A Bit of Local Color...

Elijah Haven Homeplace was a gift from Elijah's parents, Jonas and Nancy Haven, who settled the 300 acres next door just after the Revolutionary War. One of their daughters, Anna Dawn, was found on the doorstep at sunrise one morning in the mid-1800s and the family adopted her.

In 1990, we purchased the farm from the Havens (the first time it had been out of their family in over 160 years) and completely updated it, created the lawns & gardens and cleared the fields – leaving the charm intact. Not coincidentally, one of the prominent rose species in our garden is "Anna Dawn".

It's always a work in progress, as old homes are...and our guests say they love it. Check out our Testimonials on the right of each page on our website. There's no place like a home away from home. Please contact us with your questions at 978.827.3141 or click here.

Guest Compliments

"My husband and I came to Haven for our 20th anniversary from North Carolina. It was the perfect getaway! I felt like we had escaped to Winnie the Pooh's 100 Acre Wood! It feels like you have gone back to a quieter, peaceful time. The property is beautiful - a treat awaits out every window. The house is so comfortable and perfectly decorated. The loft over the kitchen with its day sofa and all the windows was my favorite spot to curl up and read and relax. Yet, it is the perfect spot for taking off and enjoying Mt. Wachusett or other spots in the area."

"This circa 1830s farmhouse, actually a beautifully renovated cottage, located at the center of almost 100 acres of forests and meadows, is perfect for us. It is immaculate and beautifully appointed with both comfortable and handsome furniture. The hosts are wonderful, engaging, helpful and friendly. Everything we needed to spend the week was in place and available. Turkeys wander through the meadows; woodchucks scurry to find their burrows; stories of deer and coyote. We watched them from the many windowed kitchen and dining area.

The landscaping reflects care and a stylish flair. The many beautiful stone walls that outline the driveway and meadows are a reminder of New England's and this house's past.

An added benefit, if you love Robert Frost's poetry, you see them everywhere: birch trees, not yet bent; walls that make good neighbors; tufts of flowers. We would love to spend time here at other times of the year: fall with the magnificence of maple colors; seeing winter's white. We shall return time and time again."

"...so delighted to stay at Haven Homeplace, an old New England farm cottage in a peaceful setting, surrounded by green fields, birds in tall trees and old rock walls. Inside there is a clean bright kitchen and a view from the large dining table, and a spacious living room...thoughtful touches like outdoor dining on the deck, cozy reading places, electronic security, comfortable beds and a modern bathroom. I enjoyed every minute..."
