Description of the Spofford vacation home rental
This dream vacation house is literally on the water where everyone wants to be! It is by far the best that Lake Spofford could offer! Cooking for the family is a breeze in the full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and a view of the lake at all times. You can even watch TV or enjoy a conversation with your family or friends. The dining room is spacious with seating for 8 and plenty of windows. The living room features plenty of comfortable seating for the whole family. You can watch TV, read a book or enjoy a conversation with your family or friends. There is a full deck with screened in porch overlooking the lake and the LP barbeque is always ready to prepare a delicious meal. The downstairs bedroom is perfect for people who aren't stair friendly and is steps away from a full bathroom, both handicap friendly. Upstairs there is a kids room with 2 single beds, a master bedroom with a queen bed and an older kids room with 2 double beds featuring a deck overlooking the whole lake. The unit offers DirectTV with plenty of sports ad movie channels, telephone, high speed internet services and a 100 foot dock to tie up your boat. Couple this with 100+ feet of sandy beach, shallow waters so the little ones can have lots of fun, great fishing right off the dock, with sunsets to remember and you won't want to leave and you will be counting the months until you can come back!
If you come in the fall, bring your camera because you will want to take lots of pictures. The colors are stupendous. Sunsets on the water illuminate the whole lake at times you will think there's a giant light shining on the water.
If skiing is what you like, then you can find at least six well-known ski areas from 13 to 45 miles away; try them all and then come back to a warm, quiet, relaxing place for a nice dinner, stupendous winter views and a good night's sleep!
Area Information
Spofford Lake is the premier body of water in southern New Hampshire. Lots of activities right on the water, and never really crowded. Clean, enjoyable family fun for all ages. Kids of all ages find so much to do that they forget about all those games they brought with them. The city of Keene is about ten miles away. Lots of shopping, dining, mountain climbing, fairs and entertainment for everyone. And best of all, you can do lots of shopping and save. NH does not have a sales tax on purchases of goods. Bring your golf clubs because the course is about a mile away, not crowded so you don't have to get up at four in the morning to enjoy nine holes before breakfast and you can do it every day, it's not expensive! But it's well maintained. Then pick up the rest of the family and head over to Stuart and Johns for a great breakfast: the best pancakes I have ever had and the syrup is made right there! If you come at the right time you can watch them make it. Then you can buy a jug and take it home. It is that good! If it's apple picking time, plenty of apple farms around to enjoy a day on the farm and the apples are really tasty! What about Pumpkin Fest? Have you ever seen a one thousand pound pumpkin before? People come from all over, it's a blast! Great food, lots of fun! And probably the busiest time of the year is in the winter. Lots of skiers, lots of white snow, ski areas all around.
Something for every season. Come and enjoy the scenery, the people, the food, the water, the clean air and you will always want to come back.

Spofford Lake

Wonderful spot. Beautiful lake. Comfy cottage with all the amenities. Great views from the property. Close to Brattleboro and Keene. Enjoyed time with family. Great value off season. No complaints!

Terrific lake getaway

Unfortunately we were only able to spend a weekend at the house, but we had a wonderful time. The house was clean, user-friendly, and just as pictured in the photos. Tony & Marisa gave us all of the information necessary and returned our deposit promptly with a kind note. This is a wonderful spot for a few couples or a family to spend time relaxing. We brought some of our own floating inner tubes for the lake, which I would definitely recommend for future visitors!

Owner's reply:

Ariel, thank you for taking the time. You are welcomed anytime.

A really nice vacation

Tony/Marisa: The lake house was spectacular, the weather perfect all week, the views and sunsets awsome and the lake and water very refreshing. The house was very comfortable and airy. All the beds and linens were high quality and there was nothing that I was looking for that I did not find in the kitchen. I have recommended the lake and your home to my friends and will definately return before my twin girls get to old to want to vacation with me! The only recommendation I have is to consider purchasing beach chairs for people to use while they are renting the house....other than that the week was absolutely perfect and dealing with you and Marisa was seemless. Very Best- Nate

Tony Martini

Owner's reply:

Nate, we loved having you stay with us and we are glad everyone had a great time.
Thank you for your recommendation to get beach chairs.

Excellent place and location

This house slept 6 comfortably. The owners were great at making sure we were taken care of. Updated appliances and furniture with great views of the lake from the huge porch made for a very pleasant stay. I would definitely consider renting this house again. Thank you again for a great weekend!

Owner's reply:

Jason, thank you for sending your review. We will welcome you and your group anytime. We do pay attention and your comments make it all worthwhile.

