This historic farmhouse sits on 3 acres with a stream. The screened in porch overlooks a large, grassy backyard. Oil heat is accompanied by a wood stove and a working fireplace. The kitchen and bathrooms are completely renovated in a country style. Includes cedar hot tub and outdoor shower.
If you love historical architecture with modern accents you will love this farmhouse. It is especially perfect for family reunions, wedding accommodations, and weekend ski trips.
In the Summer, the house is equidistant from Lake Winipesaukee and Squam. We offer guest passes for Moultonborough beaches. There is a system of hiking trails directly across the street. There are 2 hybrid bicycles available. There are 2 refrigerators--1 in the garage, for extra space when accommodating for large groups of 10. The hot tub is cedar and offers divine night sky viewing after a long day of hiking or skiing. In the winter, snowshoeing and cross country skiing abound. Ski slopes range from 40 minute drives--Gunstock and Waterville Valley--to Bretton Woods, a 90 minute drive, with many mountains in between. The charming villages of Moultonborough (with a classic country store) and Center Sandwich are within a few miles.
