Georges Mills Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

The cottage is a wonderful south-facing, water-front vacation home located in the Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire.Renovated in 2011, it is available year round with heating and air-conditioning so you can enjoy not only the beautiful lake in the spring and summer but also terrific skiing in the winter and spectacular fall foliage in the autumn. Located on 190 acre Otter Pond, you can sit on the deck and look out on this quiet secluded lake with wonderful swimming, boating and fishing. Enjoy the sunsets over the water from the flat yard; just step over to the dock and launch the canoe, or take the two steps down into the water and swim away. With a boat launch on to Lake Sunapee at Georges Mills nearby, and Sunapee harbor just minutes away, this holiday home is close to shops, restaurants and all the other amenities that Lake Sunapee, New London and the surrounding area have to offer. It is only a 20 minute drive to Lake Sunapee Ski Resort, named the best family ski area of New England. There are hiking trails to suit all ages and abilities in the area, as well as museums and a host of other attractions.

This property, with a complete renovation newly finished in 2010, came on to the rental market for the first time in January 2011. Join our growing number of repeat renters who come back year after year to enjoyed its comfort and convenience with a queen bed in one room, a twin and two bunk beds in the second, plus a sofa bed for 2; all linens and towels included. The spacious living room, complete with French door leading out to the deck, has seating for 8 with views of the lake in two directions, and there is a large dining table that accommodates 8 or more for a family feast. There is a stove, microwave oven, fridge-freezer, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, and a dishwasher to take care of all those dirty dishes and pans if you dine in; or take advantage of the many delightful restaurants in the area to dine out. Discreetly out of view in the entrance area “mud room” are a full clothes’ washer and dryer if you need them during your vacation. And at the end of your stay, the cleaning crew will come by to do the laundry and vacuum, ready for the next visitors.

Why Iain Sim chose New Hampshire

This is a family-owned and run property. Caroline grew up living by the ocean and Iain has lots of happy memories of summers spent messing around in boats, so when this property came on the market it was irresistible. Our children and grandchildren have stayed here and they voted it a resounding success. Ideal for a family summer or winter-ski vacation, or for a couple to get away from it all and just sit by the water watching the sunsets and listening to the loons, we hope you will enjoy it too. Iain and Caroline are just a phone call away if you have any questions.

Peaceful cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

What could be better. Great spot for a family or a couple. Second bedroom has bunk beds. Main bedroom has an IKEA type platform bed. Well equipped kitchen, good TV, plenty of games & puzzles. Perfect location for sightseeing New England. Cottage is close to New London for good restaurants, shopping & ice cream. We had easy drives to Vermont, the northern NH mountains and the southern Maine coast. We climbed nearby Mt. Kearsarge & Mt Sunapee. We had a great visit & hit peak foliage, too. Wow. This was our second year at Otter Pond and hope to stay again on our next trip to New England.

Fantastic little getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and well equipped. It is simply but tastefully furnished. We went the day after Labor Day so the activity on the water was minimal. We were able to enjoy canoeing on an empty tranquil pond. The owners provided games and puzzles as well as the canoe and life jackets.They were very helpful and easy to contact. We had a great time. We are already talking about renting it again next year.

The cottage is also convenient to Quechee Gorge and the VINS Nature Center, The Shaker Museum and numerous antique stores. There are plenty of good restaurants within a reasonable drive.

The cottage is set up for year round use with central heat and a gas fireplace if your more into winter sports. Skiing is available nearby. The cottage is easy to find and close to major highways.

Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have been taking a summer vacation for the past 9 years going to a different state each year. This was the best one ever! The home was perfect. Clean, well-stocked, nicely decorated, clean, beautiful location, cute yard with beautiful flowers, clean, great dock for sipping cocktails and fishing, canoe for traveling the lake and did I mention clean? I have OCD and the Sunapee House on Otter Pond was perfect. The owners were great and very helpful. The neighbors very friendly.

The fishing was WOW. My husband caught a 16-in, 16 1/2 -in and an 18-inch big mouth bass. All off the dock and on the same day! We had several fish dinners.

We like going to antique shops and found many in the area. Concord and Lancaster have a couple really good ones. Also Quechee Gorge in VT is only about 30 min away.

We always said we would never go to the same place twice for vacation, but I would love to return to Otter Pond.

The "cottage" is actually a completely modern, immaculate and comfortable house on Otter Pond. The location is excellent and central to all of the Lake Sunapee towns. The kitchen has everything and having central air is a big plus! The owner is very helpful and responsive. I hope to rent this property again.

Great location with good transportation access and close proximity to activities and places to eat. Cozy and nicely appointed cabin with ample private back yard and pond access. Would definitely recommend and will stay there again.

A great place to spend the winter

  • 5 of 5

We had the very best time staying at the cottage on Otter Pond - Our kids ages 11 and 7 were thrilled to have their own room with bunk beds (plus one extra twin) and we stayed in the other bedroom (I believe it is a Queen bed) which had a nice view of the Pond - This cottage had everything we needed to feel at home - the spacious and beautiful kitchen had all of the things we needed to cook and dine in and the gas fireplace was very inviting after a nice day on the mountain at Mount Sunapee. The bathroom was also spacious with heated floors (what a treat!) - The hosts provided us with a lovely welcome gift of maple syrup, coffee, dark chocolate and pancake mix - what a nice touch! The owners were very pleasant and so helpful with our inquires - I bet this cottage is AWESOME in the summer as the pond is so pretty and the outside deck would be great to have dinner on. We also were so appreciative of how clean it was and the washer/dryer (right when you walk in tucked in a closet) was so convenient - we never had to bring home dirty clothes :) Very happy with out decision to stay here :)
