About this listing

Soaring beams, the fresh smell of pine, and large screened doors to meadows front and back make this lodging unique. Generous open space below with basketball, swing, kitchenette and two cedar picnic tables. Cozy living and sleeping loft above to accommodate four guests. Private master alcove with large skylight in both bedroom and bathroom. Kitchenette is equipped with two burner electric cooktop, dorm style small fridge/freezer, keurig coffee maker, and microwave.

Our property is on a dirt road and includes 11 acres of woods and meadow. There are hundreds of acres of surrounding conservation lands with trails for walking, biking, and exploring. There is a spectacular waterfall which is a half an hour walk from the house with deep pools for soaking or cooling off. There are also several lakes and ponds within a short drive such as Greenfield State Park and Cunningham Pond. Numerous organic farms and restaurants provide fresh and delicious food for dining in or eating out.
Interaction with Guests
My husband and I live in an antique colonial on the same property (across the meadow from barn). We are friendly and like to chat but we have our own thing going on and tend to keep pretty busy.
The Monadnock region is much appreciated for its gentle beauty and cultural life. Clear fresh lakes and streams for boating or swimming are within a short drive from your door. You will love the remote location and quiet natural environment for hiking, biking, walking, swimming, kayaking, etc. You will also enjoy the small town feel of Wilton and Peterborough with an old movie theater, gourmet chocolate shop, general store, and eclectic pubs, restaurants, and art studios. There is a wealth of cultural activities nearby such as free summer concerts and theater groups throughout the summer.
Our property is a little over an hour from Boston and approximately 4 hours from NYC.
Other Things to Note
