The Republican presidential candidate took time off the campaign trail for his family’s annual vacation at their home on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee.
July 2, 2012 The vacation home of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney rests beside Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, N.H. The 13-acre estate features a six-bedroom house, a horse stable with guest apartments above it, a $630,000 boat house, tennis and volleyball courts and a shoreline stretching 768 feet — more than double the length of a football field — according to public property records. Romney and his wife, Ann, purchased the home in 1997 for $2.5 million and later bought adjoining land. This year, records show, the estate was assessed at $8 million.Charles Dharapak/AP
