Carole and Joan -Just a quick note to let you both know how much we enjoyed our week at Freeland Acres. The house was perfect - so beautiful and so comfortable. I can't think of a more perfect spot for unwinding from our NYC lifestyle. The weather wasn't ideal, unfortunately, but we managed to do everything we'd hoped to do, nevertheless. I left a note for your housekeepers, letting them know that we never used the upstairs beds or bath and that we had to leave one bag of trash behind due to recycling center hours. Not sure when the house had been last used, but it was spotless upon our arrival. I think we left it in very good order, too. A couple of notes that might prove useful if you want to update your very helpful notes. The Depot and Clamshell restaurants are both closed. Too bad. Also, it would have been good tohave known about the Shaws in Littleton in advance, as the selection was wider and prices lower than Macs Market in Franconia. We stumbled upon it. Again, thanks for a very memorable week.
Joan McGowan sells real estate in the Philadelphia area. She is married and has a son and two daughters, and two grandsons. In 1967 Joan and her sister Susan Freeland drove to New Hampshire with their Dad in look for a farm to buy. The girls immediately chose their bedrooms and soon thereafter the sale was made. charming farmhouse has been owned by the Freeland Family for almost 60 years.
Built during the Civil War, the original house was tiny. Later a barn, mud room and picket fence were added. Over the years other rooms were added, including bedrooms, family room, pantru and a second bathroom. The parlor has a piano.
Today, just the house remains. However, the family as been careful to retain the original charm of the white clapboard and green-shuttered exterior. The front porch has an uninterrupted, sweeping mountain view. The area is peaceful and abounds with birds and wildlife. The interior has original farmhouse molding and wide pine board flooring. The home remains a quiet, comfortable get-away for those who want to relax. The nights are dark and on a clear night the sky is flooded with stars.
