As a family with young children, this setting was the perfect place to unwind & unplug for a few days! The kids loved the animals (pygmy goats, rabbit, donkey, horse, chickens...) and a screened in barn stocked with toys, books & games. The in-ground pool was huge and very clean and the diving board was a big bonus. I really loved how calm and quiet the whole property was and how interesting it was to explore property. The bunk house kitchen was completely stocked with all the pots & pans and spices needed for cooking and a dishwasher and laundry was a luxury as well. The owners left us butter & english muffins, juice, bananas, ice cream... it was really thoughtful. They were very kind and helpful, thoughtful and easy to chat with. We felt very welcome. I would definitely return and have already suggested it to friends. The town and surrounding area had some decent playgrounds and icecream shops but was pretty quiet otherwise. There was a Shaws within a few miles. Loved it!
We have spent 10 wonderful days in the Bunk House. We had such a worm welcome by Cathryn and Paul like we never had before when we rented a house. They already filled the fridge, gave us a lot of information what to do around Newport and even picked my husband up after a veeery long hike - thanks again for that!
It was gorgeous on Freewill Farm, not too far to visit Boston and the White Mountains. Near by Lake Sunapee and Winnipesaukee and also nice places for shopping. The cottages have everything you need for a great holiday! We definitely would like to come back to visit this great place and our lovely hosts!
I had a wonderful time staying in the Elm Cottage. It was a such a great get-away from busy city life. The grounds are gorgeous, the house is perfect - everything you need, the pool was refreshing on a hot day and my dog was in heaven. I spent a lot of time on the back porch relaxing and playing guitar while the pup roamed the grounds. The hosts are wonderful, kind and helpful. And the price just can't be beat. This is a great vacation spot for a family with small kids (animals!) or for a couple just wanting to get a break (that was us). I highly recommend a stay here!
Freewill farm was a great place! My fiance and I were looking for a cozy spot to slow down during a busy summer. There was plenty to do including hiking, kayaking sunapee lake, exploring Newport, walking the farm, sitting on the back porch enjoying the landscape, or slowing down to lounge at the pool.
I booked a hot air balloon ride and used the opportunity to propose...she said yes! Paul was in on it the whole time and kept it secret. Paul and Cathryn were gracious hosts and helped us discover a variety of activities in the area.
The cottage had all the amenities we needed. We enjoyed grilling every night and having the dishwasher for clean up! Our dog enjoyed the company of the three dogs, and became part of the pack by the end of the week.
Overall we were very happy with our stay and can't wait to plan our next trip to Freewill Farm!
This is the second time we have stayed at Freewill farm and we loved it even more. If you like to hear the sound of the rooster in the morning or the ducks quacking as they waddle passed the bedroom windows a little later then you will love this place. But that was only the start for us. The swimming pool, equipment in the cottage, everything was made available to ensure we had a carefree holiday plus the magic of the New Hampshire scenery - pictures can't do it justice.
Paul and Cathryn have made us feel very much at home and we will definitely be back there next year.
We stayed in the Elm View and had a wonderful time. Everything was supplied including the washing powder for the machine. We had a great time. My husband would sit out on the deck and watch the wildlife and the chickens. Paul and Cathryn are great people and made our stay a good one.
The area is very nice, everywhere we went the people were friendly.
