Situated in Carroll County, New Hampshire, the close knit community of Tuftonboro sits on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Of the lake's 274 islands, 27 are in Tuftonboro. Just one person, John Tufton Mason, owns the town, making it the only town of its kind in New Hampshire. Visitors can enjoy beautiful scenery, trails, hiking routes, and mountain and lake views.
Top of everyone’s list is the Castle in the Clouds, a mansion tour not to be missed. The views from here to the lakes and mountains are outstanding. You can also get an unbeatable view from the top of the Abenakee Tower.
Lake Winnipesaukee offers something for everyone at any time of year, from swimming and boating in the summer to hiking and walking trails in Spring and even winter activities like cross country skiing and ice fishing. In fall the foliage is out of this world, a true slice of heaven on the shores of this serene lake.
If you’re here for a few days stop off at Angelic Farm, a rural family run farm where you can pick your own berries.
History buffs won’t want to miss a trip to the Wright Museum of WWII in nearby Wolfeboro, or the Libby Museum, right on the lake shore and one of New England’s oldest Natural History centers.
You won’t be disappointed here in any season but surely the fall foliage is a huge draw for nature lovers.
