About Rich Proto

My wife Ann and I live in Massachusetts with our two daughters. We love to travel and vacation, though its not always possible with four busy schedules. Our vacation homes in New Hampshire and Maine allow us to get away on a moments notice. We hope our guests will enjoy them as much as we do!

Rich Proto purchased this house in 2007

Why Rich Proto chose Lake Sunapee Area

On our way to see this property for the first time in August 2007, we drove up West Shore Drive past Newfound Lake and were just amazed at the beauty of the lake and surrounding area. We arrived to to see the quintessential New Hampshire cabin with its natural wood siding, beamed ceilings, knotty pine walls, country kitchen, handmade tapestries and quilts, and an artist's touch throughout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rich,



I'd just like to thank you again for the beautiful house rental. We all had so much fun, and even got to know the neighbors next door. Everything in the house was beautiful and the views were spectacular. The river across the street was definitely a bonus. After all the rain on saturday the water was flowing very fast and made some nice rapids throughout.



The house was beautiful and it would definitely be a nice place to go back to.



Thanks again!

Needs Update

  • 2 of 5

Cabin cannot sleep 13. We had 5 adults and 3 children. TV with 2 uncomfortable futons in basement so people sleeping their had to listen to TV. The only bathrooms were on 1st floor bedroom, and basement so those people were being wakened if you had to use the bathroom in the night. The 3rd floor had all beds very noisy floor and can hear everything from basement up, so we had to run fans. No cabinet space to put your food and when we arrived the grill was not clean from prior people. I gave this a two star,the cabin was clean when we arrived. I think it would be a good place for the most 7 people and get rid of bed on first floor so people can use bathroom maybe put some closet space and maybe a couch on third floor with TV so people can relax. It would be a good place if you want to hike. It is a distance from alot of places. The owner was very nice and also emailed you right back with concerns. Wish there was a barrel for recyclables . Also trash barrells should be on ground level not back of porch. Could have xtra sheet and pillow cases. A little updating would not hurt.

Nice Big Fire Pit and Great Deck for Grilling

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends had a great time around the big fire pit with plenty of wood provided for burning. The wrap-around deck was also great for grilling all day and for looking out across the mountain tops. The large dining room table had plenty of room for all of us (10) to eat our meals comfortably. I will for sure consider renting here again.

Perfect wedding weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We were up for a wedding and the cabin was perfect for us. There were 7 of us and everyone had plenty of space. We did not need the wood stove but really enjoyed the fire pit both nights. It was a short drive to the church and a little bit longer drive to the reception. All in all it was perfect!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here to celebrate our one year anniversary. We wanted to have the ability to hike and be in nature but still have some comfort and convenience to come "home" to. This could not have been more perfect!

This beautiful cabin was a cozy and peaceful escape. Being able to have a cup of coffee on the wrap around deck, and still be a short 5 minute drive from the base of a mountain with dozens of hiking trails (and more river/brook access along the way than imaginable) made this stay the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure. The cabin is clean, comfortable and welcoming. The surroundings are beautiful and serene (and the neighbors are very friendly!).

Thank you so much, Rich, for allowing us to celebrate our first anniversary in such a lovely getaway :)

comfortable/informal/spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in this house with a large family group of all ages---very spacious so we were able to sit 13(!!) to dinner comfortably one night. Lots of beds but not lot of privacy.. this is a great place for a family to have a vacation---across the street is a beautiful watering hole and the neighbors were all friendly and welcoming. we brought our dogs who also had a great time!

Kitchen is fully equipped for basic cooking although you have to provide EVERYTHING (seasonings,sugar,flour etc). Great dishwasher and washer/dryer so we could settle in. the wraparound porch is such a great place to hang out--always cool and comfortable. Although it isnt on the water it is a quick drive to the town beach and marina and many beautiful swimming holes--waterfalls/beaches/covered bridges etc.

The landlord is easy to get hold of and quite responsive. Everything was clean and comfortable but nothing fancy. We had friends visited with toddlers and it didnt feel unsafe for them either.
