The Space

The Farmhouse is located about three hours from Boston, yet it feels a world away. Set in the midst of 300 acres of woods and rolling pastures that comprises Thurston Family Farms, The Farmhouse is a place of quiet beauty. During each season, views of "farm life" can be witnessed from the many windows.

The Farmhouse offers three beautiful main spaces for guests to gather. The large kitchen invites community gathering around the nine foot kitchen island with bar stool seating. The kitchen also offers two sinks, a large stainless steel refrigerator, a gas stove and oven, and is stocked with a full array of kitchen utensils and cookware. 

An eight foot long, cherry, handcrafted farmhouse table centered in an eight by six foot bay window is the perfect dining room setting for sharing food and drink together. The dining room also offers a seating nook with comfortable chairs, an ottoman, more beautiful views, and a piano for the musicians among your group.

Stairs heading to the second level from the kitchen will bring guests to a considerably sized "family room" space, with an eight foot picture window and several other windows which overlook the pastures, fields and barns. This family room space offers a vaulted ceiling, both a queen and a full sized pull out sofa, a gas fireplace, a "book nook" with a small table and bookshelves stacked with books, and a telescope for viewing the bright stars in the clear country sky. This room is a great space for board games, reading, and comfortable group gatherings.

There are five traditional bedrooms and three full baths at The Farmhouse and also one room with a full sized futon that can turn into a bedroom. Each bedroom offers beautiful views of the pastures and forests surrounding the home. Comfortable beds, plush linens, and a blend of rustic and modern design offer guests a good night's sleep.
