The famous John Hay, first Secretary of State, found summer refuge along the banks of Lake Sunapee.

Located high on a hill overlooking the clear Lake Sunapee, the Hay family found summer refuge. Sweeping views of blue waters and green mountains describe the landscape surrounding the expansive grounds and gardens once enjoyed by a former author and confident of President Abraham Lincoln.
