SO, a few years ago this great little cottage was a garage we never used. Now it has beautiful red oak floors, 2 full baths, open concept downstairs with couch and 2 very comfy recliners, smart TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. Full kitchen with everything you should need to make your favorite meal and enjoy it. Coffee maker. LG washer and dryer in laundry room. Upstairs has master bedroom with queen sized memory foam mattress, down comforter, allergy free pillows, 100% cotton sheets and towels, full bath, walk in closet and office area with desk, chair and reading chair. Enjoy the sweet sound of the little stream that runs right under your bedroom window.
The spring and summer months are vibrant with forests & fields, farms & gardens. Great for hiking, walking, napping, painting or just sitting in a warm spot and reading. There is lots of golf, zip lines, hiking/walking for all levels and all with fantastic views, mountain biking, swimming in the river, canoeing, kayaking, horse back riding, nature walks, art classes, berry picking, farm stands, guest speakers, theater, concerts, and more. Take the coach up Mount Washington and get an education in history, vegetation and science. Rock climbing guides are also available to some of the best spots in the Northeast. Take a 35 minute drive to the Mount Washington Hotel, architectural history, lunch outside in scenic splendor and golf. Or take a day trip to Portland, Maine just an hour and half away to a coastal city where activities, restaurants and culture abound. If you're not from New England it's a premier opportunity to see the special vitality and beauty of this part of the country.

With all this to ponder and consider the best thing can also just sit inside or out and just take a snooze, read, listen to music and do nothing if you choose. For so many of us just a chance to be still, warm, comfortable, and relaxed is activity enough. We are happy to help you find your way if you need assistance and to be invisible if not. It is wonderful for us to be able to share the privilege we have to live in this pastoral place. We look forward to your preparing for your visit.
