Governor’s Island is a bridged 500-acre island on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Like many of the lakefront communities on Lake Winnipesaukee, the exclusive nature of the Island is ensured by the value of the property on the Island. There is nowhere else on the lake with such a sense of luxury throughout the whole neighborhood. The location of Governor’s Island is ideal for those who want a great neighborhood but a short drive to dinners out, shopping, a large hospital and what is becoming more important, Laconia Airport, with an airstrip of just under 6,000 feet.
The majority of the Island is preserved as natural woodlands with cross-country and hiking trails. As a real estate owner on Governor’s Island, you become a member of the Governor’s Island Club (GIC), and members can be as active or as private as they choose.
Active members of the GIC enjoy member picnics, a Christmas party, several cocktail parties, tennis tournaments, an eight-week children’s program with social events and more. The GIC clubhouse can be used for members free of charge during the summer and the beach is often the place where members host wedding receptions, anniversaries, etc.
The island is one of only a few locations around the lake where the entire island enjoys a consistency of development designed to maximize the character of the environment and protect the owners' investments.
