A twenty foot deck, with a screened porch at one end, faces the lake, which is less than 30 feet away. Sliding glass doors open out to the deck from the large living room, with fieldstone fireplace.
The master bedroom has a kingsized bed, and walk in closet. One bedroom with twin beds also has a loft that children love (ages 5-12) as it's reached by a ladder, and is a great private space. Another bedroom in the cabin has one twin, and twin sized bunk beds. An outbuilding has twin beds and its own front porch.
The dock holds several deck chairs, and a huge rock off shore makes a great jumping off spot. There is also a float. The lake is three miles long, and about 1/2 mile across at the Nelson end.
One third of the shoreline of this lake is in conservation land, and much of the rest is still underveloped, so it is quiet, and water is chrystal clear.
Besides swimming and boating, the cottage is located in a marvelous area for all sorts of cultural events and entertainment - The Peterborough Players have great performances, there are free concerts at Apple Hill and Monadnock Music offers concerts in local churches and performances in Peterborough. Children love the Friendly Farm just down the road. Harrisville Designs offers weaving and other classes. The Sharon Art Center also offers classes. There's always the climb up Mt. Monadnock, where you can see the ski scrapers of Boston. The longest running contra dance in New England happens in Nelson every Monday night. Restaurants in the area are excellent, some with music special nights.
