake Winnipesaukee over the 4th of July weekend and enjoyed it a lot. We're stayed in a cabin with Beach access. The weather was good and the boat life on the lake was very enjoyable. There is several nice spots/towns you can visit by boat and they Carter week for tourist like us.
We stayed in Centre Harbor and they had really nice fireworks on the 4th.

This was our first time at Lake Winnipesaukee and we loved it. The lake is huge and there were fun towns to visit on the lake. Our favorite town was Meredith.. And, the castle in the clouds tour was great too.
