Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Gilmanton

Sleeps 8. 6 Bedrooms. 1.5 Baths.

There are six bedrooms in this 18th century gem, and 1.5 bathrooms, and also a formal, west-facing parlor, The Red Room, that bathes in the setting sun at cocktail hour. Another room, The Lounge, is the perfect slouchy retreat on cold, rainy days. There's a comfortable dining room, a well-supplied kitchen, an antique dollhouse, and an attached, drafty barn with a high roof and plenty of room to gather with friends.

Outside, on the rolling 1.25-acre lawn, there's a picket fence, of course, and also a screened gazebo wrought of ancient maple timbers. A brook runs through the property, offering up a cool, gravel-floored pool for summer wading, and sometimes at dusk a fox visits, trotting along the rough stone wall that lines the perimeter. Just behind the brick patio, there's a section of lawn that's tabletop-flat. You'll enjoy the croquet set we stowed away for you in the barn.

There's splendid swimming nearby at Crystal Lake. The Gilmanton Corners Store is close by, and across from it The Gilmanton Corners Library sits in a one-room white clapboard building.

Outings? We can point you toward Gilmanton's best blueberry picking and toward a rambling meadow for catching fireflies. There are three networks of wooded walking trails in town, and one friend has granted our guests access to the sweetest of family hikes--15 minutes up a privately-owned hill to a granite summit cap with a view. Literary types can explore the old stomping grounds of novelist Grace Metalious, who lived in Gilmanton as she wrote her 1956 smash hit, Peyton Place, which is about, ahem, a small town in New Hampshire. If you're an historian, you'll want to wander beneath the pine trees shading Gilmanton's 37 rambling cemeteries.

There's wifi and central heating at the house, but there is no air conditioning, no dishwasher, and no washer and dryer. The floors tilt and the doors creak. If you're looking for The Ramada Inn, you should probably give us a pass. But if you want to dive deep into the delights of old-time New Hampshire, stay at this beautiful house. You will be so happy you did.
