Default celeb visits to Winnipesaukee

I am a journalist writing about Lake Winnipesaukee...and I'm hoping to find out about the visits of certain famous people--namely Sophia Loren, Bob Dole, Prince Albert, Grace Kelly, and Drew Barrymore. Does anyone know when these individuals visited Winnipesaukee and what they did there? And do you know where I might find photos or news writeups?

Thanks!

Bill

I recall seeing snippets that include Lloyd Bridges, Count Basie, President Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Fonda and I believe Katharine Hepburn, since part of On Golden Pind was filmed here. Mitt Romney, Fritz Weatherbee, Brad Garret, and Jerry Remy to name a few.

Default Lakes Region Playhouse

hosted a number of celebrities when they were located where Fireside Motel is in Gilford. I believe there is a write up located in the Gilford History book located in the Gilford library. Many famous actors actually perform on stage!

Default Famous People

Seth and Eloise Armen were owners of Steamboat Island for many years and they also owned The Lakes Region Playhouse. On more than one occasion they would be host to actors coming to the playhouse for summer theater. Many famous people visited and had residences in Wolfeboro. Madame Chiang Kai-shek had a residence people referred to as "The Chinese Embassy". The boat she owned Alalou II is now "Miss Meredith" . Check with Wolfeboro Historical Society and I am sure you will find more info. Good luck.

Default interesting tow

Way back when I was a counsellor at Camp Idlewild, a friend and I had a small outboard skiff and we spent a day off putting around the lake. We forgot only one thing - refilling the fuel tank! We ran out of gas next to Nipple Rock. After about a half hour trying to flag down some help, we finally got some from a very nice, old woody with around 8 folks on board. They towed us into Silver Sands. Upon thanking them, we finally got a good look at who was aboard - the cast at the Playhouse including Myrna Loi. We were so surprised that we didn't even think of getting autographs. We got gas and continued our explorings.

Deborah Pagent used to visit Chian Kai-shek every year. I remember when we were high school kids, I worked in the Dime Store and she came in wearing slacks and heels. That just wasn't done, we were amazed!!

You are right that Sophia Loren visited Lucy's on Cow Island. I believe she has done it several times. I think they even have pics up in the house. You need to see if you contact the family that runs Lucy's/ . They are local to the area.

Debra was married to Madame Chiang Kai-Shek's nephew, Ling C. Kung. The home was known as Spruce Acres in Wolfeboro. My Grandparents were the caretakers at Spruce Acres in the 60's. I remember visiting the house many times as a kid. Unfortunately it no longer stands today.

A lot of the Red Sox stayed on Sewall Road in Wolfeboro. I don't know if Babe stayed there.

I just remembered Sammy White the Red Sox catcher stayed in Winter Harbor.

Back in the sixties my family vacationed at the Holiday bay cottages (or whatever they were called back then) on Paugus bay. At the resort next to us (Christmas island?), Jayne Mansfield was staying with her husband and crew including body guards. I think she was performing at the playhouse. I remember her and her husband with guards all piling into row boats in their Sunday best with her little dog for a trip on the bay. The whole event was hilarious as they tried to stay dry and manage the dog. My sister and I laughed ourselves to sleep that night.

Of the Boston Bruins in the early 70's rented the cottage next to us on the Walmart side of the lake. He would have multiple beer parties with fellow team mates. I remember the beautiful women, the beer flowing and the skinny dipping in the lake! Those were the days!

Jayne Mansfield stayed at the former Sweetwood Cottages, which was between Christmas Island Resort and Holiday Bay.

Default Princess Grace

Worked at the Melvin Village General Store (Geeze Louise now) in early 1970's and while visiting Bald Peak, Princess Grace would do some grocery shopping there. She was treated as "regular folk" and would leave with one or two bags. I would cheerfully carry them to her car as I was swooning over her beauty.

Not sure if it's true or not (First I had heard of it), but was talking to a guy this Monday who said that John Cena had built a multi million-dollar home up in Meredith on the water. Anyone else know or have heard that? Maybe Triple H has been influencing him

Thanks for that clarification Major. My memories are a bit hazy from that time (it was the sixties you know). Sounds right as Christmas Island is not adjacent to Holiday Bay. What's in the place of Sweetwoods now?

Sweetwood Cottages were condominiumized (is that a word?) in the late '80s/early 90s.

