Recent Monadnock Region reviews

  • Excellent Fall Getaway

    "Just recently on the Columbus Day weekend my wife and two other couples rented the Forest Lake property. As with all of the other reviews, this property was everything we expected and read about. The house was certainly more than spacious enough for six adults and everything we needed was included in the house. The views of Forest Lake are splendid and every night we had a fire outside in the fire pit and enjoyed the warmth and solitude with an adult beverage. The city of Keene, New Hampshire is very close and it really is a nice New England style city and very clean with a variety of restaurants. I would certainly recommend visiting the city and enjoying the shops and the pleasant atmosphere. If one should run low on food and house supplies there is a fantastic grocery store on your left just before you arrive into Keene. Since we were at Forest Lake during peak foliage we made a trip to Vermont and visited Stratton Mountain which is not that long of a drive from Forest Lake and the foliage on Route 30 North and Route 100 South was outstanding. Both of these routes take you thru traditional New England country side and well worth the adventure. Also, another great foliage route is to travel route 9 which will take you to Hillsborough. Once in Hillsborough there is a tavern that looks very small but when it comes to serving a big time gourmet meal, it is a winner. This place could easily be a Food & Wine destination. After spending a few hours each day on our leaf peeping journeys we retreated to the lake house and simply relaxed by the dock or the upper deck just taking in the fantastic scenery. Since the house came complete with everything one would need to prepare and serve a gourmet meal, we feasted on specialty prepared dinners and enjoyed the comfort of sitting at the large dinning table and talking about our adventures we experienced for the day. Both my wife and myself have been using Home Away and VRBO for our summer vacations and Fall getaways for the past ten years. We were so surprised when we received a call from the owner of the property on Friday night upon our arrival and he welcomed us to his home and inquired if we needed anything. This has never happened ever before with our previous rentals. So in closing I would highly recommend that if anyone wants to rent a spacious, clean and perfectly located home in a traditional New England setting then certainly consider staying at Forest Lake. You will appreciate your "HOME AWAY"."

  • Colorado HipHikers

    "Wow! We came for the fall colors and were not disappointed. This place has it all- canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking (Mt Monadnock) the covered bridges. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit and shooting stars. We will be back."

    "If you are a true Lake Connoisseur, put this on your Top 10 List. Swimmer's & paddler's paradise. Quiet. Clean. Loons! Stars! Beautifully equipped kitchen. Totally unobstrusive but lovely young couple owner/landlord and well-behaved & charming old dog. For this reviewer, the best part is the water: the location on a tiny point of land leaves you surrounded on 3 sides by the soft, glimmering, shimmering, inviting water of Lake Skatatukee (pronounced with emphasis on the "-ta"). If relaxation is what you seek, if swimming, canoeing and reading are your idea of a good time, this is the place for you! (Bring your mountain bike - many roads in the area are dirt & gravel). (ps: bedroom mattress is quite soft).""

  • 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."

Keene Travel Tips

Stay in Keene Vacation Rentals when Visiting Keene State College

Staying in Keene vacation rentals is a way to visit the liberal arts Keene State College affordably. Whether you are in the area for a graduation or to watch a sporting event or performance, staying in a rental is often easier on your wallet than staying in a hotel. It's also better on your psyche since you have room to stretch, relax, and enjoy your visit to the New Hampshire area.

Stay With Groups in Keene Lodging

Keene Lodging offers multiple bedrooms, sleeping up to 15 guests. This makes it a great place for family reunions and get-togethers for friends. Enjoy the privacy of large acreage, which includes fields and forests. Don't worry about the weather. If it's too hot outside, just slip into an in-ground lit pool. If it's cold outside, relax in the hot tub or in front of a fireplace. Play some pool or ping-pong with the others in your group, or hold a cook-off in your fully equipped kitchen. The spacious accommodations are perfect for weddings and large parties. There is entertainment for everyone; Historic Braggleboro is only a short distance away, and there are many water activities found at Lake Spofford only a few minutes away.

Enjoy Sports, Festivals, and the Arts When Staying in Monadnock Region Vacation Homes

Monadnock Region vacation homes are the perfect places to stay when you decide to attend some of the area's most popular events. Whether you plan to listen to the Keene Jazz Orchestra or Pop Choir, or if you plan to attend a theater performance, staying close to town makes the event even more enjoyable. Don't forget to plan your visit around the Pumpkin Festival, which has (several times) set the world record for having the largest simultaneous number of jack-o'-lanterns on display.
