Jefferson house description
Nestled at the base of Bois Mountain in Northern New Hampshire, our shingle style house has a commanding view of a spectacular mountain range. Originally built in the 1800s as part of the mountain resort community as a retreat from formal city living, this grand house is one of the few historic buildings left from that era. With 150 acres, Boismont offers land on which to hike and cross country ski. It is also within 30 minutes of major ski areas (Cannon, Wildcat, Attitash) as well as cross-country areas (Great Glenn Trails in Pinkham Notch, Mt. Washington Hotel). It is an ideal location for weddings, business retreats, and gatherings of family and friends.
The property includes enough bedrooms to fit the extended family or group as well as a large living room with a fireplace, screened-in porch, tennis court, swimming hole, barbecue, ping pong, pool table, and laundry facilities.

ReviewsWrite a review
My fiancée and I were looking for for a place to have our wedding in the White Mountains when we saw this property on VRBO. We knew it would work for us but ended up exceeding all our expectations. The owners were very accommodating and worked with us as we pulled the plans together in the weeks prior to our arrival. Friday night we had a pre-wedding dinner with 22 family members ranging in age from 1 to 83. Saturday we held the wedding ceremony on the grass in front of the apple trees with the Presidential Range as our backdrop. We had an evening reception dinner under a tent on the spacious front lawn. All of our guests commented on the how beautiful the house and the surroundings are. After dinner the younger family members enjoyed the game room while others went inside to sit in the living room in front of the fire where they played a 1920's trivia game found in the bookcase. Both Friday and Saturday night I think we had all but two beds filled and everyone was impressed with the accommodations. The weekend was capped off by a pancake breakfast for our newly combined family prepared in the spacious kitchen by myself and my new husband. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend.

Family reunion weekend
Family reunion weekend
We packed 19 people aged 14-86 into this wonderful, stately home for a family reunion, and to celebrate our parents' 60th wedding anniversary. Everything about this house and the grounds worked well for us. There is more than ample space, and we were able to spread out as needed, yet all fit around the dining room table for evening meals. The house is a comfortable, inviting mix of informality and formality - mostly the former, but with an eclectic collection of early-mid 1900s furniture and fixtures. Many of the bedrooms have their own sink and small wash area! It is definitely a step back in time - the sense of family history and multi-generational love for this home is palpable, and we all relished that. We spent a lot of time outside on the open front porch and screened side porch. The front lawn is large and hosted several lively family games. Most of us hiked the easy 1/2 mile trail (or so) up to the ledges above the house - a worthwhile outing. The pond was wonderful, although only a few us swam. The caretakers next door were very down-to-earth, friendly and helpful - they clearly care a great deal about the property and family. The house was clean when we arrived, the kitchen is well-equipped, and everything is well-ordered. The only down side to this special place, but one which doesn't detract much at all, is the fairly heavy traffic on Route 2. Many trucks ramble by at all hours, but one becomes used to and can mostly ignore it. Our entire extended family, from youngest to oldest, loved our 3-day experience and would return without hesitation!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is large enough to have an extended group of family or friends without crowding into bunkrooms. The large living room allows everyone to enjoy a winter fire while the screened-in porch provides a place for eating out in the summer air. Beautiful fall foliage on Mount Washington can be viewed from the front lawn.
