This property is across the street from beautiful, private upper Suncook Lake. A short 2 minute walk from the lake house is required to get to your dock space.

Beautifully renovated and decorated 4 season cape by Upper Suncook Lake in New Hampshire’s Lakes region. This vacation home is close to all the major east coast cities but miles away from all the hustle and bustle. Your rental includes lake access and dock space with plenty of room to park your boat (21 foot or less) and or canoes/kayaks. There is a nice sitting/picnic area down by the lake where you can relax, read a book, or just enjoy the privacy of Upper Suncook Lake. You will have access to a picnic table, 2 Adirondack chairs, and a 20 foot dock down by the lake. Swimming is possible in this area as well. There is also a beautiful town beach just a 1/2 mile by car or a short boat ride from the dock. Avoid the boat traffic and congestion of busy Lake Winnipesauke. The privacy of Upper Suncook is unmatched for this area. You can see in the pictures the beautiful view and privacy with minimal boat traffic on the lake. Most of the west side of the lake is a reserve forest. Upper Suncook Lake is a perfect private location for lake sports, fishing, kayaking, snowmobiling, hiking, biking and much more!

Swimming is possible off the dock although there is a rocky shoreline. There is a beautiful sandy town beach just 1/2 mile from cape by the lake. Some of the best fishing on the lake is from your rented dock space!!! There is room on the dock to park your boat (21 feet or less) canoes or kayaks.

Great getaway cottage, even has lake access

  • 5 of 5

We came to this cottage to get together with family and it was wonderful. The beds are comfortable and this is important to us. It has a great backyard for kids to play and dogs to romp. It has lake access to Upper Suncook Lake and what a great pristine lake. We could hear the loons at night. We would love to return another year.

Perfect location to enjoy central New Hampshire

  • 5 of 5

We rented Brandt's property for a week as our son was getting married in Gilmanton, NH. It worked out perfectly - the wedding party visited on several occasions and made good use of the lake and its amenities. The place was nicely furnished and very comfortable. The weather didn't quite cooperate for our entire week due if we ever need to visit our new in-laws, we have the perfect place to stay.

I cannot say enough about this wonderful little cape. The location is great as it is right across the street from the lake. We enjoyed use of the dock on our first day floating on our tubes. We were going to check out the public beach on our second day, but after speaking to the owner's mom, we realized it may not allow dogs (we had our english bulldog with us). However, she gave us a great tip about a small patch of sand about 2 min drive from the house that is public. It was perfect for us!! It was indeed small, but great for the 3 of us. We were able to watch all the boats coming and going under the bridge. A wonderful spot for the day. The house itself has everything you could possibly want. We used the grill both nights. Comfortable, cozy and relaxing is the best way to describe this jewel.

Cape by the Lake is a delightful spot!

  • 5 of 5

My three kids, husband and I had a great time while staying here! Everything was very clean, convenient and comfortable. The dock was great for fishing, and we were close to the NH attractions that we wanted to visit. We wished we had more days here!
