Loon Lighthouse on Lake Sunapee
According to the Lake Sunapee Protective Association, “Lake Sunapee’s unique inland lighthouses are a cherished feature for visiting boaters and residents of the area. They were built in the era of the grand steamboats which plied the lake from the 1880’s to the 1930’s, carrying passengers, luggage, mail and tourists on a circuit of the grand hotels and individual residences with steamer landings on the lake.” Take a tour with Sunapee Cruises or rent a boat with Goodhue Marina and get out on the lake to take your photo of Loon Lighthouse with Mount Sunapee in the background.
