  • I had a very nice stay at D Acres, which is a fully operational permaculture farm in beautiful New Hampshire. The staff is obviously very busy running the farm, but nevertheless takes time to interact with guests and answer their questions, which definitely adds to the experience of staying at the farm. Unfortunately I only stayed for one night, but other guests who stayed for a longer period had several opportunities to witness the farm operation and get to know the processes and principles of permaculture better.
    I took the half-board option, with home-cooked dinner and breakfast, and I didn't regret it for a second: the food was excellent, using only fresh ingredients grown on the premises.
    I stayed in the library loft, a beautiful room filled to the brim with many books on sustainable agriculture, food production and living. Very interesting.
    I hope I'll be able to come back one day for a longer stay!

  • Me and two friends of mine stayed one night in D Acres after a day in the White Mountains. We arrived later in the evening as planned because we got lost, but Bret had left a note and all the instructions to the front door for us. As a place, D Acres is a charming farm taking recycling and ecological aspects seriosly. There was a bit of confusion with the charging, because after paying through Airbnb our rent, we were asked to pay 10 more dollars for a bigger room through chatting. These details should be mentioned on the airbnb website because now it came as a total surprise.
    The countryhouse was large and clean and we were provided all the towels and linens we needed. Instructions were printed clearly to the rooms. Everybody we met were very friendly and easygoing in the house. The guy in the phone though before we arrived was (...absolutely...) rude.

    I would definitely recommend D Acres to stay when visiting White Mountains because of its location and the athmosphere it had. We didn't have the chance to taste their dinners/breakfast but I'm sure they are delicious! And the cat resting by the door was the best :)

  • Lori and I had a very nice visit. Josh and Regina were excellent hosts. Our sleeping area in the library was cozy and clean (and we enjoyed the company of a very friendly cat), there was lots of space to move around in the farmhouse, the kitchen is fully equipped, the bathrooms are clean (composting toilets and excellent showers).

    Although we brought our own food to cook, we were offered the option of joining other guests for an excellent breakfast and dinner that Regina cooked up. (There were about 20 overnighting students and faculty from a nearby college studying permaculture.).

    We were visiting that area in New Hampshire for x/c skiing and snowshoeing, as were some other guests at the farm, and we all found good trails within a reasonable distance. There is also a network of 10 miles of trails on the grounds of the farm (or adjoining?), for those who want to stay "local."

    We'd definitely come back.

  • Unbelievable place! D'Acres is a beautiful, expansive property - the farm and land are beautiful and the main farmhouse is very large and an excellent place to stay. Cannot recommend enough! I did not meet Josh but met Regina, the other farm manager - she was very friendly, accommodating and welcoming. The main farmhouse has a huge kitchen and living area, and separate upstairs area for guests with 2 bedrooms, living area, arts space, yoga room, library and bathroom. Great tea provided as well.

  • This place is amazing. If you are interested in sustainable living and looking for a place where you can take a time out from busy urban life, this is definitely the place for you to recharge! The guys at the farm are friendly and helpful. I had some of my best meals there, everything is fresh (mostly from the farm), nutritious, healthy and so delicious! I loved it! The next time I'm in the States, I will try to go there again!

  • We had a very nice stay in the farm (in the green room). GREAT FOOD, lovely company (human and animal), and a good location to go hiking in the area.

  • we enjoyed our stay at Josh's farm. It is an amazing place, especially if you are environment aware. We had dinner with his parents, who live in the next house, and they were so nice. His mother took care of explaining to us the discussions and whar was going on so we did not feel lost. It was very sweet from her. A great time there.

  • We stayed at two nights at the fsrm. The first night we stayed in the library. The four of us comfortably read books, explored the farm, went out on to the second story porch and stargazed. The library room was delightfully eclectic. The second night we stayed in dorm. That room had two beds on the lower level and one bed in the loft. In both rooms, we enjoyed opening the windows and listening to the night. If I had to do it again, I would have stayed more nights. That way we could have done more and seen more. So while the residence/farm/house was great for lodging, I think the allure for the listing is held in the adventures that are to be discovered and shown. I hope to visit again, and highly recommend the D Acre farm for a great place to stay.

  • We stayed at D Acres for one night in the green room. The setting is beautiful, nice views from the room, hosts were nice and welcoming. They cooked us a delicious vegan breakfast of garden kale, potatoes, herbal tea and vegan muffins. While our stay was short, we both really enjoyed it and would return. One thing: Double check the directions before you go. We arrived late at night and got lost trying to find the place. Otherwise, great stay, thanks.
