"We chose this location as it was close to our son's camp, and we loved it.
The area is beautiful, the house was great, and the screened in porch was perfect for sitting and enjoying the sound of the brook while reading when the day was done.
It was 100°+ for the first couple of days we were there. There is one window a/c in the master bedroom on the first floor. We just kept the doors closed to the upstairs, and our son slept on the couch. It cooled the downstairs enough to be comfortable. We're also from FL, so this was not a big deal for us. May want to consider this if you need central air. The next few nights it was more than cool enough to keep the windows open.
Yes, a few things need to be updated, but everything worked just fine. We were barely in the house anyway, as we went traveling around. Crotched mountain is right down the road, as is a small beach (we really didn't want to go swimming though). I suggest you walk around the towns of Peterborough and Keene, and drive a little further south to visit Cathedral of the Pines. The twin mountains were close enough for a short day trip. Brattleboro, VT is also close by. There is cable and.WI-FI, which is great as cell service is spotty, even on our Verizon phones.
My cons, couldn't really find any. I am used to older houses, so the steep stairs didn't really surprise us, as that's just the way these old homes are. We did have a small issue first day, and the owner was quick to take care of it. We recommended this home to family and friends. We've also decided if our son goes back to camp next year, we'll gladly rent the home again. It was perfect for our four night stay."

"Being originally from NH and now residing in SC, it was nice to "come home". The cabin was very welcoming, nicely kept, peaceful,quiet and gave ample time for solitude and reflection. We are enjoying our stay immensely. The fact that it is dog friendly makes it all the better, our furry child enjoyed it also. Finally got to explore Cathedral of the Pines, and what a place, the founders, I'm sure had no idea how far reaching this place is, or how inspiring and comforting it is to the soul."

"My son and I had a real nice Labor Day Weekend at the Winchester Lakefront cottage. We enjoyed fishing and relaxing in a very beautiful area of NH. The owners Janice and George very hospitable. Their cottage was very clean. They had everything you needed for a very enjoyable vacation. We look forward to visiting again."

"The view was breathtaking. We went swimming every day. Kayaking and canoeing were a blast! The trees create a nice private refuge for a vacation. Much better than touristy vacation spots. Very relaxing yet fun! The porch was nice for cocktail hour. There so many games to play, such as corn hole/bags. It was a great place to have family time together. The house itself looks really amazing with all the antiques and paintings. A bonfire for s'mores is always fun."
