Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

The “Cygnet Cottage” began as a stable in the 1890s and has been lovingly owned and updated by just two families since. Today it boasts a spacious main house and guesthouse with beautiful hardwood floors throughout, country and antique furnishings, and a state-of-the-art kitchen. Located on a protected cove of beautiful Lake Monomonack, the Cygnet Cottage offers peace and privacy plus endless opportunities for entertainment and relaxation.

The rental -- which includes both the main house and guesthouse -- is perfect for up to four families. The five bedrooms and four full baths offer comfort and privacy, while the large living areas and kitchen are perfect for entertaining large groups.

A 20-panel solar array on the guesthouse roof provides around 60% of the cottage's yearly electricity, which helps minimize the cottage's carbon footprint.

The main house has two large bedrooms upstairs, one with a king bed and one with a queen. Each has its own full bath. The guesthouse has two large bedrooms with queen beds, a smaller bedroom with two single beds, and two full bathrooms. There are also two very comfortable foldout beds that can be set up as needed in either house. Every bedroom has sweeping lake views!

The rental includes everything needed to make your stay comfortable and easy: high-speed wireless internet, fresh bath towels and sheets, beach towels, silverware and glassware, cooking implements and serving pieces, a gas grill, and washer and dryer. Also included are a ping-pong table, flat-screen TV set and DVD player, Apple TV with Netflix subscription, stereo with iPod hookup, fishing rods and equipment, board games and books galore for kids and adults. Both houses have central air conditioning, though due to the mild climate, you most likely won't need it.

The lake is steps from the house. There is a sandy beach area along shore, a 30 foot wooden dock, and a wooden swim float 100 feet offshore. There are two kayaks, two canoes, a pedal boat, a row boat, and an inflatable zodiac boat. Life jackets, paddles and all other necessary boating equipment are also provided. You can stay in the cove or head out to explore the 700-acre main lake. Native to the lake are loons, mallard ducks, beavers, painted turtles, bullfrogs, bluegills, perch, pickerel, bass and a great blue heron that frequently buzzes the house.

Feel free to email with any questions; the Cygnet Cottage is a wonderful place to vacation!

About David Lagakos

I grew up in New England, live in California, and enjoying coming back to New Hampshire as frequently as I can. There is nothing like the four wonderful seasons of New England.

David Lagakos purchased this cottage in 1989

Why David Lagakos chose Rindge

The Cygnet cottage has been in my family as long as I can remember, and we love spending as much time as we can there.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cygnet cottage is nestled in the woods right on a lake, and offers ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. It is one of the only rentals in New England that has an array of solar panels that offset most of the annual electricity usage. It is conveniently located at around 2 hours to Boston and roughly 5 hours to New York City.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG! What an amazing place. Both houses are beautiful (I want to live there). The central air was a life saver since I think we were there during the hottest week ever. There was room enough for everyone and plenty of space so we weren't on top of each other. All the bedrooms were a good size. Love the huge table where we ate and played countless games. Everything we could possibly need was there. It was so nice to have the sheets, towels and even beach towels provided. I can't say enough good things about this place. The owner was great to work with. Tara is amazing and does a great job maintaining the houses. We absolutely loved our vacation thanks to this wonderful place!! Plan to return next year and years to come!! Thank you!

Beautiful Lake Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful time here! The house itself is beautiful, spacious, and fully-stocked with all the amenities you could want! And the lake was just amazing! The house was equipped with canoes, paddle boats,fishing poles, and a private dock, so there was every kind of activity for all ages. We would definitely want to come back! Thanks again for the wonderful stay!!

beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this spacious lake house. We had the quiet cove all to ourselves. It is the perfect place for children and adults. Our grandchildren loved the sandy beach and the paddle boat and my sons were able to fish. The house was very clean, thanks to Tara who was such a help. We loved our vacation and would recommend this lake house to all.
