Lake Sunapee is New Hampshire’s 5th largest lake with an area of 4,085 acres. Little Lake Sunapee flows into Lake Sunapee adding another 473 acres to the water body. Native Americans used to call the lake Soo-Nipi which meant “Wild Goose Waters” in part because the lake resembles a flying goose with the head being at Sunapee Harbor. The lighthouse is an iconic Lake Sunapee symbol given that 3 of New Hampshire’s 5 lighthouses on the National Register are located on the lake. Lake Sunapee’s shoreline is sprinkled with unique and coveted boathouses. There are roughly 1,100 homes on Lake Sunapee.
The Sunapee region is rich with culture and adventure from golfing at the Sunapee Country Club, skiing at Mount Sunapee and the many cultural attractions such as the New London Barn Playhouse to The Fells Historic Estate and Gardens.
