About Nancy Willis

My husband and I love to travel and are attentive to the unique features of the places that we stay. We have always dreamed of building our own home and 4 years ago we found this beautiful property in Franconia NH with gorgeous westerly views of the mountains and designed and built our home for this property. Every day we feel like we are on vacation. Now we want to share it with others.

Nancy Willis purchased this house in 2010

Great house, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your house with us. We were in NH for a weekend of hiking and it was perfect. The kitchen and open layout worked well for hanging out post hike. The house was super clean too. Thanks!

Great Winter Getaway

We had a wonderful stay at the house. It's well kept up, clean and had everything we needed. The view was gorgeous and our whole family greatly enjoyed our time there. We'll be back! Thank you Nancy and Tom!

Lovely home in Franconia

  • 4 of 5

Great for a large family. This home fit our needs very well once we figured out the sleeping arrangements. We were 2 parents, 2 grandparents and 3 children in the area for a long weekend wedding.

The home was very clean. The owners were very attentive.

Immaculate, spacious, breathtaking views and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

I can't find the right words to describe this amazing home and its perfect location. The home is bright, airy and spotless. The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen...gourmet. A dream to simply eat in, let alone cook in. So much is provided, even a huge array of cookbooks (and ovens!).

I still daydream about our trip. The hikes, roasting marshmallows by the firepit, or having a peaceful cup of coffee in the morning with my husband while sitting on the porch looking at those miraculous mountains took every piece of stress that was absorbed throughout the year.

Our 2 young children had room to roam and play. The free Netflix came in super handy at the end of an action packed day to just chill out and watch a great movie together without any distractions or bedtime schedules.

We can't wait to visit again. The owners couldn't have been any more gracious. Wonderful, wonderful people. A perfect family vacation with lasting memories had by all during the summer of 2016. Thank you.

Gorgeous home, amazing views, excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three kids (ages 3, 7 & 10) spent a week at this home in August, 2016 and our entire stay was excellent. We've been renting homes for the last 6 years in Cape Cod and New Hampshire, and this property was our best experience. It's rare that a home "lives" up to its online listing, whereas this house was more impressive in person.

The owners Nancy & Tom were friendly, helpful, and responsive both during and before our visit. When we arrived the house was clean...emphasis on CLEAN. Additionally, nothing about this house presented like a rental, rather, it felt like a very nice home (quality furniture, decor, appliances, etc) that had been extended to our family. The floor plan was open, but cozy, and the home was situated on a mountain with amazing views everywhere - downstairs, upstairs, pulling out of the driveway. Also, a very large rear deck made it easy to soak up the outdoors, and a fire pit conveniently situated in the backyard was ideal for smores after dinner, and cocktails after the kids' bed time.

Big thumbs up for this property!

beautiful home with a few quirks

  • 4 of 5

Great home, new and clean and quiet, high ceiling in main room with great view of gorgeous sunsets. But... no regular TV reception, poor Internet connection, and many appliances with a bit too much "personality." Basement bedroom was dusty, strong chemical smell. But... owners are friendly and eager to correct any problems.
