About Kim & Mike Hanf

We live right in Twin Mountain, so we know all the great places to go in the area no matter what you are seeking. Kim is an avid hiker and has hiked all 48 of NH's 4000+ foot mountains so she can suggest a trail depending on your experience and fitness level. Mike enjoys going out to view wildlife so he can give you tips on where to go and when for your best chances of seeing a moose or bear. We have an 8 year old son, so we know the best family-friendly places to visit.

Kim & Mike Hanf purchased this house in 2015

Why Kim & Mike Hanf chose New Hampshire

Adorable and affordable place to stay. Enjoy the comforts of home with the kitchen and dining area. Short drive to Storyland, Santa's Village, Clark's Trading Post, and Whale's Tales in the summer, and the ski areas in the winter - Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Loon Mountain, Attitash and Wildcat. Hundreds of miles of hiking trails for all ability levels. Lots of places to splash in the river, or just sit by the water and read a book. Take the beautiful drive through Crawford Notch to North Conway for the day. Snow mobile trails are just around the corner. Storage for your ski equipment and snow machines in the garage when not in use.

2.5 Bathrooms!

What makes this house unique

A note about us and staying in our home. We run our own volunteer charity in the area that provides new and quality used clothing to children in need. We work with the local schools and police to identify children who need proper clothing. We call it "With My Own Two Hands". We accept donations and ask that people who come to stay in our house bring with them the clothing that they have outgrown, for children aged newborn up to age 18. So, if you book our home, bring your donation clothing with you and leave it in bags inside the house when you leave. See our website for more information and info concerning what we do and why. Thanks for thinking of us.

Mike is also a volunteer at the North Country Boys And Girls Club.

When you stay at our home, you help support a family who supports our community.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for the wonderful house that you provided for our vacation. It is located in the best location; near Santa's Village, not far from Story Land and Clark's Trading Post, and right around the corner from Littleton the home of my childhood all favorite book Pollyanna. I was thrilled to be able to see this town and take a picture of Pollyanna and visit this town. I would suggest putting this listing in your ad for your house. We were going to go to Whales Tail but instead went to Jay's Peak which was absolutely wonderful also. The water park is just big enough to spend a day and it was less than 2 hours drive. The house itself was great and everything worked perfectly. Unfortunately, my daughter did not see a real moose, however we did see lots of moose and bears and other animals around the house. 😀 The beds were very comfortable and the kids used all of them. The master (which was mine since I paid) was great! Again thank you very much. You have my permission to post this. Again thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Spotless cozy house

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying the house is spotless! We walked in and felt right at home immediately. We came for the weekend with our son, daughter in law and grandson and were really thrilled with this home. My grandson was so sad to leave and didn't even want to get out of the car at home because he wanted to go back to the vacation house! They left him the sweetest little gift when we arrived, complete with a note written directly to him. Really a lovely touch and he carted that around all weekend. Plenty of games to keep you busy and my grandson was tickled to find a giant firetruck puzzle to do over and over....and over again. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook if you choose. Plenty of glasses, dishes, pots, and pans. It is close to the main road so very convenient to head out in any direction. The owner, Mike was fantastic with communication, getting back to us in under an hour when we emailed originally. I wouldn't hesitate to book this home if we are ever traveling to the area again!

Lovely home at a very reasonable rate

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Four bedrooms allowed us and our children to be comfortable. The two bedrooms on the main level have doors while the bedrooms in the loft and basement have more of an open setup. The home was clean and there was enough area to relax, and they have plenty of board games and videos. Mike the owner is really on top of things and responds very quickly to any communication. The home is right off of a main road. Would definitely stay again.

Clean, spacious, and convenient to Santa's Village

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay close to Santa's Village. Comfortable, clean, and easy to feel at home. We had four adults and two kids and we had more than enough room. Could easily have fit another couple in there (though they'd be on twins). The kitchen had everything needed to make meals, and it was nice to have a downstairs where the kids could be while the adults were upstairs. All in all a very nice stay. Thanks!

Great, comfortable house with plenty of room, and very close to Bretton Woods.

  • 5 of 5

Great, comfortable house with plenty of room for our family, and close to Bretton Woods. Location is very convenient and quiet near major roads (didn't have to worry about steep, snowy side roads). and we could go to the shopping center and supermarkets in Littleton. Kids really liked the loft sleeping area with the spiral staircase, and the laundry room and downstairs entry next to driveway was very useful. Everything went well. We all enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly come back again.

Wonderful visit to the mountains, and what a beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

Went to Twin Mountains area for a wedding and felt a house rental would be better than a set of hotel rooms for the family. The house was in excellent condition, it fit the group of 8 very well with plenty of extra room. The location was easy to get too off the major route in the area. Weather did not cooperate so we spent a bit more time in the house so we were very glad it was so warm and cozy. Thanks will rent again if we are in that area for sure.

Located in the heart of the White Mountains! Within 15 minutes of Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Franconia Notch. Snowmobile trails almost right outside the door and numerous hiking trails nearby. Santa's Village, Storyland, Clark's Trading Post, Mt. Washington, the Kancamangus Highway, Whale's Tales and North Conway and other attractions just a short drive away.

Twin Mountain is a winter play ground with two of the major ski resorts just around the corner and ski mobile trails as well. Spring time is fantastic for wildlife viewing, especially moose and bears. Enjoy the crystal clear rivers in summer for a cool dip and of course, the foliage in the fall in the mountains is outstanding. Enjoy a beautiful ride along the Kancamangus highway. The house has 1 master bedroom with king bed

1 bedroom with queen bed

1 open loft with two twin beds

1 lower level sleeping area with:

Twin on top bunk

Full on bottom bunk

Full size futon

If using your GPS, try using Twin Mountain first, if that does not work, then try Carroll.
