Here for a long weekend and it was wonderful. House was very comfortable with all essentials and kitchen items you could want/need. Comfortable couches and beds. Great property for walks (trails) and for pets. Location is close to everything as well. Owners are very responsive.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home! The Hand Hewn Barn exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived.
Directions to the property were thorough and the driveway was clearly marked. The home is conveniently located to Manchester Center and local ski mountains. Although close to town and easy to get to, the Barn is tucked into the woods perfectly for a secluded feel. The view of the pond and woods made for beautiful sunsets in the evening too!
The interior of the Barn was exactly as we had hoped. Rustic, circa 1840 structure and decorative touches were paired beautifully with modern flooring and large windows which kept the open interior sunny and bright for most of the day. We spent many hours reading on the sunporch overlooking the pond and in front of the large focal fireplace. The spacious common areas felt cozy amid the open floor plan. Regarding the fireplace, our hosts had plenty of firewood on hand to use during our stay. This was very appreciated.
The rest of the home was also well appointed. Especially the kitchen which had everything we needed. We absolutely loved cooking and dining at the Barn!
Perhaps the biggest treat for us was the proximity of the Barn to the Appalachian Trail. The Long Trail is a quick walk from the front door. A nor'easter had come through during our stay but we were still able to get a hike in the following day. Being so close to the Barn was such a treat following our cold and soggy hike!
Even as we packed our things at the end of our stay, we began talking about our next visit to the Hand Hewn Barn. We absolutely loved it!
I should also mention that our hosts were wonderful. Warm, welcoming and attentive to our needs. We had contact with both the owners and their son. All were quick to respond to emails and phone calls and took care to make us feel at home in their beautiful listing.
Thank You! We'll be back!
