About Keith and Louise Donington

My wife and I have been renting out the lake house continuously since we finished the complete renovation of the property

Keith and Louise Donington purchased this house in 2004

Why Keith and Louise Donington chose Antrim

The panoramic lake view is incredible all year round, whether sunny, raining or snowing. The house is located near the end of a private dead end road so is secluded, away from traffic, with a wooded mountain behind the property .The water is clean and is not polluted with millfoil

What makes this house unique

The area is extremely beautiful, and generally uncrowded. The Monadnock Region, 'is the road less traveled' compared to other vacation areas of NH.

The beautiful and secluded private setting were the key reasons why we bought the house.

Who could ask for anything more!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent both Christmas and Thanksgiving at this lovely property and can't praise it enough! There are amenities for everyone to enjoy. We had the whole family join us for both holidays and it will always be thought of as a very special place. We were unable to take advantage of the lake activities, due to the time of year....although we did enjoy the sight of a sea plane landing on the water periodically. We loved the wild bird life that came every day to the porch. Even an Eagle visited us! Keith and Louise are the best owners you could wish for....always willing to answer questions and suggest local attractions! We did most of our own cooking, and used the BBQ even on wintery days, as the house was always so warm to come into. We visited an elk farm, had breakfast in our favourite diner in Hillsborough, and loved the restaurant/pub Tooky Mills. With a well stocked Shaw's nearby to get groceries and NE lobster....we had all we could possibly want to make our vacation the very best.

Lakeside bliss

  • 5 of 5

This property provided everything we needed to have a pleasant vacation. Plenty of room and amenities; a beautiful, clean lake; a dock for our boat; privacy; and a great price for what we got! Keith and Louise were gracious enough to help us get our boat to their home, and show us around the property at the start of our vacation-something we haven't experienced before in other rental locations. Not too far from Keene and Concord for those who need to venture out into more populated areas. We didn't feel the need, though. Lots of stairs to manage from the lake to the house, which may bother some, but great for those who want a little extra workout everyday! Franklin Pierce Lake is a clean, milfoil-free lake. Warm waters and not very busy during the week.

Best Vacation In the Fall we ever had

  • 5 of 5

When 1st pulling up to the lake our GPS in the rental said we were there, we looked to the right and there was nothing but a Johnny on the Spot we really started to freak out, but driving up the road a tad further we found the correct address and found Keith & Louise waiting to give us the tour and show us how everything worked. We spent a good week at the cabin and I'll tell you it was the most relaxing vacation we had in a long time (even better then Maui). We spent most of the time in the local area (my wife was originally from here 45 years ago) and just took in the colors of fall. I can't imagine a better place to see it, the cabin was cleaner then most hotels it had everything we needed we cooked most of our meals in the cabin including BBQ out side. I give this rental a 19 out of 10 we will be back !!

Great Lake Views

  • 5 of 5

This house on Franklin Pierce Lake was one of the nicest places our family has ever stayed. Clean, well kept with conviences provided in the house that made our week stay very comfortable. The lake views were spectacular. We very much enjoyed sipping coffee in the AM on the open deck overlooking the lake . At night we watched the lighted boats go by while relaxing on the screened in deck over looking the lake. We spent alot of time on the lake side deck and dock, as well. Swimming and fishing off the dock was great fun. We did alot of kyaking in the lake. The motor boats and wind made kayaking somewhat of a workout with the waves but it was a nice change from the quiet lakes we usually kayak on. We had a wonderful week and would absolutely recommend this lake house.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

House is as nice as shown in the pictures, clean and comfortable (even the beds). We enjoyed the lake (nice for swimming and boating), table tennis and the privacy. There are a couple of good restaurants in nearby Hillsboro,

though the house is fully outfitted to cook your own meals.

The Corner Store not far from the house serves good breakfasts and sandwiches. We definitely recommend this home away from home.
