Perfect family retreat at the lake!

Our family was thrilled with this cottage last week! Alicia anticipated all of our needs and emailed us details prior to our stay. Upon arrival, the house was clean, cabinets were stocked with kitchen necessities, bathroom had plenty of towels & toiletries.... and the view was priceless. Our kids spent hours playing on the private dock, swimming in the wonderfully shallow water and using the numerous water toys from the shed. The multi-tiered patio was awesome for outdoor meals and our neighbors even provided a personal fireworks show on July 4th 😉 Alicia was incredibly helpful with requests & recommendations. We loved the "little blue cottage" and hope to return next summer. Thanks Alicia!

Very Nice and Scenic Place!

My family and I wanted a nice scenic place around the New London area for the weekend. We were all excited to go to Alicia’s lake house. When we reached there, it was all beyond our expectations. We all fell in love with the place and area, and regardless I recommend this spot above anything else! The place is really clean, the amenities are all present, and the host is incredible. My family and I would like to thank Alicia for accommodating us in such a manner. We are already looking forward to our next trip in the same spot!

Amazing Mountain Views

What a find!! The location is wonderful. It’s only a few minutes to the ski mountain and is direct waterfront with amazing mountain views. We loved how it was very close to Newbury Harbor (with restaurant and a convenience store). Alica was a great host and her hospitality exceeded our expectations. Everything was well thought out – from her sticky notes to point things out, welcome package and toiletry box with extras items. Not only did we find our go-to Ski House but a perfect summer spot too. We'll definitely come back this summer to take advantage of the waterfront and location!

Literally a Home Away From Home

Alicia’s place is amazing, cozy, clean, comfortable I mean I can go on and on about how great this place is. My family and I absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The place is cozy and fit my family of 6 extremely comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped with all of your cooking needs. Alicia has really thought of everything one could need, her place is literally a home away from home. Their is nearby supermarkets, gas stations and anything you pretty much need. During our stay here in winter we enjoyed skiing, tubing and a horse drawn sleigh ride. We also took a drive up to Vermont for the day. You can’t go wrong with this location.

very cozy and comfortable

Alicia’s place was very cozy and comfortable. We couldn’t have asked for a better place! Everything was extremely clean and Alicia went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make a meal. She even helped us get tickets to ski at Mt. Sunapee. Would highly recommend this place to anyone who want a quiet comfy place to stay. I’m sure the lake is great in the summer too!

Location Can't Be Beaten.

Alicia is an amazing host that will make you feel at home. She has taken care of every detail in her place, from toiletries to little snacks, to detailed instructions on how to run a pellet stove. Her house is clean, neat and very functional. The location can't be beaten. Looking forward to repeat soon!

Great Place, Great Location

We rented for MLK weekend and the place was great. Fabulous location less than 10 minutes from the slopes, right on the lake, and close to town. The place has evertything you need, including the most stocked up rental kitchen I have ever seen. Owner Alicia was responsive to any questions, and extremely accommodating.

Great experience!

My friends and I all loved the house. It was a very clean place right on a beautiful lake and only about a ten minute drive to the slopes. Will definitely be a returning customer. Highly recommended to everyone!

Beautiful and Peaceful Lake Front Home

Alicia the owner was welcoming and responsive. The property was clean, well equipped and as pictured. Spent the weekend with family and visited some local wineries. Definitely would recommend staying here.

Perfect Weekend Escape!

Alicia's place was the perfect place to escape for the weekend! It was so cozy and clean. We especially enjoyed the pellet stove and the games that were available at the house. Alicia was very quick to respond to questions and even got us discounted lift tickets! We loved that skiing was so close - Mount Sunapee was 5 minutes and we went cross-country skiing at Dexter Inn which was about 14 minutes away. I highly recommend this place and hope to return again in the summer!

