Governor's Island Retreat

Gilford, NH


From the first time the family of five crossed the bridge on to Governor’s Island in Lake Winnipesaukee they knew it was the perfect place to build the year-round home they longed for. Patience and perseverance paid off when they found a spectacular waterfront parcel with amazing views, a long waterfront edge and perfect solar orientation.


The six-bedroom house was made for entertaining. Design is a passion for the client – who personally selected every one of the interior finishes with comfort being a top priority. The open concept of the living, dining, and kitchen, all with views to the water, allows for large gatherings of friends and family, while more family-centric time is shared in the sunroom located adjacent to the kitchen.  With its grand fireplace, unique ceiling lines, walls of windows, and many gathering spaces, the sunroom is the heart of the home. The kitchen showcases a coffered ceiling, a multi-functional island with built-in banquette with seating for six, and an alcove office space for planning daily activities.
