The cottage is a wonderful south-facing, water-front vacation home located in the Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire. Newly renovated, it is available year round with heating and air-conditioning so you can enjoy not only the beautiful lake in the spring and summer but also terrific skiing in the winter and spectacular fall foliage in the autumn. Located on 190 acre Otter Pond, you can sit on the deck and look out on this quiet secluded lake with wonderful swimming, boating and fishing. Enjoy the sunsets over the water from the flat yard; just step over to the dock and launch the canoe, or take the two steps down into the water and swim away. With a boat launch on to Lake Sunapee at Georges Mills nearby, and Sunapee harbor just minutes away, this holiday home is close to shops, restaurants and all the other amenities that Lake Sunapee, New London and the surrounding area have to offer. It is only a 20 minute drive to Lake Sunapee Ski Resort, named the best family ski area of New England. There are hiking trails to suit all ages and abilities in the area, as well as museums and a host of other attractions.

    This is a family-owned and run property. Caroline grew up living by the ocean and Iain has lots of happy memories of summers spent messing around in boats, so when this property came on the market it was irresistible. Our children and grandchildren have stayed here and they voted it a resounding success. Ideal for a family summer or winter-ski vacation, or for a couple to get away from it all and just sit by the water watching the sunsets and listening to the loons, we hope you will enjoy it too. Iain and Caroline are just a phone call away if you have any questions.

Exactly as described!

Finally a rental cottage that is exactly as described. Very clean and well equipped with all the essentials. Perfect for my family of four (two girls 15 and 17). The owner was pleasant and readily available with any questions and concerns, (the accent was a plus). I highly recommend a walk down to Sunapee Harbor and a trip to The Flying Goose for the bourbon tips.

Perfect ski rental

We had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. It fit our family of 5 perfectly, and was in beautiful shape. Recently renovated, with a great kitchen, and beautiful living room looking over Otter Pond. It was only a few minutes from Mt Sunapee, and was a great place for us to come back and relax with the gas fire after a day on the slopes. We would highly recommend it!
