Center Harbor is situated between Lake Winnipesaukee and Squam Lake, and located between Meredith and Moultonborough.

The town gets its name from two sources: from its location, centered between Meredith and Moultonborough Harbors, and also for the Senter family, who were owners of a large amount of property in the area. Only a 15 minute drive to Meredith, Center Harbor still offers some quietness and tranquility when on and off the lake. The MS Mt. Washington docks here in one of it's 5 ports throughout the summer.
