About the property

4 bedroom 2 bath with Lake Sunapee access and largest dock on the lake

Lake access, close to skiing, and hiking make this the perfect getaway for any season. This home has been completely renovated over the last year.

The living room is cozy and is an open area with the kitchen and dining room. Enjoy sitting by a fire in the wood burning stove in the living area.

The home has DirectTV and Wifi availability. During football season you can enjoy the NFL Sunday Ticket and watch any game you want.

Offering 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms this home can easily accommodate a party of 8. There is a large Master Bedroom with a King Bed on the second floor. Also on the second floor is another bedroom with a Queen and a full size bed. The second floor bathroom is a 3/4 bath with a shower stall.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms. One with a full size bed and the other has a Trundle bed that turns into 2 twin size beds. There is also a full bathroom on the first floor with a bathtub.

This home offers Lake Sunapee access with a large dock area. You can swim, fish, suntan, relax and read a book, or watch the boats go by from this great vantage point. There is a launching dock for small watercraft like kayaks and row boats. We enjoy kayaking from this area whenever possible. There are steps into the water making swimming access easy so there is no need to climb rocks to get into the water here.

Mount Sunapee is 4 miles away and the Mountain always has events going on at the base lodge. You can check the calendar of events on their website to see if there is a concert, 5k mudrucker race, lobster bakes, or craftsmen fair going on during your planned stay. In the winter the Mountain offers fantastic skiing with terrain parks, challenging slopes, the new acro bag, and even winter ziplining. In the summer there is also a range of activities available at the Mountain. They offer Ziplining, off road Segway Tours, Frisbee golf, miniature golf, and more.

The views from the dock on Lake Sunapee are amazing and you could walk down and enjoy them anytime. It was an amazing night when we alked down with flashlights and watched all the shooting stars crossing the night sky. With little surrounding light the night sky can be fascinating and the kids absolutely loved seeing it.

The Fells historic home and gardens are very close by and in the summer they are a must see. The home brings you back to earlier times and the gardens are beautiful and have trails for you to hike down to the shores of Lake Sunapee.

If you are a more avid hiker there are trails all around this home that range from easy walks to more challenging climbs. The moderate hike up to sunset hill is enjoyable and can be attempted by anyone. One of the more challenging hikes is the Summit Trail that takes you from the parking lot of the ski mountain to its peak and if you want to extend that hike it connects to a trail that continues on to Kearsarge Mountain.

great 2-week stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in the house and had a wonderful time! Upon arrival, the house was very clean and smelled fresh. Linens were provided, which was very nice. Rick was helpful and very responsive through the whole booking process and even during our stay in giving recommendations for hikes and places to eat. It was a family friendly home and we loved the lake!

Great house, great location.

We had a great time at Rick's house. The house is clean, updated and well equipped. Proximity to the lake and spacious community dock were spectacular. Rick is super nice, very responsive and very helpful. We will definitely rent this property again. Thanks Rick!

Excellent & relaxing getaway!

  • 4 of 5

I had a great time this past week at Rick's lake getaway. Rick was great to work with in ensuring we could get in (sorry we got there a bit early) and enjoy our time in New Hampshire. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us, and it was a very relaxing (much needed) time spent with family. The lake was nice to swim in, and the house had everything we needed for our stay. I am looking forward to the next time we visit. Thanks Rick!

Cape Cod, Ma

Rick was extremely responsive and helpful. The house was clean and could easily sleep 10.

  • 5 of 5

The property was nice tucked away in the woods. Lake Sunapee is a stones throw away and a short walk to the dock. The house was clean and had everything you need. Including pots and pans, air mattresses, bedding, silverware, washing machine, and dryer. A couple of the bedrooms have tv's. Plenty of room for multiple families with kids. There is a huge deck outside where we spent most of our time. Great views and a very comfortable house. I can imagine the house is perfect for winter as well. Very convenient for a ski vacation. Rick was responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again.

Great stay in the Sunapee area!

  • 5 of 5

Great location to lake and Mount Sunapee ski resort!

Really cute house set back in the woods. We easily fit four couples.

Kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, etc, anything you needed to cook.

Comfortably fit our crew of 8 around both the kitchen table for meals and the living room table for games.

King suite is gorgeous, spacious, with a nice view.

Definitely would suggest staying here if you are planning to be in the area! Rick is wonderful and incredibly responsive.

My friends and I are considering a return this year!

Great ski weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

Sunapee Lake House is perfect for large family getaway ski weekend. More than usual kitchen utensils, plenty of normal stock items (hand soap, paper products...). Ricky response time is almost instantaneous. Close to lake and ski area. Thank you Ricky, from all the Browns
