WONDERFUL WINTER SCHOOL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
A magnificent house with a lot of space for children to play and romantic getaway for adults. We had a wonderful time, visited Littletown almost every day, we love it, while there, don't forget to visit Chutters (?) the World Guinness Candy store. We also celebrated my 50th birthday with my family, the best birthday ever. The house is equipped with everything that you possible need to have wonderful meals. Thank you Chris, we will do it again!!

A RELAXING VACATION WITH COSY LOG FIRES IN EVENING

  • 4 of 5
An impressive house with classical features secluded amongst the trees, plenty of space both inside and out for relaxing and the library provides a small den if the family get a little boisterous. The kitchen is well equipped and there is good dinner wear, placemats, etc. The lack of lighting in some of the bedrooms would be a drawback if the house is fully occupied and some bathrooms lack shelves for conveniently placing toiletries. Bathroom lights switch on/off by pull cords above the sink too high for children and small adults and you have to grope around in dark room to find cord.

In Lisbon park behind the Village Book Store on the lower floor of the store is the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen - top quality stuff, then upstairs to book store is good for local books and a coffee. South of Lisbon on the 302 the Bath General Store oldest general store in US. Turn left at bottom of Hodge Hill Road and visit Landaff village pure rural New Hampshire.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 4 of 5
Wow what a beautiful home! The house has a lot of space for a large group and a great outdoor space for playing soccer, hiking, or just relaxing. My children loved the pool table and tire swing. I was disappointed in the the stove. It is older, one of the burners is crooked and the oven cooks very uneven but it is functional. There was everything (pans, utensils, platters, etc.) you need in the kitchen to prepare a Thanksgiving feast. We noticed that maybe the owner needs to hire a new housekeeper who pays attention to detail like dusting or orginizing the shelves in the library. We didn't use any of the games at the home as the pieces were not in the boxes and were just shoved with the books and toys on the shelves. I was suprised to find it so disorganized. Also the fuseball table has a lot of missing pieces and had a broken leg. The bedrooms and bathrooms were set up nicely and had great linens. The view from the 3rd floor deck was amazing. We would definately vacation at the "Hampshire House" again. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us!

RURAL SPLENDOR

  • 5 of 5
The minute we set foot in this house we loved it. Its rustic elegance has the flavor of a French chateau deep in the green heart of New Hampshire. Tall windows look out on expansive, well-tended lawns bordered by forest. The furnishings are delightful and un-fussy, the kitchen well-equipped, the beds very comfortable. In the quiet of the night you may hear an occasional owl. Activities are not far away-- hiking in Franconia Notch, miniature golf in Lincoln, etc.- but the main attraction is hanging out at the house, relaxing, reading, playing croquet, pool, or horseshoes, or taking walks in the immediate area. Thanks to the helpful, amiable owner for sharing this beautiful and special place.

HOUSE HAS A LOT OF POTENTIAL BUT ...

  • 1 of 5
several things can be fixed... doors dont' close well (especially the bathroom doors).
What is worst is that when we arrived (reaching at around 10:00pm on Fri night) there was NO heat in the house... temp in the inside thermostats was 48F ..fortunately it wasn't sub-zero temp outside ..else we would have frozen.. We tried calling the owner ..but he was unreachable ..
We called the person in the local area he suggested we get in touch with for help in case he was unreachable ...only to find out that the guy had passed about a year ago!! ..OMG.... We were two families with 4 kids between us ...We bundled up and went to bed in the cold house the first night. The owner called us back in the morning ... He said the oil guys had come by just a couple of days earlier to fill the heating oil. What he speculated was that the tank had emptied out prior to that and the pilot flame had gone out... ..The heating guys came in around 10:30am that morning, relit the flame and phew we finally had some heat in the house......it was quite a harrowing experience though ...
The driveway in front of the house was icy when we reached .. looks like the ice had been sitting for a while .. entering and exiting was pretty dangerous...we skidded a few times.. almost hurting ourselves ...
Also ....when we opened one of the cabinet drawers .. we saw mice poop ... yikes!! .. the cleaning job hadn't been thorough .. the place has a lot of potential ..but unless the owner shows interest in maintaining it properly for the people renting the property ..not sure if we will ever go back and visit.

Owner's Response: Yes, the oil did run out prior to the recent fill so the heat was not working. I received a call very late at night. The issue was resolved immediately. For the few hours that they did not have heat, the house was never under 50 degrees. I emailed and called the tenants immediately. I also offered them a free night stay to extend their trip or for another time. Given the late call, willingness to compensate for the inconvenience and the responsible turn around, I think the review is unprofessional and unwarranted.

I have rented the home for many years. I have a professional cleaning lady who manages and cleans the house as if it were her own. In the seven years of ownership, i have never seen a mouse. We also procure a professional company for preventive maintenance. For seven years, we have used the same snow plower, who also sands the driveway when it is icy.

As a matter of business, I have always attempted to be a responsive and helpful landlord. Every renter to date, less the present one, has found the home to be a warm, special getaway.

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely wonderful holiday getaway in the White Mountains. While the photos could use a little updating for the outside of the home, the inside was just as we imagined it would be and the stay for the Thanksgiving holiday was excellent. Rustic wooden interior with plenty of furniture, little rooms to hide and read and views from all angles to surrounding mountains. With 13 people in the home and a big holiday meal to prepare went off without a hitch.

Plenty of firewood provided and we kept the fireplaces going all day long keeping the house nice and toasty.

Great big yard which was perfect after an 8 inch snowfall; providing small hills for sledding over the next 4 days. The rooms are spacious and bed are comfortable.

The kitchen is big and while one stove is never enough for our family and all the side dishes we cooked, we made do.

Cute picturesque downtown and not too far from a Wal-Mart 15 minutes in either direction for those last minute items.

only knock in this technology age is the cell or internet reception which was pretty tough at times; but being up in the mountains was a huge surprise. Just to get local news and weather it would have been nice to be able to get on-line more regularly; although being out of touch was nice for a quiet weekend away.

Overall, a perfect holiday trip. We would definitely come back!
