Property description

'Beautiful rustic home (4 bedrooms) nestled in the woods with a private brook, frog pond and miles of hiking trails right out the back door, loved by all who have stayed here. Peace and quiet. The house is open from June 15 through Columbus Day weekend. We accept long weekend rentals after Labor Day.

Monadnock Region: The Covert (pronounced kuhvert, a secluded or hidden place) is close to Monadnock State Park, Pack Monadnock (auto road to summit), Peterborough Players, Monadnock Music, Shattuck Golf Course, Coll's Farm Stand and Sugar House, Rosaly's Garden and Farm Stand, the Friendly Farm (for children), Mariposa Cultural Museum, and several lakes for swimming. There is a lot to do for all members of the family in the beautiful Monadnock region.

Year Purchased: 2000

Why Jaffrey, NH, USA:
This house was built by my Grandfather in 1907. It was briefly owned by family friends, and we bought it back in 2000. My Grandfather used boards and beams from a falling down barn, and five different kinds of woods on the property for the floors. We spent our summers here growing up, with a wood, and a kerosene stove, an ice box, and our milk was stored in the spring in front of the house. It's still there.
