Diamond Island Cottage
Gilford Lake Winnipesaukee Area

Arrive and dock with ease, behind the protected breakwater, and with one look, you know you are at the heart of the Lake. The greatest views in all direction with plenty of sun, and plenty of shade to satisfy everyone. Water sports right at your doorstep, and a quick paddle around the island is 30 minutes well spent! The cottage is neat, clean, and always with a comfortable breeze. At night, the warm glow of candles, and the sight of the passing Mount Washington, mark the end of another great day on Diamond Island! Easily boat to nearby restaurants located only minutes away in Wolfeboro, Gilford, and Alton Bay. As Arnold would say - "We'll be back!"

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review! It is our goal to keep our "diamond in the rough" rustic and unplugged to bring you back to a simpler way of "being"...that being said we have still made some nice upgrades that we hope you will appreciate...led lighting in the cabin, the indoor shower in the bunkhouse has been repaired and is great for privacy and a warmer spot to shower on blustery, cold days...Other small changes in decor have been made to keep the cabin updated, comfortable, quaint and cozy!

Stepping Back In Time

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for the best views on Lake Winnipesaukee, this is the place for you! From the beautiful breakwater or from the nearly floor to ceiling windows stretching across the entire front of the cottage, you feel as though you are "in" the crystal clear Winnipesaukee water. As soon as we walked into the crisp clean cottage we felt as though we were home. Evening meals were so much fun on the great harvest table after a day of swimming, fishing, boating and kayaking. Diamond Island has no electricity so you provide your own entertainment. If you are hooked on TV and can't live without a freezer, this isn't the place for you. But if you want to disconnect from the news and reconnect with those you love or if you haven't played cards by candlelight, you will find your paradise on Diamond Island.

Diamond Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I believe this is our 4th year renting this property. The cottage is located on the island so that you can see the sunrise and sunset. Its kinda like going back in time, no T.V. or phone - very peaceful. Its a great spot to spend with family. Anyone that has joined us these past four years has really enjoyed and always want to come back. The place is always clean. Wolfboro is only 15 minutes by boat where there is an IGA supermarket. AMES farm is only about 5 minutes, great breakfast and lunch. The owners are great and very responsive. We enjoy fishing, swimming and boating. If your looking for a place where you can unwind with no distracions I would strongly recommend this cottage. Just not on our week!
