Mission and Vision

Our Mission

Our mission is to welcome people of all ages to The Fells, making each visit an enriching experience with opportunities to explore and learn from our natural lakeside setting, our renowned gardens, and the historic achievements of statesman John Hay.

Our Vision

The Vision of The Fells is a restored and preserved Hay Family estate on Lake Sunapee that:

  • Draws people together to share interests in history, horticulture, ecology, and the protection of the lake;
  • Offers enriching educational programs and events to stimulate further the pursuit of those interests;
  • Provides access that lets visitors enjoy their Fells experience within a safe, tranquil environment and wildlife refuge.
