    Step into this spacious house, where you're greeted with beautiful hardwood flooring and large windows which allow sunlight to flood the space on bright afternoons. Even though it was recently remodeled and updated with brand new amenities and appliances, this historic New England home has retained its original charm.

    After a fun day swimming in the pool or exploring everything New Hampshire has to offer, kick back in the living room or family room and stream your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV. The house has wireless internet access, so you can surf the net or get some work done during your vacation!

    Make yourself a drink and head outside to one of the porches after dinner. You can unwind on the patio furniture and watch the sun dip below the mountains in the distance.

    All 18 guests are sure to sleep well at night in any of the 9 beautifully-decorated bedrooms! The master suite features a king bed and 2 full bathrooms, and the next 3 rooms have king beds with en-suite bathrooms. One room has a queen bed, 1 room has a full bed, 1 room has 2 twin beds, and 2 rooms have twin-sized daybeds with twin-sized trundle beds underneath.

    THE LOCATION

    This home is ideally located on a secluded 7-acre lot, yet is just 10 minutes from all of the action and attractions in downtown Keene and the quaint surrounding towns in New Hampshire and Vermont. Whatever your interests, there's something for you to do!

    Stonewall Farm, a working organic farm, is 1 mile from the house. You can hike or mountain bike through the farm, or try your hand at making cheese from their fresh milk! In 2015, the farm was named the best educational farm in New Hampshire by New Hampshire Magazine.

    If you're up for a more challenging hike, drive 30 minutes to Mount Monadnock. Be sure to bring your camera to get incredible shots from the summit!

    In the winter, take a 1-hour drive to either the Okemo or Mount Snow ski resorts. Both resorts offer fabulous trails for skiing and snowboarding.

    If you'd rather eat out than cook at home, you have plenty of dining options in Keene and the surrounding villages! Head to Battleboro to grab a brew and a burger at Whetstone Station Brewery, or a gourmet meal at Duo Restuarant. You can also stay in Keene and get a taco or burrito at Taqueria Odelay. There's a restaurant for everyone in the area!

    This place was great for a retreat. The dining room table was huge and comfortable for a workspace for 11 people. The grounds and living rooms provided great space for breakout sessions, long walks, and lots of thought provoking conversation. The kitchen was good for feeding 11 people. Most beds were quite comfortable - although the twin beds were a bit rough for adults. A very pleasant stay all around.

    House accommodated 16 adults without problems. Rooms were spacious, dinning room was perfect for our get together. Reason for 4.5 vs 5 stars -- we had to repair door knobs to get into or out of bedrooms (3). No cable -- we knew this going in, but it's difficult to understand how a rental at this price point, does not have it -- We cooked all meals except for a couple of lunches and found the kitchen and prep areas were excellent. The owners did a wonderful job in maintaining the house and keeping tenants informed. Our group has had yearly reunions for 31 years all over New England, and the colonial keene house was the best.

    Had the absolute best family weekend! We ranged from 2 months old to 65 years old and this house was perfect for everyone. Our son got married in Richmond NH and our immediate family and extended family from out of state stayed here. We had an absolute blast on the property and enjoyed all the space. The bedrooms were beautiful and so many bathrooms for everyone to get ready for the big event! We couldn’t have been happier. Thanks for a great stay!

    My husband and I rented this space for our bridal party for our wedding weekend, and we cannot say enough good things about this space! It perfectly held all 18 members of our bridal party, and provided an amazing space for everyone to hang out at during the wedding weekend as well as get ready in the day of. The space is so large that my husband and I were able to get ready in the same place without seeing each before the ceremony. The best part is that instead of being in a hotel all of our closest friends got to be together and got to get to know each other, but not once did they feel on top of each other. We also hosted our rehearsal dinner at the house, and it was perfect for accommodating our party of 30 people. We received so many compliments on the house by our bridal party and I cannot thank the hosts enough for providing such a beautiful back drop for our rehearsal dinner and wedding weekend. You cannot beat the value of this home! I would 100% recommend this home to anyone looking to host a large group gathering!

