House rules
The host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
Ground level of rustic barn with 4 bedrooms, big kitchen, dining, living room, 2 level deck, fire pit, grill. Big field for dogs & kids to play. Good for playing acoustic music, board games, heart to heart conversations and deep sleep. Close to Peterborough with restaurants, art, live music, yoga, fancy shops, swimming, biking, skiing. Small quiet NH town. Not suited for rowdy parties (cops notice) but lively gatherings work! Vintage home, high energy kids need to be attended.

The space
This post and bean barn was built in 1850. Renovation has not covered much of the areas where you can see pegs and notch construction. My grandparents renovated the first floor in the 1950s, putting a ceiling on the hayloft to create a foyer and turning the horse stalls into bedrooms. This is where my father's first jazz bands rehearsed for their summer tours. My grandfather was a bookworm and even though we got rid of hundred of books, there are still couple hundred lining the walls. Over the years we updated the kitchen, added a full bathroom but tried to keep the rustic hardware and general layout. There is a stone fire pit out back near a meadow where the peeper frogs will sing to you all night.

Guest access
Kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, deck, backyard field, all common areas are accessible. Basement and attic space are off limits. Driveway is crushed stone and sand which can be more difficult than pavement for anyone with a wheelchair, walker, or cane. Host keeps some personal items in a bedroom upstairs.

Other things to note
Host uses a bedroom on upstairs level, does not use downstairs level, doesn't socialize with guests unless they desire. Host wears mask, gets tested regularly. Guest have full use of main level.

I'm a piano teacher, yogi and bookworm. I love this small New Hampshire town, the smell of pines trees and sounds of the meadow. This barn has been in my family since 1850. I'm delighted that more people will be able to make beautiful memories here.
