Lake Winnipasaukee, New Hampshire

After the weekend in Boston we drove up to Lake Winnipasaukee, New Hampshire for a few days, staying at a delightful bed and breakfast.  Our oldest Alyson frequents Lake Winnipasaukee so that is how we first heard about it so were excited to get a look for ourselves.  We only had a couple days and ended up with a bit of rain so we did the sights and will have to go back for some water time.  The water is amazingly clear for a lake and being that far north although we had had a week of 100° temps the water was still refreshing.  We found the Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast run by Mike & Pat, who do a great job making you feel welcome, feeding you, and keeping a cozy place.

Our guest room for the stay.

We had a great lunch overlooking the lake at one of The Common Man Restaurants "Town Docks".  Good Chowder, a Cesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp and a Blue Moon to drink-----that screams vacation.

We had rain on and off for most of our time at the Lake so spent our time seeing the area. Enjoyed "Castle in the Clouds" which had trails, waterfalls, restaurant and the beautiful home that sits at the top of the mountain with an amazing view of the lake.

This must be an amazing view on a clear day.

The home had wonderful details, I especially enjoyed the painted glass
in the windows each with a different image.

What a great spot Austin and the Zimmerman's had on the lake!
This had to be a great spot on those cool evenings the rest
of the week.
