Center Harbor gets its name from two sources: from its location, centered between Meredith and Moultonborough Harbors, and also for the Senter family, who were owners of a large amount of property in the area. The town was a landing place for lake steamers and stagecoaches, making it a popular summer resort. Center Harbor was a favorite spot of John Greenleaf Whittier, and the home of Dudley Leavitt, author of the first Farmer’s Almanac in 1797.
Center Harbor sits on the west shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, and is a quaint village of the lakes region. There is a beautiful sandy beach nestled along the pristine waters, and home to the Center Harbor Inn which offers the perfect setting to experience a great getaway! The well known M/S Mount Washington makes her call to port here in Center Harbor and takes along excited visitors and locals as well.
This town is close to many area attractions as Weirs Beach, Mount Washington, and many more attractions and adventures!
