Welcome to Lake Skatutakee in Harrisville New Hampshire, where there is no better way to enjoy the long summer days than from a lakefront cottage. You will find this location ideal for the small family, or just perfect for the individual looking to get away.
Appreciate the lake from your screened in porch, or step out onto the patio to enjoy the afternoon sun.
Mt Monadnock is close by for the outdoor enthusiast, or take the 15 minute drive to Keene, NH for a day of shopping.

Looney about Rocky Point
This is our fourth year here, so that attests to the beauty of this spot. We keep extending our stay and are up to 3 weeks. We have been to many places over the years, but this is the most idyllic of all.
There is much to do and see in the area, but we have a hard time tearing ourselves away from the porch gazing out over the lake. This year there was a family of four loons, instead of the normal two in the past, that serenaded us, what bliss.
If you are a true Lake Connoisseur, put this on your Top 10 List. Swimmer's & paddler's paradise. Quiet. Clean. Loons! Stars! Beautifully equipped kitchen. Totally unobstrusive but lovely young couple owner/landlord and well-behaved & charming old dog. For this reviewer, the best part is the water: the location on a tiny point of land leaves you surrounded on 3 sides by the soft, glimmering, shimmering, inviting water of Lake Skatatukee (pronounced with emphasis on the "-ta"). If relaxation is what you seek, if swimming, canoeing and reading are your idea of a good time, this is the place for you! (Bring your mountain bike - many roads in the area are dirt & gravel).
(ps: bedroom mattress is quite soft)."
Great Location. Great Lake Front View
We had such a great time here. The cottage is directly on the lake with one room practically on it with all the lovely lake sounds. Brice and Jen were lovely: totally helpful but also unobtrusive. The place is around 15 minutes from Peterboro and 20 minutes from Keene so there is good food but also a great rustic vibe. Lovely hiking and may I again mention the lake. Lovely private deck and outdoor seating as well plus a 2 person canoe. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.
Spent a week at this cottage; the pictures don't begin to describe how nice it is. Not pictured here is a large bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed. It is also roomier than it looks. I recommend staying away from the sitting room overlooking the water if you have any plans. Difficult to pull yourself away. The lake is also pretty quiet, not many boats and I didn't see any jet skis. The interior was very clean and I wasn't lacking for anything. I spent my time traveling the Harrisville/Ringe/Peterborough areas painting landscapes and ate comfortably at the cottage every night. I will be recommending this place to all my painter/hiking friends.
