    Great stay at historic and comfortable home

    My family had a wonderful stay at the Story Homestead. The home is set off a rural road and very private. We enjoyed watching the turkeys cross the lawn in the morning and the firepit in the evenings. The location is great -- close to Hanover, NH and also to lakes and trails for recreation. Communication was very good and helpful. The maple syrup was a lovely gift.

    Fun Adventure at the Story Homestead

    We stayed 10 days at the Story Homestead with our almost 2 year old. It was a really neat experience and it grew to feel like home. We were sad to leave at the end of our trip! The kitchen is fully stocked and we cooked a lot. The barn is full of yard games, boats, and other things for guest use. There was a closet full of toys, games, and books. We saw turkeys crossing through the yard in the morning and the history of the home made it feel charming. The only bathroom is in need of renovation, although the shower was newer. The carpets could also be replaced, especially upstairs. The master bed was very comfortable. The stairs, as described, are very steep so I’m not sure it would work for a big family since the only bathroom is on the first floor. My husband worked from the house for several days and the internet was fast enough for streaming and remote work. Overall, we really loved our stay and are missing it now that we’re back in Pennsylvania!

    Fit the needs of our two families and there was a nice bit of charm too!

    This place was perfect for our two families. It was nice to be able to cook a meal together and play games around the table in the evening.

    Great place for a family

    This was a great place for our family. It was calm, relaxing, clean, and had plenty of stuff for the kids to do. It was close to local swimming spots and other area attractions. The owner, Mike, communicated with us and told us all about the property. We didn’t us the kayaks or canoes, but we would have if our kids were older. I highly recommend this house. We had a perfect stay!

    Winter wonderland

    We had a great experience at the Story house! We used it as our launching pad for adventures across the Upper Valley. Great location. Close enough to the places we wanted to go but far enough off the beaten path to really enjoy the peace and quiet. Kids loved the home and the barn and played out on hills (there was a decent amount of snow) outside. Great hosts who built really cute history notebook. Was surprised to see wooden chest of former Dartmouth President in the living room. They provided comfy linens, shower was nice and warm and tons of board games to play after dinner. Loved our trip!

    Beautiful location in Enfield Nh

    We loved our stay at the farm house and look forward to returning when we can. The posted description and images are accurate: the property is beautiful and peaceful and the house very comfortable. We had everything we needed for a relaxing stay and Mike is an excellent host who quickly responded to any questions. We enjoy the outdoors and found great hiking trails to explore through our All Trails app but also had business in Hanover NH which was an easy trip north. We would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in visiting the "Upper Valley" area of New Hampshire and Vermont for hiking, skiing, exploring or simply relaxing. We were lucky to experience fantastic foliage during our October visit...a great bonus!
