From the magnificent and historic early 1800's post and beam barn, exclusive farmhouse apartments, loft and lake front cottage to 1,000's of feet of our private shore frontage on two ponds and almost 900 acres of woodlands, streams, fields and mountains available for secluded exploring and camping, the amenities are simply unequaled. All residences have been renovated to current standards including new low-E argon filled windows, both foam and blown insulation and efficient gas heating and EPA rated airtight wood stoves & fireplace inserts.
The bubbling brook tumbles dramatically down the mountain turning just behind the farmhouse before splitting the fields and finally reaching the ponds. There are several miles of private logging roads and paths to explore for hiking and biking along with expansive views of the lakes, fields and foothills of the White mountains, as well as access to all our private and unfettered shoreline on both of the Clemons ponds. The farm's pristine acreage is yours for almost any outdoor activity you can imagine. Astronomy buffs should take note that its pretty darn dark out here at night -you will be happy.!
For those looking for tasty treats while exploring on-site we also have our own huge private organic blueberry field for your pickings just a meadow walk away!
