Property description

Our family has been enjoying summers at our charming, rustic wood lake cottage for 4 generations. Entertaining family and friends, on the sunny hillside lawn looking out to the lake or around the fireplace in the comfortable living room or on our wrap-around porch, with exquisite lake views, is something both young & old look forward to year after year. The spacious porch brings with it the tranquil sounds of the water, lapping up on the 100 feet of shoreline,& even the mesmerizing pattering of rain, right beneath your feet. Whether gently swinging on the gliders or on the antique rockers in the warmth of early morning sun, hearing the laughter of children & families playing on the lake, strumming guitars, playing games, doing crafts, napping or reading a book, sharing stories at cocktail hour as the sun sets, enjoying BBQ'ing & eating at the porch picnic table looking out upon or engaging in the lake activities, or listening to someone playing the antique upright piano from the living room, the simplicities of life, on the porch & around the cottage, can't help but surround you with happiness.

Activities are plentiful in and around the lake, like kayaking, canoeing, floating, fishing, swimming from the dock & private swim float. Fish for bass or head to Pierce Island State Park, in the lake's center, to swing from the rope, pick wild blueberries, swim & skip rocks at the beach, or hike it's interior. If you have a boat, enjoy the fun of tubing, waterskiing & wakeboarding. Bike around the lake or Pisgah State Park, Hike Mount Monadnock or Chesterfield Gorge. Golfing is available on the other side of the lake or in Keene. Local stands offer fresh produce from around the area, such as delicious corn, tomatoes, and berries( pick your own, if you'd like ). A variety of fantastic restaurants are available to chose from between Keene & Brattleboro. Enjoy the fine art & crafts of many local artists & craftsmen, go antiquing throughout the area, shop Keene's Faulkner & Colony Mill, or wander art galleries & museums.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Spofford:
Since the early 1900's, our family has been enjoying the beauty that Spofford Lake offers. Our great grandfather built on the other side of the lake, before roads provided access there, while other family members owned or continue to own cottages close to ours. Our mother and family, who grew up in Keene, played on the shores and in the clean, lovely waters of Spofford, as her children have, with ours following, creating a network of generations of friendships around the lake, who have grown up together, as one big family. Our cottage has been in our family for 60 years, a legacy to be continued.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is located on a private road, the porch facing the east rising sun over the lake, with picturesque views. For us, it is a unique environment, that offers a special place for gathering with our family, relatives, & friends, most of whom live out of the area. It's easy access to Hartford (1 hr. 5 mins) & Boston (2 hours) airports, as well as being 10 minutes to Keene or Brattleboro, puts it in a desired location for all who come & go. For our family, it is truly a get-away from life's everyday hustle & bustle, alleviating stress, allowing you to simply relax with your loved ones, with memories you will share for a lifetime. Our wish is for you to have the same experience.
