The historical Farm House, is affectionately known as Iris Farm. It is located in the quintessential town of Sugar Hill. This house is part of the historic 'Pecketts on Sugar Hill' estate, site of the 'First Ski School in America.' The house is part of the farm that once was a diary farm, complete with diary cows and a milk delivery truck! The large bay window looks out onto views of the entire Presidential Mountain Range, quiet country lanes and pastoral fields are all within the estate. This house has the essence of being warm and cozy. This house has been completely renovated and updated to include a large eat in kitchen with granite countertops and brass light fixtures. Brand new appliances including a washer and dryer in a room off the kitchen. Upstairs bathroom has wonderful heated tile floors!
The house has a very large living room, four bedrooms, two full baths, upscale kitchen and is a tastefully appointed house. The fireplace is tremendous and is wonderful to sit in front of on a cold winter night after a great day of skiing.
The house is located 5 minutes away from Cannon Mountain and Franconia Notch.
Bird watching, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, sledding, hiking, antiquing, museums including the Sugar Hill museum, the Robert Frost homestead and Polly's Pancake Parlor are some of the great things to do in the surrounding areas. It's a wonderful house to relax with family and friends.
Peckett's at Iris Farm is a total winner. If you read no further, just go ahead and book now. The house has been renovated with astoundingly loving care, the location is ideal, and the site is beautiful in a way that very few rentals are, even in the White Mountains area.
The farmhouse in which we stayed was pristine and gorgeous. Its a beautiful old house whose renovations were accomplished with extraordinarily good taste and marks of luxury -- high-end appliances, granite surfaces in the kitchen, beautiful wood floors (thought maybe they were maple). It was roomy and remarkable not only in attention to detail and historical value (keeping the mesh wire on closet doors from the original was one of many nice touches) but also -- the view!
The large window in the kitchen commands a view of not just the bucolic slope down the Sugar Hill property (with cows and sheep) but also the Presidentials, Mt. Washington and the northern Franconia Ridge. Simply divine to have breakfast at the ample dining table there and watch the clouds roll over waves of distant mountains. We stayed there in the heat of summer and the house remained very well ventilated, including two cozy screen porches for late night chats. There's also a grand fireplace for winter stayers.
The location is perfect for anyone who wants to get away -- hiking (my brother and I hiked the Franconia Ridge -- world class views), skiing (Cannon Mountain is within view and minutes away) or weddings and celebrations (Sugar Hill Inn is right down the road and the town is small but adorable). Families will enjoy the proximity to the Flume and Echo Lake; Storyland and North Conway are a drive away. Also for artists and writers (Robert Frost's former house and nature walk is minutes away).
I can't say enough wonderful things about Iris Farm. Our only wish was to have stayed longer. An absolute gem!
We are right down the street from Polly's Pancake Parlor! Tons of hiking opportunities. Biking, walking, hiking, swimming are great for summer and skiing, skating, snowshoeing are great for winter! Take the tram up to the top of Cannon and get a birds eye view of the mountains and landscape!
