About this listing

Enjoy conservation forest at the base of Little Monadnock Mountain in historic Fitzwilliam at a private residence built in 1810 in our private guest room with private bath. Come back in time with us!

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!

Loved our stay with Katie and her family. We felt like welcomed guests with a perfect balance of care and privacy. Katie's home is perfect for guests and she is a lovely, friendly, and exceptional host. Breakfast was wonderful, too. The room was private, quiet, and comfortable and we parked right in the driveway beside the house. Great location for touring around the area or just relaxing in the country. Many thanks to Katie for welcoming us over Thanksgiving!

Katie communicated promptly and clearly with me each step of the way. Though I didn't meet her, I did meet her husband who was very nice. He made us a very nice breakfast of omelettes, bacon and toast. He set a nice table too! It was all very inviting. The rooms were clean and welcoming. I'd definitely try to stay here again when I'm in the area.

This was only our 2nd experience, and it was more than we could ask for. This is exactly as described and some. The room was so cozy, the town pleasant and our hosts wonderful. We were lost trying to find the house but Katie answered us right away. Unfortunately we did not get to meet her, but her husband Mike made us breakfast in morning and we had nice conversation before leaving. I wish we would have stayed another night. Thank you Katie and if we are ever in the area again we are definitely staying again!

This is a 200+ year old house in historic/scenic/quiet Fitzwilliam. Katie was most accommodating to our unique schedule and changing requirements. Breakfast was great, and it's a short walk to the Fitzwilliam Inn for a nice dinner. If you're in the area, a great place to stay.

We stayed two nights, but booked them separately, so my review is on the other listing.

Fitzwilliam is a lovely, historic New Hampshire village, and Katie's home fits right in. It's a spectacular antique and we felt privileged to stay in it. Our bed was comfortable and the home was pretty clean. The breakfast each morning was delicious and abundant as mentioned by other reviewers. We did feel that our visit came at a very awkward time for our hosts, and that we were not particularly welcome.

Response from Katie:
I'm very sorry to hear that you felt unwelcomed! We enjoyed having you here but since you were away from the home visiting others we didn't see you very much. We try not to pry or get too intrusive and we apologize if that wasn't what you wanted. We'd love for you to come back... next time let us know you'd like some company and we'd happy to sit down and play a game of cards or chat over coffee with you!

Katie User Profile

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.
