A very special destination halfway between the White Mountains and the Maine Coast
MESSAGE FROM ART AND SUE MELANSON: Oak Hill Farm came under our care during the summer of 1995. We have never considered that we "own" the 105 acres of vertical landscape in the foothills of the White Mountains, but rather that we have been entrusted with the care of the land and are bound to work with the gifts, energy and direction it has given us. And now, in 2021, twenty-five years later, it is time for new energy and vision to guide the direction of Oak Hill Farm. Samantha and Nathan will be that energy and they share our vision. They will continue High Acres Maple Syrup and The Cottages at Oak Hill Farm and will add new ideas and talents to the mix.
Exploring Oak Hill Farm
Oak Hill Farm spans 105-acres on the south face of Oak Hill. The 1300 ft. summit is a 45-minute hike from our doorstep. We keep a broad path mowed to the pond near the top. The final leg of the hike is steep and can feel like bushwhacking. The views from the summit are breath taking and well worth the climb. Visitors are also encouraged to cross the Troll Bridge to explore the 10-acre Birch Meadow sugarbush. Guests bring their own sleds during the winter to enjoy a rollicking ride down the lawn.
