Celebrities love kicking back on a lake where nobody seemingly knows they are there.  That's why this small town on the shores of New Hampshire's largest lake tries to stay out of sight.

Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, was incorporated in 1759, and rightfully dubbed itself "the oldest summer resort in America."

With a population of just over 6,000 during the year, travelandleisure.com reported that the number swells to over 30,000 in the summer.

Dubbed the "perfect summer getaway", Wolfeboro is right on Lake Winnipesaukee and boasts of good old-fashioned relaxation along the lake. People stroll down the main street, joyfully lick their ice cream cones, and take it slower while savoring all life's little pleasures in this picturesque New England town.

Celebrities like Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Kimmel visit in an unassuming manner, trying to soak in as much of the New England summer as possible with their friends and family.

The town isn't just bordered by Lake Winnipesauke, but five other lakes and ponds, so it's surrounded by glistening, clear waters.

Wolfeboro's The Pickering House Inn was originally built in 1813 by John Pickering, but soon became a private residence.  Throughout it's transformations and expansions, it's become a sought-after place by celebs to relax in a private setting in New England while maintaining the service and privacy of entertaining famous people.

Other famous resorts include Lake Wentworth Inn, 1810 Bed & Breakfast, and Lakeview Inn Bed & Breakfast, according to TripAdvisor.com.

In 1968, Wolfeboro hosted a famous visitor with her family.  Coretta Scott King was seeking solitude after her husband was assassinated.  She stayed at a family friend's home in Wolfeboro, and the family enjoyed the lake and the easy-going lifestyle of New England, out of the limelight.
