Our neighborhood is quiet and rural, but right near all the wonders of the Monadnock region.

Del Rossi's Restaurant is in Dublin, and Nature's Green Grocer Market and Restaurant are right down the hill in West Peterborough.

We have a three car detached garage and there is ample parking in the driveway.

About Louise Werden

The Monadnock Region has been my home for 30 years. I grew up in Connecticut, and we spent our summers up here. I attended Parsons School of Design in New York City. There, I learned space planning and design. I have traveled extensively since childhood, staying in varied accommodations throughout the world. From pensions and bed and breakfasts in Europe and the US, from fine city hotels to regional inns, as well as trains and ocean liners. I enjoy using my knowledge of design in combination with a variety of travel experiences to provide a comfortable and livable space for guests.

Louise Werden purchased this house in 2004

Why Louise Werden chose Monadnock Region

We had lived in Dublin for 20 years, and had looked for a property for a decade before buying this one. The location and size of the house was perfect for our family. Near to town and all amenities, but rural and private. There is also the ability to live only on the first floor which makes this house adaptable for retirement and/or downsizing. This has been a welcoming home for families since it was built in 1830.

What makes this house unique

It was the light and the sunsets that we love most about the house, as well as the first floor open concept with a den as well as a living room. The pantry is like a second kitchen with a sink, washer dryer and many cabinets. Storage capacity in this house is abundant. There is great flexibility in the plan. We are currently using the second living room as a bedroom to provide first floor living. There are several rooms on the second floor that are furnished as bedrooms as well. Even with all this space there remains a comfortable warmth to the house that we enjoy.

Great house for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend for a wedding in Jaffery. The house had plenty of rooms and space for 5 of us. The house was clean everywhere. The kitchen had some staple items (sugar,coffee,tea,water,oj,bread). It was located on a quiet road and the scenery around during the fall was absolutely beautiful. The house had wifi too! We were provided with clean sheets and towels. Like the title, it's a great house for the price! If we're ever up in New Hampshire, we would definitely stay here again! Thank you very much for everything!

A great place to stay in the Monadnock region.

  • 5 of 5

A large clean house, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and beautiful grounds. Everything we needed for a memorable weekend. The bathrooms are small but this was not a problem for us. The owner was great to work with and refunded my deposit promptly. I would definately stay here again. Thank you, Louise.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We found the property to be exactly as described by the homeowner. It was immaculate and appeared to have been freshly painted (walls and ceilings). The kitchen was wonderful and welcoming. Louise was helpful with any questions that we had prior to our stay. As we were warned, our GPS did not bring us correctly to the property....use Louise's directions! We would definitely stay at the farmhouse again if we had a need to be in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying! I appreciate the recognition for the extensive painting job that was completed the winter of 2014! The whole interior was repainted, and floors were sanded and finished with several coats of tung oil by a master craftsman. We have been enjoying them as well! Kind Regards, Louise

Nice Old Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice short stay at the farmhouse. It was impeccably clean. The kitchen was very nice. The house was very old and as such had uneven floors and walls (only important if you have a new little walker or elderly in your party). The bathrooms were VERY small, but adequate and again, very clean. Many thoughtful touches throughout. The beds were quite comfortable.

We drove into Boston for the day to see the historic sites. We went on a Sunday so the traffic wasn't too bad. It was however still a bit of a drive but one that is possible.

My only complaints about the house were 1) The entry area near the kitchen (presumably a mud room) smelled off (kind of like old garbage). The area was not dirty, so I don't know if a previous guest had sent a bag of garbage that had leaked, or maybe just that it is an old house? 2) The master bedroom had a smell of urine...quite possibly an animal had gone outside, but the smell was rather strong. I looked for any evidence of animals inside but found none. An air freshener we had brought covered the smell. This may not be a problem during your stay. 3) The bedrooms were poorly lit. 4) I didn't like having to make up the beds before using them. This is a personal preference on my part. We had driven over 12 hrs. with 5 children when we arrived. Wrestling with duvet covers and sheets was not what I wanted to be doing. However, it was nice to know that the bedding was clean.

The owner was easy to work with and promptly refunded our deposit. Overall, very pleased. We appreciated the quirks that come with an older home, and thought that the updates were nice.

Last note...if you have very small children (under 5) please note that the steps leading upstairs are steeper than typical and going down them would be difficult for a child in the middle of the night. (I was concerned about our youngest possibly falling if he was looking for a restroom in the middle of the night).

Owner's Response: What a thorough review! The home was built in 1830, and although the bathrooms are tiny and the floors are uneven, it has been updated to today's standards and codes. Reading my listing thoroughly is recommended to see if the home is the proper accomodation for you. Communicating with me when staying in my home is very important. The home should not smell "off" in any way. Contact me immediately if anything does not seem right when staying in the home. I am easy to reach and happy to answer questions, and will stop by to help.

lovely place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed are stay at the farm house. The area is beautiful and quite. The home is very clean and the kitchen is very modern with all the amenities you need to fix a meal. The living room and bedrooms are comfortable. The only problem, which was not a major problem, was the downstairs bathroom was very small. There is a bathroom upstairs that is bigger, but I can not climb stairs. I would recommend the house to anyone who is looking for a nice quite beautiful spot to stay.
