Recent Monadnock Region property reviews

  • Cozy and comfortable.

    "We had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. It's small but cozy and comfortable for a family. The cottage is right on the water with a big deck and a beautiful view. The owners were great to work with and are very accommodating. The location is convenient to many attractions and the price was reasonable. The negatives are: Parking is very minimal. There is a very steep and uneven set of stairs down to the cottage that are borderline treacherous so I would not recommend this rental for the elderly or handicapped. Overall we were very pleased and would recommend the rental. We would stay again."

  • "We were delightfully surprised by this beautiful and charming home. Our kids loved jumping off the dock, we enjoyed fishing in the canoe, and the location is perfect. A very comfortable place for a nice family vacation. We'll be renting again this year."

  • Wonderful family retreat

    "Four winds was perfect for our annual summer family vacation with grandparents, parents, and five children ages 6 to 12. We all enjoyed the pool and the fantastic views. The home is arranged so the whole group can congregate or so that anyone wishing some time away from the whole group can find a place to retreat to. We took several hikes, one of them easy enough for the older folks, spent time playing ball outside, enjoying the pool, playing some of the many games available, watching movies, admiring the beautiful surroundings, making use of the game room, and relaxing. We hope to visit it again, and highly recommend this place."

    "We used the property for a 50th birthday getaway for our extended family of about 30 people. Between all of the dwellings on the property there was plenty of room for all. All of the buldings were comfortable and well maintained. The options of using rental charis and tables was great for this larger crowd and the ammentities of two refrigerators and plenty of bedrroms and baths were wonderful for a big crowd. We enjoyed the hot tub out on the deck while it was cold outside! This house is trully on the top of a mountain without another propety in sight so if you are looking for secluded (yet only about 15 mins from both Keene and Peterborogh) this is wonderful! We enjoyed a nice afternoon in Peterborough poking through shops and highly reccomend it. Overall we had a wonderful party at a wonderful location! We did have one family member in a wheelchair and it was a littel complicated manuvering in the house but the caretaker did a wonderful job of letting us know ahead of time our limitations and there was still plenty of room for the wheelchair to get around on the first floor."

Monadnock Region Travel Tips

Comfortable Monadnock Region Vacation Rentals

The Monadnock region is located in the southern part of New Hampshire. Known for its scenic beauty, historic covered bridges and rich cultural and historic heritage, it's a welcoming haven for vacationers. Monadnocks are unique geological features. They are so named because they are characteristically hard rock mounts made up of quartzite and volcanic rock that has remained after the surrounding softer rock has been eroded away. Scenic roadways and beautiful mountain vistas make fantastic photographic opportunities, especially in the fall season when the leaves turn all different shades of rusty hues.

In line with the beauty of the surrounding area, many of the rentals are stately homes set in beautiful gardens and mountain settings. Some are quiet cabins on a lakeshore where you can fish and boat in the lazy summer days. Others are tucked away in forest groves, offering tranquil seclusion and great opportunities for bird-watching. These homes may be in remote locations but almost all have full amenities of hot and cold running water, comfortable furnishings, cozy fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens and a host of modern conveniences. Many can accommodate small groups and extended families, and are often used for family reunions or small weddings. The Monadnocks is a region that you want to be able to explore at leisure and having a vacation home allows you the freedom to do just that. While out on your explorations, you can stock up with delicious fresh produce from one of the local farmers' markets and enjoy a home-cooked meal at the end of a busy day.

Changing Seasons in the Monadnocks

It's difficult to choose which season to visit Monadnock region cabins, for each has its own unique attractions. The summertime is great for exploring the lakes, quaint towns and villages, historic sites and hiking the forest trails. The fall is spectacularly beautiful with the foliage turning golden and red colors and creating a royal carpet on the forest floor. The season has its own magic and is a photographer's dream. As the cold winter months arrive, so does the snow, dusting everything in a sparkling white blanket. The towns and ski resorts are transformed into to a hive of activity, especially over weekends and holiday periods. As the snow melts, the forests and mountains once again become filled with vibrant colors and sounds of nature. Spring is an almost dream-like season in which to visit the Monadnocks.

Traveling in the Monadnocks

The Monadnocks are just a short drive from Boston, Hartford and New York City. Many visitors that come from other parts of North America use one of these cities as a hub to fly into and then travel to the region using a rental car. Because the towns and many of the Monadnock lodging options are quite remote, it's a good idea to have your own vehicle in which to explore the region.

Monadnock Region's Attractions

The area is famous for its beautiful covered bridges and there are route guides you can find at the local tourist centers which will guide you to the various sites. Well preserved and each one unique, it is well worth taking the time to seek them out. Throughout the year, there are festivals and events in the various towns and villages. A hot air balloon festival takes place each year in July and the colorful balloons can be seen soaring above the treetops. The Monadnock State Park has some excellent hiking trails. Maps are available from the park entrance points and hikers must be adequately prepared when heading out on the trails.
