Property description

'Beautiful rustic home (4 bedrooms) nestled in the woods with a private brook and miles of hiking trails right out the back door, loved by all who have stayed here. Peace and quiet. The house is open from June 15 through Columbus Day weekend. We accept long weekend rentals after Labor Day.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

Why the Owner Chose Jaffrey:
This house was built by my Grandfather in 1907. It was briefly owned by family friends, and we bought it back in 2000. My Grandfather used boards and beams from a falling down barn, and five different kinds of woods on the property for the floors. We spent our summers here growing up, with a wood, and a kerosene stove, an ice box, and our milk was stored in the spring in front of the house. It's still there.