Good Times

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tyler House on Spofford Lake. It is a large comfortable home and the new bathroom and kitchen are a real plus. The porch overlooking the lake is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or have your meals with family and friends. If you are looking for a very nice vacation home , The Tyler House will not disappoint

Wedding Weekend at Spofford Lake

My rental on Spofford Lake was everything I hoped for and more. The wraparound porch facing the lake is amazing. Beautiful open floor plan. My daughter got married on the outside of the lake, so the house was perfect. I also had a rehearsal dinner and there was plenty of room for guests. I would recommend this rental to anyone visiting NH. I am planning to rent again in the future. Thanks to Tony & Marisa.

Owner's reply:

Linda, thank you for a great review. We are glad that everything worked out great for you.

Spofford Lake Vacation

There were a few things misrepresented in the description that I feel need mention. The 100 ft sandy beach and 80 ft. dock are not directly on your property, but a small walk up your drive way through a path and down around another property. The dryer had extended dry times and had lint coming out the vent. My husband tried to pull some out with the vacuum, but it definitely requires professional attention as this is a fire hazard. All towels had that funky odor like they had been sitting wet for a long time and no amount of washing would help. The mattresses weren't the most comfortable and pillows were very flat. The balcony porch leaked during a heavy rain down onto the main porch. The upside is that this is really a very nice home on Spofford. We really did have a great time. I would just like to see some maintenance improvements before I would consider staying again.

Tony Martini

Owner's reply:

Natalie, I waited to accept your review, pending responses from the appliance repair company and the cleaning people. We appreciate every guest's suggestions and follow up on the majority of them without haste. The problem on the dryer is that people are overloading it and that extends the drying time. We were also recommended to have the vent seen by a venting specialist and we are now awaiting his visit.
The cleaning people promised to take more care and the dock/beach is on our property!

Great property for three generations!

We had a family get together for family members ages 2-64. The living/kitchen/dining are was open and all could be part of the cooking action. My nephew is a chef and was impressed with the quality of the appliances and prep space. Everything we needed to cook, eat, bar-tend, etc. was there. The porch overlooking the lake was large with space for the kids to play and the adults to converse. We never felt crowded as there was plenty of space inside and out. Ample sleeping arrangements ( 8 upstairs, 2 downstairs) let the late risers sleep in. The lake is clean, clear and shallow, the beach is right next door. For those wanting a little more action, Brattleboro, VT and Keene, NH are nearby and hiking around the lake on route 9A is easy exercise. We had a great time and recommend it highly to others.

Karen, we are so happy that you and your family had a great time.

Fantastic week on Spofford Lake

Our rental on Spofford Lake was everything we hoped for and more. No surprises. Exactly as advertised. The owners of the home were extremely gracious and even greeted us on arrival day and provided personal attention to make sure we had all our needs met. The wraparound porch facing the lake is amazing. Beautiful open floor plan. Everything was very nice.

Tony Martini

Owner's reply:

Larry, thank you for your review and for your blessings. Marisa and I cannot thank you enough for praying with her at a very difficult time. Thank you and God bless you and your family,

sibling get-together

My three siblings and myself, all over 55 rented this lake house for the first week in June. Had a wonderful time in New Hampshire staying in this 2 story house. Enjoyed being on the water and sitting on the screened porch watching the incredible sunsets. I would recommend this rental to anybody who enjoys water activities and all that the Monadnock area has to offer.

Tony Martini

Owner's reply:

Diane, it was a pleasure having you. Thank you for your review.
Have a nice summer,

Wonderful Weekend

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at your lakehouse, full of beuatiful fall foliage! There was ample sleeping room, and the yard and porch were beautiful! The only suggestions I would make with all of the sleeping area you now have, would be to put in another bathroom and maybe more indoor dining (a bigger table). We had 6 adults and 4 children under 6 and were comfortable for the entire weekend. Thanks so much, and hopefully we will be back next fall :)

Tony Martini

Owner's reply:

Bethany, I'd like to thank you for your review and I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay. And I am super glad that you wish to come back next fall. I will study your suggestion to see if it could be accomplished in a future remodeling.

A gem

My family and I stayed at this property for a weekend. There were 8 adults and an infant. There was plenty of room and still had room for another couple. This home sits right on the lake with a fabulous screened in porch with lots of seating. We wish it had been a little warmer so we could have enjoyed more time out there. The house is beautifully furnished and has everything you need. We loved staying there and would definitely come back and look forward to it. I would say the only thing that would have been helpful would have been to have some kind of instructions or information for renters...such as the password for the internet and expectations on how we should leave the place..i.e. should we make the beds before we leave (fresh linens were laid out), should we wash and dry the sheets and towels, etc. Really lovely place!

Tony Martini

Owner's reply:

Katherine, thank you so much for your review. We certainly look forward having you stay with us again. You make some excellent suggestions which we will incorporate with our new instruction letters.

