About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy a relaxing vacation aboard a rare, charming three bedroom boathouse on pristine Lake Sunapee. You are actually in a house that sits on piers in Lake Sunapee. There's only a few steps down to the house and deck from where you tie up your boat so it's easily accessible for all. Expansive permanent docks allow you to take only two steps out your door to be relaxing waterfront or enjoying a leisurely boat ride. We have installed wireless internet so you can work on your computer right on your private waterfront deck. Home includes master bedroom with a queen bed and bath on main floor where the lake waves below will lull you to sleep. Upstairs there are two additional bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two double beds.

Nice level lot behind boathouse with fire pit and lots of room for kids to play. Kayaks and paddle boat available for guests to explore Lake Sunapee free of charge. Additional newly completed apartment over garage may be rented for additional guests.

Walk to stores, restaurants, hiking trails, ice cream stand and band concerts in Newbury Harbor. Lots of room for extra cars, boats and boat trailer on property. Great setups for mooring or docking your boat(s) alongside your large private waterside deck.

About Sheila or Carey Demers

We enjoy our property on Lake Sunapee. We own 2 boathouses and rent one of them to guests during the summer months. We take care of the property ourselves to give guests a truly special vacation experience.

Sheila or Carey Demers purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Sheila or Carey Demers chose Lake Sunapee Area

We enjoy spending time on Lake Sunapee during all seasons. We enjoy boating and water sports in the summer and skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Fall is beautiful to hike and take foliage rides throughout the mountains.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is right on the water and only a few steps down from the parking area. No roads or stairs to deal with to get to the waterfront. Great for those with mobility concerns. Level flat landscape perfect for small families or seniors.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (mom,dad,three teen boys),my mother and our two dogs had a wonderful week here! The owners welcomed Us and helped us with whatever we needed. There was plenty of parking and a boat ramp nearby. We moored our boat on the dock right out the back door. The house was clean and rustic. This vacation was truly about the lake! Wake boarding,water skiing,tubing, sight seeing and dining on the water! There is always something to do!I would recommend this house for families with older kids due to being right on the water. Great vacation!

Beautiful location directly on the water surrounded by mountains.Fishing,swimming,boating,kayaking,hiking, this place has it all! Not fancy,a little rustic,but comfortable. Close to amenities and Route 103 so there is some traffic noise. We just spent a month there and don't know where the time went,we were not ready to leave. The owners were great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed.

Great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I enjoyed this beautiful lake front home for a long weekend. The house was amazing. Beautiful lake views, great location and plenty of room. Reading and coffee on the deck overlooking the lake was the icing on the cake for this getaway. We will be back!

Lake escape

  • 5 of 5

The boathouse was more than we had hoped for, and so was the area. The house is charming, and the game room was a great back up--though we spent most of our time on the deck. The kayaking was wonderful, and there are challenging hiking trails up Mount Sunapee a stone's throw from the same deck. We are so lucky to have found this home-away-from-home, and are grateful for the week we had.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great gifts you left for us including the home made mead and your creative painting of the view across the lake. We'll place it in the boathouse for our guests to enjoy as they relax.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely amazing. There is a ton of stuff to do. I even jumped in the water today and the temperature was about 34 degrees. I had a great time here. I might be biased because I like to do high adrenaline sports.

We had an absolutely wond...

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week at this boathouse in August 07. The lake is right there, which is what we loved. If you enjoy being ON the water, you will enjoy this spot. We put our boat in at the beginning of the week and didn't worry about taking it out until the end of our stay. Tied right up next to the boathouse. Kitchen was well equipped for our teenagers and their appetites and everyting worked and was clean! The owners could not have been more accomodating, helpful, and friendly. It was a perfect week and we can not wait to go back!
