About Chris Garcia

We are Mike and Chris Garcia, and we live in Central Mass. Like many, through vacationing in the area, we grew to love The Mount Washington area and all that it has to offer in every season. We particularly have always loved Jackson: It is perfectly located for just about anything you are looking to do and it has remained quaint and charming: We have enjoyed renting our home, which we call 'Jackson' for 9 years. it has been and will continue to be our goal to offer a thoroughly relaxing and stress free vacation to all our guests. We strive to make each experience a positive one and through years of experience, we feel that we can anticipate the needs of all vacationers. So, whether you are a couple looking for a winter weekend getaway, a group of woman looking for a couple of nights of fun or a family looking to book your summer vacation, we are confident that you would be thoroughly pleased with this accommodation. We hope you give us a look.

Chris Garcia purchased this house in 2004

Why Chris Garcia chose Jackson

The property is one of those properties that goes on the market and does not stay. it was built in 1891 as a Summer home: It is featured in the book: Summer Cottages of New England. You just don't come across properties like this very often and we felt that we didn't want the opportunity to slip by... so, we took a chance and because of so many great people who have enjoyed staying here for the past 9 years, we are able to maintain it so that it continues to be a place to be enjoyed. Mike and I maintain and clean the property ourselves so that we know that you are arriving to a clean, cozy place that is ready for you to enjoy from the first minute. We supply toiletries, towels and make up the beds with luxury linens. We are available by phone at all times: very accessible for any unique needs that may come up.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits are the ideal location to Jackson Falls, 3 major golf courses, Storyland ,5 ski mountains and we are in the midst of the well known and meticulously groomed Jackson cross country ski trails. We are 15 minutes to North Conway which has many great Valley Original restaurants and all the shopping you could ask for. If staying in the village of Jackson is your preference, there are plenty of great places to eat in Jackson as well. Unique to the home itself is beauty in it's history and authenticity of the architecture.

The pictures do not do this house justice. My friends and I stayed here for a weekend at the end of October, and it was absolutely beautiful! The house is wonderfully inviting and the owners make you feel right at home, with every detail covered. The house was very clean, extremely comfortable, fully modernized, and the scenery of the fall foliage was magnificent. The town of Jackson is truly charming, and theres a lot more to do if youre willing to drvie a bit ( the house is equipped with a lot of pamphlets of what to do in the area). The only problem we had was our GPS. Dont listen to it- it'll take you to the wrong house- follow the directions that the owners provide. Overall, this house is amazing and the owners are so nice. I would definitly stay here again- it's like staying with family.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks during a beautiful, snowy, cold stretch this past winter. House is so very charming, clean, cozy (especially the sitting room with the gas fireplace), set up on a hill. Plenty of room for the kids when they came to visit, everyone loved the gorgeous mountain views from the hot tub at the end of a long day skiing. Location can't be beat, owners were wonderful to deal with. Now we want to go back in the summertime!

We just spent 3 nights at this home and enjoyed every minute of it. The pictures match the house perfectly, clean, comfortable, and the owners were very helpful in all regards before our stay during Fall foliage and while we were there. The house is located in a cute town with lots of activities nearby that we enjoyed. I would certainly recommend this home as a rental for all the reasons above.

Owner's Response: We are always so grateful when guests take the time out of a busy day to write a review. We had the rare and enjoyable opportunity to meet our guests on this occasion: something we don't ordinarily get to do.. It is great to have folks from other parts of the country visit and experience the beauty of The White Mountains. It is always our goal to provide our guests with a most positive experience.

A wonderful surprize

My wife and I decided to take our daughters family away to NH for Thanksgiving. I had spent much of my teen years in Bartlett and I wanted my grandchildren to experience the Mt Washington Valley.

We for Chris's Jackson Property on Homeaway and rented it online. It was our first time renting in this manner.

Well the property could not have been nicer or cleaner. The location was out of a storybook. Chris and her husband were just wonderful to deal with. We have vacationed in many places and this was one of our best. We hope to rent again.

Our family stayed here over the MLK weekend to enjoy some winter fun but the house was so cozy and inviting that we spent more time inside than out. Such a beautiful house and furnished with everything you could need. The owners were accessible and accommodating making this a very positive experience. We would recommend this home to anyone!

Great house and location for Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a lovely New Years vacation here. The location couldn't be better -within walking distance of the village and a quick drive to many ski locations. The house is cozy and has every amenity you need. The hot tub was a great bonus to ease muscles after a days skiing. Owners were great to deal with too ! :)
