Summer is coming (Updated 05-20-17)

Get ready for Summer!  As we embark on another new year, the board and officers want to wish everyone a happy and safe summer.  

Come see us at the annual meeting on June 24th.  We'll be serving coffee and doughnuts before the meeting starts.  This is a great time to meet your neighbors on the island and participate in the annual meeting.  We will be voting for 2 Board of Directors, the Alton FD will be on hand to issue fire permits, and we'll be here to hear from you.  Hope to see you there.  

For those using the Rattlesnake landing this summer, please be sure to utilize your issued parking passes hung from your mirror.  Each resident should have 2 up and 2 down passes.  These passes are designated so that no resident can have more than 2 vehicles in the lower lot, allowing others on the island to have a chance at getting some of the coveted lower parking. All passes are good for the upper lot.  Also, please make sure your trailers are all properly tagged and parked in the trailer pen.  Cars and trailers not properly identified will be towed.  

Have a safe and great summer!

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.
