In the fall, a short drive away, there is car racing at Monadonock Speedway, for a fun filled Saturday or Sunday night along with a dirt bike Speedpark. The leaves changing colors on the nearby mountains are a spectacular backdrop to the crystal clear water of the lake. Enjoy a romantic evening in front of the roaring fireplace. Snowmobiling, and ice fishing in the winter. Enjoy leaf peeping, hunting and hiking in the fall. Mount Monadonock is just a short drive away and offers hiking and bike trails.

Perfect long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed Sandra's cottage, it had everything we needed, from a fully stocked kitchen, to outdoor activities! We docked our boat and went on daily rides on the gorgeous lake, kayaked, canoed, swam, grilled, it was awesome!

Location was very convenient, a little under an hour drive from where we live, we will definitely return! Sandra was easy to get a hold of, and was able to accommodate our needs no problem.

Thank you Sandra!

Peaceful .... will return.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable cabin on Forest Lake with a beautiful view of the sunrise, birds and fish jumping on the lake. The cabin had plenty of room for five adults and two large dogs. Very nice screened porch and dog run outside. Kayaks and canoe available on the lake. The dock was a place for great fishing. Dogs were able to swim, firepit on the beach, plenty of wood available on site. Safe and quiet area in Winchester NH with a short ride to Brattleboro, VT.

Great cabin with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

Sandra was kind to accomodate my family when we needed a place to stay. The cabin is located right on the lake. The view is spectaclar. Sandra is a great hostess and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay.

The location is great because it is 15 minutes from Keene, NH which has so many restaurants to choose from and they are all excellent.

I highly recommend this cabin to everyone and would rent again from Sandra with no hesitations.
