Memorial Day weekend is the start of the summer season here in the lakes region, everyone makes the trip up to their summer lakefront home to enjoy the first long weekend of boating. Spoiling the outdoor activities on the lake we had rain, snow and wind until today, Monday Memorial Day  we  have blue skies and sunshine back. With anticipation of an influx of visitors to the area we had a jump in the number of new waterfront listings to 45. Lake Winnipesaukee Real Estate again lead the charge with 13 new listings ranging from 2 cottages in the $300,000 range both across the street from the lake  and the rest priced between $800,000 and $2.5 million.  Lake Sunapee had 2 new listings one being a spectacular 5 bedroom home with a level 2.2 acre lot and sandy beach and open water sunsets views of the mountains. You can't ask for a better setting, priced at $3.5 mil.  My pick of the week for a lakefront home is a log home on 715 acre Lake Nubanusit in Hancock NH. For those fishing enthusiast this lake is paradise. This 3 bedroom home is situated privately on 1 acre of land and is priced at $895,000.
