About Bob

My wife and I started boating on the lake in 1995 back when our son was 10. We have our own business and needed some away time to spend together. Since then this lake has become a retreat for the three of us as well as friends and family.

Our sons friends grew up with us on the boat on weekends and all learned how to waterski, and had great times tubing. The great part about this lake is that you can go to 8 different towns to shop, eat or enjoy what recreational items there may be going on that day. You can also stop the boat in any number of coves and swim, snorkel or float in the water.

Over the years we have met many friends here that we can meet up with at sandbars, or just tie up together on the water for sandwiches and drinks. We can also go dock at a town and have lunch or dinner.

Bob purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Bob chose Laconia

My wife grew up here in the Lakes Region, and we started boating up here in 1995 when our son was 10. This property belonged to my wifes Aunt and Uncle along with 17 cottages across the road and she used to clean them when she was younger. The property was sold outside of the family in 2003 by her cousins. We saw the for sale sign on the property while boating by in the fall of 2007 and the rest is history.

This property is now home to all the family gatherings once again. Birthdays, Anniversaries and holidays are spent gathered together here, Building plenty of fond memories for everyone.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the fact that this property is close to all the major stores, malls, restaurants, nightclubs, golf, tennis, skiing snowmobiling and many more.

Once on the property you have panoramic views of the lake, a level lot, easy in/out to the docks by boat. The main cottage has a large living room wich opens up into a big porch with windows all around and out each window is the lake. Step back into the room and you feel as though your on a house boat with nothing but lake.

The property is not out exposed to the heavy boat traffic on the lake but set back on the shoreline, which affords privacy and is quieter.

There is a great steakhouse within a minutes walk at the beginning of the road.

Great family atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Our heartfelt thanks to Bob & Donna for a great week. Both houses were comfortable & well equipped to handle all 3 generations. Our ages range from 65 to 5 & no one felt left out. From the games in the garage to the trampoline in the water there was plenty to keep us occupied. Family meals cooked both inside & out were enjoyed outside using all 3 picnic tables with the best view anyone could have. The firepit was a huge hit & really well done. We saw more shooting stars in just a few nights time than most people see in a lifetime. Thanks again for being great hosts - right down to the chocolates on our pillows! Hope to see you next year.

We have been coming to the Lake Winnipesaukee area for may years. We have never found a lake house that checked all our boxes! Until this year! Bob and Donna's lake house was so comfortable for our family. The view is fabulous. We loved that it had a level yard and grass to play games. The way the house faces is perfect, sun when you want it and shade when you don't! Crystal clean water and the water trampoline was an added bonus for all. Other than the kitchen being dated and the carpet in the bedrooms (carpet was clean I just don't like carpet!) the house was perfect! Very spacious living area and dining area and the most comfortable beds we ever slept on! The cottage was a bonus for my grown children and the outdoor shower was refreshing. The kids loved the ping pong table and had a great time hanging out in the evenings around the fire pit. Bob and Donna were very accommodating and we hope to get the chance to return next summer!!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation went very well, the location is perfect in Paugus on a point with 400 feet of frontage. The house is completely turnkey. Plenty of space for parking and trailer(s). Bob was great and very accommodating. The house had plenty of room and the second guest house was an added bonus. The kids loved all the games and ping pong table in the garage, that was extremely helpful. Very close to many stores and supermarkets, and within walking distance from a decent steakhouse. I would definitely recommend Bob's house to anyone, and it was very nice that I could bring my Chocolate Lab. The only thing I would recommend is maybe another air conditioner for the common area in the main house for hot/humid days. Thanks Bob!

Owner's Response: Matt, Thanks for your kind words and posting the review. We will look into a way to cool off the main area for next year. I know we have a few things in mind to do in the off season. Have a great rest of the summer and we look forward to your return visit next year. Also thanks for your help in cleaning up the property at the end of your stay. Bob & Donna Paxton
