|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Lovely single family home with 4 bedrooms (one is a den with a queen bed, sitting area, and fireplace) and 2.5 baths. Living room is sunken with gas fireplace and is open to Kitchen. There is a covered porch off of kitchen. The kitchen was completely updated in Spring 2012 with light cherry cabinets, Quartz solid surface counters, and stainless steel appliances, All three rooms have panoramic unobstructed views across the valley to the mountains to include from left to right - White Horse Ledge, Cathedral Ledge, Humphrey Ledge, Mount Washington, Black Mountain Range, Mount Bartlett, Mt. Kearsarge North, Black Cap (Cranmore Mountain).
This is a great place for people to both stay at home and enjoy the views while others go off shopping at the outlet stores (less than a mile away), or hiking (pick a mountain), or skiing.
The skiing mountains to choose from include Cranmore, Attitash, King Pine, Shawnee Peak, Black Mountain, Bretton Woods and Wildcat. A great feature during the winter months is the driveway is level and there is an attached two car garage so you don't slip and slide back to the rental! There is a mudroom and laundry area are off kitchen leading into two car garage. Master suite with views of Mount Kearsarge from your queen bed - 3/4 bath off of master. 1 bedroom has bunk beds and another has a single bed with trundle bed. There is a queen bed in the den that also has a fireplace. 1.5 miles from the old village of North Conway.
Carl and I live on the seacoast of New Hampshire and enjoy hiking, skiing, and sight seeing in the white mountains with our three children. Carl is an oceanographer with NOAA and I am a Realtor and reservist in the Coast Guard. When we are not on the Seacoast, we are either travelling to my parents on Cape Cod or heading up to the White Mountains.
Molly Kammerer purchased this house in 2012
Over the years we have rented homes on homeaway. In fact, we rented them in the White Mountains and while the homes were wonderful, we always wanted to be a little bit closer to the down town. This property has that and more.
Being just down the street from the outlet malls and under two miles from the Village of North Conway was wonderful and met our location needs, but to also have unobstructed panoramic views, and a quiet neighborhood were too much to pass up.
So as you can see, we bought the place for location...the condition was lacking! The house was a wonderful executive ranch with grand foyer and a two car garage, but it was dated. When we purchased the property, we rolled up our sleeves, did some work ourselves, and called a number of contractors :-)
The home now has mostly oak floors, two of three updated baths and all repainted walls. It has new drywall in some rooms, and new windows in others. We replaced the furnace and hot water tank and we moved the kitchen from what is now the Den to what was the dining room so that the house was more in tune with a family in the 21st century.
I hope you choose our home and enjoy it as much as we do. Whenever we have a chance to travel up north and sit on the covered porch, we sit there, looking at the views, and contemplate on how lucky we are to live in New England.
We had a lovely stay at this home in a great location! Close to everything but with the beautiful view out the back windows we felt as if we were very secluded from the busy main drag of North Conway. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us and our dogs. The recently renovated kitchen that was well stocked allowed us to very easily cook meals. We hope to stay here again next year!
The only reason I'm giving this one less star is simply because it wasn't as clean as I would have liked. There were places that need to be cleaned but seem to be missed by the hired cleaning staff. For example under the bed in the front bedroom with the fireplace there was a lot of dirt and an old band aid, as well as, the main bathroom had a clump of hair in the shower drain. This would not deter us from staying again but I would recommend a new cleaning staff or more closely reviewing their work.
Additionally, we did not mind having to do our own linens on the last day, however, it was hard to get them all done by the check out time and still have a relaxing final day. We did ask for a late check out and the host was very accommodating.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
My family and I had a great time and the house was fantastic. We especially enjoyed the back porch with the views of Mount Washington. The house is centrally located to plenty of activities, including hiking, canoeing/kayaking, shopping, and amusement parks for the kids (Storyland). A total of four rooms with beds meant that everyone had their own space, and the well stocked and modern kitchen allowed for us to enjoy family meals without having to go out to eat each night. I'm trying to think of something negative to say, but can't think of anything. Oh, except that we saw a small bear walk past the back yard one night, but hey, we're in New Hampshire! I highly recommend this house for anyone looking to stay in the North Conway area.
This house was fantastic for a family trip! The owners have everything you need at the home to make it welcoming and comfortable when you are traveling. The view has got to be the best available for this region. The unobstructed scenery from the backyard is hypnotizing. The home has many beautiful updates inside and we will definitely be returning!
The home is in an excellent location: close to downtown yet on a quiet friendly street. Plenty of room in the house with 4 bedrooms. Plenty of games and videos for the kids. No cable just FYI but hooked up for Netflix/Hulu/etc. Will stay again. Thank you.
Loved the open concept between the kitchen and the living room. We have 2 little kids so the kid gates that were in the basement was huge! We were able to put them across the step so they couldn't climb up and down the steps. Liked having games there for the adults to play (we had brought toys for the kids). There was plenty of space for my husband, my kids, my parents and sister (especially the two full baths that was huge). Still can't get over the beautiful view.
Our stay at this property was fabulous. There were many amenities that made the stay a piece of cake! There was plenty of space for the kids to spread out to play and explore. The house was spacious and set up well. We loved having access to laundry. The private beach access was a hit for everyone, and there were a couple of rafts provided for use as well! Highly recommended!
Sitting in a quiet neighborhood on a bluff with spectacular views overlooking the Mount Washington Valley, we are centrally located in North Conway, with easy access to shopping, skiing, hiking; all that the region has to offer. In Winter we are within 10 minutes to Cranmore, with short drives to a multitude of alpine and Nordic options.
