About the owner: This was our personal home and it has been a true labor of love refining and finishing every aspect of it. We lived here for many years and then relocated to Southern NH due to work requirements. Although we spend less time here now - we still enjoy it tremendously as a perfect get-away. We hope you enjoy the same pleasures, and if you have any questions, please ask! We are constantly looking to improve the property and welcome your input!
Why the Owner Chose Silver Lake, Madison, NH, USA:
This is a very well maintained, thoughtfully decorated home that offers plenty of room for everyone to have privacy and time to play, read, relax or store their gear for out-door adventure. It is a perfect get-away to spend time with family or head out to the myriad of near-by activities from skiing, snowshoeing, ice-fishing and snow-mobiling to swimming, biking and kayaking.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is so easy to enjoy a wide variety of activities from here, but staying in to relax and unwind in the comfortable media room, or by the fire pit, or taking a nature walk or hike from your front door is a fantastic option as well. Your best vacation awaits you here!
