During summer and weekends a good number of American families head down to this resort to cool off. Nature lovers will be delighted at the abundance of greenery available in Center Harbor. Ever since its inception in 1797, this locale has been a favoured summer retreat for locals and a venue for the intercollegiate regatta between the Ivy League institutions of Harvard and Yale. Lakefront accommodation is available in the form of cabins hidden in clusters of woodland.

It is said that the stones, which are visibly shaped into pentagons, were carved at a rate of three a day. Surrounding the structure are 6,300 acres of lush estate that stretch all the way to the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. During the tram ride through this estate visitors will be engulfed by vast tracts of green meadows and pasture land.

Beautiful Private Setting and Lake water !

4 of 5
House/ Lodge had tremendous character. Great kitchen that accomodated 10 for a meal. Excellently supplied kitchen for meal prep. Main room had big stone fire place that made it cozy on rainy days.Awesome game and puzzle supply. Dock location allows for sun time, otherwise mostly shaded. Water is spectacular !
