About David Hills

David and Catherine are the 10th generation of the family living on the farm ( Est 1655 by Joseph Smith) ! It is a place of history, beauty and fun.

Fun facts about David and Catherine:

First, we are passionate about people and different cultures. We have traveled far and wide and this is reflected in our home. Catherine has been a midwife for 17 years and brings her passion for Mexican artists into the home. She also is devoted to salsa dancing, motorcycling (1966 BMW), learning Spanish, grew up with deaf parents, and is even pictured on the new Smuttynose Bouncy House beer label!

David's interests include sailing, motorcycling (also), ping pong, anything to do with sustainability, and people. And he gets to be Catherine's husband! Together we have 5 adult children who we love and adore!

(Also, we know the area REALLY well and love to turn people on to special places)

Great family vacation with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

David and Catherine's home is a special spot. Emery Farm has a lot to do. We biked & hiked the property. Walked the trail down to the dock and tried to fish at the River. We helped the farmers pick peaches. The ping pong table, swing and fire pit were added fun. Every morning we had coffee, cider donuts and fresh fruit at the farm stand. Holly and Maria have fresh coffee, fruit, veggies and pies at the stand.

Situated close to Downtown Portsmouth and Jeness Beach , a family can tour all of the shops, historic spots, great restaurants & surf at the beach!

UNH is close for a quick visit. Kittery outlets are also close for shopping.

Stunning property and warm entertainment spaces

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house has so much interesting art, relaxing sitting spaces, and special nooks that our kids loved to seek out for some down time. It offers the ultimate in large entertainment spaces, and sleeps 5-6 comfortably. The indoor ping pong table in the enclosed porch was a big hit, especially when out kids discovered the ball machine. There was also a trampoline and a beautiful, vast barn. The house is not a good match for young children/toddlers, because there are many fragile and small pieces of art throughout that would need to be moved to higher spaces. We were met in person and shown around the property. An extra wonderful bonus is that there is a farmer's market at the base of the property's field with coffee, hot cider, donuts, and so on! Thank you to David and Catherine!

It is a beautiful place to relax and entertain. We loved the kitchen, huge patio, Sonos sound system, art everywhere, ping pong table, big bath tub, amazing fire pit, nearby farm stand and petting barn. A choice you definitely won't regret.

Gorgeous, beautifully appointed home with recent updates.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful four day stay at Emery Farm House with our children. David was easy to communicate with from the start and greeted us upon our arrival to show us around. During our stay we enjoyed recreating on the trampoline, using the ping pong table, playing chess, cooking in the fabulous kitchen, visiting the farm stand daily, and just relaxing. The house is close to many attractions: downtown Portsmouth, Water Country, Ogunquit and Kittery, ME.
