Property description

Enjoy breathe taking views in this year round cottage on beautiful Forest Lake. We are located in the heart of Monadonock region, close to the New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont borders. It is a 90 minute drive from Hartford, Ct.

The knotty pine cottage has all the comforts of home including heat, a fire place, air conditioned, two TVs, cable, DVD player and telephone. There is a deck overlooking the lake and a huge screened-in porch with gorgeous views of the mountains. A full kitchen includes a microwave and gas stove, or if you like select from over 50 restaurants in nearby Keene. Two bedrooms upstairs with one full bed, one queen bed, and one twin bed allowing up to five people to sleep comfortably upstairs. Downstairs, two comfortable full size pull out sleeper sofas accommodating an additional four people downstairs. On the screen porch overlooking the lake, enjoy a cookout on the gas grill, or curl up with a good book. Take a drive and enjoy the fall foliage colors.

On the quiet dead end street, enjoy a nice afternoon stroll as the kids ride their bikes. Enjoy fishing for bass and trout, swimming in the 110 acre spring-fed lake off the dock, enjoy tanning on the 50ft private sandy beach, or taking a ride in the paddleboat, 3 kayaks or canoe. In the fall, the leaves changing colors on the nearby mountains are a spectacular backdrop to the crystal clear water of the lake. Enjoy snowmobiling, skiing and ice fishing in the winter. Enjoy leaf peeping, hunting and hiking in the fall. Mount Monadonock is just a short drive away and offers hiking and bike trails. Monadonack Speedway is a short drive away for a fun filled Friday or Saturday night. If shopping is more to your liking, Keene is just a short drive and offers the Colony Mill Marketplace with over 50 unique shops and plenty of antique stores and boutiques.
