Country House With Screened Porch Amidst Woods, Lakes, And Mountains - Andover, NH - Merrimack Valley NH Vacation Rental

Once home to a working artist, this comfortable and well equipped two-bedroom house offers peace & relaxation. Nearby Ragged Mountain, Mt. Kearsarge, and our numerous lakes and ponds, and lovely Mountain Brook will provide inspiration for the artistic soul.

Relax on the screened porch surrounded by a nearly wild cottage garden and watch baby birds learn to fly. Enjoy the collection of books, original art, and antiques while relaxing in comfortable seating and queen-sized platform beds. The dining room has a roomy table that will seat 6. In the gallery, a games table with a selection of games and puzzles is at one end, and a comfy futon sofa and smart TV with DVD player occupies the other. The whole house gets wifi.

Our area offers four distinct seasons of widely differing weather, conditions, and experiences from our crisp, cool autumns with their brilliantly colored autumn leaves to icy, snowy sub-zero winter conditions. Spring is lovely and summer can be hot and sultry, or mild and pleasant.

Two bicycles are available to ride around on the country roads, or about a mile and a half ride will take you to the Northern Rail Trail, which then offers 56 miles of biking through scenic NH countryside and villages.

It is a short drive to two trails to the top 2700' Mt. Kearsarge, one easy and the other moderately challenging. Other mountains are well within range. Several lakes and ponds with beaches and boat launches are within easy reach, and our quiet country roads and trails throughout the neighborhood offer endless walking options. Ocean beaches and the spectacular White Mountains are about two hours away.

Winter guests can snowshoe and cross-country ski in the woods and fields just outside the front door, or rent skis for use on a nearby groomed trail system. Ragged Mountain Ski Area is 17 miles away, Mt. Sunapee is 24 miles, and many others are within range.

The wicker furniture on the screened porch will entice you to spend hours lounging and watching the nesting phoebes, and the hummingbirds and butterflies. Look for wild turkeys and deer in the field across the road and watch the fireflies and listen to the owls at night. We sometimes see moose, foxes, and other less common creatures in the neighborhood.

While this house isn't wheelchair accessible, one bedroom, the full bath, and all the main rooms are on one floor and parking is a level, short walk to the house entrance, which has one step. If you have special needs we will do whatever we can to help.

The garden is gradually coming back after twenty years of neglect. There is assortment of culinary herbs and flowers out the front door, and a palette of perennial flowers from spring to fall. The wonderful views of forest and fields will be enriched by a foreground of colorful flowers.

The town of New London, about 10 miles away, offers fine dining, a range of shops, and a good summer theater. The cities of Concord, Hanover, Lebanon, and Tilton offer movie theaters and shopping.
