Enjoy our little slice of heaven on two acres, just a short walk from New Hampshire's idyllic Crescent Lake. Crescent Lake is New Hampshire's cleanest lake.
Enjoy swimming, mountain biking, road cycling, kayaking, canoeing, hiking and great freshwater fishing. Or just chill out on our private association beach with a book and a glass of wine. Shopping nearby in Sunapee, Claremont and Newport. Be sure to stop by the Unity General Store for your morning coffee and paper.
Our bright and cheery cottage is family and pet friendly. Fully equipped to be your home away from home with complete kitchen, washer and dryer, WiFi, smart TV (internet, Netflix, on demand, etc.), DVD player, Bose Wave radio/CD, plenty of games and more. Please note we do not have cable TV. Cell service is not very reliable, but you are welcome to use the cottage phone for local and calls within the US. With two bedrooms and a sleep sofa in the living room six people are easily accommodated. Enjoy the large deck with lounge chairs, dining table and gas grill. At the beach, grab our three kayaks and explore our wonderful lake.
Shorewood Estates is a cottage community with great and friendly neighbors and a feeling that you've stepped back into a simpler time, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You're going to love this place!
We have two children and bought this property when they were young, so they have essentially grown up on the lake. We love to share our cottage and believe you will have a great and relaxing time here.

This is a great family spot. A place where memories are made and life is lived simply. Super private, yet steps from the lake and a myriad of wonderful activities!
We love the quiet setting combined with easy lake access, super hiking, swimming, cycling and more right nearby!
My husband and I stayed at the cottage over Veteran's Day Weekend with our dog and had the most pleasant stay. We were looking for weekend getaway and this was the perfect place to relax and have some quiet time. During our stay we hiked Mt. Sunapee, a 30 minute drive, and took walks down to Crescent Lake that is less than 5 minutes down the hill. It was great to have a well supplied kitchen to cook dinner in as the closest restaurant was a 15 minute drive and we didn't want to leave our dog alone. We would love to come back and visit during the warmer weather as we would love to kayak and swim in the lake and probably our dog as well. Thanks for the gift basket and being great hosts!
We enjoyed the cottage. It is a great peaceful getaway, with a great kitchen. Great place to relax and only 20 minutes from Wal-Mart and a bunch of other shops/amenities if you need anything. Beautiful lake--easy access, we enjoyed walking around but did not take the kayaks out because it was raining. Owner was very responsive via email and after our visit, he found my nephew's iphone charger and promptly mailed it back to him. Would love to return to the cottage in the future for a longer visit.
If you're looking for a quiet little cottage-type abode nestled back off the road and within walking distance to the lake you'll love this place. We were excited to have the tabletop fire pit outside because we LOVE our fires!!!!! And the inside fire isn't available for guests. Even though there is no tv and reception is "iffie",we didn't mind because we danced and listened to Pandora. Everything you need to feel just like home is there. Super place to Rest. And above all the Bonos are delightful hosts!!! Top drawer in our book!! Lyn & Jerry
I stayed here with four of my girlfriends for my 40th birthday celebration. It was cozy and accommodating especially for the price. It rained the whole weekend but we were still able to go out for walks and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. When we arrived we entered the home to find a thoughtful gift basket from Phil and a bottle of Champagne. The home was clean and comfortable I would recommend it and would go back for sure!
Clean, well cared for rustic getaway. We were greeted with a wonderful welcome basket with Kcups, biscotti, local spices, bubbles and squirt guns for the kids, as well as all the info we needed to orient us to the place. Owners are both thoughtful and reasonable. Enjoyed sitting on the deck, and kayaking on the lake and the stars at night. Well stocked conveniently located firewood for enjoying the fire pit at night. Loved being able to bring our dogs and letting them run into the lake with the kids. Lake access is a short 5 minute walk on a dirt and gravel road. Lake water was clean, but with a higher density of organic matter giving it a brownish tone. Nearby Mt. Sunapee state park (est. 25 min) had waters that were more blue and lifeguards, but no pets allowed. Mt. Kearsage was a nice day hike (even with young kids) within reasonable driving distance. We were looking to get away from a lot of electronics...expect to do the same. There was no cable/satellite tv, but there was access to their private Wi-Fi. The tv in the living room area was not capable of accessing that and is set up for dvd/vhs use only. Kids room had a smart tv that had access to Netflix and DVD/video. Good opportunity to connect with your family, play some games and enjoy some quiet. Area was quiet and peaceful. Greatful for our time together...kids wanted to stay after a week, which says everything. Thank you to the Bonomo's for making our stay comfortable.
My girlfriend and I recently stayed here for four days and three nights for a peaceful getaway for my 26th birthday. The property and the experience exceeded all of our expectations. When we arrived, the house was very clean, and true to the pictures online. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and easy to navigate, the bathroom was clean, and the living area was spacious and comfortable. A small binder with information about the house and surrounding area was left out for us.
We spent a lot of time on the porch, we used the grill, and Phil left us plenty of firewood and firestarters for the fire pit, and of course we made smores. As soon as we arrived, the house felt like our own cozy home, and we forgot it was a rental. We filled the fridge with our own food and cooked together every night. There are board games and movies, (look in the sudoku puzzle book, we finished one and signed it), and plenty of lounging space inside.
A 5-10 minute walk (or short drive) on a dirt road from the house is Crescent Lake. Phil left oars and life jackets in the house, and keys for the kayaks that are locked up right by the shore. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a trip out onto the lake together in a double kayak. The lake is clean and clear, just as described.
The one thing that made this trip perfect, besides the much needed solitude (it's incredibly quiet and serene), was the owner, Phil. We emailed/texted him throughout our stay whenever we had questions, and he answered promptly and happily every time. Thank you, Phil!
If this review seems like an exaggeration, I assure you it is not. My girlfriend and I had a vacation we'll never forget. If you are looking for an affordable, peaceful, fun and cozy getaway, look no further, because you've found it.

Lots to do a short ride away! Sunapee Adventure Park, Pollard Falls are thrilling. Pick blueberries and strawberries in season just a few minutes down the road. Amazing hiking just out the front door or a short ride away at Gove Hill, Mt. Sunapee, and Ascutney Mountain. Or stay at the lake to kayak, swim, fish, relax and explore!
