My husband Sam and I are recently retired and are enjoying 'the good life' in the NH mountains. We moved up North from Boston, Massachusetts after 25 years of traveling up to the NH mountains on weekends. We love to travel in the US and internationallly. We enjoy sharing our experiences with our renters and learning about their unique experiences. We specialize in families with young children and international guests.
Birdy Ellsmore purchased this apartment in 2007
The house adjacent to the garage/apartment complex and the 1.7 acres was our weekend vacation property for 25 years. When we moved into the property 5 years ago, we built the large garage and second floor apartment and deck. We personally worked with the contractor on every aspect of the exterior and interior features. We hoped one day to have a place out west, but keep the apartment as our New England 'get a way'. It is very special to us and that is reflected in the lighting and contemporary beauty of this apartment.
