Newfound Lake is the third largest of the lakes that are situated wholly within the borders of New Hampshire and Newfound Lake real estate has proven especially popular because of its tranquil and unspoiled surroundings. The lake itself is fed by natural spring waters and is refreshed twice annually while much of the outlying region has been set aside for natural conservation.
