The Space

House on Perkins Pond, 10 minutes from Sunapee Mountain - Bring your Kayak, Canoe, SUP, Ski Boat, Fishing Rods, Hiking Boots, Skis, Snowboards and be prepared to get back to doing something you really deserve ... reconnecting with your fun-self, kids, spouse, nature! Winter or Summer!

We admit it, the house is a little campy but it is very comfortable and can accomodate a variety of situations. The main floor has the kitchen, living room, full bath, and main bedroom with a king bed and the LR has a pull out full size bed too. The main bedroom and bathroom are 3 steps up from main floor so some restrictions if mobility is an issue. The 2nd floor has the other 2 bedrooms (one with a queen bed) and the other bedroom has 4 twin beds with 3 of them in their own cubby (this is where the campiness comes in). There is only 1 full bath but its been recently remodeled and may be the best room in the house!

The house is situated alongside a gentle lapping lake, with swim platform and a dock (with the public boat launch just down the road). The lake is 150 acres so very good for kayaking/canoeing and at the same time can accommodate a motor boat - our dock best accommodates a 22 foot boat. In the winter there are plenty of ice fisher-people and pockets of smooth ice to keep you busy on your afternoon hike across the frozen lake (in the event you choose to take a day off from skiing at Sunapee Mountain).

You are not completely cut off from civilization - driving 15-20 minutes will get you to a grocery store or gas station or movie theater or bowling alley or one the many local restaurants.

Face it, you have the opportunity to do as much (or as little) as you want!

  • Great ski cabin and probably even better summer house. Like the appleTV. Note that it doesn't have a dishwasher (something we forgot to check before we rented). Would stay here again.

  • Great and charming little house up on the pond, and only 15 minutes from the base of the ski area at Mt. Sunapee.

  • My friends and I had an amazing weekend at The Perkin's Pond house. The house was cozy and clean and perfect for our winter getaway. The lake right outside the house was frozen over and was safe to skate on. Gretchen was really easy to work with. She even checked in to make sure everything was ok during our stay. I would definitely recommend Perkin's Pond house to anyone who is consider it!

  • A very pretty setting along a clean gorgeous pond, plenty of room, and a very satisfactory stay. Written instructions left by owner were extremely helpful, and reflected very positively on the organizational skills of Gretchen. Easy to find, even at late night hours. Gretchen was very easy to work with and quite friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Beats a hotel anytime!

  • The house was great. A bit campy as described, but worked well for our friendly group of ten (had we been less friendly or stayed longer than two nights, it would have been a tight). Everything you need to enjoy the water.

About
We are a 40-something year old couple with 4 kids who both have busy careers. Our rental property is a 2nd home for us and not getting much TLC from us these days so we are hoping to utilize Air BnB to bridge us over to calmer days....
