A warm and inviting weekend getaway filled with fun for all!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful fall weekend at Locke Falls Farm. The house has everything we needed for our family. Our boys, who are six and two, loved exploring the house and the property. We hiked the trails along the property in the morning, admired the beautiful fall foliage, spent a fun day at Story Land and ended our trip climbing at Monkey Trunks. It was the perfect weekend getaway. Highly recommend this property to families looking for a home base that has everything and is conveniently located to outdoor adventures, shopping and dining. If only we didn't have to leave... We'll be back!

Best wedding site anywhere near Boston!

  • 5 of 5
We are a couple in our thirties from the Boston area who got engaged in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It was our dream to get married in those mountains and that dream came true at Debra's place.

Not only is the house extremely beautiful and the perfect set up for a wedding venue (just take a look at those pictures!) but Debra is the perfect host. She has a ton of experience catering and planning events herself, so she was able to anticipate and take care of our needs. Anything we required and she was just a phone call or email away and she always quickly responded.

She is also extremely knowledgeable and well-connected. Debra was able to send me a list of caterers and wedding supply rental companies who were all local, reliable and affordable. This sped up my search process immensely and I was grateful to know I would be taken care of by all these vendors. Like hiking? She was even able to recommend great trails and supply us with maps of the area!

The property is stunning and perfect for a wedding/event or just getting away. The place is well taken care of and newly remodeled. It used to be a sheep farm and horse corral, so with the remodel it really has this "rustic elegance" and serene beauty, which was exactly what we were looking for. We looked at dozens of properties and event venues and when we finally found Debra's place we knew it was the one.

If you want a New England-esque country wedding or simply a great spot to throw a party, this is the place. We had about 90 people, which seemed the perfect size, though more could have easily be accommodated. Our big top tent and all the tables fit perfectly on the lawn just off the gorgeous back patio. We even had live band with a dance floor all lit up underneath it. Nothing could have been more perfect!

The house amenities are all modern, updated and elegant. It has the feel of living in a cabin, but also luxurious. The kitchen is large and equipped for a professional chef. You can throw a great dinner party in there. The living room and bedrooms are all comfy and nice. You can definitely sleep as many as she says and house your entire family comfortably to keep the celebration going all weekend!

I wholeheartedly recommend Debra's place! Not only is it gorgeous, you will be well-taken care of throughout the planning process!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing Locke Falls Farm to celebrate your special day! It was the first wedding held at the property during my ownership and I think it really lends its self to endless possibilities for housing the wedding party, the actual wedding festivities as well as rehearsal dinner. You've inspired me to share the venue with others and it really has been my pleasure to assist both of you during this important event as you begin your life together.

Thanks again and best wishes,
Debra

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This property far exceeded our expectations. The house was lovely, there was plenty of room for our young adult children, and the surrounding gardens, fields, and trails were as beautiful as promised. We even enjoyed a chilly, rainy day by taking full advantage of the working fireplace, and the well-stocked video and game closet. Would love to return with our kids or a bunch of friends for a fall or winter weekend. It really is a perfect house and property for such a trip.

Owner's Response: A privilege to have the opportunity to share my home with a famity to relax and reconnect. I'm very familiar with the importance of keeping an adult family together for quality time and Wonalancet is a great location to do just that! Thanks for sharing your experiences. Local fall Agriculture fairs, Ski NH or cross country out the back door... I look forward to hosting your family and friends any time.

Best regards.

Mother of the Groom

  • 5 of 5
I strongly recommend this house for anyone looking to host a large extended family or group of friends. It is totally updated and comfortable with every kind of convenience you would need in a rental house. We were a group of 11 stretching over four different generations from my 86 year old mother to my 7 year old grandson and everyone was comfortable and enjoyed the venue. Just wish that we had more time to enjoy the trails and the falls and the outdoor activities in the area. Next time! I would definitely rent this property again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for being such a thoughtful guest and really appreciating the property. I do hope you will return for a vacation when you have time to just relax and soak in the sound of the rushing brook on its way to the falls and the serenity of Wonalancet.

Best regards,
Debra

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time at "Locke Falls Farm." The property was amazing, with rolling meadows and pastures, divided by split rail fencing and landscaped stone walls, and plenty of lovely floral gardens. There was a national forest which joined up to the yard, which was full of well maintained hiking trails, which followed pleasant brooks and a river.

The house was well cared for and had everything we needed and more. There was plenty of space, so much in fact that we hope to make a return future trip with some extended family!

The area was very nice, and we enjoyed spending a day at Mount Washington (just an hour drive away). We also visited the "Castle in the Clouds" (1/2 hour away) and the shops in North Conway (1/2 hour away). On the way home, we passed through a very quaint town called "Meredith," which was also a short drive, which sits right on a lake....that will be a destination next time we come!

Very nice rental, and highly recommended. We can only imaging how beautiful it is in the fall!

Debra, the owner, was a delight to work with as well, and was very welcoming. Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy your home!!

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Words really cannot describe the beauty and serenity we experienced at Locke Hills Farm. We arrived to the property early Friday afternoon and were greeted with a picturesque landscape. The Farm sits right on the edge of the White Mountain National Forrest and the view from the outdoor patio is breath taking. With the warm breeze it was a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and reflect on the day.
The house itself is huge, and it’s easy regardless of the amount of people you travel with to escape the crowd and get some peaceful alone time.
Debra, our host was more than accommodating. She left us a loaf of fresh, locally baked bread as well as a list of brochures with things to do in the area. She also, reached out to us via email in regards to a local Farmer s Market that would open during our stay. It was a great suggestion and a few of us did attend. I was able to buy some Coconut Run Fudge as well as meet and chat with some local New Hampshire farmers. Had we not brought so much food, the fresh produce would have been a great additive to our menu during our stay. The kitchen at the house was well equipped with anything you might need for cooking. The center island was ideal for placing snacks/appetizers and we spent a while congregating in the kitchen while cooking. The grill was also perfect for an afternoon BBQ!
With the property being so expansive we were excited to explore the grounds. In the pasture to the right there is a large boulder it was fun to climb onto the structure. It was a very conducive location to bask in the sun. One of my favorite parts of the farm was the trail head just behind the barn. We hiked for a few miles into woods crossing a number a small man made bridges along the way. The trail eventually leads to a beautiful path that follows the most majestic river completely immersed in the wilderness.
At night we played games and chatted by the fire pit in the back yard.
Over all, the experience at the farm was amazing. I heard not one complaint from any of the guests I travelled with except that they wished they could have stayed longer.
I knew it was a great success when a few of my guests, commented, “I can’t wait until the next time we come here!” With that being said, I highly recommend the property. It was one of the most fun weekends I have had this year! It is an excellent place to have a large group and entertain. In my opinion a perfect place to get married. =)
Thanks again Debra!
