Labor Day Update!  (Updated 8-15-18)

The end of summer is upon us, and we're getting ready for the big Labor Day weekend.  We have some late summer updates to keep you apprised of: 

  • Trailer lot work - We are continuing to improve the lot, expand, flatten, and make it easier to navigate.  During the week of Aug 21st we'll be working on the gate side of the trailer lot and cleaning that section up.  Expectations are that you should have access to your trailer during this work period.  Any trailers without a valid tag will be removed from the property.
  • Parking - Please be courteous to your neighbors and park in the lower lot only if there a a space available.  Please don't try to make a space you don't fit in or encroach on our neighbors property.  No Parking signs are going up on Rollins road.  Please leverage the upper lot if the lower is full.  
  • Sept/Oct - Your annual dues will be sent out.  Please make sure you have provided us with your correct address.
  • Property Transfers - We have had many property transfers this summer, with many new residents joining us.  If you are planning to sell this fall, 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.

Registration will open soon. Look for a communication from RIA in late May.
