You and your family are going to LOVE the feel of this cozy, well equipped home for your vacation. Everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable is right at your fingertips. Please check the reviews, and judge for yourself.

The master bedroom has a warm, comfortable feeling with a new queen bed and plenty of space. The three windows make the views over Howard Pond spectacular. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a set of twin bunk beds, also with plenty of space. You bring your own sheets, but all other bedding is there including pillows. (I will provide sheets upon request) The full bath has an oversized shower with a seat for comfort. All towels are included. The eat in kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, keurig, and all other comforts of home. The large living room has comfortable furniture and an open concept. Wood accents the home from floor to ceiling. You have a private balcony which overlooks Howard Pond for relaxing with your glass of wine or coffee. The dimmers on the overhead lights help you set the mood your looking for.

This home is very quiet and peaceful after a long day of skiing, riding or snowmobiling. Cable and wifi are included.

I will reduce the price greatly for a seasonal or monthly rental.

Just inquire.

Thank You, Tracey

About Tracey Moir

I built this home on the back lot of my lake front log cabin. Located in a four season area, it is a great vacation spot. Sunday River Ski Reaort is minutes away. There is easy walkable access to a public beach on Howard Pond. Views from the porch are spectacular.

Tracey Moir purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Tracey Moir chose Hanover

Having a home in a four season resort area has been a dream for me, and i would love to share this experience with you.

What makes this cottage unique

This an easy 12 minute drive to Sunday River Ski Resort, yet provides the quiet evening you deserve at home. The balcony allows you to enjoy your cocktail outside for total relaxation while enjoying the tranquil environment.

It's a one minute walk to the town beach during summer months. Great swimming and kayaking. Trout and salmon can be caught in Howard Pond. The foliage in the fall is spectacular.

Amazing chalet in the mountains with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place and will be back. Everything was better than advertised:

1. The place was fully stocked with all utensils and non-perishables that you would need

2. It was about 15min from Sunday River (where we were skiing)

3. Paul and Tracey are among the nicest people we have met

Will definitely be back up there

Nice home, not very private

  • 4 of 5

I would have given the home a 5 star review as it was very clean and well maintained; however, the rental is actually a guest house that the owners will enter from time to time without notice. The owners use the garage which requires entry through the first floor.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to right a review. Your comment is very misleading so please allow me to clarify. At no time did we, or would we ever enter the home while rented. We do use the garage which is located below the home, and enter the garage with an opener. Even the hallway is kept private for the renters. I would also like to say that during your 6 night stay, we chose to use the garage 3 nights. Thank you

This rental was a warm and cozy space. Tracey and Paul were just as warm. Tracey returned my email questions right away. It was an easy drive to Sunday River,about 15 minutes. Easy access to snowshoeing spots as well.
