Bottom Line Up Front: This is an amazingly quaint property with 2 of the most lovely and friendly owners I have ever met. The house is very cozy and the property is beautiful. If you are looking for a relaxing and welcoming experience, this is the place for you. As with any hotel or inn, the owners and the staff make the experience and the owners and small staff were nothing but friendly, welcoming and hospitable. North Conway is a beautiful area and this property make you feel like you are at a home away from home. This is by far one of the most unique experiences we have had and would go back again in a heart beat!
I am currently working in Bahrain and I was home on leave when we visited the property. My Fiance and I wanted to have a romantic ski weekend away from our busy schedule in Pennsylvania. The Farm allowed us to relax, slow down and enjoy the amazing landscape and atmosphere of the area.
We talked with Rick and Charlene before arriving and let them know that we would be in late so they put a note on the door and gave us directions to our room. They were very accommodating to our late arrival. We woke up the next morning with the slopes of Attitash on our mind. We walked downstairs and were greeted my 2 other guests and the innkeepers with coffee, juice and the most delicious blueberry muffins in the world. After our eggs made to order, we started talking to Rick about the area, skiing and the property. He gave us a tour of the inn and was so friendly and personable. We felt like we were at home with our parents or grandparents. Rick is very knowledgeable about the entire area and can point you in the right direction to whatever it is you like. He recommended the Moet microbrew for dinner after skiing. We loved the atmosphere, food and beer.
The next morning started of with another amazing breakfast and a conversation with Charlene and 2 other guests after. The communal feel of the property, the openness of all the guests and the welcoming spirit of the property and owners just made our experience that much better. We spent our afternoon meeting and petting all the horses and playing with the 2 goats on the property, who act more like dogs. We explored the sugar shack maple syrup producer and then made dinner plans with our new friends from the inn. We went to the Moet again and ended on another amazing note.
Sunday came and it was time to go, but not without some amazing french toast and coffee. we packed up pur car, said goodbye to all of our new friends, including the horses and goats. After thanking Rick and Charlene we were off. The entire experience of the weekend left us smiling all the way back to Pennsylvania.
