This home is a breathtakingly beautiful Queen Anne Victorian built in 1890. It is in walking distance to downtown Concord's restaurants, bars, museums and theaters. The House has convenient free street parking and during snow conditions, off street parking is available.
The 5,000 square foot home has hosted Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Bob Dole and Al Gore. It is detailed with stained glass windows, oak floors, beautiful fireplaces, chandeliers, and it is steeped in bi-partisan political history. From the front porch you can see the Federal Court House and the golden dome of the State House.
The private bedroom is located on the first floor. It is a large elegant room that in its previous life was the majestic formal living room separated with oak pocket doors. It has a double bed, desk, night stands, large closet, comfortable chairs, a jotul gas stove set into the magnificent fireplace and a small refrigerator fully equipped with breakfast provisions. The room has a TV with a full premium cable package and the entire house is wi-fi connected.
The first floor boasts a private elegant modern bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and shower a few steps from the bedroom...kitchen privileges may be available. In the late spring and summer, the gardens in the back and the wrap around porch are fabulous for wine and cheese or breakfast coffee.
If you are traveling with a third person, a first floor room, the library-study, is equipped with a murphy bed (my daughters claim it is the most comfortable sleeping bed in the house), may be available. I can arrange for the third person to use the study at a cost of $53/night. The room has a small dresser, desk, comfortable chair, piano and hat rack.
The room price includes the 3% airbnb host fee and 9% NH rooms and meals tax.
Guests will have access to the large first floor kitchen (use of microwave, hot water maker, toaster oven and coffee maker) the kitchen has a table, 4 chairs and two comfortable easy chairs. The kitchen overlooks the perennial gardens equipped with outdoor furniture and hammocks for use during the warmer weather.
Interaction with Guests
I am generally available to guests during their stay. I reside on the third floor, which is a converted attic that is fully equipped with kitchen and bath.
The house is walkable to most of what is considered the central business district of Concord NH which is also the state capital.
Other Things to Note
weekly rates may be available depending upon the season...
The residence is more than beautiful. Arnie was great with communication, the room and location was fantastic. Extremely clean, great amenities and a wonderful, interesting and stimulating hostess.
I would like to personally thank and recommend the services and BNB that Arnie offers here on airbnb.com. Her hospitality was out of this world. 5 stars all they way. Thank you so much. My parents had the time of their lives and are already thinking about going back for another stay. Thanks again.
This is a rare and wonderful find...from the beautiful aesthetic to the warm hospitality, the fascinating history, and convenient location to anywhere you might need to go in the area. Then there is the huge, lovely bedroom and bath, all the thoughtful amenities--and coffee ready to go when you are! Arnie is an extraordinary host. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Concord and truly look forward to my next visit (I just fear word will get out and she'll always be booked!).
Arnie's house is one of the most beautiful I've ever been in - complete with a gas fireplace in the guest room - and she runs the place like a true bed and breakfast. It's right off Main in downtown Concord, a few blocks from great food and shopping. Parking was easy and so was getting in and out of the house, which was great with my weird schedule. Arnie was wonderful to chat with and she made me feel so at home for a great rate. I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in Concord.
Arnie was the sweetest, most thoughtful host I could have imagined! She thought of everything, from towels and soap to the coffee maker I only had to press "brew" on in my early morning haze. And I would be remiss if I didn't mention her impeccable taste and beautiful home. Thank you! Looking forward to my next stay!
My daughter just loved staying with Arnie. This is our go to place in Concord now. Beautiful home, lovely hostess.
As always, Arnie's place was lovely and welcoming. My daughter and her dad stayed there for a Robotics competition and found everything delightful.
