Comfortable & Quiet. Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable. Owners greeted us after our arrival & made themselves available if we needed anything. Kitchenette was a very usable space & was outfitted perfectly for us. We enjoyed our stay.

Spend a week enjoying a simpler lifestyle

  • 4 of 5

If you have always dreamed of owning a house on Lake Sunapee but can't, this is your best option. The cabin sits alone surrounded by larger personal residences. The cabin, though rustic, was squeaky clean and adequately furnished. The on-line description was exactly as stated.

It was comforting to know that the owners lived nearby. We met them the first night we arrived and they made us feel right at home/welcomed. They were very generous, polite, and friendly.

It was such a luxury to be able to walk out the back door, down the hill, and into the crystal clear lake water for a swim, to relax by the fire pit, or read a book on the deck. We also enjoyed the aerial challenge course at the Adventure Park at Mount Sunapee, the Montshire Science Museum (VT), King Arthur Flour Baking Store (VT), and the New London Barn Playhouse Children's Theatre. Good eats were to be had at Bubba's in Newbury and The School House Cafe in Warner that has pancakes 1" high and big as a skillet.

We would not hesitate to recommend this place to our family/friends or to return ourselves in the future.

Cute Lakefront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Newbury NH for 30+ years and this is my first time for my family & I staying at the Acorn Retreat, and we were pleased. It was very cute, clean & well equipped. The pictures were very accurate & the owners of the cottage are just next door. The pedal boat was an added bonus & fun for everyone. We enjoyed our stay!

Welcoming, fun, and cozy cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Acorn Retreat this summer, our whole family. The cottage is very well-kept and well stocked, they really have everything you might need. The quaint property is family owned, and it shows. The people in the neighboring cottages were completely lovely and extremely helpful, yet you absolutely get the sense of privacy and peace that you'd want. We would absolutely recommend staying here and are looking forward to returning next summer! Also, we had the best pizza of our lives from Newbury Palace Pizza which was just a short ride down the road. Our kids are still raving about it!!
