The kitchen under-cabinet lights turn on by waving your hand under the light closest to the stove. Control the light level by holding your hand under the same light.
SUMMER : On hot nights, turn on the attic fan on the second floor landing. There are also window fans. Use your own wood for the outdoor fire pit after using 6 pieces of our wood.
WINTER : The kitchen thermostat controls the kitchen and mudroom. The thermostat next to the study controls the rest of the first floor. The upstairs thermostat is on the second floor landing. Feel free to use the fireplace in the living room . It has a propane-fired log set. Instructions for its use are at the back of this manual. Do not use the fireplace in the study or the wood burning stove in the dining room. The insurance company forbids their use.

Spring Hill Farm is situated on 80 acres of rolling meadows and woods
The property includes three ponds (great for swimming) as well as Cooke Brook.
The patio outside the screened porch has a gas grill and wood burning fire pit overlooking the ponds.
The redwood sauna is in the shed beside the top pond.
Jake Burton Carpenter invented the snowboard on the workbench in the mudroom while he lived at the house as caretaker in the late 70’s. One of th original production boards is mounted above the workbench.
When you arrive, check the 2 switches on the left wall in the stairwell to the cellar. In the summer, turn on, if not already on, the boiler and the hot water with these switches. In the winter, turn on, if not already on, the hot water (the heat will already be on). When you leave, turn off what you turned on. In the cold season, never turn off the heat (as if you needed to be told this…).
The back door will be unlocked by Mimi before you arrive and the key will be on the kitchen counter. Check in time is 4:00pm and check out time is 11:00am, unless you make special arrangements with Mimi..
well provides abundant and drinkable water to the farm. However, the house uses a septic system, so please adopt “country ways” and use water sparingly. As Mimi says, “Water, so good you’ll want to bottle it and take it home!”
Looking outside the kitchen window, you’ll see a milkshed which has been converted into a great redwood sauna! The easy-to-use electric controls are located just inside the red door. It takes about 30 minutes to warm up. A switch for the patio floodlight is located just inside the porch door. Remember, saunas are dry, so do not use water to create a steambath!
Please, no glass containers anywhere near the ponds!! Broken glass in a pond is a disaster!!
The Londonderry Market, located in the Londonderry Shopping Center, is the nearest grocery store. To get there, turn
