Why Lois Maraia chose New Hampshire

I fell in love with the vistas, spent a great deal of time building this home. I love to create and I enjoy the details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spent 3 nights at this gorgeous property. It is immaculate and luxurious. The caretaker Kevin is extremely helpful and answers any questions you may have. Since it was March during our stay there wasn't too much to do and there is no Jacuzzi or pool ...however the amazing "movie/game room certainly makes up for that. The best room we've ever seen. The builder did it right! Shopping at North Conway is only a 10-15 drive away. Would love to go there during summer months.....Thank you Grand Home!!!!

Amazing house...amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

A few of my college friends and I do a  mini "reunion" with our families every 2 years and this year we stayed at the Grand White Mountain House...we couldn't have been happier!  The house is absolutely amazing...the grand living room with wood burning fireplace, the  enormous game room, the master bed/bath, the huge deck overlooking the mountains, the grounds...everything was perfect.  

An added bonus was that the house came fully stocked with everything we needed.  All we needed to do was bring our personal belongings and food/drink...everything else was covered.  

Lois, the owner was extremely helpful and very responsive.  She answered all of our questions and made sure we had everything we needed.  Kevin, the caretaker was also great!  He was extremely friendly, answered all our questions and tended to our every need.  He made it that much more enjoyable to stay at this wonderful property.   

We look forward to spending more time at the Grand White Mountain home and can't wait to return!

Amazing property. Secluded, beautiful, full of amenities, peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

This house was huge and perfect for my 12-person wedding party (including my husband and me). The main fireplace is absolutely gorgeous.The view is just breathtaking. Coffee on the big porch in the mornings was heaven. It had every kitchen appliance you could need. The game room was amazing, though there were only 6 theater chairs and with a group of 12 that wasn't ideal. Each of the 5 couples (plus 2 kids) had ample privacy in their own nook of the house so we weren't stepping over everyone all the time. The kitchen table with the leaves pulled out sat us all so we could have large family meals. This house made our wedding week very special. It truly was the perfect place for us, and a hidden gem in Eaton.

I gave this house 4 stars bc there were some drawbacks that aren't necessarily addressed in the description: 1) The driveway is very steep. A couple cars got stuck climbing the gravel driveway and required lots of maneuvering to get them out. I can't even imagine going up the driveway in snow/ice without a powerful AWD vehicle, so be aware. 2) The owners have lots of stuff in this house. I've stayed in other vacation rentals before, and this is the first one where I felt I was almost intruding on the owners' privacy because of everything that was here. For instance, there is a very full liquor cabinet which we couldn't touch, and the master bedroom closet is over half full of their clothes and other things packed in (granted, there was a sheet hanging up to separate the full back of the closet with the empty front of the closet, but it was still odd). The bathroom closet also had lots of toiletries in it, so much so that I was confused if I could use them or not (other houses have the necessities stocked explicitly for guests). 3) The yard has lots of ticks. Granted, this is New Hampshire and ticks are a thing, but it made the yard unusable. We took some pictures in the yard after the ceremony (because it's quite beautiful, without knowing about the tick problem), and after 30 minutes in the grass, 2 large ticks had crawled up my wedding dress. And 4) This place is impossible to find at night. GPS doesn't really get you there anyway. And there are no street lights on the main dirt road. One of the couples had to arrive at night, and we wound up having to go out and find them because they weren't able to find the place in the dark.

Overall, though, we really did have a tremendous time here, and I wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else

Amazing House!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was as good as it gets. The pictures are fantastic but don't do it justice. The house is enormous and just amazing. We did a multifamily trip and everyone had plenty of room to spread out and all of the sleeping areas have their own bathroom. The game room is amazing for kids and adults alike and slightly separated which allowed the grown ups some quiet time by the fire. We had such a blast cooking big dinners in the fantastically appointed kitchen. We wanted for nothing the entire trip. I would highly recommend this home!!

Beautiful, peaceful, plenty of room, gorgeous mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this house. It was spacious, luxurious, and has every amenity available for cooking! The views from the deck were breathtaking and it was very peaceful and quiet. The house is conveniently located near local area hikes. The media/game room was a favorite room - from ping pong, darts, poker, movies, something for everyone and plenty of space to relax and have a good time. The bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and comfortable. We would definitely be interested in returning here.

Mansion on the Mountain. The perfect getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location. This was our second time! Outstanding accommodations with a view that is majestic. Close enough to North Conway to enjoy some shopping but secluded enough for a well deserved getaway. The layout of the property is perfect for some light hiking or just staying on the deck that surrounds the upper level of the house. The house was absolutely pristine and we were greeted by the property manager who was on call should we need anything. I would absolutely recommend this house and can't wait to go back again.
