Merrymeeting Lake NH Real Estate

Merrymeeting Lake is a 1,233-acre water body located in Strafford County in eastern New Hampshire, United States, in the town of New Durham. Its outlet is the Merrymeeting River, flowing south and then northwest to Lake Winnipesaukee. The shores of Merrymeeting Lake are moderate to heavily developed. The lake has a busy recreational character rather than a wilderness character. Only a few small segments of shoreline remain undeveloped. The undeveloped areas are on the western side of Sawtooth Cove, because the land is extremely steep there and difficult to build on, and the far eastern shore of the lake is not easily accessible by road.

Look through a variety of listings to find your new property. For more information or to schedule a showing, please feel free to contact us. You can also register with the site to save your favorite listings and to get email updates when new properties match your criteria.

In the 1980s most buildings along the lake were simple summer camps. During the 1990s most of these structures were replaced by higher-end summer homes, some worth millions of dollars. The town of New Durham maintains two paved roads, North Shore Road and South Shore Road, which almost encircle the lake, allowing for year-round residence. However, the winter population is small. Most properties on the lake are second homes for affluent families.

Merrymeeting Lake has loons that nest on the western shore. Ducks also live on the lake, although feeding them is discouraged by the Merrymeeting Lake Association. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department stocks the lake for recreational fishing.

There is a dam at the west end of the lake, which is used to control the lake's water level. Each year in the fall the water level in the lake is lowered via the dam. The water level is restored to its normal level in the Spring by snowmelt and rainfall. The Powder Mill Fish Hatchery is located at the base of the dam and is fed by the overflow of the lake's water.
