About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This is a beautiful, well maintained farm house at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by 150 acres of undeveloped field and forest. A perfect retreat for writers, artists, yoga enthusiasts, or a family reunion.

Situated between the town centers of Bethlehem and Littleton, there are restaurants, book and antique shops, a Sunday flea market, Maya Papaya Coffee shop, as well as Chutter's Candy Store that boasts one of the longest candy counters in the US. Movie theatres in both towns provide nightly entertainment.

If getting back to nature is your goal, this is the place. The night sky sets off the stars like you never see near the city. Take a hike through the woods down to the river, swim or float on the playful rapids, and sunbath on lazy summer day on the pebbled banks of the Amanoosac River.

We are in the heart of the White Mountains, not far from skiing and swimming at Echo Lake at the base of Canon Mountain, where you can fish, rent canoes, or take an Canon Mountain Aerial Tramway ride up the slopes. Forest Lake is only a 15 minute drive, as is Moore Dam Reservoir, if you want to bring your boat. Bretton Woods ski area is not far a drive.

The White Mounains' famed Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch State Park, is only a 30 minute drive, where you can walk the 2 mile hike up past the waterfalls and covered bridges.

For fun day trips for the kids, less than 40 minutes will bring you to North Woodstock, NH where there is a water park, miniature golf, and other amusements.

Another great trip takes you to Clark's Trading Post, in Lincoln, NH, where you can take a miniature train ride, and see dancing bears. 40 minutes from Bretton Woods for cross country skiing, or feel free to cut your own trail over our 250 private woodland acres.

The large house with kitchen, dining room, living room, parlor, and several upstairs bedroom, a full bathroom with tub on first floor, shower on second, along with an additional half bath, will give you the space to stretch out, and enjoy a relaxing time away from the hectic daily pace of life. Though the furnishings are a bit of a hodge podge, you will love the light and comfort of this roomy home.

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Artist and his partner, took over the farm from their parents, who purchased and restored the smaller farmhouse 30 years ago. The rental property was part of the original farm, repurchased in 2008. Owners live up the road 'a piece.'

Why Littleton, Littleton, NH, USA:
We bought the house for our own living, but, have decided to remain in our old house for now, and hold onto the rental house for future living.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a remarkably serene spot in the White Mountains. Our property sits on one of the largest privately own parcels of land, almost 150 acres. There is a charming old barn on the property that boasts one of the truest peaks to be found in the area. We are at the end of a dirt road, off the beaten path, where the stars take your breath away at night, but we are close to two towns, and both have quite a lot to do to keep you from getting too bored.
