Longlook Farm has been in Colm’s family for three generations. It was originally an agricultural farm dating back to the 1800’s and was primarily a sheep farm. If you walk our vast 200 acre property, you will see many “stone wall lanes” created many years ago by ambitious farmers who needed passage for their livestock to travel to and from the fields and pastures.
Colm’s grandmother, a physician and resident of Massachusetts, purchased Longlook Farm in the early 1950’s and used it primarily as a summer residence. The original house was a Cape that sits on the same footprint as our current Lodge. The Lodge is a traditional Maine Log home that was built in 1965. At that time, Colm’s grandmother made the move to NH permanently and opened her own medical practice in the bottom floor of the Lodge. She was a very well respected country doctor who took great care in her work. Colm took on the role of caregiver for his grandmother in her later years and she passed away at almost 101 years of age in 2009. She was a truly remarkable woman both in spirit and accomplishment.
Beyond a few cosmetic updates, the authentic feel of the Lodge offers you a feeling of days gone by. Soaring cathedral ceilings, massive pine beams warm pine walls and ceilings and a stately granite fireplace beckon you to enjoy the lodge’s comfortable accommodations. Featuring six bedrooms, three full baths and two kitchen areas, you will take great pleasure in your time spent in such a well maintained and appointed home.
The Barn sits on the same footprint as the original three story, nineteenth century barn that collapsed in the late 1950’s. You can still see the stone foundation of the barn – it must have been a site to see! The current Barn was built in 1965 and housed many different varieties of livestock over the years. It has been reimagined to function as a wedding venue and exudes warmth and charm with it’s rustic character. From it’s weather worn pine walls, to its custom stained tobacco concrete floor, its warm and handsome chandeliers and wall sconces, our Barn radiates a captivating presence for all to appreciate.
Formerly the carriage house on the property, our Bar has been re-fashioned to function as a handsome gathering spot. Featuring rich pine walls, a rustic twig chandelier and a vintage clawfoot tub to hold all your favorite beverages, this is by far everyone’s favorite watering hole. The doors fold back to expose the most lovely pastoral views of the pastures, mountains and beyond.
