Harmony Mountain Abode 谐山居

Bed & Breakfast

Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

(603) 846-2104

 

Harmony Mountain Abode is located in the pristine village of Twin Mountain and surrounded by the Presidential Range and Franconia Range of mountains in New Hampshire’s famous White Mountains.

In the early 1800s early pioneers ventured out here.  In 1832, one family built the house that is now the Abode.  While the colonial house must have supported a big family, it was in the 1950s, the house became a cottage providing bed and food to guests visiting the White Mountains.  Major renovations were done to the house at the turn of the new millennium. Within the framework of the historical house, a bed and breakfast inn was developed with a European theme of a neat and tidy farmhouse.  In 2007, this house became Harmony Mountain Abode, a bed and breakfast inn with its European flavor kept while adding an Asian atmosphere.

The Abode has 7 rooms.  They include two suites: Luzern and Matterhorn, and five units: Appenzell, Heidi’s, Lake of Geneva, Inter Laken, and Ticino.  Each is equipped with its own bathroom and each carries its own colors and unique features.  Intending to cater to various situations, the hosts have placed four units/suites with a queen size bed, two units have a full size bed, while one unit has two extra long twin beds.  The Abode provides high quality individually-bottled shampoo and hair conditioner, personal-size soap, and plush towels.  Each of the two suites has its own living room and its own kitchenette.

Guests not only have their own clean and comfortable rooms, but also can relax, read, or socialize in the public areas at the Abode. The common room has cozy and comfortable chairs, a library corner, a kitchenette with a fridge and a sink, cabinets containing coffee/tea and snacks, a tea table, and a computer desk.  Here, guests can enjoy afternoon tea offered by their hosts.  Mount Washington comes into the Abode through the French doors and the big windows in the common room.

Be Sure to Check out the Photos Below!

The Abode has a front porch of 280 square feet (26 square meters).  Four huge windows frame almost an entire wall of the porch.  The Franconia Range with Mount Lafayette as its peak is pictured in the four big windows. These pictures change colors with the seasons.  Guests can sit in the rocking chairs and admire the natural scenery on the porch.  The front porch is heated in the Winter while it is soaked in natural sunlight most of the Winter day.

There is a deck of 192 square feet (17.8 square meters) outside the Abode.  Sitting on the lounge chairs under a sun umbrella, you have a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountains.  In the morning, you can watch the sun rise above Mount Washington.  In the fall, amazing colors on the mountains come into your eyes.

The Abode has a formal dining room with a wood-burning fireplace.  In the dining room, the hosts serve warm and nutritious breakfast to their guests. While breakfast mostly features European-American items such as bacon, omelet, juices, and pancakes. It also contains occasional additions of Asian items such as scallion pancakes, tea eggs, or stir-fried noodles.  The Abode also offers optional dinner to her guests.  The dinner is cooked and presented in pure, authentic Chinese style.  Guests who have had dinner at the Abode all said that the option for dinner was wise.  One married couple wrote in the guest book that “our special supper was remarkable - you have spoiled us for restaurant food.” 

The Abode is connected to the world with wireless internet and through cable TV in all the rooms.

Situated in such a privileged location, guests at the Abode have easy access to all the natural attractions offered by the White Mountains: Skiing at the nearby Bretton Woods and Canaan Mountain resorts, bicycling on the specially reserved bicycle route, fishing and swimming in nearby rivers, lakes, and ponds, visiting wildlife refuges, hiking the various trails to amazing waterfalls and cascades, going on maple sugaring or moose watching tours, hunting for antiques, shopping at outlets, experiencing Christmas wonders, choosing and cutting a Christmas tree…

The hosts of the Abode are Americans of Chinese origin.  They strive to make the Abode a place where guests can experience naturally beautiful surroundings, multi-cultural atmosphere, sincere hospitality, healthy food, and an overall harmonious environment.  Joe, the husband, runs the Abode and cooks most of the food.  He is an engineer by training.  Before they got into the B&B business, their friends, who dined at their house, all urged Joe to open a restaurant simply because they loved everything he cooked. Instead of running a restaurant, they got into the B&B business because Joe is also a creative and handy man and loves people.  He now fixes and maintains the big house with pretty carpentry and craft work.  He writes beautiful calligraphy in Chinese and English and has made wood carvings of personal names and plaques of special wishes for friends and guests. Shehong, the wife, is a history professor teaching at a university in Massachusetts.  She comes to the Abode over weekends, holidays, and her Winter and Summer vacations to help Joe and to meet their guests.
