About This Listing
SPRING IS HERE! Ramblers, walkers, hikers and climbers will find this a great time of year in this area
PLEASE NOTE at bottom of this section on details how the pricing works! If two rooms are used, that makes a difference.
LENGTH OF STAY: We ask that weekend bookings cover two nights, although we sometimes make exceptions. Holiday weekends are three nights, and there is a small price different for 4th of July weekend and Labor Day weekend.
Bedroom with very comfortable double bed, and large family-type room which has a fold out (also comfortable but low) couch and your own private wonderful bathroom with hand-built wooden tub, both in in back wing of our home for real privacy. Extensive gardens and a deck for strolling and sitting. Perfect location for hiking, climbing and biking - and a great swimming hole down the road in the Baker River. Rock climbing at the famous Rumney Rocks, the Appalachian Trail goes through the town, Baker and Pemi Rivers close by for terrific kayaking or canoeing - an outdoor lover's paradise! We're an easy distance from Plymouth State University, Squam Lake (AKA "Golden Pond"), Franconia Notch and the Flume, Loon and Waterville mountains. .
Suitable for a single person, a couple, or family with one or two children. Bedroom has comfortable double bed and large "family" sitting room has fold out queen size futon-type bed. Above the family room there is a loft suitable for an older child or young adults with a king size air mattress. Two couples who are friends and would happily share a bathroom could also use the two rooms. There is a loft above the kitchen with two comfortable twin mattresses (and lots of toys) so a larger family with several members who didn't mind sharing the bathroom and climbing a loft ladder can also be accommodated.
House is charming and quiet on 7 acres. We are at the edge of a small town right next to the White Mountain National Forest. Nice art, good books, games and children's toys.
No TV or cell phone service but wireless high speed internet.
Breakfast is do-it-yourself - I'll put out cereals, homemade bread and jam, fruit and yogurt and so on. I can accommodate lactose and gluten free needs if you let me know. Modest restaurants in the two towns on either side of us. Plymouth with its University is 15 miles away and the town has many dining and browsing and shopping (website hidden) well as cultural events (In the summer the NH Music Festival has concerts 2 or 3 times a week)
A NOTE ABOUT PRICING:
$64 for one person using only the bedroom, $74 for two people using only the bedroom.
$28 additional if one person uses second room and $44 if two people use second room.
In other words:
1 person in 1 room = $64;
2 people in 1 room = $74;
1 person in each room = $ 92;
3 people in two rooms = $96.
4 people in two rooms - $118.
If a person is going to use the loft, another $20.
Occasionally we also let groups of more than four come as we have a loft above the kitchen with two twin mattresses. That is $20 per person. Please ask if you have questions about this!
NOTE ABOUT EVEN MORE GUESTS: It is sometimes possible to rent the entire house (once or twice a year) in which case request a pricing sheet). As many as ten people can stay in this case. Ask about pricing for house rental.
PETS: This is sometime alright but with discussion.
The whole back wing of the house is available, and the kitchen may be used for snacks, for making lunches to go, and of course for breakfast.
We aren't equipped to put a lot of guest food in our 'fridge, but with advance notice can give some space.
In good weather, sitting on the deck which you can access from the family room of the guest wing and strolling the garden and fields are options.
If you want to use the local swimming hole in the river, we will make sure you have swimming towels, etc. We have tennis gear for use on our town court next to the swimming hole.
With advance notice I can loan a couple of bikes (I need to make sure the tires are blown up) and a simple bike rack. They aren't fancy but will do for casual biking!
Interaction with Guests
I am here to greet and offer advice about the area.
We have lots of books and maps and information about the many things to do in this area and in the White Mountains.
We are completely secluded yet within a few minute reach of a swimming hole in the Baker River, a simple town tennis court, ponds, famous climbing at Rumney Rocks, and lakes, hiking trails - and not to far from many wonderful attractions - The Flume, Franconia Notch, Loon Mountain, and much more.
No local transport.
Other Things to Note
Lots of good books, games and a guitar are happily shared. We have tennis equipment if you'd like to use the town court five minutes from the house. Toys and books for kids are also available!
No smoking or alcohol please
If there are toddlers, have a discussion with hosts (small pool and high deck and loft stairs)
Plan to eat dinner out unless we agree otherwise. You are welcome of course to make your lunches to eat on deck or take with you. You may bring food in for dinner to eat on back deck or back sitting room.
Some ability to keep guest food in 'fridge
We ask that desk and dresser drawers and so on not be opened, as this is essentially a family space - if closet space for hanging clothes is needed, we will gladly make room.
We had a really pleasant stay at Deborah's house. Since she was out, we had the place to ourselves, she was so kind and even baked us her delicious bread before we left. The key exchange was easy, and she gave us really great direction to her place. Her house is beautiful, and it was perfect for the group of four of us. I will definitely recommend her place to friends who are going to Rumney in the future.
Deborah was so welcoming it was like visiting a family friend. She was very gracious and patient with our one year old son. The location is peaceful and serene and we felt at home.
We absolutely loved every minute of our stay in Wentworth. We were completely surrounded by snow, a winter wonderland all around us. Deborah's home is perfectly tucked away but conveniently located to all major routes. It is the perfect home away from home. Comfortable and cozy with all the necessities. Plenty of books to read, charming decor and DELICIOUS bread! Deborah is extremely accommodating and gave us detailed directions to follow before our trip. She reached out to us a few days prior to see if we had any special breakfast requests and was great with communication. This really is a perfect getaway. We cannot wait to come back!
Deborah is a great host. We spent only two days there and we have been really spoiled by her. It was like being hosted by a friend. The place is really close to the White Mountains so that it is in a perfect location for hiking. Breakfast was delicious and wifi was working fine. In other words if we will have the chance, we will definitively come back.
Deborahs place is neigther fancy nor spotless, but it is so much more; Deborah makes you feel at home in her home - and that made this experience worth so much more! Deborah is were kind and helpfull, she drawed us little maps for our trips. And she welcomed us in her home like it was our own!
Nice beds - sofabed worked fine as well. The place is in the middle of the woods, so be prepared to drive for restaurants and shopping. Wonderfull garden to walk around in. Only one thing to bear in mind if it is important to you; wi-fi is weak in the bedrooms. But works fine if you sit in Deborahs kitchen:-)