Default Princess Grace at the lake

Hi, I worked at Bald Peak Colony Club(in Melvin Village) for several years in the mid 70's, and Princess Grace had dinner at the restaurant there. She had friends who had a home at Bald Peak and was staying with them.

Not sure how true this is, but my father-in-law used to tell me that Sinatra had visited and played golf at Bald Peak.

A friend of mine delivered some tourism information to Princess Grace and Prince Rainer while they were at Bald Peak. Imagine her surprise to find Ingrid Bergman visiting as well.

Obviously the biggest thing to ever happen was filming On Golden Pond back in about 1980. Set on Squam but the actors were seen all over Center Harbor since they were staying at the Mead Farm on Center Harbor Neck

My parents both worked at Mead Farm part time and struck up a friendship with a number of the cast and crew.

The opening sequence for the TV show Newart shows a car driving in the area and from what I remember this scene was some B roll for Golden Pond that was never used in the movie. Henry Fonda is in the car seen here making the turn in Center Sandwich

Default Le Tigre

Georges Benjamin Clemenceau, nick- named "Le Tigre" (The Tiger) (1841 –1929), was said to have visited the lake region in June of 1869. Clemenceau served as the Prime Minister of France from 1906 to 1909, and again from 1917 to 1920. Leading France for most of the final years of World War I, he was one of the principal architects of the Treaty of Versailles.

Smile celeb visit to Winnipesaukee

It was a night we all looked forward to before going back home to Bahstun for September. The Parents took us out to the Arlberg for dinner. Must have been 15 or 16 years old, suddenly the dining area got real quiet, and then in prances in good ole Captain Kirk.
William Shatner was seated at a table with an absolute knockout woman. Hard to continue with dinner, but we all got the look to behave and respect peoples privacy. Maybe they were picking blueberries on Belknap! Camping??? Smug!

Default celeb visit Winni

Madame Chiang Kai-Shek the wife of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek lived many summers at her home in Tipps Cove. Just beyond Jockey Cove heading west. She was 106 when she past in 2003. She was the only women at the time to speak before the US Senate in 1943 requesting support for her husbands military battle fighting the China Communist. She would be seen in Wolfeboro every summer with her body guards.

That reminds me of when we were kids and worked in the Dime Store and Debra Paget always came to visit the Chiang Kai Sheks. She wore pants with high heels at the times which was something nobody around here did! After all these years I still remember that. When they were in residence there were armed guards standing along the shoreline.

Don't be surprised if you spot Ed Asner around Meredith this October. He's performing at the Winnipesaukee Playhouse!

Tickets are going quickly so if you want to catch this sitcom icon better book ahead: http://www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.or...-prostate.html

I assume that Mitt Romney is the resident with the most "star power" today, assuming he still spends time at his Wolfeboro residence.

My mom just reminded me of a time when we were at the old Paugus Diner and Vincent Price and Claude Raines were in the next booth. I don't remember because I was probably about 10 at the time.

I bet that was common since the playhouse is right up the street.

This compound was bought and razed by the CEO of Stanley Tools in the mid to late 90s. He built a beautiful home/compound of his own. This guy had so much influence, he made the pwc company of his choice offer their product at Goodhue & Hawkins Boatyard (Wolfeboro) even though the territory of the product was geographically protected (dealers not too close to one another).

Mittens is soon to be ordained as the new Senator from Utah. Probably bad form for him to spend much time in N.H. while representing Utah.

I do believe he was the CEO of Black and Decker. However, the CEO of Stanley built a house on Sewall Road about the same time frame.

The president of France (Sarkovsky at the time?) rented a place on the lake. He had a huge amount of security as I recall. I think there were a few interesting stories at that time.

From the information that has been gathered for me it was the CEO of Black and Decker. The confusion may lie in that Stanley tools bought B&D. And the CEO of Stanley tools then purchased the property.

I believe you're referring to Nicolas Sarkozy. I remember photos taken of him shaking his fist at news photographers who (in his opinion) got too close to his boat!

Default Bob Montana (Archie Comics)

Bob Montana, the man who created Archie and the gang owned the house on Windswept Island just off Cow. After his untimely death from a heart attack, the house went for sale in 2016.
(https://www.curbed.com/2016/5/27/117...hampshire-lake)

We used to go to Harilsa's when we were kids and buy the comics each week and read them over and over and over again during rainy days on Cow Island. Some of my best memories.
