The town of Goshen, a quintessential New England town, is nestled in the foothills of Mount Sunapee. Originally settled as part of Sunapee, the town, incorporated in 1791, borders Sunapee, Newport, Unity, Lempster and Washington. You might be surprised to find some real gems in town, like camping on Rand Pond, canoeing on Gunnison Lake, and an active community church and grange hall. But, if you’re a resident, you’ve enjoyed these spots all along.

If you enjoy canoeing, try Gunnison Lake, fondly called “the Goshen Ocean” by local residents. You can bird watch from a tranquil spot on the lake.
Take a hike on the Ruth LeClair Memorial Trail, a three-mile loop around Gunnison Lake. You'll see flora, in glorious fall colors, as well as fauna.

  • Home project, outdoor project or just want to get organized, stop by Lumber Barn on Route 10.
  • Homemade donuts and some really good sandwiches can be found at the Goshen Country Store.

Back Side Inn is named for its location on the “back side” of Mount Sunapee. The inn is a four-season facility located on 120 acres, including waterfront on Rand Pond, with fine dining offered Wednesday to Sunday between May and October.
