Your secluded level beachfront with dock and big floating swim platform makes it very easy to start your vacation explorations.

After swimming, fishing, and exploring with the big canoe,3 kayaks, 4 person paddleboat and other fun toys, it will be the perfect end to the day to sit on the expansive deck, grill dinner, take a soak in the hot tub, and renew relationships with friends and family.

Rockwood Pond has well spaced seasonal homes on only one half of it's almost two mile length. From Sept to June only 5 homes are occupied and in the summer the other 20 are primarily used on weekends only.
Half of the Lake is a 'Rails To Trails' pathway for walking, bike riding, nature watching,picking blackberries, or hiking over to Mt. Monadnock, the most climbed mountain in the world, for a 100 mile view to downtown Boston.
The Changing of the Seasons from late spring has abundant strawberries, the summer brings raspberries and big blackberries and as you head to fall, the loads of plump blueberries will amaze you. There are all sorts of festivals, antique shows, theatre in nearby Peterborough, NH (The 'Our Town' of Thornton Wilder) and special presentations at the Fitzwilliam Museum which is housed in the old town doctors home, unchanged for over 150 years. Keene, about 12 miles away has a very active downtown with about 70 shops , restaurants, concert hall etc, all locally owned and the national chains on the outskirts. 6 miles away in Rindge you can get Walmart, etc in Sales Tax Free NH !
After your time in this quiet corner of Southern New Hampshire, you head home refreshed, renewed and dreaming of your next visit!!
