A special post & beam country estate perched up on a quiet, country road with sprawling lawns, stonewalls and scenic mountain views. A perfect venue for a family retreat, corporate outing or mountain getaway. The 'HAMPSHIRE HOUSE', built in the 1930's by a prominent Washington diplomat as a mountain retreat, is the essence of comfortable elegance, featuring oak walls, exposed beams, hardwood floors, 4 fireplaces, fan -tailed, palladian windows, vaulted wood ceilings, custom built-ins, portico, and a mahogany deck with view - all on a 12 acre estate setting with mature trees and plantings. The home is furnished and accessorized like a primary home with upscale kitchen wear, 4 flat screen TV's, satellite TV, high end bedding and furnishings and tasteful accents. Located within 15-45 minutes of many-acclaimed White Mountain attractions, including Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Loon Mountain, Franconia Notch, Sugar Hill and Littleton.There is direct access to hiking and snowmobile trails. Pets allowed with owner approval.
Thank you so much for the rental of your house, it is beautiful, we just loved it. There was lots of snow, Lisbon even lost power for a day due to a storm, so the skiing was great. So nice to have such a cozy place to come back to. Beautiful property also. The girls loved just sledding in the yard.
All the best, Patricia
This vacation home was wonderful! My husband, two children with their spouses and 1/1/2 year old sons spent the thanksgiving vacation in this home. I can't begin to say how much we enjoyed staying there, right in Lisbon, new hampshire, the home is in a perfect location, central to many attractions and sites. The home itself has so much to do , you don't even have to leave it to have a great time! Its perfect! The perfect family vacation no matter what the season! Theres so much to do, yet relaxing is just great too, And Chris is great! He's so nice and accommodating! You can't ask for a better vacation! Everything was just how it was listed, I would 100% recommend this vacation home, and dealing with Chris was a very pleasant experience. Cant wait to book our next vacation there, 5 days was not enough! The best vacation ever, this home has everything! Thank you so much Chris for a wonderful vacation home, look forward to our next stay! Elisa
We had a good time living in this beautyful countryhouse. Everything was perfect particularly mattresses. Thank you again!
A magnificent house with a lot of space for children to play and romantic getaway for adults. We had a wonderful time, visited Littletown almost every day, we love it, while there, don't forget to visit Chutters (?) the World Guinness Candy store. We also celebrated my 50th birthday with my family, the best birthday ever. The house is equipped with everything that you possible need to have wonderful meals. Thank you Chris, we will do it again!!
An impressive house with classical features secluded amongst the trees, plenty of space both inside and out for relaxing and the library provides a small den if the family get a little boisterous. The kitchen is well equipped and there is good dinner wear, placemats, etc. The lack of lighting in some of the bedrooms would be a drawback if the house is fully occupied and some bathrooms lack shelves for conveniently placing toiletries. Bathroom lights switch on/off by pull cords above the sink too high for children and small adults and you have to grope around in dark room to find cord.
In Lisbon park behind the Village Book Store on the lower floor of the store is the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen - top quality stuff, then upstairs to book store is good for local books and a coffee. South of Lisbon on the 302 the Bath General Store oldest general store in US. Turn left at bottom of Hodge Hill Road and visit Landaff village pure rural New Hampshire.
Wow what a beautiful home! The house has a lot of space for a large group and a great outdoor space for playing soccer, hiking, or just relaxing. My children loved the pool table and tire swing. I was disappointed in the the stove. It is older, one of the burners is crooked and the oven cooks very uneven but it is functional. There was everything (pans, utensils, platters, etc.) you need in the kitchen to prepare a Thanksgiving feast. We noticed that maybe the owner needs to hire a new housekeeper who pays attention to detail like dusting or orginizing the shelves in the library. We didn't use any of the games at the home as the pieces were not in the boxes and were just shoved with the books and toys on the shelves. I was suprised to find it so disorganized. Also the fuseball table has a lot of missing pieces and had a broken leg. The bedrooms and bathrooms were set up nicely and had great linens. The view from the 3rd floor deck was amazing. We would definately vacation at the "Hampshire House" again. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us!
The minute we set foot in this house we loved it. Its rustic elegance has the flavor of a French chateau deep in the green heart of New Hampshire. Tall windows look out on expansive, well-tended lawns bordered by forest. The furnishings are delightful and un-fussy, the kitchen well-equipped, the beds very comfortable. In the quiet of the night you may hear an occasional owl. Activities are not far away-- hiking in Franconia Notch, miniature golf in Lincoln, etc.- but the main attraction is hanging out at the house, relaxing, reading, playing croquet, pool, or horseshoes, or taking walks in the immediate area. Thanks to the helpful, amiable owner for sharing this beautiful and special place.
