Enchanting Rockwood Pond Home with Hot Tub! Fun Year Round!


Home Description

We sold this home and it is no longer available for rent.  Good Luck!

Relax in peaceful private comfort on 1.5 acres on serene 110 acre Rockwood Pond. The view out the full length deck across the lake will make it easy to fully enjoy the Great Room with cathedral ceilings, wood stove, new appliances and lots of seating and the private Hot Tub under the stars. 3 cozy bedrooms (Queen/ Queen and single) and Expansive Family size sleeping loft/entertainment center with a King, 2 single beds,crib and hideabed will accommodate all the family after a fun filled day around serene Rockwood Pond. So very private and yet only 2 miles from the Town Green in so typically New England Fitzwilliam, NH. The private road to a Classic Saltbox style home with all the modern conveniences is very secluded, you can't see another home from the house or while enjoying the Hot Tub overlooking the Lake open from May to New Years!

 Step into your vacation retreat, drop your bags and gaze out the wall of glass to crystal clear Rockwood Pond down the gently sloping lawn and pathways with numerous wildflowers, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry and strawberry bushes galore. Your secluded level beachfront with dock and big floating swim platform makes it very easy to start your vacation explorations. There are very interesting rock formations from an old granite quarry that closed 100 years ago, or have a campfire in the fireplace of the ex Stone Cutters cottage by the lake with our abundant firewood. After swimming, fishing, and exploring with the big canoe,3 kayaks, rowboat, 4 person paddleboat and other fun toys, it will be the perfect end to the day to sit on the expansive deck, grill dinner, take a soak in the hot tub, and renew relationships with friends and family. Enjoy the games, current books, magazines, DVD library and then retire to the 2 tastefully decorated bedrooms, all on one floor or head up to the private,fully carpeted,Large sleeping loft with King size bed, double hide-a-bed and 2 single beds in the kids corner. Great for a family with young children with a full ent center with 2 TVs, VCR,DVD, IPOD docking station, and Broadband Wireless DSL computer with printer and speakers. TWO freshly renovated Bathrooms will certainly ease the morning rush so you can get out and enjoy all that our home and area offers.

The full modern high ceiling sunny lower level holds a Ping Pong table, Pool Table, Foos Ball, Full sized poker table, TV for the kids video games,another Single bed, fishing gear, games, life jackets, winter sports equip, art supplies and other fun things to do.

Rockwood Pond has well spaced seasonal homes on only one half of it's almost two mile length. From Sept to June only 5 homes are occupied and in the summer the other 20 are primarily used on weekends only. Half of the Lake is a "Rails To Trails" pathway for walking, bike riding, nature watching,picking blackberries, or hiking over to Mt. Monadnock, the most climbed mountain in the world, for a 100 mile view to downtown Boston.

The Changing of the Seasons from late spring has abundant strawberries, the summer brings raspberries and big blackberries and as you head to fall, the loads of plump blueberries will amaze you. There are all sorts of festivals, antique shows, theatre in nearby Peterborough, NH (The "Our Town" of Thornton Wilder) and special presentations at the Fitzwilliam Museum which is housed in the old town doctors home, unchanged for over 150 years. Keene, about 12 miles away has a very active downtown with about 70 shops , restaurants, concert hall etc, all locally owned and the national chains on the outskirts. 6 miles away in Rindge you can get Walmart, etc in Sales Tax Free NH ! After your time in this quiet corner of Southern New Hampshire, you head home refreshed, renewed and dreaming of your next visit!!
