We love living in North Sandwich! We are off the beaten path and generally visitors are seeking a specific location or just plain lost. Route 113 wanders around Squam Lake and through the town, becoming 113A in North Sandwich, on through Wonalancet to Tamworth Village, and is truly a beautiful drive in the fall ‘leaf peeping’ season or in the spring when the trees and shrubs are starting to ‘pop.’
We came to Sandwich because of the rural character of the town, its historic past, and the off-the-beaten path nature. Most of the 1300+/- year-round residents (with many more seasonal residents) came for the same reasons. When people ask what on earth you do in this little town they are quite surprised to discover the wealth of talent, industry, and activity located right here.
We are very proud to have our businesses in this community and encourage you when you visit the farm, to take time to enjoy our area. Spend a day to enjoy a production by Advice To The Players; to visit the Sandwich Home Industries, founding member of the League of NH Craftsmen; to browse through the Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery, specializing in contemporary art, or Surroundings Art Gallery, featuring original fine art in a variety of mediums; lose yourself at the Sandwich Historical Society museum looking through collections and pictures; and end the day with a delicious dinner at the Corner House Inn.
Wayside Farm & Great Northern Berries and the Dessert Table are both members of the Sandwich Business Group, 62 members strong! It is a mix of ‘storefront’ businesses, home-based businesses, service businesses, craftsmen, and organizations. Their website, Discover Sandwich, lists the individual businesses and on-going events in town.
And then of course there are all the trailheads, most of which lead to the National Forest. Click on the list below, choose one, then: stop by the farm, grab a box of scones or muffins, and go hike; come back and get some ice cream while you wander and consider which plants you need for your garden; and buy a bottle of wine and fresh-baked fruit pie to take home for dinner. Full service at its best!
