Staying in an uninsulated cottage with no running water to boot isn't my idea of a good time. Unless April is unusually warm, May 1 is soon enough to start enjoying the season.

Alton Water Dept

Since we are on town water, we can't open up until late April after Alton turns on the water beyond the back bay bridge on Route 11.

Sandy Point

Just wish the Farmer's Kitchen had taken over Sandy Point Restaurant. The diner in Wolfeboro isn't very big. Will this be open year round or just tourist season?

Changed made

Correct, Barney Bear. Too many toll booths too close together on the GSParkway. I live right off Exit 157. They have improved the spacing by eliminating half the toll booths but doubling the tolls....

Winter Carnival

Most activities will be in the parking lot instead of on the ice. Several years ago when the ice was thinner too, they had horse drawn wagon rides instead of the sled.

Property taxes

Wow! Their property taxes are almost $1000/yr less than what I pay here in NJ for a house assessed at $149K. Mine would sell for about $325K and is a 1300 square ft cape on a 48x100' lot. I chuckle...

Wolfeboro Bay?

To me it looks like Barndoor Island behind The Mount and Rattlesnake Island in the background. Gunstock all the way in the back??
