Overview

About the property

Lake frontage in scenic New Hampshire

Rejuvenated but rustic camp. Relaxing open living space has large windowed porch to sit and enjoy the lake views. Open concept living area is roomy and cozy. Modernized kitchen with new stove and refrigerator makes meal prep and clean up a breeze.

There are kayaks (4), paddle boards (2) and a canoe to explore the clean, clear water and catch sight of the loons. Life vests avail from age 1 and older. (There's even a doggie vest for small to med dogs). Water toys, beach chairs and swim fins also available.

Mount Monadnock hiking trails are within easy driving distance (19 miles) and Southern NH is bursting with nature trails. Granite Gorge Ski Area is 5 miles away and Southern NH and VT ski areas within an hour's drive. Check out the web for Southern NH and VT cross country and downhill ski areas within easy driving distance.

We have tried to accommodate all ages in setting up Grammy camp. Having a large family, we understand keeping children busy so parents can relax. One side of porch is full of toys, games, and a GIGANTIC tub of Legos; the other side has a comfortable sitting area for morning coffee, tea or evening cocktail.

Satellite TV, streaming device and wireless Internet keeps you in touch with modern life and children in touch with their favorite programs.

Grammy Camp stay is quiet and stress free. Take a walk around the lake (3 miles) and enjoy the warm southern New Hampshire sun.

Camp is fully insulated and heated so you will be toasty warm even in a Winter blizzard. The town road is paved and plowed. Keene (11 miles) is a great walk around college community with ethnic restaurants, interesting shops and the new Monadnock Food Coop.

Maximum sleeps 4 guests. Minimum 2 night. Maximum 13 nights

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Joan was very hospitable and responsive to all of my questions. The house is a cute little cottage right on Granite Lake and the area is beautiful and quiet. We had a wonderful weekend getaway!

Great lake house with awesome hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at Granny Camp, and loved every minute of it. The moment we walked in it felt like home, mostly due to Joan's cozy style and thoughtful stocking of staples in the kitchen and bath areas (got a cut? there's band-aids. need a spice other than salt or pepper? it's probably in the cupboard). New floors and windows make the house feel up to date and comfortable.

The house is on a small cove of the lake, which is shallower and quieter than the rest of the lake (although the lake itself is pretty quiet overall). It was frequently nearly noon before I saw another person go by on the road. Nearly all activity comes to a stop before dark, though.

Joan kept in touch by email every few days to check if we had everything we needed, and her husband brought us extra towels just in case we needed them (we didn't). I felt privileged to use her property because she made us feel so welcome.

We had a couple of small issues once or twice getting the grill to light, but it we were able to get it to light - it probably just needs a cleaning. The firepit worked well and was fabulous for us coming from Florida where it's too hot to have a summertime fire.

All in all we were very happy here, and would consider renting it again if our travels take us back to New Hampshire in the future!

Fantastic! Perfect, relaxing, family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation spot for families or if you just want to relax. The cabin is very cute, well decorated, clean and updated. The amenities are awesome with a nice full kitchen with some basic spices and cooking things (just missing a microwave), a large spacious bathroom, a spare bedroom which was a pleasant surprise, an open floor plan with nice luxury vinyl planks and a tv with cable and movies to watche, a super cute and relaxing screened in porch with tons of toys and games for kids and families. The only thing not in the house is ac, but they have window fans in the bedrooms and it was cooler with the breeze from the lake. For outside there is a nice fire pit, large gas grill, outside seating, tons of kayaks, paddle boards, a canoe, a dock directly across the road for fishing or launching, semi private beach with some sand and shallow swimming only 100 foot walk to the left of the cabin. Joan the host was very helpful and easy to get a hold of for questions. There is a small gas station and a country store only about 8 min from the cabin and a cute little Methodist church for church goers. Keene is only about 30 min drive away with tons of shops and things to do. Overall an excellent vacation spot! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here! Very quiet here. A great little find!

Perfect spot for a relaxing gateaway!

  • 4 of 5

Granite Lake is beautiful and clean! Property has everything you want (grill, fire pit, outdoor shower) that you never need to leave.

The screened in porch is a cozy spot for an evening cocktail on a cool fall night!

Highly recommend.
