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.

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.

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.

The property and house were simply beautiful. My family spent a long weekend exploring the land and visiting local parks and shops. I'd highly recommend staying here if you get a chance. We plan to come back!

Delightful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

"Hilltop Home" is a lovely, somewhat secluded place to relax and recharge. All necessities are available. From a painters point of view, this location is optimal. There are endless places to sketch and paint in the vicinity. Additionally, Tamworth is a dear town with lovely, helpful people, great farmers market and summer theater. The owner is available and prompt to reply when there are questions. This vacation has been a true pleasure.

Picturesque escape in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed one week but we could easily spend a month and never be bored. The view from the patio of the mountains is nothing short of breathtaking. The area is quiet, peaceful and pleasant which makes for a perfect environment to unwind in.

There is only a short drive to some of the best hiking destinations in North America. At the end of the day of activities, the cottage awaits with its gorgeous views.

Highly recommended.
