'THE GECKO INN' TRANQUIL LOCATION, HOT TUB, FIREPLACE,

North Conway House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Loft + Den, Sleeps 12

A truly central White Mountain location!

Treat yourself to time in a tranquil vacation retreat that is private and charismatic, yet is close to all the attractions that make the Mount Washington Valley renowned. The home we call the ''Gecko Inn'' is located at the end of a wooded dead-end street with a two-acre wooded backyard, which makes for a very peaceful setting. The Moat mountains can be seen from the deck and bedrooms as you look across the expansive National forest.

Hot tub all year around

No matter whether your interest is skiing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, golfing, shopping, or just plain relaxing the location of this house is ideally situated. It is three minutes to the spectacular North Conway public golf course, to Echo Lake, and to extensive hiking trails in the National forest, including the beautiful waterfalls and swimming pools of Diana's Baths. The Saco and Swift Rivers are very close by for water sports.

Awaiting you in North Conway Village, a short seven minutes away, is tax-free, outlet shopping, a plethora of spectacular restaurants, great nightly entertainment, numerous seasonal activities, sightseeing, and good old New Hampshire hospitality. Mount Cranmore ski resort is also within ten minutes. Attitash Bear Peak ski and Alpine water slide is a mere eight miles away and Mount Washington and Wildcat Mountain Ski Resorts are about a 20-minute drive. Thirty minutes to Bretton Woods Ski and 50 minutes to Sunday River.

Family fun and entertainment abounds in the Mount Washington Valley area. Story Land, Santa's Village, the Conway Scenic Railroad, museums, local farms, hay rides, and many other amusements are all within a short drive of the house. Skiers will appreciate the short distances to multiple ski mountains . Stay in North Conway and enjoy the Mount Washington Valley to its fullest in every season!

Inside the spacious contemporary home you will find three floors. The open-plan first floor has a full bathroom, a bedroom with two sets of bunk beds, a fully-equipped kitchen, a six-foot farmer's table and a breakfast bar, and a cathedral ceiling, extensively windowed living room, with fireplace, that opens onto a 300-square-foot deck from which you can enjoy peace and solitude, or have social gatherings.

The second floor has one bedroom with a queen-size bed and view of the Moat mountains, another bedroom also with a queen sized bed, a full bathroom, and a loft area with a single bed and seating space.

The lower, finished with full bath, bedroom with two single beds and a 2nd family room with TV and two queen sofa-beds. Walk-out basement can again be used as additional living space (put the kids down there with the 2nd TV!) Our hot tub is located outside on the deck in a glassed-in sun room.

The house is perfect for two families to share a vacation.

There is a gazebo in the backyard and a fire pit just outside for those romantic autumnal evenings. The surrounding area is quiet and peaceful, with conservation land nearby for hiking and cross-country skiing.

New Hampshire room tax is included in all rates.

Full winter season rental Not available.

Owner's Response: Please let us know why we got a 4 star rating not 5. Out of 47 reviews I think we have only had 4 less than a 5 star rating. From your review comments it seems you were happy with everything but something held you back from giving us a 5. We strive to improve so let us know what could have been better from your perspective. Many thanks

EXCELLENT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 4 adults was delighted by the property: It was well stocked, clean, and inviting--close to North Conway's attractions but away from the crowds. We arrived late in the evening and our GPS led us to the address without trouble. Our communications with the owners were pleasant and helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend it to friends visiting the White Mountains.

GREAT, QUIET PLACE!

  • 4 of 5
We truly enjoyed our brief stay at The Gecko Inn. Our main reason for visiting the N. Conway area was to take our 2 toddlers to Storyland. The location of the rental house was perfect...about a 10-15 min. drive, and that's accounting for traffic! The house is very spacious with 3 liveable floors. Our family of 4 and a family of 3 were able to spread out quite comfortably. The children especially loved the toy "room"...so much toys in there!

Everything in the home was clean and fairly modern. The kitchen is very well equipped with most everything you would need. There were also plenty of extra linens. The only problem we encountered on our stay was that the hot tub was malfunctioning so we were not able to use it. But the owners were very prompt in returning our call and sending out a tech the next morning to fix it.

Definitely a great place for families with children or multiple families getting together. We hope to visit again!

GECKO INN

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent four weeks at the Gecko Inn. The house was perfect for visiting family, including grandkids, and we all enjoyed the excellent late season skiing at Cranmore and Bretton Woods. The house is perfectly situated for easy access to all the local ski areas as well as shopping and restaurants in the vicinity. The owner was helpful in getting us set up and responded immediately to a plumbing problem that was quickly resolved. we would strongly recommend this property for any family looking to spend any length of time in the North Conway area.

LADIES WEEKEND IN NORTH CONWAY

  • 5 of 5
The house is quite spacious, very clean, perfectly located, and absolutely gorgeous! We had a Ladies Weekend in the house and we were pleasantly surprised by all of the amenities the house was supplied with and kept saying, “Wow, they have thought of everything!” We have a lot of great memories – lots of laughs and storytelling, and I cannot forget to mention we really enjoyed the hot tub! The only regret we had was not staying longer than a weekend! I am hoping to visit the Gecko Inn again in the future. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
