Originally settled in 1903 by ancestors of the current owners, the farmhouse stands today in its original position overlooking a hops field operated by another descendant of the original settlers.
With plenty of room to roam inside and out, the Hop Hill house has a main floor master bedroom with a queen sized bed and attached bath and 3 bright and spacious upstairs bedrooms equipped with double beds. There is an additional full bath upstairs and a half bath downstairs. The living room is large enough for the whole family to gather in comfortably and the dining room can seat up to 10 easily. The kitchen is fully equipped just like at home including a dishwasher for easy cleanup! If you are looking for a quiet place to sit and read or do a puzzle, check out the den. Help yourself to one of the many novels!
There are 40 plus acres of woods and fields to hike or mountain bike or just relax under the shade of the maple trees and watch the hops grow. Grill out on the back deck and then enjoy a campfire under the stars! The stars will never seem brighter than what they are out in the countryside! If you are lucky, you might even see the Northern Lights!
