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.

Why Heather Johnson chose White Mountains


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.

jackson heaven getaway

  • 5 of 5

we love jackson. always have. this property is perfect and rustic. house is well maintained and has a owner occupied feel. great touches to make it feel like home. love the location at the base of black mountain. property is bright and full of natural light. plenty of room downstairs for your guests. master room with office is a great "home base" to work out of. kitchen was well equipped. you must note this is out of the hustle and bustle of north conway. mountain side, true north living. we went into town for supplies and RAN back to the house. lol you have your own quiet peaceful part of the north country. local restaurant is walking distance. neighbors are scarce. exterior picture does it no justice. owner was attentive and a awesome, magnificent place to spend some time. we obviously highly recommend this property and owner. thanks for sharing such a neat place.

ps - the skiing was very inexpensive and prob the best I've had in years.

the restaurant was epic - like you were in your own home town.

Perfect Winter Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, comfortable well cared for home near the base of Black Mountain is a perfect spot for family and friends to spend time together. We skied (both nordic and alpine) without having to use our car to get anywhere, which was very convenient. The kitchen is stocked with everything necessary to cook full meals and the living areas are quite comfortable to relax and enjoy each other's company. We will visit again next season!

Winter Weekend in Jackson

  • 4 of 5

We went to Jackson for a winter weekend to get out and enjoy the outdoors in the mountains. Friday night we had family come and join us, my parents and my brother and sister-in-law and their kids came up. It was perfect for us all, the bunk room with the bedroom right off it gave them a home base and my six year old nephew had a blast creating music on the piano (he wasn't half bad. :)) and having a little space of his own. The upstairs living space was cozy but we all managed fine often with a couple people in the kitchen. I will say staying in the master suite did not afford a lot of privacy from the main living area, so we were up early with the kids. :) We spent the day at Black Mountain Saturday and has a blast skiing with the kids and practicing our own skills.

Saturday night, friends came up and we had dinner at the house which was nice to just relax and enjoy the space and laugh.

Then another great day of skiing at Wildcat on Sunday. This is a great location and there was plenty of other things to do if we didn't want to ski we were just excited to hit the slopes. Thanks for sharing your home!

Great vacation rental for all seasons in the White Mountains!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home! We stayed for four nights with another family and had a great time. The location is perfect - close to restaurants, skiing and shopping. Jackson is such a charming town! The home offered beautiful views and had a fantastic sledding hill right across the street. You can watch the kids from the big front window. The home was clean and had everything we needed. Heather was extremely helpful, had great communication and offered local recommendations. We would love to go back in the summer as the kids are excited to explore the creek out back.

Wonderful get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered at this Jackson house for the holiday together. There were seven of us and a baby. It all worked well. We played games, took turns cooking (kitchen area is small but it works!), went xc and downhill skiing, shoeshoed down by the brook, hiked and relaxed. The wifi was fast/we borrowed the snow shoes that were there/all the cooking paraphenalia and more was there/it snowed and was beautiful!

Two small details that surprised us a little were how close to the road the house was (but it is not a busy road) and the single bed upstairs is off of the master bedroom with no door. These things were probably spelled out in the description but we missed them.

All in all, we so enjoyed the house and the area. Everything was stocked nicely and ready for us. The house was clean and felt homey, with many nice touches, including flowers! Heather was prompt in getting back to us through the whole reservation process and was very accommodating. We would both return to this house for sure and recommend it to our friends!
