About this listing

We are happy to share our home with visitors who seek country tranquility and a warm, friendly family atmosphere. The rooms are light and airy with views of our garden. (see also Tree House Room)

The space

We purchased this beautiful antique home in 2012 as a family home. It had previously been run as a B&B and we now feel inclined to share this beautiful home with others. Magnificent gardens surround the house and stone pathways meander throughout the garden. Our music room/library is a cozy place to hang out and our guests are welcome to join us in the living areas.

Deana cooks a nutritious homemade breakfast from the bounty of our local organic and biodynamic farm.

We are a short walk to a stunning waterfall and hiking and skiing trails abound. Our guests enjoy nearby tennis, swimming, berry picking, downhill skiing, theater, galleries and restaurants.

Guests are also welcome to join our family for dinner (previous reservation is appreciated.) We enjoy engaging in lively conversation over good food and glass of wine and frequently host friends and family. Our guests are always welcome to join.

There is wifi throughout the house , but we don't own a television.

There is a bathroom with a tub (no shower) directly across the hall from this room. Two showers on the same floor are available to guests.

This bedroom has a comfortable queen sized mattress. A futon can be placed on the floor of this room to accommodate an extra guest ($15 surcharge.)

Deana is such a gracious host, and her historical home should be the envy of any 'This Old House' enthusiast. The garden is a labor of love, and deserves to be appreciated by any guest. Our beds were soft and warm, and our delicious breakfast was infused with all things local and sustainable. We look forward to staying here again.

This place is magical. The family is very warm and they make you feel right at home. It is located in a beautiful area and we enjoyed strolling the gardens in the backyard.

This was my first experience staying in an Airbnb host's home and thought it might feel like I was imposing, but I am delighted to say that I enjoyed the whole experience. Deana immediately made me feel comfortable and welcome into her family's home. Deana was very helpful and graciously accommodating - especially when one day when I didn't feel well. Deana and her family are warm, open, and cheerfully include their guests in conversation over meals. And the food! Deana is such a creative cook, serving healthy, nourishing meals that taste fantastic. In addition to breakfasts I opted to accept Dean's invitation to join the family in a couple of dinners as well. The house and yard are just as warm and inviting as the photos. It was fun to watch the birds at the bird feeders – I learned what cow birds are! I had a lovely time sitting in the yard soaking in the sunshine and the sounds of nature. I loved walking in the woods just down the road, awesome waterfall! I'm grateful to Deana and her family for a wonderful few days and am looking forward to my next stay with them very soon.

Deana and her family were very open and accommodating, and the home was exactly what were hoping for. The food was wonderful, and I'm glad we did the dinner. They were especially nice about the fact that we were traveling with a toddler! We would not hesitate to stay with them again in the future.

Deana User ProfileDeana is a superhost.

We moved to Wilton, NH from Napa, CA four years ago and bought an antique house that used to be a b&b. My husband Bruce is a teacher at Pine Hill Waldorf School and this wonderful school is what drew us across the country with our two teenaged daughters. My work centers around healing, specializing in end of life transitions with a practice in both Shiatsu Massage and Midwifery to the Dying. This can mean, sometimes unexpected changes in my availability as a full time hostess (if I am called to a bedside, you may have to cook your own breakfast, but wonderful ingredients will be laid out for you.). We have two daughters 20 and 17. We love being outdoors, cooking, gardening and music and are actively involved in our local community. Both Bruce and I have traveled extensively and our children seem to be following in our footsteps. Our eldest daughter is abroad this year studying in Nepal, India and Bhutan. Our younger daughter, in her junior year of high school, is already planning a gap year doing service abroad. At the moment she is considering Brazil and India as her choice destinations. Our home is a vital family environment with lots of enriching activity and we love to share it with others.
