ICE Out!  (Updated 5-04-19)

The season is kicking off!  This year we have many new residents opening for the first time.  Congratulations on becoming part of the Rattlesnake experience.  

Some early season thoughts:

  • The Board is aware of some vandalism in the trailer lot over the winter.  We will be addressing with some ideas at the annual meeting. 
  • Speaking of the annual meeting, it will be June 22 at Elacoya Barn and Grille.  Please be sure to attend.  If you can't attend, please assign your proxy.  Registration is on the right side of this page.
  • There is a lot of debris in the water.  Please be careful navigating these early season waters.
  • Please make sure to put your trailer tags on your trailers, and put parking passes in your cars when parking on RIA Property. We want to make sure it is RIA residents who are using our facilities, and those who aren't residents will be towed and removed.  
  • Property Transfers - We had many property transfers last summer, and we expect similar results this upcoming season.  If you are planning to sell, please see updated rules about First Right of Approval on the Property Transfers Page. 
Thank you for a great summer!  

Thank you, 

RIA Board and Officers

Welcome to Rattlesnake Island

Rattlesnake Island is the 3rd largest island on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.  The resources on this website are meant for use by Rattlesnake Island Association Membership and Officers.

Association Overview

Today, the island is governed by an association of its members.

The Rattlesnake Island Association (“RIA”) was incorporated in the state of New Hampshire on May 12, 1969.

Its Articles of Incorporation were restated March 15, 1994.
All Rattlesnake Island property owners belong to the RIA. There are 186 individually owned lots on the perimeter of the island. There are two lots on the interior of the island’s northwest side that are privately owned. The remaining interior property on the northwest side is owed by the RIA. The interior property on the southeast side of the island is owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust.
In addition to its interest in the island’s interior land, the RIA also owns a number of lots on the island’s perimeter:

Copeland’s Cove
Washington View
Mountain View
Major View
Raccoon Point
Pow Wow
Young’s Cove

The land owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust is accessible through one designated waterfront lot and dock on the southeast end of the island. This island access is limited to Trust members and their accompanied guests.
In addition to the interior northwest land and the 8 waterfront island lots, the RIA owns one lot on its neighboring Sleeper Island. This lot is used to bring power to Rattlesnake Island from the mainland.
Upon request, all members of the RIA are provided with keys to the launch ramp and trailer storage area and parking passes for the upper and lower parking lots.

2019 Annual Meeting will be June 22, 2019.

22 Jun 2019 8:30 AM • Ellacoya Barn and Grille
