Our lovely farmhouse is a great place for your group to gather for a vacation or a work retreat. After the heating season, when all rooms are used, are two first floor bedrooms and four bedrooms upstairs. We have two small bathrooms one on each floor. The house has space, quiet and privacy in a beautiful rural setting, minutes from the center of several New England communities.
Our house was built in 1830. It has been updated with modern amenities while maintaining the antique charm. The floors are a little uneven, the stairs are a little steep, and the bathrooms small. Balanced with these reminders of 17th century living are large bedrooms and a warm and welcoming home in a beautiful setting. We have a large open concept kitchen with seating in the kitchen and dining area, a comfortable living room and a laundry room.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms. One is a large corner bedroom with lovely southwestern light. This bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed. In one corner is a gas fireplace, in the other is a tiny bathroom complete with shower, sink and toilet. Next to the kitchen is the other bedroom with a full size futon bed, with memory foam and fiber bed pads for comfort. This bedroom is large and faces the backyard. It is a distance from each bathroom and next to the kitchen and laundry area.
On the second floor are four bedrooms. One is a large sunny southeast facing corner bedroom with a queen size futon bed, with memory foam and fiber bed pads for comfort. Then are the two smaller bedrooms, one on the southwest corner, another facing the back yard. They each have one twin size portable folding bed with fiber bed pad for comfort. Toward the back of the second floor is another large bedroom furnished with a comfortable full size bed. This bedroom is connected to a large carpeted dressing room. The dressing room may be entered from ground level as the house is set into the hill. The second floor bathroom is small but complete with a shower with bathtub, corner sink and toilet.
You will have access to the whole home and surrounding acres of land. The rooms and buildings where we store our belongings will be closed to access.
I live nearby and may be reached easily if needed.
A continental breakfast is presented upon your arrival, with breakfast ingredients stocked in the fridge and cabinets along with the coffee, tea and other necessities.
My NH Meals and Rentals license number is 059642 The 9% NH Meals and Rentals Tax will be added to your total stay prior to booking.
There is another listing for this property:
Our neighborhood is quiet and rural, but right near all the wonders of the Monadnock region. There is a T-Bird gas station right down the road to the right at Bond's Corner, a CVS and Shaws down the road to the left in Peterborough. 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.
The Monadnock Region has been my home for 30 years. I grew up in Connecticut, but spent 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
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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).
Your home is absolutely lovely and our stay was great. Can't wait to come back again. Communication was top notch from start to finish. Thank you so much!!
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.
