About Katey & Bruce Adams

My husband and I live in the area and have enjoyed time on the lake for many years. We own several other rental properties and recently purchased this property because it offers the ultimate lakeside vacation spot that people are looking to enjoy during those hot summer months.

Katey & Bruce Adams purchased this house in 2014

Why Katey & Bruce Adams chose Monadnock Region

This property has been passed down through family generations for over 100 years. Recently we had the opportunity to purchase it. So often people express to us that they would love to spend time at the lake during those hot summer months. This property is the perfect spot for families to be able to have their own ultimate lakeside vacation. It's family fun and memories that last a lifetime.

What makes this house unique

This property is in the quaint & historic town of Harrisville, it offers a true country feel with it's ultimate location on the lake. You don't have to cross a road, climb the stair, or scale a rocky hill side to get to the water ~ It's right there out the big sliding glass doors. From the large deck you can enjoy a rest in the hammock or family BBQ dinners in one beautiful view your over looking it all, the large flat yard, over 150 feet of private frontage, the dock, the floating raft, and just wait till you see the sunsets!! Your family will fall in love with this spot too.

Family Fun! New Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

First of All Katey & BJ were very accommodating. We requested a Friday to Friday rental and she got back to us right away.

The property was more than perfect for our 3 families of 6 adults and 3 children (9,10,11) and visiting toddlers and Grand Parents.

We put the kid's up in the loft, which was a great choice. They went from kick ball in the yard, to taking turns peddling the paddle boat, to pushing each other off the swim platform then lounging in the loft playing board games. Loved it!

The 3 bedrooms on the first level were more than enough. Nice large closets and beautiful dressers to actually unpack and hide our luggage. Felt like home.

We didn't organize anything but what to make for dinner and who is going kayaking with who. Honestly we did not even go to town for a dinner outing. Loved being at the lake.

The kitchen set up was perfect for our family of rotating chef's for each night. My brother in law wanted to take the huge grill home with him. It was perfect!

We ended each evening with a fire in the fire pit. Watching the kids last swim for the night and the sunset.

Thank you Katey and BJ for the perfect setting for our family. Can't wait to see you again next year!

ANOTHER PERFECT WEEK AT JuJu'S PLACE

  • 5 of 5

Mother Nature cooperated with the weather this year as we enjoyed warmer days and evenings at JuJu's place. This is our second year at this beautiful lake side home and the peace and tranquility of the surroundings did not disappoint. It was another perfect week. The owners are gracious and accommodating...this year we enjoyed the company of our young grandson and upon our arrival we were surprised to find age appropriate toys, a portable high chair and a gate that came in handy for his newly discovered ability to climb! The fishing here at this lake is fabulous. The "fishermen" earned their bragging rights with the abundance of huge fish being caught. Night time fireworks over the lake created a dazzling dance of color reflecting on the dark water. This lake side home has all the conveniences of being home and more! Beautiful furnishings, well stocked kitchen with updated appliances, comfortable, spacious bedrooms and a laundry room are some of the offerings at JuJu's place. We did not want the week to end, but we are so looking forward to our return next year.

Great memories made here!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had never been to New Hampshire before and enjoyed staying at JuJus as our first experience. We had 4 adults and 3 kids with us and had plenty of room and activities to do. Loved how this place had all the comforts of home, beds were comfortable (especially the king) kitchen was stocked well. My kids loved having the kayaks, paddle boat and row boats to use at their leisure (as did the adults). Awesome to be able to fish off the dock and catch bluegill! The fire pit, swing and chairs by the lake were great. Very clean, updated and comfortable home to spend a week. Our only complaints were no A/C, it was very warm the week we stayed but luckily had brought fans!! Also the wifi was awful. Other than that it was perfect. Katey and BJ (owners) made sure to check in to make sure our stay was going well.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a beautiful week in the fall with our two daughters at JuJu's Place. We love Harrisville and were so happy to find this wonderful house. The house has been recently renovated and we found it to be tasteful, comfortable, and clean. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need in a week and the Harrisville Store is a great place to visit to check out. We really enjoyed the yard games and all of the boats/kayaks. My daughters were particularly fond of the paddle boat and my husband enjoyed fishing. The lake itself is beautiful and the foliage was spectacular. We were happy to share the lake with the loons and even a bald eagle that we saw on three occasions. We loved our vacation and look forward to returning often.

