This property is across the street from beautiful, private upper Suncook Lake. A short 2 minute walk from the lake house is required to get to your dock space.

Beautifully renovated and decorated 4 season cape by Upper Suncook Lake in New Hampshire’s Lakes region. This vacation home is close to all the major east coast cities but miles away from all the hustle and bustle. Your rental includes lake access and dock space with plenty of room to park your boat (21 foot or less) and or canoes/kayaks. There is a nice sitting/picnic area down by the lake where you can relax, read a book, or just enjoy the privacy of Upper Suncook Lake. You will have access to a picnic table, 2 Adirondack chairs, and a 20 foot dock down by the lake. Swimming is possible in this area as well. There is also a beautiful town beach just a 1/2 mile by car or a short boat ride from the dock. Avoid the boat traffic and congestion of busy Lake Winnipesauke. The privacy of Upper Suncook is unmatched for this area. You can see in the pictures the beautiful view and privacy with minimal boat traffic on the lake. Most of the west side of the lake is a reserve forest. Upper Suncook Lake is a perfect private location for lake sports, fishing, kayaking, snowmobiling, hiking, biking and much more!

Swimming is possible off the dock although there is a rocky shoreline. There is a beautiful sandy town beach just 1/2 mile from cape by the lake. Some of the best fishing on the lake is from your rented dock space!!! There is room on the dock to park your boat (21 feet or less) canoes or kayaks.

Why Brandt chose Lakes Region

Fabulous Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. The inside was warm and inviting. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with just about any kitchen tool you might need for a Christmas dinner. The bathroom had lots of towels and washcloths. The beds were comfortable with thick quilts that kept us warm. There was a shovel outside to remove the snow from the porch and steps. The owner was very quick to answer any questions we had. Would definitely stay again if we are back in the area.

Cute, clean and serene

  • 5 of 5

This little house is more than a cabin. Nicely updated and very clean. Plenty of towels. Bed was comfy and had nice linens. Wifi worked great. We enjoyed the fire pit one night and the kayak one morning. Very sweet little retreat.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 adult children stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. The home is exceptionally clean, comfortable and well appointed. We felt right at home from the moment we walked into the house. The lake is beautiful and very quiet. The beach is secluded and easily accessed.

Cape by the Lake is wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

Cape by the lake was a very clean, welcoming, cozy 2 bedroom home. We had a nice time spending time near the lake. The owners welcomed our lab and we loved having a place to bring our dog The owners parents (who live next door) were very friendly and full of information about the area. It was a quick walk to the dock area on their sister's property for us to swim and fish. Upper Suncook Lake is a beautiful, and peaceful get-away. The only negative was a home next door with many dogs. While we had a fire in the fire pit one night, the neighboring family was yelling, and dogs were constantly barking. We had to come inside but it was no fault of the owners of our rental. We would recommend this clean home and quiet get away.

Great getaway cottage, even has lake access

  • 5 of 5

We came to this cottage to get together with family and it was wonderful. The beds are comfortable and this is important to us. It has a great backyard for kids to play and dogs to romp. It has lake access to Upper Suncook Lake and what a great pristine lake. We could hear the loons at night. We would love to return another year.

Mt Vernon, Virginia

Perfect location to enjoy central New Hampshire

  • 5 of 5

We rented Brandt's property for a week as our son was getting married in Gilmanton, NH. It worked out perfectly - the wedding party visited on several occasions and made good use of the lake and its amenities. The place was nicely furnished and very comfortable. The weather didn't quite cooperate for our entire week due if we ever need to visit our new in-laws, we have the perfect place to stay.
