LIKE TO HIKE AND BIKE!!! Mount Monadnock is only 5 miles from the lake and is the most climbed mountain in New England. It is an easy climb and the views are spectacular in all directions. There are quiet roads all around to bicycle on as well as bike trails in nearby Keene and Peterboro.

About Pat or Doug McCarthy

Doug & Pat and their sons built this house in the 80's and enjoyed it for many years and are now living in Harrisville just down the street from the lake. Pat the artist and Doug is a former teacher.

Perfect Week Away

  • 5 of 5
Everything you would ever want to do is right there in the house or on the lake - walking, reading (on the deck or on the dock), canoeing, relaxing. We took daily short trips to bike area trails. The pellet stove was great for cool fall mornings. People and Labrador retriever heaven.

Perfect fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect - comfortable and welcoming. The location was perfect - convenient to Keene and surrounding areas, but off the beaten path, peaceful and relaxing! I especially enjoyed kayaking on the tranquil lake. And our hosts were very gracious! Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us! I will definitely return!

AUGUST 18, 2014 - The house was exactly what we were looking for! Very clean and spacious….and beds were very comfy! Pat and Doug were delightful and wanted to ensure that our every need was met! The lake is divine - the loons singing in the morning and evening just could not be beat! The docks, canoe and boat were great to use! And when I left some jewelry there, Pat was more than happy to drive to Keene to make sure I got it! She was so willing to go the extra mile…..we will definitely rent this home again! Thanks so much for a great vacation!

Great get-away in a lovely area!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house last summer and had a wonderful time. We can't wait to come back this year and have just re-booked. The house is very comfortable and worked well for our two-year-old toddler and my husband and me. It would comfortably fit more people, too. We loved sitting on the dock at sunset and taking walks, bike rides, and runs around the area. We had some family visit for a day and had a barbecue--the house is very good for summer gatherings. The upstairs bedroom has a stunning view of the lake, and there were plenty of books and movies to pass the time if you don't feel like being outdoors. Harrisville is one of the most beautiful, quiet, classic New England small towns around. Don't miss it!