Pam served as our primary point of contact and she was incredibly thoughtful and accommodating. We really appreciated all of the work she and her team put into making our stay as memorable as possible. Thank you, Pam!! I can't recommend this place more highly.

    Had a wonderful stay and plenty of room. Only problem was the refrigerator wasn't working properly. The owner did have a rental delivered the next day and a new frig delivered, but it was delivered the day before we left. Unfortunately we had to throw some food away. But overall we had a wonderful time and would vacation here again. Karen

    The whole property was set up to give everyone something to do. From the fire pit to the pool to the games out back. Surprised to see a tree house also. House was as perfect as could be for any large group and we could spread out as needed. Highly recommend this to all for price and quality. Thank you again.

    The house was very clean, spacious and comfy for the 10 adults and 8 children that stayed at this house. Our family gathering was perfect. We never felt cramped in this house since there were so many places to hang out. The fire pit was perfect and so was the pool. The children enjoyed playing in the tree house which was nicely hidden in the back of the property. The kitchen was perfect for cooking for all and the dining room and kitchen table was perfect for seating everyone for dinners. We hope to do our family get-togethers again in this wonderful house.

    We stayed at Harks Hill as our family was gathering for a big family reunion. We were able to accommodate several families, which allowed for lots of opportunities to hang out and visit. The configuration of the nine bedrooms was perfect for the group, which allowed farflung family members to land in one place. Other family stayed in local hotels and another airbnb. Ours was the envy of everyone! The highlights were the well-appointed kitchen which allowed for collaborative cooking, the large diningroom, which allowed us to eat together, and the various gathering spaces, which allowed the kids to watch TV while the adults visited in another room or on the porch. The firepit and pool were big hits with the kids and adults. We appreciated the AC in the bedrooms in the summer humidity. Our stay at Harks Hill made the week very special. Thank you!

    ? We just spent this past weekend attending my daughter's graduation from nearby Keene State College and this beautifully appointed 9 bedroom home (estate) was perfect to house all of the traveling family and host several dinners and gatherings. Many separate living areas allow family to congregate and the dining table holds over 14. We loved the screened porch for afternoon cocktails, and the many ensuite bedrooms provided the privacy the older family desired. The kitchen was massive with a separate butler/coffee area and separate sink. The home is just a quarter mile from the bike trail and 3 miles to beautiful downtown Keene but feels very remote. Highly recommend !

    This very large home was perfect for our recent stay with extended family to celebrate our daughter's graduation from the nearby college. Beautifully decorated, with a lot of living space so everyone could spend time together or separately for more intimate conversations. The kitchen was large and provided tons of counter space with a separate butlers' pantry, and the dining table sat over 14. There are at least 4 large bedrooms with their own baths on the second floor and 5 more bedrooms on the 3rd. Beautiful grounds - feel removed but only 3 miles from Keene NH and shopping and dining. Highly recommend.

    We had a group of 15 for a weekend of cooking, hiking, and catching up. This home could not have provided a better setting--it is spacious, designed for living in, and had everything we needed during our stay. The description of the property is spot on. Although it was not yet warm enough to make use of the pool, we did enjoy the expansive grounds for early morning walks and breakfast outside. The owners were very responsive, accommodating, and provided us with many recommendations for hikes and activities in the local area. Highly recommended.

    This property is absolutely beautiful. The house is enormous and was perfect for a big gathering. There were plenty of spaces inside to hang out and, if the weather had been better, there were some great spots outside as well. There's not much to do in downtown Keene, but Mt. Monadnock isn't far at all and there's plenty of gorgeous scenery to take in.

    This place is amazing. The renovations are beautiful, it's extremely spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. We had 13 people and fit with lots of extra room - there are two living rooms, 9 bedrooms and a massive kitchen. I also expected the house to be in a remote area given how many acres it's on, but it was minutes from downtown Keene and very close to farms, and other attractions. We went in the winter, but I think it would be especially fantastic in the summer, when you can use the pool, tree house, rope swings and go hiking nearby. Would definitely book again - super easy check in and communication!
