About this listing
Charming 227 year old farm house in rural New Hampshire yet within 15 minutes to Concord, and skiing. The Contoocook River runs along our property, we have snowshoeing, walking & cross country trails at state park (next door) as well as a hot tub to soak in!
Breakwind Farm is 226 year old 6 acre farm located in a quaint and rural community just outside of Concord NH. In the summer months we have a small organic herb and vegetable garden and sell our veggies at our stand and baked beans at the local Farmers Markets.
Our property runs along the Contoocook River where you can swim and explore by canoe or kayak in the summer and cross country ski or snowshoe in the winter. We are also within walking distance to Elm Brook Park with walking trails, swimming, picnic and recreational facilities. For skiing, scenic vistas, auto road and hiking, Pat's Peak is a 10 minute drive, Mount Kearsage State Park is 20 minutes north, and Mount Sunapee, less than 30 minutes. If you like the adventure of snowmobiling, mountain biking, dirt biking or ATV riding, bring your vehicles because we have 2 parks located near us; Clough State Park in Weare, NH, and the Hopkinton-Everett Recreation park down the street. Love golf? Duston Country Club golf club is a ten minute drive.
Our town may be rural but the capital of New Hampshire, is just 15 minutes away where you have access to shopping, restaurants and cultural events. The White Mountains, Boston and seacoast are also within 1- 1 1/2 hours by car or bus. As you can see there is no shortage of activities in the area, however if you would just like to sit and watch the garden grow, please feel free to enjoy the solitude, or we would always welcome help with gardening and picking vegetables if you are so inclined.
In the evening, relax by the fire pit and enjoy the sound of the peepers and crackling fire, or indulge in the warmth of the outdoor hot tub*.
Come and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and traffic and enjoy the country life for a few days or a week. You will feel refreshed and renewed and won't be disappointed ...like us, you'll probably never want to leave!
We usually have two bedrooms available, one with a full size bed, the other with a full and twin bed, (see our other listing under Farmhouse #1). Our bathroom is shared and is downstairs, and your bedroom is upstairs. You have full use of the kitchen, dining room, 3 season room, living room, porch, hot tub (except in July and August), grill and outdoor eating area. If you have a larger crowd, we also have plenty of space available for campers!

My Husband and I run a small organic garden and sell our vegetables at a stand outside our house and at local farmers markets. We are also the Owner and Chief Bean Counter of Breakwind Farm's FARTOOTEMPTING Organic Baked Beans which we sell at markets and events throughout the region.
We purchased our 6 acre 1790 farmhouse 3 years ago and have been slowly renovating the house and working on the gardens. We added solar electric and hot water this summer in an ongoing effort to become self sustaining in the next few years. We both love to travel, especially if we can ski and snowboard, but most of our free time is spent working in the gardens and renovating. Some of the bedrooms upstairs need updating. They are all clean and cozy, but the wallpaper is peeling in spots and it does show its age, so it is rustic but quite quaint.
During the summer months we use one of our 3 spare bedroom to host helpers from all over the world through sites like Workaway, Helpx and WWOOF. Our helpers lend a hand with our gardens, farm stand and markets in exchange for room and board. We very much enjoy conversing with them and learning about others cultures and lifestyles.
We look forward to welcoming our Airbnb guests and sharing all that Breakwind Farm has to offer!
*small disclaimer: In the summer we vendor at farmers markets on the weekends. In the morning we may be getting our vehicles loaded with market supplies. After the markets we use the kitchen (approx 2 hour) to clean up, and we then store the supplies in the dining room for the following day. If you need to use either the kitchen or dining room during those times, just let us know. We will happily work around your schedule!
