Overview

About the property

Large Apartment 6 miles from Mount & Lake Sunapee

Your home away from home that is all about R&R and reconnecting with the outdoors. A spacious modern suite with all you need for a perfect get away. There is no TV so you can thoroughly enjoy the peace & quiet. We do have free wifi. Cell phone coverage is spotty. Enjoy your coffee or wine out on the deck listening to nature. We have a gorgeous secluded 25 acre wooded lot. Enjoy!

This suite was all built by Brett over 3 years; completed in 2011. All appliances are new full sized stainless steel. Soap stone corner sink. Granite counter. A dining table that seats 4. Linens are provided for short term guests. If you are staying longer than 2 weeks we do ask you provide your own linens (queen sized sheets & towels). We have plenty of blankets & quilts for both beds. The sofa pulls out easily & has a very comfortable larger mattress. The bathroom has a standup spacious glass corner shower with over head heater, light & fan. Washer & dryer are located in the bathroom. Please bring your own laundry soap. Just ask to use the BBQ grill (you'll need your own charcoal). The corner gas wood stove heats the space nicely.

We are in an outdoor paradise with all winter, summer, spring, and fall activities. Just 90 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from the Manchester airport, 20 minutes from Colby Sawyer College in New London.

Summer is absolutely gorgeous in New England. Weather varies & frequently changes but can range from 50-80's. We do have a window unit air conditioner if needed. And there is a very large ceiling fan.

Fall leaf peeping is at it's best here in NH peeking around 2nd week of October (depending on the weather) and going for a long drive or hike is a must.

Winter adventure is all around as we are very close to skiing at Mt. Sunapee Resort, Ragged Mountain, Pats Peak, and Eastman Cross Country Center. We generally cross country ski the nearby snowmobile trails. You can snowshoe our property for some great exercise.

4 Wheel drive and or All wheel drive are highly recommended in this area. The house is located ~1 mile off the main road and is a very compact dirt road. The road is town maintained for snow plowing and sanding.

About Cindi & Brett Croft

Owned by Brett and Cindi Croft.

Cindi & Brett Croft purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Cindi & Brett Croft chose Lake Sunapee

We love living in the woods in NH. We came here for the clean air and the peace and quiet from SLC, Utah. At night the woods come alive with crickets, owls, and wildlife. There is something to be said for living closer to a lake and a ski resort than to a grocery store!

What makes this apartment unique

You might spot turkeys, fox, deer and moose on the property.

Get away from your busy life -- enjoy nature & relax.

The absence of a TV is intentional. We want people to experience a vacation away from media.

WIFI is free.

very peaceful and quiet

  • 4 of 5

I was very pleased with this rental, it was very peaceful and quiet. My daughter is student over a Colby-Sawyer College and needed a weekend away from the dorms to do some studying and this fit the bill perfectly. Even with unexpected snow it wasn't a problem going down the dirt road and up the driveway. The apartment was spotless, although a little chilly the first day. The heat hadn't been on very long but the gas fireplace warmed it up nicely! With that being said, if you rent in the winter, bring your slippers...the floor is cold, socks aren't enough. The apartment is over a garage!!

All in all it was a great rental! And would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you. Everyone's temperature liking is different. We leave it set at 65 so not to waste heat & allow guests to regulate the thermometer themselves once there. It does warm up quickly with the gas corner stove. We have bamboo floors so like wood floors they are colder than carpet. But wood is so much nicer & easier to keep clean. It is very peaceful & quite as Trisha remarks. We don't use the garage when guests are here & it was built with extra floor boarding for sound proofing. We've never had any complaints.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful trip, loved the suite it was private and had its own entrance. The studio itself was lovely and so was the view. Cindi and Brett were kind and helpful. I loved that there were many books and some games in the studio. A great place to escape to if you want something quiet and detached.

Weekend at Craftsmen Craft Fair, Mt Sunapee Resort, New Hampshire

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were as stated on VRBO website and more. All the comforts of home comfortable bed, loads of room, nicely decorated, very quiet and near points of interest. Cindi and Brett were in the main home available and friendly.

We would definitely stay again and refer our friends to stay at this lovely setting

Enjoyable area to explore

  • 4 of 5

The studio was comfortable, clean and quiet. Cindi and Brett were great hosts-available if needed. They greeted us when we arrived and gave us some advice on dining and outdoor adventures and put the ac in the window which we needed one night.

We rode our mountain bikes on the Sugar River Trial which was beautiful, but the trail had some sandy spots that made it very difficult to pedal. There were several ATV's on the trail also which was fine except when they came by and kicked up a lot of dust.

We also did a 2-mile climb to the summit of Mt. Sunapee which was a great trail but difficult if you are not in decent shape. The view at the summit was beautiful. You could also take a ski lift to the top and walk down the mountain. The Adventure Park was also open with other cool stuff to try especially for families.

The State Beach also rents kayaks/canoes for an hour or a half day starting Memorial Day weekend.

Flying Goose had great nachos and my husband loved the beer brewed on site. They have a solar-powered brewery on site that we would have loved to have checked out but Brewer works weekdays only.

Pizza at Bubba's was good - wood fired pizza oven. Grab a pizza to go and find a spot across the street overlooking the lake.

Sanctuary Farm Ice Cream was delicious - fun place to hang out with kids. Animals to pet, etc.

Mill Stone on Main St. had delicious food, drinks and excellent service. French Dip was delicious.

Sunapee Harbor was quaint with shops and small restaurants. Preservation Center was worth a visit.

Great studio, perfect for 2-4 people, very friendly owners

  • 4 of 5

The studio is perfect for 2-4 people - huge, well-stocked, with large windows overlooking woods, a large deck & private entry. Conveniently located near Mt. Sunapee Ski Resort. Also, bunch of convenience stores & super markets nearby or on the way close-by. Cindi & Brett are very friendly & accommodating. When I forgot to buy eggs on my way, Cindi readily provided their own farm-grown, organic eggs. We will definitely come back and I highly recommended Cindi-Brett's Studio.
