Overview

Newbury House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

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; full-size canoe, one-person kayak and life jackets provided with the house. You also have access to the homeowner's association private sandy beach, basketball court, tennis courts and newly updated playground.

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.

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 loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented vacation homes in many different areas for years. He and I agreed this is one of our favorites. Everything was spotless, comfortable and many considerate touches. We enjoyed the pond and I was thrilled to catch my first fish. We had a great time!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute find ! One of the best cottages I've stayed in , and I've stayed in a lot. The house has a lovely atmosphere and is set in an idyllic location. It was well equipped , beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean . The wifi was fast and could even be used sitting down by the pond. We travelled all the way from England to stay here, and would definitely do it again. Many thanks to the owner MaryBeth.

2nd stay just as great as 1st time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental 2 years ago for a week and came back for a 2nd time this year. Chalk Pond is very quiet & peaceful. The house comes with a canoe and kayak that we love to use on the pond. My husband & teenage boys usually Canoe over to the beach, while I drive around to the parking area with chairs & food. There are also some nice walking trails close to the house, so that's a plus if you like hiking.

The house has everything you need to cook, and even has a bunch of things included that I wasn't expecting, such as dish detergent, laundry detergent, cleaners, trash bags, and even some toilet paper. They are all labeled for tenant's use, so you know it's o.k. to use them. There are also beach chairs, floats, coolers, and beach towels.

We really only need 2 bedrooms with the 4 of us, but my older teen likes taking over the den with futon to have his own private space.

We will probably be back again in 2 years. We like to alternate big summer trips with this smaller one close to home!

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful peaceful setting on quiet Chalk Pond. Private, very clean and neat and well appointed house. Perfect place to get away from it all, and access close by to Sunapee attractions. Though house and setting is so nice don't need to leave! House has digital TV access, along with Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc, as well as a surround sound system. Though traversing walkway from parking area down to the house, and access down to the water could be challenging for older folks. Certainly hope we can come back again next year.

Happy

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodations. Very private setting, yet stores, restaurants, etc just 15 - 20 minutes away. Lovely pond with no motors allowed was great for grandchildren. Only drawback is the long climb from waters edge to living area.

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/
