Overview

White Mountains House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 large loft, 2 full baths, sleeps 8

Almost brand-new, ultra-clean and fully-equipped home away from home. This is our family vacation house that we use for skiing in the winter, hiking in fall, and swimming & kayaking in the 3 ponds during the summer. It sits at the end of a quiet road on Rockhouse Mountain which is on the Conway side of Eidelweiss Village. From here, you are minutes to many private beaches on the pristine Pea Porridge Ponds. These ponds are hidden gems of the White Mountain region. No motorized boats are allowed so the ponds are incredibly clean and safe as well as tranquil. Inside the house, you will enjoy an open, large living room area that connects the kitchen & dining room. Kids can play in the oversized loft , equipped with game tables, Wii and many toys, while the adults unwind below in the living area. In the evenings you can gather outside for a camp fire or grill on the deck and watch the sunset. And, all the amenities of N. Conway are right down the shopping & dining.

Suitability:
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spoke with the homeowner, Michelle, prior to the visit to ask a few questions and our first impression was great. She is friendly and responsive. The house was immaculate upon arrival. Everything we needed was there...linens, beach towels, chairs, toys, restaurant/entertainment brochures etc. The beds were comfortable and the quilts are beautiful. It is a VERY quiet area so it was easy to relax.

The kayaks and pedal boat were fun! Michelle provided life jackets as well in a variety of sizes. We also enjoyed the local train ride, Storyland, long walks, lots of swimming and a few campfires. The beach areas are small, but we only encountered people once or twice during the entire week. The water is unbelievably clean. Although there is a basic map of the area at the house, you sort of have to drive around a bit to find the beaches, but that in itself was a fun adventure.

Michelle returned our security deposit/cleaning fee within a week which we appreciated. Our only suggestion would be to include instructions for using the tv/dvd/Wii. Michelle responded quickly and in one text we had the instructions we needed. All in all, this was a perfect choice for our family. Great homeowners, great house, great location! Highly recommend!

Vacation July 2013

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start. The house was amazing! It had everything you can imagine. Our 9 & 11 year old boys could have played Wii and Ping Pong all vacation. They actually became very good at ping pong by the end of the trip. :) The house was spotless, well maintained. The loft was our favorite. The kids stayed up there and we were up there often just to hang out and watch some of the great movies they had. We also read many of the books they had as well. I could go on and on. I think at the end of the day the communication we had with Michelle (owner) was above and beyond. Her quick replies with our questions and suggestions on attractions etc. were awesome! Thank you for making our vacation a memorable one!! Our family will never forget our experience!

July family visit

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our two daughters, 4 & 8 in July 2012. The house was clean, comfortable and spacious. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and the "extras" offered for our use went beyond the norm: all linens, towels, beach chairs, ping-pong, beach toys, two kayaks and a peddle boat. The large upper loft is a great play space filled with toys, videos and wii-games to keep the little ones busy upstairs while the adults relaxed downstairs. We barbecued most nights and used the fire-pit once to toast marshmallows - which the girls loved. The location is ideal for so many activities. This trip we visited Storyland, Santa's Village, the Kancamagus Highway, Mount Washington and did a trip on the North Conway Scenic Railway. There is so much more to do the list is too long to note here. This was in between kayaking, swimming and playing on the small private beaches on the three ponds in the private community the house is in. We used them all but our favorite was Thusis beach. This is a popular vacation area so there are plenty of restaurants, many catering to families, our favorite meal this trip was at the Black Cap Grill which serves generous portions of well cooked delicious food. We would recommend this home to our friends as a well priced comfortable, well located place to stay for a White Mountains Vacation.

Great base for hiking the trails in the White Mts.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home the end of July for a week; traveling with my husband and myself were our 15 year old son and 17 year old daughter. We wanted a home that would be as centralized as possible to minimize travel time to the various hikes we wanted to take, and this fit the bill. Having 2 bathrooms when traveling with a teenage girl is such a big plus! Although it cools down at night, we experienced 2 really hot days and were thankful for the air condition units. Except for those 2 days, the fans that were provided were perfect for comfort. Also, this was one of the few homes that did not aggravate my allergies. Although there were just the 4 of us, another 2 people could have comfortably stayed here.

This nicely decorated home is close to a large beautiful pond where you can use the owners kayaks (1 single person and one double) as well as a paddle boat. Both children's and adult life vests are provided. There are an abundance of elementary aged toys and games, making this a perfect stay for a family with young children. Our teens were glad that the house has Wi-Fi. This also enabled us to watch the 2 TV shows (a day later) we enjoy. They enjoyed having the loft to themselves to play Wii. The ping pong table in the basement was great for a rainy afternoon. Of course the comfy sofa called to my weary body after hiking up Mt. Jefferson.

Lastly, the owners are more than accommodating in answering any questions you may have with a personal touch lacking from a rental agency.
