Plenty of parking and (2) car garage.

Access to peak foliage season attractions such as Flume Gorge, the Basin, Old Man and major ski resorts, such as Waterville Valley ( 12miles), Loon Mtn( 14miles), Cannon Mtn, Tenney Mtn. Also just a short drive from beautiful Squam Lake a.k.a. Golden Pond. Located off Waterville Valley exit 28 from I-93.

White Mountain Skiing: Waterville Valley (12 miles); Loon Mountain (14 miles); Tenney Mountain (17 miles); Cannon Mountain (~25 miles)

Foliage Season: House is well within the White Mountain Region and surrounded by forest. White Mountain National Forest entrance in Waterville Valley is only 10 miles away by road, with numerous hiking trails. The Basin and Flume Gorge make nice spots for autumn rambles. Just a short drive north is the Kancamagus Highway, where you'll find the most impressive foliage drive in New England, if not the world. Leaf peepers drive extremely slow because they can barely look at the road!

POOR MAINTENANCE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE

  • 1 of 5
Arrived at the property and soon realized that there was an unpleasant odor coming from the upstairs bathroom. We turned the bathroom fan on with the hope that the odor will eventually go away, which it did not over the course of the next 3 days (it was also noticeable in one of the bedrooms). We have stayed at the same house a few years back and this time we realized that there were no improvements since that time. Also if you care about internet connection the quality of the connection in this house is extremely poor. After our stay we requested the security deposit back which the owner was already late in returning. The return was partial and he claimed that he did repair work at the upstairs bathroom for damages that we caused which was definitely not the case. In conclusion we will not be returning to this property any time soon.

GORGEOUS AND SPACIOUS WINTER 2011

  • 4 of 5
My family stayed at this wonderful home for xmas week 2011 (the review doesn't allow us to say a date that far in the past). Very Nice home with all the comforts of our own. Large Hill can be difficult to get up in ice/snow weather...but well worth the views. Would recommend staying again.

NEW YEAR'S 2011

New Year's 2011
  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I, as well as 3 other couples spent 3 nights including New Year's eve in this wonderful home! We had seen the pictures and they looked great, but did not do the home justice! When we arrived and drove up the driveway we loved that the home was secluded and the views were amazing! From the moment we arrived we did not want to leave. They have everything you would need, from pots & pans to movies & games. They have washer & dryer in the basement. We brought our Wii and the tv was in a perfect place to play. The fireplace was awesome as well! I really couldn't think of one thing to complain about. The first night we got there we realized on 2 occasions that we had forgot things we needed for diner so we took a short ride to the local convenient store which was maybe 4 miles down the road, and when I tell you, they have everything!! Food, beer, snacks, movie rentals, etc.! We skied Waterville Valley on New Years eve day, which was very crowded. I would say if you do plan to ski look into one of the other mountains nearby. Saturday we all went to lunch at the Woodstock Brewery which was less than 9 miles from the house. Enjoyed some samplers and yummy cheeseburgers! The owner Jon, was very helpful and promptly returned any emails or calls. I don't know if he built this house or had it built, but either way whoever built it did a fantastic job! Hopefully we will have a chance to come back in the near future!

Owner's Response: Dear guests, I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay.

T'is true that Waterville can be busy on weekends, but has a beautiful setup for family skiing. I can add that Loon Mountain in Lincoln is another excellent alternative, as well as Cannon Mtn. Cannon is in fact the least busy -- I've never seen a long lift line there yet. Thanks and Regards - Owner

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2009

  • 5 of 5
We would like to thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful vacation home for our Christmas vacation. We have been doing this for the past 5 years and this is our first timein the White Mtns - we couldn't have asked for a better place to vacation.

Our week was packed with fun and adventure. We managed to ski 3 mountains in 3 days beginning with Waterville Valley, Loon and Cannon. We ended our 3 day ski-a-thon with fireworks on New Years Eve at Waterville.

Thank you again for a great opportunity and we hope to visit again.

AN ABSOLUTE JOY

  • 5 of 5
Last fall, I organized a small reunion of some friends who I had not seen since our college days. Our careers and relationships had taken us across the country, but we always stayed in touch. One thing we shared was a love of the outdoors. So, we went looking for a house or lodge for rent where we could relax, enjoy the foliage, go hiking, and catch up on life. Let me tell you this location is PERFECT! The pictures of the property are great, but they don't do it justice. It was beautifully maintained and very clean. The massive fireplace became a centerpiece which we relaxed around, as did the front deck, as we stared out across the mountains (the house is on a large hill, giving it a spectacular panoramic view). Jon, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with in planning our escape to NH.

As an aside, don't miss out on the "general store" down the street. It looks like a hole in the wall convenience store at first, but walk further in, and you will find a fresh butcher's counter - the steaks there are delicious!

The reason I am writing this post so far after my stay? Well, I am getting ready to plan the 2nd reunion for this fall and realized (much to my shame) that I had not honored our host with a review! We will definitely be looking to book here again!

SKI WEEKEND WITH FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
The lodge was fantastic.

It was spacious enough to accommodate 9 adults easily. The kitchen easily supported cooking for all of us, and there was space to eat together. Wood fire is a nice feature after a day on the slopes.

We all said we would definitely come back to this lodge.
