Overview

About the property

Open kitchen with beautiful views, three bedrooms one bath, sleeps 6

Our house, meant for all seasons, is a waterfront vacation cottage on the shores of the tranquil Emerald Lake. You can take in the stunning lake-view from the dining area and living room through the glass sliding doors, which open to a deck with southern exposure. The deck is a wonderful place to have coffee or tea in the summer. Early in the morning, as well as during the twilight hours, you might catch the high-pitched laugh of a loon swimming through the morning mist.

In the summer, the lake is a clean and refreshing place to swim. From the deck, you can walk through the wild flowers to the water and jump right in! There is also a rowboat, kayaks, and a canoe, among other boats, that are available for a small fishing expedition or a leisurely paddle. Just a 10-15 minute walk down the road, there is also a small sandy beach that provides easy access to the water, as well as a floating dock to relax on.

In the fall, enjoy the spectacular foliage as you hike in the near by Fox State Forest. The forest and the cottage are ideal places to relax while recharging your body, mind, and soul underneath the changing fall leaves.

Winter offer activities such as ice fishing, skating on the lake, cross country skiing, or alpine skiing. Pat’s Peak and Mt. Sunapee are nearby ski-mountains with trails for all levels of alpine skiers.

In the spring, join the anglers who come from all over New England to fish for trout, pickerel, and bass. To view the spring buds growing on the trees, you can also trek the trails of the near by Fox Forest State Park or tour the panoramic Monadnock Mountain view at Kimble Hill.

The nearby town of Hillsborough has a commercial district, where shopping for groceries is made easy. While you’re there, enjoy ice cream from the classic ice cream shop, as well as fresh baked goods from Peter’s German Bakery. Feel free to explore Hillsboro historic center and its scenic surrounding. Next door, the quaint town of Henniker, home to New England College, also boasts of some fine, local restaurants.
