Description

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.

A futon can be placed on the floor of this room to accommodate an extra guest ($15 surcharge.)

Interaction with Guests

Deana, Bruce or Isabel will often join guests at breakfast and enjoy sharing stories with those who are so inclined but are always respectful of your privacy.

The Neighborhood

Wilton is a friendly, old-fashioned rural New England community. It has an active yoga studio, great library and art supply store and a handful of lovely shops. Home to the famous Wilton Town Hall Theater, (the popcorn has real butter) there is always a wonderful film playing.

Getting Around

Public transportation is not an option in our rustic area. Folks love to bring their bikes, kayaks and paddle boards. There are numerous trails and places to enjoy nature. The roads and driveways are well plowed in winter!

Other Things to Note

Deana has maintained a Zen Shiatsu massage practice for over 25 years. Appointments can be arranged either at home or in her office in Peterborough.

Wilton, New Hampshire, United States · Member since February 2013

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.
