Lake Sunapee is a quiet destination with ice cream and souvenir stores and a restaurant. Makes for a very pleasant visit. But the boat ride around the lake is the best - good narration (not a lot of jokes ala the Disney jungle cruise) and...More

Very pretty and clean lake. The marina has two shops that are very cute, a smoothie shop, a small market and an ice cream shop. Also, Anchorage Restaurant.

Watch out! I was here on a beautiful day and saw poop floating by!! Ewwww!!!! And then I saw a bunch of drunk teenagers blaring loud bad music and I’m out of here! Not worth the trip!

Beautiful lake. Great place to visit. They had a band playing right at the marina. We did a cruise on the lake, It was a great way to see the lake.

Stopped by to take some photos. Went to the Sunapee State Beach. Friendly gate guard. Lots of people enjoying the beach and water. Canoe rentals available as well as snacks. Great place to bring the family on a hot day.

Had a blast. 2 days during July 4th weekend. Had fireworks at the commons. Ice cream at the shack. Family friendly for younger and older kids. Also good for just friends sans kids.

The town of Sunapee is like no other town I've ever visited. It's like the 1950's leave it to Beaver America that never actually existed. It is an oasis among our modern world of extremism, negativity and all that is bad in the world. Honestly,...More
