Arrival at Heather and Gordon's place looked just like we were pulling up to the house in the photos... except that photo is wrapped in an amazing valley that really defies adequate description. Gordon was very accommodating, and met us to give us the tour of the house... which is just as unique as shown in the photos. There were 5 of us - 3 adults, and 2 teenage girls... and 2 ginormous dogs...and never once did we feel like we were tripping over each other. Everything worked, and was clean. Now... this is a mountain house... with no air conditioning... so when you open windows, sometimes you get a few bugs, and there's a basement... that kind of smells like a basement - go figure. So this is not a pristine penthouse suite in NYC... it has way more character than that. They raised their sons in this house, and you can see how a family can enjoy living in it. If you're lucky enough to sleep in the master bedroom, the views of the valley when you wake up and the sun is filtering through the cloud bank that layers the valley... breathtaking. And time with the fire pit at sunset and after dark is priceless... but in the summertime, take bug spray! Gordon and Heather are a wealth of knowledge about the local area, including awesome hikes and excellent restaurants. It's an easy and scenic drive into Manchester - and not far from a few other towns as well. We had a fantastic time, and appreciated their hospitality and assistance. We would definitely rent again!
