About Robert Donahue

Professional finance industry veteran and teacher with two daughters. Love to ski and cycle and hike.

Robert Donahue purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Robert Donahue chose Lake Sunapee

Tm me, this is the most wonderful place in the world, and the best home in this friendly community. When I first set eyes on this house I had to have it. You will love it.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The lighting is incredible, with three picture windows allowing it to stream through the house, The study in the private upstairs loft is my favorite place. The bottom floor is wide open and fun for kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice setup. Worth every penny. We loved the peaceful location and the attractions in the surrounding area. The house was clean and had literally everything we needed. A fantastic vacation!

Fantastic stay in the woods of NH within a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Going into the home everything needed for a comfortable stay was there. The house was spacious with enough area for people to sleep comfortably. I had a fantastic time and never ran out of things to do within the area and at the home. Robert was an extreme help as well answering/returning my phone calls when he could. He made the stay just more enjoyable all around! I really was able to relax and enjoy my stay in NH. I recommend anyone to stay in this house for its affordability and location!

An incredible place to getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with a bunch of my friends to spend the weekend together. We were awestruck when we first walked into the house. Everything we could have needed (minus food) was provided in the house which made staying there very easy. The house was well taken care of before I arrived there which made it a clean place to stay. The pond down the road is amazing for families to spend the day at. The owner was easy to communicate with and always answered any questions I had which was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and I would definitely rent this house again in the future. I would choose this house over any other house!

PROS: Great space! Nice open floor plan in main area with lots of windows and high ceilings and a deck. Smells clean, no pet odor except for kid's bunk room. (Avoid if your kids have allergies) Great guy to work with. I'm sure he'll fix all the things I'll list here. He seems to fix things as soon as someone mentions them based on the other reviews. We needed the snow plow and he got back to us ASAP. The plow guy came twice, great service. The upstairs master is large with a private king bedroom and a bathroom on the top floor, plus a little reading nook. The main floor has the living room with high ceilings, a table for 6 and 2 couches. The kitchen is small and basic, but got the job done. The 2nd adult bedroom has a queen bed. The downstairs kids room has 7 twins! There is also a TV down there and a ping pong table, and a futon. Kids stay down there and you get some peace! There is no cleaning fee, so we cleaned it very well before we left. Also, pet friendly!

CONS: Some repairs were needed. A broken towel rack, light fixture hanging loose, bulbs out in bathroom, dishwasher dispenser didn't work at first, stove gave a warning alarm asking for service, smoke alarm may be missing as there was a hole with wires sticking out on the ceiling, and a large bike rack came loose and nearly fell over. The bathroom toilets were dirty and I found 6 socks, 1 shoe and 1 empty vodka bottle left from other renters. However, I would rent again and highly recommend this place! Just be willing to clean it up yourself if the last folks didn't do a stellar job. Again there is no cleaning fee and this is very fair for the price. You will love it overall, unless you're a germaphobe or have allergies :)

Owner's Response: All the repairs have been made and more. I got wifi for the house and have repainted all the rooms as well as cleaning the floors in the downstairs kids room.
