Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: This home is a respite we enjoy with our children.

Why the Owner Chose North Sutton, Sutton, NH, USA:
This area remains a rare and unspoiled retreat from our hectic lives. The area boasts pristine lake waters and beautiful mountain vistas. Activities abound all year long from beaching to foliage watching to skiing and so much more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We came to this area for skiing and fell in love with the summers, with all the lakes and mountains have to offer. Lake Kezar, Lake Pleasant and Lake Sunapee are amazing boating and fishing areas! The hiking and trail running are great, especially Mt. Kearsage. The skiing at Sunapee is outstanding and each summer is enchanting!
