In the spring and summer months, you will enjoy our gazebo overlooking the lake and every water sport imaginable. Bring your boat or rent one from a neighboring marina. Check with us before your arrival about possible availability of space for docking. The mountains surrounding the lake that provide such wonderful views during the summer months, become great ski areas during the winter.

You'll also find a variety of waterfront restaurants along the boardwalk in Meredith just a short drive away.

Fishing is also very popular. Licenses are required and available at most of the local stores. Nearby Gunstock Mountain Resort features zip lines, scenic lift ride and Segway Tours for summer visitors.
The spectacle of nature's own brilliant show of colors will be easily enjoyed on the property or at nearby hiking areas which are free of charge.
The winter months bring the opportunity for ice fishing and skiing, both downhill and cross country are available at Gunstock Ski Area right here in Gilford. We'll be glad to provide snowmobilers with all the information needed to arrange for your snowmobile rental, but don't forget, only the machines are available for rent.
