Our experience at Susan and Dutch's home was, like last year, just perfect. Everything was comfortable, convenient and relaxing. My husband, dog and I will be back next summer! This home and Susan and Dutch's hospitality have made a weekend away in NH a permanent vacation staple!

Lovely little cabin in such a shady area. No need for air conditioning on the hottest days.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is so close to "everything". we never had time hang out in the yard or even use the little kitchenette.

Loved the place! We are into tiny homes and enjoyed staying here. The shower is a little small but the rest worked well. Our dog also enjoyed his trip. Hiking Mount Major is a must!!

Nice little getaway

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is just as described in the ad! Cute, clean and cozy! My husband and I, along with our 2 pups, stayed here for New Years Eve. Susan was very easy to work with; she answered emails and texts and was super friendly! A nice bottle of wine was waiting for us, as were some treats for the pups!

We'll definitely be back!

Had a great time even though we experienced unfortunate weather. Susan was great with providing alternate fun things to do. The trip was very relaxing and we were greater with a bottle of wine on the table as we walked in.

Cute, Clean and Comfortable:

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is just as described in the ad. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and marshmallows for toasting over the fire. It was very nicely decorated, very clean and it had everything we needed for our stay. We really appreciated that the cottage was stocked with coffee, filters, sugar and creamer. It also had all the toiletries, and a hair dryer which was great. Wifi, cable and a DVD player. Nice fenced little yard with a gas grill and a fire pit. Owner supplied firewood. Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare food. Bed was comfortable and they left us plenty on towels. We will definitely be coming back for another visit. I would gladly recommend this rental to my friends.

First impression wasn't bad, small property, small cozy cabin feel in a small house. The pictures are not that current though.

Second impression: After a little bit setteling in is when things began being an issue. The shower had dead bugs and hair in it, the space between the windows and screen was thick with dirt and dead bugs, a strong wind blew some into the house, the carpet felt dirty and after vacuuming it we filled the vacuum cleaner, there was dust build up on the dresser and lamps. Eventhough I only spent about 6 hours a night at the property I became stuffed up and had trouble breathing at night.

While all this was a negative, the owner did stock the house with toiletries and the grill had propane and the fire pit had wood stocked for it. The property was very close to the festival I was working at. The bed was comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and letting me know I needed to update my photo's. I had not updated them since we bought the new couch and new linens. I have now corrected that. I am sorry you felt the house was not clean, it was thoroughly cleaned by a cleaning company and inspected by me prior to your arrival. The rug was also new so not sure why you found dust in it during your stay. If you had contact me with your concerns we would have sent a housekeeper over. We have never had a bad review and many comment how clean the house is. We love what we do and take pride in offering a great rental. We have many return guests and 31 great reviews on another site Here are just some of the many reviews we have for the house. Nina: July 2015 Great communication with Susan leading up to our arrival. When we got there there was a bottle of wine and marshmallows ready for the fire pit! A great way to ease into our vacation. Clean and comfortable, it also has a great location - a very short drive to everything we wanted to do in the Lakes Region (and now we're thinking... it would only be a short drive to Gunstock!)We had a wonderful time! Looking forward to staying during ski season! Kim: This lovely little cottage was just as described. It is in a great position for exploring the region. Communication from Susan and Dutch was perfect. They let us check in early and on arrival we were greeted by a bottle of wine and a large variety of snacks. We'd happily re-visit. Andrea: : Clean, nice to have wireless, TV and DVD player. Fenced in yard was a big plus, and it was great to be able to bring our dog with us. Susan was readily available--very helpful. Short driving distance to restaurants, stuff to do. Marissa: : spent three days and two nights at the house for a quick, peaceful vacation. It was exactly what me and my partner were hoping for! Susan and Dutch are as hospitable as they come. I'll definitely be coming back. As you can see guests love the house and feel its a great value. The house has always gotten great reviews!
