Overview

About the property

Historic Farmhouse near Sunday River and White Mountains. Great Location.

Historic 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom Farmhouse near Sunday River Ski Resort. Fully equipped large eat in kitchen, dining room, 2 large living rooms each with cozy woodstoves, and beautiful large backyard situated on a spring-fed brook.

This charming updated rambling farm house with modern amenities is the perfect setting to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities with friends and family.

Winter: Not only is Sunday River a quick drive away, but there are also great snowshoeing trails and miles of snowmobiling trails from the backyard, as well as local opportunities for cross country skiing and dog sledding. We have cable for football fans.

Summer/Fall: Kayak/canoe the Androscoggin River across the street from the house. The hiking options are unlimited ranging from easy to difficult. There are many swimming holes and waterfalls to cool off in the local mountains. Grafton Notch (~20-30min drive) and the White Mountain NAtional Forest are great starting points for hikes (closest entrance is 3 miles away). Enjoy events at Sunday River, which are running all year long (mud-runs, beer festivals, etc). Enjoy great local food in Bethel, Maine or Gorham, NH each a 15minute drive from the house. Take a gondola ride up Sunday River or Wildcat. Mt Washington is beautiful with options to hike (30 minute drive), drive up the auto road (entrance is 25 minutes from house), or take the cog rail (1 hr away). Enjoy the local amusement parks geared for small children (Storyland and Santas Village are 45 minutes away). Or just enjoy the beautiful 1.5 acre secluded backyard with your own private brook and mini waterfall!

The arrangement of the house allows for privacy if you need to get away from the big group, as well as comfortable areas for everyone to congregate. There are 2 separate living rooms each with ample comfortable seating, wood stove, television, VCR or Wii/DVD player, and cable TV. The fully equipped kitchen offers plenty of space and equipment to prepare meals; and the dining room can seat up to 12 with 6 additional seats in the eat-in kitchen.

Five bedrooms with a mixture of twin and double/queen beds allows this property to be suitable for a variety of groups – adventure groups, multi-family groups, groups of couples, and multigenerational families. This property comfortably sleeps 18, but is cozy enough for smaller parties as well.

Master Suite: king bed and en-suite full bathroom (pack n play available)

Bedroom #2: Queen bed + baby crib

Bedroom #3: Queen bed + 1 twin bed

Bedroom #4: Full bed + 3 twin beds

Fun winter getaway

  • 4 of 5

This old house definitely has lots of charm. We visited during one of the coldest weather advisories and managed to stay warm and cozy. The pellet and wood stove were used to make sure house stayed toasty. The separate living room for kids was awesome to give adults some quiet time. The Wii and the closet of games were a big hit.

We were very happy with the property

  • 4 of 5

One feedback is lack of cable tv- I understand location is remote and the owners have now updated the listing to say no cable- for certain people and fir certain occasions (like me and football playoffs) it would have been nice to have cable

Excellent for a family

  • 4 of 5

We had my entire family together for my parents' 50th anniversary, all 13 of us. This house was wonderful, very comfortable for that many people. The backyard was great, the kids even got to have a dip in the brook in the back and we had a nice fire a couple of nights. My only complaint was that alot of screens had holes that allowed bugs in and keeping windows closed in July just isn't possible. (Mentioned to landlord and he said he would look into it)I would definitely go ,back, lovely area and close to NH.
