We visited Helena's lovely condo with our group of 13 (7 adults, 6 kids) as part of a weekend visit to Santa's Village in Jefferson, NH. The condo could not have been more perfect for our group. It was big enough so that each family felt that they had their own "space" and yet we could all gather in the various common spaces when necessary. Some earlier reviewers commented on the lack of seating at the dining room table but Helena easily solved that by providing a number of folding chairs (stored in the laundry room downstairs) that could be brought up to the dining room table when needed.
The condo made it easy for the adults to socialize after the kids went to bed. The bedrooms were laid out in such a way that noise did not seem to travel upstairs or downstairs. Since we visited during the Summer, we were also able to use the outdoor fire pit and seating area, both of which were a welcome addition to the choices of gathering spaces!
The weekend we visited was a little hot and while the condo does not have central AC (most condos in ski country do not!) Helena has stocked the house with numerous fans and each bedroom either had ample windows and/or a balcony with a door that allowed for plenty of nighttime breezes and cross ventilation. All in all we were very comfortable temperature-wise!
Thank you Helena for allowing my family to stay in your wonderful, comfortable, well-decorated and thoughtfully appointed NH home. We had a blast!
