Perfect in Every Way
We were looking for a place to hold a family reunion—up to 30 adults and children—for a week in June. We were gathering from all over the USA. We needed two places closely situated and this house was one of two we chose. It was great and definitely the "gathering spot" for our meals and evening get togethers (the townhouse we also rented but fine but this house had a larger kitchen and great room and more bed space).
Don't be put off by the fact it only has two bathrooms—one up and one on the second floor. It was completely adequate.
More bed space is real plus here; the loft on the second floor provides two extra beds. Being a separate house, not a townhouse, is also a plus: more parking and more privacy. It's a nice easy walk to the Mt. Washinton Resort from here (maybe half a mile and well worth the trip). Internet access and cable access with two TV's was also a plus.
This is a great central location for hiking, shopping, restaurants etc., although only the Mt. Washington Resort is within actual walking distance. (Stock up with groceries before you arrive.) Most of us took the cog railway up Mt. Washington, visited Attitash, and went to the Lost River caves, all kid-friendly activities.
The owners were accommodating in every way and dealt with minor problems we encountered promptly and efficiently. The place was spotless when we arrived, and we were even allowed to drop off some foodstuffs early.
The house is very nicely appointed with modern furniture and appliances. There is lots of space in the kitchen for "stuff"; the owners have done a great job of anticipating every need—from coffee maker filters to corkscrews, dishes and silverware to walkie talkies. There is nice selection of DVD's, games, and paperbacks for those who are so inclined.
The deck is perfect, overlooking the mountains, and offers privacy. The gas grill works great too.
It's great value for what you get and earns my highest recommendation.
