Historical Traveler Reviews Farm by the River Bed and Breakfast with Stables North Conway
Wonderful ski trip
My 10 year old son and I just returned from a two night stay in North Conway, at the Farm by the River. He was most sad to leave Lucy, the family dog. Rick offered to take some photos of my son with Lucy, since we forgot our camera. Our room was cozy, and Alexander enjoyed the independance to make him self tea or hot chocolate in the evening. He also had fun meeting other children staying at the Inn. The location was very convenient, as we skiied at Attitash. Their location is great for avoiding the traffic entering/travelling through NConway Village. We enjoyed our stay very much.
A Wonderful Place
This is a wonderful, friendly place with a picturesque location on the Saco River. While located within 10 minutes of the shops and outlets of North Conway it is a peaceful place where you can forget the bustle entirely.
The house itself is a classic New England farm house with a big inviting fireplace in the parlor, and comfortable rooms upstairs, some of which even have hot tubs and gas fireplaces. Behind the house is a commercial stable where you can arrange horseback, carriage or sleigh rides. The hosts, Rick and Charlene, have always made us feel at home and almost part of the family.
My wife and I have stayed there several times including a family reunion. Once I arranged a moonlight sleigh ride along the river (which included complementary Champaign) with my wife to celebrate her birthday..
Better than being Home
I go there every year......someday I expect a room named for me. The rooms are wonderful, the hospitality super ! I cannot imagine more gracious hosts than Rick and Charlene. So, maybe there isn't a television in every room. This gives everyone staying there an opportunity to mingle and share there lives with other guests - in front of the fire, on the deck sharing breakfast, in the garden
A great experience!
A beautiful place! We went as a family reunion, which meant we got to wander each other's rooms. All were lovely! The owners were very friendly and helpful. I couldn't be happier with the experience!
We found this place on the internet. Rick & Charlene were the best. There was always beverages & snacks available. We spent 2 nights and the room was immaculate. In fact, we got a complete tour of the house and all the rooms were in perfect clean condition. The house is very old & historic which is one of the most endearing things about it. The wonderful hosts know everything about the area and are happy to suggest ideas for eating, recreation, anything. Breakfasts were wonderful. Pancakes,fresh fruit, hommade muffins, waffles, & eggs cooked to order. And Rick makes a special trip out to town every morning for a newspaper for you to read. Spectacular views. We didn't get to ride the horses, but that was because of all the ice, and we will be ging back to ride someday. This is the perfect place to get away from it all. I loved waking up to the views in the morning. We were very happy there & sorry to leave. We made new friends in the gracious host & hostess and will be returning. Our Valentines Day was most magical because of this wonderful place. This is a very down to earth place, maybe not for you if you are high maintenance. Its rustic, and perfect if you like to leave the hustle & bustle of life. It will definatly take you back to a simpler time.
A truly memorable family weekend...
It has been nearly a month since we stayed; and my wife and I still speak of what a truly great weekend we had there. We stayed in the family suite on the first floor and it was perfectly suited to our family of 5. The Master Bedroom was delightful with a comfy king size bed; and a fireplace, and then the adjoining room had an individual bed for each of the kids.
Our kids loved spending a weekend on a horse farm; and the added benefit of getting to ride the Polar Express is a memory we will all have forever.
We found the inn keepers and their staff to go out of their way to make us feel comfortable; and their house was decorated beautifully for the season.
We recently stayed at the Farm by the River and we couldn't have been more disappointed! It started with the directions that they post on their website...they were incorrect and we spent an hour trying to find the place. When we arrived, we were nothing but an annoyance...unloading the inn-keeper's car came before checking us in. The house was extremely cluttered with old furniture and knick knacks. The rooms were not dirty, but so poorly maintained that it was difficult to get comfortable. We wanted to leave immediately, but at $200+ per night, it seemed like too much money to throw away. The food was unremarkable. The grounds were as poorly maintained as the house. The "hospitality" was surly at best. We have stayed at several BnB's and this was far and away the worst experience we have had.
We were married at The Farm by the River, 25 September 2004. Rich and Charlene (owners) were very accomadating to everyone. They assisted me in setting all the things needed to have an out of state wedding there. From the photographers to the arranged day at the Spa for my wife and daughter, to the horse drawn carraige. It was a fabulous occasion. Rich and Charlene are credited with going the extra mile to assure that everything went off with a stress free wedding. Thank you Rich and Charlene for your hospitality and new found friendship. We look forward to coming back to see you in the future. Sincerely, Mark, Jaime, Travis and Megan
My husband and I honeymooned here, and loved the close proximity to the town of North Conway. The owners were delightful, and the property offered numerous opportunities for exploration. While I agree that the Inn is too cluttered with old magazines and outdated accessories, the kindness of the staff and their eagerness to please outweighs the downside. The view of the surrounding White Mountians is spectacular.
Breakfast was prompt and satisfying. Gas fireplaces in the rooms are great for chilly nights. Go to the Met coffeehouse for the best cheesecake ever with blueberries on top in town! : )
We stayed here recently and felt that the Inn was quite cluttered and dusty in the rooms. The break-fast was very limited and there was nothing to eat when we came back after being out all day,such as hot soup or snacks. The candles in the windows didn't work and it didn't look like the post card at all. I felt it was very expensive for what we got. Would not stay there again. Never got the hat ride either that they advertise.

... with the group at Cold Hollow Cider Mill. Had a nice lunch there and checked out the shop. Then we headed a few miles away to Ben and Jerry's!
The tour of Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory near Burlington, VT was fantastic. Very informative; we got to see a lot of great marketing and business ideas from a company that's been doing things right for over 40 years. The business teacher in me got a lot out of it ...
... one car at a time. This made for some nerve testing moments, especially since this is the only road up/down the mountain!
Imagine two cars passing with a fraction of an inch between their side mirrors and a steep drop down with no barrier at the edge of the road! But don't let that scare you!
If you get the chance to take the road to the top by all means do it! The views are breath-taking and will afford everyone a zen-like experience.
Once at the top, ...
... the way up, we started to notice small patches of snow and ice that remained on the ground. Being late April and actually fairly warm, we were a bit surprised but pleased at the novelty - to the extent that we took a photo of Nay holding a chunk of icy snow. This seemed pretty funny on our way back down, since by the top of the trail we were walking on thick snow and feeling grateful for the layers of clothing we’d worn. It took an hour to reach the top and it ...
... to my mouth". Still blank. After all that she informs me they've sold out of beanies as it's been a long winter.
The drive to North Conway in the White Mountains continued and we arrived in enough time to explore the surrounding countryside. It's a snow skiing region with slopes everywhere. Sioux had heard of a place called Jackson about 15 miles away so off we went. I started to sing the song 'I'm Going Down to Jackson' but the words came out to the tune ...
... were all over the rocks, flying from rock to rock, and flying and landing all over me. When they flew right into my face, I had to swat them off. When I was placing my hands and feet, I'd have to swipe them off the rock because I didn't want to squish them. Thank goodness they were soo darn cute, I didn't care whether they were on me. If they were roaches, I think I'd've peed myself!
After climbing Fun House, we drove to Plymouth, NH. Let the climbing continue!!!!
