Needs improvement

  • 2 of 5

Overall, the house is a modern log cabin with a decent kitchen, furnace, washer and dryer. While we knew it didn't have a water view, it's location in very dense woods made the interior fairly dim even on a sunny day. The kitchen area was fine except for dim lighting over the kitchen table. We moved a pole lamp to the table area to make dining and cross-word puzzles better lit. Some of the living room furniture was beyond second hand with a chair topped by a random 2nd seat cushion covering a ragged and torn original seat was not a proud statement. The living room had dark furniture and a dark rug with no lamps only track lighting which did not offer enough nighttime lighting for comfortable reading. Luckily we had a clamp-on work lamp with us and when we found a broom tucked into the LR corner propped up tightly by the couch, we now had something to attach our light to; probably a previous renter used it there for the same purpose. The down stairs bedrooms had wall lights with bare bulbs and broken blinds in the windows. The upstairs bathroom lighting was so dim it made putting on make up nearly impossible. We found the the consistent use of low illumination bulbs off-putting as the comfort of guests did not seem a concern. The Wifi access was appreciated but there was no TV access except for DVD/VCR players. We felt that given the extensive house rules, the cleaning fee seemed excessive. We opted to use our own sheets and towels except for a few kitchen towels. Suggestion: Outfitting the house with upgraded used furniture and better lighting (beating that drum) would go a long way to providing basic comfort to future renters.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Most of your review is based on lighting and it is good to get this feedback as it is the first that we have had comments on this topic. Log Homes tend to be darker because they don't have brightly painted sheet rocked walls that reflect light. When we built the house we installed 6 skylights to bring in natural light and we installed many lights especially in the kitchen and living room areas. Yes, we have used energy saving light bulbs and we will research the best light bulbs on the market to balance being environmentally conservative and providing comfort for our guests. We will purchase floor lamps for the bedrooms for the 2018 season. We will replace the broken window shade, thank you for informing us about that. We purchased brand new furniture in the spring of 2017. We left the one chair that you referenced- an antique that belonged to my grandmother. We debated removing this chair but several guests have told us that it is a very comfortable chair. We will reconsider removing the chair if it is aesthetically displeasing. We do provide satellite tv and we make ourselves available for contact if anything is not working. You did not contact us regarding the satellite tv so we were not aware that it was not obvious or that you were not able to access it. Thank you again for your review!

Great house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a bachelor party weekend and we're very pleased. The house is a modern log cabin and everything was well appointed and worked well. Unfortunately, we had quite a bit of rain and a power outage during the stay. Luckily the gas grill had plenty of propane and there was plentiful rain water to flush toilets.

The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. We were planning on camping prior to our stay at the house, but it was pouring and we hit an extra 2 hours of traffic. They allowed us an early check in as there was nobody staying at the house the night before our scheduled check in. We really appreciated this and highly recommend this house for your stay.

Great Property & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here July 2015 (but forgot to write a review). The house is great with a big screened in porch. We had a great time. The walk to the beach took about 5 minutes with a 2 year old. That water was warm and the kids had a blast in the sand.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Close to Fun Outdoor Activies

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time at this house, which was clean and quiet. It also provided a great location to enjoy the White Mountains, as well as provided a great escape to the private beach on Lovewell Pond.

The owners are also extremely helpful and responsive, we appreciate all that they provided to us for our stay.

I would recommend this location for anyone interested in a relaxing environment, that is not far from the excitement offered in the North Conway/White Mountain region.
