Simply gorgeous house!! Excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long ski weekend. The house and all of it's features are gorgeous. The kitchen is very well provisioned, which made cooking in lots of fun. The bathrooms are beautiful. And the living space is open, yet super cozy, really comfortable layout. It was nice for each couple to have their own bathroom. And George and Julie are fantastic hosts, very helpful and great communicators.

What a spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to apologize to George for a very, very late review.

Second, A chalet is not the first thing that comes to mind when one think of a summer getaway. And I feel that is a mistake! This place was just what we were looking for, secluded, large, well taken care of, with all the technology and comforts of home. George was very attentive before and after our trip (even when I kept pestering him about the types of granite and sinks he had in the house.. I had to know.. they were gorgeous!!!)

Anyway, I will be the first to admit, the place was too big for just the two of us, but this was a problem that I enjoyed, we treated the chalet as a home base for some summer adventures to Mt. Washington, Sunday River Golf Course, zip lining on the mountain, and we fished every-single-day!... fly rods, on the Sunday River and the Andro!!

2 minutes from the chalet is Sun Valley Sports. fly shop/canoe and kayak rentals... Many thanks to the owner Lisa who made our week a blast!

I would have to say the best part was having the town to ourselves. Clearly this is a ski area, but in the summer there is still much to do, fish, hike, bike, kayak, canoe, zip line (that was great)

Summer is great around Sunday River!!

If I could give it 7 Stars I would!!

Thanks Again

Ben and Jess

Owner's Response: Ben and Jess, Thanks for the very nice review and for being such good guests. It was our pleasure to answer questions about the property. It's great that you were interested! The Bethel/Sunday River area is indeed an excellent Summer and Fall destination and not well enough known for it. Maybe you can manage another getaway this Summer! Regards, George and Julie

School skiing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Locke Nest Chalet during the February school vacation and absolutely loved it. The house is amazing, well-appointed, cozy and impeccably clean. We did not want to leave it and even ate in in the evening. The owners were great -- attentive, responsive -- and take wonderful care of this house. We cannot wait to visit it again.

Wedding anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were immaculate. The gourmet kitchen is fully outfitted for any cooking abilities and I love cooking with gas. We relaxed in the elevated TV seating area in the evening to watch a movie and it also provided a lovely view of the first floor. On our second night we sunk into the leather couches with our magazines and a glass of wine while it was snowing outside. The beds were very plush and plenty of bedding to keep us cozy and warm. The location of the home is secluded and quiet. Being at the end of the development all you here is the wind blowing through the trees. The woods out back provided us with endless walking trails. For the skier it is just minutes from Sunday River. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a private getaway or a family retreat. There is ample sleeping for the extended family and friends. A great place to spend your vacation.

locke nest chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation. Took the family to this beautiful new, excellently furnished home for thanksgiving. We had 6 adults and one child. Plenty of space. We brought may things from home but to our surprise - we needed nothing except our food/and personal items. The fireplace space is so cozy. Quiet setting - skiied after 15 inches of new snow. Look forward to going back next year. Our families best vacation ever. The only draw back was the washer and dryer were not yet installed but are coming shortly and there is no cable television. This would have been fine accept for the macy's parade and football. We arranged a slingbox with no problems. Would highly recommend this wonderful home!!

Just Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I rented this house in September for a couple of days. We were getting married that weekend at the Grand Summit Resort at Sunday River. We wanted to rent a house not far from the mountain so we could have friends and family come over from out of town the days before the wedding. Let me start off by saying how gorgeous this house is. It has everything you could possibly want and need in a home rental. It was located at the end of a cul-de-sac and about a 5-10 minute drive from the mountain. The area is absolutely gorgeous and very private. The owners of the house are extremely friendly, quick to respond to any questions you may have and very helpful in regards to amenities in the area. The house itself is very cozy and immaculate. When you first walk in, you can smell the wood and you're wowed by the decor and the effort that went into designing this house. The kitchen is state of the art (I want to renovate my own kitchen at home to reflect this one). The living room, is so cozy with a great fireplace. The bedrooms are really nice with very comfortable beds and the basement is finished as well. There was no expense spared when this house was built. The first floor bathroom is exquisite. The shower is amazing with slate floors, glass doors and 2 shower heads. I could go on and on about this house, but I highly recommend that you check it out for yourself. My husband and I already plan on renting it every year for our anniversary, and we can't wait! Thank you so much to the Feinberg's for renting this to us. It helped make our wedding weekend a HUGE success and we can't imagine renting another place. We are still talking about the 'Lockness Chalet' to this day. Our family and friends were amazed by the beauty of this house as well. Thanks again and we will see you next September!! :-)
