About Chris

My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful log home as soon as we saw it . It was November and it was snowing. The house was warm and inviting with lovely views looking out every window of the snow settling on the trees that surround the house.We were hooked!

The amazing log construction that's visible inside and out with a stone fire place made from a local quarry provide a very special setting for gatherings with family and friends. This has been a fantastic retreat for our family of 5 and provides endless fun activities all year round!

Fabulous Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is easy to get to, off the main road, close to area ski resorts. It is totally private. The home is beautifully decorated. The living room with wood stove was so cozy, warm and appealing. We kept the stove on just for the ambiance; there's nothing like a crackling fire and wood was plentifully provided. The kitchen is beautifully equiped; the bedrooms extremely comfortable; there was satellite TV, a hot tub, wireless Internet, lots of games, movies, books. The night sky from the deck of this lovely A frame was awash in stars that cannot ever be seen from the city. The mountains were brilliant with fall colors. This was truly a perfect getaway weekend, close to the Fryeburg Fair. We hope to return in the winter for another delightful stay.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house right near Sunday River. Our family is a family of four (with two teens) and we rented it along with another family of four--same aged kids. The house is spacious enough for that size group, and the kids loved being in the loft together. The hot tub was a big hit and so was the ping pong table. This house certainly has all the basics you'd expect plus some really nice features (hot tub, wood burning stove, views) but most importantly the owner, Chris, is so nice and communicative. We got lost getting there and I called her and she stayed with me on the phone to make sure we got there. While we were there I had a few questions and she was a text or call away, making sure our stay was wonderful. She's got great ideas on what to do locally and once you reserve, she will send you an email chock o' block with links to explore. It's a great house, a short drive from Sunday River and the host is wonderful :)

Great Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week reconnecting with our family in this wonderful country home. Easy to find off main road, but very private. Had great views of the Perseid meteor showers last week without any city lights to take away from that experience. Lots of games to play (table tennis, Foosball and other fun games) or relax in the hot tub. Don't worry if you forgot something because this home has everything you need from linens, cookware and utensils. Home has excellent Wifi too. The decor provides you with that "at home" feeling as soon as you walk in the door. Cannot wait to return. Tammy

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had an absolutely wonderful time! It was a delight to communicate with Chris. She was very helpful and genuinely such a sweet person. Thank you Chris for making our stay wonderful!

We booked the vacation house for a 5 day snowboarding vacation with another couple. It sure was great to hop in the hot tub after a long day on the slopes! Amazingly we chose the coldest week of the season, about 30 below at night, but it was still so relaxing once you got in  Sitting in the hot tub and looking out into the woods and the sky was such a delight.

The house was very cozy, especially with the stove lit. As soon as we walked in, we could sense that this is a loved home. It felt just like home. Everything we needed was provided which was great. We were fortunate to be able to bring our dog. We had a blast on the mountain and the house was a perfect place to kick off our shoes, relax and enjoy each other’s company.

Great Ski Week

  • 5 of 5

This house was a nice surprise! When we arrived, the firewood was ready, the house was clean, directions were well written and the surroundings were quiet. The house was a 20 - 25 min drive from Sunday River and after skiing, the hot tub and a night of ping pong and cards was perfect. Thanks for everything Chris, I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy, comfortable, rural, and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time at the cabin. I spent Thanksgiving weekend there with my girlfriend and another couple and it was wonderful. The living room was very cozy and we kept quite warm with the fire and available wood. The TV was great for watching movies and football and the wifi was fast enough to stream. The hottub was great, could get a little tight with more than four people but perfect for four. The downstairs had plently of room for activities and we really enjoyed the ping pong table. The bedrooms were quite homey and comfortable. Having the grill was fantastic as well. It was great being out in the woods. Five stars and I would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5 star review!! November is a beautiful time of year in this neck of the woods. The weather is cool and there usually is some light snowfall. Our home provides a perfect place to slow down and relax. Plenty of beautiful places to hike then come home and enjoy the hot tub and a warm fire. We hope you get a chance to come back again. Thanks! Chris
