Your home away from home that is all about R&R and reconnecting with the outdoors. A spacious modern suite with all you need for a perfect get away. There is no TV so you can thoroughly enjoy the peace & quiet. We do have free wifi. Cell phone coverage is spotty. Enjoy your coffee or wine out on the deck listening to nature. We have a gorgeous secluded 25 acre wooded lot. Enjoy!
This suite was all built by Brett over 3 years; completed in 2011. All appliances are new full sized stainless steel. Soap stone corner sink. Granite counter. A dining table that seats 4. Linens are provided for short term guests. If you are staying longer than 2 weeks we do ask you provide your own linens (queen sized sheets & towels). We have plenty of blankets & quilts for both beds. The sofa pulls out easily & has a very comfortable larger mattress. The bathroom has a standup spacious glass corner shower with over head heater, light & fan. Washer & dryer are located in the bathroom. Please bring your own laundry soap. Just ask to use the BBQ grill (you'll need your own charcoal). The corner gas wood stove heats the space nicely.
We are in an outdoor paradise with all winter, summer, spring, and fall activities. Just 90 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from the Manchester airport, 20 minutes from Colby Sawyer College in New London.
Summer is absolutely gorgeous in New England. Weather varies & frequently changes but can range from 50-80's. We do have a window unit air conditioner if needed. And there is a very large ceiling fan.
Fall leaf peeping is at it's best here in NH peeking around 2nd week of October (depending on the weather) and going for a long drive or hike is a must.
Winter adventure is all around as we are very close to skiing at Mt. Sunapee Resort, Ragged Mountain, Pats Peak, and Eastman Cross Country Center. We generally cross country ski the nearby snowmobile trails. You can snowshoe our property for some great exercise.
4 Wheel drive and or All wheel drive are highly recommended in this area. The house is located ~1 mile off the main road and is a very compact dirt road. The road is town maintained for snow plowing and sanding.

We love living in the woods in NH. We came here for the clean air and the peace and quiet from SLC, Utah. At night the woods come alive with crickets, owls, and wildlife. There is something to be said for living closer to a lake and a ski resort than to a grocery store!
You might spot turkeys, fox, deer and moose on the property.
Get away from your busy life -- enjoy nature & relax.
The absence of a TV is intentional. We want people to experience a vacation away from media.
WIFI is free.
The studio was comfortable, clean and quiet. Cindi and Brett were great hosts-available if needed. They greeted us when we arrived and gave us some advice on dining and outdoor adventures and put the ac in the window which we needed one night.
We rode our mountain bikes on the Sugar River Trial which was beautiful, but the trail had some sandy spots that made it very difficult to pedal. There were several ATV's on the trail also which was fine except when they came by and kicked up a lot of dust.
We also did a 2-mile climb to the summit of Mt. Sunapee which was a great trail but difficult if you are not in decent shape. The view at the summit was beautiful. You could also take a ski lift to the top and walk down the mountain. The Adventure Park was also open with other cool stuff to try especially for families.
The State Beach also rents kayaks/canoes for an hour or a half day starting Memorial Day weekend.
Flying Goose had great nachos and my husband loved the beer brewed on site. They have a solar-powered brewery on site that we would have loved to have checked out but Brewer works weekdays only.
Pizza at Bubba's was good - wood fired pizza oven. Grab a pizza to go and find a spot across the street overlooking the lake.
Sanctuary Farm Ice Cream was delicious - fun place to hang out with kids. Animals to pet, etc.
Mill Stone on Main St. had delicious food, drinks and excellent service. French Dip was delicious.
Sunapee Harbor was quaint with shops and small restaurants. Preservation Center was worth a visit.
The studio is perfect for 2-4 people - huge, well-stocked, with large windows overlooking woods, a large deck & private entry. Conveniently located near Mt. Sunapee Ski Resort. Also, bunch of convenience stores & super markets nearby or on the way close-by. Cindi & Brett are very friendly & accommodating. When I forgot to buy eggs on my way, Cindi readily provided their own farm-grown, organic eggs. We will definitely come back and I highly recommended Cindi-Brett's Studio.
When we decided to return to New England this fall there was no question where we would stay. We were thrilled to be able to visit "Chicken Farmer I Love You" once again. We had a delightful stay in this quiet mountain retreat. Everything was just as we remembered...a lovely, cozy studio in a beautiful, tranquil setting. Cindi and Brett are such gracious hosts and made sure that our every need was met. We highly recommend this property for a quiet get-away and hope to come again.
Excellent place to stay. Quiet and very comfortable. A pretty area to experience the outdoors, Sunapee is so close.
I had the chance to stay at chicken farm for a weekend and my girlfriend and I loved it. The hosts were really helpful and friendly. We would definitely visit again in the future.
We had a lovely stay here. Brett and Cindi were great hosts and had great suggestions for the area. The studio was very close to Sunapee, which made it perfect for a ski getaway. The room has a nice little kitchenette and was very private.
