Unplug and Reconnect. This private 3 bedroom, 1 full bath cottage is located on one acre of lake front property on Lake Monomonac in Southern NH in the Monadnock area. Please note 4-6 people maximum at any and all times. Not suitable for large gatherings. No pets.
This cottage boasts 200 feet of waterfront property. Enjoy swimming (to a floating raft) and kayaking (no charge 4 single kayaks, 1 tandem kayak). Two islands, Blueberry Island and Paradise Island offer plenty of places to explore by kayak. In fact, Monomonac means 'islands' and 'place' to the Nipmuc Indians who originally settled the area. There is a pedal boat for your use as well. One can fish on the large dock or 2 smaller docks. Fish on the lake include: Largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, bluegill, pumpkinseed, yellow perch and white perch.
Outside games include: badminton, volleyball, croquet or play one of the many board games and puzzles at your disposal. Or read a book in the hammock, chaise lounges, rockers, sling back chairs....
At night, enjoy the stars, or fireworks depending on the night, as you sit around the campfire.
Within a mile or two there are numerous bike paths as well as Walmart, KFC, Taco Bell, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, grocery stores, restaurants, church, library, pottery, farm stands, Cathedral of the Pines, Annette State Park, marina, golf course, etc.
Lake Monomonac is 711 acre lake and a favorite with boaters, sailors and water-skiers. There is a marina to launch your boat or jet ski. It is also fun for birders. Many varieties of birds and most noteworthy my daughter and I spotted a bald eagle above our heads as we were resting on the floating dock after a swim. We often see a blue heron on one of the docks especially in the morning.
In winter there are lake activities: snow mobiling, ice skating, cross country skiing, ice fishing, snow shoeing, etc. on the lake and a cross country ski resort, Windblown, in the next town, New Ipswich. Down hill skiing 30 minutes away at Mount Crotched. The cottage also has a hill that is great for sledding! And you can warm up by the wood stove when you come in or make a fire outside by the campfire.
Lake Monomonac covers part of the Monadnock region in New Hampshire and the Central region of Massachusetts, straddling the border between the states. It is a beautiful blending of countryside, small towns and forests with enough water for serious recreation.
Lake Monomonac is an hour and a quarter from Boston. Keene is 30 minutes away and Peterborough 20 minutes from the cottage for movies, plays, museums, live music, etc.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms 1 full bath, and washer and dryer. This 1100 square foot cottage fits 4-6 people comfortably. Maximum 4-6 occupants on premises at all times.
