About Mike and Lee
Local to New England, we have always loved the variety of travel options and adventures that abound in this area. Although there never seems to be enough free time to go all the places we would love to visit, one of the most important aspects of enjoying your adventure, we believe, is where you stay. After a day of fun filled activities (that seemed achievable when planning, but probably was a tad bit ambitious), it is wonderful to return to accommodations that are welcoming and relaxing. That is why we are so excited to be able to offer our home and host kindred travel spirits!
Mike and Lee purchased this House in 2018
Why Mike and Lee chose Chocorua Ski & Beach
Growing up in this area, we have always enjoyed vacationing in New Hampshire. It offers such a variety of activities and beauty during every season. The White Mountains region has always been a favorite; and we have been on the look-out for the perfect house for many years - and we finally found it! We are so excited for fellow travelers to enjoy our quiet retreat nestled in the woods! We believe it offers the charm, tranquility and ambiance that all vacationers will love, and will hopefully warrant your return, year after year.
What makes this House unique
We are true believers that "life is better at the lake"! Our retreat is located in the quiet Chocorua Ski and Beach community with its own private lake - Moore's Pond. Minutes from our front door, as you sit on the beautiful sandy beach at the lake's edge, you see the splendor of Mt. Chocorua across the water. The home itself offers rustic charm that is warm and relaxing. Enjoy the wood burning stove in the living room for a quiet evening (or Netflix marathon), or if you still have energy after your day of activities, venture downstairs to our re-created English Pub for a game of darts and cocktails at the bar.

Birthday wish come true.
If your looking for a sweet rental this is it. One of the cleanest and coziest places we have stayed at. Everything you see is what you get. The master bed was very comfortable and was nice sitting by the wood stove sipping wine getting hypnotized by the flames. It was a short ride into Conway for the day . Had a few nice meals Rosie's for lunch and Jakes for dinner. Took a walk down to the pond and what views of the mountains from there So pretty after the fresh snow we got. Looking forward to checking out this area in the summer. Hopefully rebooking this place. We both were celebrating our birthdays and could not of had wished for a better time. Thanks Lee & Mike
Thank you for your wonderful feedback and we are so glad you had a lovely birthdays! We greatly appreciated having such fantastic guests who enjoy our home and take care of it as if it was their own. It was a pleasure communicating with you and we would love for you to return so you can see enjoy the area in the summer!
Warmest regards, Lee & Mike
A nice four days in September
The property is well-located for an active family or, as we were, a visiting couple. It is charmingly decorated (seasonally, it appears), well-stocked and most comfortable. We enjoyed cooking in and, as a base of operations, using it as we made day trips in the area of Lake Winnipesaukee. It was a very pleasant experience and a value at the cost. JB
James - it was such a pleasure corresponding with you and hosting you and your wife at our home. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and greatly appreciate what loving care you took in treating it as if it were your own home. We would love to host you again if you return to the area!
Wonderful Quiet Location
A lovely homely property set in woods within walking distance of a lake. Everything is provided as stated and the property owners were very quick to respond with any questions.
We have stayed in the area a few times and this was by far the nicest home we have had the pleasure of staying in. Plenty of room, immaculately clean, and everything is beautifully kept - the pictures are perfectly accurate. One thing I didn't see in the listing, which is nice to note is that there are beach chairs, toys, and wagon for your use as well. The backyard was great - larger and more private than most we've seen - with plenty of chairs to relax around the fire pit. They even left out some firewood for us : )
We love the proximity to White Lake, but having a walkable lake and playground was wonderful - our 5 & 8 year olds loved them and every neighbor we saw was so friendly!
The owners were wonderful to communicate with - quick to answer emails and any questions and always so nice too!
Other places may be closer to places like StoryLand (which isn't a bad ride by any means) or other big attractions in the White Mountains, but we will continue to come to this neck of the woods for the peaceful lakes and quiet that you get further away from the crowds.
I will definitely recommend this home to anyone looking in the area and will be back again next time we are up that way.
Lynnette - we are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay, and thank you so much for being such fantastic guests! It is always so nice to rent to vacationers who treat our home with such great care and respect, as if it were their own! We actually love communicating with our guests and it was a pleasure corresponding with you as well, and its always great to hear that we were able to provide everything needed during you stay. We would greatly look forward to renting to you again the next time you return to the White Mountain area!
Thank you again!!

Home Away From Home
This was a great property. We have stayed in this community for a few years now. This was our first time at this location. The back yard was AMAZING. The bar was great (regrettably unused, as we had amazing weather). We spent our entire time on rotation of swimming, playground, grilling, fire pit, repeat. We had all the conveniences of home tucked away in our own little sanctuary. There were plenty of trees to provide shade and a slight breeze. The beach and playground were fabulous as always. I do not think there is anything I would add about this property or offer constructive criticism. We would definitely love to come back to this property in the future!
It is always so gratifying to host a wonderful family who enjoys all the many benefits of our home and also treats it like their own. Thank you so much for being so conscientious and taking such fabulous care of our property during you stay! We can't wait to host your family again soon, perhaps during another season (and you will have time to stay indoors and enjoy our Pub)!
Pictures were not to good to be true!
Mike and Lee were excellent hosts and provided precise information in the booking and also with a binder in the home that has an answer to any questions that you could even think of.
Beautiful property. Warm and cozy. We were up in the area for a wedding and were so happy to find this place. We will definitely book again. The pub downstairs was such a nice touch.
Mike and Lee thanks again for opening up your home to us!
Darrell and Melissa.
Darrell and Melissa - thank you so much for being such fabulous guests. It's so wonderful to host to a couple like yourselves who enjoy our home and take such fantastic care while you are there - so thank you again, and we greatly look forward to having you stay again soon!
