Why Anita Colby chose White Mountains

I bought the land and built the mountain house over the course of 4 years. I wanted a mountainside location in a safe area so that I didn't have to worry to let my kids play outside. They learned to ski at King Pine which is only a mile or so away.

What makes this house unique

The house is located in the middle of a 5 acre forested spot, so quiet and private.

The house was rustic, I loved the windows! The property itself was rough, a lot of boulders.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the home in Madison, NH. There were 5 adults and 1 child. It was close to North Conway, a beautiful drive and only 45 minutes away from Scarborough Beach in Maine which ended up being another destination. Anita was helpful and answered any questions we had. She didn't steer us wrong with her recommendation to the restraunt on the Purity Resort, our meal was delicious!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a get away from all the hassles and jobs. We found this place and thought it looked perfect! And indeed it was! It is nestled in the woods with the feeling of seclusion yet so close to everything you could want. Close to trails for hiking, great restaurants, movie theatre, and shopping!

My husband and I had the greatest stay and have to say a special thanks to Anita as it was exactly how she described and everything was accessible and just made our stay relaxing and we were able to just unwind and enjoy ourselves. We did't want to leave ! We felt refreshed when we headed back to our lives. The getaway was what was needed and the accommodations were just the perfect setting for it all.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

First off, I would like to say, "Thank You Sincerely Anita"!!!! Not only were you on point in getting back to my questions before the rental but also as a responsible owner you called us the day of our arrival to make sure we got in okay and that the house was in order and to please call if we had any issues and/or questions. The house was absolutely beautiful with its rustic charm as well as very clean and well maintained. There was not one thing that we needed except going grocery shopping. The location of the house was easy to get to and so tranquil, it was perfect to sit back and relax on the back porch. We never got to use the front porch nor the grill but all in all it was just as you stated in your description plus more. We spent all of our time in Conway (20 min ride) riding the rivers with the kids and when we returned it was to settle down and relax for the adults on the porch and the kids did their own thing just lounging in the living room. We lit up the fire pit every night while there and even heard a pack of coyotes howling after midnight in the distance. There were 9 of us and even so there was still room as the kids decided to share beds with one another. My mother, sister and her family are already requesting to make the reservations for next year. I would definitely recommend this house for the perfect getaway. Thank you again Anita for your hospitality and sincere consideration. The Cruz-Carrero Family.

The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough!! My family and I can't wait to return this summer. I have been renting for several years and can honestly say this house is the best we have stayed in. It's clean and it's in a remote location (but only minutes from our favorite swimming spot - Silver Lake). Anita is very pleasant and great to deal with.

The perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect retreat! The cabin is clean and cozy. The lay out works for 2 families or just a quiet retreat on your own. There are hills for the kids to climb on and a short drive to Conway. The kitchen has a new stove and microwave- and plenty of utensils to make your meal. The beautiful stone fire place is perfect on a snowy night or a cool fall day. Anita is easy to work with- and makes renting a breeze. Get out of the craziness of Conway- and relax in nature the way a vacation should be!

Perfect Weekend in Madison!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my friends and I had used this site to find a house to get away for the weekend, and I have it say that we nailed it on the head picking this house! Not only was it an amazing deal, but everything was set up just the way it described. It easily fit our group of 8 with room to spare! We ended up spending the weekend cooking and being lazy and just having a damn good time. Saturday night, we made our way to the King Pine Ski place (it really was just a mile down the road) and did was awesome night tubing. It was perfect. There's not really much I can say except good things. Highly reccommend renting with Anita - I'm sure we'll be doing it agin as well!
