About Barbara Aichinger

We are a family of 5 who have enjoyed the lakes region for over 10 years. We are fortunate enough to own two beautiful homes on Governor's Island and would like to share one of them with you.

Barbara Aichinger purchased this estate in 2010

Why Barbara Aichinger chose Lake Winnipesaukee Area

When Governor's Island was first developed back in the 1920's this property was Lot 9 one of the first ten properties chosen due to its superior location and its breathtaking views. In 2010 this property became the catalyst for the repeal and state wide banning of a zoning ordinance called Involuntary Lot Merging. As such the property has been named LIBERTY HOUSE.

What makes this estate unique

This house was the second house we built on Governor's Island and as engineers we made sure we did everything right the second time! The open floor plan, amazing views and inviting waterfront make this home unforgettable. Everything in this house is brand new. In the wintertime the snow covered lake and clear views are almost startling and the summer time is just paradise.

Come see for yourself!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for a great weekend! All in all, your home and the views are amazing!

Memorable Holiday Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property with a very well designed house in a spectacular setting overlooking Lake W. While the property is on sale, it's well furnished and supplied with plenty of kitchen ware, perhaps the only wants are a tea kettle and a new coffee maker. Bedding and linens were nice but mattresses will not compare to luxury hotels/condos (in general not available in this area if it's important to you). There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy. It's very close to Gunstock but snow was lacking. However, it's well situated to drive further up North to find snow, which is what the skiers did. Funspot is close by to relive your antique video arcade experience along with bowling and pool. Shopping centers and a movie theater are nearby. Restaurant reservations are a must in the more popular establishments, even in a week where Gunstock was barely operating. Driveway is a bear with snow and ice during a snow storm (just in time to provide beautiful scenery), even with the most meticulous and friendliest plowing service coming to clean up afterwards. Owner is very responsive and easy to work with. Rent is very expensive but the finest things usually are. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for spectacular accommodations for a large gathering in a secluded private location. Summertime would even be more amazing if that's possible. I may just have to make a firsthand comparison.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is in perfect shape with plenty of space and an amazing deck out the back. The views are incredible and it was in a perfect location for boating, fishing, and swimming. The community beach is only a short distance away and offered a sandy beach, playground, and tennis courts.

Made some great memories with the family.

Only downside was not staying for a full week, which I hope to correct next year.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a special stay. The views from the Liberty House are only more magnificent from the deck, or from the dock. Serene setting, and brilliant layout for this newly built property. Most highly recommended.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a fabulous weekend in this beautiful home with the most amazing lake and mountain views. It was very relaxing to sit on the large deck overlooking the water and take in all of the natural beauty surrounding you. The location was perfect, a peaceful island offering scenic walks and community amenities that is close to great restaurants and wonderful gift shops. A little piece of heaven. The listing accurately reflects the properties appearance and many amenities. The house is beautifully decorated and all of the necessities are provided. The spacious home offered bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone providing comfort and privacy for all of us. The kayaks provided peaceful floats on the lake which everyone enjoyed and we all loved sitting around the fireplace for a nightly fire while toasting smores and playing campfire games. The owner is very professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this property. We had a wonderful stay.

Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends enjoyed Labor Day weekend on the lake at Liberty House. The view as we entered the front door and looked out the family room windows to the lake was terrific. My son and I are early risers and we were able to watch the sun rise over the lake that first morning. The house itself was clean and very comfortable, usually we go out for all our meals but we didn't want to leave, needless to say we did a lot of eating in. I want to thank the owners for sharing this home. I saw a saying that went "If you are lucky enough to live in a lake house you are lucky enough". Well I feel lucky to have stayed in this house, It was a great weekend.
