Situated up on the hill in town. This sweet lady is a charming old beauty built in 1907. We have used her gently for our vacation home for over a decade.
Three of the four bedrooms are available, as well as a common room at the top of the stairs that leads out to a balcony. (The fourth bedroom has some of our personal things in it, but can be used for overflow. We have pulled our blankets out and slept in the common room on summer nights just to enjoy the fresh air.

There is no bus or train service. We rent a car in Boston, or Manchester NH and drive up. Boston is about four hours, Manchester 2.5 Hours. The drive is beautiful and once outside of Boston, the traffic is light.
We hope you have a wonderful stay. Respect the house, treat it gently. Please wash any dirty dishes, and remove all trash. It would be helpful for our housekeeper if you would strip the beds before you leave, and put the sheets and towels downstairs by the washing machine. Thank you!

When traveling my priorities are: Safety, cleanliness, comfortable bed, being oriented to my surroundings ASAP, COFFEE :) We have stayed in every level of accommodation, from five star with a view in major cities to rooms that had a spider as big as the palm of my hand.
