Convenient to everything
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
First, thank you to Cort and the owners for letting us avoid the rains of Hurricane Irene and move our rental back one day. The house had some very nice features especially the back patio with firepit. We enjoyed our evenings out back. The DVD player was nice too. The house was situated central to everything we wanted to go to: Santa's Village, Cog Railway, Franconia Notch attractions, and Story Land (a bit far from the latter, but ok).
One downside to the property is the proximity to a major road. The skylights in the two upstairs bedrooms face the road, and when they are open the noise is very loud. On warm summer evenings, we had to have these open or it's too hot to sleep. When the skylights are closed the noise is no problem. So I'd be more likely to recommend this as a ski rental.
Also, there are several screens and windows that are broken/missing and need to be replaced. Finally more lighting is needed over the sink and stove.
Manager responded on 9/22/2011:
Thank you for your open and honest review Ms. Diaz, and of course thank you for the outstanding manager rating. To offer feedback regarding this home, the owner is in process of making updates and upgrades to include new windows coming in this fall, 2011, which will make all the difference come summer 2012. Good working windows & screen will all be in place by then, as will be air conditioners to thwart both the hot nights and road noise accordingly. Also, rest assured the owner will be updating the lighting in the kitchen. Thanks again for coming our way Deborha. Sincerely, Cort Roussel, Owner-Broker at Franconia Notch Vacations.
