Kick back and relax in a waterfront chalet that combines cottage charm and modern amenities. Built in 2004, the house is on the sunny northern side of Chalk Pond, a pristine, 21-acre lake in Newbury, NH. Enjoy the waterside from your private dock with fishing (NH license required age 16+) and swimming, or canoe/kayak over to the tiny island in the middle of the Pond. No powered craft are allowed on Chalk Pond; one full-size canoe, two single kayaks and life jackets are provided with the house. You also have access to the homeowner's association private sandy beach, basketball court, tennis courts and newly updated playground.
Would you like a walk-through, VIDEO tour of the house and waterfront? From our listing's main page and main photo, house exterior front, click on the left arrow to see the video OR click on the right arrow and scroll through the photos to the end. (I apologize in advance for my shaky camera work.)
From our front door, it's a five minute walk to the Stoney Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can hike two different trails through a beautiful 362-acre preserve. Watch for moose, deer, flying squirrels, even porcupines! Take a 15-minute drive to Mt. Sunapee Harbor, Mt. Sunapee Ski Resort, or the quaint town of New London which has great shopping, restaurants and a summer stock theatre.
The master bedroom has a queen bed and private deck, the second bedroom has one twin and one full bed. The downstairs den has a TV and queen futon. The full deck off the living room offers a tranquil view of the water and features deck furniture and a gas grill. Newly finished walk-out basement has two futon chairs and TV with DirecTV satellite; great place for kids and teens to hang out!
Wood paneling, hand-painted stencils, wall quilts and country decor give the house a comfortable, rustic feel. It's scrupulously clean and complimented by modern conveniences not all cottages have: completely equipped kitchen, dishwasher, two full baths, full-sized washer and dryer and Wi-Fi access.

From warm summer days and cool summer nights to spectacular fall foliage and crystal clear water, let our home at Chalk Pond be your choice for a restful getaway.

We had the best week ever! The house had everything we needed as far as kitchen items, linens, towels (including beach towels!), and cleaning supplies. The views from the decks were beautiful and a great place to have your morning beverage. A family of ducks would make its way back and forth a few times a day, adding a bit of wildlife to the view. The pond was great for kayaking and canoeing (provided) - it is a plus that there are no motorized boats allowed on the pond. Marybeth was a super host - from warning me about pesky New England black flies ahead of time to working with temperamental e-mails getting a last-minute reservation complete. I would definitely look for this house again should the need arise.
Frances was a great tenant, treated our home as if it were her own, left the house super-clean. Lovely to talk with, a pleasure to have as a tenant. Come back any time!
Excellent home in Newbury NH
Wonderful home complete with all the amenities. Marybeth was great to deal with. The location was perfect for us as well.
First allow me to express my sincere gratitude to you for offering the opportunity to enjoy your spectacular "Home-Away" on Chalk Pond.
We felt as though we were being welcomed by friends from the moment we first opened the door. The house is lovely and immaculate and the amenities were all we could have asked for, from the comfy beds to the abundantly stocked kitchen tools and outdoor offerings. My husband, John, really enjoyed the gas grill on the balcony and we had a lovely pre-wedding dinner for the bride and groom and a few friends. Great steaks!! We were all impressed that you provide so much so nicely!
And of course, the views!!! Both decks were wonderful and within moments of bringing in our bags and taking a walk through, I was on the end of the dock with my feet in the water... so serene and beautiful. We were blessed to have been there and without question I am already longing to visit again.
Peaceful, Clean and Comfortable!
This property at Chalk Pond is immaculate, extremely well maintained and organized. It is a wonderful peaceful place, a true get away to enjoy the beautiful setting by kayaking or canoeing on the pond, taking walks around the pond, or just hanging out on the dock. Kitchen has everything one needs for a week's stay, and entertainment center has all the streaming services that one may want. Very hard to leave once the week comes to an end!. The owner is extremely responsive, communicative, and friendly. The cottage is just up the road from quaint Newbury Harbor, where Bubba's Restaurant offers nice fare with a great view of Lake Sunapee. Its also a short ride to New London where there are several restaurants to check out. The one and only (minor) comment is that to get the kayaks or canoe into the water (other than climbing down into them from the dock which can be difficult for some folks), one has to carry them over a muddy/rooty area by the side of the dock which can be slippery. Would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a quiet peaceful get away in a neat, clean well organized setting.
Charmed on chalk pond
This cottage is lovely. Very clean and comfortable, with a view of the Pond and two decks on which to take in the view. We enjoyed kayaking on the Pond and walks around it. A perfect place to relax in a well equipped cottage.
A wonderful place to stay!
It is a lovely home right on the water. It had everything we needed. It was so nice to be able to look out on Chalk pond from the several balconies. Having access to the boats and boards was a real treat! Our boys especially enjoyed being able to paddle over to the beach. It was also close to Sunapee's attractions. The owners were so helpful leading up to our stay and communication was easy and so friendly!
Shannon was a wonderful guest, 5 of 5 stars. Great communication, superclean and generously picked up a new kayak paddle I ordered to replace one that had gone missing. Love to have her return any time!
To legally fish on Chalk Pond (or pretty much anywhere in NH), people 16 years and old need a state-issued fishing permit, available online or at a local tackle shop The Tackle Shack (603) 763-5508 right in Newbury. Link to NH State site with more information:https://www.nhfishandgame.com/
