Completely furnished, 4-BR condo (sleeps up to 8), with unparalleled panoramic view of Lake Sunapee and Mt. Sunapee from LR deck and upstairs MBR deck. All appliances, digital TV, WiFi, stereo, located on fifth fairway of 100-year-old Granliden golf course. Easy access to heated pool, tennis courts, exclusive resort beach, hiking trails and skiing at Mt. Sunapee 5 miles away.
My wife and I purchased our Granliden condo in 2012, but we had owned another unit there for 30 years which we had sold in 2006. We had lived overseas in Japan for most of our adult lives, but, ever since I was a young boy, when a friend's mother brought me up to their place on Lake Sunapee, I have loved the green, the air, the scenery and atmosphere of New Hampshire. We would come back from Japan to vacation every year. I even decided to go to college there - Dartmouth College, only 30 minutes up I-89 from Sunapee. This is truly a special place.
We purchased this property because we knew and loved Granliden well, having owned a vacation place there for 30 years before we sold it in 2006. The view from our current condo is without question one of the very best in the Granliden resort - and the amenities are superb.
The view from the living room and living room deck (as well as from the MBR deck) are just spectacular - with Lake Sunapee and Mt. Sunapee presenting a dramatic panorama. With the fifth fairway of the golf course literally in front of our unit, we can step outside and play a quick nine holes. The course is almost never crowded. As an avid kayaker, Lake Sunapee is a wonderful place to let go of the cares of the world. I'm a less accomplished skier, but Mt. Sunapee has slopes for all abilities, and I go whenever I have a chance.
Granliden on Lake Sunapee is the perfect - and accessible - setting for all summer, autumn and winter activities and sports. The leaves in the autumn are spectacular in their color and variety. Hiking, boating of all kinds, swimming, golf and tennis in the summer, with some of the best skiing in New England make it an unbeatable vacation destination.
