NH Lakefront Homes! Which Lake is Right for Your Family

Any thoughts on which New Hampshire lake is might work for your family?  Part 1.

With over 250 lakes in the greater lakes region choices could be endless. Let us look at a region of the state and slowly work across the state. The eastern part of the state which is accessed by Route 16 might be a logical start.

If you have a favorite lake send me a note and I will research it for you. My favorite medium size lake in this corridor is Pine River Pond in Wakefield. The lake is 570 acres located in a rural wooded area with sandy bottom and sandy beaches. The town is quaint with some great restaurants, hardware stores, and an efficient grocery store. Golf is close by along with a King Pine a family ski area. If you are interested in nightlife Wolfeboro is a short drive. Prices range $370,000 up and Wakefield has 6 other lakes in town and is one of the low tax towns in NH.

Next stop is Lake Ossipee. In my opinion, Ossipee has some of the best lake home values. The lake is 3000 acres with four interconnecting bays. If you are looking for the best views in NH don't go any further. The views of Mount Washington and Mt Chocorua are breathtaking. To top all this off the lake has a sandy bottom, sandy beaches and some of the best boating around.
Shopping is close by and a golf course almost touches the lake. Nightlife and ski areas are 35 minutes away in the North Conway a tourist mecca. Prices start in the $375,000 range and if you find a home in Freedom you will also have low property taxes.

Up the road a few miles, Silver Lake in Madison is a hidden gem. Most people drive by and never know that this 950-acre glacial lake is even there. Just a few miles off Route 16 on 41 you will find this wonderful spring fed lake with crystal clear water. The shoreline is rocky or sandy and the lake is deep with an average depth of 47 feet with a maximum depth of 167 feet. The lake is spectacular but the location is remote. If you are looking for a location to get away and spend time with the family you found it here. You can find all your essentials locally but for a night out on the town or a rainy day you will have to travel 30 minutes up the road to North Conway. Homes are priced $470,000 up.
