Great multi-family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Sugar Hill Farmhouse. The home was large and well equipped for our multi-family and multi-generational vacation. The location was perfect, close to every attraction and hiking trail in the white mountains. The adults' favorite adventures were the Mt Washington Auto Road and the Franconia Notch State Park, and the kiddos loved Clark's Trading Post, Mt Canmore Adventure Park, Alpine Adventure's Ziplines, and Whale's Tale Waterpark. I highly recommend this vacation rental and cannot wait to return to the White Mountains next summer!

Lovely home with all the amenities; comfortable sleeping arrangements, plenty of room to congregate as a group or split off in smaller groups. Very close to Cannon Mt! Loved the entire experience. Karen was a great host and totally available for questions. Would like to stay here again!

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this charming Franconia Farmhouse. Plenty of room for multiple families, comfortable, has everything you need and great location! Conquered Bald Mountain, Artists Bluffs, hiked the Basin and Flume Gorge, visited the beautiful Sugar Hill, crossed covered bridges and swam in the river. Of course the kids favorite part was Whales Tale Waterslide Park and just playing outside in the big beautiful yard. Definitely going back!

Charming and cozy!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I brought our kids for the weekend. It was 5 moms and 5 kids. Great location to everything! hiking , water slides, Chutters candy store and swimming in the river. Kids had a blast playing lacrosse and frisbee in the backyard while we cooked in the kitchen and chatted on the front porch. Plenty of room for all of us sleeping wise. At night we played games around the table in the living room. Very family friendly house with plenty of room for kids to have their space and moms to have our space. Best part was drinking coffee on the front porch in the morning. Highly recommend and we are excited to do this again next year!!

Great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

Held a min-family reunion at this property at the heights of 'peeper' season. Its a great property that really was conducive to letting everyone hang out. The family room and huge fireplace makes the perfect spot for cocktails and lies.

The owner was super communicative and responsive. Very helpful and friendly.

We are already talking about the next time we are going to rent this place.
