Property type farmhouse

About the property

Eleven bedrooms and eleven bathrooms

Formerly an inn, this casual colonial farmhouse can comfortably sleep 22-25 people in 11 bedrooms (with 11.5 bathrooms). With over 5000 square feet of light-filled living space, it offers two living rooms, dining for 22 - 24, a screened deck, and a three-season porch with table tennis. Its airy decor features antiques, natural fibers, sunlight, exposed brick and timbers, clawfoot tubs, jetted tubs, and wood floorboards. Despite nods to modernity such as whole-house Wifi, a large cook’s kitchen with Viking range and cable TV, the house manages to retain the simple charm of an era long ago. With both a pond and a stream on the property, the public boat launch onto Lake Winnipesaukee is one mile down the road (with plenty of room on the grounds to keep your boat). It is perfect for large groups such as wedding guests, reunions, and retreats. Set in nearly ten acres of apple orchards, woods, and lawn, the farmhouse offers the peace and quiet of country living, with the convenience of nearby shops and restaurants. The house is located directly opposite The New Woodshed, is just three miles from Castle in the Clouds, and is approximately two hours drive from Boston. (Please note: The barn and cottage located on the grounds are the Managers and owners accommodation and are not included in the rental.)

Plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

My group of 15 adults found this house spacious and bright. There were so many bedrooms we didn't even use them all. The multiple common areas were large and gave us plenty of room to either be all together at one time, or to have quieter, separate spaces when we wanted them. There were many interesting knick-knacks and decorations around that my group appreciated. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed for meal preparation, laundry, and internet access. The owner (Shannon) and caretaker (Kim) were very responsive whenever we had questions.

Because this is a very old house, there were some aspects that are to be expected. The staircase in the original wing is very steep. The owners were quite creative in carving out bathrooms so that almost all the rooms have one, but some of them are small and/or awkwardly laid out. This is not the best place for anyone who has mobility impairments.

That said, I recommend the Olde Orchard Inn for large groups/family reunions and Shannon was a great host to work with.

Over the moon Mother of Groom

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of renting this property for my son's wedding last July. It was beyond perfect. We used the location to house family and friends, host a dinner and even stayed on for vacation time in this glorious location. Our family and guests are still gushing about the elegant but comfortable accommodations. Private but easy access to lake activities. I highly recommend this property with its gracious hosts and beautiful accommodations. Thank you!
