Looking for a little birthday escape for my husband and me, we found a Groupon for Mountain Edge and decided to check it out. The place is beautiful and the rooms are huge (and very clean!). We loved it immediately. A gorgeous place to visit, everywhere you look are mountains and lakes. We took a nice hike up Porky Blue Trail to the Summit of Mount Sunapee. Be prepared, bring water and wear comfortable shoes. And speaking of shoes, leave your cute shoes at home, ladies. Not a lot of night life here. Through locals' recommendations, we found Salt Hill in downtown Newport, about 15-20 minutes away, a pub/restaurant; Bubba's in downtown Newbury, about 5 minutes away, another pub/restaurant; and One Mile West, which is exactly one mile west of Mountain Edge, where we heard the Chris Fitz band place on Thursday night. They were amazing!! They also had excellent food there. The tavern at the Mountain Edge was beautiful, but very quiet. The staff was incredibly nice but the place was a bit of a ghost town. I guess that's to be expected when visiting a ski resort in the summer! The first night we were there, we ate at the Anchorage, which is at the marina where the Kearsarge docks out of. The lobster rolls there were outstanding. Although we were told to try the dinner cruise on the Kearsarge, we never made it. There was really no "downtown" or shops to walk around in. I was hoping to bring something home for my kids, but in the four days we were there, we found nothing. The reason I give this place four stars instead of five is because the pool was under maintenance while we were there, but this did not ruin our time. The outside Jacuzzi was wonderful and the inside pool was a great place to cool off. Also a great place to cool off was the Sunapee State Beach right off of the traffic circle, where there were plenty of picnic tables, many of them placed in the shade. A great place to bring a blanket and relax. We truly enjoyed our stay in the Sunapee region and hope to return soon. And when we do, we'll stay at the Mountain Edge.
