Our newly restored 1882 farmhouse is the ultimate rural retreat, backing on a 10,000-acre state forest with more than 200 miles of hiking and snowmobile trails. Quiet, cozy-yet-sophisticated design, the perfect writer's retreat or family getaway.
We're writers who bought and restored this property 10 years ago in our quest for a quiet weekend retreat. This is the ultimate retreat, with sightings of red fox, black bears and deer, and hummingbirds feeding in the extensive rose and herb gardens. The modern kitchen overlooks the state preserve and is equipped with cutlery and service for 8, stainless steel appliances, cookware, and 15-feet of fabulous local bluestone countertops. We have central heat and a cozy wood stove - with cords of seasoned firewood stacked outside for you to use. There are three airy bedrooms with queen beds in each, and one small child's bedroom with a single bed. Sheets and towels are included. Two large bathrooms with spacious showers, a large deck with a new propane grill, picnic table and chairs, and in warm weather, a fabulous sleeping porch with two couches/twin beds. Our guests love to sleep out here and watch the fireflies!
