My husband Sam and I are recently retired and are enjoying 'the good life' in the NH mountains. We moved up North from Boston, Massachusetts after 25 years of traveling up to the NH mountains on weekends. We love to travel in the US and internationallly. We enjoy sharing our experiences with our renters and learning about their unique experiences. We specialize in families with young children and international guests.

Birdy Ellsmore purchased this house in 1988

This house and 1.7 acres was our weekend vacation property for 25 years. We chose the property because of the spectacular view and our ability to personally work with the contractor on the exterior and interior features. We have many wonderful memories of weekend adventures with family and friends. This house is very special to us.

* Privacy for a romantic 'getaway' or family gatherings.

* Cleaned by owner to ensure the highest standards.

* Mountain views from the comfort of your own deck.

* Reasonable cost allowing luxury on a budget.

* House is full of books, games, toys, pac n play making packing easier.

A GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAY HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week at the house. It was clean and well presented. It had everything we needed for a perfect holiday in the mountains!

The kids loved the sandbox and all the outside toys. The basement with all the inside toys was great for those rainy days. The kids loved reading all the books and were very at home!

The proximity to Storyland was great - it meant a very short journey home for our two toddlers after 7 hours at the park.

This house has lots of space and is a big three-bedroom property. The views are stunning and the deck is perfect for relaxing on a hot day.

Birdy is very welcoming and was able to suggest some great ideas to help us make the most of our time in the area. We would definitely recommend this holiday home for families looking for a home away from home!

WONDERFUL HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The house and location come as advertised and then some. This was a great stay for everyone at a clean, organized, and comfortable house. The kids enjoyed the outside and all of the toys and the toy room. The adults loved the deck and the views and the openness of the living area.
Everything was there for us to enjoy a nice long week and not have to worry about anything. There were anywhere from 5 to 9 of us in our party at any given time, and there never was an issue of it feeling cramped.
The location was amazing. Right across the street is the Saco river with short rides (minutes) to downtown N. Conway, Attitash, and Storyland, among others (echo lake, Diana's Bath, Cathedral Ledge).

Will definitely be enjoying another stay at the Humphrey's Ledge Mountain House sometime in the future!

Birdy is quick to answer and help in anyway she can to make your stay more enjoyable. Thank you so much for letting us stay there Birdy!!

WE LOVED OUR STAY AT BIRDY AND SAM'S PLAYHOUSE!

We loved our stay at Birdy and Sam's playhouse!
  • 5 of 5
This is an awesome property, and we loved our week-long stay. The house was neat and clean, well maintained and very well decorated. The view is amazing. Birdy and Sam are very nice, and they were very responsive in their communication. We will definitely return.

Our kids called it the "Thai Tea" house because of its nice cedar color, and Birdy and Sam told us their nephew used to call it their playhouse. It's really a fun, relaxing place. Five stars! Thanks for sharing, Birdy and Sam!

PERFECT VACATION HOME FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
We found this to be the perfect home to rent! There were 7 of us and we all had plenty of space. The views are beautiful and we loved sitting out on the deck at any time of the day to enjoy them. The kids loved being able to go downstairs to play ping-pong - they had fun! We loved that when we were at the house we felt so far away from everything, yet we only had to drive about 7 minutes to get to North Conway, which was perfect! We are looking forward to our next stay there already! Thank you very much for everything, Birdy.

A GREAT TIME AT YOUR MOUNTAIN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had such an enjoyable time here in the mountains. We hated to leave and head for home. Everything at the house was great...clean, warm, homey and comfortable.....toys a big plus. Making the holiday even more special was seeing the large flock of turkeys in the yard and the Christmas train ride with Santa & Elves downtown. Loved having the off & on snow showers the last few days making it wintry in the mountains! We do hope we will be able to come back again. We would highly recommend this property!

PERFECT FOR A FAMILY WITH KIDS!!!!

  • 5 of 5
It's a wonderful location - so centrally located to all the fun. The kids had a great time running around the minute we got there. The ping pong table and sand box were big hits. Even though we went to great places like Storyland, Santa's Village, Echo Lake and summit of Mt Washington, the kids always smiled when we said "It's time to go back home to the vacation house". The house was in great condition, very clean and well maintained. I would recommend this property and owner to everyone. A++++++ experience!!!!!!!
