With 3 queen size bedrooms and 1 double bedroom, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen/dining room, a living room and TV room there is space for 8 comfortably.

If you are planning a wedding or other family event, our terraced garden leads out to a big, flat back yard, perfect for a tent. We have lots of parking space and our basement or the barn are well suited for staging areas.

About Sam Cushing and Louisa Bliss

We are 'locals'. I (Sam) was born and raised in nearby Sugar Hill. Louisa has been coming to Franconia since she was a kid and moved here in the early 80s.

We are a blended family with 5 kids, all of whom have gotten through college and moved on leaving us in the dust with a big, empty farm house. Bitter sweet...

Louisa is a middle school math & science teacher and I am a woodworker.

Outdoor activities are our passion. Whether it's running up a mountain, riding down the road or 'sloppin' the hogs'.

We are also travelers ourselves having hiked and biked much of France and England so we know what itchy feet can feel like.

Sam Cushing and Louisa Bliss purchased this farmhouse in 1992

Why Sam Cushing and Louisa Bliss chose Bethlehem

Having lived here on our farm for over 20 years raising gardens, lamb, pork & poultry, as well as 5 kids, we know what it takes to keep things active and entertain large groups. Being avid hikers, cyclers and skiers ourselves, we can be of service in guiding you to whatever your passion may be.

In 1991 we started looking for a place where we could raise our kids and have a small farm. The Cherry Valley Farm turned up and immediately we knew it was the place for us. A quiet street, a spacious house, BIG barn and enough property for raising animals and kids with plenty of privacy.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Literally, right from our dooryard, you can put on your hiking shoes, snow shoes, cross country skis or clip into the pedals of your bike and go for miles and miles. Our farm is surrounded by fields, forests and trails that cater to four season fun.

And if you're into cycling, we can guide you to any level of some of the best road riding in the world.

If hiking is your thing, we're 15 minutes from trail heads to the Presidential Range and Appalachian Trail as well as a myriad of other options from peaceful and pleasant to painful.

Love to ski? Again, we are minutes from some of the best downhill and Nordic skiing the East has to offer.

Good times at Cherry Valley Farm

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days the end of July and our family had a great time. The views are great! The house and deck were perfect. Beautiful flowers all around. The house had everything you would ever need on a vacation. Couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The owners were great! Would love to go back soon!!

A great family get away !!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family enjoyed staying here this weekend. Plenty of space to hang out, very clean and organized, welcoming and relaxing! We hiked and ran mount washington and relaxed on the deck. Family dinners in the large kitchen and dining room. Movie night was in one family room, chatting in another. All we had to do was supply the food. Highly recommend this home. Easily could do a week's vacation here in any season!
