New London house description
Charming, fresh 1 bedroom, 1 bath home, located on beautiful and quiet 600 acre Pleasant Lake in New London, New Hampshire. 85’ of private, shared waterfront are right below your deck, with 6x30’ dock, sandy bottom swimming area, picnic table, and canoe.
This very recently renovated and furnished house sleeps 2-4+, including a master bedrooms just above the water’s edge with a queen bed and private bath, plus a fold-out queen-sized couch in the living area. The house is insulated for year-round living, with propane heat, and a propane fireplace. There is space for parking several cars a few steps away, plus a shared two car garage for storage of your car, bikes, water toys, kayaks, etc.
This is a superior choice for summer and fall vacations of a week or more. Pleasant Lake is pure, safe, and quiet (no jet skis), and offers excellent swimming, boating, sailing, fishing, waterskiing, plus ducks and loons to enjoy. Our dock sits in up to seven feet of water, has a ladder into the water, and you may bring or locally rent a boat and keep it at the dock. The boat launch site is a very short walk or paddle away, as is the Elkins Beach town park. The charming college town of New London is a short drive, a walk, or a bike ride away.
This home has good privacy, with its own lawn, trees, and gardens. It shares the lakefront and dock with our 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath home, which is immediately across the other side of the road (visible in photo taken from the water). That home is also available at the same rates. Together, the two make an outstanding family & friends compound! If you have interest in that home instead, or both, please inquire or check property #15165 on vacationrentals.
Our kitchen is fully furnished with a refrigerator with ice maker, electric stove, microwave, toaster oven, blender, and coffee maker. It is also fully equipped with cookware, dishes, glasses, coffee mugs, flatware, picnic ware, etc. The dining area has a table for four, and there are also four high stools for sitting or eating at the kitchen peninsula countertop- The living area includes Cable TV, DVD player, VCR, a (fold-out) couch and chairs.
- There is a lovely stone fireplace in the living area, with a remote-controlled gas fire to enjoy during cool days or nights.
- The bedroom has a queen bed, a full closet and two dressers. All bedding,
including linens and pillows, are provided. The bedroom also has a TV with cable but the views of the lake out of the three windows may cause you to skip TV for a week!
- The bathroom has a tub with shower, a vanity with sink & lighted mirror, a washer/dryer, and a hair dryer. It has two entrances, one off the bedroom, and the other from the living area.
All towels are provided, including beach towels.
- There is a large front and side deck with built-in benches, plus patio furniture of tables, 6 chairs, umbrella, and gas grill & barbeque tools.

Had a great visit staying in New London at this rental. It's quiet, great location close to town. The rental is very comfortable and adds to the lake experiance.

Recommended for: Sightseeing.
Wow. This place was spectacular! Swim, Boat, Sun, Read, snack, grill, sip, sleep, watch the mist roll in, watch the mist roll out, see the drops move across the water, watch the birds, watch the fish, the view changed regularly. We were looking for a spot to truly be at peace, and this was it. It was so comfortable and clean without being fussy. close to New London for restaurants, etc. Go into town for summer theater at the playhouse. Close to Kearsarge for Hiking, close to Sunapee for family activities, close to Dartmouth for lectures, etc. I cannot believe how lucky we were to find this spot. Thank you! And we hope to return for many years to come!

Why the Owner Chose New London:
The charming college town of New London is the cultural, tax-free shopping, and culinary center of the Sunapee region. There are a number of restaurants and shops of all categories to choose from, plus a fine library for those rainy days. The village green and bandstand often have free concerts. There is a sports store in town where you can rent bikes and kayaks. There is a supermarket, drugstore, hardware store, and a NH State liquor store in town, plus many more interesting shops. During the summer, the New London Barn Playhouse offers wonderful summer stock musicals and plays for all ages. It has been doing so for over 75 years! See their website for details. Colby Sawyer College in New London has a beautiful campus, which includes the Hogan Center, available to the public. Hogan has an indoor pool, gym, running track, racquetball and squash, and a comprehensive fitness center. There are a number of challenging golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Notable nearby public courses are The Country Club of NH, Ragged Mountain GC, Newport GC, Eastman GC, and the family-friendly 9 hole course at Twin Lake Village resort on Little Sunapee Lake. The nearby, private, Donald Ross course of Lake Sunapee Country Club is also available to our renters. In addition to your own waterfront, we include passes to the two New London town beach parks, nearby Elkins Beach and Bucklin Beach on Little Sunapee Lake. These are wonderful for children and have lifeguards, picnic, and play areas. The walk or bike around Pleasant Lake is very popular, and connects to a series of woodland trails that traverse miles of the surrounding area. Museums and historical sites include The Fells (John Hays' 1891 estate) on Lake Sunapee, several Shaker village museums nearby, the New London Historical Society grounds in town, nearby Muster Field Farm, and the Saint-Gaudens historic site.
