Grill on the backyard deck, overlooking lush lawn. Or simply enjoy sitting around the fire pit, we furnish the first bundle of wood! Come and relax in our cool fresh air! This huge post and beam 17th century building was once the Swiftwater Village Grange, now updated to provide spacious, charming, convenient and comfortable vacation quarters; private and completely turnkey!
The Tree House is an excellent vacation property in the White Mountains. We typically get up early and go out for the whole day on vacation with our kids, but this property changed that. We didn't want to leave in the morning. There was so much space for everyone to relax, dance, play, cook, and do whatever made them happy. The place is spacious, well stocked, beautifully appointed, and FUN!
There is a grill, which we used often, a great table outside for enjoying meals and playing games, and a fabulous back yard to play, run and lay out a blanket to watch the stars at night.
We spend many days exploring The Big Eddy (beautiful swimming hole, waterfall on the river) directly across the street and through The Swiftwater Covered Bridge. The location is set back from the action, but within half hour or less you can be at Lost River, The Flume Gorge, Cannon Mountain, Loon Mountain, Whale Tail Water Park, Franconia Notch State Park, and so many more beautiful places. It's about an hour from Santa's Village and 1.5 from Storyland...but in the White mountains, that driving time goes by so fast! Don't forget to stop in Littleton (30 min away) to visit the longest candy counter in the world at Chutters, and definitely stop by Shillings, a beautiful brewery and delicious restaurant off the main road on the river there as well.
Susan was an excellent host. She always answered my questions promptly and had a great spirit about her.
The one thing missing for our family was washer and dryer, but we hand washed and made a make shift drying line, plus I overpacked anyway so it wasn't the be all end all.
We would 100% stay here again if Susan would have us! The kids have been talking about it since we got home.
Great property, especially for families. Huge center room for gathering and hanging out all together. Walk across the street to swimming hole. Comfortable furniture. Owners couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. I would highly reccommend this property.
