About j. Zappala

My husband and I are originally from NH and returned to the New England area in 1996. We have always loved the Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee area and in 2008 we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to purchase a home on Lake Sunapee. Acquiring this cottage next door allows us to maintain the property and off our guests use of our personal kayaks during their stay at the cottage.

j. Zappala purchased this cottage in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this property for Memorial Day weekend and, even though the pictures accurately depict the excellent quality and upkeep of the property, the large size of the rental and its location on Lake Sunapee exceeded my expectations. First, the property was clean and well maintained. There were extra supplies of linens, dishes, and towels for our use and the appliances functioned without any issues. Second, the house is located directly on Lake Sunapee and includes a dock with an enlarged area for sitting over the water. While the water was a little chilly during the weekend that I rented the property, I found the dock and back yard great for relaxing in the sun and enjoying different yard activities. In addition, the house includes an extended porch that provides a great view of the lake and was perfect for grilling and enjoying the weather. Third, and most important, we were very surprised by the size of the house. With three bathrooms and four bedrooms, there was plenty of room so that we did not feel like we were on top of each other. Further, the kitchen and dining areas provided ample space so that we could enjoy a meal inside when we were not lounging on the deck. Last, this house is located within walking distance to a couple nice restaurants, including one company that offers evening dinner cruises on the lake (we did not try the dinner cruise, but we heard that it was great experience). In all, I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at Lake Sunapee and our stay at this cottage was perfect! The cottage is clean and well maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed and made it easy to prepare home cooked meals. Each bedroom is a good size and this cottage offered plenty of room for our four generations of family! The deck is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the lake and watch the boats go by. We rented a boat one day and the dock had plenty of room to come and go with the boat. Everyone enjoyed jumping off the dock and swimming in the crystal clear water! We brought our own Kyacks and floats and the harbor was a perfect place to enjoy floating around. The owners Tim and Judy offer great customer service and a very friendly atmosphere!

Excellent lakeside location on Sunapee harbor.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house that can sleep up to 10 people. Terrific location close to stores and restaurants in Sunapee. Dock and kayaks were fun.

A wonderful Sunapee getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Over the last 10 years we have stayed at different waterfront cottages on Lake Sunapee but this one had everything we needed.... especially a wonderful dock to swim off of and plenty of room to socialize with family and friends. The cottage was very clean. The kitchen was terrific, large new refridgerator, gas stove & lots of counter space. Also parking was not an issue. There was room for all of our cars and any overflow had the harbor area to park.

Judy, the owner was great, always available and very friendly!

Can't wait for next year!!!

Relax with friends/family in Sunapee Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The comforts of a classic New England cottage, that easily sleeps 10. Our group had a wonderful time cooking our own meals and gathering in the large living room to eat, play guitars and sing folk songs. A favorite time was just sitting out on the dock watching the parade of boats going in and out of Sunapee Harbor.

It's an easy walk to Sunapee Harbor for awesome icecream or a visit to the local Thrift Store. Judy was a wonderful host and make everything effortlessly for us.

A Perfect Location on Lake Sunapee

  • 5 of 5

After our second consecutive summer here, I have to admit that there is no other property on Lake Sunapee that offers the combination of an excellent location, great dock, a no-wake zone, with a great rental price as this property does. It is very well maintained and, most importantly, extremely clean. You'll have a difficult time finding any spiderwebs or dustballs in this place.

The lakefront side of the property faces east, offering tremendous warmth and sunshine in the morning. Every morning, I would look forward to just sitting on the dock with my coffee and watch the morning boaters make their way into the harbor for breakfast and coffee at Marzelli's Deli, which is just a short stroll from the property. The dock has been completely rebuilt with very clean surfaces, making it a joy to relax and lay down or jump into the water. I believe the pictures on this website show the old dock. It also has plenty of room to tie-up a boat, which we do every time we're there.

Overall, this is a wonderful property and the owner takes tremendous care in keeping it that way. The location is one of the best on the lake with easy walking access to Dewey Beach and Sunapee Harbor. The no-wake zone makes it perfect for launching your kayak or swimming off the dock. It's just an ideal spot for families. You won't be disappointed...we never are. Enjoy!
