About Pat or Doug McCarthy

Doug & Pat and their sons built this house in the 80's and enjoyed it for many years and are now living in Harrisville just down the street from the lake. Pat the artist and Doug is a former teacher.

Both retired now and are busy with gardening and trying to enjoy life on the easy side!

What makes this house unique

This house has so many wonderful memories for the entire family from fishing from the docks to just sitting on the deck and enjoying the fantastic views of the water and having great barbecues on the deck. And watching our grandchildren enjoy the beach and lake as well. We designed the house so you can see the water from almost every room in the house... so you won't miss anything on the water!

Fall in New Hampshire

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in October to do some hiking and enjoy the fall colors. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The views were amazing overlooking the lake.

The master bed was super supportive, not always the case in rentals! Pat and Doug were very accommodating from the beginning to the end of our stay. We would recommend and return in future.

Property was clean, comfy and just as described. Right by the lake on a quiet road

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were friendly and accommodating. They offered to come show us everything and made sure we were comfortable. Their home was a restful place for a week-long retreat.

Enjoyed the Location

  • 3 of 5

You can't beat the lakeside location: away from it all, yet close enough to easily venture into small picturesque towns like Peterborough and Keene. This is just what we needed to escape the stress of our South Florida hurricane season.

The hosts were lovely and attentive.

Had the furniture been comfortable we would have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and rated this home higher. The home needs to be updated. Also, be aware that the home uses well water and the internet can stop working, which was not a major problem for us, but could be for some people...

Thank You

A Place of Peace

  • 5 of 5

Pat is a great innkeeper. She bent over backward to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The house is well designed and functional. The view of the lake is superlative -- early morning sunrises, evening sunsets and occasional fog all cast their distinctive spells. Couple the spectacular sights with the smells of chicken or salmon sizzling off the grill and the songs of the birds floating from the trees, and what do you have? A place of peace. We shall return.
