About Si

As a U.S. Foreign Service family often working overseas, we love to return to the lake in New Hampshire as often as possible.

Si purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Si chose Monadnock Region

After renting summer homes in southern New Hampshire for years, we finaly bought our own and turned it into the place we would want to rent. We hope you'll find living on the lake as relaxing as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

The 180 degree view of hills and trees across the lake from our front deck and nearly all the rooms makes doing a lot, or nothing, equally worthwhile.

Multiple kayaks, canoe and clean modern life vests were enjoyed. Easy entry into the water and shallowness would make this an ideal spot for youngsters to spend hours. Morning sun for July, but tall trees shaded in afternoon private beach and deck for the most part- so this encouraged us to venture out on rafts or boating during those times where the venturing was pleasant and carefree! We had some cool cloudy weather so thankfully we were warned to pack sweatshirts cuz we certainly needed them, and when it was sunny the deck blazed us with hot early sun.

We had a very peaceful and relaxing week. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The lake during the week was quiet and great for kayaking. Loved the raspberries!

This property is lovely, clean, and nicely laid out, with lake views from the living room, kitchen, dining room, and upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen is updated and enjoyable to cook in. The canoe and kayaks are a definite plus. The only drawback, for those who are addicted to the internet, is that the wi fi connection is not good. But then, on a lake vacation, who cares?

Comfortable lakeside home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

From the serene combination dining room/library with a gorgeous lake-view to the modern well-appointed and equipped kitchen to the cozy, comfortable beds to the quiet, private beach with great swimming, sunning, this was, for me, the 'whole package'. We will be back.

Very much enjoyed our week at this pretty property. The cottage cottage was well equipped with everything we needed and also nicely decorated, updated and plenty big for 5 adults. Highland Lake was great! Mostly quiet on our end with occasional boaters. We did most of our shopping in Keane, as we were visiting people in the area. Highly recommend this cute town! Owner Simon was excellent and very prompt replying to my inquiries. Even made a trip into Burlington to pick up some Headdy Topper! Well worth the trip!

We fell in love with the whole package!! The house was very nice and was equipped with all the necessary things and more. The lake was very peaceful and scenic. The water temperature is perfect for swimming. The view from the house across the lake is wooded without houses - you could almost convince yourself that the lake was yours only!! We did our shopping, in Hillsboro, at Shaws Market which was expensive. However, the market was large and the selection was quite nice. There's a country store closer to the house that has s small deli and a few items so do all your shopping at once because you won't want to leave - we didn't !!
