Conway House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Whether you’re visiting for a weekend, a week or even longer, our vacation home is the perfect gateway for all your White Mountain activities. Located in scenic Conway, New Hampshire, our home is just two miles south of North Conway’s shopping and dining opportunities and is convenient to everything that draws you to the area (skiing, hiking, golfing, biking, paddling, leaf peeping, shopping, dining, attractions and of course, relaxing). Our home is in Evergreens on the Saco, a quiet community of upscale single family homes in a naturalized setting with a private, sandy 2,400 ft long beach on the pristine waters of the Saco river. The home itself is a four bedroom, three bath open concept contemporary with ample windows that bathe each room in soothing natural light. We welcome you to come and enjoy Forest River Retreat and all that the White Mountains have to offer. Remember...”It’s all good in the mountains!”.

Our home features a well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar seating for three, a soaring living room with cathedral ceilings accented by a sky light. The living room has a gas fireplace to keep you warm on chilly nights, a 50 inch HD plasma TV and leads to a covered deck for outside living. Heating is controlled by an Internet thermostat that allows our winter time guests to arrive to a warm home. There's plenty of convenient parking just outside the front door and our home has a covered deck for your outside enjoyment. We offer a canoe with foam car racks and tie-downs, paddles and assorted personal flotation devices for your enjoyment. New for 2012: All bedrooms and the main living area are now air conditioned!!!

About Karen and Jim

Our story – grew up in the same town, went to the same high school and met serving steaks at a local restaurant (what fun! no really, it was fun!). Fast forward to today, we love to travel and have traveled extensively throughout the US and Europe (maybe New Zealand or South America next!). We’re also the extremely proud parents of two great kids!

Karen and Jim purchased this house in 2010

Why Karen and Jim chose Conway

Our very first vacation together was a camping trip to Jigger Johnson on the Kancamagus Highway. This was an experience for me considering that I was born and bred in New England, but had never camped before or even visited the White Mtns (picture outdoorsy, wildlife loving guy meets one hour prep time girl – you get the idea!). Anyway, we had a great time! Over the years we’ve visited the area many, many times with our kids, extended family and friends and loved it as much as our first vacation together. When we decided to buy a second home there was no other area to consider. We’d rather be in the White Mtns!

What makes this house unique

If you’ve read through our previous information, you know our first vacation together was a camping trip. Our home is special because it’s like camping without having to sleep in a tent, but still provides a great outdoor experience (very good for one hour prep time girl who happens to like electricity and outdoorsy, wildlife loving guy)!

Beautiful Home in an Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a ski weekend with family (four couples). The house is incredibly clean and offers all the amenities you could need - especially in the kitchen. The layout is perfect for couples to have their own very large bedrooms, with plenty of common space in the kitchen/living room and the downstairs gameroom. The location is ideal for the ski areas that are within 30 mins, the outlet shopping and downtown area. Karen was great to rent from - very responsive. We have rented multiple times through homeaway.com and would put this as one of our best experiences. We look forward to going back!

Beautiful and comfortable vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and welcoming. Three couples stayed on the three separate floors. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we were able to grill steaks on the deck. The house is in a small subdivision with a private beach along the river, very quiet low traffic area. You can tell as soon as you walk into the home that the owners take a lot of pride in their home and want their guests to feel welcome. The location is easily accessible to many of the attractions in the area, including a scenic drive to Mt Washington, a beautiful drive along the Kancamagus Highway to look for moose, and a short hike for amazing views at Cathredral Ledge. We originally planned to stay for only two nights, but enjoyed the house and area so much that we contacted the owners and added on an extra night. We would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the Conway area.

great ski weekend

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed here for a ski weekend and it was wonderful! It was clean, very well kept, and comfortable. One of the reviews mentioned not enough cookware, but we found there was more than enough while cooking for 8 people. We plan to come back again next year!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family recently stayed at this lovely home and found it to be the perfect house for a family getaway! It was spacious, immaculate, and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of room for the 4 adults and two young children. The house is in a great location, close to town but in a private setting. The river access was a fantastic bonus with the kids! The owners were wonderful to deal with - extremely responsive to emails and available to anwer any questions we had. I would recommend bringing a couple child gates for the one staircase in the home if you have young children. We highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
A ton of space for the $$$. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We have six adults and a one year old. Rented for two weeks and are currently staying here now. :-) This is a steal for the slice of luxury you get (TV, internet, space, comfy furniture, etc.) It is located in a quiet development with nice neighbors and literally a 5-minute walk (we timed it) to a sandy river beach that just as much enjoyable for the older folks as it was for our 18 month old son.
There is no central air or A/C but the ample amount of windows and ceiling fans helped to provide a respit from the heat. Parking is fantastic. The covered rear deck with grill was a great place to eat but had poor lighting at night due to an unfinished overhang where the light would be. There is a lantern fixture outside of the door that gives you side light but not overhead light. All the bathrooms are overstocked with towels, toilet paper, etc.
The pros to being here are almost endless. The only cons we noticed was that the majority of the outlets do not have covers on them for toddlers, there were no cleaning supplies in the kitchen to clean up after a meal, mess, wipe the colunter, etc, there were two dozen coffee mugs but minimal cookware to cook meals and the back & side yard were crying to be landscaped. Small things but noticable for extended stays.
Overall the place is a gem! We will be back next summer! :-)
