The Annual Craftsmen’s Fair is just one of many reasons to visit the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region this summer. During the Fair, the Mount Sunapee resort is transformed into a world-class showcase of fine art and craft by nationally- and internationally-renowned craftspeople.
Just a two-hour drive from Boston, the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region is known for its picturesque lakes and mountains. Visitors to the area can enjoy attractions such as:
- M/V Kearsarge cruises and boat tours
- Fells Historic Estate and Gardens with its nature trails and tours of historic homes
- Watersports — beautiful lakes for boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming and fishing
- Great hiking for experienced and novice hikers
For more information about the region, visit the Lake Sunapee Region Chamber of Commerce website.

There is something for every excitement level at the Adventure Park.
While you are at the Fair, plan to take the chair lift to to the top of Mount Sunapee and explore the summit — the view is amazing!
