Private, 4- Season Waterville Estates Getaway

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,700 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Bright, open-concept, 3-bedroom home located on 2-acres off quiet dirt road in Waterville Estates. Beautiful wooded views from every window of our 1700 sq. ft. home. This 4-season getaway is private yet minutes away from resort amenities and local attractions-a great place to have fun and escape!

Located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire, just 2 hours from Boston, there is plenty to do just outside our door–no matter what the season! Minutes from the Community Recreation Center you’ll have access to two outdoor pools/two indoor pools/hot tubs, basketball and tennis courts, gym, sauna, game room and locker rooms–along with poolside food and beverage service during the summer. You’ll have access to the Center through 3 guest passes–extra passes can be purchased ($22 per day on holiday weekends, $20 per day on the weekends, $10 per day during the week, children under 7 get in free with an adult pass). Also within Waterville Estates is Campton Mountain, a small but mighty ski mountain with a lodge/restaurant and roaring fires during the winter–a great family place to ski. We are also 15 min. from Waterville Valley Ski Area and many state parks that are great for hiking.

Our home includes a large entry way/mudroom with laundry–a great place to leave wet ski boots and hang jackets as you walk in the door. Two steps up lead to the main living area of the house which consists of an open layout with the kitchen, dining area and living room–so there is plenty of room to spread out. The first floor has one bedroom with two twin beds and a full size bathroom. A large leather couch and flat screen TV offers a great place to relax by the warm wood stove after a long day of hiking or skiing! Cathedral ceilings give it that bright, airy feel, as you look up to the 2 additional bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The bunk room has two bunk beds with plenty of floor space for an air mattress if needed and the master bedroom has a master bath.

Sleeping arrangements:

Bedroom 1 - 2 twin beds

Bedroom 2 - 1 bunk bed

Bedroom 3 - 1 queen bed

Common area - 1 sofa bed

Check in/out times:

Check-in 3pm

Check-out 10am

Things to note:

Please bring your own bath and pool towels - everything else will be provided!

Campton Ski Mountain does not make its own snow so depends on mother nature - so please ask if it is open if you plan on skiing there during your stay.

House rules:

No smoking

Not suitable for pets

No parties or events

You must be 25 years old to rent

Please enjoy your stay and respect our home as if it were your own!

About Chris Bernardi

We live in Massachusetts and bought this as a vacation home because we love the White Mountain area of NH. We have made many updates to make our home away from home. We hope you enjoy the area and all of the amenities that it has to offer.

Chris Bernardi purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

Million dollar rec center, close to the highway, quiet off mountain area but still close to major ski areas and other outdoor activities to enjoy.

This house was exactly as advertised. Beds were very comfortable and the house has everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. Living room has many windows with lots of natural light and it is just a great relaxing space. Communication with the owner was excellent. The community center has lots for kids to do, we went to the pool and the kids had a great time! Short ride to the mountain...just an overall great time! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect weekend getaway spot! We stayed for 3 days/3 nights and chose it based on its close proximity to Laconia for Bike Week. The condo was clean, spacious, and included all the amenities. There was more than enough room for all 6 people in our group to sleep comfortably. A great perk of this condo was the Rec Center. We spent each night by the pool and in the lounge area. At the end of our stay, everyone agreed… we will definitely be renting here again!

Cozy Abode

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo was great for us. Chris was very responsive to my inquiry and subsequent questions. The Condo was very clean, comfortable and plenty of space for we 5 adults. The Rec Center was a very quick drive, had lots of services, restaurant, lounge and multiple indoor and outdoor pools, including an over 21 outdoor pool which was perfect for our group.
