About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bath, sleeps 8, open floor plan and family room

You know that North Conway is a vacation destination for a thousand reasons! In the winter, we have six downhill ski mountains, including Attitash, Bear Peak, Cranmore, Wildcat, Black Mt, King Pine, and Bretton Woods all nearby. There are also plenty of places for cross-country skiing.

During the summer, there's a million acres of National Forest, with trails for all abilities. Try a canoe ride down the Saco River, or bring your motorboat for Conway, Silver, or Ossipee Lakes! Have kids? Bring them to StoryLand - and watch their jaws drop!

Fall foliage is to breath-taking... and so is the tax-free outlet shopping! There are fabulous golf courses, restaurants, and specialty shops as well. This is an area that you'll come back to many times a year.

Wireless Internet, Digital Cable, 2 Flat Panel TVs, washer and dryer

Filthy and Malodorous

  • 2 of 5

We had to make a last minute change to our lodging accommodations and had high hopes for this home based on the previous reviews. Unfortunately, the place was very dirty and malodorous. The couches were stained and dirty. Our party was fearful of sitting on them. The upper level smelled of smoke and the lower level smelled musty. With that being said it is a nice location and the bathrooms seemed to be recently updated.

Wonderful Fall Location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay! The house was clean, comfortable and spacious. The location was easy to find and great for enjoying the White Mountains. We hiked Cathedral ledge and enjoyed Echo lake. We also enjoyed a fire in the fire place one night. Hope to stay at this house again in the future!

Bel endroit tranquille avec beaucoup d'espace

  • 4 of 5

Nous y sommes allés avec mes enfants et mes parents en juillet. C'était la 2e fois que nous y allions. Le chalet est très confortable et il y a beaucoup d'espace. Il ne manque rien. Il est très bien situé à proximité du village, des outlets et des montagnes. Il y a cependant beaucoup d'encombrement dans les placards et les tiroirs et il manque un peu d'entretien (planches à changer sur la gallérie et pas de moustiquaire dans les chambres donc on ne peut pas ouvrir les fenêtres pour faire circuler l'air en temps de grande chaleur).

Fantastic way to spend the 4th

  • 5 of 5

• Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ?

The description of the listing is very accurate. The layout, amenities, and location were exactly what I expected when I booked this rental. Anne was very helpful, communicated extremely well, and made the process as simple and easy as possible.

• Was the property clean and well-maintained?

The property was maintained extremely well and cleaning material were available onsite for any cleaning issues we felt that needed to be addressed. We were the first family to rent the property this season, but our very minor feedback has been communicated to the property owner.

• Did the owner provide good customer service?

Anne went above and beyond to provide quality customer services. She is honest, upfront, and very friendly. We spoke multiple times over the phone prior to my stay and she made herself available during my stay to answer any questions I had. She a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to renting from her again.

• Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives?

I would recommend this property to both my friends and relatives. We actually had a family get together while at this rental and my family really enjoyed it. The only complaint/suggestions they had was how hot it got in the house during the night. I think providing fans for the upstairs rooms would alleviate the issue. The finished basement was really cool at night and don’t require fans at all.

• What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike nearby?

I enjoyed all the attractions I took part in, such as but not limited to:

o Diana Hot Springs

o Schouler Park

o North Conway Outlets

o Echo Beach

We spent a lot of time at the actual rental, but we did make an effort to get out and enjoy the attractions and amenities.

Beautiful property, felt like home right away

  • 5 of 5

Great location for hiking and water-play in summer, skiing in winter; house was well-maintained and clean, with plenty of space- the ideal vacation home. Well-stocked. Owner responded promptly to emails.
