Kezar Lake Activities: Follansbee Inn, North Sutton, NH B&B

The lakefront at Follansbee Inn offers a pier with kayaks, canoes and standup paddleboards.

Tall pine trees shade the shoreline, and there are open spaces for sunbathing and lounging. A picnic bench, several lounge chairs and a hammock make comfortable places to enjoy the tranquility of the lake. Kezar Lake is a perfect size for swimming, quiet boating and fishing, too. If you would like a little privacy, row out to the secluded island for a picnic. And don’t forget the “Small Town America” Fourth of July festivities for young and old alike.

The three mile walk around the lake is a perfect distance for easy exercise or for a quick jog, any season of the year. You’ll see Mount Kearsarge in the distance. It’s the highest point in the area at 2,914 feet. You can take an easy hike (or choose to take a more challenging one) to the top of the mountain for panoramic views of the valleys below, and as far away as the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Atlantic Ocean.