Very Clean and Cozy

My two adult daughters and I had a very relaxing off-season stay at Alicia's cozy cottage. She had many amenities and thought of every detail ( baskets of toiletries, supplies, snacks, even a sound machine in the bedroom!). We particularly appreciated the information binder on the Sunapee area. All the furnishings were new and updated and very comfortable. We cooked several meals and found the kitchen well-equipped. It was very chilly the first day we were there and found our favorite spot was on the sun porch with a nice electric heater. The large TV was great as well as the extensive board game selection. The very best part however, was the beautiful view overlooking the lake! If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this cottage is the place to go!

Quiet & Cozy

There's nothing better than feeling welcome and comfortable the moment you enter a home and that's what Alicia and her Sunapee cottage did for me and my family. As others have mentioned, there's no shortage of supplies at the ready (fresh towels, bottled water, hand soaps, etc.) - the little things that are too often overlooked when guests arrive - are thoughtfully available or noted where you'd expect to find them. The layout with two bed in a shared room upstairs made for great nights' sleep for our boys as did the very quiet neighborhood - only the sound of the wind blowing through the trees was ever present when we left for the day(s). Having spent five winter nights at Alicia's lovely cottage, I can assure you that the forced hot air is more than up for any challenge. And, to that midwinter end, the location is prime for getting to the mountain on-time for ski lessons and lifts opening. In short, it is the perfect size for a young family of four & we look forward to returning!

Gorgeous Home and Location

Gorgeous home and location, and awesome host! Alicia was beyond helpful and thoughtful - she reached out about events going on during our stay, placed notes and tips around the home, provided snacks and toiletries, and always got back super quick. 100% recommend.

Learn More About Lake Sunapee

Lake Sunapee is a 4100-acre glacial lake located in central New Hampshire. The glistening waters stretch over 10 miles from Georges Mills Harbor to Newbury Harbor. Early conservation efforts have resulted in generous stretches of shoreline forever protected from development. The forward-thinking Lake Sunapee Protective Association has been encouraging stewardship of the Class A waters since 1898.

Local treasures include The Fells- a historic estate and gardens offering a wide-range of cultural and environmental programs for all ages on Lake Sunapee’s eastern shore.  Mt. Sunapee rises 2700′ and offers over 230 skiable acres on the south shore.

In summer antique Chris-Craft boats ply the waters. Sunapee Harbor is a favorite gathering spot for a kale salad, a game of checkers on the green or a possible Steven Tyler sighting.

In the autumn plan to hike some of the 75 miles of interconnected greenbelt trails – or take a yoga class on top of Mt. Sunapee.

Winter brings kite sailers and skaters and bonfires at the State Beach. In springtime, the Eagles soar low and the loons arrive.

If you ever tire of the lake – the New London village is a 5-minute drive offering great shopping and summer theater. Dartmouth College is 20 minutes north. Manchester/Boston Airport is 45 minutes south. Lake Sunapee is a 90-minute easy drive to Downtown Boston.

Lake Sunapee History

Lake Sunapee was formed around 11,000 years ago when glaciers left huge rocks all around the wooded areas once the ice melted. The Native Americans have been said to have named the lake calling it Soo-Nipi because of the geese that fly overhead when they are migrating south. In addition, Lake Sunapee is also shaped like a goose flying.

After the B&M Railroad extended into Newbury, Lake Sunapee became a common vacation spot prior to cars being manufactured. To handle the crowd of new people, there was a steamboat built for the lake. The ships would bring people from the southern part of the lake to the area where the cottages and hotels were.

MV Kearsarge was manufactured in 1897 at 70 feet long and was able to carry 250 passengers. It would set sail every day in the summer. Later, in 1965, the MV Mount Sunapee was launched. It was 50 feet long and does passenger cruises in the summer.

Mount Sunapee History

In 1909, summer resident Herbert Welsh asked area residents to help save Mount Sunapee from lumbering operations. Through his efforts and the Society for Protection of New Hampshire Forests, 656 acres were acquired. This included the summit, Lake Solitude and almost the entire north side. By 1934, the Society has acquired 1,185 acres on the mountain, which was turned over to the State of New Hampshire for a state park in 1948. On December 26, 1948 Mount Sunapee opened with the 3,300 foot North Peak single chair, three trails, two rope tows and the North Peak Lodge.
