Welcome to The Preserve at Chocorua; a picturesque White Mountain estate tucked away in the historic town of Tamworth, New Hampshire. The Preserve is a unique property that lends itself to taking it easy, letting time slowly drift by as you reflect on the nostalgia of days gone by. The Preserve was among the earliest farms to open its doors and was known as "Hayford's in the Fields" in the 1890's. It is our intent to extend a warm welcome to all those who choose to host their event with us. We hope you enjoy this exquisite property and form everlasting memories as you celebrate your joyous occasion.
Although our historical past runs deep, we have committed to improving our future by promoting green and sustainable events that produce the smallest carbon footprint as possible. Please take a look at all this wonderful estate has to offer.
26 Acres of untouched natural beauty. Each season with its own unique character.
