About this Location

Lake Kanasatka covers an area of 371 acres and has a maximum depth of 40 feet. The lake was formerly known as Red Hill Pond, because of the hill that rises above its northern shore. 

Early maps refer to the lake as “Long Pond”, presumably because of its long and narrow shape, “Quinebarge Pond,” or “Lake Quinebarge”. The lake is located one-half mile north of and nine vertical feet higher than Lake Winnipesaukee. Lake Kanasatka lies at the base of Red Hill and is largely fed by its rain and snow runoff.

The lake has about 180 homes, including the Kilnwood Homeowners Association development, comprising 29 homes with a shared waterfront.
