Location

The Coop is located on Newfound Farm,1.5 miles above the lake on a former 19th century sheep farm, on a dirt road.

The cottage is on the site of former chicken coop and is surrounded by fields and woods, with a lovely view to Newfound Lake. The main house has a recycled clothing business.

We're finishing a one mile hiking trail on the property, which can be easy or challenging, depending on your route. It's well marked, so no chance of getting lost!

Local cycling enthusiasts have worked with the state highway department to widen roads around the lake to allow for safer cycling, so bring your bike.

Privacy and quiet makes this an excellent location for writers and artists. You can hike right out the door with deer and turkeys for company.

Please read the Reviews for more ideas of what to do which other "Coopers" have found interesting!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Phyllis and Mitch are contented new arrivals to the Plymouth/Newfound area. Mitch Manseau is an inveterate hiker of many decades, retired Air Force officer and active in local town government. If your interest is hiking, you've got an experienced, trained AMC hike leader built in! Now he adds taming the fields with his Kubota tractor, and selectively cutting wood for the house's exterior wood boiler. Phyllis Rockwell creates clothing from recycled fabrics, gardens, and sings with the internationally-touring NH Friendship Chorus.

Why the Owner Chose Plymouth, NH, USA:
Mitch and Phyllis were looking for acreage with or without a building attached for many months. When this property became available, Mitch's comment upon seeing the house was, 'Where's a match?' (Please ask to see the original photos.) Reason prevailed, and a 10 month redevelopment followed by a wonderful home occurred. The Coop was the last Big Project, which we think you'll grow to love also.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unique benefits? Just look around! Be as active as you wish: you can partake in the busy life of the lake, or reconstitute your soul in the peace of the farm.