Fall Beauty

We rented this house for two weeks of fall splendor. The location was perfect, close to our family in Keene, NH with a magnificent view of the lake from the large welcoming screen porch. The updated Kitchen and Bath are great. The house is so comfortable that we did not want to leave so most days we chose to cook and eat in with friends and family. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and entertaining a crowd. Although it was too cool for swimming this time of year, we enjoyed conoeing on the lake and just lounging on the beach or screen porch with a book. We also had great fun with our 3 year old grandson digging in the sand and playing on the playground which is an easy walk from the house. The property is beautifully maintained both inside and out. This house made for a perfect and restful vacation. We hope to be back next year.

Owner's reply:

Martha, we loved having you. Thank you and looking forward to you coming back soon.

Beautiful and Serene

The house and surrounding area was beautiful, exactly what we were looking for for our family trip. We comfortably fit 10 adults and 2 toddlers. The lake is so beautiful and serene, one of the most relaxing vacations we have taken in a long time. The water is clean and clear, very swimable, and the kids enjoyed playing on the sandy shore. The large enclosed back deck was perfect for enjoying meals together, and the newly renovated kitchen/dining room/living room was great for casual eating and lounging around. Our only complaint is that 2 of the 3 upstairs bedrooms are quite small, as well as the upstairs bathroom. But we spent most of our time outside enjoying the amazing lake and scenery, and really only used the bedrooms for sleeping.

Perfect Family Vacation Home!

This home on lake Spofford was large with a great floor plan. Plenty of room for everyone. The views are amazing with a really nice size beach front and perfect for kids. I was a bit nervous regarding the loft and kids but it worked out well. We plan to rent again next summer!!

Spofford Lake Home

We rented the home on Spofford Lake for my son's wedding in Keene. There were 8 of us in three families. The home worked out perfectly for what we needed. Everything was clean and nice. There was a nice new bathroom on the first level with shower. The upstairs bathroom reminded me of some older cabins that we have stayed in. It was small but acceptable. There was plenty of bedding and towels for everyone. The Lake is just a few steps off of the porch. Sitting on the porch, viewing the lake and grilling was very nice. There is a great public beach just down the road a few steps with play equipment for children. If we are ever back in the Keene NH area, we would definetly stay at this home again. Just a short drive of about 10 minutes to Keene.

Thank you Sue.
We really appreciate your review.

Idyllic Lake House

I rented this house while I was in Vermont for a conference. It was great to come "home" and swim in the lake! I was only sorry I didn't have my family with me. The house was very comfortable. The recently remodeled kitchen/living room area provide a great space for relaxing -- 5 or 6 people would fit in the space easily. The downstairs bath is large and accomodating. The upstairs bedrooms and bath are rustic, but very serviceable and charming. I loved the back porch best of all -- just steps from the crystal clear water of Spofford Lake. I will be a return customer. All I could recommend would be the aquisiton of some wine glasses and a toaster.... but that's frosting on the cake. The house is great, and would be ideal for a family vacation.

A delightful mix of updated clean modern comfortable and accommodating kitchen, LR and bath downstairs with the retro feel of the old time cabin bedrooms upstairs. Privacy right alongside of the public beach. My son and friends enjoyed the friendly Pumpkin Seeds (fish) that come right up to check you out on the 2 decent evenings I had - feed them and you have new friends forever :) It was really nice - great for the family or entertaining; just wish my vacation hadn't rained and stormed all week :( Still would have enjoyed it I am sure, if I had friends and family staying - make sure you bring cards and board games just in case. Tony and Marisa were wonderful. I hope I can stay again. Will bring my entourage next time and pray for better weather; will book after school is out too.

Pure Relaxation

What a delightful week we had staying at this beautiful cottage. The whole downstairs has recently been remodeled and tastefully decorated with recessed lighting, new appliances, and new leather furniture in the living room. The upstairs is more rustic but very comfortable. We had so much fun swimming, kayaking, and taking long walks around the lake but we particularly enjoyed just sitting on the front deck/porch overlooking the lake visiting and dining with family and friends. At night, the the sound of the gentle waves hitting the shore lulled us to sleep. A great cottage to make wonderful new memories!

Childhood Memories

Forgive me, I was not able to plug in the actual beginning and ending dates of my stay at this venerable Spofford cottage. My family owned the former Clapp cottage and I spent many happy summers from 1948 to the early '60s. My first memory is the view through the diamond-shaped window panes of sun-sparkled waters and Pierce Island beyond. Next, the smooth, broad bannister leading upstairs. Back then, I amused myself with the patterns of the knotty pine knotholes. As kids we threw things over the open partitions. The fireplace downstairs had loose terra cotta tiles on the floor. At the end of each summer I would leave a message for me to find the following year. My father gauged out our names with a hot poker above the doorway arch. Blueberry bushes were everywhere, even by shore's edge. The O'Neal kids next door and I would dig out underwater clay with spoons and have underwater tea parties. I spent all day in the lake back then and was never happier. I return to it often in dreams.
