How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

It might not feel like fall is particularly near, but in fact, we're just about a month away from peak foliage season in the Northeast. In the town of Amherst, New Hampshire, near the city of Nashua, the leaves are most resplendent around Columbus Day. The area also has a number of hiking trails, lakes, the Ponemah Bog Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Hodgman State Forest, and the Joe English Reservation, which features a number of wooded trails. 

If any of that sounds appealing to you, consider this four-bedroom, four-bath log house at 13 Ponemah Hill Rd., now on the market for $468,000. The house has a gorgeous, wood-paneled open living room with a vaulted ceiling and lots of light.

The wood beams and massive windows are an impressive touch here.

There's a massive stone fireplace and a wood stove, as well.

The main room has space for dining.

And the open-plan kitchen has a tile floor and stainless steel appliances.

There's a mudroom with laundry.

Here's one of the baths, with a big mirror.

The spacious master bedroom has a walk-in closet and access to a sunroom.

Two more bedrooms have built-in bookshelves and pine floors.

On the top level, there's loft space for an additional living room.

In the basement, there's space for an additional bedroom, though it appears the current owners are using the room as an office.

A chunk of the lower level is unfinished, though it could be used as an additional living room, den, or bedroom.

There's a spacious outdoor deck.

The detached garage can double as a workshop.

And there's lots of outdoor space between the two structures.

Amherst is about a four-and-a-half hour drive from New York City, and an hour's drive from Boston.
