Property description

Come and enjoy the fall foliage in our beautiful home on this very quiet lake. You will be able to kayak or canoe in one of the boats we provide or even row in the row boat. Or you can just sit and enjoy the view of the lake from our large open concept living area with pellet stove, or sit in the sun room by the gas fireplace . Enjoy the large deck overlooking water with table and chairs for you to enjoy a meal in the crisp fall air. The house has a master bedroom with queen size bed, has spectacular views of the lake and the adjoining sitting area has a trundle bed (sleeps 2). First floor bedroom has double bed. Swim and boat from our beach and dock. "If the water is warm enough" Mt. Monadnock is only 5 miles away and hiking trails are all around us. The historic town of Harrisville center is only 1 mile away with its general store, weaving center, and more lakes, and town beach. Keene & Peterborough 10 miles away. Like to golf...many great courses nearby. A great place to relax and unwind ! BUT BEST OF ALL WE HAVE THE BEST FALL COLORS AROUND!

Historic town of Harrisville: The town of Harrisville is one of the most photographed towns in New England with its lakes and beautiful brick buildings overlooking the town center. Harrisville Designs is a well known center for weaving classes and yarn shop. The town center is within walking distance to the house with its wonderful General store with restaurant and essentials.

Many Lakes to enjoy: Harrisville has 9 bodies of water to enjoy, Harrisville Pond in the center of town has a wonderful beach for everyone to enjoy. You can canoe, kayak, row, on any one of them. Bring your motor boat and water-ski on many of them.

LIKE TO HIKE AND BIKE!!! Mount Monadnock is only 5 miles from the lake and is the most climbed mountain in New England. It is an easy climb and the views are spectacular in all directions. There are quiet roads all around to bicycle on as well as bike trails in nearby Keene and Peterboro.
