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.

Upscale stay

The entire experience was fabulous. The house was equipped with every amenity you could think of and more. The master suite on the second floor was spacious and luxurious. I recommend this home away from home to anyone who appreciates the fine details of elegance.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our bridal party for our wedding at Gunstock. It was absolutely INCREDIBLE! Everything was spotless and brand new, the views were amazing (Especially watching the sunrise over the lake from bed!), and the house was incredibly well stocked! It had everything we could need right down to extra folding chairs in the closet and a kitchen aid mixer! Also, the whole house is wired with surround sound which was really fun! The house was huge, with 4 very large modern bathrooms- we never felt like we were on top of each other. Couldn't recommend this house more- we will definitely be back!

Million Dollar Views and Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful house. There is a million dollar view from every room which is amazing when you're going with several couples. No one has to "settle" for a less desirable room. Everything was very clean and the house is really beautifully done. When you drive up, the house is deceptive. It just looks like an ordinary house on a hill, but open the door and you are greeted by breathtaking views of the lake as well as a gorgeous open concept kitchen and living room. We loved the basement for playing music after our daughter went to sleep and we had a great camp fire in the wood fire pit outside. We did have a little trouble with the gas fireplace on the deck and ended up not using it during our trip but the owner did call me to walk is through using it and I accidentally missed his voicemail so I'm sure he would have helped us get it up and running if I had gotten the message in time. We loved our stay here and are already anticipating spending a week at the house next summer as soon as we can all line up our dates.

This is a beautiful house with plenty of space for sleeping and hanging out. The view from the back of the house is spectacular. We did not get the wifi to work or the fire pit. Everything else was great we and would love to get back there again!
