Why Debra Franchi chose Tamworth

Beautiful Country Escape nestled between the White Mountains and Lakes Region of New Hampshire.

Wonalancet is a village in the northwestern corner of the town of Tamworth in Carroll County, New Hampshire.

The name 'Wonalancet' translates to 'Pleasant Breathing' which you can't help but enjoy during your stay.

Many popular hiking trails into the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains have trail heads in the area, particularly in the locale known as Ferncroft, up a short spur road from Wonalancet.

The village itself is named for the Pennacook Indian leader Wonalancet.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is positively New Hampshire at its best! Something incredible to offer each and every season. Peaceful pastoral setting connects to amazing trail network makes this get away a treasure inside and out.

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time at "Locke Falls Farm." The property was amazing, with rolling meadows and pastures, divided by split rail fencing and landscaped stone walls, and plenty of lovely floral gardens. There was a national forest which joined up to the yard, which was full of well maintained hiking trails, which followed pleasant brooks and a river.

The house was well cared for and had everything we needed and more. There was plenty of space, so much in fact that we hope to make a return future trip with some extended family!

The area was very nice, and we enjoyed spending a day at Mount Washington (just an hour drive away). We also visited the "Castle in the Clouds" (1/2 hour away) and the shops in North Conway (1/2 hour away). On the way home, we passed through a very quaint town called "Meredith," which was also a short drive, which sits right on a lake....that will be a destination next time we come!

Very nice rental, and highly recommended. We can only imaging how beautiful it is in the fall!

Debra, the owner, was a delight to work with as well, and was very welcoming. Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy your home!!

Owner's Response: Cheryl and Shawn were wonderful guests and it was a privilege to share my property and the Tamworth Community with them. It is exciting to hear all that they did during their stay and I very much look forward to the opportunity to host their family once again in the near future!

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 out of 5
Words really cannot describe the beauty and serenity we experienced at Locke Hills Farm. We arrived to the property early Friday afternoon and were greeted with a picturesque landscape. The Farm sits right on the edge of the White Mountain National Forrest and the view from the outdoor patio is breath taking. With the warm breeze it was a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and reflect on the day.
The house itself is huge, and it’s easy regardless of the amount of people you travel with to escape the crowd and get some peaceful alone time.
Debra, our host was more than accommodating. She left us a loaf of fresh, locally baked bread as well as a list of brochures with things to do in the area. She also, reached out to us via email in regards to a local Farmer s Market that would open during our stay. It was a great suggestion and a few of us did attend. I was able to buy some Coconut Run Fudge as well as meet and chat with some local New Hampshire farmers. Had we not brought so much food, the fresh produce would have been a great additive to our menu during our stay. The kitchen at the house was well equipped with anything you might need for cooking. The center island was ideal for placing snacks/appetizers and we spent a while congregating in the kitchen while cooking. The grill was also perfect for an afternoon BBQ!
With the property being so expansive we were excited to explore the grounds. In the pasture to the right there is a large boulder it was fun to climb onto the structure. It was a very conducive location to bask in the sun. One of my favorite parts of the farm was the trail head just behind the barn. We hiked for a few miles into woods crossing a number a small man made bridges along the way. The trail eventually leads to a beautiful path that follows the most majestic river completely immersed in the wilderness.
At night we played games and chatted by the fire pit in the back yard.
Over all, the experience at the farm was amazing. I heard not one complaint from any of the guests I travelled with except that they wished they could have stayed longer.
I knew it was a great success when a few of my guests, commented, “I can’t wait until the next time we come here!” With that being said, I highly recommend the property. It was one of the most fun weekends I have had this year! It is an excellent place to have a large group and entertain. In my opinion a perfect place to get married. =)
Thanks again Debra!
