Cozy, Wooded, Waterfront, Mountain View Cabin on Silver Lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Nature lovers delight! Secluded cabin, on a peninsula, on Silver Lake, at the foot of Mt. Monadnock. We get both morning or afternoon sun on each dock. One dock overlooks the entire lake and has a clear view Mt. Monadnock, and our other dock is in a quiet, private cove with wildlife all around. The peninsula is called Blueberry Point. It is covered with blueberry bushes, and in late July and early August the bushes drip with native blueberries. Bordering our property are well marked Audubon trails and quiet dirt roads. The cabin was built in 1948 and has a beautiful fieldstone fireplace, 2 screened-in porches, and all the basic amenities. Come share our little bit of paradise, listen to the loons and water lapping, as you relax with a good book in the hammock, or take a day in nearby Peterborough or Keene where you will enjoy great restaurants and shopping... with lots of antiquing! Visit the historical town of Harrisville only 5 min. away with a traditional general store with great coffee, baked goods, soups, sandwiches and the New York Times! Take the kids to The Friendly Farm and let them nurse a newborn sheep and feed the goats, then off to mini golf and ice cream. For an active day, climb majestic Mt. Monadnock. Our renters always come back for the peacefulness that seems to balance their lives and give them perspective after a much needed vacation.

About The Owner

My wife and I, with 2 wonderful children, enjoy the outdoors, fishing and spending time at the lake. My grandfather built this cabin in 1948 and I am proud to protect, maintain and continue his legacy with my brother and Aunt. This is a truly special place and we hope you enjoy and respect the experience together at our family retreat.

Classic New England Lakeside Experience.

  • 5 of 5

Pristine lake with mountain backdrop. Pine and white cedar rustic, well appointed cottage. Abundent wildlife (we saw black bear, bald eagle, loons and more loons. Enjoy all this with the kayaks, paddle board and canoe provided in the boat house. You could spend all your time just enjoying this. This cottage is also near several nice towns with great shopping and restaurant such as Keene, Peterborough and Brattleboro. All in all a wonderful getaway!

Unique spot on a beautiful NH lake

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our week spent on Silver Lake. The weather was ideal starting with record high heat and ending with early September-like temperatures. We stayed mostly on the point with lots of time in or on the water. Other highlights: a great concert at Apple Hill, watching fireworks over the lake, a fun evening at Peterborough’s “First Friday”, and a walking tour of Harrisville.

So great for so many reasons!

  • 5 of 5

Nicest lot on the lake! This cabin sits out on a point with water on 3 sides. No neighbors in sight, very private. I felt like I was camping on the waterfront with the comfort of a cabin.... it felt very "Thoreau" like. We went in September when the blueberries were done, but there was plenty to do with the fully stocked boathouse and 2 docks. The lake is very quiet in September, so it was nice to do nothing at all and just watch the wildlife, the water and the woods. The outdoor shower was THE BEST!! Cabin is small, just how we wanted it, rustic, and very well stocked in the kitchen, tons of firewood, and lots of good books and games. We enjoyed the coziness and authenticity of the cabin. A nice little photo book explains the history and making of the cabin in 1947. I loved the "Blueberry Tunnel" to the front door! Owners were great to work with and very easy to reach. We will definitely be back year after year.

Quiet, peaceful and restful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our week on Silver Lake. The peace and quiet and beauty of the area were so refreshing. Hearing the loons, playing cribbage, sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch looking at the water, discovering the history of this lovely family cabin...all made for a wonderful time away! Thank you for sharing this beautiful place!
