About this listing
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!
We continue to use this property as a home away from home with our four kids so we ask you to treat our home with respect and take care with our possessions. Expect to leave the house as you found it - clean, no trash left behind, no perishable foods in the cupboards or refrigerator, etc.
The house is connected to a septic tank so try and and take it easy with showers and stagger timing to give the septic time to handle the volume, especially if at the max limit of 10 guests.
Our no pets policy is very strict and we admit one-sided as we have a young dog that we bring with us - so if you have strong pet allergies where a previous pet guest would disrupt your visit, please consider a different property.
You'll need to bring your own bed sheets and bath & kitchen towels. (We have pillows and blankets.) The bed sizes are adult bedroom on 1st floor=king, adult bedroom on 2nd floor=queen, kids room on 2nd floor=4 twin beds, pullout couch in LR on 1st floor=full/queen.
