About the Fells
The Fells is one of the finest examples of an early 20th-century summer estate in New England. You can walk around the 100-foot Perennial Border, stroll through the Old Garden, look at the beautiful views of Lake Sunapee from the Rose Terrace and hillside rock garden, take one of the guided tours or explore the hiking trails.
