About the property

4 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Lakefront Cottage; Sleeps 8

Location: Historic, spring-fed Spofford Lake is located 9 miles west of Keene, NH and 7 miles east of Brattleboro, VT, along Rt 9 & Rt 63, in the Monadnock Region. Lake Spofford received the State’s highest rating for clean water in 2005.

Accommodations: Grey Rustic Victorian lakefront cottage on the west shore of Lake Spofford with 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom (sleeps 4-8). The cottage is heated by a propane log stove in front of the old brick fireplace and area space heaters, as needed.

Wonderful sunset views of the lake are obtained from the screened Victorian porch running along the front and south side of the cottage.

Kitchen w/double sink, dishwasher, gas range, refrigerator and microwave. Deck with gas grill located at side of cottage outside of front room door.

Bathroom located on second floor has a shower, sink w/vanity and toilet. Toilet is on a tight tank with a tank alarm. Wash machine and dryer located in kitchen; country plumbing limits wash machine to 2 loads a day. Propane hot-water heater.

Dining room located between living room and kitchen. Desk w/broadband hookup located in front room. Staircase to second floor located between Dining room and Front room. Stairs are steep.

Cable TV/DVD player on one side of front room. Fireplace w/propane heater located in center of room.

2 doors from Front room lead on to screened porch on front and side of cottage. Porch is furnished with antique rockers and white wicker furniture on one side and patio table on the other side.

4 bedrooms located upstairs. 1 queen bed and 3 double beds. 2 upstairs bedrooms are rustic, open to the rafters.

Private, 50 foot beach located in front of cottage across Rt. 63. The road runs between the row of cottages and the shore at this point. Private dock at beachfront will accommodate motor boat(s) and other craft. Lake Spofford is known for its Bass and Great Northern Pike fishing. Swimming in the crystal clear water is wonderful. Pierce Island State Park, with abundant blueberry bushes, is located 800 feet off of the dock. 2 kayaks available for use, as well as a paddle-boat.

Parking for one car is located in front of the cottage across the road above the waterfront; parking for several more is located in the driveway area behind cottage. Boat trailer parking is possible off of rear driveway.

Linens and towels are supplied; we ask that they be left clean.

No smoking; pets are OK with pet deposit. Children are OK but must be supervised due to the road in front, the lake and the antiques. It is not OK to flush diapers due to the country plumbing.

Due to the close proximity of neighboring cottages, we would request that noise be kept to a minimum; i.e. please do not play loud music.

There is no telephone at the cottage. The owners use cell phones.

About Lyle Foley

Lyle Foley purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Lyle Foley chose New Hampshire

This cottage has land that is contiguous to my parent's cottage located two doors away. This row of Victorian Cottages all have 50 feet of frontage on Lake Spofford and spectacular lake views from their Victorian Front Porches.

What makes this cottage unique

50 feet of private waterfront, private dock, wonderful view of lake from front porch.

This cottage lot is the largest in the neighborhood and has ample parking for cars and large boat trailers.
