Serenely Beautiful White Mountain Retreat

Bedrooms 6
Separate WC's1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This is a beautiful, well maintained farm house at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by 150 acres of undeveloped field and forest. A perfect retreat for writers, artists, yoga enthusiasts, or a family reunion.

Situated between the town centers of Bethlehem and Littleton, there are restaurants, book and antique shops, a Sunday flea market, Maya Papaya Coffee shop, as well as Chutter's Candy Store that boasts one of the longest candy counters in the US. Movie theatres in both towns provide nightly entertainment.

If getting back to nature is your goal, this is the place. The night sky sets off the stars like you never see near the city. Take a hike through the woods down to the river, swim or float on the playful rapids, and sunbath on lazy summer day on the pebbled banks of the Amanoosac River.

We are in the heart of the White Mountains, not far from skiing and swimming at Echo Lake at the base of Canon Mountain, where you can fish, rent canoes, or take an Canon Mountain Aerial Tramway ride up the slopes. Forest Lake is only a 15 minute drive, as is Moore Dam Reservoir, if you want to bring your boat. Bretton Woods ski area is not far a drive.

The White Mounains' famed Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch State Park, is only a 30 minute drive, where you can walk the 2 mile hike up past the waterfalls and covered bridges.

For fun day trips for the kids, less than 40 minutes will bring you to North Woodstock, NH where there is a water park, miniature golf, and other amusements.

Another great trip takes you to Clark's Trading Post, in Lincoln, NH, where you can take a miniature train ride, and see dancing bears. 40 minutes from Bretton Woods for cross country skiing, or feel free to cut your own trail over our 250 private woodland acres.

The large house with kitchen, dining room, living room, parlor, and several upstairs bedroom, a full bathroom with tub on first floor, shower on second, along with an additional half bath, will give you the space to stretch out, and enjoy a relaxing time away from the hectic daily pace of life. Though the furnishings are a bit of a hodge podge, you will love the light and comfort of this roomy home.

About Asa Brebner

Artist and his partner, took over the farm from their parents, who purchased and restored the smaller farmhouse 30 years ago. The rental property was part of the original farm, repurchased in 2008. Owners live up the road 'a piece.'

Asa Brebner purchased this house in 2008

Why Asa Brebner chose Littleton

We bought the house for our own living, but, have decided to remain in our old house for now, and hold onto the rental house for future living.

What makes this house unique

It is a remarkably serene spot in the White Mountains. Our property sits on one of the largest privately own parcels of land, almost 150 acres. There is a charming old barn on the property that boasts one of the truest peaks to be found in the area. We are at the end of a dirt road, off the beaten path, where the stars take your breath away at night, but we are close to two towns, and both have quite a lot to do to keep you from getting too bored.

Great house for large group

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in January with 3 families (total of 12 persons) for a ski weekend. We loved the house which provided ample space for the adults and kids. While it is not fancy, it was fully equipped, functional and nicely appointed for a casual ski weekend. The location is great for skiing at Bretton Woods or Cannon. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, very responsive and helpful. We hope to come here again soon. Thank you.

Best White Mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Let's just say we have been renting other places for over 30 years and this is the best yet. We are a large group who love to get together in the fall and winter. There was enough space for all of us and then some. It is exactly what we wanted for our annual ski trip; farmhouse feel with all the amenities. There was so much space for everyone, two living areas, eat in kitchen plus dining room on a big ole farmhouse table. Hot showers were a treat, never had that before in an affordable rental. We enjoyed showing the kids what a record player was and they liked the collection, especially "the women singing in French". We made cross country ski trails in the back, little hills were just enough for the kids. We made snow shoe trails to the river and the old railway tracks with the cool old bridge. This house recommended to ski and hiking groups or anyone wanting to get away. As always in Bethlehem you have the classic antique shops and unique stores, a great pizza place and small food store. So many mountains around it is hard to choose from. Close to the interstate to see many attractions. The owners are the nicest people and so accommodating. Can't wait to stay for the fall trip and what the house has to offer then.

Owner's Response: Such a kind review. Thank you. It appears that your families and our's have much the same interests, and appreciation for this wonderful old house. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but the space and the tranquility are hard to top. We will try our best to live up to your kind words in the future. We love it when our guests leave happy. And it's even nicer when they return!

Private mountain retreat in the tranquil White Mountains. Rustic home is accurately shown in photos with spacious bedrooms, bathrooms w/ plenty of hot water, country kitchen plus dining area, washer/dryer, large porch into foyer. Picture postcard setting in quiet Bethlehem, close to shopping, diverse restaurants, skiing and snowmobile trails. This is a great value run by friendly people. Our best place yet in our many trips to the area

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend we had. We felt immediately at home in the farmhouse. We loved it. the house was clean and homey. Not stuffy or pretentious. The music collection is awesome!

The land is beautiful and the only thing we could hear were birds and crickets. Our dogs loved it. No leashes needed! We took the hike through the back of the property. It is so worth it. Its like going through different worlds of nature until you reach the best part (the river and swimming hole). The current had a nice pace to it and was fun to sit in.

We were very happy to stay at the house the whole weekend but we didnt!

All destinations that we traveled to were close enough. The gorge, flume, N. Conway.

We are going to reserve the house again this fall and winter for weekend getaways.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with a large group - my parents, my three brothers and their families. The house was exactly what we needed: nothing overly fancy---which made it relaxing with a lot of little kids running around---but plenty of space for everyone to hang out, enjoy meals, and and sleep comfortably. Being at the end of the street also meant not worrying about cars when the younger kids were running around the front yard. We also enjoyed the great record collection! Asa and Lori were great to work with and made the process of the rental very easy. We would definitely consider going back for future family trips.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We are very happy that your family enjoyed our house. We like to say, "If you are looking for high tech, and bells and whistles, ours is not the place for you." But, if you want a nice, relaxing place, to wind down, and enjoy family and friends in a setting that allows the space and peace to reconnect, please come to our home. Thanks again, Asa and Lori

Family Reunion a Big Success

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights with 14 of our closest family members and had no fights. Each couple had their own bedroom, the kids had an attic with lots of beds and mattresses, and the baby got to sleep by himself. The kitchen had all necessary appliances, all up to date, and there were enough settings for all of us. The living room was big enough for the kids to get away from the rest of us. The overall effect in 1st half 20th century farming, an ancient-history lesson for the grandkids. Surroundings include a big barn, apple trees and no neighbors in sight. Recreation includes a nearby river, an estate turned historical reservation, Cannon Ski area and Franconia Notch State Park, plus gentrified little Bethlehem.

The property feels remote but is only about 10 minutes from Interstate 93.
