The water in this oligotrophic lake is crystal clear with a rocky to sandy shoreline. This lake is a hidden gem, homes seldom come on the market and if they do they sell quickly. To access the lake you have a steep ascent from Alton Bay with spectacular views of Winnipesaukee on the way to the lake.  

With no public access, you will not find the lake crowded with boaters and the shoreline is dotted with cottages and a few year-round homes. The scouts have a summer camp in the Gilmanton end of the lake. 

Groceries and restaurants are just a short drive into Alton. The most popular hiking trail in NH is Mount Major is 15 minutes away and Gunstock and Wolfeboro are just a 30-minute drive. You will find all the attractions Winnispeaukee has to offer at your doorstep.
