This 4/5-bedroom rural home is directly adjacent to 400 acres of trust land, parks and trails, with sweeping views of hills, mountains and rolling countryside just a short walk down the country lane, yet only a five-minute drive down to Peterborough town with its cute restaurants, bars, shops, galleries and other entertainment.
Guests have access to four bedrooms (two large queens, and two doubles) to sleep comfortably a total of eight people. Each room has access to its very own bathroom, two of which are en-suite. Further amenities include large and fully-equipped eat-in kitchen, dining room, living room, TV room/work space (with HD TV), additional den (with wood stove and 4K HD TV), two fireplaces, as well as the house perennial gardens, the adjacent forest, and small winding country roads located directly out the front door. The property overlooks woodland, trust property, and national park, yet still located on New Hampshire Route 123 for convenient access to Peterborough and surrounding towns.
Air conditioners in each bedroom, as well an extremely robust heating/boiler system, mean no matter the conditions, the house is always the perfect temperature.
We will make an additional very large queen suite overlooking the former Morison orchards available for an additional $80-120 per night depending on season, for a total of five bedrooms - three queens, two doubles, with 5.5 bathrooms, comfortably accommodating ten people.

Only stays of 3 days or more will be accepted due to the size of the house and preparation involved. It will be possible to indicate closer to the time of the reservation if opting for the additional suite, however it must correspond to overall duration of the rental.
