Property description

Historic 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom Farmhouse near Sunday River Ski Resort. Fully equipped large eat in kitchen, dining room, 2 large living rooms each with cozy woodstoves, and beautiful large backyard situated on a spring-fed brook.

This charming updated rambling farm house with modern amenities is the perfect setting to enjoy your favorite outdoor winter activities with friends and family.

Summer/Fall: Kayak/canoe the Androscoggin River across the street from the house. The hiking options are unlimited ranging from easy to difficult. There are many swimming holes and waterfalls to cool off in the local mountains. Grafton Notch (~20-30min drive) and the White Mountain NAtional Forest are great starting points for hikes (closest entrance is 3 miles away). Enjoy events at Sunday River, which are running all year long (mud-runs, beer festivals, etc). Enjoy great local food in Bethel, Maine or Gorham, NH each a 15minute drive from the house. Hike or take the cograil up Mt Washington (~45 minute drive). Or just enjoy the beautiful 1.5 acre secluded backyard with your own private brook and mini waterfall!

Winter: Not only is Sunday River a quick drive away, but there are also great snowshoeing trails and miles of snowmobiling trails from the backyard, as well as local opportunities for cross country skiing and dog sledding.

The arrangement of the house allows for privacy if you need to get away from the big group, as well as comfortable areas for everyone to congregate. There are 2 separate living rooms each with ample comfortable seating, wood stove, television, and VCR or Wii/DVD player. The fully equipped kitchen offers plenty of space and equipment to prepare meals; and the dining room can seat up to 12 with 6 additional seats in the eat-in kitchen.

Five bedrooms with a mixture of twin and double/queen beds allows this property to be suitable for a variety of groups – adventure groups, multi-family groups, groups of couples, and multigenerational families. This property comfortably sleeps 18, but is cozy enough for smaller parties as well.

Master Suite: king bed and en-suite full bathroom
Bedroom #2: Queen bed + baby crib
Bedroom #3: Queen bed + 2 twin beds
Bedroom #4: Full bed + 2 twin beds
Bedroom #5: Full bed + 2 twin beds
Living room: Full pull-out couch.
