About Stephani Buchman
We are a family with three young children who live in Toronto, Ontario and love to vacation in New Hampshire. Jeremy is a contractor, builder and Solar Panel Instaler and Stephani is a commercial photographer specializing in Food and Interiors. We love spending quality time together and cherish the time we spend at the cottage. We love it so much we want to share it when we are not there so other people can experience the restful rejuvenation we get when we are there.
Stephani Buchman purchased this House in 2003
Why Stephani Buchman chose Thornton
The property on which the cottage is built has been in our family since 1929. My Grandmother's parents built as small cottage (Wadcheeaukee East) when she and her siblings were teenagers. Her family spent summers there, then eventually my grandmother spent summers there, and my mother, sister and I would visit in the summers. Eventually, my sister and I inherited the property and because we wanted to preserve the family history, we thought that we should build another cottage on the lot (the original cottage is too small) so that we could take our families there and share our love of the White Mountains, and the New Hampshire area.
What makes this House unique
The cottage is cozy and separate from other cottages, yet it is close to all amenities.

None Better Than This Perfect In Every Way!
I can not possibly say enough good things about this rental. It was truly a wonderful and magical place. The cottage was perfect. Spotless when we arrived. I loved the charm of the decor with a mix of antique, vintage and new, all blended together giving the home a special warm & cozy charm. Everything is there that you could possibly need, plus some. They even happened to have a small plastic kiddie pool much to our childs delight since it was such a huge disappointment when we couldn't bring ours. Truly, all you need to bring is clothes to wear since they have supplied everything else!
The property is truly wonderful with walking trails throughout. Beautiful views to enjoy, forest, and nature's beauty all around. A perfect way to enjoy God's creation! You can easily stay put at the cottage and enjoy the property and all it has to offer if you don't want to deal with crowds, or, you can hit all the tourist attractions since they are surprising, only a very short driving distance away. We loved hiking through the forest where the "Fairy's" live, and it just so happens, they have "Fairy" beds in the cottage! When you are at the cottage, you feel as though you are in the middle of no where but yet, you are actually very close to everything you could possibly want. It is the perfect spot for anybody, whether you are single, a couple, or a family, it's sure to please and be a great experience for all. Pets are considered and I could not possibly think of a better place to go hiking with a dog. The four legged family members will be sure to have just as wonderful of a vacation as the two legged family members will. I believe this cottage is a rarety and true gem. I would rate it higher than any 5 star hotel I have ever stayed in. It's a 10 star in my book! You can flip through page after page of cabin rentals on the site like I did, but you truly have to stop once you find this one since, you will not find better than Wadcheeaukee West! I feel very lucky to have found such a great spot and had the privilege to stay there and experience some wonderful and special times and memories that will last my lifetime. It will definitely be the first place I think of going the next time we are looking for a get away to go to. I highly, highly recommend this rental!!

If your looking for a nice quiet place in the woods not far from a nice little town than this is it. Totally enjoyable. Fire pit, grill, plenty of land for walks right out the door.
Thank you for your kind review! We have created this spot to be just as you described. I am so glad we were successful.
Awesome location and cute charmfilled house with plenty of space !
Easy to find and great location for ski areas. Had plenty of kitchen supplies as we did family-dinners. Found the place nice and clean and extremely organized. Also nice to have space heaters and fans available. Only thing we could recommend is the lock box was a bit frozen when we came and it took a while to get the key but that’s all! Thank you so much for letting us use your cottage!
A beautiful country getaway...
This lovely 3 bedroom cottage is perfect for a family getaway. Set in beautiful woods with a mountain view, the cottage is light and warm with a real New Hampshire rustic atmosphere. Every appliance, pot and pan you would need to cook family meals is provided and in good working order. The cottage was very clean and organized. We simply couldn't have had a better stay. We highly recommend it!
Great place to take kids and dogs
Great place to stay, near Lincoln where we love to visit. We explored Crawford Notch this Columbus weekend and it was not far from the house. My daughter loved the place, she brought her dogs and they enjoyed the large side yard and the trails to the Pond and the River. I enjoyed the view of the woods and mountain from the dinning room table looking out toward the back yard. The house was perfect for our group of five but you can fit a lot more people. I liked the third bedroom that contained two bunk beds, that was a surprise. The kids were able to have their own beds. My husband loved all the old furniture and books around the house. What a nice idea you have to label everything and how things work or what is located in each draw. We didn't have to try to figure how things worked or where things were. You thought of everything, even the brochures of places to visit nearby and the guess book explaining the history of the house and how everything worked. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place that has great views, hiking, pond, river and waterfall (we could not find it but could hear it) right on the property. You don't have to leave the property to enjoy all that New Hampshire has to offer. I will stay here again.
