Guestbook comments from the manager

Our New Family Get Away

Ann (Centerville, MA)

Review submitted: August 12, 2012 Date of arrival: August 5, 2012

Wow - just wow! Don't even question your thoughts on wanting to rent this quaint home smack dab in the heart of Echo Lake. My kids (ages 13 and 8) and I stayed here the week of August 5 - 12th and had the BEST vacation ever! Even better than Disney!

Every day we had delightful hikes, followed up by swimming in Echo Lake and lots of exploring in the White Mountains. This home is close enough to all North Conway shops and hiking and private enough for a nice relaxing evening on the deck - of which I spent many.

Make sure you take the time to explore Diana's Baths - a short 5 minute drive from the house. Spectacular...

The home is spacious and comfortable and has all of the ameneties needed - including WiFi (thank you Jim for helping me with the password!) My kids are "plugged" in these days and the WiFi was very helpful!

I am very much looking forward to staying in this home next year and the year after that, and after is a wonderful family get away!

Owners response: Thank you Ann and family & Miss Eleanor Rigby ( the adorable parrot )!!!

We work very hard to make our guests happy!

Thank you for taking your time to review our home!

Welcome back anytime!!!

Best Regards,

Maureen & Jim

The property was very clean and comfortable.

We recently stayed at this beautiful home for a week. The owners happened to be there when we arrived (early sorry) and they walked us through their home and made us feel very welcome right from the start. Very nice people. I hope to stay there again someday and would recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice comfortable spot to stay at. Thank you again Jim & Maureen.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Maureen's house was great. The house was very clean and the perfect size for our family. It was a short walk to Echo Lake and hiking trails right from the house. It was also a quick drive into town where you can find pretty much anything you need from coffee, to ice cream, to cupcakes, to outlets! :) We had a very relaxing stay. We plan to come back again....and again. :) I would definitly recommend this house.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures done even do this house justice! We have a one year old, and the house and location were perfect for our family. The walk to the lake was very short and easy, and having the beach pass was so convenient. We enjoyed going into town and to Story Land, all of which are just a short drive away. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. I was also surprised/impressed at all of the pots and pans and other supplies that were in the kitchen. You definitely don't need to bring any of that on your trip. We look forward to coming back again.
