The owner is a Railroad engineer for the former Boston and Maine railroad, thus the name Glen ledge station.
The house has a nice railroad accented decorative train appeal the kids will love.
We have been doing this for over 15 years now and know how to do it right.
So as we say, "All Aboard!"
-For a great vacation !
Jonny Wells purchased this house in 2000
This is a set back, secluded home yet near all the fun the Mount Washington valley has to offer.
2 kitchens, 4 bathrooms, Sauna and Foosball? This has some great amenities not to mention a raised hearth fireplace inside and an outdoor fire pit.
We stayed at this property on MLK weekend 2013. Every year we go away on that weekend with 5 families and often have a hard time finding a house that can accommodate all of us without feeling like we are sitting on top of each other. This house was perfect for what ended up being 30 people. It has 3 levels, 8 bedrooms, a couple of lofts and plenty of floor space for an air mattress if needed. The lower level has a 2nd kitchen which we found very helpful to cook and store the food for that many people. The 15-23 year old's pretty much hung out there the whole time and the little kids were mostly on the 3rd floor playing in the lofts. The main living space occupied the rest of us adults and only once did we feel like we actually had that many people there and that was when we had out annual Prime Rib & Lobster Dinner.
It was very convienient for skiing, shopping and tubing which we did all of.
There are a couple things I would suggest is that they supply the dish clothes to dry the dishes and hand towels for the bathroom. We brought all of our big towels but forgot those. The other thing would be that they need to invest in some new (and more) Utensils....spatulas, big spoons etc as well as some big bowls. If your staying in this house you are probably with a big group and we ran out of some things.
Overall, the place was perfect for our needs and we would consider going back next year and would also refer any friends looking for a large house.
My family and I stayed at Glen Ledge Station for a small family reunion, and we could not have been happier with our stay. The house is beautiful, and there is more than enough room for 22 people. The house itself is located far enough away from other houses so as to not worry about disturbances, but also very close to the community and the mountain! The house is very well kept and clean, and the kids in our group loved making the lofts into "caves." Our one week there was not enough, so we are absolutely coming back!
It rained most of the time that we were in the North Conway area, but we didn't care. There was so much to do and see; close to Storyland Park, lots and lots of hiking and biking trails, great shopping in North Conway, and lots of good things to eat everywhere. And when we were finished with the day, we had this lovely spacious home to dry out in. The house was warm, the beds comfortable, the kitchen well appointed. Staying at Glen Ledge was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Thank you Jonny for making this possible. What a great family reunion we all had.
this was our second time at the house, and we all loved it. it is close to both wildcat and cranmore, and has other fun stuff to do for people not much into skiing. there is plenty of space and the house is super cozy and nice. I highly recommend it to you, for an unforgettable weekend.
Hello, This house is wonderful. Great location just minutes from all the mountains and attractions. Big roomy house with plenty of room for large groups. My friends and I have now rented for the past two years and have had a blast both times. Definitely recommend for anyone that wants to have a memorable vacation.
We had a wonderful experience at Glen Ledge. We had snowy, cloudy, sunny weather - not too cold. It was beautiful and I can only imagine how beautiful it is at other seasons of the year. The house was perfectly suitable for our group of 18 (all related except for two exchange students). The house was comfortable, well stocked with supplies, and I thought it was a pleasant plus to have the beds all made up. Thanksgiving dinner was a success with plenty of room to work in and wow! two ovens! We took advantage of everything that attracted each, making up groups for skiing, tubing, hiking, shopping at the outlets, going to the restaurants, walking the dogs, or reading. I didn't hear one complaint. We look forward to our trip next year. By the way, Jon was an easy going, pleasant guy to work with. Appreciate it. Thanks again.
There is a lot to do in the area. Just five minutes away is the famous 'Storyland' for the kids. Mt Attitash is just ten minutes away with its water & alpine slide, and chairlifts to the top and of course the great skiing in the winter. 5 minutes up the road is Nestlenook skating and sleigh rides
The famous Cog railway is close by at Mt Washington along with the auto road if you prefer to drive to the top and needless to say the multitudes of hiking and biking trails throughout the White Mountains.
The Conway scenic railroad offers a variety of rail trips, romantic dinner trains and great views of the rivers and mountains. There are all kinds of hiking, biking, fishing, inner tubing or canoeing down the Saco River.
