Cozy, Wooded, Waterfront, Mountain View Cabin on Silver Lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Nature lovers delight! Secluded cabin, on a peninsula, on Silver Lake, at the foot of Mt. Monadnock. We get both morning and afternoon sun on each dock. One dock overlooks the entire lake and has a clear view of the mountain, and our other dock is in a quiet, private cove with wildlife all around. The peninsula is called Blueberry Point. It is covered with blueberry bushes, and in late July and August the bushes drip with native blueberries. Bordering our property are well marked Audubon trails and quiet dirt roads. The cabin was built in 1948 and has a beautiful fieldstone fireplace, 2 screened-in porches, and all the basic amenities. Come share our little bit of paradise, listen to the loons and water lapping, as you relax with a good book in the hammock, or take a day in nearby Peterborough or Keene where you will enjoy great restaurants and shopping... with lots of antiquing! Visit the historical town of Harrisville only 5 min. away with a traditional general store with great coffee, baked goods, soups, sandwiches and the New York Times! Take the kids to The Friendly Farm and let them nurse a newborn sheep and feed the goats, then off to mini golf and ice cream. For an active day, climb majestic Mt. Monadnock. Our renters always come back for the peacefulness that seems to balance their lives and gives them perspective.

This is a truly special place and we hope you enjoy and respect the experience together at our family retreat.

Nice place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at the cabin. It was lovely! The cabin was exactly as it was described and was perfect for us. We enjoyed the solitude and being away from it all. It was very quiet, relaxing and enjoyable--the way a vacation should be!

In Love With Blueberry Point

  • 5 of 5

This was our third rental of the cabin at Blueberry Point. As was true of the last two times, we loved it. We love the feeling of isolation and total quiet, although I admit that the addition of wi-fi is a big plus. Our routine, as usual, is to spend the vast majority of our time at the cabin, enjoying the lake, especially the kayaking. We generally make several trips to Harrisville (6 miles) for coffee and the New York Times, and one trip to Peterborough for lunch at the diner and shopping at the Toadstool Bookshop. We never go out for an evening meal, largely because it seems too far to go when we could be eating in front of the log fire.

Splendid in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I can say without any reservations that our vacation on Silver Lake was perfect in every way. The cabin was well appointed, games, fireplace, gas grill, warm blankets, utensils, books, views, screen porches and privacy. For us privacy and access to the water is very important and the boathouse cove was ideal for afternoon sun and soak while the lakeside dock was perfect for an early morning swim and coffee or afternoon nap in the hamock. Very few bugs, lots of birds and chipmunk activity...for entertainment.

We had one small glitch, called the owner and he responded with good humor and immediate results. Hiked Mt Monadnock one day and took a few trips to Harrisville for ice cream and email. All and all this vacation location is a delightful place if you are interested in quit and relaxation. For myself growing up in NH and spending summers on a lake when "camps" often had no phones, no TV and were all about slowing down and being surrounded by the natural world this was liking coming home.

Many thanks to the owners for keeping this slice of old NH alive and well.

Nestled in Nelson

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this cabin for years, it has become a special family destination and has provided us with so many great memories! It is a cozy rustic cabin, very clean and well cared for. The lake and it's surroundings are like paradise, we are bird lovers and there are so many to see and hear. The lake is the best lake I have ever swam in...crystal clear and warm. We hardly ever leave the canbin and lake but if you need to there is much to do and see, we have a yearly Mt. Monadnock climb.
