The Pinnacle of Lakeside Living: Welcome to Laconia's Luxurious Meredith Bay

By Paul Rowe

The simple pleasures of an ice cream cone on a warm summer's day are undeniable. The scent of crisp air along the banks of Lake Winnipesaukee is a treasure cherished by vacationers in Meredith Bay, a four-season community designed to unite family and friends together around a common vision: getting away from it all.

Poised on a hill overlooking the serenity of New Hampshire's greatest lake, Meredith Bay's natural and outdoor lifestyle is the perfect antidote for families seeking escape from an urban atmosphere, but with all the amenities of a four-star resort.

"Meredith Bay is home to two tennis courts with U.S. Open-regulation playing surfaces, a pool and pavilion, and a lakefront picnic area with kayak launch and swim platform," says Media and Public Relations Director Cindy Lawrence.

"Meredith Bay residents are entitled to free membership at a nearby beach club, which offers boat slips that residents can rent on an annual basis." Owning a home at Meredith Bay means becoming the beneficiary of a fantastic privileges program. Residents of the community enjoy membership privileges at other Southworth Communities in The Bahamas, Scotland, Cape Cod, Northern Virginia and Haverhill, Mass.

Meredith Bay is a short trip away from many attractions that define the New Hampshire Lakes region, including the Weirs Beach's boardwalk, cruises on the M/S Mount Washington, the Funspot arcade and family fun center, and the Weirs Drive-In theater.

Lake Winnipesaukee provides many boating and fishing opportunities, along with antique stores offering unpredictable odds and ends and waterfront restaurants with fine dining a short walk away from the beach. Meredith Bay thrives off its old-time traditions but has so much that's new to offer. Where else can kids enjoy penny candy after taking a spin on the bumper cars? While the kiddos are occupied, parents delight in the many low-key taverns in the area.

"The options to become a resident at Meredith Bay, whether as a primary home owner or a vacation home owner, include luxury, single-floor condominium units with lake-view decks in Bluegill Lodge ranging from approximately 1400 square feet to 2000 square feet; multi-level lakefront townhomes from 1500 square feet to 2100 square feet; and home sites where buyers can create custom dream homes," says Lawrence.

"The Bungalow, a 'jewel box' Adirondack, with an open floor plan, first-floor master suite, two bed/bath second floor, stone fireplace, and two-car garage, with 1700 square feet - 2100 square feet has been very popular model in the past few years," says Lawrence.

From time to time, re-sales will hit the market. The best way to determine one's perfect home is to take a tour of Meredith Bay to explore all of its options and amenities. Qualification as a homeowner in Meredith Bay is a process no different than it is anywhere else. Before purchasing a home in Meredith Bay, it's essential to breathe in the air, take a walk on a mountain trail, or take a boat on the river. Then, there's truly no turning back.
