Anyone familiar with Lake Winnipesaukee knows the dock on Bear Island. This picture,  taken in 1906, shows a boat with properly attired folks coming in to spend some quality time on the island. Looks like some were packed to stay for a while! You can find the latest listings on Lake Winnipesaukee by clicking in the picture below and going to DistinctiveHomesNH….imagine that, like magic!

From Wikipedia: “Bear Island is the second largest of some 274 islands on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, United States. In the summer it is accessible only by boat because it is not connected to the mainland via a bridge. In the winter it can be reached by crossing the frozen lake, including by snowmobile. According to the Lake Winnipesaukee Historical Society, the island got its name when a few hunters along with a few members of the Pennacook tribe were sent to survey the island. However, they encountered a few bears, which they decided to hunt. Originally the island was named “Big Bear Island”, which was later shortened to “Bear Island” when the island was annexed by the town of Meredith in 1799.”
