A glance at any New Hampshire map will show why this is called the “Lakes Region.” Ancient glaciers molded this land into the lakes, rivers, and mountains that draw people here to work, play, or to simply live in the beauty of it all.

Covering over 72 square miles, Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest and grandest of the lakes and offers a wide range of year-round recreation. Ringed by eight communities, the “Big Lake” provides spectacular scenery and year-round enjoyment.

Just east of the Big Lake is Lake Wentworth, home to one of Wolfeboro’s three public beaches, Albee Beach. The beach is a short drive out of downtown, or an easy bike ride on the “rail trail.”

To the north are the Squam Lakes, Little Squam and Big Squam, known to many as the beautiful setting for “On Golden Pond.” To the west are Lake Winnisquam, Newfound Lake, and Lake Sunapee.

Each of these lakes has its own unique character and beauty.
