Kick back and relax in a waterfront chalet that combines cottage charm and modern amenities. Built in 2004, the house is on the sunny northern side of Chalk Pond, a pristine, 21-acre lake in Newbury, NH. Enjoy the waterside from your private dock with fishing (NH license required age 16+) and swimming, or canoe/kayak over to the tiny island in the middle of the Pond. No powered craft are allowed on Chalk Pond; one full-size canoe, two single kayaks and life jackets are provided with the house. You also have access to the homeowner's association private sandy beach, basketball court, tennis courts and newly updated playground.
Would you like a walk-through, VIDEO tour of the house and waterfront? From our listing's main page and main photo, house exterior front, click on the left arrow to see the video OR click on the right arrow and scroll through the photos to the end. (I apologize in advance for my shaky camera work.)
From our front door, it's a five minute walk to the Stoney Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can hike two different trails through a beautiful 362-acre preserve. Watch for moose, deer, flying squirrels, even porcupines! Take a 15-minute drive to Mt. Sunapee Harbor, Mt. Sunapee Ski Resort, or the quaint town of New London which has great shopping, restaurants and a summer stock theatre.
The master bedroom has a queen bed and private deck, the second bedroom has one twin and one full bed. The downstairs den has a TV and queen futon. The full deck off the living room offers a tranquil view of the water and features deck furniture and a gas grill. Newly finished walk-out basement has two futon chairs and TV with DirecTV satellite; great place for kids and teens to hang out!
Wood paneling, hand-painted stencils, wall quilts and country decor give the house a comfortable, rustic feel. It's scrupulously clean and complimented by modern conveniences not all cottages have: completely equipped kitchen, dishwasher, two full baths, full-sized washer and dryer and Wi-Fi access.

From warm summer days and cool summer nights to spectacular fall foliage and crystal clear water, let our home at Chalk Pond be your choice for a restful getaway.
