Fitzwilliam House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

1st week of summer 6/22-28 still available! Book now for Fall Foliage!

Relax in peaceful private comfort on 1.5 acres on serene 110 acre Rockwood Pond. The view out the full length deck across the lake will make it easy to fully enjoy the Great Room with cathedral ceilings, wood stove, new appliances and lots of seating and the private Hot Tub under the stars.

3 cozy bedrooms, (Queen) (Queen and single) and Expansive Family size sleeping loft/entertainment center with a King, 2 single beds,and hideabed , along with Two renovated full bathrooms, will accommodate all the family after a fun filled day around serene Rockwood Pond. So very private and yet only 2 miles from the Town Green in so typically New England Fitzwilliam, NH.

The private road to a Classic Saltbox style home with all the modern conveniences is very secluded, you can't see another home from the house or while enjoying the Hot Tub overlooking the Lake open from May to Halloween!

Step into your vacation retreat, drop your bags and gaze out the wall of glass to crystal clear Rockwood Pond down the gently sloping lawn and pathways with numerous wildflowers, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry and strawberry bushes galore. Your secluded level beachfront with dock and big floating swim platform makes it very easy to start your vacation explorations. There are very interesting rock formations from an old granite quarry that closed 100 years ago, or have a campfire in the fireplace of the old Stone Cutters cottage by the lake with our abundant firewood.

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.

Enjoy the games, current books, magazines, DVD library. It's great for a family with young children with a full ent center with 2 TVs, VCR,DVDS, and Broadband Wireless DSL computer with printer and speakers.

The full modern high ceiling sunny lower level has a new full Bathroom, Ping Pong table, Pool Table, Full sized poker table, another Double & Single bed, fishing gear, games, life jackets, winter sports equip, art supplies and other fun things to do.

In the 2 car garage are adult and kids bikes, strollers, kids cars & toys, badminton, volleyball, soccer,croquet and other sporting equpment.

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!!

PERFECT GETAWAY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The owners are easy to work with, and when they say bring just clothes, food and linens they mean it. Everything else is provided.
Our family of 7 (ages 24 to 87) biked, kayaked, played board games and pool, had a campfire, relaxed in the hot tub, enjoyed reading the 'coffee table' books and nature guides, ate on the deck, and slept well in comfortable beds.
This was our 2nd year renting this house and we want to go back. The owners truly created an atmosphere of comfort and privacy!

WONDERFUL HOME BASE DURING ANTIOCH GRADUATION CEREMONY!

  • 4 of 5
The owners are ultra friendly, responsive and kind -- and this was the perfect home for us while we were in NH for a graduation at Antioch. Having a beautiful spot to relax, sit by a bonfire, gaze at the lake and cook our own meals was wonderful - and to be able to bring our 2 dogs was a huge perk.

Will definitely come back!

ROCKWOOD POND HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home on Rockwood Pond is beautiful ! We rented it for Keene State College graduation weekend and it was a perfect place. Beautiful location, had everything you need, and was very comfortable for several family members (and our yellow lab!).

GREAT SPOT FOR A WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I visited the Forest Lake property for a low-key bachelorette party in June. The house is spacious, well-equipped and very comfortable. The deck behind the house is fabulous and the dock by the water was perfect for lounging. We ran into Paul and Anne at the end of the weekend and they were incredibly friendly and gracious. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable weekend on a lake.

WONDER THANKSGIVING

  • 4 of 5
Excellent location and we all enjoyed this lovely home and being together. A plus was the wonderful supply of stainless cookware. As our granddaughter has Celiac disease and both her and I are gluten free. We were able to prepare a great Thanksgiving day meal. Beds were very comfortable and the location is quiet and beautiful. The college age kids enjoyed the hot tub.

PERFECT WEEKEND STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Paul & Anne have an absolutely lovely home just under 2hrs away from Boston. The location was fantastic - secluded but still close enough to Boston that it wasn't too long of a trip. We had a group of 9 of us staying there and there was plenty of space, more than enough beds, and the kitchen was big enough to cater to a large group. We held a lovely "Friendsgiving" weekend there and managed to cook a full Thanksgiving dinner (14 lb Turkey & 6-7 sides) in the kitchen! The hot tub is also fantastic - particularly when the sky is clear and you can see all the stars at night, truly beautiful. Other highlights for us were the wood-stove in the living room which heats up the house in a matter of minutes & the pool table downstairs. Unfortunately it was a bit cold to spend much time outdoors but the lake is also very very easily accessible down a little path for about 30 seconds as a quick 15-minute walk over there proved. Just a bit cold in late November! The house was also extremely comfortable and Paul & Anne were very welcoming (they left us a welcome note, called upon arrival to check that everything was going well, and immediately called back when I reached out with a few questions). All in all - a truly PERFECT stay! I would recommend it to anyone!
