The Perfect Escape - Sweeping View of Mount Washington and Presidential Range!
Please treat our family home as you would your own and leave it in the same or better shape than you found it. We started building our family summer home in 1996, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. We are sure you will love many things in our home; be sure to leave them as you found them.
Israel purchased this House in 1986

Relax, cook dinner with the family, build a campfire, curl up and read, whatever you do you can do it in private and surrounded by the beauty of nature. On the other hand it is ideally located to make day trips to all of the area attractions. Littleton and it's great boutique shopping and dining are 25 minutes away. Crawford Notch and Bretton Woods are 30 min. Franconia Notch and Cannon Mountain are 35 minutes away. Pinkham Notch, The base of Mt. Washington and Wildcat Mountain are 50 min.

The house was beautiful and had everything needed for a wonderful vacation. We are sure to return.
We had an amazing stay at the Bray Hill House. The property is gorgeous and has all the amenities you need to be comfortable and to thoroughly enjoy your stay. The kitchen is awesome and we made som delicious meals together. The views from the house are breathtaking. We loved sitting by the fire and watching the sun set each night. The amber glow across the mountains was fantastic. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are super comfortable. We also enjoyed the sauna after days of skiing. Snow shoeing was a blast right on the property. There is a marked trail we enjoyed a few times with our Bernese Mountain dog, Oakley.
We absolutely want to come back and stay again. We made some wonderful memories during our stay.
Thanks for being a fabulous host, Israel!
It was a pleasure hosting Kim and her family for a week during school vacation. They were incredibly fortunate with beautiful weather and perfect ski conditions. While they enjoyed the many games in the house they also donated a new game to our collection. It's the first time a guest has left us a special gift and we really appreciate it. We hope to host them again!
Everything was beyond our expectations from the exquisite details to the stunning views. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was a dream and the sauna was an added bonus. The Bray Hill House has every amenity one could think of. We were able to do some hiking along the property and enjoy the tranquility when we arrived back after long days of skiing. The children enjoyed the house to its fullest by playing some of the supplied games, sleds, puzzles and PS4. Cleanliness and organization was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to staying again in the near future.
Our journey to the Bray Hill House almost did not happen. Three hours into the trip our Yukon Denali stalled as we exited the highway for a quick snack . Fortunately we picked up a rental and continued on. We contacted Israel to let him know we were not going to make our ETA of 3:00 PM and more likely it would be after dark. He had the heat set at a comfy 65 degrees and made sure all of the exterior lights were turned on upon our arrival. Little did did we know that getting there after dark would lead to such an amazing experience the following morning. As we opened the door to our bedrooms to start our day my wife, son and I were greeted by one of the most breathtaking panoramic views that any of us have ever witnessed. I stood in place for almost five minutes taking it all in. The moment might not have been as powerful if we made it on time during the daylight hours. That being said the home is an architectural masterpiece, the open concept design succeeds on so many levels while the space remains warm and inviting. The house is loaded with every amenity imaginable. There are plenty of games, books and other entertainment on hand and if people are up for some outside activity I suggest venturing outside the homes cozy confines. We took advantage of the private hiking trails on the property which were clearly marked adding a sense of security to our hike. It was awesome to have a little adventure just beyond the front door. The Bray Hill House was more than advertised. We would definitely consider another visit. The Pellegrini Family.
The Pellegrini were wonderful guests and we were happy to help with their late arrival by turning on the exterior lights and warming up the house. The outdoor experience at the house should not be overlooked. We welcome guests to cross-country ski, snow shoe or trek on our property with marked trails. When you stay with us you get complete solitude, an unmatched view, memories the whole family will cherish!
Perfect Mountain Home for Thanksgiving!
Israel’s home exceeded my expectations! The moment we walked through the door, we felt right at home. The complementary bottle of wine, extensive DVD collection, kids’ books and toys, and chef’s kitchen were just a few of the amenities we enjoyed during our Thanksgiving stay. Instructions and a helpful handbook made navigating the house and its appliances very easy. Every time we turned around, we said, “Israel really thought of everything!” We enjoyed the breathtaking view of the mountains from the gorgeous windows, next to the cozy fireplace. Absolutely the best home I have ever rented. We will be back next year!!!
Thank you, we are always trying to improve our hosting and the guests experience. We put extra effort into giving families everything they need to relax and enjoy each others company. Recently we added the children's library with a wide assortment of books for all ages, toddlers to teens.
The property was great and well appointed. The ease of check in check out was great. I would recommend to anyone.
