Charming apartment on upper level of a renovated historic Zero net Energy building – all heat, hot water and electricity are solar generated! Access to Lake Mascoma, Rail trail, Dartmouth College, Dartmouth Medical Center, hiking, biking and more.

The Space

The house is located on Main Street in the village of Enfield, a short drive to Hanover/Dartmouth College, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, shopping, theaters, art galleries, and a variety of excellent restaurants.

The apartment includes two large floors with open kitchen/dining/living area, 2 bedrooms with queen beds and one twin bed in the upstairs extra room.

Guest Access

The kitchen is fully equipped, with a state of the art induction cook-top, convection oven, microwave, and dishwasher. You have access to the 42" 3D flat screen TV, wi-fi, washer/dryer, and private deck overlooking the Mascoma River.

The property includes a small island on the Mascoma River; the river opens to Lake Mascoma, offering boating, swimming, and fishing in the summer and Nordic skiing and skating in the winter. Launch your kayak or canoe directly from the property!

Just across the street is the Northern Rail Trail, with many miles of hiking, biking, running and skiing. Alpine skiing and the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont are easy day trips.

Interaction with Guests

Kim can often be found in the store on the first floor. Hours and information about both Energy Emporium and the 78 Main St renovation can be found on our website.

  • We greatly enjoyed our weekend at Kim Quirk's Zero Energy House.
    The place is beautifully designed and extremely comfortable -- with a sweeping kitchen/dining/lounging living room, three well-appointed bed rooms and a bathroom on each floor. Everything feels new and carefully thought out (more like a luxury hotel than a b&b). You'll love all the little touches: the induction stove-top, memory-foam mattress pads, 3-D video player, back deck with grill, deep window sills (a feature of the house's super insulation) and the sound of the birds and the river in the morning.
    The small town of Enfield is a quiet spot on Lake Macoma. We found great places to walk nearby -- a path to the river (behind the house) and the rail trail across the way, or down Main Street to read all the signs about Enfield town history.
    Kim was welcoming and helpful. She, very kindly, showed us through her store (The Energy Emporium) on the first floor. There were articles and information about the house and the solar powered heat and electricity. Very inspiring!

About
I own the Energy Emporium, a renewable energy resource center and showroom, on the first floor of my house. We design, install and maintain solar electric, solar hot water, solar/wood and geothermal systems. My goal: help people become independent of fossil fuels. I take advantage of all seasons of New England through outdoor activities including cycling, hiking, kayaking, skiing, riding, running, and skating.
