Top 10 Airbnbs Near Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire - Updated 2024

| 6 min read

Located in western New Hampshire, Lake Sunapee holds the title of being the fifth largest lake in the state. It sprawls 4,100 acres (1,659.2 hectares). It is ringed by numerous state parks, quiet towns, as well as the majestic Mount Sunapee and Mount Kearsarge. There’s no shortage of activities to entertain you. In the summer months, go kayaking, boating, or canoeing. Engaging in an outdoor activity here will be a tranquil experience like no other, with the sun glinting off the lake and the lapping of waves for company. In the winter months, do a spot of ice fishing or ice skating or visit the nearby mountains to ski down powder-white slopes. The towns situated around the lake also offer you a peaceful retreat reminiscent of your childhood days of camping. For your next vacation in the state, stay at a vacation home close to the lake.
