The Area




Myles Away is a great location for all seasons.  Crescent Lake is located in Acworth / Unity, NH, near Sunapee, Claremont, and Newport.

There is so much fun to be had on the lake itself that many weeks we don’t find the time to venture out.  For those who do, here are some of the activities you can find in the surrounding area:

  • Outdoor Ropes & Adventure Courses (Summer/Fall)
    • Mount Sunapee Adventure Park [Sunapee NH, 13 miles]
      • Ropes Course / Zip Line Tour (includes bridges, ropes, rappelling)
      • Ariel Challenge course
      • Bike Park
      • Miniature Golf
      • Disc Golf
      • Climbing Wall
  • Waterfalls
    Pollard Mill Falls (click for map & photos) is a gorgeous spot to enjoy the cool-water falls, swim in the river, and watch the local teens do crazy tricks.  A must see about 15 minutes (8 miles) from the home.
  • Trails / Hiking
    • Crescent Lake
    • Mount Sunapee (Trail Maps and Info Here)
    • Trails can be found in just about every nearby town.  AllTrails website is a great source for finding a trail that meets your needs.  Below are some starter links for a few of the towns surrounding Crescent Lake.
      • Claremont (at least four trails from easy to moderate)
      • Newport (two slightly easier trails)
      • Acworth (an easy and close trail)
  • Mountain Biking
    • There are dirt roads and snowmobile trails around the lake. We have not mountain biked them ourselves so can’t really speak to the biking quality.
    • In Newport (10 mins away) there is a 10 mile mountain bike trail (info here).
    • Mount Sunapee (20 mins away) has a “bike park” (info here).
  • Golfing
    Claremont Country Club hosts a nine hole course with small, well kept and challenging greens.  They also have limited hours in the winter.
