About Dave Rice

I started coming to Lake Winnipesaukee as a kid during family vacations, and have a deep connection to the area. I am a custom home builder and remodeler, who truly loves seeing people have a great experience in the spaces I build.

Dave Rice purchased this house in 2012

Why Dave Rice chose Gilford

This property is really an ideal location being just 4 minutes away from Lake Winnipesauke and only 2 minutes away from Gunstock Mountain. When I first saw it in 2012, I knew I wanted to live here. So I purchased the property and did a complete tear down of the previous home. After having built nine other vacation homes, I decided to build this home for myself. I focused on luxurious amenities and all the creature comforts I’d dreamed of. The property offered nice views but I knew it could offer more, so I had a local landscape professional come in and remove some trees to create the breathtaking views that are now offered from every room of the house. After finishing construction and furnishing the home, I realized that I wanted to share the luxurious retreat I had created. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to offer this rental to people from all over the world.

What makes this house unique

With beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee from every room to the abundant living space both indoors and out, guests will experience a relaxing, enjoyable vacation from check in to check out. With easy access to both the mountain and the lake, outdoor activity options are endless.

The house is equipped with an Xbox 360; board games; and an air hockey table; a Sonos music system throughout the indoor and outdoor living space; a deck with abundant seating, fire pit, and gas grill.

It’s a great place to relax with a special someone or a large group. This mountain home is truly a luxury experience in so many ways and during all four seasons.

Unpleasant by outbursts!

  • 2 of 5

Our stay was diminished by the vulgar outbursts by the owner-cum-manager of the house, Mr Dave Rice over finding enough towels for our guests. On the evening of 24 December, 2017, we asked Mr Rice over the phone where to find more towels. He replied with an explosion of profanities instead of help, thereby rendering our stay unpleasant for all.

Owner's Response: NIGHTMARE GUESTS!!! I have never lost my composure with any guest in all my three years of renting to hundreds of people!! They must not have read the description about the house, they called at least 17 times with stupid questions, like does the house have hot water and concerns that were so outrageous like do I supply food. They called me on Christmas Eve at 9:30 pm in a panic about needing 3 towels that they couldn't find, but did find while on the phone with me. He was RUDE, DEMANDING and DISCOURTEOUS to me especially when I was trying to enjoy family time on Christmas Eve. They were very self serving to all my staff. The staff has asked to not allow them to ever return. I have enjoyed all my guests from each of my multiple properties and I look forward to my future guests. This unfortunate incident will not deter my passion going forward. My rental history speaks for itself.