Perfect location to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 days at JuJu's Place for a Girls' Weekend and it was perfect for us. Coffee on the deck overlooking the water, watching the loons and a wonderful, well-stocked kitchen (I loved the knives so much I went out and bought myself a matching set!). All in all, a fantastic and perfect place for relaxation.

Once the girls left, my husband and two children came for the final 5 days. Our kids loved being able to fish off the dock, take off in the paddle boat or kayaks, swim, build fairy houses...and we loved being able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The surroundings are very quiet and often feels as though you are on your own private lake! The house has been newly renovated and it was very clean and well decorated - however, the weather was so nice we were hardly in the house at all!

Katey and BJ (the owners) were fantastic and excellent to deal with. We didn't venture far from our lakeside paradise but did take one afternoon to journey up to the Harrisville General Store - definitely worth checking out.

Stop looking and stay at JuJu's Place! Experience your own piece of summertime heaven in beautiful NH!

Incredible relaxing get away!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Harrisville for years and are so glad we found JuJu's Place. The home has been updated with highend modern conveniences; no need to bring anything except the people you want to relax and spend quality time with. The home is right on the lake but also has a spacious yard for playing lawn games, it is usually very hard to find such a perfect location that offers both. Truly this home offers something for everyone in the family. We cannot wait to go back and plan on making it a yearly tradition!!

When you come stay at the lake you will enjoy being right on the water, beautiful Lake Skatutakee is just steps from your door. You can enjoy being right on the water in a wide variety of ways, kayaking, swim to the raft, take a paddle boat ride. The large deck over looks in all while you BBQ or read a book in the hammock. You can also enjoy great nature walks, hike the very well known Mount Monadnock, The second most hiked mountain in the world. Or start off smaller at Pack Mount Monadnock. There are numerous outdoor activities and things to see. You will notice that the area is not commercialized, Harrisville is a very quaint and historic town. Relax with the locals who enjoy the slower pace of country living. As soon as you drive through the town you will see all the beautiful brick yarn mill buildings, some still open today. The wonderful General store, that you should definitely stop into for lunch or if you need to pickup a few things for your stay. You will notice the beauty of a few different bodies of water in the area, Harrisville has seven different bodies of water. The setting is all very country and has many unique places to see and things to do. Surrounded by the towns of Dublin, Peterborough & Keene, venturing to these nearby towns offers even more to do during your stay. Lots of boutique shops, homemade and homegrown goods to offer, wonderful restaurants of all varieties. Most places you will venture to are only 5-20minutes away. For children there is The Friendly Farm just down the road, this is a wonderful hands on farm for kids and families. Kimball's homemade ice cream farm is in Jaffery, a drive worth taking for an afternoon treat or their famous lobster roll. There are many small groceries and farms that you can stop into and pickup locally grown, organic meats and produces and goods, they are really delicious and a treat to have so close by. Harrisville offers it's own farmers market, weekly. Throughout the summer there are different 'old home days' for the small towns and a Cheshire Fair in late July/early August. For those who have a flare for the vintage you can explore some great Antique shops nearby, both in Keene and in Peterborough. All of these surrounding towns have many locally owned restaurants, so many are worth the stop. We provide a list of them for you at the lake. Being just a short drive to Keene you also have all the conveniences of a larger town for shopping of bigger needs, Chain stores and restaurants, movie theaters, bowling, fitness gyms, and day spas. Downtown Keene or the Colony Mill have unique shops and restaurants, fun to walk and window shop them all. While your there if the kids need an activity too, the Colony Mill has a great children's museum and U-bounce for kids, and it's own local brewery. For those that are visiting the area all of these towns have great things to offer, but you will truly enjoy getting back to the lake, as this is where the real vacation attractions are.
