    Pretty Newbury has a lot to offer

    The little town of Newbury lies on the southern tip of Lake Sunapee, close to the Mount Sunapee State Park beach. Though the white clapboard houses are certainly pretty, the lakeside and water activities are the biggest draws for vacationers. If you stay in a Newbury vacation rental, you can spend your days working on your tan on the little beach, punctuated by dips in the refreshingly cool lake. If you're not a beach dweller, you can lace up your boots and head for the hills to hike the trails or whizz down the zip lines.

    No shortage of activities in Newbury

    The forested backcountry trails that work their way around Mount Sunapee and the lake are popular through every season. Some are gentle walks open to all, while others are decidedly more challenging as they wind up to the ridge of the mountain. If you like golf, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the championship-length 18-hole course nearby. For a little fun, if you book a Newbury vacation rental at the right time, you can race down Mount Sunapee on cardboard sleds at the annual wacky race. As winter creeps in, activities including ice skating and snowmobiling are popular.

    Country estates and Picasso

    At the Fells Historic Estate & Garden, you can step back in time and see a glimpse of life in the 19th century. Open between June and September, you can join one of the daily historic tours to discover the estate house and rock gardens that have changed little over the last century. A little further north, a visit to the Hood Museum of Art in Hanover is well worth the effort. Here, you can see over 65,000 artifacts and works of art by the likes of Picasso, Rembrandt and Goya.

    There's never a bad time to visit

    There really is no bad time to visit Newbury. After the thaws of winter, the wildflower blooms and the gloriously sunny weather makes spring a perfect time to book a Newbury vacation rental. In the summer, you can sip on homemade lemonade while you dig your toes into the sandy beaches around the lake. The summer break crowds subside during fall and the countryside comes alive with beautiful autumnal colors. The snowy flurries of winter carpet the landscape, transforming it into a playground for cross-country skiers and skaters.

    Spot moose, deer and elusive bobcats

    Mount Sunapee and Lake Sunapee have long been known as the places to go for wildlife spotting. You should drive carefully along the country roads here because it's not uncommon to spot bounding deer or solitary black bears. Even in the town, sightings of resident foxes and wild turkeys are frequent. They may be more elusive, but bobcats and coyotes are known to slink around the mountains and the lake, while plenty of bird species circle on the morning thermals while you walk the trails. Nothing will prepare you for seeing your first giant moose ambling along the water's edge.
