Built by actress Bette Davis in 1940, Butternut retains the character of that grand era while accommodating family and friends in contemporary style. Peace and privacy prevail on the 22 acre property overlooking the White Mountains. It is located on a quiet birch-lined road three miles from Sugar Hill and Franconia. The house is comfortably furnished with country antiques, accessories, and artworks.
Contact host if you are interested in booking and have questions about the house or area.

The space
The spacious main floor boasts beamed ceilings, random width pine floors, four picture windows including White Mountain views. Large back-to-back fireplaces highlight the living room & kitchen/dining areas. There is also a bar, an enclosed porch, a full bath, and laundry washer/dryer. Satellite TV, DVD, VCR, CD and DSL Internet access are provided.
The kitchen is well equipped and a real delight for those who love to cook, with Jenn-Air cooktop/grill, self-cleaning oven, microwave/convection oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, two sinks, extensive counter space, appliances (mixers, blender, toaster, rotisserie/toaster-oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, waffle iron, etc), china, glassware, stainless flatware, and a full complement of cookware.
On the second floor, two bedrooms are reached by the main stairs; a separate stairway gives private access to the master bedroom suite. The suite features a large bedroom with sitting area, TV, and canopied queen bed, private bath with stall shower, dressing room, and enclosed furnished screened porch. Two other bedrooms (one with two double beds, one with two twin beds) share a second bathroom with whirlpool tub/shower, and an adjoining screened porch. All linens, blankets, and down comforters are provided.
The unique 'silo' spiral stairway leads from the 1st floor bar to a sitting room adjacent to the master suite, and then up to a quiet 3rd floor retreat, all with stunning views. The attached garage accommodates one vehicle and provides convenient indoor access to firewood. Outdoor amenities include lawn furniture and hammock, grass terrace with seating area and large picnic table, stone barbecue fireplace, charcoal grill, and a lovely garden.
