About Doreen Brandolini
This home was built by my father in 2003, who lovingly cared for the perennial gardens, built the arched arbors over the walkways, and hand braided all of the rugs in the home. We inherited it from him when he passed away in 2013, and since we live only a mile away, are now renting it out. Over the years our children spent many hours fishing in front of the house, and all of my father's visitors have remarked that this truly is a slice of heaven. He named the house 'Pop's Place', and it's a special place that you're sure to love!
Doreen Brandolini purchased this House in 2013

Beautiful log cabin with all the comforts of home.
We enjoyed every minute of our time spent at Pop's Place. The location on Otter Pond is amazing as is the fishing. Doreen and John were very gracious hosts and we will definitely be back again next year.
Lisa--So glad that you and John enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Relaxing, convenient, and beautiful!
We had a great stay at Pops Place! I only wish we could have stayed longer. A beautiful home and it was so relaxing to be right on such a peaceful pond. We loved it.
Very lovely a wonderful property
A very peaceful neighborhood. A wonderful lake just to sit by and relax. Within miles of lake sunapee harbor. A lovely little harbor. The owners are very proud of the home and leave a wonderful tribute to Their Dad.
Cottage was clean, well maintained, and everything we needed was provided. Location is convenient to groceries, gas, boat cruise, and restaurants. Otter Pond has abundant variety of fish. We were able to fish from dock or rowboat which was provided. The pond was peaceful and beautiful. Firepit was nice to have for marshmallows in the evening. The whole area around Sunapee Lake is very beautiful and people are friendly and helpful.
Had a fantastic time in this gorgeous place.
Everything about it was just how we would have wanted it.
Beautiful, clean, comfortable
We spent a week at Pop's place. The first couple of days we invited family to visit. Everyone loved the home. The weather was great! We rented a speed boat one day and a pontoon boat from the Marina the next day. Lake Sunapee is beautiful and clean and everyone loved it. There is so much to do in the area. My husband and I spent the second half of the week alone and took time to explore the area, fish of the dock at Pop's place and just relax in the comfy cottage. The owners, Doreen and her husband were very nice and were available to help out or answer any questions if necessary. Overall we totally enjoyed our stay! We def. hope to be back!
