Overview

About the property

The reviews say it all! Location, comfort and that right at home feeling!

If you are looking for a charming farm house in the White Mountains close to shops, restaurants, attractions and has Saco River access with a 400 foot beach, look no further. We've created a home that you will make memories in. The views of the Moat and Chocorua Mountains are beautiful. The house welcomes you to sit out on the farmer's porch and 'sit a spell'. The house has been authentically restored to it's 1860's feel but has today's amenities giving you the best of both worlds. The updated kitchen is open to the family room which has a large wood burning fireplace and TV area. Each of the 3 bedrooms have their own TV's, gas fireplaces, AC's, sitting areas and private bath rooms which makes this house very appealing to a larger family or 3 couples or an in-law situation. The sitting room off of the 3rd bedroom, which had been a rooftop deck, has been enclosed and remodeled to include a pullout couch for extra sleeping, a gas fireplace, a Smart TV, a private deck and entrance and a coffee station with fabulous mountain views. In the summer, enjoy the Saco River which is walking distance from our house. You can rent canoes or kayaks from our neighbor, Saco Canoe Rental, and get picked up and dropped off right here at the beach. We think that you'll fall in love with this property as my husband and I did 15 years ago! Read the many reviews and then decide!

About Linda

I am, by nature a person who likes to make others happy and relaxed. I also like to decorate and enjoy meeting new people. Together, with my husband's building and remodeling talents, I feel like we make a good team and provide a unique place for our guests. We are not your cookie cutter type of rental I can assure you. We've gone the extra mile so to speak to add touches that most other rentals don't as we both feel that you, the guest, will appreciate the time, effort and love put behind this fabulous, historical home. Not many other rentals I've seen do a full blown seasonal décor with snowmen in the winter, scarecrows in the fall and birds and flowers in the spring/summer. We do this as we feel that it reflects the thought, energy and love put behind this home and the care that we have for our guests total experience in the time that they're staying here.

Linda purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Linda chose White Mountains

My husband and I have always loved the White Mountains and knew that someday when our children grew up that we would move up here. When this house came on the market we knew that this would be the right place for us to start dreaming about what we'd do with it. It was built in the 1860's which is something that we really liked as we are into older homes. The backdrop of fields, woods and the Saco River were the icing on the cake. We had a vision of making this into a small inn with the charm of yesteryear and the amenities of today. We also feel that the location is perfect with the proximity of North Conway village, the many outlets and attractions and the Saco River.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The views, location to town, shops and restaurants, a welcome basket, each bedroom having their own bathroom, TV, fireplace and siting area and the seasonal decorations all contribute to the home's uniqueness I'd say.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this home as an anniversary/birthtday getaway for my parents. From the moment I contacted the owner Linda, she was so nice and made me feel like this surprise would go off without a hitch, and it did.My parents lost their breath when they arrived at this beautiful Noth Conway country home from the moment they pulled in the driveway. The home is so inviting and is decorated so cute, all the rooms are very large and the house is impecably clean. We want to thank Linda for such a nice welcome basket and for her and Jay's hospitality.This is a beautiful house and property inside and out that provides all the comforts of home. It is in such a convinient location and only about 1-1.5 miles away from downtown North Conway. There is so much to do in the area. Thanks again, Linda and Jay for making my parents' NH getway so memorable. We will definately be back for future vacation stays. This vacation home gets 5 stars from us!

Bedroom 3 has a nice sitting room with a fireplace, TV, coffee maker and small refrigerator and deck with a private entrance. It also has breath taking views of the Moat and Chocorua Mts. It has a pullout couch so that you can have a child out in that space. We do have an air mattress if needed for an additional child. Every guests receives a welcome basket with goodies too!

Linda and Jay do a great job making you feel welcomed and comfortable . The house has a lot of extras for children and Linda has made sure all the little necessities are available for her guests. The location was good for easy access into North Conway.

Charming, kid friendly farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The Old Farmhouse Inn with its proximity to hiking, shopping, Story Land, and numerous other outdoor activities, was a wonderful spot for our 3 generation family vacation. The 3 large bedrooms with private baths and sitting areas made this rental a real find. Our usual preference is for a more secluded location, but the field and river out back made you forget you were so close to the main road. The family enjoyed the walks to the large beach on the Saco River and the tubes that were provided for our use. Thank you Linda and Jay for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Great family getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an ideal Conway vacation home look no further! The owners, Linda and Jay, are wonderful hosts who have thought of everything. The house is filled with some of the best antiques and decorations we had ever seen. The house is extremely clean both inside and out with more than ample room for our party of five adults. The location is excellent with close by restaurants, a bakery, farmers market, tubing/kayak rentals and of course outlet shopping. There are also tubes available for use free of charge provided by Linda and Jay. There is a beach located on the bank of the Saco River just behind the house which you can either walk to or drive to. When we arrived we were welcomed with a impressive and thoughtful bag full of awesome treasures. Jay and Linda were always available if needed but never intruded on our vacation time spent at the house. We have stayed at many vacation rentals but this by far ranks very high on the list!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

The 1860s farmhouse had everything we needed plus extra touches (e.g., everything you need to make s'mores in the fire pit!). It was easy to find and in a great location for the hiking we wanted to do. Thank you!

Another wonderful stay at the Old Farm House

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time staying at the Farm House and we are never disappointed by anything. This house has everything we need for both adults and kids to enjoy a worry-free vacation. The owners are kind, responsive, and delightful to work with. Our kids loved spending their days in the Saco River. Access to the river is amazingly simple and the owners even let us borrow their tubes. We only wish we could have stayed longer, otherwise the vacation and accommodations were perfect!

Our own on the Saco River
Car: recommended

This 1860's, 'Currier and Ives' farm house has been recently remodeled into two warm and cozy attached homes. We have strived to keep the integrity of this period, antique, timber frame home in the decorating and the architecture.

We are located 1.5 miles from the village of North Conway. Story Land is 15 minutes north of us. Echo Lake and Diana's Baths are 10 mintues away for some picturesque swimming and hiking. Come stay with us and enjoy our 'peace of heaven'. We have a 400 foot beach, a fire pit, lawn and indoor games and so much more! This winter, enjoy snowshoeing from your door on 23 acres of woods and fields.

Other Activities: This is a great location as we are close to town but not in the center of it. We have restaurants,grocery stores, banks, a bakery, hairdresser, canoe and kyak rentals, and tennis courts within walking distance. We provide snowshoes and 26 + acres of open fields and wooded paths to enjoy a fun afternoon of outdoor exercise in the winter and beach on the Saco River within walking distance.

Golf: North Conway public golf course is just 5 minutes from us and is open to the public and has a very nice restaurant. It is next to the train station in North Conway.

Ski: Cranmore Mountain, which has been totally updated to accommodate young and old, beginners and pros, tubing, skiing, and a mountain coaster, is only 5 minutes from us! Attitash and King Pine are 20 minutes from us and Loon is 40 minutes away. King Pine is a great ski resort for young children and is family oriented. It has a skating rink, tubing and gentle slopes.
