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.

Another mountain within minutes of 46 Terrace Hill Gilford with stunning views of Lake Winnipesaukee,  Mount Major offers hiking trails that are particularly popular in summer months.

The club offers many different services including indoor tennis, personal training, dance classes, and a kids’ club with full staff to watch and entertain children while members are working out or playing tennis.

For golfers, the Laconia Country Club is one of the most popular clubs in the Lakes Region.  It is only private country club on the west of Lake Winnipesaukee and is a favorite of celebrities and golfers.  Conveniently located near Meredith, Gilford, and Laconia, it is a popular spot to host celebrations. Weddings, and company and charity parties are often held here.

There are great local restaurants including The Lyons Den, located at 25 Dock Road, Gilford, New Hampshire. This cozy restaurant serves traditional Americana cuisine and is located on Lake Winnipesaukee, providing beautiful views for patrons. For a rustic restaurant complete with fireplace, wood construction, and friendly staff, try Ellacoya Bar and Grill, located at 2667 Lake Shore Rd, Gilford, New Hampshire.  The Lake Opechee Inn has rooms that are pet-friendly for visitors and O’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant at the Lake Opechee Inn offers lake views of Opechee, including sunsets.  The dining fare at “O’s”  is some of the best in the Lakes Region.

In Gilford New Hampshire, the location for 46 Terrace Hill Road, you will find opportunity and space  for relaxation, a vibrant community, and social clubs.  The lakes and mountains and the location near the highway for easy access to Boston, are reasons why Gilford is one of the most popular towns on lake Winnipesaukee.

Rocco's Pick of the Week: Tuftonboro NH Open House on Labour Day

Rocco and his Best Friend Make 58 Eaglemere Road, a Winnipesaukee Waterfront Home in Tuftonboro,

Their Winnipesaukee Pick of the Week!

Visit Labour Day Weekend Open Houses

September 3rd and September 4th 10 AM - 12 PM

at 58 Eaglemere Road, Tuftonboro, NH.

Gunnison's prairie dogs of the U.S. and Mexico are said to have their own sophisticated language including adjectives, nouns, verbs, and all the nuances of lanugage. This is according to Dr. Slobodchikoff's videotaped studies as written in Temple Grandin's book, "Animals in Translation". It is surmised that the prairie dogs' language grew as a survival mechanism from many years of being prey.

Winnipesaukee dogs are considerably more coddled.  My dog, Rocco gets the cutest toys from WinniPaws boutique pet store in Wolfeboro, and need not worry about procuring his next meal, much less being someone's next meal.  The concept of being prey is foreign to him.  The concept of a boat ride to a beautiful property is his pinnacle of excitement.

Boating by by beautiful 58 Eaglemere Road is especially picturesque at sunset and, as pictured below, at Twilight, coincidentally referred to as the hour between wolf and dog.

Rocoo boating by 58 Eagelmere, is inspired by its beauty.

While Rocco is clearly at his most philosophical and erudite self while boating by Winnipesaukee's 58 Eaglemere Road, we can not guarantee that all human beings will have such exceptional intuition and perception. If they are similarly inspired to be their best at this exceptional Winnipesaukee home, Rocco and I will attribute that to great taste!
