My extended family, including three children (age 3, 5, and 7) stayed here over a weekend for a family wedding. The big old house accomodated us well. If you want modern bells and whistles, this is not for you. But if you seek a classic New England experience, this wonderful old house and its numerous antiques will charm you. I must add that the book collection is admirable too! The kids were thrilled by the jungle gym in the garden. And we appreciated the kind gesture of fresh farm eggs left for us in the fridge on our arrival. Thanks for memorable weekend!
