Wonalancet is a village in the northwestern corner of the town of Tamworth in Carroll County, New Hampshire.
The name 'Wonalancet' translates to 'Pleasant Breathing' which you can't help but enjoy during your stay.
Many popular hiking trails into the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains have trail heads in the area, particularly in the locale known as Ferncroft, up a short spur road from Wonalancet.
The village itself is named for the Pennacook Indian leader Wonalancet.
The property is positively New Hampshire at its best! Something incredible to offer each and every season. Peaceful pastoral setting connects to amazing trail network makes this get away a treasure inside and out.
What a lovely and welcoming home! We spent a few fantastic days here around New Years. Having stayed at a fair number of home stays I can say that Debra has everything taken care of. We were a group of 11 women looking for a space that would let us share food, drinks, games and hikes. This home surpassed our expectations. The downstairs is very well laid out with an open kitchen leading into a beautiful sunlit dinning area that leads into multiple seating areas around the fire! (the photos can't do it justice) As we cooked for 11 we were especially pleased by the two ovens, huge stove top, and an amazing fridge and freezer. While the lack of snow prevented us from going snow shoeing, we were able to enjoy some nice easy rambles on trails directly off the property. There is a river that looks perfect for summer swimming. We were in awe of the sunrises and are very tempted to come back and see how beautiful the land must look in other seasons.
We had a wonderful fall weekend at Locke Falls Farm. The house has everything we needed for our family. Our boys, who are six and two, loved exploring the house and the property. We hiked the trails along the property in the morning, admired the beautiful fall foliage, spent a fun day at Story Land and ended our trip climbing at Monkey Trunks. It was the perfect weekend getaway. Highly recommend this property to families looking for a home base that has everything and is conveniently located to outdoor adventures, shopping and dining. If only we didn't have to leave... We'll be back!
We are a couple in our thirties from the Boston area who got engaged in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It was our dream to get married in those mountains and that dream came true at Debra's place.
Not only is the house extremely beautiful and the perfect set up for a wedding venue (just take a look at those pictures!) but Debra is the perfect host. She has a ton of experience catering and planning events herself, so she was able to anticipate and take care of our needs. Anything we required and she was just a phone call or email away and she always quickly responded.
She is also extremely knowledgeable and well-connected. Debra was able to send me a list of caterers and wedding supply rental companies who were all local, reliable and affordable. This sped up my search process immensely and I was grateful to know I would be taken care of by all these vendors. Like hiking? She was even able to recommend great trails and supply us with maps of the area!
The property is stunning and perfect for a wedding/event or just getting away. The place is well taken care of and newly remodeled. It used to be a sheep farm and horse corral, so with the remodel it really has this "rustic elegance" and serene beauty, which was exactly what we were looking for. We looked at dozens of properties and event venues and when we finally found Debra's place we knew it was the one.
If you want a New England-esque country wedding or simply a great spot to throw a party, this is the place. We had about 90 people, which seemed the perfect size, though more could have easily be accommodated. Our big top tent and all the tables fit perfectly on the lawn just off the gorgeous back patio. We even had live band with a dance floor all lit up underneath it. Nothing could have been more perfect!
The house amenities are all modern, updated and elegant. It has the feel of living in a cabin, but also luxurious. The kitchen is large and equipped for a professional chef. You can throw a great dinner party in there. The living room and bedrooms are all comfy and nice. You can definitely sleep as many as she says and house your entire family comfortably to keep the celebration going all weekend!
I wholeheartedly recommend Debra's place! Not only is it gorgeous, you will be well-taken care of throughout the planning process!!
This property far exceeded our expectations. The house was lovely, there was plenty of room for our young adult children, and the surrounding gardens, fields, and trails were as beautiful as promised. We even enjoyed a chilly, rainy day by taking full advantage of the working fireplace, and the well-stocked video and game closet. Would love to return with our kids or a bunch of friends for a fall or winter weekend. It really is a perfect house and property for such a trip.
I strongly recommend this house for anyone looking to host a large extended family or group of friends. It is totally updated and comfortable with every kind of convenience you would need in a rental house. We were a group of 11 stretching over four different generations from my 86 year old mother to my 7 year old grandson and everyone was comfortable and enjoyed the venue. Just wish that we had more time to enjoy the trails and the falls and the outdoor activities in the area. Next time! I would definitely rent this property again!
We had an absolutely wonderful time at "Locke Falls Farm." The property was amazing, with rolling meadows and pastures, divided by split rail fencing and landscaped stone walls, and plenty of lovely floral gardens. There was a national forest which joined up to the yard, which was full of well maintained hiking trails, which followed pleasant brooks and a river.
The house was well cared for and had everything we needed and more. There was plenty of space, so much in fact that we hope to make a return future trip with some extended family!
The area was very nice, and we enjoyed spending a day at Mount Washington (just an hour drive away). We also visited the "Castle in the Clouds" (1/2 hour away) and the shops in North Conway (1/2 hour away). On the way home, we passed through a very quaint town called "Meredith," which was also a short drive, which sits right on a lake....that will be a destination next time we come!
Very nice rental, and highly recommended. We can only imaging how beautiful it is in the fall!
Debra, the owner, was a delight to work with as well, and was very welcoming. Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy your home!!
Amazing hiking and cross country skiing or snow shoeing right out the back door.
