Ideal for family reunions, wedding parties, skiing, hiking groups, canoe trips, Fryeburg Fair and Foliage peekers, etc. Rooms are all tastefully done. Snowmobile trail across the street. Lots of privacy for couples as most rooms have private baths. Within mile from Conway Lake and Saco River. Some rooms have gas fireplaces as does the the living room.
Home Away From Home: It has a huge kitchen/dining room and is in wonderful shape with nice bedrooms with many private baths. It has a nice back yard for volley ball, picnics or sitting in the hot tub. There is a lot of room and we may be able to accomodate more than 18 people with advance notice. Several rooms are large enough to add twin beds as needed.
We stayed here for a big group only for one night. There was enough room for everyone, if you have a group that's okay roughing it - like sleeping on an old mattress on the floor. Was very disappointed that we had 10 people flying in from all across the country, and on the morning before checking in I was informed sheets and towels were an extra $200 - for just one night. Kind of thought it's implied that we would need sheets to sleep in a towels to shower with. Also there weren't the little things like trash cans on the top floor. This place was fine for a night, but wouldn't stay there for too much longer.
This is our 2nd year staying at this house! It is the only house in the area that can accommodate such a large party, allows dogs, has a hot tub, private bathrooms and large kitchen/eating area. We have no complaints. Everything was great! Contrary to what other people have said, having the Landlord next store was not a problem. We didn't even know she was there. She allowed us our privacy and I didn't even see her until the end of our stay. HOWEVER, it wouldn't have mattered because she is a really nice person and gave us tips on a wonderful hiking place on our way home. I would definitely recommend staying here.
We had a great time. House and owner where perfect. . Definitely will b returning
Rented the house for a week for an annual new years trip with friends, 15 of us. Worst rental ever
-Problem with heat-- heating system was new, but kept malfunctioning. We had to go to the basement to reset it several times during our stay. But by the time we'd realize it was off the place was freezing and took several hours to heat up again
-On a busy street, noisy inside the rooms
-No welcome sheet explaining internet password or general house info
-bathrooms could use updating. Carpets throughout were dingy, need replacing
-no trash containers in bathrooms, which was odd since there is a clause in the agreement that only toilet paper should be flushed due to the septic system. No signs to that effect in the bathrooms, either
-no hall bathrooms, except on 3rd floor. On the 1st and 2nd floor you go through a bedroom to get to a bathroom
-several times we had to run the dishwasher twice because the mechanism to release the detergent malfunctioned, never released the soap. So inconvenient given the number of dishes created by a large group. Also, the dishwasher door nearly falls off the hinges and needed propping
-kitchen had everything we needed, but was sparse- no wooden spoons, only one cutting board, etc. kitchen is not well-stocked
-there is a washer and dryer, but you can't use it. It's behind a padlock in the kitchen
Worst part was that four days after we left, during which there were some record breaking cold temps, the owner e-mailed to say she was keeping the security deposit. She claimed windows were left open and caused pipes to freeze.
First of all, my husband and I walked through the entire house three times before we left, and there were no windows open. It's possible that people left storm windows open, that I don't know. There were issues with heat, as mentioned above, once the heat came back on, it got pretty hot.
The owner lives next door, literally attached to the rental. You can hear her dogs bark in the kitchen. After we left, she walked through the rental property and did not notice windows open either. Four days later, she blames pipes freezing on us. We left the heat at 50, per the agreement. If the heat was on and working properly (which I doubt) why would pipes freeze? Also, in temps that cold, a prop owner (esp. one living next door) should take steps-- turn up heat, keep faucets at a drip. Don't try to pin your own negligence in the care of the property on the last renter
I stayed here in 2011. The house is beautiful, but it is not advertised that it is owner occupied. In the kitchen- you can hear constant dog-barking. They did not inform us that the Keurig was broken before we came- which was kind of annoying- because we would have brought our own- and we consequently had no coffee. The property was clean, large, updated and homey- but the hot tub is a bit of a walk from the rental- it can be very cold trying to get there and back. All in all- the place was great- but I just figured that the owners would be more forth-coming with the fact that they live in the building.
We all had a wonderful time here but what we didn't like was the location of the house right next to the very busy and loud main road. We had many kids with us so it was little dangerous. There was a great big yard next to the house but we wished that the accsses to the yard would be from our side of the house (part of the house is for renting). The house itself was old but very clean and spaciuos. Conway is a beautiful town and there are a lot of things to do.
We are close to Conway Lake, Saco River, Fryeburg Fair, shopping on the North Conway 'strip', outlet stores at Settler's Green, downhill skiing at Cranmore, Shawnee Peak and King's Pine, cross country skiing at Mount Washington Valley in Conway, Monkey Trunks, Sacobound, snowmobile trails, the Kangamagus Highway for hiking, snow shoeing, crosscountry skiing, site seeing.
