The Terrace Hill, Gilford location is within 15 minutes to Gunstock Ski Resort.  Not only is Gunstock the largest County owned ski resort in the United States, Gunstock Mountain also has the longest zip line in the United States.  

During the winter,  night skiing with the mountain bathed in a green light and pristine snow, is a beautiful sight to behold.  Cafes open in the evening and horse drawn carriage rides all contribute to make Gunstock a picturesque and appealing winter experience. Whether you are there for day or evening skiing, snowboarding, tubing or merely viewing the mountain from across Lake Winnipesaukee, it is one of the draws of the New Hampshire Lakes Region.

The Gunstock Ski Club is a popular way for young children to learn to ski with their peers, within the view of their parents at this friendly resort with sunny southern exposure.

Gunstock resort offers a variety of slopes and skiing lessons for beginners to experts. Segway tours, cross-country ski trails, a pond for skating, fireworks on New Year’s Eve and events throughout the year are all part of the what has made Gunstock a spot where generations of skiers, vacationers, and year round residents have made some of their most indelible memories.

The Core Team of Winnipesaukee Experts from Lakes Region Realty Group is Still Here

How Can Buyers Find a Real Estate Agent in the Deluge of Agents on the Internet?


I've had potential buyers, who are new to the Lakes Region tell me that it is hard to know how to pick an agent because "there a zillion real estate agents to chose from."  Unfortunately, any agent can chose to call  him or herself a Winnipesaukee waterfront expert, or a specialist in new construction, luxury homes, or any other sort of home for that matter.  Given this reality of the internet age,  it is difficult to sort through pages of information posted on the internet to find the agent that best suits you.

Are looking for the Winnipesaukee insiders?

Are you looking for real estate agents who have been selling primarily Winnipesaukee homes for a decade or more?

Even at our own firm, since the merger, people looking to find the Lakes Region Realty Group agents with whom they worked, now need to look for us under our new sign at the Berkshire Hathaway Verani Realty Moultonborough Office.
Conveniently, we remain in our 2 Lakes Region locations, including the main office, 60 Whittier Highway (Route 25), Moultonborough, NH Unit #3.  If it is more convenient to make an appointment in Meredith, NH, call to make an appointment at  our 290 Daniel Webster Highway, Meredith office.  For your convenience whether traveling by car or boat, we are directly across from the Meredith Town Docks.

We Can Discuss with you Your Lake Region Real Estate Needs & Match you with a Real Estate Specialist.


Our core team of agents, who have been experts and the ultimate insiders for Winnipesaukee waterfront real estate for decades continue to grow as a team.  Our ability to communicate with each other and share valuable information that benefits our clients and customers is invaluable.
Even during our "down time" we are discussing real estate.  We discuss what the ideal property would be for our buyer customers and clients.  Often these "relaxed" conversations lead to insights and pathways that lead our customers to homes that they love.  These conversations help to sell our seller clients' homes.
Without the sort of entrainment*, real estate knowledge, ability to listen to one another, compassion, and hard-earned mutual respect, we would just be a group of individuals who call ourselves real estate agents. We have been selling many properties this year in Alton, Wolfeboro, Gilford, Meredith NH and other towns as well as in the town of Moultonborough.  Finding you the home or Lakes Region property that best suits you is our mission.
Our team can advise you, whether you are looking for camps and lakefront cottages, or luxury homes for sale.  If you seek view properties or residential homes for sale in the Lakes Region its environs, we can help you by matching you with an individual or team well suited to your real estate needs.
If you want to work with an agent who has sold extensively  in a particular community such as Windward Harbor or Suissevale, we are happy to provide you with his or her extensive real estate resumes upon request.

Sale and Merger offers Network for Referrals.

At our firm, since the sale and merger, there are hundreds of agents who are part of our new firm, extending through Andover Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Lakes Region.
We have the benefit of that new extensive referral network.  but our agents who have been selling primarily Winnipesaukee homes for decades are still here at our Moultonborough NH office.
Our broker/sales manager and former sales manager are also both still here. They have provided a wealth of information to our office for decades.  Their combined knowledge and experience with developing subdivisions and building Winnipesaukee waterfront luxury homes as well as decades of transacting real estate is a resource we are able to connect with throughout the day in our office.  They and our agents have also compiled a library of language  for use in complex transactions. Our network of experts who can help you with surveys, engineering, home inspections, and other due diligence, work well together after years of experience working on Winnipesaukee waterfront transactions.
Call to ask questions about market activity in the niche of the market that interests you.  We're always happy to help.
New branding.  Same Core Team. Look for our sign at 60 Whittier Highway Moultonborough, NH.  Please call Nicole to make an appointment.
You're invited to view our firm's listings.
(*entrainment: as in to connect with each other in a heightened way that improves performance and function).

View from "Little Harbor" 15 Olive Street Alton Bay, NH

Sited to capture a view of Rattlesnake Island the Ossipee Mountains, Little Harbor sees the pink-hued shades cast by the setting sun.  During the day, Rattlesnake Island reflects its image on a still lake.  Lake Winnipesaukee curves around Rattlesnake Island.  You are reminded that Winnipesaukee has 288 miles of shoreline and is approximately 21 miles long.

Winter Moon over Lake Winnipesaukee

Winter Moon over Rattlesnake Island

Watch the moon rise above Rattlesnake Island in the summer. Enjoy a fire on a winter evening with the breadth of Winnipesaukee before you. 

Stretch your vision beyond Diamond Island and across "the Broads" to the North.   Turn to look across the length of Rattlesnake towards Wolfeboro to the East.  The summer sun lights somewhere at Little Harbor until very late afternoon in the summer, but shade is always available amidst the landscaped perennials, walkways, and towering pines.  The moon on a winter evening can be watched while warming by one of your five fireplaces.
