We are a senior couple working to rehab our historic home in the quintessential New England town of Sutton Mills, NH. While we are pretty active help is needed as our home was neglected for many years. We have a great guest bedroom where the sound of our stream is heard. Two friendly dogs and a cat also live here. We have traveled quite a bit but do not really speak any other languages other than English. Plenty of good organic food. 20-30 minutes to cultural centers and to Dartmouth College. Pretty laid back and very appreciative of help. Oh and stacking wood for winter. Help is always appreciated with that.
Improving your English is for sure here as we are avid readers and, well with politics the way it is there is always something to talk about. You will also experience a piece of America that probably doesn't exist outside of New Hampshire or Vermont anymore. Where ballots are still hand counted. Artists and writers live alongside farmers and carpenters. Plenty of hiking trails, skiing nearby, or just experience the quiet that so many places no longer have.
An old house, 1860, like ours needs a fair amount of caring. Gardening help is needed. Painting as well. Help organizing our barn would be great! Also we are always eager to learn different cultures and maybe some language, hopefully.
A private guest bedroom with a great comfy bed. And the rest of our house to share.
As to time off, Concord, the State Capital is about 25 minutes away. Plenty to see and do there along with some very good restaurants and bars. Hanover, the home to Dartmouth college is about 30 minutes. Usually something cultural going on. As well as good places to eat and drink. Outdoor sports year round. Swimming, skiing, hiking, camping, etc..
