Joan Freeland McGowan purchased this house in 1957
The house is charming both inside and out. Built during the Civil War, the original house was tiny. Over the years other rooms were added, including a second floor bathroom. A barn and picket fence were added then later removed.
The front porch has an uninterrupted, sweeping mountain view. The area is peaceful and abounds with birds and wildlife. The home remains a quiet, comfortable get-away for those who want to relax. The nights are dark and, on a clear night, the sky is flooded with stars and you can see the Milky Way!
This is a charming house that worked very well for our family of 5 (including teenagers). The area is convenient to White Mountains National Park and within a 15-minute drive to ski slopes and conveniences such as grocery stores, restaurants, and a movie theater. Being in a rural area, there was no light pollution to block the view of the stars - the night sky was amazing! The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, cookware, etc., and it included a dishwasher and microwave. The bedrooms were good-sized, with comfortable beds. There are window units (air conditioning) in two of the bedrooms, but most of the time they weren't necessary, even in July. The house was clean, well-maintained, and obviously treasured by the owners. Speaking of the owners, they were extremely helpful and made scheduling our stay simple and easy. Definitely a good option for families or for a group of adults traveling together.
Our fourth time at freeland acres, not the last. Beautiful house, great views, caring and attentive owners. Would definitely stay again.
Everything in the house was clean, functional and operational. Plenty of pots for cooking. Big Webber charcoal gril outside. Spot very quiet with amazing front view on a mountain. Within one hour max of distance from most peaks you may want to climb. Very very relaxing. Would return anytime. Kids loved it too.
We enjoyed our NH getaway at this charming cottage. Sometimes
photos can be deceiving, not for this house. It was as pretty as the photos suggested! The views were spectacular, the house very
comfortable and the cool August temperature appreciated by our
family! Not knowing much about the area we really enjoyed your book of things to do! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!!
From the moment we arrived, we knew it would be a fun and relaxing week. There was a spirit of welcome in the home itself, which was really clean and very well maintained. One of our favorite things was the piano! Every day of our stay we each took turns playing, me not so much since I'm not a pianist. We spent hours on the porch and in the yard playing games, reading and just soaking in the views and listening to the birds. The owners were so wonderful and welcoming with phone calls and emails. They also had lots of suggestions for things to do like discovering the swimming hole nearby and a not to distant hike to a waterfall. We are a family of 5, all grown up, and we all loved our stay. Many thanks! I recommend it.
Freeland Acres is the perfect getaway home - a quaint, comfortable, well equipped farmhouse with a million dollar view! Ideally located to access a month's worth of day trips but also wonderfully far enough off the beaten path to enjoy a peaceful, refreshing, beautiful rural setting! Our thanks to the gracious owners, we are already plotting our return!
