About the property

Single Story, 2 Bedroom home with Mountain Views.

Quiet and secluded rural hilltop home on 36 acres, surrounded by blueberry field and forests with woods roads to explore. Two bedroom, full bath, full kitchen with eat in dining, washer/dryer, and screened breakfast patio overlooking the mountains.

Nearby hiking in the Sandwich Range Wilderness Area, numerous natural areas, and 15 minutes to swimming at Bear Camp Pond and Chocorua Lake.

A landline phone is available local calls and for emergencies, and there are lots of options in the village to access wifi/cell service in a comfortable setting. A variety of DVD's are available at the local library in town if you need an evening or rainy day movie to play on your computer!

Surrounding towns (N. Conway, Sandwich, Moultonboro, Wolfeboro) have a variety of activities for all ages. The Squam Lake Science Center is always a highlight for kids (Holderness) and is only 1/2 hour away!

Be sure to be in touch if you would like more ideas for things to do. We hope you will enjoy the silence, sights, and sounds of the surrounding forests and trails.

About Lynne Flaccus

I am a naturalist and educator and currently work at a local land trust in the area.

Why Lynne Flaccus chose White Mountains

The house and land belonged to my grandparents, then my parents, and is now owned by my siblings and me. We grew up spending summers here, and have lived at the house off and on as adults at different times. The house, the lands and the Tamworth community hold a special place in our hearts.

The views of the ever changing mountains in front of the house , and the numerous places to walk from the door provide a quiet place to relax.

What makes this house unique

The house is simple and comfortable and offers a place to unplug and relax. There are amazing community trails in addition to the trails of the White Mountain Forest and Sandwich Range Wilderness. Local swimming spots (Chocorua Lake, White Lake State Park, and Bearcamp Pond) allow for cool swims and places to paddle in the heat of summer.

Tamworth is a small but thriving community with a wonderful farmers market (often with music!), events at the Lyceum and Remick Farm Museum and other nearby venues.

The local library has events for kids, provides free wi-fi and is a wonderful resource for a short or long term visit.

Notes:
This house and 36 acres is 6 miles outside of Tamworth on a dirt road, with many wood roads to walk, nearby trail heads to the Sandwich Wilderness Area(10 min), fishing in the Swift River, swimming at Bearcamp Pond (15 min), Lake Chocorua, and White Lake; and many back roads to explore by bike. Tamworth has much to offer visiting guests, including the Tamworth Distillery, The Barnstormers Theater, The Other Store, Lyceum, activities at Remick Farm Museum, Saturday Farmers markets, music, and events at the local library. A great place to get away from it all while finding plenty to do and see. Conway is 1/2 hour drive north. As this is a rural area surrounded by fields and forest, it comes with the usual mix of mosquitos and ticks, some years more than others (as much of New England!). A mix of repellents are available at the house, and the screens on the porch allow for views of the mountains while sitting outside.

Breathtaking views, beautiful setting, well cared for retreat

  • 5 of 5

The views alone are well worth the visit. They exceeded our expectations. This is a clean home that has been loved and well cared for over time. It had great charm, plenty of space and the screen porch was an added bonus with idyllic views even in the rain. Lynn was attentive and easy to communicate with. Tamworth was relaxing and quaint. We highly recommend the visit.

Not worth it. Get a house in North Conway that will actually have amenities

  • 1 of 5

Really disappointed with my stay. I rented this home for my 21st birthday with my boyfriend. Let me tell you right now there is absolutely no cell phone service, no wifi and no TV. The nearest convenient/grocery store is about a half hour away. The thing that upset me the most was that I wanted privacy for my stay, and Lynne the owner stayed the first night in one of her cabins on the property. I rented a house on 36 acres for 1 reason- privacy. Not thrilled about that at all. In September of 2015 I rented a house in North Conway for the same price, it was on a lake, had cell service/wifi/tv, kayaks and boats on the property, for the exact same price. Don't bother with this place, you can find so much better for the price. Very disappointed. Only good thing was the view.

Owner's Response: Hi Ashley; I'm sorry you did not enjoy your visit and for any misunderstandings you had with our communications. The house is listed as a place to get away and enjoy peace and quiet; a place to unplug. The description indicates there is no TV or wifi, and that cellular service varies by carrier; true throughout the Tamworth area. I appreciate your feedback, and would welcome suggestions for improving the description in our listing so others will know the place is right for their personal interests. Lynne

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second Summer at this property. It was perfect in every way. The house has everything you need to have an enjoyable and relaxing vacation. The property is absolutely beautiful with breathtaking mountain views and wild blackberrys, blueberries, peaches, pears, and a vegetable garden for fresh meals.

The house and property are also great for children. We brought our 3-year-old twin daughters, and they had a fantastic time. They especially enjoyed the scenic train ride in Conway.

I high recommend this property and look forward to returning.

What a beautiful property! Well managed landscape and home and the view is spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip! Lynne provided everything we could ever want. Unplugging from technology and tuning into nature was a welcomed vacation for our family. Outdoor yoga at sunrise, local nature hikes, quaint town jaunts, preparing family meals and evening with books were just perfect! We can't wait to visit Tamworth again!

Breath taking views, Peace and solitude

  • 5 of 5

Our cabin , nestled in the secluded woods near old Tamworth village, was a charming home away from home. Clean and comfortable. Most everything was available, less a Television, and wifi. Don't use AT&T for Cell phone as there is NO service. Mid June was hit hard with the mosquito s and copious amounts of vicious TICKS which prevented the family from truly enjoying the serenity the wooded mountainside offered. The home was cozy and easy to get to. Small children might need supervision outside as We encountered 3 black bears on two occasions on the property. Bring protection when hiking about the dark forest of the area. The only scary thing about being isolated (some neighbors nearby) is not getting the home phone to work, and with no cell phone reception, emergencies could not be handled in a speedy fashion. Aside from that, We would recommend a stay at this home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your stay and for taking good care of the place while you were there! Yes, this has been an unusually "good" year for ticks and mosquitos with the warm wet weather; good for them anyway. Since I live in the area I guess I am used to them! I've left a supply of various repellents and a note about prevention at the house based on your comments. The landline phone is for local calls only which includes 911 and any other emergencies. Cell phones do vary depending on carrier as well as location in the house. I've made updates to information on the rental site based on your comments and I appreciate your in-put!

Solace on the Hilltop

  • 5 of 5

After a tiring semester of graduate work and working full time caring for the sick, I must admit this house was a piece of paradise. It was perfectly located on a hilltop with amazing views and the feeling of peace. The fireplace was unexpected and really proved to make a huge difference, bringing back that nostalgic feeling from my past. On my third day I saw a rainbow that extended through the entire mountain range from the windows in the kitchen, it was beautiful. I highly recommend you take the time to go to Tamworth and visit the Sandwich mountains. Try Rosies for some excellent breakfast food, and the Chinese restaurant truly is magical. Thank you to the owner for being so attentive to our needs, we were grateful. I will be back again!

P.S- being a dog friendly owner is the reason I was able to come enjoy this beautiful property. Thank you for being so understanding to pets, as a frequent traveler, this means the world to me.
