We have tried to accommodate all ages in setting up Grammy camp. Having a large family, we understand keeping children busy so parents can relax. One side of porch is full of toys, games, and a GIGANTIC tub of Legos; the other side has a comfortable sitting area for morning coffee, tea or evening cocktail.
Satellite TV, streaming device and wireless Internet keeps you in touch with modern life and children in touch with their favorite programs.
Grammy Camp stay is quiet and stress free. Take a walk around the lake (3 miles) and enjoy the warm southern New Hampshire sun. Camp is fully insulated and heated so you will be toasty warm even in a Winter blizzard. The town road is paved and plowed. Keene (11 miles) is a great walk around college community with ethnic restaurants, interesting shops and the new Monadnock Food Coop.
Full access to the house, dock, private community beach as well as grill, and yard.
We have 4 kayaks, 1 canoe, 2 paddle boards, multi sizes for life vests and swim fins. Also gas grill, small fire pit and outside table and chairs. Dock for fishing (over 16 need license), small beach for launching and large sandy community beach 65 feet away. Water shallow in our cove but 100 ft deep in open lake.

Retired couple who love gardening and projects. It's a busy life filled with 5 kids and lots of grandchildren. We enjoy going to Florida for a Winter vacation and, in the Summer, we're at our NH camp as much as possible. We love to cook and build things together. We met in college and, somehow, survived being together over 50 years.
