Why Brenda Teachout chose Newbury

Sunapee Hills at Chalk Pond is a magnificent year round destination. The combination of lakes, mountains, and meadows provide endless opportunities for outdoor fun. Our small community remains hidden from the tourist path and your home is perched on the edge of an exceptional and unspoiled pond, with your own private dock for fishing and canoeing. The relaxing amenities of the Chalk Pond Association are just a short walk down a shared driveway and include a playground, tennis court, private beach, and boat station. The pond is approximately 21 acres in size, with a maximum depth of 12 feet. A jog or stroll around the perimeter is approximately 1.2 miles. Families and professionals will enjoy our quiet neighborhood and and relaxing environment.

What makes this house unique

Our home sleeps 8 people comfortably while providing space for everyone to spread out. The bunk room hosts a TV and DVD player and plenty of space for toys, reading and lazy mornings.

Our beautiful, rich wood post and beam living room, dining room and kitchen is the heart of the home with a black granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. (Gas stove top and dishwasher too!) Enjoy the Dish TV, Wi-Fi and cupboard full of books, games and puzzles. There is a half bath on the living room level with a washer and dryer.

The third floor has two queen master bedrooms each with their own private bathroom and beautiful views over looking Chalk Pond. Wake up to the birds singing at you in the morning and listening to the crickets at night.

Chalk Pond is a quiet retreat as you will never hear motor boats or snowmobiles because they are not allowed! You will hear kids laughing, swimming, playing and families enjoying their moment away from the busy of every day life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were here for a wedding at The Fells, so nice and close by. It was a wonderful place.

Enjoyed the playground and the public beach. Kayaks were great and we got lots of exercise climbing the stairs. The kids had plenty of space to play and sleep.

Thank you for renting to us and making our weekend very memorable.

Quality home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous home for 2 couples and 4 kids to vacation together. One thing we loved was that each couple had an equally nice bedroom with a private bath. The beds were super comfortable and we appreciated that there was plenty of room for our group of 7 around the table for meals. The water of Chalk Pond was crystal clear and we enjoyed our kayaks and paddles boards that we brought along with us. The binder with information and history of the area was very helpful. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us. We made some great memories here and would definitely return for another stay!!!

Great ski house for 2 families of 4!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this really sweet home for 8 people -- 4 parents and 4 kids (ages 7, 8, 9, and 10). It was perfect for our group! Both sets of parents had their own suite with private baths and the kids had a bunk room with their own bath. Parents and kids were separated by the middle living floor which was perfect. :) It was about a 15 minute drive to Mount Sunapee and we were also able to skate a little on Chalk Pond. Very comfortable accommodations and would stay again. Would love to see what it's like in the summer next time!
