Hemlock Harbor is very private. The house is located in a harbor with a few other houses that are not visible from our house. However, Sunapee Harbor is within walking distance and there is a lot of activity there during the summer.
Year Purchased: 1957
Why the Owner Chose Sunapee: Hemlock Harbor has been in the family since 1957. We love the setting and the house and enjoy sharing it with others who appreciate it. We rent the property to pay the outrageously high property taxes!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Hemlock is a marvelous place to relax, gather with family and friends, write/paint/create (27 books were written here) and play. The Great Room is the gathering place inside with a huge table and benches for eating, playing cards, visiting or working on a project in front of the fire or looking out over the Lake. Player piano and marimba provide lively entertainment if you don't want to watch Cable or just read in the seating area. Five bedrooms provide plenty of space; there are seating areas and desks in most. Ground floor wheelchair accessible.
There is limited access to the pristine class 'A' waters of Lake Sunapee and very few properties with 550' of shoreline in a quiet cove. We can see neighbors' docks but no other houses. Winter is magical whether there is snow over the ice for cross country skiing and skidooing or clear for skating. It's a lovely place, charming, not flashy or modern but with what a person really needs available.
Consider an off season retreat with family or friends. Facilitate a retreat for writers, scrabble players, kayakers, photographers. Proprietor available to prepare meals for groups if pre-arranged.
