Pour family of 6 had an amazing ski season!

  • 5 of 5

Karen opened her home to us and treated us like family! There was more than enough room for our entire family of 6 and more! The house was super clean and was minutes from the slopes. We had a great season and look forward to next year!

Wonderful Gathering He

  • 5 of 5

We needed a gathering place for family and friends during the days surrounding our daughter 'a wedding, and this was perfect. With the rehearsal dinner at Chef Joe's in Franconia, the wedding at St. Matthew's Chapel in Sugar Hill and the reception at Bishop's Farm in Lisbon, the location was perfect. We were able to gather every night before the blazing fireplace to visit and play games. Having this farmhouse made things work beautifully. What memories we have! Thank you, Karen, for being so thoughtful and making the process so very easy.

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this vacation and home, from start to finish. Our correspondence with Karen throughout the whole process was warm, friendly, professional, helpful and so thoughtful!

The house is perfect in every way. It has the charm of an old farm house, yet the size and the modern amenities to make it very comfortable. It has the wonderful New Hampshire get-away house feel (and smell - ahhh) that I remember so fondly from my childhood vacations to Franconia.

The house was perfect in size, too. We brought a blended family of 5 (3 teenagers!) and everyone had enough space and privacy, but also many opportunities for cozy moments of family time. I love to cook, and the kitchen is spacious and had everything I needed to make dinner every night. Loved it!

The house is in the perfect location. We couldn't believe that we were on main street - just a short walk from the town - because it still felt removed from everything and felt very much like a retreat from the noise and hustle of every day life. Also, It is just a 10 or 15-minute drive to the Notch and all the things to see: Cannon Mountain, the Flume, the Basin, etc.

Another thing I loved about the house was the thoughtfulness that Karen and her family put into the whole experience. I was so grateful for the clear instructions and labels on everything, for the binders with info about the area, for the games that were available to play, and for the way everything was set up so perfectly for our enjoyment. I marveled at the energy and forethought that they put into in.

I have already recommended this house to friends and family and I will continue to do so! I would love to stay again and again!

Thank you, Karen!!!

Sisters Week

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week with my five sister at your lovely home in Franiconia. We really enjoy your home and the large yard for games we played everyday. We also did daily walks around the town and liked how clean and quaint it was. Went to Polly pancake house and it was wonderful.

Played Mimi golf in Lincoln which was great fun. Headed over to North Conway for and afternoon of shopping. The ride was beautiful over the Kangusmaus Highway.

Our Franconia Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of your house. Our new favorite place is Mojo's, the coffee shop down the street. Cannon mntn is only a short ride away. Your house is so quaint and comfortable to stay at. Everything you need is there. We had fun just cooking at home at night and sitting by the fireplace. We did go to a nice restaurant one night, Caterer Joe 's. The food and atmosphere were fabulous. We would highly recommend your house to friends and family for a great all seasons get away. We hope to be back there soon !!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Franconia. Finding "Chef Joe's Catering" a resteraunt just down the road from the house is certainly a local secret to stumble upon. His cooking is like dining in a Providence resteraunt! He is a graduate of Johnson & Whales!! Lucky you found this as it is only open in the winter but he will cater small or large events for house guests all year round! Glad you enjoyed the whole town area and of course our cozy home! Come back anytime...Karen
