Milton Richardson bought a trio of Islands in 1886 known as The Three Sisters, named in honor of his daughters, Harriet, Louise & Mildred. Fast forward 135 years and one of these special islands can now be yours. Ithaka Island is the Southernmost of the three sisters and features a cottage built in 1910. Ithaka welcomes all guests with a lovely Gazebo on the water's edge. Once docked you are swept back to a much earlier time on Squam Lake. Enter the authentic cottage from the wrap around mahogany porch into an almost perfect time capsule. Exposed wooden walls and ceilings lead you to the center hearth where you can get warm on a cool summer evening. A large dining room table has plenty of seats for all of your loved ones and guests. 5 rustic bedrooms can accommodate your party after a wonderful day on the lake. Several outbuildings for storage, an outhouse and a secondary dock. Ithaka is being sold with a boathouse slip in the Squam Channel in downtown Holderness for easy access. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to steward your very own Island on Squam, do not delay.
