The hand-hewn beams, wooden floors and paneling of the 150-year-old main farmhouse create a cozy, informal atmosphere. The building has a sitting area; a large meeting/dining room; an ample foyer; full kitchen; four bathrooms; and sleeping accommodations for 20-25 people in seven bedrooms which sleep between two to four people.
The kitchen facilities are fully equipped for serving 60 people, with three refrigerators, a six-burner stove and oven, all necessary cooking hardware, and informal service for 75 guests. The dining room seats up to 60 people, and opens out to a large brick patio with picnic tables, an easterly view and the shade of a handsome maple tree.
Originally built in North Dartmouth, MA in 1849, the Quaker meetinghouse was recently moved and lovingly restored at Woolman Hill. The simple, peaceful space has its own bathroom as well as a small food preparation area.
The Red House, a charming cottage just across the lane from the main building, has an open kitchen and sitting area, a full bathroom, and two bedrooms that can house an additional five people.
Three rustic cabins provide 10-12 additional sleeping spaces, with two to five people per cabin. Each cabin has electricity, a woodstove, an outhouse, and a simple kitchenette.
