About Birdy Ellsmore

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 apartment in 2007

Why Birdy Ellsmore chose Bartlett

The house adjacent to the garage/apartment complex and the 1.7 acres was our weekend vacation property for 25 years. When we moved into the property 5 years ago, we built the large garage and second floor apartment and deck. We personally worked with the contractor on every aspect of the exterior and interior features. We hoped one day to have a place out west, but keep the apartment as our New England 'get a way'. It is very special to us and that is reflected in the lighting and contemporary beauty of this apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

* Privacy for a romantic 'getaway'.

* Cleaned by owner to ensure the highest standards.

* Modern appliances in the laundry and kitchen.

* Mountain views from the comfort of your own deck.

* Reasonable cost allowing luxury on a budget.

* Families with young children can cook and do laundry at a price they can afford.

Our wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This week we spent at Humphreys Ledge apt was such a peaceful, relaxing week. The description was completely accurate it had everything to make your stay comfortable and homey. We were able to cook in the kitchen with good utensils, spices, and little touches like
a tea maker, coffee maker, basically everything that you would have in your own kitchen. The property was very well maintained and immaculate. There is beautiful views surrounding you, it was great just to walk out on the deck everymorning and have coffee, and take it all in. And downtown north conway has the train rides, and lots of shops and some nice restaurants and also we even found an arcade fairly close for rainy days. But Birdy was very accomadating and made sure our son had videos and games to play if we were staying in. So all in all I would definetly recommend this to anyone. And look forward to coming back again for sure. Thanks Birdy & Sam for making our vacation so nice. James & Denise

Wonderful week in the White Mountains

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is superb. On arrival it reminded us of a stylish Boutique hotel. Everything we needed was there, and all of the highest quality. The location is wonderful, surrounded by the woods, and with magnificent views. The surrounding mountain area is wonderfull for walking/hiking, or just more leisurly site seeing. North Conway has some excellent outlet shops, plus plenty of quirky local shops. Birdy and Sam were very hospitable and anxious to please.
In 40 years of renting holiday homes worldwide this is the best.
A big thank you to Birdy and Sam.

Heaven in New hampshire

  • 5 of 5
Humphrey's Ledge is a fantastic apartment... we stayed there a week and never regretted a moment. The location is beautiful and the surrounding area is really spectacular. The apartment has one large bedroom with further sleeping in the lounge. The bathroom is huge and has a storage area off it. The kitchen is ideal and we used it every day along with the diner/lounge.
On our arrival we were greeted by a cheeky red squirrel that we saw regularly over our stay and chipmunks could always be seen playing outside.
North Conway is close by with all the shopping you could need. And there are places to visit throughout the area. A lot of them open after (or on) memorial day... but even that did not detract from our enjoyment of the apartment and the area.

Beautiful Humphrey's Ledge Apartment

Beautiful Humphrey's Ledge Apartment
  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I first went to Humphrey's Ledge Apartment in June 2008. After a beautiful stay and a great time, we were set on staying at the apartment again before the end of the year. It's in a perfect location, about 3 to 5 miles from The center of North Conway, delicious restaurants close by, amazing scenery, and a comfortably perfect place to stay. We went back up in October 2008 sinceHumphrey's Ledge Apartment was one of our favorite places, and we'll always remember this as "our spot". That weekend my boyfriend asked the big question, and I said "YES!" We plan on staying sometime soon in 2009.
