Overview

About the property

The reviews say it all! Location, comfort and that right at home feeling!

If you are looking for a charming farm house in the White Mountains close to shops, restaurants, attractions and has Saco River access with a 400 foot beach, look no further. We've created a home that you will make memories in. The views of the Moat and Chocorua Mountains are beautiful. The house welcomes you to sit out on the farmer's porch and 'sit a spell'. The house has been authentically restored to it's 1860's feel but has today's amenities giving you the best of both worlds. The updated kitchen is open to the family room which has a large wood burning fireplace and TV area. Each of the 3 bedrooms have their own TV's, gas fireplaces, AC's, sitting areas and private bath rooms which makes this house very appealing to a larger family or 3 couples or an in-law situation. The sitting room off of the 3rd bedroom, which had been a rooftop deck, has been enclosed and remodeled to include a pullout couch for extra sleeping, a gas fireplace, a Smart TV, a private deck and entrance and a coffee station with fabulous mountain views. We offer our guests snowshoes to use in the winter so that they can enjoy the 25 acres of fields and woods on the property. In the summer, enjoy the Saco River which is walking distance from our house. We provide inner tubes and beach chairs for you to take to our 400 foot beach. You can rent canoes or kayaks from our neighbor, Saco Canoe Rental, and get picked up and dropped off right here at our beach. We think that you'll fall in love with this property as my husband and I did 15 years ago! Read the many reviews and then decide!

About Linda

I am, by nature a person who likes to make others happy and relaxed. I also like to decorate and enjoy meeting new people. Together, with my husband's building and remodeling talents, I feel like we make a good team and provide a unique place for our guests. We are not your cookie cutter type of rental I can assure you. We've gone the extra mile so to speak to add touches that most other rentals don't as we both feel that you, the guest, will appreciate the time, effort and love put behind this fabulous, historical home. Not many other rentals I've seen do a full blown seasonal décor with snowmen in the winter, scarecrows in the fall and birds and flowers in the spring/summer. We do this as we feel that it reflects the thought, energy and love put behind this home and the care that we have for our guests total experience in the time that they're staying here.

Linda purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Linda chose White Mountains

My husband and I have always loved the White Mountains and knew that someday when our children grew up that we would move up here. When this house came on the market we knew that this would be the right place for us to start dreaming about what we'd do with it. It was built in the 1860's which is something that we really liked as we are into older homes. The 25 acres of fields, woods and the Saco River were the icing on the cake. We had a vision of making this into a small inn with the charm of yesteryear and the amenities of today. We also feel that the location is perfect with the proximity of North Conway village, the many outlets and attractions and the Saco River.

What makes this farmhouse unique

I feel that we are a unique property because we can divide the house into a 2 or 3 bedroom space. The 2 bedroom option would be great for a small family or 2 couples, as we can put the king beds together to make a king bed if needed. If you had a situation that you had your parents or in-laws with you and needed a bit more privacy, the 3rd bedroom is a bit more private from the other two and has a sitting room that looks out to the Moats and Chocorua Mts. for some gorgeous views. It also has a private deck and entrance. The other unique feature is that all of the bedrooms have their own private bathroom, which is something that most rentals houses do not have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this home as an anniversary/birthtday getaway for my parents. From the moment I contacted the owner Linda, she was so nice and made me feel like this surprise would go off without a hitch, and it did.My parents lost their breath when they arrived at this beautiful Noth Conway country home from the moment they pulled in the driveway. The home is so inviting and is decorated so cute, all the rooms are very large and the house is impecably clean. We want to thank Linda for such a nice welcome basket and for her and Jay's hospitality.This is a beautiful house and property inside and out that provides all the comforts of home. It is in such a convinient location and only about 1-1.5 miles away from downtown North Conway. There is so much to do in the area. Thanks again, Linda and Jay for making my parents' NH getway so memorable. We will definately be back for future vacation stays. This vacation home gets 5 stars from us!

