Why Gaynor Atkinson - Owner/ manager chose White Mountains

You'll not find another property as good as this one for the price in this area, and there is pool availability. Light the wood fire in the large great room in the winter and relax after a great day skiing - great gathering room for groups. The nearest slope can be reached by a gentle downhill ski of 75 yards or so to the 'bunny run' which takes you down to all the lifts and the ski lodge, and you can ski back to the house from Two Mile Run or its offshoots in good snow. Alternatively just take the free shuttle bus (we pay for this annually) which can take you to and from the ski lifts (three minutes) as well as many other local places 24/7, so no need to drive after enjoying a few drinks out. Summer activities are abundant - zip-lining through the treetops on a two hour guided tour, go kayaking, canoeing, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, play tennis, or try hiking up Mount Washington which is six or so minutes away by car to the base. Visit the Flume Gorge, or hike gentler trails.

What makes this condo unique

This beautiful home is very near to the ski slopes, walk or ski 75 yards gently downhill to the nearest easy slope, and ski back in to the house off 'Two Mile Run' or its offshoots, in good snow, or alternatively take one of many free shuttle buses to the base and back to the house - they run 24/7. You will be right in the area for cross country skiing too, as well as zip-lining among the treetops year round (ziplining and frisby-golf ((in summer)) three minutes. away) The house is ideally placed for walking or hiking the mountains in the summer, as well as kayaking, canoeing, golf, fishing, antiquing, and many other activities. Also near to restaurants, bars, and loads of other activities. In the spring and summer the white water rafting is nearby, as are hiking trails, golf, frisby-golf, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, tennis, to name just a few of the available activities. In winter, there are dog sled rides at the Omni Mount Washington Hotel, as well as horse-drawn carriage rides most of the year, and of course a wonderful golf course (summer play only) all of which are three to four minutes away by shuttle bus - quick to arrive, free to you, and running 24/7. Many other golf courses n the area within 15 minutes. Also keep in mind that for families with children, Santa's Village, Storyland, and Six Gun City are only 20 minutes away and each of which provide at least a full day of fun rides, and a thoroughly enjoyable day out for the whole family.

Awesome location, plenty of space and bathrooms!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I used this as a base for activities, mountain biking/climbing Mt Eisenhower.

We had everything we needed. The views are beautiful, and we were a stones throw from the Mt Washington hotel, which was fun to explore and enjoyed a cup of coffee on the porch. My only suggestion is that you should bring a fan if you sleep with background noise.

I would definitely rent again and recommend this rental property. It was clean, beds were comfortable, and kitchen had everything necessary (we cooked).

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in the White Mountains, and yes, the nights can be very quiet if you are used to noise. We look forward to your return. Kind regards, Gaynor.

Great Location and very comfortable for a large family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with out extended family. There were plenty of sleeping options for a young family and PLENTY of bathrooms.

The focus of our visit was Storyland with our children and grandchildren and the location could not have been better. Just a 20 min drive down a beautiful scenic road. The condo was both clean and comfortable and we only needed to bring our food because everything else was there. My only disappointment was the outdoor grill. The owner said that gas grills were banned but there was an electric grill available for our use . Our family has always used gas so the electric grill was not something we enjoyed using. Although the owner said no gas was allowed we could see gas grills on the decks of other units in the same complex. So if your not going to be doing any outdoor cooking I would definitely recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Nearby four townhouses (a complete row) were burned down because of renters using a a gas barbecue, so perhaps that explains the issue a little more clearly. Thank you for the nice remarks about the house, and I am so pleased you found it near to the attractions you wanted to see. We do keep the house well stocked with things like slow cooker, blender, all types of utensils, plenty of cutlery and plenty of dishes of all shapes and sizes. We also buy new bedding regularly, so that it is always in good shape and the great cleaning crew makes sure everything including bedding and towels is always immaculate.

Perfect place for large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing. Plenty of space for a larger family gathering to enjoy all that the area has to offer. Everything was well equipped (kitchen, bath, bedrooms, etc) and very clean. The price was extremely reasonable for what you get. We did think there was a pool but really there is not - just directions for paying another hotel 20+ miles away; kids were hoping for a pool but they got over it. Just wanted to make sure others realized there was no pool. Wonderful stay and I would highly recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Actually there are places to swim which are no more than two and six minutes from the house which I did write in the 'Useful Area Information' sheet that I have prepared especially for my guests and which I sent you, as I do for all my guests, before your arrival. There is a pool at the Patio Court which is only six minutes from the house and Lake Caroline which is only two minutes from the house. This information is also up on the wall of the house, displayed prominently. I am glad that you found the property comfortable and well appointed however, and that you thoroughly enjoyed your experience there.

Great ski house - walk to slope

  • 5 of 5

Lovely weekend and perfect weather for spring skiing at Bretton Woods. The house is perfectly set up for a larger group - we were 3 families with school aged kids. The downstairs living area was great for the kids to hang out. The slopes were an easy walk away and so nice to not have to use the shuttle (though that was an option which some of our party used one day to get back home). The only caution is that cell phone coverage is very spotty in this area so make sure you have a paper copy of directions to rely on when arriving.

Gaynor was a pleasure to work with. We hope to rent here again next winter.

Owner's Response: Thank you Orla for the wonderful review. I'm so glad you found the house convenient to the slopes - near to get to but just out of hearing of the snow-guns roaring away all night. I'm so pleased the weather cooperated to make your stay perfect. Kind regards, Gaynor

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Gaynor,

We LOVED the condo!. The space was so perfect for the 10 of us with the 6 adults under 30 downstairs and the 2 couples in their 50s in the upstairs bedrooms. We even enjoyed sitting in the spare room on the main floor when the kids were taking over the fireplace area. The fireplace was such a nice element to the weekend…enjoying breakfast while sitting near a roaring fire . The skiing was excellent…especially Saturday…blue skies all day and the band at the Cave Saturday night was really good. We ALL danced ..a highlight for me, having my 3 sons on the dance floor with me! Taking the shuttle completed the whole experience.

There are just a few items that could be added to the kitchen: cutting board, a few more large serving bowls for salad or pasta type dishes, coasters for the tables, mirrors in the downstairs bedrooms and kindling for the fireplace.

Thank you for helping our family make such a special memory. I doubt we could ever top the time we spent together, but would love to try again next year!

Regards,

The Muller Biciocchi family

Notes:
Not only will you be able to enjoy this house from the minute you arrive and marvel at the mountain views, you can book a spa treatment at the Omni Mt. Washington Hotel three minutes away - just get the free shuttle as many times you like which is available to you 365 days a year and 24/7. Or book a sled dog ride for your family there, or a horse-drawn carriage ride. There is so much to do here you won't find time to do it all in one visit, and you'll love the comfort, size, nice furnishings, comfortable beds with new bedding, new kitchen, and the stunning views from this house. You'll also love that you have a choice - get one of the many free shuttles to/back from the base of the mountain or walk/ski to the nearest ski run 75 yards away, and ski back to the house.
