About Brenda

Owners resides in Farifield County CT. We are a family of 5 that enjoys year round outdoor sports and nature. We love to ski, hike, bike and host our friends at the farmhouse!

Brenda purchased this house in 1980

Why Brenda chose Bethlehem

My parents fell in love with the White mountains on their first prip to the area back in the 1970's and bought this house. The Magnificence of the White mountains including Mt. Washington and the spectacular Franconia and Crawford notches are captivating. The healthy environment with its unique mountain air currents make it heaven in the summer and terrific for anyone with allergies.. The terrific snow accumulations and proximity to Major ski resorts make it ideal for our alpine and cross county loving ski family.

What makes this house unique

The house affords a private peaceful setting to relax and enjoy the outdoors, with the convenience of super easy access to town.

The layout of the house accommodates a large group, but provides privacy and never feels crowded!

The location is perfect, an easy drive to anything and everything you may want to do or see in the Great White mountains.

Wonderful Getaway for a Group

  • 5 of 5

Spacious for your larger groups. We had ten girls for the weekend!! Fantastic kitchen and place for games or chilling out. Great location and amazing Cross Country skiing at Mt Washington and Great Glen Trails. Alpine skiing at Bretton Woods and Wildcat was great. Still amazing snow for Spring Skiing. Our host is amazing !!

Superb and very roomy!

  • 4 of 5

This house was more than we expected. Oversized bedrooms and a kitchen table big enough so the eight of us could eat together without being cramped. There were so many bathrooms that nobody really ever tripped over anyone!

Perfect New Hampshire House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a group of friends for a ski weekend! The house is so large and unique with charm. The best part is the big kitchen table for everyone to eat and play games around. The kitchen was stocked with all appliances and kitchen essentials needed for the weekend. The owner was extremely responsive and I would love to stay there again. We skied Brettonwoods and also went to a brewery in the nearby town of Littleton. Loved this house!

Owner's Response: Danielle, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our NH home. The well stocked kitchen and the large farmhouse table seem to always be a big hit! Bretton Woods is a wonderful mountain for all levels and so close to the house. We would love to have you back again! FYI it is heavenly up there in the summer too and there are SOOOO many things to do. Brenda

Homey and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at the farmhouse! It was clean and homey. Endless board games to keep entertained for a relaxing retreat. Just a quick drive to Bretton Woods, Littleton NH and my favorite small town cafe, maya papaya. Will definitely return for years to come!

Owner's Response: Dear Emily, Thanks for your enthusiasm! We do keep the house stocked with games for all ages. In winter the kitchen is perfect for gathering and in the summer the patio picnic table hosts lots of games as well as marshmallow roasting in the outdoor fireplace. We are so lucky to have several terrific eating places within a mile from the house, just down Rt 302 ( Main st). Maia Papaya, as you mention is awesome. The coffee and breakfast are outstanding as are their delicious sandwiches and salads. Just down the road are Rosa Flamingo's and The Cold Mountain cafe. All serving great fare in warm atmospheres. Alpine skiing at Bretton Woods is indeed a short drive, as is Cannon Mountain. For XC enthusiasts and Snow Shoeing, the Nordic Center at the Mountain Washington is fabulous. So glad we will see you again in the future. Brenda
