Lake Winnipesaukee in the Lakes Region... It's Why We're Home
The RE/MAX Bayside REALTORS know Lakes Region real estate. For those of us who aren't from New Hampshire originally, the beauty of the area and the many year round activities are what brought us here, making us the perfect REALTORS to help you buy or sell your home.
With two offices located in Meredith and Laconia, New Hampshire, we are surrounded by crystal clear lakes and streams, with Lake Winnipesaukee, the State's largest lake, sitting right in our backyard. (Other towns bordering Lake Winnipesaukee include Center Harbor, Moultonborough, Tuftonboro, Wolfeboro, Alton, and Gilford) We live, work and play in the Lakes Region, so feel free to ask us about things to do, places to dine, the school systems, and the charm each individual town has to offer.
Lake Winnipesaukee is a very popular year-round destination because of its serene beauty and size. It is surrounded by three mountain ranges. The water of Lake Winnipesaukee is spring-fed, and it is the sixth largest lake in the United States that lies within the boundaries of one state. Upon visiting the lake, it is easy to see why the name "Winnipesaukee" means either "beautiful water in high place," or "smile of the Great Spirit," depending on who you ask.
The lake is about 28 miles long, with an average depth of 40 - 45 feet, and a maximum depth of over 200 feet. Water temperatures in the height of summer are usually in the high 70's, and can reach well into the 80's if we have had a few very hot days. In the winter, Lake Winnipesaukee usually freezes in late December, with the ice usually over 18 inches thick, making ice fishing a very popular winter activity. It's hard to miss the signature New England sight of the bob houses lining the lake.
Vacationers are very interested in Lake Winnipesaukee real estate because of the year-round activities the Lakes Region has to offer. Purchasing a second home in Meredith, Center Harbor, Moultonborough, Tuftonboro, Wolfeboro, Alton, Gilford, Laconia, or any other nearby towns makes the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In the winter, imagine hopping on your snowmobile to go out to dinner, and conversely, in the summer, pull into a boat dock and stroll along the waterfront in Meredith to enjoy an ice cream and the live entertainment.
There is a reason the REALTORS at RE/MAX Bayside have chosen the New Hampshire's Lakes Region as their home. The air seems cleaner, and of course the majestic sight of Lake Winnipesaukee surrounded by the mountains should never be taken for granted.
