A quite morning at Sunapee Harbor and marina in the fall, Lake Sunapee, is in New Hampshire. There is a tour ship, and a dinning cruse ship for evening tours.I think a harbor like Sunapee is a beautiful place to visit this time of the year, it's not busy like in the summer. I love boats tied to docks and the reflection of them.Beautiful flowers and sailboats, just a wonderful harbor scene.
Our perfect summer evening in Sunapee Harbor began with a dinner cruise on the M V Kearsarge, a replica paddlewheel steamboat that has traveled the lake for thirty years. The all-you-can-eat buffet was superb, as was the scenery, and with top notch service as well. Our two-hour cruise covered the entire lake with Captain Dave Hargbol narrating the history of the area and pointing out places of interest. Standing on the upper deck after dinner and taking in the beautiful views was a memorable experience!
After the MV Kearsarge docked at 8:30 we were able to catch the last set of the concert at the Ben Mere Bandstand. As the sun went down, our local favorites, The Squids, played a tasty set of blues-flavored rock and roll. What a lovely setting and the band rocked!
There are so many things to do while spending a day in Sunapee Harbor. You can peruse art at the Harbor Gallery ... take the Riverwalk down to the new Sunapee Information Center ... visit the various shops ... take a tour boat cruise at 2:00 P.M. on the M.V. Mt. Sunapee... visit The Anchorage for an awesome dinner, drinks and live music ... get a bite at Marzelli's Sunapee Harbor Sweet Shop and Cafe ... get a yummy ice cream treat at The Quack Shack ... visit the Sunapee Historical Society Museum ... orjust relax in the park and enjoy watching the boats on the lake.Boaters can put their craft in at the public boat launch or rent or charter almost any type of watercraft at Sargent's Marina. There is a reasonable amount of free parking right next to the waterfront and there are the all-important public rest-stations nearby.
Thanks for looking.
