Lake Winnipesaukee Cabins in Tilton New Hampshire

Named by Native Americans, Lake Winnipesaukee has a couple of meanings-“smile of the great spirit” or “beautiful water in a high place.” New Hampshire’s largest lake, which is glacier formed and spring fed, is surrounded by three mountain ranges. It is approximately 25 miles long and 15 miles wide, covering 72 square miles. Winnipesaukee has 283 miles of shoreline and contains more than 240 islands. The inspiring wooded shoreline and crystal clear water make this lake a popular summertime retreat-and a treat for all who visit. In addition, there are many communities dotting the lake. Below are the eight largest.
