Newbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Our cottage is a great family getaway. Highlights are the flat lawn, shallow beach, and a panoramic view of the lake. There are two kayaks, a sailboat, canoe, and paddle-boat. There's ping pong in the garage and room for badminton or croquet in the yard. If you bring or rent a boat, we have a mooring right off the beach and plenty of flat parking for the trailer. It's a single story building with just a few steps in and out, so great for little kids or elderly guests.
The winterized cottage features a cozy living room with fireplace and TV, and a dining area that has a great view of the yard and lake. There are six beds in three bedrooms, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a couch on the enclosed porch providing plenty of sleeping options. One bathroom has a tub and shower and there's unlimited hot water. The half bath means there's never a line for the toilet. The kitchen is well equipped, including a dishwasher, but for those looking for a break there are great restaurants and take-out places w/in 15 mins.
We'd love to share the Sunapee experience with you. Please contact Michelle for details. She's with Sunapee Getaways and makes sure questions, contracts, and any problems are handled quickly and professionally.
Several neighbors also rent to families, so there are often many children around. Some people rent multiple cottages to enable multi-family vacations. Contact us if you'd like contact information on adjacent or nearby cottages.

We are a family of four; Chris, Bridget, Ian(10) and Sean(8). We bought the cottage in the fall of 2007 because Chris had vacationed on this beach all his life and couldn't resist the opportunity. Now, in addition to sailing and swimming in summer, we're discovering hiking, sledding, skiiing, even ice sailing in the 'off' season. There's always something fun to do outdoors! If you have to stay indoors, it is nice and cozy with a great view.
Lake Sunapee is under two hours from Boston, yet far enough north that there's always snow in winter. Traffic is almost always a breeze.
The beach is unique because it is shallow with a clean sandy bottom with a very gradual slope to deeper water. It is a great place to learn to swim or sail. The north-facing view offers a beatiful panorama and relative to many NE lakes, Sunapee is very quiet.
The property has a flat grassy yard which is unusual for lakefront properties and ensures that kids have room to play. The cottage is one story with just a few steps in and out, making it great for little kids or elderly guests.
We're less than two hours from Boston too, so our hope is that families will rent for a week in the summer and then come up for a few weekends or a ski week in the winter.
One final feature worth mentioning is that there are five cottages on this beach that can be rented in the summer, making this a great location to organize a vacation for multiple households.
