The house is 1 mile from Sculptured Rocks Geologic Area, 2 miles from Newfound Lake (the north shore), 5 miles from Wellington State Park (public beach and boat ramp) and 10 miles from Tenney Mountain Ski Area (may be closed, call first). It's a 30 minute drive to Plymouth, 45 minutes to Meredith/Lakes Region, 1 hour to Hanover/Lebanon and 1 hour to Littleton. Major snowmobile routes are accessible from the rear of the property.

Public transportation is not available in this rural area. Snow tires and AWD/4WD are recommended November to April as the home is located on a private dirt road on a fairly steep hill. State and town maintained roads are typically cleared within hours of significant snowfall (above 2-3 inches). The private road usually take longer and is not generally cleared for lesser amounts of snow (below 3-4 inches).
Other things to note
Links to detailed directions, area weather forecast and current weather conditions will be provided once booking is confirmed.
I typically have only weekend availability due to work travel. After staying for a night/weekend, if you are interested in a longer stay, that can be arranged off-Airbnb with a standard lease agreement.
I'm pretty laid back and don't have a long list of rules. All I ask is that guests clean up after themselves in the kitchen and common areas. No smoking inside the house.
I'm a laid back and easy going guy who enjoys time outdoors, cooking, live music/performances, public radio and bourbon. I love sharing my quiet corner of New Hampshire with Airbnb guests.
During the week I am a professional in the financial services industry. Limited French language proficiency.