Notes:
This house is perfect for 2 small families, 3 couples, a family with an au paire, or an in-law situation. Each bedroom has it's own private accommodations including a private bathroom and sitting area. One of the unique aspects of the house is that if you only need 2 bedrooms we can lock off the 3rd bedroom and charge you accordingly for the space that you are using. Bedroom 3 has a nice sitting room with a fireplace, TV, coffee maker and small refrigerator and deck with a private entrance. It also has breath taking views of the Moat and Chocorua Mts. It has a pullout couch so that you can have a child out in that space. We do have an air mattress if needed for an additional child. Every guests receives a welcome basket with goodies too!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in the farmhouse, the area had something for all generations. Jay and Linda were very friendly and welcoming making the place feel like home. Everything you need from cooking to games was provided and they even went so far as to provide a gift basket and personalized gifts for the children in our group. Thanks again Linda & Jay.

Charming farmhouse; gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a great stay here and deeply appreciated the hospitality of our hosts. Our young children were thrilled by the yard, inside and outside toys and river beach--and asked if we could come back next week. Would highly recommend this property!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Cozy house but also roomy enough to be comfortable for our family of four and our four guests. We enjoyed the rare river front access and my son was happily surprised to find a nearby rope swing. Linda and Jay provided all the necessities plus some very thoughtful extras which really made us feel welcome.

Beautiful cozy country home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Linda and Jay for our stay at your beautiful home. I can't say enough about the attention to detail that has been put into your home. I felt welcomed from the minute I inquired about the house. Linda was wonderful through the whole process, she left my 3 year old niece a goodie bag , which was so kind. My niece loved having her own bedroom, a perfect oasis dedicated to kids . I am very pleased with my experience it was a perfect get away. Thank you.

Perfect--Comfortable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking - all the 5 star reviews don't lie, this place is great!

We stayed with Jay and Linda for a too-short weekend-plus to celebrate ours sons' graduation and get some family mountain time. To sum it up, the house is great; full kitchen, wonderfully renovated/decorated, plenty of space for a large family gathering--it's just comfortable, feels-like-home, from the moment you arrive. The property is beautiful and it is convenient to everything the White Mountains/Conway/N Conway have to offer. We can't wait to come back again.

PS this place would be perfect for a winter ski/board trip as well!!

Thanks Jay and Linda for sharing your property with our family!

Never gets old!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time back to this charming farmhouse with two of the best hosts ever! It is a no-brainer to come back for more!! Everything from cleanliness, decorations, amenities and accommodations are perfect! We loved the new renovation of the couples area! Made it extra romantic to see that gorgeous snow covered mountain view in front of a warm fire! Thank you Linda & Jay for always making us feel welcomed and we especially thank you for our note and delicious basket of goodies!!! See you again next year!!

Our own on the Saco River
Car: recommended

This 1860's, 'Currier and Ives' farm house has been recently remodeled into two warm and cozy attached homes. We have strived to keep the integrity of this period, antique, timber frame home in the decorating and the architecture.

We are located 1.5 miles from the village of North Conway. Story Land is 15 minutes north of us. Echo Lake and Diana's Baths are 10 mintues away for some picturesque swimming and hiking. Come stay with us and enjoy our 'peace of heaven'. We have a 400 foot beach, a fire pit, lawn and indoor games and so much more! This winter, enjoy snowshoeing from your door on 23 acres of woods and fields.

Other Activities: This is a great location as we are close to town but not in the center of it. We have restaurants,grocery stores, banks, a bakery, hairdresser, canoe and kyak rentals, and tennis courts within walking distance. We provide snowshoes and 26 + acres of open fields and wooded paths to enjoy a fun afternoon of outdoor exercise in the winter and beach on the Saco River within walking distance.

Golf: North Conway public golf course is just 5 minutes from us and is open to the public and has a very nice restaurant. It is next to the train station in North Conway.

Ski: Cranmore Mountain, which has been totally updated to accommodate young and old, beginners and pros, tubing, skiing, and a mountain coaster, is only 5 minutes from us! Attitash and King Pine are 20 minutes from us and Loon is 40 minutes away. King Pine is a great ski resort for young children and is family oriented. It has a skating rink, tubing and gentle slopes.
