I am a fulltime teacher
in Massachusetts, I use the new Hampshire house as a retreat on weekends and vacations when it is not rented, as do my three sons and their families.
Ailsa Steinert purchased this farmhouse in 1960
The house belonged to my mother in law who lived there full time for many years. My husband and I kept it after she died and have used it happily for years.
I am a writer as well as a teacher. I have brought students in workshop groups to hike and write there close to nature as I and my own family have done.
This place was great.Exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of space, very peaceful and comfortable....
We found the communication with the owner was wonderful, making the booking and organising of our holiday extremely easy. Ailsa's openness and flexibility answering multiple messages on the board made our booking from England a breeze.
The location is picturesque, and the house had all of the amenities needed to make you feel at home- washing machine , dryer dishwasher etc. Sledges and skates were accessible if you wished to indulge in the snow and winter weather. The location gave enough distance to be in the country, but with continued access to the rest of the world via wifi, & easy access to Hanover, Lebanon and Woodstock where we went skiing for the day.
The house was perfect for the five of us - 2 adults and three children, aged 8-2, and easily accommodated everyone who came to visit us - we were able to host our extended family and friends and still had plenty of space to relax and not feel we were in each other's pockets. We had a fantastic Christmas celebration and meal for 12 and it was fabulous to be in the farmhouse.
With young children we felt entirely at ease in our surroundings and didn't feel that we were in someone's else's home. This was a true blessing as it made our Christmas a very much needed relaxed event .
The pictures within the advert don't give a true reflection of how large the house is and how much space is available in a four bedroom house, with a large lounge with high ceilings, a snug , den area and dining room .
We experienced a proper New England Snow Storm and was very impressed how quickly the drive was ploughed and maintained during this particular storm.
I would highly recommend this property for a holiday/vacation , whether you're a large family or a couple who wished to stay cosy with the various wood stoves. It was lovely to unwind, unplug and relax and feel at home in such a lovely and eclectic house. We stayed for two weeks and could have easily stayed longer. Thank you for a fabulous and wonderful holiday x
Wonderful New England Hill Farm was everything the listing advertised and then some. Ailsa was very helpful with a last minute schedule change and communicated very well with us throughout the booking process. We felt that the place was reasonably clean, comfortable and well supplied,. The WiFi service was quite reliable (cellular phone service with AT&T not so good, Verizon seemed bettter). We stayed for the most part of two weeks and the only thing that could have been better would be three weeks!
The owner was helpful and everything went smoothly. Any small problems were taken care of quickly and the house met our expectations. Thank you.
Spent two weeks in Ailsa"s farmhouse. So quaint and peaceful and the scenery was so beautiful. We both grew up in this area and it was close to family and friends . Enjoyed sitting under the apple tree, having cookouts and enjoying the wildflowers. My little toy poodle loved the cows. The brown and white cow seem to take a special interest in him. Eight tom turkeys would stroll across the property every morning and just below the farmhouse we waited five minutes for 60 plus mother turkeys and babies to cross the road. Enjoyed the peace and quiet and wildlife , the blueberries and black raspberries that grew in the black yard were an added bonus. We loved the farmhouse so much we are planning on spending two months next year.
The family had a great time. This is a very old farm house but we had a lot of fun. Wished I would of had a fan or two it was a little stuff at night but by morning it was cold off.
My family had a lovely time in Canaan this summer. My children picked apples, berries and herbs on the property, biked in the driveway, and enjoyed checking out the resident groundhog and cows. The spacious house is well loved and the bathrooms are recently updated. Ailsa responded quickly to any concerns and questions. We greatly enjoyed nearby attractions: we swam at Canaan Street Lake every day, hiked Cardigan Mt three times and enjoyed the local farmers markets and farms. Hanover is only 30 minutes away with King Arthur Baking Co., the magnificent Montshire Science Museum, high quality grocery stores, and plenty of restaurants.
Many woodland trails for walking; cardigan Mt close by for hiking, also Canaan Lake swimming and canoeing. Hanover NH and Woodstock Vt areas for sightseeing and shopping, restaurants,etc, within half hour by car...Hanover closer.
