Vacation home, Pleasant Lake, New London


Property Details

Updated: Sep 16, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Charming, fresh 2 bedroom, 1 ½ bath family home, located on beautiful and quiet 600 acre Pleasant Lake in New

London, New Hampshire. over 100’ of private, shared (with our other unit - see 1st photo) waterfront just steps across a quiet road, with 6x30’ dock, sandy bottom swimming area,

picnic table, and canoe.

This very recently renovated and furnished house sleeps 4-6+, including two bedrooms each with twin

beds, plus a fold-out queen-sized couch and a fold-out chair in the living area. We have 50Mb secure WiFi. The house is

insulated for spring & fall chills, with electric heat throughout, and a gas-fired "woodstove". There

is space for parking in front of the house, plus a shared two car garage for storage of your car,

bikes, water toys, kayaks, etc.

This is a superior choice for summer and fall vacations of a week or more. Pleasant Lake is pure,

safe, and quiet (no jet skis), and offers excellent swimming, boating, sailing, fishing,

waterskiing, plus ducks and loons to enjoy. Our dock sits in up to seven feet of water, has a ladder

into the water, and you may bring or locally rent a boat and keep it at the dock. The boat launch

site is a very short walk or paddle away, as is the Elkins Beach town park. The charming town of

New London is a short drive, a walk, or a bike ride away.

This home has good privacy on all sides, with its own lawn, trees, and gardens. It is only a few

steps walk across a quiet road from the water and dock. It shares the lakefront with our 1 bedroom,

1 bath cottage, which is perched at the edge of the lake on the other side of the road (visible in photo taken from the deck). That

cottage is also available at the same rates. Together, the two make an outstanding family & friends compound! If you have interest in

that cottage, or both, please inquire, or check VRBO #392684.

It was a perfect week. The place was great. Neat. Clean. Cozy. It was so nice for my wife and me to get away for the week. It couldn't have been any better. The owners and the realty company are very nice people. Thank you :-)

- Boating, waterskiing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, floating, snorkeling, all

the water fun just steps away from your deck.

- In addition to your own waterfront, we include passes to the two New London town beach parks,

nearby Elkins Beach and Bucklin Beach on Little Sunapee Lake. These are wonderful for children and

have lifeguards, picnic, and play areas.

- The walk or bike around Pleasant Lake is very popular, and connects to a series of woodland trails

that traverse miles of the surrounding area.

- The charming town of New London is the cultural, tax-free shopping, services, and culinary center of the

Sunapee region. There are a number of restaurants and shops of all categories to choose from, plus

a fine library for those rainy days. The village green and bandstand often have free concerts.

There is a sports store in town where you can rent bikes and kayaks. There is a supermarket,

drugstore, hardware store, and a NH State liquor store in town, plus many more interesting shops.

- During the summer, the New London Barn Playhouse offers wonderful summer stock musicals and plays

for all ages. It has been doing so for over 75 years! See their website for details.

- Colby Sawyer College in New London has a beautiful campus, which includes the Hogan Center,

available to the public. Hogan has an indoor pool, gym, running track, racquetball and squash, and

a comprehensive fitness center with weights, fitness and exercise machines, and regular aerobics,

yoga, and other fitness classes.

- There are a number of challenging golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Notable nearby public

courses are The Country Club of NH, Ragged Mountain GC, Newport GC, Eastman GC, and the family-

friendly 9 hole course at Twin Lake Village resort on Little Sunapee Lake. The private, Donald Ross designed course of nearby Lake Sunapee Country Club is also available to our renters.

- Tennis courts are available at the New London Outing Club, Mountainside Racquet and Fitness Center

(indoor), or you can try the Colby Sawyer or a local high school campus.

- Museums and historical sites include The Fells (John Hays' 1891 summer home and gardens) on Lake

Sunapee, several Shaker village museums within a short drive, the New London Historical Society

grounds in town, nearby Muster Field Farm, and the Saint-Gaudens national historic site on the

Connecticut River.

- There are a large number of antique, art, and craft shops and fairs in the area.

- The MV Mt. Sunapee and MV Mt. Kearsarge boats offer day and dinner cruises on nearby Lake Sunapee.

- And, of course, it is an easy day trip to visit the White Mountains, Lake Winnipesaukee, Boston, or the NH seashore, or an

even easier drive to Vermont or the Hanover/Dartmouth area!
