Mother Daughter Weekend

Mother Daughter

Does your life feel like it is a blur of activity? Do you yearn for reconnection and reaffirmation with your Mom or your Daughter? Would you like to hit a pause button to enjoy some peaceful time together as you create new traditions before the whirlwind of holiday shopping and end of year demands? Would you love to spend some quality time on a festive and fun family farm? If so……………

We are ready to welcome you to Stepping Stones Farm & Retreat Center in Temple, NH.

Join us for a Mother-Daughter and/or Grandmother Holiday Weekend on December 9th to the 11th!!!!!

Let Boo Martin, her daughter Jamee and her granddaughter Megan take you to a simpler, old fashioned and fun filled weekend get-away. Enjoy the horses, play with the minis and goats, bake cookies, get a massage, enjoy the fresh air, swap traditions, do a little yoga together, get a facial, have a Mother Daughter Tea Party and dress up a little for pictures and a special dinner feast for all. Mostly, spend time together and enjoy delicious food and the fireplace burning brightly.

Boo, Jamee, Megan and the entire Stepping Stones Team are ready to welcome you to the lodge with all its seasonal finery. Sleep peacefully in comfy clean beds. Enjoy a glass of wine or hot cocoa by the Fire Circle. Delight in traveling back in time to a Currier & Ives farm to refresh and replenish before the Holidays hit!

Meet Your Retreat Team


Jamee is Boo’s daughter and has grown up at the farm.  She has been a part of Mother Daughter Holiday Weekends her whole life.  She is currently living in Vermont and is coming down to co-host this special weekend.  She loves the farm, the horses, games of all kinds and, best of all, crafts.  She has planned a delicious menu for us all, specializing in food that is great for “kids” of all ages!!!  She will be a highlight of the weekend between her good cheer, her hand in the kitchen and with menu planning, her creative projects and her Gnomes for decorations!

Boo Martin

Boo loves being both a Mom and a Grandmother.  Her kids are the highlight of her life.  She is especially looking forward to hosting this weekend with Jamee and Megan.  Her love of ‘Everything Family’, the farm, the farm team and its animals makes her ideally suited to co-host this weekend.  Let her bring her lifelong love of horses to you in her Cowgirl Magic Experience and enjoy learning about the lore and lure of this special, historic working horse farm.


Megan is Jamee’s daughter and she too is an old hand at the farm.  She has been to many summers of Pony Farm’s riding camp and shares the family’s love of farms and animals.  She is a real fitness buff as well as straight A student. Having worked in restaurants, she too is a good hand in the kitchen.  She is a wiz at games of all kinds and loves crafts galore.  She too is a Gnome devotee.
