My husband and I and our two big dogs just finished a week here at Spring Hill Farm and we will definitely be back.
Nick, the owner, was responsive and easy to deal with, and Mimi, the caretaker, was also totally accomodating.
The house is big - plenty of room to spread out. Furnishings are comfortable, which is great for a rental (we've been in some houses where the couches just make you ache), although they have been well-used. This is not a designer house; this is where you go to relax. There are plenty of windows so the house is bright and cheerful.
Kitchen was well-equipped; appliances all in good repair, pots and pans well-worn but good enough.
We only used one of the seven bedrooms but the mattress was terrific, again, a plus for a rental house.
The property is just wonderful; the areas around the house are kept mowed, but there are just the perfect number of maple trees to provide shade and a lovely appearance. The largest pond is GREAT for swimming; the little 'beach' area means there's no farm pond mud to wade through! Wooded areas around the place mean there is complete privacy.
We made use of the sauna several times during our stay - it's a real plus.
The house is easy to get to without being on a busy road. We found the nearby IGA to be very well-stocked, and there are options for going out to eat in all directions. Beer aficionados take note: there is a wonderful beer store just a few minutes away. Manchester and it's outlets are a short hop away, as are wonderful hiking trails.
If you're looking for granite countertops and Viking ranges, this is not the place. If you and your dogs like running in & out without a care, then definitely try this house.
oh - and the pool table - it rained one day and we spent a good while being laughably bad at pool. Who'd have thought it would come in so handy?
