Come stay in an apartment in the Maple Grove Farmhouse built in 1823. The house is surrounded by 140 acres of fields and woods for great hiking. Take a walk to the beaver pond that sits at the foot of the hill; if you get up early enough you will see the beavers. Swing under the huge maples or walk through flower beds and vegetable gardens or just sit and write. Cozy up inside with a good book or whip up a great meal. This is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Whether visiting family for a few weeks or viewing the magnificent colors of our New England fall foliage or on a romantic winter escape, enjoy your own five rooms of tranquil space.
Visit Brimfield, the Antique capital of the world, Sturbridge Village, see life as it used to be, Quabbin Reservoir with hundreds of acres of trails, Wauchusett mountain skiing or disc golfing at the Barre Falls Dam. If attending a wedding at Allen Harding Estate, Hartman's Herb farm, meditating at Barre's Buddist Insight Meditation Society, or visiting your student at Eagle Hill School, Maple Grove is right nearby.
Maple Grove Farmhouse is the house I grew up in. We lived here surrounded by fields, woods, and a beaver pond. We were a family with eight children and a large dairy farm. Now we enjoy the swings and lawn chairs under the beautiful maples.
I love our small New England town, stone walls, and beautiful town common. The townspeople are the best! When we had a fire in 1963 and half the house was gone, Barre townspeople volunteered and helped my Dad rebuild. That's why I love living here!
Our house has plenty of room and lovely outdoor spaces. It is quiet, rural, and friendly. Perfect place to come for a month and visit relatives, a girls get-a-way, to spend quiet retreat time, or visit New England's attractions.
