About this listing
Windswept Farm was built by Samuel Moor in 1743. Over the last 270+ years it has been the home and working farm to many families. It was also a Summer Retreat and Tavern. It has been lovingly restored and now offers a quaint and comfy 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. Windswept is now a working farm and equestrian facility with riding arenas and trails. The grounds offer 140 acres of peaceful tranquility. From perennial gardens to fruit and vegetable gardens, there are many areas to explore. The views and sunsets are breathtaking. There are many hayfields and miles of groomed trails to hike, bike, snowshoe and X-C ski.
The rental rate includes the NH 9% rentals tax.
Your private entrance includes the original old quaint entryway with the wide floorboards, a handmade coatrack and shelf with a boot tray.

There are several outdoor chairs placed around the grounds for you to relax and enjoy. All farm critters are friendly and potable, tho' our rooster can be a bit "testy", he won't bother you. Our farm mascot is Elizabeth, sweet cluckable Bantam Hen. She has a HUGE personality!
A grounds and trail map is in the home manual in the apartment.
We tend to give our guests their privacy after checking in. I am always just a knock or a phone call away for any needs regarding your accommodations or to give advice about the farm, restaurants, town of Canterbury, or the central NH areas.
We are out in the country and live at the end of a short dirt road. Our only neighbors are our farm critters. It is typically nice and quiet with the exception of the neighing of horses and the farm tractor's rumble.
