Holiday Rental House
This picturesque country cottage is nestled on 300 feet of very private forested frontage on Lake Horace, a pristine lake in the heart of the Piscataquoge water shed near the town of Weare. Enveloped in the charming ambiance of southern yellow pine, the cottage is rustic, secluded, cozy and comfortable. It has a fully equipped open concept kitchen with a brand new stainless steel refrigerator and gas stove. And the great room has a vaulted ceiling and a large stone fireplace with plenty of firewood. If you want to split kindling you can bring an axe. You'll have a bathroom and two cozy open ceiling bedrooms - a master with full bed and guest with two twins. The cottage also features a screened porch, deck with grill, tools and propane and your own dock and rowboat just yards away.

Enveloped in the charming ambiance of southern yellow pine, the cottage is rustic, secluded, cozy and comfortable. It has a fully equipped open concept kitchen with a brand new stainless steel refrigerator and gas stove. And the great room has a vaulted ceiling and a large stone fireplace with plenty of firewood. If you want to split kindling you can bring an axe. You'll have a bathroom and two cozy open ceiling bedrooms - a master with full bed and guest with two twins. The cottage also features a screened porch, deck with grill, tools and propane and your own dock and rowboat just yards away. The couch in the great room is a high-riser, in case you require more sleeping room, and a folding cot and crib are available. The dock, with steps into the water, is ideal for swimming and fishing or you may want to take a short walk to HI - POINT, our own peninsula beach, which we share with just six neighbors. You can also row to the beach and tie up at the diving dock. To really help you relax and 'get away from it all', you'll have only a radio/cd player and no house phone, mail, internet or TV to interfere with the call of the loons. But, food shopping and newspapers are just a short drive, along with fine restaurants, golf and orchards. You'll find information about them, hiking, fishing and local attractions on the coffe table in front of the hearth . Towels and bed linens are not supplied, but you'll have plenty of blankets and pillows. If you use the rowboat, you should be aware that vest type life jackets for each person are required by law. Fisherpersons must purchase a fishing license, available at the Henniker Pharmacy and several other local shops. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to catch a huge Lake Horace largemouth bass, smallmouth, pickerel, perch, crappie or trout! Our cabin is not just any rental. It is a bucolic home for couples, kids and parents to get to know each other and to appreciate nature in peace and quiet. It is meant for just that purpose, like enjoying breakfast on the deck and sunset dinners at your waterside picnic table. If you have any questions about the cottage, local facilities, activities or want some advice on how to catch the 'big one' in Lake Horace, just email us. NOTES: US Coast Guard approved life jackets for each passenger must be in the boat. All rentals are during summer only, one week minimum, Saturday to Saturday. The cottage is professionally cleaned between renters, but daily housekeeping and personal supplies are the guest's responsibility. Refuse is collected once a week by our caretaker, usually on Friday or Saturday. TRIPADVISOR rates INCLUDE booking fee. FLIPKEY rates EXCLUDE booking fee. Rate excludes 9% New Hampshire Rooms and Meals tax. There will be no refunds, except for the $300 refundable security/damage deposit, unless the cottage is re-rented for the cancelled period. Until Reservation is Confirmed Rates are Subject to Change Without Notice. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 027648More

About the neighbourhood
Located in Weare about 85 miles from Boston, 20 from Manchester and 13 west of Concord, the cottage is bounded by the Contoocook River to the north and Goffstown, Deering, Hillsboro and 'the only Henniker on earth'. It is near the end of a well maintained, private, 11/3 mile dirt road serving only 13 homes. Your nearest neighbor will be about 300 feet away. The setting is tranquil and special with views of low rolling hills across the lake. Mt. Monadnock, hiking, golf, fine dining, shopping, historic and other attractions are just a comfortable drive away. And it's a beautiful day trip to Franconia Notch, the Flume, Mt. Washington and the Kankamangus Trail in the White Mountains. Historic Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth, at the seacoast, offers a wonderful learning experience for ch...
Getting around
Parking is under the carport at the front of the cottage across from the woodshed.
