Why Patricia Freeman chose Lake Sunapee Area

With a 21 year history of vacationing in the Sunapee area with family and friends it only made sense to find a home in the area. My children learned to ski and grew up skiing with the alpine ski team at Mount Sunapee. Summering at the lake was equally enjoyable. Starting with the early days of digging in the sand to the later days of boating and water skiing. There was always something to do-even on rainy days. Sunapee was the perfect spot to get away to, reconnect with family and friends and simply relax. New London provides a peaceful relaxing area but somehow you are never bored!

Great place for our family. Big backyard available for baseball games. Grilled out twice. Close to town and grocery store. Worked great for a fun-filled family week.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

For the past two summers I have spent the month of August at The Little Sunapee Cottage. Whether sitting in front of the stone fireplace or reading a book on the screened porch, this delightfully decorated is a joy for families and their guests. Being in the town of New London with mountains and lakes all around makes this the ideal spot for family vacations

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Little Sunapee Cottage. Patricia could not have been a better host. Before our arrival and after she answered every question we had and solved any issue that came up- including helping us find great babysitters so that the adults could have a few fun nights out! The location is great. Bucklin Beach is a great place to swim and play and is a two minute drive down the hill. Downtown New London (and Hanafords, a great grocery store) are also two minute drives in opposite directions. The house is comfy and has an enormous back yard and a wonderful screened in porch where we spent hours. It's also possible to see many, many stars from the yard which was a treat.

Great get-away with the kids!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two kids stayed at this house over the summer. What a great vacation getaway! The location was perfect: 2 minutes down to the private town beach on Little Sunapee, which has restrooms, a playground and shade area; 2 minutes into New London to great restaurants, grocery store, etc. Although it is on Rt. 114, the house is set back from the road and traffic noise was minimal.

The house was very well-stocked, especially the kitchen. Unlike most vacation rentals that have flimsy cookware and dull knives, this kitchen has sturdy pots and pans and nice cutlery. It was also helpful to have some basics like salt, pepper, spices and oil already on hand. The stackable washer/dryer was great to have on hand and there was laundry soap available.

When we weren't on the lake, we spent quite a bit of time on the screened-in porch, relaxing and playing the board games that were available.

I would highly recommend this property - it's not fancy, but has everything you need for a nice vacation in New Hampshire.

Perfect Summer Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Little Sunapee Cottage is a perfect place to relax...just minutes from the beach...and from coffee and ice cream in the quaint town of New London. The cottage was extremely clean and stocked with everything you could dream of needing...from every kitchen utensil, to games, books, and beach towels. Sitting on the screened-in porch was the ideal end to every day. Patricia is an extremely gracious host. We hope to visit again next summer.

Historical New England home, quiet and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great vacation here last year. With 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, there was plenty of room for our family of 5. The house was immaculate and truly turn key. It was stocked with everything to get us started and had plenty of beach towels and supplies as well as games, puzzles and books and even a fan for every bedroom for the warm summer nights. And for those that don't totally want to get away--wifi and a dvd player also.The only drawback was a very small shower downstairs and a gorgeous claw foot tub (but no shower) upstairs. I think that the owner was considering installing a shower extension upstairs so that might be resolved now and would not stop us from going back.

The location is great--Just up the hill from Bucklin Beach(great place to watch the sunset) and just a couple of minutes drive to all New London shops, restaurants and amenities.

The kids loved the large front and back yard to play in and we enjoyed both the back porch and large front screened porch for relaxing and grilling.

It was a great spot and a reasonable price. I highly recommend it and would stay again!
