Franconia House Rental Photos and Description

2 master Bedrooms, plus two large open sleeping areas...fits 10+

On 8 acres located between Cannon Mountain and the center of Franconia (each 3 minutes away), this secluded three-floor house enables two families to share civilized and easy living. Furnishings are a mix of New England country antiques and mid-century modern. An oversized two-car garage connects to main living floor via a covered walkway.

The main floor has a spacious living/dining room with a wood stove, a master BR with full bath, and a new composite deck with a view of Cannon Mountain. The upper level has a private BR with new pillow top queen bed, plus three twin beds in an adjacent large loft area (3/4 bath with extra height shower on this floor). The garden level is an open room with two queen beds, and a full bath. On this level there is also a TV/VCR/DVD and seating area, a full laundry room, plus a long work desk /home office area. The entire house has WIFI from our very fast fiberoptic cable, suitable for showing movies on the large wall with your projector.

About Deebie S. Hood

I've been coming here since I was a child, developing my fathers love for the north woods.

Deebie S. Hood purchased this house in 1925

Why Deebie S. Hood chose White Mountains

This house is on property my grandparents bought in 1925. We designed and built it, afer selling the grandparents older log cabin next door. Impressive long-span beams support the ceiling, and the house feels able to withstand the worst winter weather. It is a place of total peace and tranquility relatively unchanged since my childhood -- one supermarket, one gas station, one blinking light. Yet I never tire of exploring local antiques, main streets and back streets of nearby towns, and the scenic wonders of the Flume, Basin, Lonesome Lake, and AMC huts. It smells like pine forest everywhere, and the trails are magical-- better than anywhere else.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice stay. The house is great!! It is a very nice location and it feels like home. We did amazing hiking on Franconia Ridge, through the woods, on Cannon Mountain and others.

My experience renting this property from Ms. Symmes was great from beginning to end. She was consistently prompt in her responses to me about reserving the rental, the details of arrival, our stay, and departure.

The home was clean, quaint (though, not as quaint as the pictures on here would have you believe), and inviting. We took Grandpa, our 3 young sons (ages 4-10), and our family dog and everyone had plenty of space, but not much to worry about in the way of fragile, breakable things. However, the furnishings were all cozy, clean, and comfortably casual.

The cable and media was a little tricky, but on our rainy day, there were plenty of books and games to occupy us while we enjoyed the views from the huge picture windows.

The house got a little warm during the day while the temperatures were in the 70's-80's in the sunshine, but there are lots of screened windows to open to cool the place off in the evening and the windows added a lovely touch to sleeping here. Speaking of sleeping, there were plenty of beds for us to choose from, so when my husband and I realized that the futons in the basement wouldn't suit us, we were able to move to the queen bed upstairs (which is in an awesome little room to the side of the loft that has beautiful ceiling beams) and sleep more comfortably. Grandpa was also very happy with his bedroom, the master on the main level.

I cannot say enough good things about the location of this house, either! We were within 20 minutes of almost everywhere we wanted to go. Littleton is only 15 minutes away, where they offer well-priced 3D movies, a lovely downtown area, and some more common franchises found throughout the US. Lincoln has almost a small college town feel to it, with attractions such as the Hobo Railroad (the 4th of July party train was fun!), Whale's Tail Water Park, and a few restaurants, taverns, and ice cream shoppes open until 10 pm for summer hours. But, BEST OF ALL, we were 10 minutes from the White Mountains, specifically Cannon Mtn, which my family hiked from the top to the bottom and we got to reminisce about it every time we saw it from our deck at this rental property! We did not get a chance to hike the Ridge Trail on Mount Lafayette or go to Echo Beach Lake, but we will get to those next time around!

Thank you, Deebie, for being a great hostess! We will definitely recommend you over and over again :)
