Sunapee Harbor has been a mainstay for vacationers since the 1800’s when the sweltering heat of the cities sent vacationers fleeing north by train to enjoy the cool waters of Lake Sunapee. Nestled along the shores of Lake Sunapee in the heart of the Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee Region of New Hampshire, Sunapee Harbor offers boating, kayaking, shopping, waterfront dining, picnicking, fishing, free music, narrated boat tours, ice cream and much more. The Harbor is also the home of the Sunapee Historical Museum where you will find wonderful pictures and nostalgia of the bygone Steamboat Era and the grand hotels that once graced the shores of Lake Sunapee. Plan to visit this beautiful area and spend a day or a weekend soaking up the sun in this tranquil, but vibrant quaint harbor town. We look forward to seeing you!
