I live a very full life!
Valerie and Pablo were amazing hosts and their house is a rustic paradise! When I showed up in Keene, I met Valerie at their Green Energy Options store. My phone was dead and their driveway was snow covered, so she gave me a ride to their house and Pablo took me back to my car the next morning. You can't get that kind of service at the Hilton!
If you are looking for a quiet weekend getaway in the mountains, just passing through, or looking into alternative ways to live, this would be a great destination. Highly recommended.
Valerie has a lovely clean home. I enjoyed my stay here. The bed was very comfortable. Pablo, her husband, is a great guy. Their off-grid setup is rather nice. I look forward to visiting in the spring when the garden is in bloom and I can see the gravity water feed.
Great place to stay, wonderful and interesting hosts. My visit coincided with a major snow storm that was handled with aplomb by the hosts who kept us warm and the driveway plowed.
Staying with Valerie and Pablo was awesome. Their house and property epitomizes the best parts of living in New Hampshire. It was quiet, peaceful, surrounded by nature but simultaneously comfortable and homey. They are both really cool people too, who really are sensitive to their guests and accommodating and all good things really. When we go back to the area, we're definitely going to try and stay again
My wife and I stayed here over New Years. What a treat. Nothing beats a romanic evening in their hot tub. We will certainly be back soon.
My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of spending two nights in this beautiful home. Valerie answered within a few minutes and accepted us on very short terms.
The house and its surroundings are more than an escape from the big city. It is absolutely gorgeous and the ideal place to clear one's mind for a few days. We immediately felt very comfortable and at home.
Valerie and her husband Pablo are amazing people and I feel very fortunate to have gotten to know them. They are both very warm, welcoming and - I believe - really happy people and will help you with anything they can. However they do have a very good sense for privacy and people's needs, so don't hesitate to spend a few nights at their home even if you feel the need to be quiet and have your peace.
Overall it has been an amazing couple of days and the only two things I really regret is that it has been way too short and I am now spoiled for any future stays.
Take care and thank you very much. We look forward to come back soon!
P.S. Make sure not to miss out on Pablo's delicious breakfast.
My husband and I stayed one night during our Thanksgiving trip and we really loved this place. the place was beautiful, cozy and warm.. Valerie and Pablo are really good hosts and great people! When we got there they had some friends in the house and all of them were so nice and kind that we felt so welcome. :) and we also enjoyed hot tub in the chilly weather looking up countless stars in the sky.. oh I will never forget that moment. it was just fantastic.
and in the night we enjoyed some table games with Valerie, Pablo and their delightful friends and i was so happy to meet new amazing people and laugh with them..it was a precious moment.
oh and you don't want to miss breakfast cause eggs are really fresh! I absolutely recommend staying with Valerie, Pablo and Andre! :)
Very generous and kind hearted hosts, and very comfortable, unique, and cozy home in a beautiful setting. Omelets in the morning were amazing! A bit of a drive in to Keene, but an easy one. Would definitely recommend to others.
A very comfortable, quiet and restful sleep for 2. Charmingly funky yet neat accommodations in a rural setting. Good coffee and conversation in the morning w/ Pablo (Valerie happened to be away), who shares our passion for. organic gardening. Will definitely book again.
My 17-year-old son and I had a great stay with Valerie and Pablo. We were visiting colleges in the area to check out programs in sustainable design, and we couldn't have asked for a more appropriate place to stay! Valerie and Pablo were wonderful hosts. Our room was comfortable and cozy and the breakfasts were delicious.
I have known Valerie for over ten years and my life is better for it. She is one of the hardest working, yet caring and thoughtful people you could hope to find-- full of mirth and music. Her home is a charming retreat in a beloved and respected forest.
