Happy wife, happy dogs. Happy man.
We wanted to get our city dogs out to the country where they could be off leash. This being the last house on the road helped us to feel comfortable letting the dogs run. We _loved_ sitting in front of the outdoor fireplace throwing the ball for the dogs. Very surprised that there were very few (almost no) horse flies or mosquitos. We used the charcoal bbq for dinners but mostly went to the local diner (FlipSide) for breakfasts. This summer had very hot and humid moments but the AC kept the house cool. Keene is a very nice small city with a welcoming main street with reasonable restaurants, a co-op, theatre, and my wife especially enjoyed the 2nd hand shops for vintage clothing. We are looking into returning during the foliage.
Pet-friendly, private, and peaceful pond-front home with Monadnock view
