|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Situated on a 105-acre working organically managed farm this newly renovated farmhouse is a perfect home away from home. Tranquil setting with amazing views in every season and located in Walpole, New Hampshire, said to be one of the most picturesque towns in all of New England.
On the first floor of the Farmhouse there is a large kitchen, a living room with satellite TV and DVD, a full bathroom, and one bedroom with a king-sized bed. On the second floor are two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and one with two twin beds, as well as a bathroom with a shower stall. There is a sofa bed in the living room on the first floor which could sleep two additional guests. With southern exposure the rooms are always bright and airy.
This is a self-catering accommodation so breakfast is not included as it is for our B&B guests, but we stock the farmhouse's kitchen with breakfast basics like milk, juice, coffee, tea, cereal, and our own farm fresh eggs to get you started. Farmhouse guests have access to the bounty of our extensive organically managed gardens which include small fruits and a wide variety of herbs, edible flowers and vegetables. Our own pasture-raised meats (100% grass-fed beef and lamb, pork, chicken, turkey) and additional farm fresh eggs are available for purchase.
Relax on the farmer's porch in the late afternoon sun overlooking the fields around us. Play horse shoes or use the wood provided to build a fire in the fire pit. Gas grill with propane and picnic table provided. Swing set/jungle gym, sand box, child toys, pack and plays, baby gates and booster chairs available at no extra cost. Babysitters easily arranged for that much needed adult time.
I grew up in Walpole, moved away and never thought I'd be back to this rural community, but now that I'm here raising my family I couldn't imagine a better place to live. Lots of open space, fresh air, starlit skies, interaction with animals and nature and all things 'real'.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1998
Along with my brother and sister-in-law and my parents we as a family have worked tirelessly since 1998 to bring this defunct dairy farm back to it's former glory. We're passionate about caring for this historic property, raising real food sustainably and providing you with as clean and comfortable a stay as possible.
Just a short walk from the Farmhouse is our B&B where we rent 3 Inn guest rooms and also 2 cottages. Should your party exceed the maximum sleeping number of the farmhouse or your friends plan to visit during your stay you have additional separate sleeping capacity right on site. Since we also operate a B&B on the property we have additional amenities such as a fully stocked rental (not only linens and towels, but milk, juice, farm fresh eggs upon arrival too) and concierge services to help make your stay perfect.
Being a grass-based sustainable farm with more than 100 acres the surroundings are clean and quiet with no light pollution to spoil the amazing night skies. Our location is rural yet just minutes to downtown Walpole - the best of both worlds. Walpole has been a draw for centuries for notable visual and literary artists and is now home to a world renown chocolatier, fine dining, a local tavern, a winery with the most amazing views, cheese makers, a farmer's market, farm stands, locally made ice cream, an art cooperative, several unique shops and more.
We're a grass based organically managed farm raising 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, heritage breeds of pork, pasture raised chickens, turkeys and eggs. Our meat products are for sale right from the farm and we encourage our guests if they wish to pick from our extensive organic vegetable and flower gardens during their stay as well. Collect your own farm fresh eggs for breakfast, visit the farm animals, hike our on site woodland trails or walk to neighboring orchard to pick nearly 200 varieties of fruit. If you wish for a simpler time and love fresh, clean food there's no better place to get a taste.
However, if you're looking to explore the region, being on the border of Vermont and just north of Massachusetts our farmhouse is ideally located to explore all the other magnificent little 'gems' the region has to offer.
We had an absolutely wonderful wedding on the farm. The Inn, cottages and farmhouse were all very much a part of the joy! Jackie worked so hard and Chris and Caitlin became good friends as we bonded outside under the stars. It was everything we had hoped it would be and more! Thank you.
We stayed at the Sunnyside farmhouse with our 2 kids ages 2 and 5 and the grandparents, and had a great time! We really enjoyed being close up with the animals (I especially loved waking up to see the cows grazing just outside our window, and our kids especially loved the pigs). I liked teaching them where our food comes from and we all learned more about sustainable farming. As a family run inn and farm, we felt very welcomed. Thank you, Jackie and Caitlin! The farmhouse was clean and it was nice to cook most of our meals in the kitchen. We bought chickens and beef raised there on the farm to cook and enjoy! A specialty local market and a bigger supermarket are close by. Our kids also really liked the little playground. The view from the farmhouse of the hills dotted with color and the pastures was beautiful. Alyson's apples being right next door was fantastic. We did a lot of apple picking.
Location wise, I was so pleased. Being from the west coast, I had no idea what to expect, but Walpole is such a cute, quintessential New England town and the Monadnock region is just ideal for viewing fall foliage. Though we were told it wasn't a great year for colors, it was still so beautiful. We didn't have to travel very far to see covered bridges, visit an organic dairy farm or go hiking. You can go on a beautiful hike right on the farm's property, in fact! In addition, you have easy access to VT as Walpole lies right along the Connecticut river. If we had more time and the hurricaine hadn't taken out some of the roads, we definitely would've spent more time in VT as well.
Bottom line, I highly recommend Inn at Valley Farms if you want to relax, enjoy nature and organic farming and explore the surrounding areas.
Our picture-perfect farm is an easy 20 minute drive from Keene, NH and on the border of Vermont making Walpole a perfect choice to explore all the region has to offer. Our accommodations also include individual rooms and two cottages if you need additional overflow lodging.
Visit the farm animals and tour our organically managed pasture-based farm to learn where real food comes from. Hike our interpretive woodland trail or cross country ski right out the front door. Walk to nearby orchard that grows nearly 200 varieties of fruit to Pick-Your-Own raspberries, blueberries, peaches, plums, pears, apples, pumpkins, winter squash and more in season.
Don't miss a trip to world renown Burdick Chocolates for a taste of some of the world's best chocolates, fine European pastries or enjoy lunch or dinner in their French inspired bistro which uses many locally sourced foods from neighboring farms. A tavern, diner, pizza parlor, and local grocery all in town as well.
Be sure to visit Walpole Mountain View Winery which offers tours and tastings and breathtaking views from its hilltop location. Premium ice cream, locally produced cheese, farmers' markets, free Sunday concerts on the town common, an art cooperative, several unique shops, one of the U.S.'s top rated 9-hole golf courses, 17 conservation areas, swimming holes and more all located right in our quaint New England village.
Covered bridges, antique shops, tax-free shopping, unique museums, and more swimming holes abound nearby. We've lived in the area for more than 35 years and are happy to help you plan your stay based on your interests, just ask.
