The house is a special place. It has been a welcoming home for families since it was built in 1830. It is my family homestead where my children grew up. I live a few minutes away and my family stays in the house when they are in the area. When we are not at home, we love to share our place with you. We live in a rural setting with no other homes in sight, but right around the corner from NH 101, Shaws and CVS, as well as all the wonders of the Monadnock region. Our guests especially enjoy our large open concept kitchen and dining area that opens to the two porches. Bed linens, blankets and towels are included. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, silverware and glassware, as well as pots and pans. An outdoor grill is available for use during the warmer months. Rates are for the use of six bedrooms and the two bathrooms, and are for up to six people staying, with up to eight for an additional fee. Included in rates is turnover cleaning. The NH 9% meals and rentals tax will be added to your quote. If you require a price detail please inquire. My NH Meals and Rentals License No. is 059642 The details: A first floor 180 square ft. sunny south west corner bedroom with a tiny interior bath furnished with a queen size bed; Another first floor bedroom behind the kitchen is furnished with a double bed; A second floor cozy 110 square ft. south west corner bedroom has a twin folding cot; A south east corner bedroom 180 square ft. is furnished with a queen folding futon bed; An alcove bedroom 100 square ft. has a twin folding cot; At the back of the second floor is the den bedroom of 220 square ft. furnished with a double bed, includes a connected 200 square ft. dressing room. We ask that you cover our mattress and pillow covers with the clean sheets provided. If you need beds made, please let me know a few days prior to arrival. No worries about stripping the beds, or cleaning linens and towels. We will take care of that after you leave. We ask that you wash, dry and put away your dishes prior to departure. Recycling is mandatory in Dublin, and we ask that you follow the recycling guidelines for our town. By sorting the items into the provided labeled bins, and removing caps and rinsing plastic and glass. The house is great for families. At your request, I will set up the safety gates for the stairs. Please know that our home is large, and there is a lot of open land outside. Children must be supervised at all times both in and outside our home. Please take note that there are two small bathrooms in the house, each with a single sink. The first floor bathroom is tiny, and is accessed only through the first floor bedroom. The bedroom behind the kitchen is a distance from either bathroom. The stairs from first to second floor have a short rise and run. To circumnavigate the stairs, there is a ground level access to the second floor at the back of the house. It is accessed from outdoors. At your request, I will install a child safety gate at the top of the stairs. We have a private septic system and well. The fresh water from our well is safe to drink. Some people prefer to drink our water, however you are welcome to bring your own bottled water and ice. Our fresh well water is treated with a whole house Culligan water softener system. There are systems in our basement that may be heard inside the home. Our water pump for the well is in the basement, which will be heard cycling on and off with use of water. Our heat and hot water is off an oil fueled Buderus boiler with two thermostatically controlled zones. There are two thermostatically controlled propane space heaters (upstairs dressing room and first floor bedroom) as well as a propane fueled Jennair range in the kitchen. If unfamiliar with rural propane appliances, please communicate with me prior to staying. It is different than city gas, however the same precautions are used. If you smell gas, exit the home and call from outdoors. We have no gas alarm, the best indicator is your nose. Our large dehumidifier with fan, and several sump pumps will be heard more frequently during humid and/or rainy weather. Basically, if anything sounds too loud, seems unusual, or smells wrong, give me a call and I will check it out. We have high speed DSL internet service with WiFi as this is a rural location. We have a landline phone with unlimited local calling. Our satellite is off for the time being. We are close to MacDowell and Dublin lakes for swimming, boating, walks, and near many hiking trails. Horseback riding is available at a nearby stable. Close to Peterborough, where there is access to Common pathway for bicycling. Many recreational resources are available through the Peterborough Recreation Department. Shaws and CVS are a short drive away. A gas station and convenience store is one mile away.
