A great opportunity to run an established B&B business, create an art colony-offer workshops, or provide your visiting family and friends with a wonderful place to stay. This unique property consists of an 1800ís post and beam farmhouse that has been stunningly renovated in 2013, a new 2-bay garage with loft potential, and Sunrise Cottages and the Breakfast Shed. In all there are 5 buildings situated on over 5 acres of land surrounded by apple trees, wildflowers, a farm pond, and a brook that flows through a cedar and pine forest.  Visit my blog Deteriorate or Renovate that followed the total renovation.

The original house from the mid 1800ís had a 1 room schoolhouse added to it in the 1970ís. The newly renovated house, with many windows added for southern exposure, has created an open floor plan with interior walls and upper floors removed to create cathedral ceilings and exposed beams throughout.  The cherry cabinets in the kitchen coordinate with the wood trim and wood floors throughout the house. The large floor to ceiling brick fireplace in the living room has a wood burning stove and on the kitchen side there is an additional flue for a gas or wood stove.  A screened cedar-trimmed patio is accessible through French doors off of the living room. The large master bedroom has access to a private deck. There is a second bedroom (now used as an office) and laundry room on the first level. The upper level has a finished loft which can be used as a third bedroom, office, or hobby room. The partially finished basement has a new half bath, a washer and dryer for the cottages, a sink with cabinet, furnace room and 3 additional rooms. There are two exterior walk out doors and 6 windows which provide plenty of air circulation and light.  

There are two 18 x 20 sq. ft. cottages, tastefully finished on the inside with wainscoting and hardwood floors and a cathedral ceiling gives a feeling of open space. There is a sitting alcove and a large bathroom.  The cottages are sited away from the main house and breakfast restaurant and provide the guest with quiet and privacy. The breakfast restaurant measures 20 x 22 sq. ft. and is licensed as a 9 seat restaurant. It has a galley kitchen and a dining room finished in tongue and groove pine for a feeling of warmth. The grounds have open fields, apple trees, farm pond, brook, mature plantings, large white pines and a ground cover of lupine in the summer.
