The 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 all year!

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 old Stone Cutters cottage by the lake with our abundant firewood. We also have another firepit up by the Hot Tub and house.

After swimming, fishing, and exploring with the big canoe,3 kayaks, 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 with a game of Ping Pong or Pool.

Enjoy the games, current books, magazines, DVD library. It's great for a family with young children with a full ent center with 2 TVs, VCR,DVDS, and Broadband Wireless DSL computer with printer and speakers.

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!!

Another fantastic stay at Rockwood pond

Yet again, Paul and Anne's home proves to be the perfect getaway. Even on a rainy day our group had plenty of room to enjoy ourselves. Thank you so much!

Beautiful and restful setting

Rockwood Pond is great for swimming and very beautiful. Our week was very quiet and we really enjoyed the peaceful setting. The house is very comfortable and well-equipped. We enjoyed Keene which is a short drive away!

Absolutely loved my stay. Everything was perfect. The house is adorable, perfectly clean, and well stocked. The water was great and we spent many hours swimming, kayaking, and fishing. The owner is so caring, he called me after we arrived to make sure everything was ok and I assured him it was great! We made many memories during our stay.

outside looks old and rustic, but inside is updated and very clean. The back is all open and airy with glass. The large deck is loaded with chairs and lounges for relaxing. Two areas for open pits. We had our 2 grandchildren with us and they enjoyed the boats available and the nice dock for fishing. Paul (owner) came by one day to make sure everything was operable. He is a nice person and cares about his property. It is was a lovely vacation for us and our grandchildren. Would highly recommend it for a family vacation. The Lowe's from Florida
