Intimate breakfasts as the sun rises over Sunapee ridge, and family holidays celebrated in the large country kitchen.
Hanging out in the pub and bar that resembles one frequented by the Rolling Stones.
Listening to music in the great room which has great acoustics and is lit by both sunrise and sunset.
Walking among the wildflowers and miles of trails.
Listening to the birds while soaking in the hot tub including the Snow Owl.
