About Katie and Tony

We are from the Boston area and have been visiting North Conway for many years for family vacations. We have a baby girl born in 2014, and hope that one day she will learn to ski at Cranmore just like her mom.

Katie and Tony purchased this house in 2001

Why Katie and Tony chose White Mountains

I was looking to purchase a house on Crown Ridge Road because of its proximity to town and large lot sizes. When I saw this house there was no question - I want to retire here! The fireplaced living room sold me. I hope you will enjoy my home as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Birch Retreat is on 1.4 acres with a mountain view. Although it is just over a mile from the middle of town, the setting feels completely secluded. The livingroom has a great view of both the mountains and the plethera of birds that frequent the feeder.

Amazing home to stay in with family, GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in Katie's Birch Retreat home in North Conway. We love this place! The home is perfect for our family, well stocked, and very close to everything we need yet still nice in secluded in the woods. Katie is a phenomenal host, we had a handful of things we needed help with and she got back to us immediately. The TV in the main family room was glitchy and would not play our firestick or gaming system. I emailed Katie about it and she immediately called me back informing me she had bought a new TV to replace it. I was very impressed! You can't go wrong staying here!

This home had everything we could have asked for during a vacation. Katie was fantastic in terms of prompt communication both before and during our stay. Wish we could stay longer. Hope to return to Birch Retreat in the future.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a last min. Trip for a family getaway and Katie was awesome! Totally accommodating and even planned it at 12:30 at night the night before over the phone while she was checking in vacation away for herself and family. The house was warm cozy large and lodgey. I have a one year old and it was perfect for her... so much room and had everything she needed high chair, crib, gates etc. beds were super comfy! Great for large groups of people...Will be back again!

Perfect vacation home for a mountain getaway; wonderful with kids

  • 5 of 5

Birch Retreat is wonderful. The house is everything advertised in its description and more. Before we arrived, Katie answered all of our questions quickly and accurately, so we felt fully prepared for our trip, which meant a lot because this was our first VRBO rental and we were traveling with young kids. Upon arrival, the house was clean, welcoming, and in perfect working order, and it remained that way throughout our stay. The home is modern and well-equipped, but also fits in perfectly with the mountain setting, so we felt like we were truly getting away from it all for a real vacation. The kitchen is wonderful and we particularly enjoyed the upstairs living room, with its comfortable furnishings, great scenery, and special bird-feeder view, which was a real hit with the kids. The bedrooms were comfortable and well-sized, and the children were huge fans of the downstairs game room. The location is also outstanding, as it allows easy access to town but also a real sense of being away and fully immersed in the beautiful mountainous surroundings. We enjoyed wonderful walks in the neighborhood, both right behind the house and in some of the nearby areas. The house was cool and shaded, which was ideal for our summer trip, but we also imagine it being outstanding in the fall, winter, and spring as well. North Conway is the perfect area for a vacation and Birch Retreat is the perfect home for it. We hope to stay there again in the future.
