Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Granite Lake is known throughout its region for its incredible

beauty and crystal clear waters. The lake ranks consistently as

one of the top two or three in the state in its water purity which

is rated by the State each year. It is ideal for swimming and

boating and offers excellent fishing of nearly all varieties

of native fish including bass and trout.

Granite Lake is conveniently located just 10 minutes from

Keene, NH, which is quite possibly the most attractive small

city in New England, offering fine restaurants, antique shops,

excellent shopping, numerous cultural attractions and much more.

This rustic knotty pine cottage is situated directly on the

lake near the center of the village of Munsonville, which is

part of the small town of Nelson, NH. The front of the cottage,

composed entirely of paned windows, is only a yard or two from

the water. There is a sandy bottom in the lake in front of the

cottage which makes it great for the kids (and adults too!).

There is a dock for sunning or tying up your boat which can be

launched only a few dozen yards up the road where there is a

paved public launching area. If you don’t have a boat, in the

cottage garage, you’ll find an assortment of small water craft

including a canoe, a kayak and a rowboat.

The cottage itself consists of a large great room, a master

bedroom with two standard double beds, and a small bedroom

with one double bed. There is a half bath with shower, and a

galley style kitchen.

There is also a screen porch facing the lake, a great place

to sip your morning coffee. Better yet, go down and sit on

the dock and watch for loons – they often pass right in front

of the cottage.

After a quick swim, run or bike ride around the lake (its

almost a perfect 5K), jump in the canoe and row out to

the island which is about a mile across the lake, a

favorite local picnic spot! In the afternoon, how about a

drive over to nearby Mount Monadnock, the most climbed

mountain in America. On the way home, stop by the Peterboro

Basket Company factory outlet in neighboring Peterboro.

After dinner, end the day by attending a concert at the

Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music which is just a five

minute drive from the cottage in Sullivan, NH -- tickets,

just $10!

Ideal cottage on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5
We LOVE the cottage, it was exactly what we were looking for and we had absolutely ideal weather. We had a great experience, we canoed, climbed Mt. Monadnock, picked blueberries at Pitcher Mtn, fished, and listened to the local loon at night. I managed to get a picture of the loon one day as he was fishing right in front of the cottage. The lake area in front of the cottage was perfect for our kids who are 7, 6, and 2 as it is sandy and gently sloping, so they could jump off the dock, spash and play, and try to catch minnows. Judi and Jocelyn were great to deal with, they made sure we had everything we needed.
