Beautiful and secluded lakefront property. Lake and mountain views. Large lawn area for summer events. Large deck for activities. Within minutes to major ski areas. Enjoy the loons' mystical calls and magic of the White Mountains. This property has many amenities you won't find in other rentals. You won't find an opportunity like this to get your family and friends together in one place and be as comfortable.
We were a group of 20 friends that rented this property for skiing at Sunday River over the New Year’s holiday week. We had such a wonderful time and the house was a perfect fit for our group!
-Richard is a responsive and friendly owner
-The property manager was readily available as well
-Clean and well maintained house
-Large common space upstairs and downstairs
-Lots of space for people to cook and eat
-Wonderful entertainment space downstairs (with ping pong and pool tables)
-Spacious bedroom and lots of beds (can truly sleep 26 people if needed)
-Plenty of linens and towels provided
-Very well equipped kitchen and a great outdoor grill
-Nice and clean hot tub
We had some water issues during our stay due to a glitch in the water filtration system that caused a minor flood- thankfully the property manager was extremely responsive and it was very quickly and professionally resolved. It did cause some discoloration/sediment in the tap water but it was only for a day. I think this is something that will likely be permanently fixed and it did not negatively impact our overall stay.
As for proximity to Sunday River, it is a good 20 minute drive to the mountain but that is something our group was okay with. The grocery store was only a 10 minute drive and there is a gas station within walking distance for basics.
I would 100% rent this property again if my group chooses Sunday River for skiing next year. It also looks like it is really wonderful in the summer as well because it is right on the lake. It was a beautiful (and frozen) view for us!
This house is right on Bryant Pond with huge windows overlooking the pond. Every room in this house is large. We were a group of 15 and it never felt like there were that many people there. The property is kept up and the house was clean. The kitchen is fully stocked including spices, sugar, etc. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels for everyone. There are 2 washers and dryers if you need them. You don't even need to leave the house, there is plenty of entertainment in the house. Although we didn't meet the owners in person, they are very nice and responded to telephone calls and emails immediately. Everyone in our group only had positive things to say while we were there.
This is the 2nd year we have rented and the place is outstanding. The facility is very clean and can easily accommodate large parties (Family reunions, retreats, etc.). Nice open floor plan on the main living level and a great pool table and ping pong space in the finished basement make it perfect for our crew. The weather was nice enough for us to congregate out on the deck and the hot tub is a great feature. Hope to be back next year!
