Rattlesnake Island on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire  Sleeper Island on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire  Pistol Island in Tuftonboro on Lake Winnipesaukee

There are some 365 islands on Lake Winnipesaukee-only 252 are habitable.

No stranger to island living, my family owned a 1.3 acre island in McGregor Bay, Canada, 9 miles by boat to get to in uncharted waters from the landing and 28 miles by car to the nearest town called Little Current—which was an over statement.  I learned from when I was a skinny red-headed freckled face 11-year-old the real appeal of island living as part of a family of seven. I learned to drive a boat—even build a boat, before I learned to drive a car.  I grew up learning about nature, fishing holes, camp fires, boating rules, sail boat races, swimming — and so much more.  Island life is the good life. Enjoy.
