Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire’s largest lake, has a rich history and 258 natural islands along its shore. It’s been said that many famous Archie comic strips were written there by creator Bob Montana. He and his family once owned and vacationed in a one-room cedar cottage on private Windswept Island in the town of Tuftonboro. Now on the market for just under $330,000, Windswept Island is a .26-acre property that faces south and overlooks the Belknap Mountain Range. It includes a private dock and the 1958-built cottage, a wood-paneled studio with a massive stone fireplace and one bath. The rustic retreat is 2.5 hours from Boston. The listing notes that it will be sold furnished, has no direct heating and cooling, and is wired for electricity from a generator.
