Why Sharon chose North Conway

I purchased this home in December 1997 after searching for over a year to find just the right place. It is close enough to all the conveniences of the Valley, but the location, makes you feel like you are miles from town, on a private, quiet dead end road, with just enough surrounding woods to give you added privacy.

What makes this chalet unique

This chalet is located on 1/2 acre & offers a blend of a great yard for kids to play and the surrounding woods for added privacy. If you sit quietly, long enough, on the porch, you may see (as I have many times) an array of wildlife. Bears, birds, chipmunks, deer, fox, wild turkeys and on occasion even a moose!

Nice cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at the Dear Den over the weekend with my wife and two young children. The cottage is well equipped, and my kids especially enjoyed the box of toys in the living room. The upstairs has a nice open layout, and the bedrooms are all downstairs. Everything worked as it should, and the location was convenient to restaurants and shopping in North Conway. There are several nice hiking locations nearby that we visited. Overall we had a very nice time staying here, and Sharon was very pleasant to deal with.

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Sharon was very responsive, personable, and helpful from the time I submitted questions online through the end of my stay via email, texts, and phone calls .Sharon is simply the best!! She is extremely gracious and genuinely wants you to enjoy her little slice of heaven. Sharon and her family has clearly poured their absolute best into the cabin to make it a retreat for all who are fortunate to enter its doors. My wife and I were looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York. This cabin was PERFECT! We did not want to leave. We had everything we could possibly need. Décor was beautiful, clean,comfortable, all the amenities of a 5 star hotel, sans the butler. A well stocked kitchen, comfortable living room. We had a fantastic music selection, books, cd's, dvd's, games, and most importantly for me, a hammock in which I lazed and read a 400 page book in the back yard, surrounded by the tall birch trees!! We loved the location. Shopping, swimming in Echo Lake, hiking, and kayaking, were all within 5 to 8 minutes from the house. In the evenings we sat on the well lit furnished porch, listening to the chirping and night sounds, and played scrabble. In the morning we were visited by a most gracious humming bird. Life seemed to slow down while we were there and it was exactly what we needed.

Book this cabin! You will love your time here and be looking at the calendar for a return visit!!

Owner's Response: Over the years, since I bought the chalet, I have concentrated on decorating, remodeling, updating and making this cabin just as you described, a retreat. It truly warms my heart to hear all the wonderful things you had to say about "my slice of heaven". I appreciate the fact that when you left, it was exactly as you had found it, nice and neat and clean. I certainly hope you plan on returning.

Absolutely Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed up here from Friday May 20'th to Sunday May 22'nd with My family and we had such a great time. The house is perfect for keeping everybody entertained. It has such a clear view of the yard from anywhere upstairs so you can feel comfortable relaxing anywhere while being connected with everyone. It is the perfect distance from the center of town and all the attractions. I felt completely safe in the area throughout my stay and then on Sunday morning while we were packing up we got a visit from a friendly black bear. He strolled through the yard inspecting it for any trash and after giving me the seal of approval he continued on to his next appointment I guess. Needless to say we loved it and we will most definitely be returning for another stay in the future.
