              Year Purchased: 2003

              Why the Owner Chose Wonalancet:
              Beautiful Country Escape nestled between the White Mountains and Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Wonalancet is a village in the northwestern corner of the town of Tamworth in Carroll County, New Hampshire. The name 'Wonalancet' translates to 'Pleasant Breathing' which you can't help but enjoy during your stay. Many popular hiking trails into the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains have trail heads in the area, particularly in the locale known as Ferncroft, up a short spur road from Wonalancet. The village itself is named for the Pennacook Indian leader Wonalancet.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              The property is positively New Hampshire at its best! Something incredible to offer each and every season. Peaceful pastoral setting connects to amazing trail network makes this get away a treasure inside and out.
