Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The cottage provides guests with 250 feet of private shoreline and spectacular sunsets. A swimmer's delight, Lake Spofford received the State's highest rating for clean water in 2005. Sitting on the south shore of the lake, it offers terrific sunfish and bass fishing right off the dock. It's a great lake for other watersports including boating, sailing, canoeing, and paddleboating. Boats can be moored. There are a number of hiking, cycling, mountain biking and golfing opportunities within minutes. Many charming boutiques and fine dining opportunities in nearby Keene and Brattleboro.

The property sits on an small peninsula, but the natural foliage makes it uniquely secluded from the other properties on the lake. It offers both historic charm and modern amenities such as wireless internet.

Spofford is nine miles east of Brattleboro, Vermont and nine miles west of Keene, New Hampshire. The cottage was built by a prominent physician and his wife in the mid 1930s and has stayed in the family ever since. Noted local artist, Albert Quigley, painted magnificent murals depicting the local area found throughout the upper level.

Great for summer getaways!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The view was breathtaking. We went swimming every day. Kayaking and canoeing were a blast! The trees create a nice private refuge for a vacation. Much better than touristy vacation spots. Very relaxing yet fun! The porch was nice for cocktail hour. There so many games to play, such as corn hole/bags. It was a great place to have family time together. The house itself looks really amazing with all the antiques and paintings. A bonfire for s'mores is always fun.
