One thing we love most about New Hampshire is that it’s a four-season destination — and anyone booking Lake Sunapee rentals knows that! Whether you come to ski Mount Sunapee in the winter, swim in the lake in the summer, gawk at the gorgeous fall colors, or enjoy the first quiet days of spring sunshine, Lake Sunapee has so much to give.

Anyone who’s spent a few days on Lake Sunapee knows there’s a reason why people book lake houses here instead of Lake Winnipesaukee. The same reason why people ski Mount Sunapee instead of the popular ski resorts in the White Mountains. It’s quieter here in the Upper Valley. More local. More like how New Hampshire used to be.

And when it comes to where to stay, Lake Sunapee vacation rentals are the way to go. Not only do vacation homes massively outnumber hotels in the Dartmouth-Sunapee region, but having your own home is a better way to explore the area.

Below we’ve chosen our absolute favorite Lake Sunapee rentals, handpicked to show you the best of the best. We have luxurious homes that look like castles, gingerbread houses straight out of a storybook, lakeside rentals with their private docks — but also smaller, more affordable homes for a budget vacation in New Hampshire.

We hope you find the home of your dreams here — and have the best trip ever.
