Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

It is hard to decide which time of year we enjoy the most at our Lake Sunapee home! In the summer we relax on the front porch watching all the activity taking place on the lake; swimming, sunning on the dock, taking out the canoe, sunfish, kayak, or two person paddle boat, tubing or water skiing. With the Mt. Sunapee State Park just over a mile away, you can be hiking, snowshoeing, or skiing/snowboarding in minutes! Once the lake is deemed solidly frozen it becomes a hub of activity with ice fishing, snowmobiling, skating and ice sailing.

About Maureen and Dwight Peterson

I grew up on this property as my parents bought it in 1969, when I was just 10 years old. The house was built in the late 1800's and came fully furnished with many of the antiques still here. My parents tore down the old cottage about twenty years ago and built the year round vacation home that my husband and I purchased in 2006. It is still considered a vacation home for our four daughters, their friends, my siblings and their families, as well as my mom and dad..

Maureen and Dwight Peterson purchased this house in 2006

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was as if we were staying at a friend's house for the week. The house itself was spacious and comfortable. We loved lake life for the week! We loved swimming, jumping off the dock and using both the paddle boat and kayak. The kids also enjoyed fishing off the dock. We loved that it was not a big "touristy" town. Very peaceful vacation!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely ski weekend at this rental. It was lovely, well stocked, close to skiing and had a beautiful view of the lake. It made us all want to visit again when it was warm to take advantage of the proximity to the water. I highly recommend this to families and anyone looking for a quiet break. The proximity to Mt. Sunapee couldn't be beat. And Maureen was a wonderful help when I had questions, I would recommend staying here to anyone. Thank you for letting us borrow your home!

Perfect for our Family; Gracious Owner

  • 5 of 5

This property is pristine, lovely, welcoming, and easily accommodates a big crowd. A screened-in porch overlooking the lake is delightful. Well-stocked kitchen. Comfortable beds.

Maureen was entirely gracious, kind, and accommodating.

We stayed for a weekend reunion of my big family of brothers and sisters. The next time we meet in NH, we will definitely stay here!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this spacious, gorgeous lake house. We were able to use the kayaks, canoes, paddle boat and the sunfish every day. When the weather was not perfect the house was close enough to shopping, movie theaters, restaurants, hiking, etc. The owner was so helpful, flexible and available when we had questions. We definitely will keep this gem on our list to rent again :)!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time here! We loved your comments in the guestbook. My nephew spent time interpreting the comment in german. (I think it was german!) I especially liked hearing that you used the sunfish. We haven't used it in so long we forgot how to set it up!

Great Experience and Would Repeat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Maureen and Dwight's.The house was charming, comfortable, as advertised.

We appreciated the owners' hospitality: they invited us to help ourselves to pantry basics, etc. And we really enjoyed having access to the boathouse and boat which we used.

The screened porch was our favorite place to spend time; we loved being right on the lake and watching all the activity, including the resident loons. Their bird calls are something I will always remember about the stay at the house.

I recommend this house to all who want a wonderful Lake Sunapee vacation.

Great Service and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for our short break in late March. Although there was a small issue with one of the bathrooms's bath tub faucet, the owner took care of it right away. She was very pleasant to work with, and she wanted to make sure that nothing bother us while we were there. We didn't get to snowboard as we originally planned due to warm weather, however we enjoyed the beautiful Lake Sunapee, and the property is just beautiful. The property itself had a lot to offer, and we enjoyed ourselves. I want to thank Maureen again for her great service and care!
