About Doreen Brandolini
This home was built by my father in 2003, who lovingly cared for the perennial gardens, built the arched arbors over the walkways, and hand braided all of the rugs in the home. We inherited it from him when he passed away in 2013, and since we live only a mile away, are now renting it out. Over the years our children spent many hours fishing in front of the house, and all of my father's visitors have remarked that this truly is a slice of heaven. He named the house 'Pop's Place', and it's a special place that you're sure to love!
Doreen Brandolini purchased this House in 2013
Lovely cottage with amazing deck, gracious hosts!
This cottage was a great find. It was extremely clean and well-appointed, and the hosts were wonderful to deal with. The covered deck was a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee on warmer mornings. Bedrooms were comfortable and the common spaces were great. The board game cupboard was a big hit with the kids. Excellent location for day trip adventures- we enjoyed the fall colours, but it would be great any time of year. We would return in a heartbeat!
Julia--so glad that you and your family enjoyed your vacation and that the cottage met your needs. Hope to see you again in the future!

Very nice cabin directly on the lake. Super clean and equipped with everything you need. Very comfortable beds with nice linens. Just bring your suitcase!
Up-graded cabin on a peaceful New Hampshire pond....
A very neat and fully stocked house, no need to run to store for the often forgotten items. There is a general store a 15-minute walk away too. The water perfect temp. for swimming (waterfront might not work for young children). We had some visitors, everyone raved and happily settled in on the porch. The house was well-built and carefully maintained. It was a big step above what one could expect in a cottage rental. We had a fabulous week!!!
The Lake Sunapee area is full of things to to...summer theatre, good restaurants, shopping...our new vacation spot.
Relaxing, convenient, and beautiful!
We had a great stay at Pops Place! I only wish we could have stayed longer. A beautiful home and it was so relaxing to be right on such a peaceful pond. We loved it.
Very lovely a wonderful property
A very peaceful neighborhood. A wonderful lake just to sit by and relax. Within miles of lake sunapee harbor. A lovely little harbor. The owners are very proud of the home and leave a wonderful tribute to Their Dad.
Cottage was clean, well maintained, and everything we needed was provided. Location is convenient to groceries, gas, boat cruise, and restaurants. Otter Pond has abundant variety of fish. We were able to fish from dock or rowboat which was provided. The pond was peaceful and beautiful. Firepit was nice to have for marshmallows in the evening. The whole area around Sunapee Lake is very beautiful and people are friendly and helpful.
Lakefront home located 15 minutes from Mt. Sunapee Ski Area. Enjoy hiking the many mountains within minutes of the house, and spend a delightful summer evening watching live theater at the historic New London Barn Playhouse. A beautiful 18 hole golf course is within 10 minutes of the house. A fitness center, located on the campus of Colby Sawyer College, is a quick 10 minute drive from the house, and offers daily or monthly memberships. During the summer months, Mt.
