About
Explore over 200 years of rural living as we preserve the agricultural way of life in New Hampshire. Discover agricultural practices, rural traditions, and important contributions of the country doctor. Interact with the landscape settled by the Remick family in 1790, whose generations include father and son country doctors who served the community in which they lived for a combined 99 years. As a working farm, the buildings are an integral part of the Museum and include milk, ice, and maple sugar houses. The story of the farm comes to life as you tour the property, engage with farm animals and witness daily chores. Take in gardens, walking trails and views of Mt. Chocorua. Tour the Capt. Enoch Remick House—on the National Register of Historic Places—which contains the original doctors' office and apothecary. Conveniently nestled in a "less traveled" area between the White Mountains and Lakes Region, interactive experiences occur each season. Open year-round.

When we arrived the farmer greeted us and directed us were to go. He also made it a point to let us know that there was a new born calf.

Good for kids (who like farms)

If you need to get a fix of some cows, sheep, and goats this is a good place. They also have many specialized weekend events.

It is not often when you tour as an older home it contains all original furniture and fixtures. This house was a country doctors home and office. Ths doctors office has all or most of his original equipment. Children ed n get to collect eggs, feed goats and help milk cows. Very pretty place. And inexpensive.

We are happy to know you took The Country Doctor Tour and were interested in the medical artifacts and the unique details of the building, as well. And it sounds like you may have some future farmers on your hands. Glad you stopped by and come again!

My husband and I had the opportunity to visit the museum after a recent snowfall. He was hesitant but as we drove into the most charming town with the back drop of Mount Chocorua he quickly perked up. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I was not sure if this museum would hold interest for 2 retired people but it definitely rose to the occasion. The history of this area and the people who owned this farm was mesmerizing. Bequeathing it to the town was a huge boon for all of us. Do not miss the section on natural remedies, their uses and past history. Loved every second.

Hello, LearningExplorer, and thank you for sharing your glowing review! We are thrilled to know that our country doctor and Remick family history held so much interest for both of you and that you found the “Our Medicine Through Time” exhibit worthy of special mention. Our location is surely part of the Remick experience and we feel wintertime provides an extra dose of magic. So glad you stopped in and we hope you can visit with us again.

Delightful place
Sep 2018 • Couples
My husband and I (no children with us) visited the day before their fall festival. Even though one of the houses was closed (getting it winterized), there was still plenty to see and enjoy. The exhibits are well done and the grounds of the homestead are beautiful.

I would definitely recommend visiting with, or without, kids!

Summer Camp student visit
Aug 2018 • Family
30 students arrived on a bus and were quickly split into two groups. Our group first made corn husk dolls while discovering many interesting facts about the process. Next, our group moved to hand dipping to make beeswax candles. We were educated about the many different ways folks lit their house throughout the 1700 and 1800's.

Thank you for telling travelers about your group experience, hbooska! It sounds like you were able to have some hands-on fun as you learned about aspects of New England history. We hope your summer campers will visit with us again next summer.

Nice place to learn & explore
May 2018 • Couples
What I like best is that this property illustrates a wider slice of 19th century life than many other historic sites. This place includes the country doctor's practice, the house, the farm, the fields.

It is a "must do" for school children, but should also be for adults. One note of caution, the grounds are uneven and rocky. Persons with walking issues should be aware.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, Life0ntheb0rder. We are pleased you enjoyed exploring the span of time represented on the historic Remick property and in the varied buildings. Knowing you feel a visit is a “must do” for children is also gratifying. We are always working to improve the Remick experience for all ages of visitors and have noted your impressions of the site in relation to older adults. Thank you for making Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm a stop in your travels — come, see us again!

Cute spot for toddlers
Jul 2018 • Family
We went here with our 2.5 and 1 year old. They could care less about the museum, but they liked the animals. We happened to go in the afternoon around 2, which was perfect because they had a farm tour scheduled at 2:30 and cow milking demonstration at 3:00. On the farm tour, you learn a bit about the animals, but they also let the kids feed the chickens and collect the eggs, which they loved! I would definitely recommend checking the schedule and try to make it for the tour because it makes it worth the trip (about a half hour from North Conway area), besides just seeing the animals.

Hello Aimee. We’re happy your young family enjoyed your visit, time with the animals, and being farmers’ helpers. Helping out with farm chores is always a big hit with our visitors, no matter the age (it often makes children out of adults), and it’s good to know that tradition continues. Thank you for your visit and support and we hope you can return as your children grow!

An Up Close And Personal Working Farm Experience
Jul 2018 • Family
We randomly stumbled upon this gem in Tamworth looking for an outdoor activity with two finicky teenage girls. What a little treasure this is. We were lucky enough to meet Andrew, a knowledgeable and personable young tour guide. He was so informative and answered all of our questions. He knew how to keep the girls attention also. I highly recommend this working farm and museum for all ages. There are goats, sheep, cows, chickens, a mini horse, and pigs. I can’t say enough about this wonderful family experience. Thank you for preserving this farm for generations to enjoy.

Hello, Nanci, and thank you for your stellar review. We are so pleased to learn your “stumbled upon” experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all ages in your family. Based on your interest in learning about them, we expect the animals were just as happy to have up-close-and-personal time with you as you were to share time with them. With continued enthusiasm for impactful agricultural experiences, such as you've expressed, we look forward to providing meaningful, all-ages programming for many years to come. Thank you for your visit and support!

Excellent visit
Jun 2018 • Couples
Two adults spent a couple of hours here on a rainy Monday. Excellent visit. The museum you start in was where the country doctor and his wife lived on the second floor. Very interesting decor. Looked familiar to me from growing up in the 1950s. Other interesting exhibits on the first floor. The day we were there, they had two young calves, a rather large rabbit, miniature pony, three adult goats and two kids, all near the main museum. The kids were bottle fed and adorable. Further off we could see sheep, geese and a barn that had cows but was too wet out to walk to through the rain.

There is a trail to follow around the property that would be great on a nice day.

We would definitely have spent more time here on a non-rainy day.

Also, the building that held the doctor’s actual office was not yet open for the season, so we missed that.

We’re so glad your group stopped in, despite the rainy day, and appreciate your thoughtful review, Chris—thank you! It sounds like Doc and Marion’s apartment was a fun memory trigger for you, as it is for many people. We hope you can visit again when the Captain Enoch Remick House is open. Happy travels!
