Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Just 7-miles from skiing and adventure sports at Mount Sunapee and 2 miles from quaint Sunapee Harbor, our bright and cheerful waterfront cottage has everything you need for a relaxing family vacation at any time of year. Your dog is welcome, too!

Relax on the private dock, go for a swim, or explore the pond in the canoe.

Can't escape work? The fast Wifi and office nook make working remotely easy.

Find us on Insta at @perkins_pond for more photos and things to do in the Sunapee region.

The space
Our comfortable and tastefully updated cottage was designed with family vacations in mind, from the bunk beds and board games to the well-organized kitchen and no-tears kids' shampoo.

The main floor features an open floor plan with a wall of windows so you can take in the fabulous lake views while you...

• Cook a family meal in the well-equipped kitchen with updated appliances
• Lounge in front of the smart TV under cozy throw blankets
• Eat and play board and card games at the dining table

Open the glass doors to sip your morning coffee (or evening glass of wine) on the patio, or walk down a few steps to the private dock for star-gazing at night.

Go for a swim, fish off the dock, search for cute little salamanders in the shallows, or use our canoe during your stay to explore the pond.

If you want to bring your own boat (powerboats are allowed, and water-skiing is fun!), the public boat ramp is just up the street.

At the end of the day, head upstairs where you'll find a full bath (bathtub/shower combo) and two spacious bedrooms.

The master bedroom features large windows with beautiful water views, a ceiling fan, and a queen bed.

Need to get some work done? The master bedroom features
* A desk with a USB charging station
* Computer monitor, mouse, and keyboard

There's also a nook with a washer and dryer if you need to do laundry during your stay.

What kid doesn't love bunk beds? Down the hall, the second bedroom is the perfect spot for kids with two bunk beds, plus a queen bed with a memory foam mattress.

Want to sleep in? Black-out shades in both bedrooms make it easy to catch some zzz's.

FOR DOG OWNERS:

We're dog owners, and we know how tough it is to find a nice vacation rental that welcomes our furry friend. That's why your house-trained pooch is a welcomed guest at Perkins Pond Cottage.

Food and water bowls, a crate big enough for large breeds, and a 20-ft in-ground lead are available for your pooch. Your dog must be disclosed in your booking request, and there is a $50 fee per pet to cover the extra cleaning costs (because shed happens!). This will be billed as a separate charge through Airbnb.

A NOTE ABOUT GROUP SIZE:
6 adults are permitted because adults are not allowed on the top bunks. If you're a family with children, we do have space for 8. Please describe the number of people when booking - many thanks!

You must be at least 25 years old to rent. Absolutely no parties, and no smoking on the property. The use of fireworks is not permitted. Please respect the neighbors and leave our home in the great condition you found it.

Location

Sunapee, New Hampshire, United States

Perkins Pond is a 157-acre natural lake with a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere (it's NOT a party lake!). It's a calm lake to take a leisurely paddle in the canoe, but on the weekends you'll see families out tubing or waterskiing.

Our cottage is on a well-maintained dirt road with close neighbors. The setting is quiet and natural, but not remote.

It's a quick 2-mile drive down the hill to quaint Sunapee Harbor where you'll find restaurants, an ice cream shop, harbor cruises, gift shops, a gas station, and Dunkin' Donuts.

Mount Sunapee is just 7 miles away for great skiing and snowboarding in winter, and hiking, mountain biking, and other adventure sports in summer.

As a kid, I spent many vacations at my relatives' former Perkins Pond cottage and made great memories swimming, water-skiing, and cross-country skiing on the lake. Perkins Pond is my happy place! It was my lifelong dream to own a lake house in New Hampshire, so, after renting a Perkins Pond home as guests in 2019, we jumped at the chance to own it ourselves a year later to create the ideal vacation home for our family and friends. My husband and I have two children who love to swim and fish at the cottage and ski at nearby Mount Sunapee. Our dog, Sadie, is a big fan of the local ducks and chipmunks. We're in a unique position of being both guests and hosts of the same property - and we're excited to welcome you to create wonderful memories of your own.
