Property description

Inquire today for a Memorable Lakefront Vacation in NH. We have lots of Winter sports equipment available and the boats are out till the lake is skatable.
Long term heavily discounted winter to spring stay available.!
A Stunning Lakefront home on crystal clear,sandy bottomed, 110 acre Forest Lake at the junction of NH,VT,& MA will be your long awaited retreat in the whispering pines, shimmering lakes, and beautiful foliage of New Hampshire. Bring the kids & dogs or just enjoy by yourselves.
The Great room with 25' high natural pine cathedral ceiling, skylights, entertainment center and fireplace is comfortably, casually, and uniquely furnished. Winter Time is terrific for a relaxing break from the Holiday season or go cross country skiing, snowshoeing or hiking from our door.
It looks out over the pristine Forest Lake that lends itself to a memorable vacation with family and friends. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen that incorporates a Jennair oven/range/grill, refrigerator/icemaker and dishwasher with ALL utensils, equipment, spices, condiments, etc. will make it difficult to try the eclectic restaurants in Keene, New Hampshire or historic Brattleboro, Vermont nearby.

The Four Bedrooms are 2 Queen beds, a Double, and the 4 season sun-porch with 2 single beds & Queen hide a bed (Great kid or teen suite with their own TV and VCR) and a Queen hide-a-bed in the living room and crib allow for a peaceful nights rest after a nice bath in the tub or sitting in the private outdoor Hot Tub overlooking Forest Lake!

An additional living room/ sitting area with wood stove, AC and new half bath with full size washer & dryer gives you a chance to plan your day fishing,which is superb because the state stocks Brown & Rainbow trout to complement the numerous Large mouths, Perch, and Horned Pout. Enjoy swimming off the 150 square foot floating dock, using our big canoe,3 kayaks, 4 person paddle boat, rafts on the lake, cross country or downhill skiing, snowmobiling on marked trails, antiquing and shopping in sales tax free NH, playing golf, hiking, biking, leaf-peeping, or attending one of the many auctions, flea markets, concerts, shows or festivals in the area.

For a little exercise and a 100 mile view, climb Mt Monadnock, the most climbed Mtn in the world and only 18 miles from the house. On a clear day you can see Boston! Horses and trail rides are less than a mile away and afterwards, rest those weary muscles in the Hot Tub with the Sunsets right into shimmering Forest Lake and the crackling campfire right in view.

Winter brings cross country skiing right from the door,(10 sets of skis, 12 sizes of boots & lots of skates,snowshoes, hockey sticks and Ice fishing 'jigs' for your use!)big time downhill skiing within an hour, snowmobiling on marked trails,ice skating, sledding, ice fishing or just relaxing around the wood stove, propane fireplace, or pellet stove.

Maybe best of all, just grab a book,snuggle in a chair by the fire,or on one of the 3 outdoor decks and just let your cares drift away as the sun slowly sets out over the lake!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We used to run a Country Inn and Spa in Canada. While we certainly enjoy our homes when we can, we really have fun providing an enjoyable and relaxing time for our guests, who do seem to return year after year. We'd like you to be one of them!

Why the Owner Chose Winchester, NH, USA:
The town of Keene, NH, 9 miles north has a wide and constant variety of things to do, with it's 3 universities and very active merchants assoc. The main downtown, with 60 shops & restaurants, with no national chains is very unique. There are all the 'Big Box' stores on the outskirts of Keene. Funky Brattleboro, VT is only 14 quick highway miles away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Forest Lake is very protected from prevailing winds, so it warms quickly in the Spring and freezes quickly in the Winter. As a mostly summer seasonal lake, from early fall to late Spring, you own the lake! We have all the boats and sports equipment for a fun filled vacation any time of the year! We always have a current list of things going on in the area, restaurant menus , maps, hiking guides etc.
