About Heather Johnson

Our parents bought this land, designed and built this home around 1971. We commuted to Jackson from Marblehead, MA almost every weekend during ski season and spent many summers here growing up. Our family moved here in 1977 full time and built on a large addition with extra bedrooms and deck. Our first time skiing was across the street at Black Mountain- at age 3. Actually 3 generations of family have grown up skiing at Black Mt. We learned to love swimming in the ice cold rivers and found some great swimming holes to visit. Now many years later, my sister and I call this our 2nd home/part-time rental. In 2011-2012 this house underwent a complete top-to-bottom rehab with all new paint, carpet, lighting, flooring, appliances, furniture and more. The exterior of the house had a complete cleaning and was re-painted. We ski, hike, walk, swim, eat out and see friends in and around the Jackson area. It's a place we love to come to for fun and relaxing and are sad when we have to leave.

What makes this house unique

If your 'to do' list is long, then you might find that the fresh country air is what you need to relax and rejuvenate. Kick back on the deck or watch the day go by from the Adirondack chairs and see how fun it is 'to do' nothing! Don't be surprised if you sleep like a log. The babbling brook will lull you to sleep.

Perfect mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

This Jackson home is beautiful! You couldn't ask for a better location. With the stream run ing through the backyard and the mountain across the street, it's lovely. You are just a short drive from so many fun things to do. The house is spotless and Heather has thought of everything you might need while away. I'm looking forward to our next trip.

Love this place.

  • 4 of 5

This house has everything you want and need: views, comfortable chairs, fully equipped kitchen, lovely back deck and grill, bunk room for the kids to chill and "get away," place to roam and explore, dark skies for star gazing, zero traffic though it's close to the road, and access on foot to hikes, skiing, the village of Jackson for good coffee and the pure mountain air.

The layout is not totally convenient in that the deck and grill are on the lower level and kitchen/dining/ living is on upper level if you are doing a lot of outdoor cooking, but this is just a summer issue. We all loved this place, including our friends who live in Jackson who came for dinners.

Very nice experience!

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very quaint contemporary style house on the hillside across the road from Black Mountain in Jackson. Nice quiet area not far from shopping, hiking, or golf. May seriously consider a return trip!

Great Mountain Home adjacent to the White Mountain Region

  • 5 of 5

My family of five really enjoyed our stay at this home. It was central to all the attractions we visited (Santa's Village, Kangamangus, Cog Railway, Mt Washington Auto Tours, Pinkham Notch State Park and the Tuckerman's Ravine Trail). The home was clean and what we expected and a good value for the region. Plenty of household items allowed us ease of use from the kitchen to the Grill everything is here for you. Heather is a great host and was very responsive and always ready to help. For winter renters Black Mountain Ski area is 1/4 mile away. The home has wifi and you will have good LTE from Verizon in addition to the wifi. We had six devices on the wifi and speed was not an issue. We did not watch TV but they had two and a DVD & VHS set up.

The house has quirks but overall on our next trip up to the White Mountain Region we will likely stay here again.

Thanks for a great vacation.

Wonderful home for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We love our time in Jackson, and especially love staying in this wonderful home. Heather is a very gracious and considerate owner, and our families had another successful StoryLand 'pilgrimage' this year. The kids especially love playing in the stream below the property, and eating the raspberries off the bushes in back. The sleeping arrangements are terrific for the 8 of us, with lots of flexibility for restless kids, snoring spouses etc.

Heather, thanks for the great visit once again - we can't wait to make it back, hopefully this winter!
