Property description

Inquire today for a Nice Fall Getaway after the summer people have left!
A Stunning Lakefront home on crystal clear,sandy bottomed, 110 acre Forest Lake at the junction of NH,VT,& MA will be your long awaited retreat in the whispering pines, shimmering lakes, and beautiful foliage of New Hampshire. Bring the kids & dogs or just enjoy by yourselves.
The Great room with 25' high natural pine cathedral ceiling, skylights, entertainment center and fireplace is comfortably, casually, and uniquely furnished. Fall Foliage time is spectacular, both around the lake and on the many scenic drives nearby.

It looks out over the pristine Forest Lake that lends itself to a memorable vacation with family and friends. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen that incorporates a Jennair oven/range/grill, refrigerator/icemaker and dishwasher with all utensils, equipment, spices, condiments, etc. will make it difficult to try the eclectic restaurants in Keene, New Hampshire or historic Brattleboro, Vermont nearby.

The Four Bedrooms are 2 Queen beds, a Double, and the 4 season sun-porch with 2 single beds & Queen hide a bed (Great kid or teen suite with their own TV and VCR) and a Queen hide-a-bed in the living room and crib allow for a peaceful nights rest after a nice bath in the Jacuzzi tub or sitting in the private outdoor Hot Tub overlooking Forest Lake!

An additional living room/ sitting area with wood stove, AC and new half bath with full size washer & dryer gives you a chance to plan your day fishing,which is superb, swimming off the 150 square foot floating dock, using our canoe,3 kayaks, 4 person paddle boat, rafts on the lake, cross country or downhill skiing, snowmobiling on marked trails, antiquing and shopping in sales tax free NH, playing golf, hiking, biking, leaf-peeping, or attending one of the many auctions, flea markets concerts, shows or festivals in the area.

For a little exercise and a 100 mile view, climb Mt Monadnock, the most climbed Mtn in the world and only 15 miles from the house. Take the bikes down by the hobby farm with Llamas, goats, ducks, geese,lambs,horses etc. Horses and trail rides are less than a mile away and afterwards, rest those weary muscles in the new Hot Tub with the sun setting right into shimmering Forest Lake.

Winter brings cross country skiing right from the door,(10 sets of skis, 12 sizes of boots & lots of skates,snowshoes, hockey sticks and Ice fishing 'jigs' for your use!)big time downhill skiing within an hour, snowmobiling on marked trails,ice skating, sledding, ice fishing or just relaxing around the wood stove or propane fireplace.


Maybe best of all, just grab a book,snuggle in a chair by the fire,or on one of the 3 outdoor decks and just let your cares drift away as the sun slowly sets out over the lake!
We do tend to book up for the Summertime usually by months before, but also check out our new home on Rockwood Pond in Fitzwilliam, NH VRBO/181030.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We used to run a Country Inn and Spa in Canada. While we certainly enjoy our homes when we can, we really have fun providing an enjoyable and relaxing time for our guests, who do seem to return year after year. We'd like you to be one of them!

Why the Owner Chose Winchester:
The town of Keene, NH, 9 miles north has a wide and constant variety of things to do, with it's 3 universities and very active merchants assoc. The main downtown, with 60 shops & restaurants, with no national chains is very unique. There are all the 'Big Box' stores on the outskirts of Keene.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Forest Lake is very protected from prevailing winds, so it warms quickly in the Spring and freezes quickly in the Winter. As a mostly summer seasonal lake, from early fall to late Spring, you own the lake! We have all the boats and sports equipment for a fun filled vacation any time of the year!
