Moultonborough, NH Town Profile & Lifestyle

By landmass, Moultonborough is the largest lakefront community in the Lakes Region, with 60 square miles of land area and 15 square miles of water encompassing several lakes. Moultonborough is noteworthy for having one of the lowest property tax rates in New Hampshire while offering an excellent school system. The area’s numerous lakes and ponds provide many water sport activities. The village’s Old Country Store is on the National Register of Historic Places, and at the Loon Center, you can walk along quiet lakeside paths and listen for their call.


Moultonborough abuts Sandwich to the north, Tuftonboro to the south, and Center Harbor to the west. 


Moultonborough is one of eight towns with shorefront on Lake Winnipesaukee. It is unique among its neighbors in that its shorefront includes many “fingers” of land that jut out into the lake, allowing for countless surprising spots to situate a home or cabin. 


The main waterfront areas are along the so-called “Neck.” Down the length of the Neck, Moultonborough Neck Road eventually leads to a short bridge and onto Long Island, which covers about 1,200 acres. Long Island is Winnipesaukee’s largest island and one of only five bridged islands on the big lake.


Recreational opportunities include town beaches, camping, Squam Lake, Lake Winnipesaukee, and others, Moultonborough Airport, and the Castle in the Clouds.
