To accommodate guests looking to social distance, the house has been separated into two living areas. Guests enter the front door to their private guest suite on the 2nd floor. We enter the back door and our living space is on the first floor.

The space
You will be staying in one of the oldest homes in Keene. The Aaron Seaman House was built in 1804 and has retains much of its antique Colonial Charm.

Your private space on the 2nd floor includes two bedrooms (each with a queen bed), one bathroom and a beverage / snack center in the hallway between the bedrooms.

The 1st bedroom has a firmer mattress and includes an adjoining sitting room. There is a door in between the rooms, so if one person needs privacy or stay up to watch TV, the door can be closed in between the sitting room / bedroom.

The 2nd bedroom has a softer mattress and is approximately the same size as the 1st bedroom, but with more of an open concept. It includes a sitting area with desk and chair for a workspace.

The beverage center is in the hallway outside your rooms. Help yourself to the complimentary filtered water, coffee and tea. There is a mini-fridge, microwave, ice maker, tea kettle and k-cup coffee maker. Filtered water is available in the fridge as well as some water bottles.

Your bathroom has shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided in the 42" x 32" stand-up shower. Please note the decorative shower door has an opening of 16" wide.

The Aaron Seaman House is over 200 years old and retains many of its antique beauty such as original wood beams, wide wooden board floors and stained glass over the entryway. Being over 200 years old, it also has the typical quirks of a house this age. The walls are original horse hair plaster and the floors have settled throughout the years so some areas may be a little uneven and the stairs may squeak as you go up and down.

Back in the day, homes were made for much shorter people, so for our taller guests, keep that in mind as you enter the rooms!

We welcome travelers from all walks of life and consider hosting a privilege.

Where you’ll be

Keene, New Hampshire, United States

Keene is a quaint New England town with an "up and coming" foodie and art scene. You will be two blocks from downtown Keene / Head of the Square with easy walk to Keene's many local shops, cafes, restaurants as well as Keene State College.

Enjoy the free walking tour of the Wall Dog Historical Murals scattered around the downtown. There are also walking bicycle trails nearby too.

We are an easy drive to many lakes, hiking and ski areas, including the famous Mt. Monadnock. Spofford Lake, Surry Dam, Island Pond and Warren Lake are some local favorite swimming and kayaking spots.

15 minutes North is beautiful Walpole, NH with Burdick's Chocolate Shop and European Restaurant, as well as the stunning Walpole Mountain View Winery.

A 20 – 25 minute drive West will take you to Brattleboro VT, a funky, fun classic VT spot. The Marina Restaurant and Whetstone Brewery's rooftop Beer Garden both overlook the Connecticut River.

Many ski areas are in easy driving distance: Granite Gorge, Crotched Mountain, Mt. Sunapee, Mt. Snow, Pat’s Peak and more!

We have lived in the Aaron Seaman House for over 20 years and raised four kids in it. With the kids flown out of the nest, we anticipated having to sell the house and downsize going into retirement. An antique house like this is pretty expensive to maintain! Airbnb has changed that for us!! Hosting brings us joy and all funds received are reinvested back into the property. Abe has replaced all the old windows in the bedrooms, repaired, painted the horsehair plaster walls and updated some of the electrical. We have an on-demand hot water heater installed so no one runs out of hot water with back to back showers! We love the Keene area, talking about it and sharing it with guests. When we aren’t “at work” or working on the house, you’ll find us spending time with family / friends, riding motorcycles or maybe volunteering at an off-road car rally race. Abe currently works part-time at the Keene airport, which fits perfectly with his love of aviation. In the Coast Guard, he was part of the helicopter flight crew. Abe is also pretty handy. He is a master carpenter and can pretty much fix anything. A couple of the restaurants in the downtown show off his craft and he custom made the beverage center and the bed frame in bedroom #2. Abe is also a motorcycle and car enthusiast. He enjoys riding his Triumph motorcycles and doing auto cross in his Mustang. Bonnie works out of the house as a Selling Partner for Amazon. Before that she was a personal secretary in the Boston area for over 30 years. She loves “geeking” out on all the details for the Airbnb. Her long-time dream was to run a bed and breakfast, but since she, admittedly, can’t cook, having an Airbnb is a perfect fit. We consider hosting an honor and a privilege. We look forward to every guest!
