There may not be a better place for families to stay in Sunapee area than this 10-room country inn a few-minutes’ drive from the lake and the mountain. Rooms are cozy enough, but it’s really the ambience that makes the lodging, with a spacious downstairs with multiple sitting rooms (two with fireplaces) and a separate kids’ playroom chock full of games, puzzles, stuffed animals, and videos. Across the street, a separate annex with seven more rooms also includes a huge game room for teens (and adults) full of air hockey, foosball, and a pool table. After a fun day on the slopes, the whole family can retire to their separate activities and make new friends, even while it’s easy enough for parents to keep an eye on the kids. Outside are 20 acres of grounds full of cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails; in summer, activities include a heated outdoor pool, volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, and other sports.

We had a wonderful time staying at Dexter’s. John the manager was fantastic. We had five adults and three children and there was plenty for all of us to do to stay happy and active. The sheets and towels were excellent. The grounds are unbelievable. It is ClassSick New Hampshire without having to rent a house or lift a finger.
My husband & I stayed at the Inn for 2 nights. We were guests at the Silva wedding event. The room was cozy & the Inn keepers were very accommodating! They had a nice breakfast spread in the morning that was delicious!! The grounds & Mountain View’s are beautiful!
