Overview

White Mountains House Rental Photos and Description

Large, Luxury Home Ideal for Family Vacations or Weddings!! sleeps up to 12

Sleeps 10 in beds, 2 on pull out sofa for a total of 12 in the main house. This home is the perfect venue for family gatherings, both large and small. There are so many things to do at Bretton Woods we couldn't enumerate them all in our summary, but you could spend your entire vacation, here, at the resort. This beautiful acreage can accommodate a large tent for special occasions, with the house being spacious enough for guests to mill about. Enjoy the comfort of arriving in winter by automobile into and departing from a heated 550 square foot garage. The home has four bedrooms with 4 balconies and three additional porches of thick granite. Eight people sleeping in comfortable bedrooms, en-suite baths, and their own temperature controlled radiant floor heat. Two to 4 more people can be accommodated on a couch pull-out bed in the private den w/large flat screen TV, and other couches are available.

The home sits 300 feet back from any roads so it is very quiet and a shuttle to the ski area picks up at the end of the driveway.

Gas fireplaces in the Family Room and the Master suite ( 700 square feet), will give you a quick warm up after skiing. *Note: Woodburning fireplaces are not available for use after May 1st..

A second floor laundry room is ready to dry your ski clothes in a Maytag dryer or steam cabinet which will take the clothes on hangers or laying down on screen shelves.

A beautiful new FIRE PIT and an outside grill are used year round with the grill being gas fed from the house gas system.

This home sits 200+ feet above the Valley floor in the middle of the National Forest. The Ski area is visible and views of Crawford Notch and Mt. Washington are visible from some rooms in the winter. We have a large resort here built in 1901-02. A Donald Ross golf Course is available for play as well as an 1890 nine hole Links course. There are many, many recreational amenities here, and also in the valley and surrounding areas.

This 5500 sq.' house has a separate apartment over the garage with a private, outside entrance which is located at the end of the house. This apartment is used by the owner's caretaker, whom has been a custodian of the home for over ten years and is an excellent source for any unforeseen issues that may arise during your stay with us.

About Maggie Greenwood

Owner is a retired Airline Captain and USAF fighter pilot. I have 4 sons, seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. My wife of 53 years passed away suddenly 18 months ago, So, I am rearranging my life by traveling more and still spending some time at Bretton Woods skiing which was why we came here. My late wife, Pat, picked Bretton Woods over any other place in the world to retire to and she had 18 wonderful years living here.

Maggie Greenwood purchased this house in 2005

Why Maggie Greenwood chose White Mountains

We designed and built this home here on this site because Pat wanted a view of Mountains and trees and no views of man-made things.We desired to be across the valley from the ski area because it is much quieter with much more sun in the winter. Slopeside has too much noise from snow making and grooming every night.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits here are that one lives in a wilderness area with abundant wildlife and yet one has every amenity to really enjoying life. In addition this resort is the only ski area in New Hampshire that has development restrictions so that only so many places can be built here. There are currently just 387 units ( condos, duplexes, homes) here and only 900 more can be built.

Magical Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home as both accommodations for four couples for the weekend of our son's wedding at the Omni Mt. Washington Resort, as well as the venue for the rehearsal dinner for 36 guests and an open house for 110 guests the night before the wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the decision. The rental agent and the owner were more than accommodating and were genuinely excited for the home to be used for such a happy occasion.

The front yard/garden area was the perfect place to set up tables for the dinner. We had 5- tables for 6 and 2- tables for 4 with six cocktail tables interspersed between them. The area was flat and we had more than enough room. In fact, there would have been enough room for twice that amount of people. (Rentals were provided by Abbott Rental in Littleton, NH and Catering was provided by Chef Joe's Catering in Franconia, NH- both come highly recommended). There was plenty of room in the dining room with the table, sideboard and a rented 6' banquet table to provide 17' of buffet space. We hosted the wine/dessert open house for 110 guests immediately after the rehearsal dinner and the flow of the house/patios/lawn area was perfect. The stereo system in the livingroom was powerful enough to reach all the entertaining areas and when our son played guitar and sang, the room provided wonderful acoustics .

Unfortunately, with such a busy weekend, we were not able to take advantage of the generously sized whirlpool tub in the master bath with the gorgeous view of the ski mountain.

This property is clean, private, quiet, beautifully designed to capture the mountain views and the grounds lend themselves to enjoyable outdoor living/events.

We thank the owner for all he did to make us feel welcome and at ease during such a whirlwind weekend!

Luxury and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned home from celebrating our parents' 50th wedding anniversary at this beautiful home. We were greeted upon arrival with champagne, fresh fruit and flowers. These little details were such a lovely touch to begin our vacation week. All twelve of us (6 adults and 6 children) paired up to enjoy 5 separate bedrooms each with a private, full bath. The house is certainly big enough for such a large crowd. The beds were actually comfortable with everyone enjoying a restful sleep - even mom and dad. The location is secluded enough for the privacy you desire yet close enough to be a quick shuttle ride to the hotel. The home is simply gorgeous with multiple fire places, beautiful views and an owner that could not be kinder and easier to deal with. Don't miss an opportunity to rent here. You will be so pleased you did!

Memories Made

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to celebrate Christmas with good friends and start a new Christmas tradition for our two families. This home is amazing and the photos do not do justice to this house. It is beautiful, equipped with anything you could want or need and so well maintained. It is more a home than a rental! The welcoming fruit basket was a great surprise! Seven adults had more than enough room to enjoy themselves whether finding a quiet corner to read, watching the Patriots on the High Def TV with surround sound, or just relaxing listening to Christmas Carols while looking at a 12 foot fresh cut tree with hand blown crystal ornaments. We also took advantage of the amenities at the Mt. Washington Hotel, dinning, the Spa, and night club. The complimentary shuttle came right up the driveway to shuttle us to and from the hotel. When you call the shuttle just tell them you are at Al’s house! We also took advantage of the shuttle to the ski area for lunch and rock climbing.

We highly recommend renting this home it far exceeded our expectations - you will not be disappointed.
