Charming Family Farm, Vacation Rental & Retreat
Sunny Slope Farm . . .
is a lovely 200 year-old, four-season family farm located on an old country road in the very heart of the Lakes Region of NH. The big white house, big red barn and big white stable sit at the bottom of a hayfield on 300 lovely acres that are traversed by miles of hiking, riding and cross-country ski trails that meander through fields & woodlands, over brooks and past a wild beaver pond.
The fully modernized farmhouse
is also fully furnished, with many antiques and fine, comfortable furniture; a piano; two fireplaces; two porches (one screened-in); a kitchen/library deck with a stone fireplace, a gas grill & a new 5-6 person hot tub; and a fully equipped kitchen, with china & silver for your special occasions and a big round pine table for your cozy family breakfast next to the woodstove.
A Four-Season Retreat . . .
perfect for a holiday vacation, a special family gathering, a wedding or a second honeymoon. Sunny Slope itself has almost 300 acres of woodlands, and fragrant hayfields that are perfect for a wedding in the autumn or family sledding parties in the winter (we have the best sledding hill in town!).
There are approximately 5 miles of trails available for snowmobiling, snowshoeing (of which we have 7 pair of varying sizes, available for the use of our guests...it's fun! Try it!), cross-country skiing, or for easy summer hiking over a brook and through the woods to a lovely old beaver pond deep in the woods ~ a perfect spot for critter-watching.
Sunny Slope Farm is so lovely,
you could easily spend every minute on the farm and be ecstatic at the end of your stay, but, just in case you’re more in the mood to venture forth, the Lakes Region is full to the brim with year-round activities. Rivers and lakes abound for kayaking and canoeing, and Lake Winnipesaukee ~ with its 400 miles of shore line, hundreds of tufty little islands, cozy coves and many classic lake towns ~ is internationally known for its fresh-water wreck diving. This lovely region of rolling hills and crystal-clear waters is also home to many historic and cultural sites, as well as many fine dining and shopping opportunities. Summer is over-flowing with music, theatre & fireworks all around the Lake.
And if you prefer the sea . . .
to the lakes, Portsmouth, and the NH seacoast, Kittery & York, Maine, with their beautiful beaches and plethora of theatre, music, shopping, great food, whale watching, architecture & history, are only about 45 mins. away.
Autumn offers leaf-peepers . . .
and antiquers equal pleasures while still nestled in the rolling hills of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. And, once the snow flies, only an hour’s drive from the home-fires of Sunny Slope Farm you will find the winter play-ground of the White Mountains and its many world-class ski areas.
Rest, Relax, Enjoy a Classic New England Farm
Sunny Slope Farm . . .
is our family home, the house where our father & his brothers and sisters grew up, and we do still use it for family gatherings and special events. Our family and our many cousins, who “grew up” on the farm and celebrated many a family reunion here, still come to stay whenever they can. We have been very pleased, though, that in the twelve years that we have been inviting guests to come and stay at the farm, we have had nothing but wonderful families and gatherings, and it has been a blessing all 'round for everyone concerned. Sunny Slope Farm is happiest and healthiest with families and friends gathered on its porches and around its tables and fireplaces. It has always been a welcoming and restful home, filled with celebrations.
Sunny Slope is such a lovely
place, especially for families to gather. And that is exactly why we share our family farm ~ so that it will be filled with families. We want folks to come to feel as if Sunny Slope Farm were their family retreat as much as it is ours. We want the farm to be as comfortable for your family & friends as it is for ours.
Our greatest wish . . .
is that this lovely place may be a welcoming home to both first time and returning visitors, where they can relax, play and enjoy being together. May this be a retreat for those in need of solitude, a festive hall for those who want to celebrate, and a portal to the wonders of this region for those who want to explore.
