Camp Inches:
You will hear the Wild Meadow's babbling brook which runs the length of the property, while you take in the sights and sounds of nature.You'll have your very own private water hole and waterfall surrounded by a fully screened, lighted porch which overlooks the waterfall and swimming hole. This magical space allows you to enjoy the great outdoors from dusk to dawn! Want to "rough" it? A comfortable double futon is on the porch that can sleep a lucky 2, guaranteeing the most relaxing night's sleep you've ever had!

A large,open grassy field where you can play games, improve your chip shot or just relax by the stream. Take pleasure sitting under the stars around a roaring camp fire with your family and friends while you listen to the babbling brook.
I have an additional 9 acres of meadow land that's located across the road and available for your exploration and enjoyment! Cut trails will lead you to enjoy more of the Wild Meadows Brook and a sandy beach. Turkey, bear, moose and an abundance of other wild life thrive there, so stay sharp and bring binoculars for a closer view!

Camp Inches rustic interior provides that authentic country ambiance and we have five sliding glass doors through out the home for your viewing pleasure that brings the outdoors right inside.

Our great room doubles as the third bedroom. This is my favorite room in the house and connects directly to the screened porch. I decided to set it up this way so everyone could enjoy this room.

An 8 foot sliding glass door that leads you to the screened porch. Views of the brook while seated on the couch are an added pleasure.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1944

About the owner: I've spent my adult life living in Boston's "little Italy" in the city's historic North End. I've worked in many of the hotels and restaurants throughout the city including the Westin Hotel, Marriott Copley,Rowes Warf Waterfront Hotel and have since retired from the Cambridge Marriott, celebrating 25 years. I've been hosting and personally welcoming guests to our family vacation homes for over 10 years and have successfully managed another family vacation rental home in Mashpee, Cape Cod (WNAV ID 19678). Sharing Camp Inches peaceful,quiet get away with travelers has been extremely rewarding. Camp Inches has been in my family for over 70 years and I cherish that it was passed on to me. I've combined my hospitality skills and my commitment to excellence to assure my guests leave satisfied. I am always at Camp Inches to greet you upon arrival and will answer to your every need. Come and experience the beauty and quiet surroundings in the back woods of New Hampshire. Get away from it all at Camp Inches on Wild Meadow Brook. I will devote myself to you and yours and try my best to make sure you are happy, satisfied and rested.

Why the Owner Chose Danbury, NH, USA:
This is a treasured family property, handed down through 2 generations

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I fell in love with Camp Inches because of it's rustic charm, unique layout and peaceful location. I am especially drawn to the proximity of the Wild Meadows Brook to our home. The waterfall into the swimming pool is unique and sets Camp Inches apart. Even with the windows closed, you can hear that river!! It's so soothing and relaxing. The 5 sliding glass doors bring the outdoors right in. I love to walk Wild Meadow (9 acres) with my standard poodle Abby. Most of it is open meadow and the brook abuts the length of that property too. You can explore the Wild Meadow Brook and find swimming holes and little sandy beaches to rest and sunbathe.
