Little Red Farmhouse

Country accomodations by the day or week

Exterior 1Welcome to the Little Red Farmhouse—charming, country accommodations in an 1840’s New England farmhouse in historic Brentwood, N.H.  The house sits at the bend in North Road, nestled under the oldest tree in the town and offers guests  The Country Suite, a private suite on two floors with  generous living room, kitchenette, one or two bedrooms  (sleeps 1-4) and private bath. 

Just minutes from  Phillips Exeter Academy (7.5 miles) and the Rockingham County Nursing Home ( 1.5 miles), Little Red Farmhouse offers visitors the best of New Hampshire country living for short or medium-term stays.  Discounts available for stays longer than 5 nights.

Exterior 2Hospitality is provided by Audrey Porter, Innkeeper, and her sidekick Lucy, the resident Cairn terrier.  The house itself is a Greek Revival gem lovingly restored by Audrey with a cosmopolitan and eclectic touch. Besides being filled with period antiques and fine oriental carpets, every room offers picture-perfect country views in all directions.

The house sits on a 2 acre expanse of glorious plant­ings and rolling lawns leading down to a pond, all overlooked by the “Farmers’ porch” (so called because it attaches to the outbuildings rather than the main house). Here guests are invited to spend time watching the extraordinary bird life, the community gardens established by Audrey a few years back, or just sipping a cup of tea.  The view down to the pond and towering firs in the distance is special. 

Living RoomThe Country Suite (five rooms approx. 900 sq. ft.) includes a Private living room  charmingly appointed New England-style with antiques and Oriental rugs (and rocking chairs and cable television). A private stair leads to the second floor’s King bedroom with pond views and separate dressing area. This generous bedroom is furnished with Sheraton dressers, a fine Persian rug, a Regency-period French mirror, as well as comfortable side chairs and a television.

Blue Room 1The Blue room can accommodate another guest or two. It’s double bed, oversized wingchair and dresser leave just enough room for a suitcase or two on the fine Oriental carpet that feels like wall-to-wall. There are good views to the horse farm across the street. The blue in this room has been the topic of much con­versation - either you love it or you don’t. Come see!

Bathroom 1Audrey recently renovated the “Country-views bathroom” to get a big window in with great perspective out to the back meadow and pond. (Don’t worry there are curtains!)  There are wide pine floors, a generous antique pedestal sink and the original claw-foot tub of the house.  Hair dryer and lots of toiletries available as you need including soap, shampoo, tooth paste, etc.


KitchenetteThe tea kitchen or breakfast room is adjacent to the blue bedroom and suggests a little country tavern with a drop-leaf table, Windsor chairs, a copper repousse sink and enough counter space and appliances to make a light meal. There’s a toaster oven, microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker and charming table ware for your breakfast-in. For convenience, it is stocked with gourmet coffee, tea, and basic supplies for continental breakfast. The kitchen table can also serve as a work­space with the wireless internet connection.

HallwayFor those who like to eat out, Bessie’s Diner is 1.5 miles down the road, the local center for gossip and home-cooking and Starbucks is just a mile the other way.

Little Red Farmhouse offers the privacy, beauty and personal touch of a country home where no detail has been overlooked - from quaint architectural details to the period furnishings and sumptuous plantings.
