Ossipee Lake is the 8th largest lake in New Hampshire and is often considered to be a hidden gem of the Mt. Washington Valley/ North Conway NH region. At 3,092 acres Ossipee Lake is dwarfed by it's close neighbor, Lake Winnepausaukee at just over 44,000 acres. However, when you compare Ossipee Lake to the second largest lake in NH (Lake Umbagog at 7,850 acres) you can see that there is plenty of room for fun and sport.
Development on Ossipee Lake has been much slower than many of it's other southern NH neighbors. The lake sits on the Ossipee NH and Freedom NH town line. Both communities have waterfront access and an assortment of private homes along the water. Even today, the waterfront property comes at a premium. However, your vacation/investment dollar buys a lot more home here than on any other lake south of Pinkham Notch. Waterfront homes and land are a limited market and will often have a more stable appeal. Another option for enjoying the lake without the purchase cost and taxes of waterfront homes is to purchase in a shared waterfront community. Lake Ossipee Village in Freedom NH and The Bluffs in Ossipee NH are both excellent examples of communities with off-water homes that enjoy a shared beach and/or boat ramp. The home owner can enjoy the benefits of lakefront without the high tax burden.
Activities on the lake range from winter snowmobile trails and cross country skiing networks to spring fishing. Summer activities range from days at the beach and swimming to the raft to water skiing and power boating. The lake community is considered to be part of the Mount Washington Valley. The hub of the valley is North Conway NH, where you will find every type of restaurant and shop you could need to fill your shopping and dining needs.
