Destination guide

Hilltop views and glistening lakes

Perched on a hilltop along Route 114, the pretty little town of New London is squeezed between Lake Sunapee to the west and Pleasant Lake to the east, the two biggest draws to the area. If you stay in a New London vacation rental, you could be finding yourself whiling away afternoons on the sandy shores of the lake, occasionally paddling down at the water's edge for a refreshing dip. Alternatively, you could lace up your boots to walk the forested backcountry trails that wind up through nearby Mount Sunapee or Mount Kearsarge for picture-perfect summit views.

Things to do

The oldest playhouse in New Hampshire

If you're staying in a New London vacation rental during summer, you won't want to miss the New London Barn Playhouse. Housed in an early 19th-century wooden barn, it's the longest running summer playhouse in the state and has a revolving list of excellent productions which change every 2 weeks or so. Drive north and you'll find the town of Hanover whose Hood Museum of Art houses an extraordinarily large collection of artifacts and works of art including some from Picasso. Afterwards, you could visit the 12,000-square-foot Prospect Hill Antiques barn to dig around for a bargain.


Bring the kids for bags of fun

There's a ton of things to do within a short drive of your New London vacation rental, particularly if you bring the kids. During the summer, you can spend your days with the family mastering your minigolf skills or sliding through the forests on zip lines. If you've brought your clubs, you can practice your swing on the challenging 18-hole course nearby. The mountain cliffsides lend themselves nicely to rock climbing and are a great place to learn the sport. As winter creeps in, the flurries of snow turn the mountains into a playground for skiers and snowboarders.


Open in all seasons

This part of New Hampshire is truly a year-round destination. In spring, you'll find New London vacation rentals wonderfully peaceful, with crisp alpine air and few other travelers on the trails. Summer sees the biggest influx of vacationers, but if you like long, hot days near the lake, this is the time to come. Just be sure to book up early. The number of visitors drops off again in fall and the forests burst into myriad colors as the leaves turn, before the snowy festive season arrives and everyone begins to dust off the skis, ready to hit the slopes.

Natural features

Wildlife and backyard critters

If spotting wildlife is important to your vacations, you've come to the right place. From your New London vacation rental, you can easily reach Mount and Lake Sunapee, both of which have long been known for their abundance of species. As well as the common backyard creatures like foxes and squirrels, there are more elusive animals slinking around the mountain ridges and banks of the lake. You may very well spot a bobcat or 2, as well as a large moose ambling through the woods or marshlands. Hiking reveals some beautiful birdlife, particularly in the mornings.
