Great location
91% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Set on the banks of the Ashuelot River this New England charmer has covered bridge views and 300’ of river front. Put a kayak in, fish from the property or soak in a clawfoot tub. A rail/trail offering cc skiing, mountain biking, running & hiking and connects to the largest state park in NH begins at the front door. The house is freshly painted inside and out and thoroughly cleaned between stays. Guests must review and agree to Covid 19 guidelines detailed in "The space" prior to booking.

The space
This renovated 1780's farmhouse exudes charm. Included are new luxurious sheets, comforters and towels. The kitchen has plenty of cookware. There are three bedrooms, one queen, one full, and one with two twin beds. The house has beautifully refinished wood floors. The walls are original - refinished horsehair plaster. In keeping with a house of this age nothing is perfectly square. The steps to the 2nd floor bedrooms are steeper than most. Children love them. The house is cozy in both summer and winter with zoned heating and ample air conditioning. The internet speed is 1 gig wired with an average wireless speed of 200 mbps evenly distributed throughout the house. As I wrote this description a bald eagle flew low over the covered bridge and landed close by on a tree. Great Blue Heron's, Kingfishers, Mergansers with annual broods, Wood Ducks, and many other birds are commonly seen.

Please Note: This is an old house! Nothing is square! The house and landscaping is not designed for people with physical disabilities. I wish I could make it so.

The house is conveniently located between Brattleboro, Vermont, Keene, New Hampshire, and Greenfield, Massachusetts. Northfield Mount Hermon is less than 12 miles away. We want our guests to have a great time and feel as or more comfortable than they do at home. A sanitizing dishwasher and a fancy five burner convection oven/range are new upgrades

Where you’ll be

Ashuelot, New Hampshire, United States

Ashuelot is a sleepy little town. The house is across the street from the Ashuelot Public Library and is between the Ashuelot Post Office and the Ashuelot Covered Bridge. There are wonderful restaurants and co-ops close by in Keene, NH and Brattleboro Vermont. A full binder of menu's and area attractions is in the house. We suggest guests stock up on groceries prior to arrival.
