About the owner: Charlie and Cherryl Boucher have owned and rented this rustic cottage on the cove for 9 years. They take pride in their place and love to share it with others. They have lived in the area for 20 years and choose this cottage because of the beauty and serenity that it offers.
Why the Owner Chose Hillsborough: Having lived at summer camps for many years this cottage reminded them of the great times along the lake shore when they would sit back and enjoy the roaring campfire and watch the ducks, beaver, geese and blue heron paddle by. The lawn between the cottage and the cove offers a great space for hanging out with family and friends enjoying a cook-out, reading a good book, or taking an afternoon nap.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Folks return every year because of the great view, to take a paddle in the canoes, hike the miles of trails in the nearby Fox Forest, do some great fishing, and tour the Monadnock area.
