About John & Lynda Hunt
The only entrance to the castle is Sauvola Drive which is off Able Road in Rindge, NH close to the Rindge/Fitzwillaim town line. Google has Hunt Castle at 1000 Sauvola DR.There is a designated Castle Beach marked specifically for you. This home is our primary residence. Our children grew up in this home and now return to visit with their families. Construction began in the fall 1993 and finished in 1995. John's love of Castles began when he was a young child and grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennslyvania. As an adult he found this beautiful 500+ acreage of land quite by accident in the woods of New Hampshire. The plans to build this home began after much travel throughout, Europe exploring other castles. Today, after our five children have grown up and left this wonderful home, they continue to return to this gorgeous property to come together as a quite large extended family. We continue to celebrate many of the holidays here with our family and have now opened it up to you so that you may enjoy it as much as we do.
John & Lynda Hunt purchased this castle in 1995
Why John & Lynda Hunt chose Rindge
The Cathedreal of the Pines is a must see located in Rindge 5 minutes away with beautiful gardens; a historical landmark you would not want to miss. In less than 30 minutes, one can venture to Mount Monadnock, the most climbed mountain in the world. For the first time climbers, Pack Monadnock , only 25 minutes drive (across from Temple Mountain), is also a great family climb for those who have younger children. The views are spectacular. The town of Fitzwilliam, approximately 10 minutes away, is famous for it's Antiques. The town of Peterborough ( approximately 20 minute drive or less) well known for the 'Peterborough Players' theatre house, was also the setting for the well known play 'Our Town'. It also has many cozy shops and wonderful restaurants. The bustling city of Keene is great for window shopping, fine dining, and entertainment. The Colonial Theatre in Keene, features plays with some well know actors, singers and comedians and is located on Main St. Twinkle Town miniature golf can also be enjoyed by all and is located between the towns of Rindge and Keene approximately 15 minutes away. Besides our beautiful beach and lake, there are many other lakes and state parks that are close by (not more than 20 minutes drive) for a great beach day.

The grounds are immaculately groomed and in spring and summer the flowers are abundant.

There are over 500 acres of trails for hiking the fall, spring and summer, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing in the winter. There is also a disc golf course used year-round weather permitting.
