A historic lodge in the heart of the Dartmouth- Sunapee region. A rustic getaway with upscale amenities. WiFi throughout with WiFi enabled TV for Netflix, Hulu, etc., but no cable TV (it's a vacation)!

LGBT friendly. Pet-free, smoking/smoker free. Maximum occupancy of 2. Visitors are not allowed at any time. Minimum age of adults renting the space is 25. Families with teenagers (13+ welcome). The space isn't suitable for children.

The space
90 minutes from Boston & just 5 miles from the summer fun of Lake Sunapee & Mount Sunapee, the 'Lodge' is a truly unique space with timeless and upscale accommodations that make this far more than your traditional rental destination! Located at the historic estate and summer residence of 2-term New Hampshire Governor Francis P. Murphy, we provide a rustic, yet romantic retreat.

LGBT friendly. Pet-free, smoking/smoker free. Maximum occupancy of 2. Minimum age of adults renting the space is 25. Visitors are not allowed at any time. Families with teenagers (13+ welcome). The space isn't suitable for children.

Stepping into the Lodge, you're transported back in time, surrounded by hand-hewn beams and spruce boards dating back to the 1920's. The space has to be seen to really be appreciated...and we've carefully updated and chosen furnishings that would be comfortable, but appropriate for the space.

A large and comfortable sectional with chaise features a fold out queen size bed is parked in front of an entertainment center: LED WiFi television with surround sound CD/DVD/Stereo. As there is so much to do, see & enjoy in the Dartmouth-Sunapee Region, we don't provide cable (it's supposed to be a vacation after all!) The tv is WiFi enabled so you can easily log into your Netflix or Hulu accounts over our high speed wireless.

An oversized field-stone fireplace with twin leather pub chairs awaits the weary traveler or skier. The fireplace is sealed for safety, but ventless gel fuel canisters are available for purchase ($10 for a set for about 2 hours or so) that looks and crackles just like a real fire. Twin bookcases with Tiffany lamps are filled with books, games and distractions for when you just want to hang out.

When you're ready to cook, the kitchen at the Lodge has everything you need. This original and virtually unchanged turn of the century kitchen features original built-ins with modern electric stove and oven. Full-sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and anything else you'll need. A farm style table sits beneath trendy Edison light bulbs for cards, games or meals.

After a day on the road, at the lake or on the slopes, you'll enjoy Governor Murphy's 'Locker Room', with a large walk-in 2 person shower.

Lastly, when you're ready to crash, the Master Bedroom features a large king size sleigh bed with 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, goose down comforter, and tons of pillows. In the living room, there is a sectional queen sized pull out couch with a chaise lounge for relaxing.

This is as close to a truly classic lodge as you'll find this side of the White Mountains...filled with history that we've worked to make comfortable for anyone. We hope you'll love it as much as we do!

Location

Newport, New Hampshire, United States

The Murphy Estate is located right off the General Stark Highway and is centrally located in the heart of the Lake Sunapee area...minutes from the slopes of Mount Sunapee or the harbor of Lake Sunapee. Though we are close to all activities and town, we're tucked away on a quiet side street, surrounded by woods (don't be shocked to see young deer running around the back yard). It's peaceful, quiet and very private. If you bring a mountain bike you can bike right down the street and hit the railtrail. It's an amazing stretch between here and Claremont with ponds, wildlife and covered bridges.

Downhill skiers will love Mt. Sunapee...or Mt. Ascutney and Okemo mountain...also close by. Golfers will love Newport's Golf Course. Gaudens historic site nearby. Reconstructed Fort #4 offers historical reenactments and colonial-style Thanksgiving Dinner. Gourmet dining on Lake Sunapee, New London, Lebanon and Hanover. Hopkins Center and Dartmouth College 50 min. Horseback Riding and Blueberry Picking nearby, Bird Watching, Sledding, Walking, Antiquing...tons of things to do!
