Those looking for a peaceful lakeside retreat will be hard pressed to find a better location than Center Harbor, a small town (just over 40 square kilometres) sitting snugly in between two lakes; Lake Winnipesaukee and Squam Lake. 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.

While in New Hampshire a visit to the Castle in the Clouds is highly recommended. The building is outstanding in its own right, showcasing the intricate handiwork of Italian stone masons. 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.
