Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: My husband Bill and I purchased this cottage in 1998 so that we could be close to but not on top of my family. My mother, brother, aunt and cousins all have cottages on this lake.
Why the Owner Chose Spofford, Chesterfield, NH, USA:
Our family has lived on this lake since the 1920's, when my grandparents first bought a cottage here.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy the boating, swimming, sailing, sun and berry picking this lake affords. There are shopping and restaurants in nearby Keene and Brattleboro, live theatre in Peterborough and West Chesterfield and antiqueing throughout the area.
