Lake Winnisquam Lakefront Real Estate Information Guide NH

Winnisquam is one of the most desirable lakes in New Hampshire. The lake is 4200 acres, 10.5 miles long with three islands and a sandbar that the population explodes on every warm summer day.  The towns around the lake are Belmont, Meredith, Laconia, Sanbornton, and Tilton. I live in Sanbornton and we do not even have a traffic light in town but the population explodes in the summer from 2500 to 10,000 +. 

The lake is only a few miles from Interstate 93 via Exit 20 on the southern end and Exit 23 on the northern end of the lake.  Winnisquam has two basins, a larger northern basin and a smaller southern one, with a bridge carrying Routes 3 and 11 separating them. The village of Winnisquam is located at the bridge where you will find a local store with a dock and marina for gas and boat supplies.  South of the bridge is also a great location for water skiing or wakeboarding. As you travel north of the lake the widest section is 1.5 miles and the northern tip of the lake is referred to as the loon sanctuary a peaceful place for an afternoon lunch or cruise. ( no wake zone ) 

Laconia offers 2 shared beach communities, Lakewood, Wildwood and Ahern State Park. In Meredith you will find Waldron Bay Community. The shoreline is sandy, rocky to gravel and the maximum depth is 176 feet. 

The lake offers 4 seasons of activities. Summer boating, sailing, water sports and Winnisquam Lake is home to many species of fish. Cold water species include rainbow trout, lake trout, and landlocked salmon. You will find golf courses around the lake, plus rainy day attractions at the Weirs.  Winter snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing and Gunstock Ski Area is 20 minutes from the southern portion of the lake, Loon, Waterville, Cannon and Ragged are 40 minutes from the northern section of the lake.  

The area offers an abundance of shopping opportunities, 3 major grocery stores, 45 outlet stores, 2 large lumber chain stores along with a variety of restaurants. 

Lakefront homes around the lake are priced from the mid $500,000 range to $1.5 million. With the lake being just a few minutes off 93 commuters from Boston find the lake to be the perfect distance from home to dream lake house.
