There’s a Location and Activity for Everyone in the Lake Sunapee Area
While it might seem that most of the excitement of the Lake Sunapee Area would center around the fifth-largest lake in New Hampshire, this region is actually overflowing with recreational pursuits both along the lake’s shimmering shores and away from the waterfront.
If the clean, clear waters of Lake Sunapee are bound to be your main attraction, then you simply cannot go wrong in a Sunapee vacation rental. Resting along the western shore and located just steps away from the a day of boating, kayaking, fishing and swimming on this beautiful body of water, there is no better jumping off point for a getaway filled with peace and relaxation on the waterfront.
However, the convenience and unbeatable location of Newbury vacation rentals mean you can fill your itinerary with a wider array of activities. Whether you want to swim at Mount Sunapee State Park Beach, hike to the summit of Mount Sunapee, explore the John Hay National Wildlife Refuge (and “The Fells”), or ride the gondola at the Mt. Sunapee Resort (also the area’s best winter spot), this town has everything you need for an outdoor-oriented adventure you will never forget.
Although these are certainly the most popular options directly on the lake, there is plenty of natural beauty waiting a few miles away in a charming Washington. As the home of Pillsbury State Park, an essential link in the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and wildlife viewing are all at your fingertips in a primitive and untamed setting.
Combining the serenity of an off the beaten path destination with the entertainment of the waterfront, Blaisdell Lake and Crescent Lake vacation rentals are two other Lake Sunapee Area options to consider. In addition to offering all of your favorite water sports in a quiet and peaceful environment away from the crowds, Crescent Lake is also just minutes away from Newport and the 18-hole course at the Newport Golf Club.
