If you’re looking for serenity, peace and quiet for couples and families, you have found it at the end of a mile and a half dirt road. The Gate House is a beautifully constructed post and beam three-bedroom year-round house with a large wrap-around deck that has views of a private lake in one direction and Otter Brook in another. You can enjoy swimming, miles of hiking, canoeing or simply relaxing indoors or on the deck while surrounded by natural beauty.

The space
The Gate House is ideally suited for both couples and families with children looking to escape the urban rat race. It is situated within the 250 acre "Lakefalls Lodge" estate and offers manicured lawns abutting acres of forest and water. Kids can run around and play all day on the ample lawns, safe from traffic.

The house has a fully equipped modern kitchen and a propane grill on the deck.

While Lakefalls is located deep in the woods, it's just a 20 minute drive to Keene, NH which offers lots of great shopping and good restaurants and bars.

Guest access
In addition to your totally private use of the Gate House, you'll be able to enjoy the Lakefalls grounds. Swim in the lake; enjoy cocktails on the turret of the stone walled garden; hike around the lake and across the covered bridge. There are miles of more serious hiking trails on the property and the adjoining 11,000 conserved acres. A canoe and kayak are at your disposal for use on our private lake or you can paddle a couple of miles on Chandler Meadow which is a unique and very private wilderness area.

I am semi-retired from a large sign and display company based in New Jersey, which I founded 30 years ago. I love traveling and have been to many countries around the world. As I eased into retirement, I took up mountaineering with a passion and have now climbed the highest peaks on seven of the eight continents (7 + Oceana), including Mt. Everest. I hope to be climbing the eighth (Mt. Elbrus in Europe) in the near future. Other likes are biking, music of all sorts, great food and meeting new people.
