Description

The Space

Nestled amid conservation forest at the base of Little Monadnock Mountain in historic Fitzwilliam, our home was built in 1810. We are located at the base of one of the most beautiful trails in New Hampshire. There are activities here for every season: boating, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, sledding, skiing and just relaxing! We are a great place to connect with the beauty and fierce independence of New England's outdoors while remaining a convenient 20 minute drive from Keene.

We are available for your needs year round and gourmet breakfast is always served to our guests. Other meals can be provided for an additional cost. Just let us know before your arrival if you follow a special diet... we can accommodate most anyone.

The guest room has a queen size bed and VHS/TV setup and also has a private 3/4 bath. It is furnished with hot water, tea and honey as well as board/card games, movies to watch and books to read. The main floor has a living room and dining room accessible to our guests. You are more than welcome to use the wet bar and play on the piano or organ in the living room.

Please note: we have chickens and cats.

We provide transportation to guests who are arriving within an hour's drive for an extra fee.

We are located a short drive to the local ski lifts, 3 miles from the Massachusetts border, 18 miles from artsy Brattleboro and 13 miles from the quaint college town of Keene. Antique stores are abundant, live entertainment and delicious meals are just a walk away at the Fitzwilliam Inn.

We take our cue from you! We have worked in hospitality for a long time. We will be completely unseen if you prefer to have a quiet time alone, or we will sit down and play a game of cards with you.

Contact us ahead of time if you are coming in the winter so we can advise you of the road conditions.

If you like picking wild edibles, come during the summer or fall. There are fruit and herbs a-plenty nearby!

Various complimentary toiletries are provided. Fresh towels and sheets are provided for each guest and coffee, hot chocolate and breakfast are provided each morning at no additional charge.

Guest Access

The guest bedroom is on the first floor and has a private attached bath with a shower. This room only sleeps two (though an infant, small child or pet might also fit) and is $90 per night, double occupancy.

Guests are asked to use the front door as the guest room is closest to that door.

Interaction with Guests

We take our cue from you! We have worked in hospitality for a long time. We will be completely unseen if you prefer to have a quiet time alone, or we will sit down and play a game of cards with you.

Our home is a large private residence (4,000 square feet) and the walls are pretty thick, so there will be no shortage of privacy if you seek it!

The Neighborhood

We live within walking distance of all that Fitzwilliam has to offer! The historic Fitzwilliam Inn offers live entertainment, drinks and meals. There are antique stores and a history museum if you are interested. But most of our guests prefer to meet the neighbors on four feet who live in the conservation that surrounds the town.

Getting Around

We can provide transportation around town for an extra fee if you need it, but it is ideal to bring your own vehicle. Contact us ahead of time if you are coming in the winter so we can advise you of the road conditions.

Other Things to Note

If you like picking wild edibles, come during the summer or fall. We have fruit and herbs a-plenty nearby!

Tea is available in the room and various complimentary toiletries are provided. Fresh towels and sheets are provided for each guest and coffee, hot chocolate and breakfast are available each morning at no additional charge.

3. If you plan to use the trails, please bring your own equipment (such as snowmobiles, snow shoes, skis etc).

4. Outside quiet hours are 9pm to 8am. If you are up after 9 or before 8, please keep your voices down if you are outside so as to not disturb neighbors.

We hope that your time away from home will be filled with rest and peace!

Katie

Katie

Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire, United States · Member since July 2013

We are a family of four with over two years of airbnb hosting experience.

Katie spent some of her youth as a foreign exchange student. For this reason, she is uniquely suited to welcoming those visiting from outside of the United States but still enjoys stays from those from within the US borders. Katie is a midwife and is sometimes away from home, welcoming babies. When she's home, she loves to chat with visitors. She enjoys oil painting, art collecting and writing in her spare time.

Michael is a chef with many years of experience working in hospitality and the food industries in Keene and San Francisco. He now prefers to cook up gourmet, locally sourced meals for our airbnb guests! Michael is a little more reserved and quiet than Katie, but will never hesitate to talk about his true passion: Football!

Two teenagers (our children) also live here. But as typical teenagers do, you probably won't see them. ;)

Additionally, we have kitties. If you are allergic or are bringing a dog, please let us know so we can hide them away in their kitty kingdom. If you like cats, let us know that too! We usually err on the side of excluding them from the guest area, but if you'd like a visit... they're very friendly.
