Beautiful!

What a lovely walk around the property, overlooking the marshes and admiring the gorgeous foliage. It is serene, pristine, and very peaceful

This first period home is virtually intact and apart from some changes, it retains it original charm. Salt marsh hay was very important for early Colonials.

We visited Greenwood Farm on a warm (75 degrees) Columbus Day. The sky was bright blue and the marshes were golden. The fields were quiet. The parking area accommodates 4 or 5 cars. The trails are well kept. As you walk over a rise you suddenly get the distance view of the marsh, the river and the distant ocean. There... More

We must have walked through property at low tide because the only water we saw was a few marshes. There is a very nicely mowed trail to follow - very easy. The house is certainly evocative of old New England but you are not allowed inside. Very quiet, peaceful walk

Greenwood Farm is truly a throwback in time. Walking through the open fields with views of Marsh, River and Ocean must be exactly as it was 300 years ago. The farm house is sited in such a beautiful spot as you walk over the hill, it's as if you expect to see a team of horses pulling a plow through... More

Taking a walk to the Paine House (1694) at Greenwood Farm, is like taking a walk back in time. The trail to get there is beautiful and when you come upon the bright yellow clapboard house with white trim, one almost wants to go inside and enjoy a cup of tea. Upon reaching the house, the view of the marsh... More
