Lake Winnipesaukee is home to many islands, with different numbers depending upon whom you speak with but a general rule of thumb is there are around 250 islands. The largest non-bridged island would be Bear Island, followed by Cow Island, and the third largest would be Rattlesnake Island.
Living on an island is a unique experience and many islanders prefer the peace and tranquility of island life over the hustle and bustle often seen on the mainland.
