STUNNING 4 SEASON LAKEFRONT WITH HOT TUB!

Winchester House Rental Photos and Description

Fun Private Luxury Home Available long term also!

Book now for Fall Foliage and Festival time!

A Stunning Lakefront home on crystal clear,sandy bottomed, 110 acre Forest Lake at the junction of NH,VT,& MA will be your long awaited retreat in the whispering pines, shimmering lakes, and beautiful foliage of New Hampshire. Bring the kids & dogs or just enjoy by yourselves. The Great room with 25' high natural pine cathedral ceiling, skylights, entertainment center and fireplace is comfortably, casually, and uniquely furnished. Fall Foliage time is spectacular, both around the lake and on the many scenic drives nearby.

It looks out over the pristine Forest Lake that lends itself to a memorable vacation with family and friends. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen that incorporates a Jennair oven/range/grill, refrigerator/icemaker and dishwasher with all utensils, equipment, spices, condiments, etc. will make it difficult to try the eclectic restaurants in Keene, New Hampshire or historic Brattleboro, Vermont nearby.

The Four Bedrooms are 2 Queen beds, a Double, and the 4 season sun-porch with 2 single beds & Queen hide a bed (Great kid or teen suite with their own TV and VCR) and a Queen hide-a-bed in the living room and crib allow for a peaceful nights rest after a nice bath in the Jacuzzi tub or sitting in the private outdoor Hot Tub overlooking Forest Lake!

An additional living room/ sitting area with wood stove, AC and new half bath with full size washer & dryer gives you a chance to plan your day fishing,which is superb, swimming off the 150 square foot floating dock, using our canoe,3 kayaks, 4 person paddle boat,rafts or floating lounge chairs on the lake, cross country or downhill skiing, snowmobiling on marked trails, antiquing and shopping in sales tax free NH, playing golf, hiking, biking, leaf-peeping, or attending one of the many auctions, flea markets concerts, shows or festivals in the area.

For a little exercise and a 100 mile view, climb Mt Monadnock, the most climbed Mtn in the world and only 15 miles from the house. Take the bikes down by the hobby farm with Llamas, goats, ducks, geese,lambs,horses etc. Horses and trail rides are less than a mile away and afterwards, rest those weary muscles in the new Hot Tub with the sun setting right into shimmering Forest Lake.

Winter brings cross country skiing right from the door,(10 sets of skis, 12 sizes of boots & lots of skates,snowshoes, hockey sticks and Ice fishing 'jigs' for your use!)big time downhill skiing within an hour, snowmobiling on marked trails,ice skating, sledding, ice fishing or just relaxing around the wood stove or propane fireplace.

Maybe best of all, just grab a book,snuggle in a chair by the fire,or on one of the 3 outdoor decks and just let your cares drift away as the sun slowly sets out over the lake!

We do tend to book up for the Summertime usually by months before, but also check out our new home on Rockwood Pond in Fitzwilliam, NH VRBO/181030.

We used to run a Country Inn and Spa in Canada. While we certainly enjoy our homes when we can on the weekends, we really have fun providing an enjoyable and relaxing time for our guests, who do seem to return year after year. We'd like you to be one of them!

Paul & Anne Harris purchased this house in 2002

The town of Keene, NH, 9 miles north has a wide and constant variety of things to do, with it's 3 universities and very active merchants assoc. The main downtown, with 60 shops & restaurants, with no national chains is very unique. There are the 'Big Box' stores on the outskirts of Keene.

Forest Lake is very protected from prevailing winds, so it warms quickly in the Spring and freezes quickly in the Winter. As a mostly summer seasonal lake, from early fall to late Spring, you own the lake!

AWESOME LAKE RENTAL HOME IN WINCHESTER

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this home in Winchester, NH on Forest Lake for 3 nights and had an amazing time. Literally everything you could possibly need is there, and more....we should have packed lighter. House is adorable, wonderfully decorated with many antiques to look at, and you will have the best dock on the lake. There is even a canoe, kayaks, and paddleboat to use. The only downside of our stay was that the master bedroom mattress was very hard, not comfortable, but we were able to sleep in a different room and the other mattresses were fine. We are still giving 5 stars for our overall vacation experience, and hoping the mattress could be remedied as we would love to be staying again, and bringing friends/ family next time. Thank you!

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Lovely retreat in the woods on the lake. The house had everything we could need for a weekend away. It was clean and well stocked. Everything was as good or better than described on the web page. Plenty of space to gather or retire to your own corner if you prefer.

GREAT PROPERTY WITH ALL THE AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
This property is on a great location that allows for a wonderful getaway on beautiful Forest Lake. Not only is the house fully-equipped with everything one could imagine - from a media library of DVDs to a hot tub to an external BBQ with a dock - but also it includes a basement with games (ping-pong table, for example). Our host, Paul, was friendly and was prompt in communication - helping with the simplest of things, for example - how does the WiFi work? The property was clean and well-maintained - the photos online are a good representation of what you can expect. I would highly recommend this property as it is just the right size with all the amenities which allows for a luxurious vacation rental.

WONDERFULE HOME FOR FRIENDS TO RE-CONNECT!

  • 5 of 5
We all had a great time meeting up with our friends at this home! Paul was fantastic in helping us with directions, he even charted out a long distance run for me as I am training for a Marathon! He went above and beyond! The home was very clean, plenty of space for our friends, easy drive from Boston for our friends. We loved snow shoeing on the lake and playing ping pong in the basement. Great place to travel with friends or family! We hope to be coming back soon! Best, Lauren & Matt

WINTER WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We visited Paul and Ann's rental house on Forest Lake, this past weekend. We had 4 adults and 3 children in our group. The house was exactly what we expected it to be and the kids loved the game room! It was clean, easily accessible and the kitchen was stocked with everything we could have needed and more! We enjoyed ice fishing, relaxing in the hot tub and took the short trip to VT for dinner. All in all it was a great time and we would like to return sometime in the Summer to swim in the lake.
