Waterfront home w/multi-level deck and private dock, 4 mins to Mount Sunapee
About Alicia Morse
Hi everyone! As a Host, I want to make your time on Lake Sunapee as enjoyable as possible. For those new to the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region, it has it all -- steam boat tours, sandbar hot spots, sailboat racing, Jet skiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, paddle boarding -- you name it. I'm happy to provide any recommendations for your stay. I'm here to answer any questions you have about the house or the area. In my free time I enjoy golfing, running and spending time on the Lake! In the winter I often ski or go snowmobiling. However, I love a night in with a great movie, pizza and a glass of wine!
Alicia Morse purchased this House in 2017
Why Alicia Morse chose Newbury
We chose the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region because Lake Sunapee's cleanliness and close proximity to Boston. Lake Sunapee is only a 90 minute drive from Boston which makes it the perfect destination to escape the bustle of the city and relax with stunning mountain views. Lake Sunapee is the 5th largest lake in the State of New Hampshire. It's far less busy than Lake Winnipesaukee, which was important to us as home owners. There's less boat traffic and the water is cleaner for swimming and water activities. The dock is 75' long and is the third largest on the lake. It's perfect for docking any motor craft. This home is a few minutes drive to Mount Sunapee Ski Resort. Mount Sunapee is a family friendly resort owned by Vail Resorts. The mountain has 66 trails spread over 230 acres of ski-able terrain.
What makes this House unique
This home is unique because of its direct waterfront with a private 75' dock. It's nestled in a sandy swimming cove that has Mountain views. The outdoor space is perfect for couples, family and friends to gather. Only 4 minutes to Mt. Sunapee - 66 trails & 20 lifts (Mt. Sunapee expansion has passed! 4 new trails, and 56 acres of skiing & high speed quad coming soon!) ½ mile to Newbury Harbor where there’s a Spa, Bubba's Restaurant, Ice Cream Window, gas station, coffee, and summer concerts. Marzelli's Deli is down the road and has delicious paninis, pasta dishes, bakery goods, espresso and pick your own candy bar. Sunapee Harbor has waterfront dining, boat tours and shops just 10 minutes away. More about the area: Lake Sunapee is a 4100-acre glacial lake located in central New Hampshire. The glistening waters stretch over 10 miles from Georges Mills Harbor to Newbury Harbor. Early conservation efforts have resulted in generous stretches of shoreline forever protected from development. The forward-thinking Lake Sunapee Protective Association has been encouraging stewardship of the Class A waters since 1898. Local treasures include The Fells- a historic estate and gardens offering a wide-range of cultural and environmental programs for all ages on Lake Sunapee’s eastern shore. Mt. Sunapee rises 2700′ and offers over 230 skiable acres on the south shore. In summer antique Chris-Craft boats ply the waters. Sunapee Harbor is a favorite gathering spot for dining, a game of checkers on the green or a possible Steven Tyler sighting. In the autumn plan to hike some of the 75 miles of interconnected greenbelt trails – or take a yoga class on top of Mt. Sunapee. Winter brings kite sailers and skaters and bonfires at the State Beach. In springtime, the Eagles soar low and the loons arrive. New London village is a 10 minute drive offering great shopping and a summer theater. Dartmouth College is 20 minutes north. Manchester/Boston Airport is a 45 minute drive.

Beautiful setting for this quaint lake front cottage. Clean, well looked after place with immediate access to a sandy beach and convenient dock. Adding Dish TV for continuous and easy watching would be a plus.
Cozy, clean, comfortable.
Great location, just a few minutes from Newbury harbor and Mt Sunapee. Fantastic dock and access to the lake, and includes kayaks, paddleboard, life jackets, and much more. Fit our family of 6 just fine. Will absolutely be going back for future visits to the lake.
Beautiful location, beautiful house.
Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All aspects of the home are well thought out to accommodate guests. The location is ideal - a place to dock a boat, a nice cove for swimming, kayaks, paddleboard, or just floating. The host, Alicia, promptly replied to questions and concerns. We loved the view!
Beautiful and Tranquil Lake Sunapee Cottage
I stayed here this past weekend with my family consisting of 8 adults. I was worried about the size of the house, but it was not a problem at all! The beds were extremely comfortable and we had amazing weather so we were outside most of the time. The dock is amazing, and the water is so clear and refreshing. We took advantage of the kayaks and the paddle board and we loved the quiet relaxing cove. The house is very updated, clean, and the kitchen and bathroom are stocked well with everything you could need. Outside we used the grill for cooking lunch and dinner and had a fire at night overlooking the water. There is a gas station, Hannaford, and even a farmers market nearby. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation right on the beautiful lake, this is the place to be! We would love to stay here again next summer.
Beautiful home in a beautiful setting
This property is phenomenal. The home is absolutely beautiful and is stocked with all the dish ware, appliances and other amenities that you need. We only needed to bring clothes from home. When we arrived, the house was spotless. The backyard has two outdoor dining areas and lounge chairs - which were great for watching the kids in the water while I got some sun. The lake itself is clean and shallow - perfect for daily swimming.
The owner - Alicia - was incredibly nice and helpful. She was also very responsive to any inquiries we had both before and during our stay. This property is well-deserving of 5 stars!
What a wonderful cottage! Such a perfect spot on the lake with ample outdoor space.
Our stay was so relaxing. The cottage was beautiful and provided so many essentials that I could have packed half of what I did. Alicia pays attention to every detail & it shows! Her communication was great and our stay was stress free. I have to ask her what mattresses she has, down to the pull out couch, as they all were so comfortable!! We are hoping to rent again next summer. A++
