This gorgeous home sits on 24 wooded acres in SW New Hampshire. Built in 1774 by a Revolutionary War family, additions over the centuries make it an experience of serene nature, fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, rich furnishings-plus modern amenities!

Der Wohnraum

This is an incredible historic home on a gravel road in the forest. Spring, summer, fall, and winter, it's a beautiful rustic space. The tensions of the world melt away as you drive the forested roads, arrive on this gorgeous property, and enter to see rich wood floors, Persian rugs, lovely furnishings, fireplaces, and wood stoves that transport you to a more relaxed time. The house itself has five bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens, and 2 single beds w/trundle beds). Though it has all the charm of its historic roots, the home has a new kitchen and modern amenities to keep you comfortable and connected. Make this your annual relaxation space -- or home base for all the activities and sights that New England has to offer.

Zugang für Gäste

You'll have the run of the place during your stay, including miles of dirt roads and trails to hike. Enjoy!

Please know that many of the furnishings are valuable and treasured, so we expect you to take care of them as though they were your own.

The fireplaces and wood stoves provide wonderful ambience, but also pose safety risks because of their design and age. We charge an additional $150 for use of these amenities. Payment of this fee entitles you to unlimited wood and it pays our caretaker, the former owner of the home, to meet you, demonstrate the fire-starting techniques that work, and familiarize you with the fire extinguishers and safety equipment.

There are two bedrooms perfect for kids, but we do not expect that a group with children outnumbering adults is a good fit for the home. Just as you enjoy the quiet serenity, we expect you to keep noise to a minimum for the benefit of our neighbors (distant though they are). If you need anything, please do not hesitate to ask!

Our relatives who didn't have the fortune of staying with us wrote a few words: - The clan were invited over for breakfast this morning and would like to express their appreciation for sharing this lovely place with them. - It's a beautiful space, thanks so much for graciously sharing it with us. - This is such a spectacular home with new things to discover around every corner. Your warm and welcoming space made our visit much enjoyable. - What a beautiful retreat! We enjoyed exploring the house and the grounds. Thank you for sharing it. It's truly unique. - Amazing home - you can feel the centuries of love and warmth in it. What can I add? If you're looking for a rambling - how many rooms are there! - home from times long gone by, yet with not only modern amenities such as air conditioning, patios and a fully equiped kitchen and bathroom (jacuzzi!) but also little things like binoculars for that hike in the woods - then this is the place. Secluded in a lovely New England landscape with wild turkeys and porcupine, it must be lovely in winter. I would only hope that only those who appreciate such a lovely old home will come to stay! Last but not least, the consideration and care that Jim and Kat have shown us - and I suspect the local caretaker played an important role too - made this a perfect stay. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I've never stayed in a house older than the constitution! Cool to see the myriad of fireplaces and wood stoves, the well worn hearth. Overall a great option for a secluded get-away within two hours of boston.

Jim and Kat's home in Richmond is a beautiful, period-specific getaway in the woods of Richmond, NH. Communication was excellent and their home is exactly as described. Thank you both again!

Our second stay here was lovely. The woodlands, the spacious old home with charming nooks, and the luxurious linens were all just as good as the first time. We will come back again.

The house was beyond expectations. The description of the rental was very accurate, but once you arrived, you are blown away by the unique details inside and out. We were a group of 8 (2 families) looking for a different New Years getaway, and everyone agreed, this place delivered. We did have three children (ages 5-7), and the home worked well for them (The 15” of snow didn’t hurt). The communication with Jim was superb and even though very secluded, his directions were spot on. The caretaker, Don, was also very helpful during arrival and departure. The fireplaces in the house were old (and large), so I called to ensure we were lighting them right. The plethora of firewood just outside the main entrance was extremely convenient in keeping everyone warm during the evening and night. He also visited during checkout to ask if we needed any help (A++++ for Don). We did do some grocery shopping and found the town of Keene had everything we needed (20-minute drive). We are already talking about going back during the summer months as the area is beautiful. If you are looking for a place to getaway from the hustle and bustle, this is it.

Jim and Kat saved us from what could have been a bad situation. Our other reservation had to cancel and Jim opened their beautiful, cozy 1774 built house within hours of us contacting them. The home has an amazing character and captures history of hundreds of years. Set on a quiet road with woods behind the house - this is truly an enjoyable getaway. We were able to comfortably host 10 family members for a meal on Saturday and had sleeping babies in other rooms who did not get disturbed. We would highly recommend this home for your next stay.

The home was so much more beautiful than what the photos depict. They literally don't do any justice for Jim and Kat's home. The location is perfect, especially for those who are trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Jim was VERY hospitable and super available when it came to asking questions / concerns. The home is beautifully decorated with so many fire places to choose from and an elegant library. I would highly recommend this home for anyone who would want a memorable get away... Five stars !!!!

We're a Californian and a New Yorker living exactly half-way in between the two --- Washington, D.C.! But seriously, we enjoy hosting people here and helping them enjoy their visits, whether it's a few days for business, a Capitol vacation, or a few months rental. We recently bought a second home in New Hampshire, which we're making available to people who want to relax in a historic tranquil setting. Come on by!
