Beautiful home, nice location

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home, well maintained with everything you need for a nice vacation. It's in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by woods. We stayed in the summertime. It's about a hour away from Mount Washington, near easy river rafting and some nice hiking areas.

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.
