We recently stayed at this home in mid October. It was beyond anything we had imagined it to be, beautiful, spacious yet cozy at the same time. And it was immaculate, felt like a new home. We brought along some toys for the kids but it wasn't necessary since there were plenty of toys, games, books, and videos for the kids to choose from. There was also a kayak that we were able to use down at the lake. The location of this house on a quiet mountain road gave us enough privacy yet we didn't feel completely isolated since there are a few other homes in the area. Whether you'd like to visit Portland or the coastal areas of Maine or if you'd like to visit any of New Hampshires famous tourist attractions, which we did, they are all an easy, scenic drive away, so it was a great base for our day trips and great to come home to relax after a full day of fun. The homeowner and property manager were both friendly and eager to make sure that we had everything we needed in order to enjoy our stay, so thank you Lance and Raina! Now that I'm back home I truly miss sitting on the back deck with a coffee, smelling the crisp mountain air, and watching the sunrise over Mt. Washington and the breathtaking White Mountain range. We hope we can return one day and experience all that again!
