About Karen Hutchins-Keim

I am an archaeologist living in Philadelphia, PA with my husband (also an archaeologist) and our dog Genesis.

Karen Hutchins-Keim purchased this cottage in 1940

Why Karen Hutchins-Keim chose Tuftonboro

My grandmother purchased the land where our rental property is now in 1940 from a neighbor. There she built, often with her own two hands, one of the houses on the property with wood from trees felled during the 1938 hurricane that hit New England. She passed away in 2008, but the home remains a central feature of our family. I, my sister, and four cousins have been coming to 'the lake' for our entire lives and my aunt even lives down the road.

Rustic Charm

  • 5 of 5

If you like being away from in it all and in the woods on the lake, then this is the place for you. A rustic cabin awaits you with the windows and deck facing to the West to watch the beautiful sunsets.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this rustic little cabin! Sure, it’s not the Hilton, but it was cute, clean, comfortable, and had all of the necessary amenities – including pretty good WiFi. But once you see the dock, you’ll forget all about your phone and laptop. The sunset was stunning, the stars were dazzling, and the water was perfect. It’s rocky getting in, but that’s why they call it the Granite State. We saw some fantastic wildlife including a loon singing his mating call at night and four deer by the cars one morning. We had no problems with bugs except for normal NH mosquitos at dusk and the occasional stray moth inside the cabin. We planned to see several attractions in town, but had so much fun that we only went there for two of the days of our stay. This is the kind of place where you can go to really relax – more than that, it’s the kind of place that can recharge your soul. It would be perfect for anyone seeking some solace and inspiration from nature, from writers to artists and everyone in between. The owners are very friendly and quick to answer questions. We would love to come back!

A perfect lake getaway without any frills.

  • 4 of 5

We felt tucked away in nature, having just enough amenities to make our stay comfortable. Our favorite memories will be eating breakfast on the deck just outside the cottage looking down through the woods at the lake and enjoying the most spectacular sunsets from the deck a short distance down by the edge of the lake. We also loved being close enough to the water to hear the waves lapping against the shore as we went to sleep! This was a totally relaxing environment for a vacation.
