Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee, Laconia, NH

Weirs Beach is a recreation destination with something for everyone, including beautiful lake and mountain views, water sports and leisure, dining, drinks and entertainment. The area draws tens of thousands of visitors each year.

First, there’s the actual Weirs Beach, a beautiful, wide, sandy, public beach on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire’s largest and most popular lake.

If boating is your thing, neighboring are Thurston Marina  and Winnisquam Marine, whose aquatic offerings include new and used boats, parts and accessories, dock space, storage, and boat rentals.

MS Mount Washington Cruise Ship

Need a break from the water and sun? Adjacent to the beach is a historic boardwalk running along Lakeside Avenue. The Winnipesaukee Pier juts onto the lake from this thriving main boulevard. In this area you’ll find the main summer port of the 230-foot Mount Washington cruise ship, which offers daily, two and a half hour scenic cruises, and evening dinner dance cruises on Lake Winnipesaukee. The Weirs also offers a large public dock, making it a popular destination for boaters.

Right in the center of things is the station for the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad, which operates one and two-hour passenger excursions along the western shore of Lake Winnipesaukee in restored vintage coaches.

The Weirs Beach area is also famous for hosting Half Moon Amusement Arcades, which offers two arcades—a Penny Arcade and a Family Fun Center—both of which offer a wide variety of video games, simulators, pinball machines, antique games you can play for a dime, and a huge assortment of prizes you can win by playing Skeeball, Skil-O-Bingos, and other redemption games.

If you like to eat (and who doesn’t?), Weirs area dining includes Weathervane’s Lobster in the Rough, a casual New England restaurant (with a full bar) serving chowders, fried and broiled seafood and shellfish, and Anthony’s Pier Restaurant, which offers renowned clam chowder, burgers, and lobster rolls complemented by gorgeous views of Lake Winnipesaukee.

In short, the Weirs Beach area is arguably the most fun-packed quarter mile in the entire Lakes Region. If you think Weirs Beach sounds great, wouldn’t it be amazing to own an affordable primary or vacation home that’s within an easy, level walk to the beach and boardwalk and pier?

409 lakeside avenue, laconia, NHMy latest listing at 409 Lakeside Avenue (MLS# 4764645) is a cozy two bed, one bath Cape that is full of potential and situated in a fantastic, quiet location centrally located to all the best recreation, food and fun the Lakes Region has to offer.

An even closer walk the other direction from this adorable home takes you to the incredible Akwa Marina Yacht Club Beach Bar, a beautiful lakeside post and beam pavilion that is open to the public, offers a great food menu, incredible views, and a Caribbean island experience right here on the lake.

Some updates are in order, but this home is low maintenance, featuring public water and sewer, a metal roof (the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors estimates metal roofing to last 40 to 80 years), vinyl siding (no blistering paint), and a very small, easy-to-maintain yard.

Weirs Beach Home for sale: 409 Lakeside Avenue, Laconia, NH 03246Features include a good-sized private deck and an adjoining three-season sunroom, both with seasonal, peekaboo views of Winnipesaukee. There’s central air conditioning for those hot days, an attached one-car garage, an open kitchen/dining area, a new door/screen door, a three-year-old furnace, two-year-old carpet on the main floor, a propane “wood” stove in the living room, and plenty room in the basement for storage and workshop. The upstairs bedrooms are adjoining (one would make a great office or craft room), and 409 Lakeside Avenue features “Commercial Resort” (CR) zoning, which offers a multitude of possibilities.
