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.

Both retired and then decided we needed to work to keep busy so we both are working part time!

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.

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!

Beautiful setting - Warm and cosy home

  • 5 of 5
Went to book a week for this upcoming season and realized we had not written a review of our last stay.
We were in the throws of moving and need a place to relax and enjoy life and we found it with this rental. The home is so inviting. Pat and Doug were wonderful; helpful in their knowledge of the area and had supplied the home with everything we would need.
This was a hioliday week-end but it wasn't crazy - just full of joy.
We will return as long as the home is available.

Nice house....

  • 2 of 5
House was great. Loved the deck. When inquiring about renting this home I asked if there was a sandy beach on/near the property for swimming and was told yes, and that it's not deep. There was about 2 feet of sand, and once you go past your ankles it's all muck and rocks. We basically had to float out on tubes very carefully, never touch the bottom, and hope we didn't get scraped by the rocks. The first day there, one of the owners (the wife), felt the need to come by and complain to us about the previous renters, how much toilet paper they used, how many beer cans they put in the recycle bag, and actually came by and told the woman she was using the wrong towels at the water. Needless to say, this lead to a very tense first few days, as we were visited 3 times, was told the septic system was poor so that the one extra person I had was a problem. Yes, I said 5 people were coming and i had a 6th for 3 days, but had no idea that the reason they stated no more than 5 people was because of a septic system issue....there was plenty of space for all to sleep inside...ps..if your kids like to tent, that's a no-no too. If you like a busy body in your face on your vacation, this is the place for you!! .p.s....the husband is very nice..he should do all the dealings with people...he has a much nicer demeanor.

Owner's Response: We are glad that these guests enjoyed the house and deck as well as boating in our kayak, canoe and row boat.
It was unfortunate that they were the first guests we've had that did not appreciate the limitations of the septic system and the restrictions to altering of lakeshore properties.
Having a house on a lake in New Hampshire is a privilege and we try not take it for granted and preserve the water and land the best we can. Lake Skatutakee is a beautiful clear lake, wonderful for swimming, fishing and boating. A lake we want people to enjoy for years to come!
