Rattlesnake Island Real Estate

Why is it called Rattlesnake Island?
First let me say there are no reports of rattlesnakes on rattlesnake island today.
There are some great stories about this. One pits 2 brothers against one another to take control of the island. One of the brothers built a wall splitting the island down the middle and then put rattlesnakes on the other side of the wall to drive his rival brother off the island. But, the plan backfires and the rattlesnakes infest the whole island and drive both of them out. Read all the stories here.

If you are looking for secluded waterfront vacation home, then Rattlesnake Island may be just the place for you. The island offers 104 acres of fantastic views, and wonderful opportunities for fishing and swimming. Rattlesnake Island is located in Lake Winnipesaukee, just off shore of Alton NH. and is part the town of Alton. To see the view you can use the Rattlesnake Island webcam.

Rattlesnake Island boats the highest elevation of any island ,at 391 feet above Lake Winnipesaukee. The fishing is great with a lowest depth in Lake Winnipesaukee of 187 feet just off the south-east shore.
